Meet Christina

us-2

Hello! I’m Christina Prochazka (pronounced Pro-chaz-ka). I’m Aussie born, but my parents are Czech. I’ve been to the Czech Republic once & I plan on going back. I want to eat a never-ending poppyseed cake & visit my family all over again.

I love traveling, exploring & finding hidden treasures. But, I have to admit – there’s no place like home.

Home for me is a weatherboard cottage set amongst the rolling hills of Mirboo North, Victoria. I have a German Shepherd, called Ned, a lemon tree that grows oranges, a mulberry bush & a bright yellow chair on my front verandah. I love summer, then autumn, spring and my least favourite season is winter. I’m not a fan of the cold. I’m like a lizard, I like to bathe in the sun.

Some quick dot points:

*I really love food and coffee. *I love walking, running, netball & yoga. *I’m an op-shopaholic. *I steal sips of beer from my husband. *I have this obsession with vintage furnishings. *I really like the colours mustard + salmon + olive. *I love fishing and eating them. *I grew up with a sister who is 9 years older than me so I have this love for Salt N Pepa. *I don’t like people who whinge and don’t do a thing about it! *I have a plant obsession and it’s only in the last couple of years I’ve learnt how to look after them! *Can’t say no to a chocolate mud cake or lemon cheesecake. *My favourite place on earth is the beach. *I love singing and always dreamt I’d become a rockstar. *I really like cooking and having dinner parties. *I feel so lucky to live where I live. *And if I could live in a treehouse, I would

I have two darlings – Maeve + Clementine. From the very first moment each of them entered my life they lit up a part of my heart I didn’t even know existed. Being a parent + running my own business can be very, very busy at times… But, I’m thankful for how things are and I wouldn’t change a thing!

Lastly – photography. To me, photography is like breathing is to you. Without it, I wouldn’t be able to tell the stories I see or the emotions I feel. Documenting people’s lives and my own (on Instagram) brings me absolute joy.
