Welcome home

Finally I have internet! I have been dying to share my little piece of paradise with you. We moved in a week ago and I could not be happier. The picture above is the view I have outside my deck.

It is where I sit and have a cup of tea.

The picture above is the view of my driveway. Yes, we live on a dirt road. It is so awesome!

We went for a short walk today and saw the local kangaroos in the paddock.

Children playing in the mud and calling themselves country children! I love that the city is an hour's train trip away, the school is a ten minute drive away and the country is, well, in my back yard.

No speeding here.

A swing in a tree a few steps outside our house.

And the beginning of my yoga room.

I feel like a different person here. I feel like I have come home. Everywhere I look, I see trees. I do my work in the kitchen and I see my children playing on the trampoline outside. The birds don't stop singing all day. I have a smile on my face. All. Day. Long.

Life is good, yes it is. I followed my dreams and I got here.

Don't ever let anyone tell you that your dreams are not real or that they cannot come true. Because they do.

Blessings to you.
