House Hunting

My husband and I moved to Brisbane almost 12 years ago now. My how time flies! A big hook for me in deciding to make the move was the prospect of owning a Queenslander. I fell in love with this style architecture at first sight and was thrilled when we bought our first home, a little 2 bedroom Queenslander, shortly after making the move. Fast forward 11 years, one renovation, and two children with one more on the way (yes, I am pregnant) it's time bid farewell to our adorable, much-loved home and move on to bigger and better things. Maybe to something like this?.....

We looked at this beauty last week. And I have to say, I've been drooling over it ever since....I love the wrap around verandahs and the beautiful French doors and white plantation shutters. The inside is every bit as perfect as the outside and the pool is magnificent too!

One of the not so great things about living in Queensland is the wild weather we have to endure from time to time. The January floods were the most surreal thing I've ever witnessed. Fortunately we managed to come through them relatively unscathed with just some damage to my hubby's office building in the CBD. A minor inconvenience compared with what so many have been through and are still going through.

Here's hoping the rest of 2011 will be less, that is.
