Meat pies are genius! Flaky pastry with meat and gravy?! Come ooooon. That's genius. It's mostly why I moved to New Zealand. (jokes... but seriously)
The beautiful landscape:
There's nothing like it. My surroundings are so beautiful and it's winter! I can't wait for spring!

These lovely ladies have been sooo incredibly nice and welcoming to me. It can be scary sometimes leaving all your friends behind, but I am truly blessed to have gained these new friends! Friendship is a wonderful thing.
Believe it or not, the mayonnaise is different here. And it is sooooo so good. I have it on everything (just about)! I have it in place of ketchup (because actually the ketchup is different here too, and I'm really not a fan) and it's amazing! If you come to NZ give it a try. Yum.
The van der Wel family cat. He is soooo funny and the fluffiest cat you ever did see. He has fluff coming right out of his ears. He thinks he rules the roost, and I think he does too.
My Mr. van der Wel:
Whether in Canada, or Australia, New Zealand, or Texas I am so glad to be by his side. I love this man. Thanks, New Zealand. Good work.
