The country life

When you grow up in the country you often don’t really appreciate it. Both Ben and I grew up on farms, differing sizes and very differing experiences. One of the advantages I had was growing up in the Yarra Valley which at an hour from Melbourne gives you the best of both worlds.

Last weekend we had a wedding in Merricks North at Tussie Mussie Vineyard Retreat. Waking up to this view made me really pine for a country life.IMG_20150329_100749

For me, the dream country existence would be a lovely farmhouse with wraparound verandah, fireplace, lots of white and timber, some bush as well as an open vista and many animals.

One can dream right?

  1. It’s important to have goals and dreams. I cant leave the Yarra Valley I only have to be in Melbourne for a day and feel unhappy. I think an urban fringe home is ideal 🙂
