Proof of Life!
After having less than average wifi at our last AirBnB to having NO WIFI at our current apartment I feel like I’ve lost touch with the outside world! I’m slowly catching up on the news of everybody getting engaged, falling pregnant and having babies which makes my soul incredibly happy!
We arrived safely in Val Thorens on Friday night and are staying in a beautiful apartment, but unfortunately the wifi hasn’t been working 😩 It came on yesterday for a few hours but then stopped again which was super frustrating!
All of my work is online and I usually do it once Sienna goes to bed at night so my already HUGE to-do list is now next level out of control! With that being said, if you’re waiting for a response from me, please don’t give up hope… I promise to get back to you one day this year 😳
In the meantime we are loving being in a new place that we haven’t explored before. Staying up at 2,300m is an interesting experience. I’m slowly adjusting to the altitude and not breathing quite so heavily when I carry Sienna Bella up the stairs 😂
After a couple of quiet days, we thought we’d test out the rain cover on our @macpac
carrier for the first time yesterday which was lots of fun! I’m so pleased we had it on because the heavens opened while we were taking photos of a beautiful lake about 20 minutes from the apartment. Sienna loved being out in the rain as we sung all of the ‘rain songs’ I could think of. There are so many amazing hiking trails here which is going to keep us busy.
I’m REALLY hoping the wifi will be sorted today so that I can share everything that we’ve been up to over the past couple of days/weeks, and so that I can catch up on everything that you have all been doing as well!
I JUST SAW A SLACKLINING BARBIE!

Let the adventures begin! 🌍 At the end of this month I will be paddling from Lands End in Cornwall, out across the Celtic Sea, to the beautiful archipelago that makes up The Isles of Scilly.

We had so much fun hiking this local mountain with our amazing friends and generous host family! As we hiked, our host pointed out all the edible plants and encouraged us to breathe deep and enjoy the clean mountain air! Would you guys want this place as your backyard!? ⛰
P.S. my POV from picture 3 is in our Stories as well as moments from this hike and me attempting my 10 years of French that you would think made me fluent, but totally didn’t. #fromwhereisit

Do you ever wonder what life would be like if you did things differently? I wish I could say no, that I trust my path every second of every day but that's just not the truth.
Panic sets in when old thinking patterns drown out my intuition and my ears repress sounds from my soul, listening to anyone but myself who cares to share their opinion. But like asking a server at a restaurant what they recommend, it really becomes clear what you want once you've been steered one distinct way. The grain of truth here is this: those moments of doubt are there to inspire you to do only one thing and one thing only: CHOOSE. .
We make such a big deal out of making the right choices but they don't exist. .
When you live your life from a place of fun, joy and pleasure to simply BE your truest self - alive and true - ALL choices are an act of fun, joy and pleasure. They are all choices that align with your truth. It's only when you let go of the "how" and let your intuition guide you is when you truly become free to enjoy this beautiful opportunity called life. .
Remember to love yourself every step of the way. .
Regardless of the choices you make, love yourself from the deepest energetic space you can access because living from a place of alignment is easy. It doesn't require hard, struggle or judgement.
Auckland’s sleeping giant. I’m proud that even in this sprawling city, we still have access to the beautiful night sky. Not every city can say that. Access to offshore volcanoes, that’s just icing on the cake.

The key is to make exercise fun. Today, we rode 17.2 miles, making stops at different places in south Austin. First, we got bagels from Wholy Bagel. Then, we rode around the trail at Dick Nichols park. On the way home, we stopped by the old house (the house where we lived before kids). Yes, it was pretty hot out, but we had a fun time exploring different parts of of town. .
For me, I do best exercising outside and with people. It's hard to stay motivated alone on a treadmill, but sometimes it has to be done that way.
See if you can find ways to make exercise fun, and not seem like a chore.
Exploring the canyons of Utah! Such raw beauty!
Smokey day at the lake with my little water bug.
Funny story: Anton went to a lake bday party when he was 4 and awkwardly floated away in a life jacket. I realized we'd focused so much on skating that we forgot about swimming! lol I think he's caught up now and officially freed from the life jacket 😉
Beautiful morning at Nexxen/Newport beach, despite the smoky skies.
Love the friendship between Eleanor and Chief - that dog is worth his weight in gold 😍🐕
