I feel so proud to live in a town like Daylesford.
A town that is country one minute and the next minute is playing host to Australia's second largest gay and lesbian festival, Chillout.
As I stood in the main street of our town this morning watching the parade go by I felt overwhelmed with emotion and I cried.
Whilst doing everything I could to stop my girls running on to the road to be part of the parade, I felt so happy with our decision to move here nine years ago. I feel that a town that has a festival every year to celebrate people that are given a hard time in other towns, is the place for us.
I love a celebration and a parade and this one had it all with its crazy characters, drag queens and kings, motor bikes, bands, parents, kids, cloggers and fire engines.
So Happy Chillout to you all!!
But the thing I love most about where I live is that a four minutes drive from town takes us home and from here we could be in the middle of nowhere.
I hope you are having a wonderful, colourful weekend too. XX
