Hi, my name is Christy. Welcome to A Cajun Down Under.
I’m a Louisiana native, born and raised in Baton Rouge. After graduating from LSU, I decided to explore the world beyond the Texas border. I landed a great job traveling the world performing software upgrades. This basically meant that I got to spend my time in enjoying room service in 5 star hotels while on an expense account and enjoying being a tourist in my off hours.
It was on a business trip to Sydney during the 2000 Olympics that I met The Aussie. A mere 10 months later we were married, and I traded in room service for house in the Sydney suburbs. That was 10 years ago now.
These days I’m a stay at home mom to my darling girls, 4 year old Lizzie and 3 year old Grace. I love my life in Australia, but I still get homesick for my family, friends, and some good Cajun food.
