Patches of Sunlight

About Us

Hi. Thanks for visiting Patches of Sunlight. We are a married couple with five kids. Aussie-born but New Zealand has been our home since 2008.

Living here has taught us to value the patches of sunlight interspersed between overcast days, drizzle, light rain, heavy rain, wind, storms, the occasional tornado and other weather variables. We love it here.

On a deeper level, we enjoy finding patches of sunlight in the form of thoughts, ideas, stories, experiences, insights and more. Anything that is good, true, wholesome. If it lifts our hearts, helps us think, smile and hope, then we welcome it. 

Patches of Sunlight is a place to find, bask and share. We'd love to hear from you.

Best wishes,
Laura and Rich.
