Over the weekend Chris took me down south to celebrate my birthday. It was the first trip we’ve taken on our own in 5 years – and it was such a wonderful weekend! My parents looked after our little ones, and did lots of fun activities – and we and spent a relaxing few days exploring the countryside, having picnics, eating too much good food and reading new books. I think this was probably the best gift ever.
On one of our outings we decided to drive along the bottom half of the Darling Ranges – the range of hills that stretch from north of Perth all the way down past Bunbury. We drove through the forests to the plains – and over the other side into the wheat belt – and i was once again reminded of why those hills inspire me so much.
I feel like every time i head out into places like this I come back feeling excited, inspired and bursting with new ideas.
There really is something special about this dusty country.
