We met in at a dodgy Brisbane club called Rosie's by complete chance and fell head over heels at the tender ages of 18 and 23.
We hung in Brisbane for a few years doing the young couple thing, working our assess off and having far too much fun on the weekends until it all got old.
We left Brisbane in search of a slower pace on the Sunshine Coast where Chris grew up.
We struggled with unemployment, settling in and making new friends but it was the BEST decision we ever made and paved the way for our future.
We built a website, launched an online store called Undead Threads and jumped head first into running a business in between working full time jobs.
We poured everything we had financially, emotionally and mentally into this business of ours and loved every aspect of it.
Chris proposed, I said yes, we had a killer engagement party.
We bought our first home together - a small cottage on a large suburban block that needed some love. It was a shit hole.
Our Dad's asked if we couldn't afford anything else and the truth was we couldn't. We had holes in the floors, mice in the roof and wonky walls but it was ours and we loved it.
We launched head first into renovating our little shit hole, spending every spare second and cent working towards turning into a beautiful home.
In between renovating the house, working fulltime & running Undead Threads, we managed to put together our dream wedding surrounded by all the people we loved most.
This was our biggest year by far.
We decided to renovate the house, sell it, and buy land by the end of the year.
Chris completed his Permaculture Design Certificate while I planned the renovations and once the project was finished, the house sold within a week.
Three weeks later, we found out we were expecting our first child in early 2017 and realised we hadn't found our dream property yet.
Marked the arrival of our son, Cypress who joined our tribe on January 31st,
during the most extreme heat wave in recent times.
The start of the year has been a little rocky as we adapt to life as new parents, but we think we've now got the hang of it.
Our lush farm turned into a burnt, brown paddock with struggling fruit trees everywhere you looked over summer.
We've done a lot more work on the shed to make it as comfortable as possible and have started to shift our focus towards building the house.
