I have hinted a few times that we have LOTS of great things going on at the moment, but I have been saving the best news until now. I AM PREGNANT with baby number two. We are so excited. We are around 15 weeks now and the constant nausea seems to have finally faded as we move into the second trimester. It's wonderful timing as we settle into our new home and look forward to fun times ahead...

Introducing our own little piece of heaven. This is where we moved to. It's a lovely 230 acre patch that is ours, all ours. Like so many people we know, we have spent the last few years dreaming of a more self sufficient life on the land - where we can grow our own food, and live a healthier lifestyle. It might be a little run down in and in need a
little LOT of love and care, but it's ours! Here's a bit of a snap shot of the property....and YES we FINALLY have some chickens!!! Yay!

I have been meaning to tell you about our wonderful weekend all week. We have recently discovered the Southern Highlands and on Saturday we decided to go and check out Bowral. We never quite made it, as we were distracted along the way... First stop was the GOULBURN markets:

I have finally bought myself a new DSLR camera and can't believe the quality after relying on my smart phone for so long. I am still using AUTO everything until I brush up on my photography skills, but I am really excited with the results. My cousin put me onto this activity and Jade loved it. It's just coloured icing on some plain biscuits but she loved it and I didn't have to worry about her eating it while she played! I just need to get some sprinkles now and we'll be doing this one again for sure.

One of the best things about moving to a new area is exploring the local surrounds. Today we ventured to Queanbeyan to check out Benedict House. It's a former girls boarding school and convent that has transformed into a gorgeous cafe with little rooms full of great gift and handmade items. Not only do they host events and classes there, but it's also famous for it's high tea sessions, (which unfortunately were booked out for us today) - we'll know to book next time!
