This month's GPP Street Team Crusade is Where in the World? Share where you come from or where you live.

This is where I live - Esperance, Western Australia

My family and I now call Esperance home. My husband grew up here after his family emigrated to Australia from England. He left for Perth in 1980. I was born Perth and have never lived anywhere but the city. All of Ken's family still live in Esperance. We were planning on selling our house in Perth and deciding where to move to. With the house prices the way they were moving up, we were going to be moving further out to the outskirts of Perth. So we decided to move to Esperance.

It was a big decision, to sell up and move 730 kilometres, but it's the right one for us. We have a bigger house, a great yard and a wonderful lifestyle. We live a 5 minute walk from the beach.

So many people have said to us that they would love to do what we have done and move to the country, but don't think that they could do it. You have to take a chance, we are living our dream.

Merry Christmas

I meant to upload this before Christmas - I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

I found this great tutorial at Moonstitches and had to give them a go, it's been a while since I've done any sewing, but I think they turned out great.

In the picture below you can see more detail.
