Soulful Sunday #29: Happy Fathers Day


Dad greeting me into the world xx

Welcome to my twenty-ninth instalment of ‘Soulful Sundays’. A weekly share where I post a roundup of soulful reflections, each including recipes, songs, quotes, blogs I have read and/or any other inspirational discoveries to sooth the soul.

For me, Sunday’s have become a day of quiet contemplation and simple pleasures. A time to reflect on the week gone by and to consider my hopes and dreams for the week ahead.

My hope is to extend some love outward and to share some simple pleasures with anyone who cares to receive them.

Soul Reflections

Wishing my Dad a Happy Fathers Day in the sky. Heaven knows how much you are missed each and every day; how grateful I am to have had you in my life, and how privileged I feel to get to call you my Dad…

Thank you for blessing me with your love and for always being my guiding light. Loving you always, forgetting your never xx

Soul Strolls

During the Queen’s birthday weekend here in Melbourne last week, we took a day trip to Daylesford to enjoyed a lakeside lunch at The Boathouse. The sun was shining, the lake was peaceful and still, and the food was yummo! The perfect get away we’d been craving. We strolled around the town perusing the antique shops and boutiques.

The simplest things makes life so rich.

Soul Food

Today I would like to share with you this Raw-ish Caramel Ginger-nut Slice from one of my favourite health and wellness sites. It looks incredible. I’m always looking for healthy alternatives to satisfy my sweet tooth, and this one seems divine! I hope you have as much fun trying it as I will.


Soul Music

In memory of Dad, I am sharing Bob Dylan’s Forever Young. Dad was a huge Dylan fan, and this track, which was played at Dad’s funeral, reminds me of the way Dad lived his life. He will always be forever young in our hearts.

Soul Sisters

I am sharing a beautiful post titled To The Beautiful Women Who Is Striving To Be Skinny by My Own Private Idaho. A powerful piece that acknowledges the way women become so entangled by the numbers on the scale. Here we have a stunning reminder of our inner worth and beauty.

I wish you all a peaceful Sunday. On this day, may we remember our Fathers past and present and send them peace and love.

In love and light,

Hayley xx

  1. Hello lovely Hayley,
    Firstly, such a beautiful tribute to your dear Dad. Thank you for sharing him here.

    I can’t believe it… we must have passed you or sat at that gorgeous lake cafe nearby your table! I agree, it’s a beautiful place.
    I’ve kept the recipe for the ginger slice. It sounds wonderful.
    Enjoy your school holidays fast approaching. Hugs from Di 🙋🏻💕

      Wow! Crazy to think you were there also! I hope you enjoyed Daylseford as much as we did…

      I shall be working at the holiday club for much of the school holidays – but that's ok, I have fun with the kiddies. I also have a trip to Sydney fast approaching so that will be a welcomed break!

      Wishing you a peaceful start to your week Di 🙂 xx

        Yes, it was a perfect weekend and the weather was awesome too.

        Oh I see. You have work during the holidays… I’m sure they will love you there and you will receive much appreciation from the children.

        Hope you have a great time in Sydney, and I’ll ‘see’ you in another post soon, my friend 💐💜💜

      • It’s a beautiful spot isn’t it? We celebrated our wedding anniversary in various places in Daylesford for the first ten or so years of our marriage. ❤️ xo
