Over the years I've learned that I really do love city life and all its fabulous-ness. I love being able to eat at a great restaurant, catch a movie, buy a decent pair jeans, be inspired by a lovely shop or visit the art gallery. These are activities that make me feel alive and I definitely believe that I will always want/ need distractions like these. Ha, could still be wearing skinny jeans when I am 70 ;-)!
Now that I am a little older (but still VERY much a young thing ;-)) and have a family, I do find that I miss attributes about country living. Things like the fresh country air, the beautiful open spaces and the simple way of life. I do believe one of the reasons why I love all things handmade, artsy crafty and creative is because it helps me keep life simple and somewhat connected to my country roots.
So I woke on Sunday morning craving a little country air and we decide to venture on lil road trip to Boonah. The lovely Boonah is located in the heart of the Scenic Rim, South East Queensland and is about an hour's drive from Brisbane. It does sound kind of ragged but it is actually a beautiful, luscious and hilly green part of the world. One of its tourist attractions is Templin Historical Village, my boys Oliver and August loved it! They had seriously never seen so many old things before.
