I'm getting so fed up with the bad reps that seem to be flying around the insta-world at the moment! I just wanna get summat off me chest... I'm not great with words, but hopefully you'll hear me out anyway...
The words "sisterhood", "solidarity" and "girl gang" seam to be thrown about like confetti in this online world, and yet words are only words if you aren't going to practice what you preach. There is no point in saying "you CAN sit with us" if it follows with "Oh, but only if you meet certain criteria..." We are all women, mothers, humans - from all different walks of life. We may not all express the same opinions, but that does not give us the right to tear another mother down for having a different one. What a boring life that would be if we were all the same!! Claiming to be a sister of solidarity and then tearing another down for NOT being part of the "sisterhood" surely goes against the grain, ya know?! I'm guilty of this too! I can be hot headed at times, and have said things in the past I have later regretted... We are only human, it happens! But it takes a much bigger person to say "I'm sorry!"
I don't really know the point I am trying to make, it's not an attack on anyone or said in hate, just an accumulation of activities read off my little iPhone screen in the last few weeks... but in a world full of ugliness right now, surely we should all be concentrating on spreading a little more kindness and positivity. Let's not forget our minds, nor our sense of humours... Life's to short, ya know!! ✌🏼❤️
I love the fun that can be made with around the house items and some time outdoors. It is so encouraging to watch children play with ordinary items and occupy themselves. These fun bubble wands were made using a stick and a pipe cleaner. Here's to searching for summer! @tinkergarten
"Keep close to nature's heart and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean" John Muir 🏕🏕 We felt like we needed to wash our spirits clean and dust off the cobwebs of a winter that felt like it would never end. So last weekend our little family of three ventured into the wilds of BC on an overnight hike and boy did it feel good! How's the start of your summer? Have you got any plans to go camping with kids? #raisedgood
I pray with everything I've got that I'll get to see this sweet sight again in the near future-- a sweet and carefree Reese letting it all hang out on our favorite sandbar on a warm Carolina afternoon, yelling as loud as he can to hear his voice echo back to us as we sit and soak up the sunshine in our favorite spot. Please, God, please. #reesestrong#pediatriccancer#thedixiebellediaries

🍄🌿“As a child, one has that magical capacity to move among the many eras of the earth; to see the land as an animal does; to experience the sky from the perspective of a flower or a bee; to feel the earth quiver and breathe beneath us; to know a hundred different smells of mud and listen unselfconsciously to the soughing of the trees.” -Valerie Andrews, A Passion for this Earth 🌿 bird call necklace in the shop • beautiful photo captured by @twentyventi 🌿🍄
This little guy has rounded off our little break with a horrible cold, poor thing. 🤒Think it's what I've had for the past few days. So, from under a pile of tissues and medicine syringes, not a picture from our snotty day inside (don't think anyone wants to see that!) but one from last week at Center Parcs. 🌲🌿🌳We did lots of more structured activities but both boys just love exploring the forest too. Also, how cute is his shirt?! I bought it in a charity shop when I was pregnant - I knew it would fit one day! It was so hard to imagine then, having boys who would one day fit into such sizes - and yet here we are 😍
Happy Monday ! Documenting my days and my boy's adventures made me realize he might be a Toddler now !! --------------------------------------------- Louis-Victor is wearing very comfortable pants handmade and Canadian sewed In beautiful printed cotton by @wildforesthandmade .
