When I was 19 I felt the need for a change. I had just finished my first year at uni studying education and had been in school since I was 5. I needed a breather year to go and do some exploring and adventuring and decided to move to Queensland. Carli and I traveled and stayed with a family friend on the Sunshine Coast for a couple of weeks. During that time Carli decided to move to Sydney closer to family and get on with her studies and I made friends with a beautiful family who lived closer to Brisbane and started boarding with them. It was SO much fun - 3 teenage girls and a beautiful Mama living together. They treated me like one of the family and I have never felt more loved or included in a family outside my own than in theirs.
After almost a year of living with them my heart lead me to Sydney where I embarked upon a new adventure (this time, more of an eternal significance!) but I still keep in contact with this special family in Queensland.
A few months ago, one of my little "sisters" had her first baby. It took me a long time, but I finally sent of this pressie last week.
I was so happy with the way it turned out - what baby boy wouldn't love a funky rockin' guitar onesie? I'm thinking Tommy also needs one pronto...it would only be fitting, considering his name sake :)
