About Me

My photo
Where do I begin? I guess At the beginning! I live in beautiful Tasmania, Australia with my wonderful hubby, Matthew and our four angels (part time devils) Isaac, Reuben, Isabella, and Charlotte. Currently I'm a stay-at-home mum and I absolutely love that. Nothing else compares. I'm also studying the Master of Teaching part-time and I'm serving as the relief society president of our ward. I love being outside, especially in summer. I love big windows & lots of light. I love swimming, running and mowing the lawn! my favourite vegetable is carrots (or potatoes if mum's baked them) and I love fresh fruit salad. My most favourite thing to do is spend time with my precious family.

My Pop

Anzac day always makes me think about my Pop William Henry Brown (aka Bill) 
and his dad, Gus.  Both of them served in the World Wars and
 I am extremely grateful for their service and sacrifice.  I took these photos of Charlotte with Pop at Bella's baptism recently.  I was caught out a bit with the moment between them and wasn't really ready to take the photos but I snapped anyway because it was so beautiful.  They didn't exchange a single word, just smiles and giggles.  Pop loves being around his grand and great grand children and when moments like these happen I am even m
ore grateful that we live in such a beautiful free country 
and that I have a wonderful loving family.  
I think these pictures, although very amateur, depict the Anzac spirit and what they fought for.

Love you Pop x
