Hi I am Nell, welcome to my world.
Nella Inspired is a blog about exactly that, my life and the inspiration I find along the way. My gorgeous family lives in South East Queensland, in a place that has amazing beaches and extensive breathtaking hinterland. If you ask me what I “do“…well I am a Jack (or Jill I should say) of many trades, currently a full time mum and part time writer. I write because it brings me peace and I write about everything; love, birth, kids, learning, medical journeys, travel, emotions, the highs and the lows.
I am wife of my very first love who stole my heart and gave it one hell of a wicked work out before saying “I do“, and mother to one beautiful baby girl named Ruby Jean, and one three year old little man. Our gorgeous adorable busy as a bee cute as a button son was born with a rare genetic syndrome called Saethre-Chotzen. Part of this blog is dedicated to the journey we’ve taken with him and hopefully can help other parents out who are travelling similar paths.
I hope that this blog will be forever evolving just as I hope I will be. I know that life smacks us in the face at times, I am not going to lie…I have tantrums, so I want this to be a place that tells the truth but embraces the silver lining.
Please join our little community and bring some of your own positive ammo to cast around.
p.s A call out I really must make. All the wedding photo’s on the blog were taken by the infinitely talented and ever so charming Todd and Alyda from Todd Hunter McGaw Photography.

Just wanted to say thank you for being such an inspiration. I have enjoyed reading your blog and all the positive energy that comes with it! Your little boy Boston is absolutely beautiful and seems very happy. This is what is important in life. I have three children of my own and can relate to all the joy (and sometimes anxiety) that comes with being a mother. Just hang in there when riding through a rough wave. You are not alone. Keep on writing, you never know how it can help, reach, or make another person smile somewhere else in the world.
Wow what a beautiful message for me to receive 🙂 you have seriously made my day! I write this blog because I love to write and I do find it therapeutic. I hope that each post that goes up will strike a chord with readers, but honestly its difficult to comprehend that my inspirations are inspiring others. So to receive the proof in writing is…well…inspiring!
Thank you for sharing your positivity, its beautiful.
I’m barbara,I’m French ( so sorry for my English) my little boy has also the same syndrom , he is 4 years now and he is well and healthy
,I found some similarities with your child
I admire your bravery, I wish a lot of happiness for all your family
I assure you my French is worse then your english. I still do not know a lot about Saethre-Chotzen. Even our specialist team can not be exact with how it will affect our son. I wish your family lots of happiness and good health as well. It is very nice to hear from other parents on this journey.
I just arrived here via your article that got posted on Yahoo, “When People Ask ‘Why Does His Face Look Weird’.” Your little man is different, and I for one think that is an awesome step ahead of the rest of the world. Not one thing worthy on this planet, present or past, has been accomplished by “normal” people. It’s always someone who is “different” in some fashion that has made discoveries, rallied the “normals” into action, encouraged change, etc… I know it will not be a fantasy fairy tale as he grows up but keep in mind the power of being different. Teach him to embrace it. Look forward to that moment in his life when his difference will burst through this mundane world and do something very, very worthy. His difference has already made you and your husband more of who you are, and shown you who you will be. Bless you all.
Hi Jim and welcome to our story. What a wonderful perspective you have shared, those who are different change the world! and you are completely right. Being different gives us the power to live outside the box. You are also right about Boston changing his dad and I, he has certainly shifted my perspective on the world and encouraged me to live more of my own truth instead of following the crowd (pretty amazing for a three year old).
Thank you for your kind words 🙂
