The Dream

"If my mind can conceive it and my heart can believe it then I can acheive it."Mohammed Ali

This is our space to help visualise and plan our dream.

Just what is that?  Hopefully it will evolve....dreams are fluid and ever changing but what we do know is that we plan to build a lovely family home on our 13 acres of land.   At the moment this family lives in Melbourne.  I love Melbourne, but after 9 years here and two children later we felt that we wanted something different.  Both of us have lived in the country for some aspect of our lives, so the country life is no stranger to us.   So without hesitation we found the perfect land close by a beautiful historic country town.

We dream of planting a vineyard, living off the land by growing veggies and having our own chooks.   Giving our children the freedom to enjoy, learn and appreciate their surroundings.  Being part of a community and slowing the pace of life to enjoy simple pleasures.

There are so many ideas that we talk about and discuss that it made sense to record our journey, our ideas and inspiration along the way. 

Part of me is excited about this big adventure, and part of me is nervous.  But what I do know is that we want to create a life experience for our family that they will love, cherish and remember forever.
