I love our little home nestled among the green hills and neighbour to the jersey cows. We are less then half an hour from where I was born and raised and the memories that surround me warm my heart. It is the first home Luke and I bought together, we have lived here through our engagement, planned our wedding here and brought our frog home here. We have made many life long friends and are within minutes to some of Australia's most beautiful forests and beaches.
Yet there is a gentle hum within me yearning for a change that I can no longer deny. We spent our Easter celebrating and loving life in Bellingen, my hubby's home town. It is a simple town where its residents walk to a slower beat and stop to appreciate life and each other. People believe in organic, clean living and the hills are lined with fresh produce. I can see myself and my family easily fitting into place in this sleepy town and feel its gentle pull more and more each time we visit.
Here are a few snaps from our time in Bello and Easter celebrations. I am sure you will see why a piece of me is in this beautiful town...
