I’m Laura and I live in the most beautiful country in the world, New Zealand!
Even better, I live in the country which is the best part of NZ. I use weird words like jandals, togs, choice, squizz, mate, stubbies & wops (don’t worry, I’ll educate you!) and contrary to popular beliefs we are not all sheep wrangling hobbits. We do refer to ourselves as “kiwis” though, hence the name, kiwi country girl. It’s who I am.
I grew up on a farm and even though I moved into town to go to university I always knew I would end up back in the country. After all, you can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl!
This is Josh.
He is my favourite person in the whole world and in less than 1 year I get to marry him! We met when we were both living in the city, travelled overseas together and lived in London for a year before coming home and settling in a small farming community where Josh’s family lives. And it is GREAT! I work in town during the week so get my city fix but get to come home to pigs, chickens and a super-sized vege garden. Oh and my handsome farmer!
This blog is a place for me to keep people up to date with what’s happening in our little slice of paradise and also a place for me to share a few of the million random thoughts that are happening in my head at any given time and some of the recipes I find along the way. You might even learn a little bit about NZ. Enjoy!
