Bee's BlogHi everyone, and welcome to my blog. My name is Bee and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I started this blog so that I could keep everyone up to date with what has been going on in my life lately – and boy, has it been an exciting and hectic time! I discovered around the time that I got engaged that I had quite a few family members as well as overseas friends that wanted to keep up to date with everything that has been going on with the family and I – the major moments being our wedding, our house move and our new addition to the family.

Having used Facebook for a number of years, I utilized my profile to give small updates and post photos about the things that have been happening recently – but alas, not everyone is on Facebook! Despite Facebook being used by more and more people everyday, I still know a number of people who have not signed up for it. Having a blog has allowed me to let these non-Facebook users find out all about what’s been going on in our lives.

The moment I became ‘Mrs’ Blake Fisher

A moment I will remember for the rest of my life – when I said ‘I do’ to my childhood sweetheart Blake. Having met back in the 90s at Camberwell High School, I knew fairly soon that this would be the man I spent the rest of my life with. After 8 years of dating, Blake proposed to me at Melbourne Star – and of course, I immediately said I do!

Soon, the wedding planning begun. The bridesmaid dresses were bought, the wedding venue in Melbourne was booked, the wedding cake was designed and very soon, everything began to fall into place.

Bee's BlogThe big move to our first new home

Once we were back from our honeymoon (which was in Nusa Dua in Bali – we stayed at an amazing resort called Club Med), we soon started looking for our first new home. Luckily, the wedding hadn’t gone over budget, so we still had more than a deposit for a new home. We looked all over Melbourne, and finally – through the help of the lovely team at Barry Plant Real Estate – we finally found a beautiful 3 bedroom home in Footscray.

Our new addition to the family

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes… well a house, and THEN a baby in a baby carriage! Six months after we moved into our first new home, we discovered some great news… I was pregnant! Although this wasn’t planned, it was such a great surprise for us both.

Although I had a tough pregnancy – including all those horrible pregnancy symptoms you read about online – with the help of the lovely midwives at Ten Moons, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. After many moments spent looking through baby names in books and online, we decided upon the name ‘Eva’.
