I would rather be called weird than boring.
I judge myself harshly but see the best in those around me.
I love being with people but am comfortable with my own company.
I’m never bored.
I am Kelly.
Motherhood: It’s a challenge.
But anything worth anything involves sacrifice and investment.
And in terms of worth, motherhood is gold. I believe it!
Through the challenges, there’s wonder, incredible beauty and joy.
A little about me
I love life at both ends of the spectrum: wearing high heel shoes one day and hiking boots the next; sipping tea out of a pretty cup and slurping hot coffee from a camping mug; adventuring as much as I can and staying home to read a book for hours. I’m a truth seeker with a desire to connect meaningfully with those I meet and journey with on this varied path I walk.
My four children have become my heroes, which took me by surprise, and I love getting to know who they are.
She’s brave, quirky, kind, creative, and likes to giggle.
She’s helpful, self-reliant, winsome, sweet and has the most adorable one-sided dimple.
She’s dramatic, cheeky, expressive, funny and sings all day long.
He’s sensitive, logical, a doer, affectionate and is currently obsessed with dinosaurs.
This man is my childhood sweetheart. I call him Matthew, Matty and sometimes, Blu. We are opposite in almost every way but we have found ways to work as a team — and we do it well if we let our strengths and weaknesses meet in the right places.
While he is task orientated, I’m goal orientated. I do things quickly. He does them s–l–o–w–l–y and methodically. I breathe creativity. He’s scientific and logical. He’s a nerd. I’m a dreamer. So yes: we do disagree sometimes but we laugh everyday and I still get giddy when his brown eyes sparkle into mine.
Where I live
I’ve lived in many places in Australia since I married (11 places up to date). I am currently living in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. As a family, we love exploring as much as we can.
Our mission as a family is to be amazing in the moments we have and to delight in all the wonders that are in them.
