Hi! I’m Michelle and this is my debut into the big wide world of the interweb! I live in Perth, Western Australia (one of the most beautiful cities in the world). I am a Mama in training (do you ever get fully qualified?) with 2 beautiful and challenging boys aged 5 and 6. I am a brand new homesteader, the home fire burner of a FIFO family and a very occasional Intensive Care Nurse. I am also a writer. Up until I started writing my blog earlier this year I would have said I was a dormant writer, but now, I am writer.
The slow living concept has evolved for me over the last 2 years. I was relatively healthy and quite fit too, but something was not quite right with how I was feeling and with how I was managing my kids. The seed of change was planted. It began with how I ate, and has grown to encompass almost every aspect of my life. We now grow a lot of our own food, we are REAL clean food junkies, we make everything from scratch and we avoid all chemicals in and around our home. I have also established a range of new life habits to calm my mind and nourish my soul, and I pour a whole lot of positive energy into living a simple and memorable life with my kids.
