life tales

an abundance of love, laughter and chocolate

5 April, 2015

A small country church, a gorgeous café, seaside boutiques, a minor breakdown and an abundance of chocolate. Our Easter celebrations definitely continued in the best way. 

Although an early morning start is nothing unique for us, I absolutely loved the family getting up together at the crack of dawn to see what the Easter bunny had left us, except for a trail of mess (yes, the Easter bunny still comes to our house). A little bit of morning exercise soon followed to make us feel just a little better about pre-breakfast chocolate indulgences.

After heading to the Sunshine Coast for church, we ended up having an incredible early lunch at the gorgeous Mooloolaba café The Velo Project. The food, relaxed atmosphere and friendly service at The Velo Project was absolutely fantastic, as was the quirky decor. I highly recommend checking them out if you are at the Sunshine Coast. The best thing about an early lunch meant plenty of time to explore the boutiques along the Mooloolaba esplanade. My sister and I both had our Happy as Flynn bags, and were stopped several times throughout the day to tell people where we got them and to even write down the name a few times. 

Although we had a minor incident involving the check engine light (which we were a little hyper-vigilent about following our highway breakdown debacle a few weeks earlier) and RACQ (who arrived within 5 minutes of calling them) on the drive home, it didn’t take long for us to get back on the road again back to Brisbane and the chocolate. Speaking of which… It might take a while for us to get through it, but I’m up for the challenge. 

What? Well, someone has to eat it.
