Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

The festive season is well and truly here. I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog as I enjoy the last minute present buying, cooking and preparations. In the last couple of days, we’ve also been very lucky to have visits from old friends, including my best friend and bridesmaid and her family, and yesterday my Mum, sister, brother-in-law and two nieces arrived for the week.

Thanks for reading the blog this year and I will be back in early 2015. I’m looking forward to some more regular writing, and am very excited about some interviews I’ll be posting with friends who have taken the leap and made interesting and exciting career changes.

All the best for a safe, happy, stress-free and joyful Christmas and New Year. See you in 2015.

I started this blog almost 3 years ago when we first arrived in the Barossa Valley. I've always wanted to write and I wanted to share my experience of my career change, our move to this beautiful wine region and discovering my next adventure. After 15 years as a public servant working in Canberra, Beijing, China and Hanoi, Vietnam, I decided it was time for a career change and more importantly, a lifestyle change. In 2014, we left Hanoi and headed to the Barossa Valley in South Australia with a dream of a more fulfilling lifestyle in one of Australia's premier food and wine regions. My husband and I both work in the wine industry - where my job could be described as anything but making the wine. In 2017, I decided to wind-up the consulting business I established in 2015 and focus on learning as much as I could about the wine industry and writing - both on this blog and a memoir of our time in Vietnam. This blog is an opportunity for me to share my writing - about everything from motherhood, to career change, fitness, travel and our vine-change/career change experience.
