    Hi! I’m Corel, I’m in my 30s (you do not need to know which one) and I have a husband, J and two kids: Miss 3 and Master 6. We live in sunny Newcastle, a two hour drive north of a city you might know called Sydney and love spending time baking biscuits and playing in the waves at Merewether. I work full time and am building my own business on the side, so between that and raising two energetic kids, I enjoy any downtime I can muster with bubble baths, regular date nights with J and reflecting about life on this here blog.
