  1. Sophie!
    I just wanted to pop by and tell you how much I *love* your blog. I enjoy it immensely. I came across it through Tim's facebook....he came and taught my cohort of plunge at morling college back in 2010! I pop on here every now and then and absolutely love reading your updates and reflections. You are such a wonderful writer, storyteller, photographer, baker and garden grower. It is my dream to have my own garden one day. I am so drawn to the simplicity, beauty and peacefulness of country life, I feel like I would love wagga. And good lord, are you an amazing interior designer! Come and design my home?!?!
    I feel like we share a lot of the same interests and passions - part of the reason I enjoy reading your blog so much. Thank you for your raw and honest reflections and your thoughtful and enjoyable insights. I just checked out your recipe page - and being a "flexitarian" (read: don't cook meat at home but too lazy to become a full-time vegetarian because I don't know enough about how to supplement properly/how do I deal with the awkardness of family dinners when they always cook meat and I have eaten said meat since forever) (that was long, sorry) I am absolutely going to try out a whole bunch of your recipes over the coming weeks and I'll let you know how I go with them :)
    Also love love your environmental awareness and use of cloth diapers -- will be following a lot of your advice when I have my own kids.
    Basically, I think you are great, and such an encouragement. I have been meaning to start a blog of my own for the last couple of years now and have just never got around to it - but you inspire me to make it happen! Keep up the amazing work.
    P.s. I also just started following you on instagram, hope you don't mind! :)
