In a Nutshell

Living on the Prairie. Dog lover. Food lover. Traveler. And I make stuff.


I’m an Aussie expat from Brisbane who has lived in Grand Forks, North Dakota since 2004. Living on the Northern Great Plains is a world away from the subtropic bayside city where I grew up. I have also traveled fairly extensively, but I still have a long list of places I’d like to go. This blog will look at some of those places that I have been lucky enough to visit.

My husband and I have two rescue dogs that keep us on our toes. And I have a workshop in the basement where I go to use loud power tools and hammer stuff.
