I consider myself a very privileged woman to be included in such important life events.
So how did I get to this incredible point in my life? It’s been far from boring – that’s for sure!!
My teenage years were spent here on the Sunshine Coast, after growing up in Brisbane and coming up on the weekends. This was in the 1970’s in a very laid-back Mooloolaba. There’s been a lot of changes since then, but all the natural beauty of this area; the ocean, the rivers and mountains are all still here to enjoy – plus a lot better shopping!
The travel bug hit hard in the 1980’s and 90’s, with many a fantastic adventure – enough to fill a lifetime of memories and saw a lot of this amazing world. Even then, I was always captivated by the many fascinating rituals associated with weddings, funerals and life’s milestones in other cultures.
I didn’t realise my future husband was just over at the next beach in Maroochydore. He was born on the Sunshine Coast, and has lots of great stories about growing up here. We married in 1995, and our daughter recently moved to Brisbane, pursuing her music career. So being empty nesters, we have more time for beach camping and fishing.
