Since meeting Gemma back at the end of 2016 my life has been one big adventure. I’ve seen places with her I had long dreamt about others I still can’t believe are real and right on our doorstep. I’ve always been drawn to mountains and the outdoors and to be able to share that passion with someone as wonderful as Gemma has been the happiest time of my life. I adore our adventures, from messing around at the local shop to going on a multi-day hike into the remotest parts of Tasmania.
We’re about to be joined on our adventures by a new arrival and I couldn’t be more excited!! I can’t wait to meet this tiny human and bring them along on our journeys into the bush. They’ve already been to more places while in the womb than many people have been their whole lives and I’m sure they won’t be at all pleased when we tell them they were in Iceland but didn’t get to see anything!
The pregnancy has of course curtailed our more extreme adventures and made the big trip to Ireland, Iceland and Hong Kong a little different than we had planned. Poor Gemma didn’t get to get smashed at an Irish wedding for starters haha!
That doesn’t mean she’s been totally immobilised however as just a couple of weekends ago she completed her 21st Abel at 31 weeks. That was our second peak that day too! She’s an absolute trooper and is doing an amazing job and is going to be such a fantastic mum.
So freaking excited!!!!
