I was born in beautiful Brisbane, in the Sunshine State in the 80's. I have so much love, respect and admiration for my mum, dad and sister and the growing, extended Newington family I was so honoured to marry into. My faith in Jesus Christ is central to my life and I try to make all decisions in light of the grace of God. My husband Joshua is one of the silliest, funniest and wisest people I (and many others) know. Certainly he is my closest companion and dearest friend. I am excited about life and it's many gifts. I like flowers picked from sidewalks, falling leaves, fresh vegetables, beeswax candles, old-fashioned photographs, homemade bread, Jane Austen books, almond crossiants and dark, dark chocolate among many other delicous, extravagant and delighful things.
