The older I get, the more life seems to speed up. Can you believe that it’s been a whole year since this happened? I remember lying on that air bed, watching all my savings exit my bank account, leaving my job, handing over the keys of our beloved car and rental home just like it was yesterday. I remember all the kind words of encouragement as self-doubt and fear began to creep in – and oh boy, did we need those words. It’s not been an easy road, this journey to settling in Aus. We’ve had the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. It’s been the toughest year of my life. And that’s totally to be expected. I wouldn’t change a single thing. Australia is an incredible country and every day, we feel so lucky to be able to call it home. As I sit and type this, I am surrounded by boxes as we begin another leg of our journey to a new home (hopefully for a bit longer this time as I am sooo DONE with moving), we have possible career changes, big travel plans and even bigger life plans on the horizon. Somewhere in between, life will settle down for us and I’m hoping I can find more time. More time to dedicate to this corner of the internet that I love so much. More time to enjoy this amazing country. More time to just be.
I had a really hard time narrowing down my favourite photos over the past year, but here is just a taster. Make yourself comfortable!
