Beau and I have moved back to the bush in Queensland. And when I say bush I mean, 45 minutes from the nearest supermarket, no mobile phone reception, dirt roads, 4WD’s, farmers and hippies all in the one road, Chinaman Creek Road. We’ve moved back to build a house on my parents property along with my sister, her partner and their 9 month old baby Emre. The property is large about 9 hectares so each house is well away from the other. You can’t even see them from each other! There’s a creek that winds through the property, which in a good year runs almost all year. My parents fall under the hippy category. Kind of. They make nesting boxes for hollow dependant fauna. And their house (The house I grew up in), is made from recycled timber and rocks found in the creek. My dad made it with virtually no money. 

We’ve been here for 12 short weeks. I was sceptical at first, not sure if I’ve survive without my cafes and best friend Carla. I didn’t have a lot of high hopes. Where will I get my coffee? Where will I buy my clothes? (I’m a lover of Melbourne based brands) How will I know what interesting adventures Carla has been up to? The answers; My dad invested in a good coffee machine, he makes the best tea and coffee. We call him the drink man. No one goes without being offered a tea or a coffee in their house. Turns out most of the labels I like have online shops. And living out in the bush with no real expenses means more money to shop with! Keeping up with Carla’s life through texts and occasionally a phone call is the only real downfall. But a visit to Melbourne in December should fix my desperation to sit for hours on end drinking tea talking about nothing in particular. 

All in all, I get to build a house with the love of my life and be surrounded by my gorgeous and supportive family. Not to mention all the time I get to be creative! I couldn’t ask for anything more! 

Beau
I was yours and you were mine from the moment we met. There has never been anyone that was more perfect for me. When I’m with you I feel so perfectly at ease. Our future is so bright; building a house, exploring Australia and the world and a few more little surprises ;) 
I love you Dreamy Beau, I am so thankful to have you.

Beau likes riding his bike. A casual bike ride for Beau is anything from 30km to 80km…. 
Yeah, he likes riding his bike.

Beau in the botanical gardens. He developed and scanned this roll of film for me. It’s my last roll from Melbourne. Thank you Beau, you are incredible!
