I dare you to stand in front of a beautiful body of water on the most gorgeous day in the world on a beautiful beach & tell me that all isn’t right in the world at this very moment in time.🌊☀️🐠🦀We tend to allow external forces of negativity to consume us, but each and every one of us deserves to feel pure bliss. Give yourself that luxury. This is your daily reminder that self love is not selfish.♥️

Today is "Evaluate Your Life Day". When was the last time you sat quietly and had an honest chat with yourself? 
I don't know about you but in previous jobs, we had quarterly evaluations, and I don't think they should stop at the doors of your workplace. Go for a stroll somewhere quite, and have a nice chat with yourself. See what you have done well, and what you need to work on. 
Will you schedule that meeting with yourself?

"Me and my friend made up a new game today in school.. it's kinda like Rock Paper Scissors, only it's called poop, wee and farts" 🙄 Pretty much summing up what mothering a 5 year old is like!! 😆❤️ I think I might actually miss these days when he gets himself into fits of giggles talking about poo... ok maybe I won't! 😄Throwback to the weekend when I think we may have found the worlds largest leaf! 🍂🍂🍂

it amazes me how certain art can transform the way you think of yourself or even the world. the @icaboston's mark dion exhibit does just that - taking you through the eyes of a "naturalist" to explore what nature really means in the 21st century. dion does this with a sarcastic, humorous, and ironic twist. even making you step inside a huge bird cage to prove his point. if there's a reason to visit the museum between now and the end of the year, it's this! 🌿on other completely different news, i'm off to utah for the weekend! see ya later, boston.

On those days where I wake up and feel like sh*t I'm grateful to be in a position to work from home in my pjs and fluffy socks with a cup of tea. Be able to stop and take breaks and read books upside down and distract myself from the grey and wanting to crawl back into bed. These are my simple pleasures. Day 4 #freeupmyinsta prompt.

This little one was constant motion from the day I first felt her inside of me, and she hasn’t stopped since! She’s been asking to be in ballet since she was 2, and I’m thinking we are really needing one soon here-although Im pretty sure the teacher will have their work cut out for them with this free spirit that likes to take many “interpretive liberties” for pretty much all she does😂 @tessdh , we need you for this girl!!!

She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and your best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion. Someone who knows you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defence attorney, your best friend. ...She is your Sister. ❤️

Trust #2
' I wanna lean back and close my eyes. I wanna lay down all my arms. I wanna lay down my thoughts, my bitterness, my want to have it all now.
And I want to uncage my heart, I want to release the reins, I want to pass the edge and forget about my recurring doubts...
I'm gonna say that's not enough. I'm gonna stand back and change tack. I'm gonna take a running start.
I'm just gonna try to trust.

Trust #1
Silence. Everything calmes down. Everything stands still. Just you and your pulsing heart. Sometimes there are hard times to go through. And it's all about to dump down and to let go. 
Take your time. Rest. It's okay. Trust to find your path whether you could see it always clear anyway. It's okay. ❤️

A former coworker asked me to paint a caricature of her sweet kids in the same style you'd find at an amusement park.  This was definitely a first!  Loved doing this for her, but don't think I'll be adding these to the shop anytime soon 😀

To some, just toilet paper binoculars. To her? Her own world. She was an explorer finding unique animals in far away lands. .

Good morning!⠀⠀
⠀⠀
I am ready to dive into a SOAP for you guys.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
For those who don't know, SOAP stands for:⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Scripture⠀⠀
Observation⠀⠀
Application⠀⠀
Prayer⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Scripture: Hosea 2⠀
⠀
14 “Therefore I am now going to allure her;⠀ I will lead her into the wilderness⠀  and speak tenderly to her.⠀
15 There I will give her back her vineyards,⠀ and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.⠀
There she will respond as in the days of her youth,⠀ as in the day she came up out of Egypt.⠀
16 “In that day,” declares the Lord,⠀ “you will call me ‘my husband’;⠀ you will no longer call me ‘my master.[d]’⠀
17 I will remove the names of the Baals from her lips;⠀ no longer will their names be invoked.⠀
18 In that day I will make a covenant for them⠀  with the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky⠀  and the creatures that move along the ground.⠀
Bow and sword and battle⠀  I will abolish from the land,⠀ so that all may lie down in safety.⠀
19 I will betroth you to me forever;⠀ I will betroth you in[e] righteousness and justice,⠀ in[f] love and compassion.⠀
20 I will betroth you in[g] faithfulness,⠀ and you will acknowledge the Lord.⠀
21 “In that day I will respond,”⠀ declares the Lord—⠀
“I will respond to the skies,⠀ and they will respond to the earth;⠀
22 and the earth will respond to the grain,⠀ the new wine and the olive oil,⠀ and they will respond to Jezreel.[h]⠀
23 I will plant her for myself in the land;⠀ I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one.'⠀
I will say to those called ‘Not my people,’ ‘You are my people’;⠀ and they will say, ‘You are my God.’”⠀
⠀⠀
Observation: No matter how far we go, God leads up back to him. I love the soothing language in this verse. He speaks "tenderly" to us, we will call Him "husband" not master. We can "lie down in safety", we will be be "planted" by God.⠀
⠀⠀
Application: Achor means Trouble in Hebrew. I love the idea that no matter what trouble is in the valley, there is a door of hope we can walk through.⠀
⠀⠀
Prayer: God no matter what help us to remember your love.⠀
⠀⠀

Sometimes we can be guilty of thinking people who do what we want to do are out of our league.⠀
⠀
You want to start a business⠀
⠀
You want to write a book⠀
⠀
You want to record a song⠀
⠀
But THAT person does it already.⠀
⠀
There's room for everyone. ⠀
⠀
When we realize we all have something to bring to the table I think the fear to compare goes away.⠀

What do you think? Comment below⠀

Despite careful planning as endless list-compiling, our Cuba holiday is far approaching and I feel like there's still so much to do before then! Thankfully, we now both have visas and insurance. When it comes to packing, it's an entirely different story though... any tips on where to find summer clothes in the middle of October?!

Muddy boots may not be very "instagram", but they tell a far more colourful story 🍁🌳 If my furry companion wants to frolic through the woods like Noel and Sandi, who am I to refuse her!? 🐶
Sometimes I wonder if people actually carry the wellies to that perfect "leafy spot"  and change into them for the photo - or settle for cold coffee in the name of that perfect flatlay 😂🍁🤔 I can joke about it now, but I'd be lying if I said I'm not vulnerable to the comparison trap. What's more, I've noticed a growing number of references to it on here/ twitter/blogs/magazines/coffee shops... and bus stops, as of this morning! 
In the past month, I've tried to challenge my own anxieties and #freeupmyinsta. I've posted more and used my captions as a "micro-blog"; a place to open up and be less afraid of... being. Just being me. 
Sometimes I've worried about over-sharing my thoughts, or over-promoting my etsy. I still worry that people will think my crochet/prints are rubbish and I am still vulnerable to the comparison trap. I'd certainly like to kick a pile of leaves over the IG algorithm! 
Nevertheless, overall I do think my anxiety has DECREASED. I  have less space to fixate on tiny details; details that, in reality, NO ONE ELSE will care about. I'm spending less time editing and googling punspiration (for example, that one was all me 🙈) Less time doing/chasing perfection and more time being. Just being.
So note to self: Muddy boots are more colourful than the shiniest of hunter wellies. Free Elves make for #happyselves and thats OK! I can dislike pumpkin spiced lattes and still be a socially-acceptable human. The best books have worn pages and the best stories lie beyond the cover.

Tomorrow we say I do. But its only a formality. The day we became a "thing", the day I said yes, every time we kissed after a fight, fought after a kiss. Every time you cared for me when I was sick, every time you danced with me for no reason. The spontaneous road trips, the rainy days watching movies, the laughter. I said I Do in so many moments of our lives together...and I always will.

'Beautiful things are prepared with love. The act of creating something of beauty is a way of bringing good into the world. Infused with optimism, it says simply: life is worthwhile' -Alan Moore⠀
⠀
Thank you Alan! This is something I feel about photographing the simple, authentic moments of life and giving those beautiful images to families. ⠀

The ever-evolving gallery wall. One day I hope to have this space filled top to bottom with new and old memories. 
Also I hate that air vent, and wish I could find a better way to hide it. 😒

It's been too long since I've seen him, but luckily, Nana is doing a great job of sending photos my way so I get all the cuteness overload updates each day. #meltmyheart #auntlife

I miss Greece so much! 🌊💙 I’m #summer2018ready
• Giorni di •

Tenerezza, di "Ti voglio bene" detti sottovoce e per la prima volta, di pianti e di "Mamma non andare". Giorni di problemi da affrontare, che quelli non mancano mai. È il gioco della vita che si diverte a tenerci sulle spine, che ci misura, che ci chiama a reagire. È il gioco della pace, che te la devi un po' meritare.

È il gioco dell'essere grandi, che ha delle regole molto severe e che forse, dico sempre, è meglio imparare da piccoli che quando si cresce è sempre più difficile.

Giorni di primi freddi, di coperte, di tisane, di primi grigi nel cielo e nei visi che la mattina, anche se la giornata è sempre più corta, hanno tanto da affrontare.

Giorni di compleanni da organizzare che tre anni sono passati. E mi manca tanto dei primi mesi.

Giorni lenti, trascorsi a raccogliere le prime foglie rosse, autunnali, gialle, stanche, marroni, secche, cadute.

E di quel gatto, al sole, che, indisturbato, di quei giorni lì ne vive a volontà. 
E giorni di noi, che stiamo cambiando rapidamente e di me che provo a prenderti. 
E giorni di te che stai imparando a correre. Sempre più velocemente.

Have you ever noticed a woman who has aged more beautiful as she has gotten older? It wasn’t about the superficial things added but instead her soul is what is radiating so loud that it just beautifully dominates her being. I remember one time I was at a conference and there were these women on stage who were just absolutely beautiful. It was like you couldn’t take your eyes off of them. They were so beautiful that even the top supermodel could walk in but you wouldn’t take your eyes off the women on stage. These women on stage couldn’t care less about the external beauty but instead they focused on their inward. They are more focused on their relationship with Jesus and worshipping Him than anything else. You could tell because the anointing that God has on their life is so powerful and strong it is unbelievable. It’s one thing for a person to admire external beauty but it’s a whole other level to admire someone’s inward beauty that trickles over to her outward beauty. Audrey Hepburn has such a lovely perspective on beauty for us women: “The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years." - Audrey Hepburn

This is motherhood, postpartum.

This is those first few hours with a fresh new baby; both of you learning one another, figuring out, fumbling like every woman and every baby has before you. 
All the hands, helping. 
All the assistance and advice and suggestions and you - willing your body to do what it needs to do, wondering in spite of your exhausted optimism if it's meant to come easier. 
Welcome to The Motherhood, mamma.

You're surrounded by so many, a legacy of love. 
You need never be alone. Just reach out - we are here. x

Всё отчётливее осознаю, что людей люблю больше, чем путешествия. Мне очень важно с кем находиться рядом, не так важно где, то есть я готова ночевать в палатке в болотистых лесах, на неровной земле, со сложенным свитером под головой вместо подушки, если компания подобралась хорошая, и совершенно не готова жить в пятизвездочном отеле в центре Милана одна или с людьми, с которыми не могу расслабиться.

Отдельный скил - это как раз путешествия в одиночку. Тут не просто нужна смелость, её бы я немного насобирала, а скорее самодостаточность, самостоятельность в высшей мере и абсолютная уверенность в собственных силах. И это круто! Невероятно круто! Но я такими качествами обладаю в недостаточной степени, значит совершенно недоступно..) Но есть один вопрос, на который я ответ ещё не нашла - смогу ли я жить на одном месте всю жизнь, никуда не выезжая, особенно зная, что возможности поехать куда-то нет?

Casually surveying my kingdom.... 👸🏼🕌

Already planning to go back to @trenthamgardens and explore all the parts I missed. The idea of how beautiful it must be in spring and summer actually blows my little mind 🌱🌷
