I’m joining Maxabella loves in her weekend grateful today….
We are heading towards 100 little homes ‘released’ and this weekend we are grateful for all of the amazing friends that have offered to ‘release’ a home for us.
I love that so many people are willing join in and ‘release’ a home of their own. I love that we get to see a snippet of their life, thoughts and different locations around the country (world)…. and I love that this was a little part of our project that took us by surprise. How wonderful for my munchkins to look back when they are older and see all of this kindness.
Home 93 has been ‘released’ by the lovely Kim. Pop back over and have a read of Music an earlier home of hers.
Thank you Kim, we hope someone finds it xx
This little home was ‘released’ at the Perth Airport as we were arriving home from our Christmas break.
Distance is something that is regularly discussed in our life as we decided four years ago to make the move to Western Australia. The decision was to come and live here for 12 months and after arriving we loved it so much that we have not moved back to Melbourne as yet.
While living in WA we have had a few life accomplishments such as buying our home, getting married and having a child. This has resulted in many conversations on distance, below are a just a few hot topics;
The distance between family and friends (and the time spent in between being able to see them all)- although it is a cheap holiday for them.
The travelling back and forth at holiday times and everything that goes with that (a lot harder now with a child in tow)
Getting married – whether to have it over here, or go back to Melbourne – which resulted in eloping!
Having a baby – “Are you coming home now?” seemed to be a very popular question and still is.
The fact that our son will grow up without all his immediate family being so close.
The handiness of a babysitter when needed.
Travelling within this beautiful state of Western Australia, there is so much to see and do.
Will we ever go back home and when?
Distance for us is both a happy and a sad word, and for the mean time we are happy with where we are and will continue to enjoy it while we can, and to those that think we are too far away; we are still in the same country, you can fly here in the same time (or less) than it takes to drive to a holiday destination within the same state, it may not be the cheapest flight but you do get a cheap holiday (free accommodation), and there is always skype!
Thank you again Kellie, for this opportunity to free another home and we have one more to do that is still in the “under construction” phase ……….. Stay tuned
