Things may quiet down over the next couple of weeks as we travel to be with family and relax after deadlines and uni assessment, but we don't think that is such a bad thing! Hope you are enjoying some reflection, adventure, nature, family and good reading over the break. Thank you for making 2018 wondrous! – Henrietta & the team

Have you noticed your family is a little out of the ordinary? We love to hear about families who do things a little differently!
We want your stories of heartache, hilarity and hope as well as ideas on how to stay close friends no matter how far apart life takes you!
People can get addicted to just about anything as a way to manage and cope, get control of their life or avoid their problems. Have you struggled with addiction? We are keen to hear your story.
Have you ever taken part in a random act of kindness? Or has a sneaky stranger done something nice for you? We love hearing about people being surprisingly good to each other. Yahoo!
Have you come through some gnarly family situations stronger than before? We would love to hear how you handled it. Did you hide in your room? Scream into your pillow? Lean on your friends?
Have you tried out a new hobby only to discover that it wasn’t quite your cup of tea? What was it? What made it hard? What made it hilarious?
Being the big sister can come with its perks and its pitfalls! We want to know how you do it!
Your first job can open your eyes to a whole new world. How did you get yours? What did it involve? Did you have any stuff ups? What things surprised you?
Changing schools and being the ‘new kid’ might seem terrifying, but it can also make for a rad story! Write about what it was like for you!
Do you have a best friend of the the four-legged, furry or feathered kind? We want to hear about them!
Family holidays can make for some of the best (or nutty) memories! We want to hear about yours. Are you roadtrippin’ to see the rellies? Camping out under the stars? Or living it up overseas?
If you have been doing something long enough you tend to get pretty good at it! We’d love to know if what you’re expert at, what that’s like and how you got there.
Sometimes you’d like to live differently to the way your family does, but it’s hard to do that while you’re still living under their roof!
If you have been on an adventure and have taken some high quality photos along the way we would love to share in your experience!
