Just in case my life hasn't been INSANE enough lately... this happened yesterday. On my way to my beautiful friend @heidimreid's wedding, a lady pulled out in front of me, driving 55km/h I swerved, tyres screeched, there was a loud crash, airbags went off and instantly my neck and back were in horrid pain. πŸ˜₯ A beautiful couple saw everything and rushed over and calmed me down while the paramedics arrived, all the while I'm holding my neck straight saying "I need to get to my friends wedding!!" 😩😩😩 Laying in the ambulance I wondered if I was dreaming it. So weird. Spent the afternoon at The Alfred getting tests and wearing this stunning neck piece πŸ‘ŒπŸ» No fractures just muscle tears and very very sore. Thank you to those who prayed. Honestly, I am thanking GOD for His protection it could have been so much worse if I hadn't swerved. So thankful for my Mum and Dad and sisters who are so flipping incredible. Xx @thealfredhospital thank you your ED guys are amazing β€οΈπŸš‘

In about 5 hours, in South Africa, my beautiful NYC sister Whitney is marrying her prince, Christo. πŸ‘°πŸ»
In this pic we are on the rooftop of the Hudson Hotel in New York City last September, celebrating her engagement. ✨
THIS, my friends is a fairytale story. And Whit, you have been SO courageous and brave this past year!!! I have loved watching your love story unfold. ❀️
You are so special to me. Our New York adventures have been like a movie, and I am so thankful for your friendship.
I am so sad I can’t be there to celebrate with you tonight. 😭
My heart is with you and I’m so excited for your new adventure. :) βœ¨πŸŒΈπŸ’πŸ’™πŸŒˆ

She would have been married to her sweetheart, my Papa, for 71 years yesterday. So we bought her flowers and had beautiful cups of Buckingham Palace tea in China teacups πŸŒΈπŸ’•
Fairytale love affairs that last a lifetime do exist, I have seen it with my own eyes.
My Nanny and Papa met through a photograph during the war. Nanny’s friend had a photo of her boyfriend and Papa was also in the photo. β€œThis is Fred why don’t you write to him?!” Her friend said.
So she did.
And for two years they wrote letters back and forth. He was in Darwin in the RAAF Radar and she was in the WAF in Sydney.
They both met each other’s families before meeting each other. :) They married on January 11, 1947 and that December my Dad was born!
Of course she gets teary and misses him dearly. I can’t imagine what that must feel like, losing a love like that. A lifetime of memories... but the beauty that weaves its way through this story, even through the pain, is so precious.
Happy anniversary Fred and Joy. :)

Sometimes the darkest, most confusing road is actually the most beautiful road to freedom.
Quite often pain is the most exquisite gift. It’s priceless and unquestionably difficult, but just like in this picture by @andy_best, beauty hidden by darkness and fog is eventually revealed. 🌸
Flowers in Alaska and Canada are so much more beautiful because they experience complete death through an icy cold winter season, and it’s because of these defined seasons (as opposed to warmer climates where the flowers don’t die but grow year round) their beauty is FAR more extravagant and quite unlike anything I have ever seen before.
Never underestimate what is going on in you under the surface. :) I am discovering this beauty from my personal journey and I send you encouragement today.
Don’t give up.

We fight but we don’t fight alone :) Just wanted to share this for someone who needs it. It encouraged me. I love what this image portrays. Battle scars, but a deep beauty and strength. Someone who has been kicked and knocked down but is still standing. xoxo
Keep fighting. Don’t give up.
We’re stronger than we think we are. :) πŸ’™ xoxo @lisabevere

The princess in the middle turned 15 today. 😱 Emmy I remember the day you were born (I was camping in Lorne when I got the call!) and that was the day I became an aunty for the first time. You have been a delight to our lives for 15 years. You are strong and fearless and creative and brave and you amaze us all with your kindness and your sweet heart. You are always thinking of others (hello, giving presents to others on your birthday!) and you are so precious to us.
Emily Madeleine, happy birthday darling girl! πŸ’•πŸŒΈ
Love you to the moon and back πŸŒ™

I have come to a conclusion. πŸ€” It may not seem groundbreaking but it’s been life changing and freeing for me.
Pain and joy can coexist.
So many of us are taught not to feel pain. And if we feel pain we don’t have faith.
This is so untrue. :)
Also insta doesn’t help.
Always happy always shiny.
Yes, life is sometimes like this, but not always.
We know this is true but still we beat ourselves up because it β€œseems” our life falls short from what see on our little metal screens as we flick up up and up.
We feel guilty about feeling emotions or the pain that comes when we dig deep to deal with the hard things we have faced in life.
So many of us have been through traumatic things, but we don’t award ourselves the kindness and generosity we deserve so we can grow. :)
I have come to the conclusion that facing emotions and pain is not weak.
It’s so flipping BRAVE.
And there is SO much beauty in it!!! It’s actually the truest we can be to ourselves and the most REAL us.
So here’s to being brave and real and facing things and sitting in the hard, painful processing times and at the same time enjoying ridiculous joy from fun things like spending time with friends and family.
I’m doing this now and although it’s the hardest season of my life and I’ve never felt so uncomfortable, I’ve also never felt more alive.
Or like me.
Heck Jesus was in tortuous pain as he endured the cross yet at the SAME time he was overcome with joy as he thought of you. .
I have found talking to someone is super helpful and the best way to grow and move forward.
I think it’s soooooo hilarious how there is such a stigma in Australia to counseling or seeing a psychologist. πŸ™„ Anyone else feel that!?
Um, it’s so silly! Talking things through is so healing and life-giving.
So be encouraged... if you’re feeling overwhelmed talk to someone. :)
Just wanted to be real and share my journey as I know so many of you are facing the same thing.
Be encouraged you are not alone in this :):) xoxo β€œA thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices...” Emmanuel. God with us.
I’m so thankful for HOPE.
Even a glimmer is enough ✨
Have a beautiful day and I hope you know how brave you are ;)
Nat xoxo

Here's to LIFE. ✨ Happy 70th to my Dad ✨ We surprised him for his 50th and 60th and I think he may have had an idea we were surprising him again. Dad you have endured and been brave and you never give up. You have been constant in our lives and we love you to the moon and back. Life is a gift. We don't know what is around the corner and every day is really a treasure. So thankful for your life Dad. πŸŒ™ Xo #barrygibbs #lookalike #makesureyouswipe πŸ‘‰πŸ» #youngdad
