Life is a beach and we are moving there

You know when you dream to move to a place you have always wanted to live and it comes true? Well this is what's just happened to our family. As my ABOUT ME page reads; "My dream is to move up to Byron Bay NSW where I know my soul and body rejuvenate every time we visit there, but my husband says we need to wait for the kids to finish school"

We won't be in actual Byron Bay but we will be going very close! Where the sun shines and the kids can surf in their backyard. There's just something ethereal and majestic the ocean is, so calming and I want to be beside ALL THE TIME. You know how much of a quote sucker I am, here are some my favourite ocean ones;

"We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came…” – John F. Kennedy

“To me the sea is a continual miracle; The fishes that swim–the rocks–the motion of the waves–the ships, with men in them, What stranger miracles are there?” – Walt Whitman

“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.” – Mother Teresa

“In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans.” – Kahlil Gibran

Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean - Ryunosuke Satoro

"You and I are all as much continuous with the physical universe as a wave is continuous with the ocean." - Alan Watts

We are so excited, kids are ecstatic and so nervous at the same time. We don't know anyone up there, we don't know where we are going to live, what school the kids are going to but you know what? This is what life is all about. I love it! Someone once told me life wasn't meant to be lived in one place and I am such a gypsy! I would travel the world everyday if I could. However being real and grounded I know I can just call them holidays.

As we frantically renovate our place to put it on the market these next few weeks, I would love your help. Please leave me some moving and packing tips, Adrian starts his new job in 6 weeks. I am going to need as much of your support, ideas and advice as I can! One thing that won't change and that is YOU, you will always be here with me and that's the most coolest thing about this whole journey so from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU. You will be with me every step of the way and that just makes me smile.
Have you ever made a big move in your life?
