My beautiful friend and midwifery mentor @sueleening asked me for some words about Lucas (the whippet). He's a mover so early on in the trip we bought him a bike. He rides it whenever we stop in a place that allows it. He's the only one who "needs" the bike, all their needs differ. He's also not a hugger so when he leans in I'm taking it. Odd, because with a heart so big you'd expect him to be affectionate, aren't we all contradictions though? He seems to lean in more and more as the trip goes on. He's teaching me too...when this love is on offer, I'm recognising it, choosing it. He's still in his jammies at 7pm and I haven't washed my hair in days (since the cut in San Seb) but C'est la vie baby, life's so much more than worrying about that...even in France.
This boy likes to win, and tries to make sneaky moves on his mama 🙈 we are still in our PJs playing cards, enjoying each other's company and laughing way to much. Life can be crazy full, and it is easy to let moments like this pass by, and I can be so guilty of not stopping to enjoy them. I never feel like I have enough time to do all the things I want to do... but I know this is not how we were designed to live. .
I firmly believe that if we are faithful with the little things, God will give us bigger things. He will multiply our time if we are faithful with the time we already have. Establishing our priorities, and being disciplined with not letting them get out of line, will always come back to bless us 10 fold. So if you are struggling and feeling at all overwhelmed take a step back establish your priorities, map out your time, and lets be crazy disciplined and intentional about it together ❤️ .
H E R B S • because I miss the zahav bowl @sweetgreen so so much, I decided to make my own version with things I had on hand in my fridge + pantry...
▪️kale massaged in @chosenfoods avocado oil
▪️ @traderjoes tri-colored organic quinoa
▪️turmeric roasted cauliflower
▪️my homemade crispy curry roasted chickpeas [see a few posts back]
▪️tons of fresh mint + fill 🌿 [if you aren't putting fresh herbs in your salads, you are missing out!]
▪️a drizzle of @fixhotsauce new lemongrass sriracha 🔥
It's not the exact salad but it certainly fills the craving! Hope everyone's having a great day! ✨ #eatbreathegetfit
