HAMILTON AND CAROLINE here, simpler lifers at heart but currently stuck in Melbourne suburbia.
We have four great kids, backyard chooks (chickens), a free-range guinea pig and some other pets too! We love red wine, homegrown food and the simple life (And gettin' caught in the rain of course).

ITS TIME TO START LIVING AND EMBRACE A LIFE WE LOVE!
