I’m a mama who dreams of spending more time with my babies. I’m an employee who counts the minutes of the clock. I’m a friend who imagines of a day when I can pick up my family and make a spontaneous visit. •
I’m also a believer of hard work pays off. That I CAN and AM building a business on the side. That being MY best self will inspire others to be THEIR best self. •
I can hear your eye roll. How many times has someone preached about building a business from a couch or kitchen table?! Ever thought it’s because IT IS POSSIBLE? It’s not just a coincidence that all these strong women know there’s more to life than working hard to make someone else’s dream come true.
What’s beautiful about building a life by design is you don’t have to miss out on the life that’s passing you by. It’s all YOUR time. You’re the boss. •
It’s what I want to teach this little girl of mine. Don’t be ordinary. Be extraordinary!! And love the life you create!•

If you don’t do wild things when you’re young, you’ll never have anything to smile about when you’re old 🖤
Sometimes you just gotta stop and eat the snow❄️
I will never tire of watching her sleep. I remember the first time I saw her sleeping just like this. It was in an ultrasound when I was about 28 weeks pregnant. She was frank breech, arms up over her head, and feet up and crossed too. And the girl stayed that way for the whole remainder of my pregnancy. Strong willed, to say the least. #willastone
Told her she looked retro the other day. She told me off saying 'No, I am Tabitha'
Someone said she's strong. Her reply? 'No, I am Tabitha'
She's Tabitha and super proud of it!
She wanted to climb these today, kicked off when I said no 🙄 anyway.... we need a waterproof suit for next week, anyone seen any nice ones?
So warm today. I can't believe we've reached close to 70 in February. But...I guess we will take it while we can.
We really need to hire out one of these beach huts during the summer! For us the beach is all-year round; whether we're barefoot and building sandcastles or wrapped up in our coats ⛵ But you can't beat a day out at the beach in the warmer weather. I don't think we'll ever tire from living walking distance from the seafront.
Today this dear boy of mine turns 8💓
He is definitely happiest outside with something to catch, launch, or create🐟
When he does have to stay inside he can be found "fishing" off of the staircase, planning his hunting cabin with his brother, or creating some new live trap that he is sure will catch something 🐿️
He is our designated "safety inspector" (and has been since he was two) as he is the most cautious of our children and is always the one to caution his siblings if he feels they are going to do something dangerous ⚠️. This year he has shown his creativity in the kitchen and has become quite the little chef 🍲.
He loves the Bible, especially the Old Testament battle stories and is known to come and say something like "hey mom did you know that Abishai, the son of Zeruiah, the brother of Joab killed Goliath's son who had six fingers and six toes on each hand and foot?" Ummm, no, I didn't know that but thank you for sharing dear🙄😂
His life goal at this point is to live in the wild everyday of his life but to be close enough to his mommy to bring her flowers every day 💐
Needless to say, this boy definitely has his momma's heart ❤️
His Current Favourites:
Colour - Blue
Animal - King Cobra and Wolf
Bird - African Crowned Eagle
Food - Sushi
Bible Story - The life of David
School Subject - First Nations Studies

Would you guys believe me if I told you this was shot on film and not edited even one bit? Photography is my passion, capturing these moments that pass in a blink of in an eye is what it’s about for me, but film? It’s my newest love.
Sometimes I feel like Noah’s facial expressions need a pair of brass knuckles and a tear drop tattoo 😎 #meanmug #thatlooktho
My two favorite electricians! Johnny's desire to learn and "work" is out of control. A bit like his dad 😝 In other news, we had a freaking dinner party in this house last night. Everyone left covered in drywall chalk, but it was amazing. It's gonna be bananas when we have actual furniture. The house is perfect for entertaining. Now I just wish I was the hostest with the mostest, and not the hostest with the best procrastination skills 🥂

Thanks for choosing me Baby girl!
The dairy industry has everyone blinded in believeing these cows live happy lives. They have people thinking they are well taken care of, happy, and never go through any grief. The truth is, they are raped over and over again, abused and have their children taken away from them shortly after birth. Make the connection.... they feel and love just like we do. If you are against oppression PROVE IT. Don’t contribute to these industries. Everyone is against animal cruelty yet many of you still fund it. Just because you aren’t doing the killing with your own hands and you get the luxury of never seeing the process doesn’t mean you don’t pay for someone else to do it for you. You can’t be against animal cruelty and keep spending your money on animal products. Paying someone else/funding it is the same thing as saying you saying you support the horrors and suffering of these innocent beings. LOVE. COMPASSION. EMPATHY. PEACE.
I am learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from the things not meant for me.
