I've got reviews + giveaways for Australian hemp seeds and a gluten-free baking book coming up in the next few posts. But first, a few photos I've snapped since the 2nd baby + moving to "The Outback." :)


Prettier photos to come...
Free advice: don't take the gravel road to Darwin in the wet season. It's a river.
