Hi, welcome to the world of Savour Me. My name is Kobie and this is me with my little man, Arlie. He is now four and totally makes my day, my life and my world.
Originally from Auckland, New Zealand and now happily content nestled in the seaside utopia of all that is Sumner, Christchurch. A beautiful village like community with the beach lapping at its doorstep. We moved back here in January this year after a couple of years away during the earthquakes. It is lovely to be here. Totally revitalising and heart warming. Each morning I wake, seagulls squawking their early morning shrills, pinching myself that this is a place in which values of ‘simplicity and outdoor lifestyle’ sing true to my soul and heart ideals.
I long for life to be uncluttered. For people to embrace simplicity. For the little things in life to be admired. It is all to easy to get caught up in the rush of life and the pace in which we all seem to operate in the world as it exists today. Bigger. Better. Faster. More. Sooo many wants. Too much commercialism. Too much processed food and easy convenience each shelf we look or every petrol station we stop at.
For Arlie, it warms my heart to see him scooter down the street, to dip his toes as the waves lap, to run into the ocean bare chested and kick soccer balls alongside people of all generations as they walk their dogs throughout the day. To be apart of this community is something special. Something I am grateful for. It is a timely reminder to breathe.
It is from discovering more about myself, who I am, my values, what makes my body tick and the desire to feed it with all things nourishing and uplifting, that Savourme has been brought to fruition.
This is my documented journey of foods that fill me with warmth, that avoid gluten, that nurture my wee boy, that heal the ails of the body, that will leave you longing to explore and discover what it is that fuels your body to be fulfilled and happy. And possibly create an addiction in you that sees you make your local farmers market your weekly playground for the freshest produce of every colour, shape and size.
In essence, this is a blog for those who like to dream. Those that are inspired by life and opportunities to create worthwhile moments within theirs.
