More pieces of my heart. Perks of a market day at the coast 💙 When I am here, I never want to go home. The ocean is my teacher. I want to grow up to be this way. #loveaswildastheocean #growingwilder
Finally, there is moving water here. And my heart, unhinging. From winter. This winter, I would say, but aren't they all long? We are mammals, after all. This time of year is full of craving. I feel especially animal, as we together, on this farm, in this landscape, wait. For fresh growth. Walking up to the field, scavenging, I bring back so many Queen Anne's Lace burrs full. of. seed. on my clothes, my fur. This hunger is holy is the body, but we aren't designed for any kind of cold. My heart, flowing, feels natural, too. It moves with the water, again and for always. #growingwilder #aroundthewheel #animalofearth #hungry #hearful #almostspring
🌱 Wilder // Wild man // Chunkster // Dumpling • T W O MONTHS • It seems crazy that he’s been here this long and yet, I can’t imagine life without him. Happiest in the morning, he loves bouncing and being next to mama. Can’t stand the car seat or falling asleep. Still all about the milkies, his big sister, and taking baths with dad. Can’t believe there’s only one month left in my little hunk’s fourth trimester. I look at him learning to smile and coo and figure himself out and then I see Grace rocking fourth grade and making friends and becoming such a strong young lady and I can’t help but get all up in my feelings. Not only that, but I have a husband who loves me and takes such good care of all of us. I just pinch myself and keep repeating- This is it. This is life and love and happiness. Soak. It. Up. 🖤 #fourthtrimester #oxytocinvibes #happybaby #growingwilder
Some of my favorite trees, plants, I find in the most unsuspecting places. Amongst concrete, buildings, alone, in inhospitable conditions. They say hello. They have a presence you might only think would happen in forests, lush landscapes. It's often stronger and louder and more powerful than most. Outside the bar. Open mic sounds making their way past the walls. Sometimes, hearts are on display without anyone saying so. Subtly not letting ourselves be afraid, but still, under cover. This Holly. A Sacred, Holy, mostly untouchable tree. Speaking volumes. Holding space. Alive. I've felt this way most of my life. I think that must be what most everyone is doing. #daughterofgaia #growingwilder #plantmedicine
New moon. Imbolc. Lunar new year. This morning. It's all kinds of feeling like wrapping up and starting a fresh. Roads full insight and growth, hard, fun, and everything in between. Gratitude as big as the sky. #uponthisearth #undertheseskies #newmooninaquarius #growingwilder
Holding on, tenderly, to the perfect quiet of a winter morning like I know the ground underneath is already stirring. Stillness is a gift not to be forsaken, forgotten, like so many things the earth has to offer, so often overridden by the most basic confusion:: that we are at all separate or alone. #wintermedicine #weareallinthistogether #daughterofgaia #aroundthewheel #growingwilder
A whole month?! Celebrating by not putting Wilder down while he sleeps because I hear that babies don’t keep. 10lbs 15oz // 22in // first smiles, milky coos + grunts that call me to him. He loves his sister’s voice, getting kissed by daddy’s scruffy face, staring at light fixtures, and growling while drinking mama’s milk. He hates changing clothes, gas pains, and baths without his mom or dad. I love babies I love this baby & my other baby & I want more babies. Wilder you rockkkk. This month has been pure bliss. Pure milky, sleepless bliss. 💙 #wildergreythurston #growingwilder

I adopted Willy in January 2013. The moment I saw this picture, I knew he was mine.

Couldn't stop crying today. I can't believe I have never smelt a sunflower before???That scent. To my knees. And it rained earlier. And finally, like a sharp intake, the guttural reality of Lammas finally arrived. Because it comes with an ache, that hit to the heart, the Leo heart--things are going to die. It felt right to wash away the eclipses with water, tears and rain. It's the epitome of beautiful pain, this knowing that it's all going to keep going on. The truth of existence. How could we only just now realize we aren't the center of this earth? That the grief wells up from Gaia herself? That all things do? Moving forward, though it's the only right way to go, hurts if you are here and in love with it all. It's not easy to close doors, open them, all the no's and yes's, necessary to grow with Her. #growingwilder #liketheearth #andhercreatures
This morning, mallow, me. (Because this common mallow root was the best and prettiest, yes?!) Just a weed, generally, though I'm fond of most. Perhaps you don't even know what it is--it's called Malva neglecta after all--but dang if I don't feel all the feels, with any and all weedy roots. The potency, the witchiness. This was in with the carrots, so it was a bonus suprise, but as we move along in the calender-wheel, towards the glorious fall, when succumbing is the prayer; as we move towards root season, know that the scent of earth is the only perfume I'll wear. #growingwilder #theearthisallwetrulyhave #daughterofgaia #medicineplants #allaround

A moving picture of my pregnancy. While I was pregnant with Wilder, Jerry and I would spend about 30 minutes each week taking photos of my growing belly.  Some days it was fun, some days it was the last thing I wanted to do (especially if it meant I had to 1.) smile or 2.) try to look even remotely presentable). Accolades to Jerry, he knew this was an important project to me and took some serious eye rolls and abuse in helping me get it done.  While I had a loose idea in my head of what I wanted it to be, I more just had a desire to document my changing body.  Pregnancy for me was a beautiful mess.  The hormones.  The discomfort.  But also the kicking feet.  The growing life.  It’s a full on transformation that is at once the coolest and hardest thing I’ve ever experienced.  During this time Jerry was also keeping journals where he would record some of what our days and weeks looked like, as a sort of time capsule for our son.  With those words and the photos we made, we put together a story.  I didn’t edit the photos – some days were laughter, some were tears.  And that is just part of the story. #maternity #pregnancy #growingwilder #stylishbump #maternitystyle
::Firsts:: Because Solstice is just around the corner And summer has glided in on wind swirled evening oaks, landing so sweetly, so softly, this year. A gift for my body, my heart, easing into the work. And the first of our oh so many to come, late afternoon hop on down to the river cool downs. While the kids splashed, looking up at the cottonwood leaves dancing, I thought I spied up on a cliff some nettle, and wanted to go see about nibbling some of the seed if so. What I thought I saw was a different plant, unknown. Who I found had called me up there instead, Hypericum. A lovely little patch 💛 Denizen of solstice, friend of my soul. #livingunderthissky #earthschool #mayweallseewearethisheld #growingwilder

From the time I left the UK and my legal career behind, I have become a Wanderess. I have travelled far and wide and lived in many places in Andalucia, Spain, turning my wanderings into a way of living. I love to wander, to roam at will. The open road is mine, my friends. To wander is to adventure yet wandering has become an accelerated form of personal growth because I meet myself a thousand times on the road. One of the reasons I love to travel is the number of people that I meet along the way. From the young backpacker taking their first steps into the world or the new age family trying to live a different life, to the ageing hippy who has seen it all yet continues on, the sheer variety of people I meet from different cultures and cities, different ages and background is mind-boggling. And in each one, I see myself. I see myself mirrored in the people I meet where I have an instant connection. The ones where my soul says, “aah, old friend, I know you” and here is one of them.... With my beautiful friend, Nina, who I met on the road. We've had a fantastic catch up in Malaga :) Follow my adventures at @theadventuresofawildwoman #growingwilder #freeyourwild #adventuresofawildwoman #adventure #malaga #malagacentro #andalucia #spain #travelspain #explorespain #discoverspain #travelphotos #keepitwild #thegreatadventure #theadventuresofawildwoman #dinner #lunch #tapas #vino #tintodeverano
