Earlier in the year, Taryn Brumfitt‘s documentary Embrace screened at the New Zealand International Film Festival. It was a “one show only” deal and unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it to the screening.

She’s coming over to visit me for my birthday next week, and my birthday just happens to be on Mother’s Day – clearly a sign that I’m her greatest gift, right? View Post

I thought that with Easter just around the corner I’d share a few sweet treats that have been catching my eye…
