Lives in Brisbane, Australia
Kelly loves life at both ends of the spectrum: wearing high heel shoes one day and hiking boots the next, sipping tea out of a pretty cup and slurping hot coffee from a camping mug. She also loves stopping for quiet moments to feel the wind on her face and adventuring with her husband and four children.
Kelly stared her blog, Be A Fun Mum, out of the desire to create, connect and share with other parents around Australia, and the world.
