Like a kid.

November 18, 2014

  When we were off on our camping travels the kids played with other kids who were camping with their families. As they do. I love how kids are just “Hi, I’m seven. Let’s build a castle together.”. Mostly. For my kiddos there is often the conversation of some kid pointing out that something they […]

So you want to move to Melbourne

October 1, 2014

  I moved to Melbourne in 2001. I guess I’m pretty local now. The first few years were tricky and sometimes I’m still reminded that I live her but I’m not FROM here. Melbourne is one awesome place to live. The best city in the world, or so they say. I certainly love it and […]

My favorite time of year

September 24, 2014

  It’s no secret that I miss living where I grew up, where my family is. If things were different I’d live there if I could. There are a million reasons, but a big one is the weather. I’m not good in the cold and I hate the short days of winter here in Victoria. […]
