About Me

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 Children

My four children have become my heroes, which took me by surprise, and I love getting to know who they are.

Miss 12:

She’s brave, quirky, kind, creative, and likes to giggle.

Miss 12

Miss 10:

She’s helpful, self-reliant, winsome, sweet and has the most adorable one-sided dimple.


Miss 7:

She’s dramatic, cheeky, expressive, funny and sings all day long.

Master 6:

He’s sensitive, logical, a doer, affectionate and is currently obsessed with dinosaurs.

My Husband


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 Family

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.
