The Aftermath...

I've been a bit quiet over the last week, losing motivation to post after the traumatic events that have occurred here in our hometown of Brisbane. While we have been lucky enough to escape the damages inflicted on so many families and businesses, we have felt somewhat guilty to carry on as normal. Our deepest heart-felt wishes go out to not only the Brisbane community, but people throughout the country, who have endured such incredible loss and heartache in the wake of the floods - you are in our thoughts and we pray that you have the love and support you need to get through this extremely trying time and the strength to begin to rebuild and overcome what this extreme weather has left behind.

Funds raised as part of the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal have reached $64,329,927 and due an overwhelming response to calls for help, clean-up volunteers in Brisbane were turned away yesterday. The way the community has come together to show support for one another, in such devastating circumstances is truly remarkable.

If you haven't already done so, please consider donating to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal here, or you can donate in person at most major banks, Coles Supermarkets and Australia Post.

With love to you and yours
