{this week i'm grateful for..} my life..

live the life you love...
... love the life you live

Ten years ago my then fiance and I decided to leave the States and head to Australia. We weren't quite sure whether it was going to be for a little while or a lifetime, but on this day 10 years ago we arrived and since made this place our home. 

We started off from scratch as I had sold almost everything I owned to move to the States and he came here with only two suitcases. Since then we have bought a house, got a car each, he has started and developed his business to now be the most sought after fish guy in the state. I finished off my degree and we now have two absolutely amazing little cherubs. 

So in a nutshell.. I'm just so incredibly grateful for the move we made and the life we now have. There are always things to do and to move forward towards.. but hey.. that's just life.
