Best place to sit outside with a cup of coffee in the morning.
The quilt of my dreams (handmade by my husband’s grandmother), snow on the ground (ice called for a snow day), and the burning bush leaves outside my window. I am in my happy place.

What you can’t see in this snap of almost cliche English-Literature-student-working-in-the-best-coffee-house-in-town/PhD-life, is the palpitation-inducing quantities of coffee that have fuelled today’s writing. I’ve laboured over just a handful of sentences, and realised that my work has been more inspired by panic than productivity. But it got done, so I had another coffee to celebrate | #phd #phdlife #studygram #studying #gradlife #gradstudent #notebooks #smallmomentsofcalm #slowliving #liveslow #coffee #acwri #academiclife #indiecoffee #coffeeshop #research #writing #handwriting #handwritten
Today is a snuggle down kind of day. It’s rainy, cold, and our furnace is not working😳⠀ .⠀ We do have power though! That means I think I need to cozy up under a blanket with some coffee and binge on some Fixer Upper while I fill some Etsy orders. ⠀ .⠀ What are you up to?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #thatfacethough #makesmehappy 😊 #sheepstagram #sheeplove . #homestead #homesteading #happyhomesteading #homesteaders #homesteadlife#farmstead #hobbyfarm #farmher #farmlife #farmlove #farmlifebestlife #lifeonthefarm #onthefarm #farmdreams #farmfresh #backyardfarm #liveslow #wildandfreemama #wildandfreechildren #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #boymom #momofboys #homeschooler

Tell me that I’m not the only one who can’t stop buying cutting boards. We have a beautiful end-grain butcher block that lives on our countertop, a ton in our cabinets . . . and THESE. But I use them for everything.

Parts are here, so we're in the process of reassembling the engine and putting it back in. As soon as this bus is running, we're outta here! Somehow it's already November and we haven't put this girl in storage yet so we can start diving into boat refit. Link in bio, find out if we were successful!#enginework #valveadjustment #type4

Sleet and rain and ice. I have a hard time appreciating colder weather unless it's picturesque scenery. But there is beauty in the harshness and and cold. 🌿
Is it the weekend yet?

3 LAWS OF GOOD NUTRITION by @magendavidfitness - There is TONS of conflicting and confusing nutrition information in the world today. It can be hard to know what you NEED to do. - These simple and easy to follow laws are the secret behind successful diets of all kinds. If you can learn to follow them you will be lean, healthy and full of energy in no time. - 1. Eat Slowly Until Satisfied Overeating is the root cause of excess calories and therefore excess fat. Extreme diets will make you measure your food or your calories. Then you starve yourself once your "portion" is finished. Successful diets find ways to slow you down so you can feel you body's natural cues. This can be done explicitly (telling you to slow down) or unconsciously, usually by food selection. What can you eat faster a peice of cake or a apple? - 2. Remove Nutrient Deficiencies You body needs 2 types of nutrients Macro (BIG) and Micro (small). Lacking any of them will affect how you body functions. You can turn off you metabolism (calorie burning) by not getting enough vitamins and minerals (two examples of micronutrients) Most people (even athletes) are deficient in something. Common culprits are Protien, Iron, and Vitamins A,C or D Focusing on Nutrient Dense Food, and a wide variety is the trick. Fruits, Veggies and Whole foods are all very nutrient dense. Additionally anything that you are intolerant or allergic to will affect your absorption. Make sure to stay away from these. - 3. Recovery From The Stress Of Life If you don't recover your body can't use nutrients effectively. These means Sleeping 7-9 hours a night. Not doing to much intense exercise. And coping with stress from work, family, etc. You need recovery activities to help you destress such as mediation, stretching and talking with a friend. - All successful diets, that people can stick to for the long haul, help you follow these laws in some way. If someone you know could benefit from this, then send them here. - #diet #fitness #lifestyle #liveslow #nutrition #fatloss #recovery #allergies #reasonable #fitforlife #fitnesslife
How is Thanksgiving only a week away? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I promised myself I wouldn't take on too many cooking responsibilities this year. Then, when my husband wanted to make the turkey, I can't resist helping with the stuffing and gravy. And if I make gravy, I need mashed potatoes - it's the key to a good gravy! Then of course there's the pumpkin pies, which I will gladly always make, because is it even Thanksgiving without a pumpkin pie? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your plans for this year? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #igersstpete #keepstpetelocal #liveamplified #calledtobecreative #finditliveit #feelfreefeed #nothingisordinary #livemoremagic #capturemycraft #whywelove #thatauthenticfeeling #thenativecreative #seekthesimplicity #alifeofintention #theartofslowliving #wearethemakers #craftandfolk #aquietstyle #kinfolktable #designinreallife #verilymoment #makersmovement #makersgonnamake #minimalism #thesincerestoryteller #womeninwoodworking #liveslow #hiddentampa #livefreefeed #wilderspoons

A week ago before the floods came. I’m being dramatic but the rain just doesn’t seem to want to stop. Poor chickens are wet and muddy and we’ve since tarped the coop! Hot oatmeal coming up because I like to spoil them 🐓🐓

Amble reflects mornings like this - ice-blue skies, breathless cold walks under skeletal trees, golden leaves a carpet underfoot. I spent many happy winter days rambling around the wilderness of northeastern England and my heart still yearns for those days - I’m so glad that Montreal also has such beautiful crisp winter days! . . #humbleyarn #humblemtl #indiedyer #handdyedyarn #indiedyersofinstagram #etsy #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knittingaddict #maker #igknits #knitstagram #knitclub #knittersofig #knittinginspiration #yarnporn #knitlove #tricot #beautifulknitters #weloveknitting #handmade #liveslow
The Nirvana room at MoPop took me back to high school. I will never forget the day Curt Cobain died. Nirvana was blowing up then and we could all relate to their music. It spoke to us. I spent more time in this room then I would have anticipated. His voice and his pain is unlike anything I had ever heard before and nothing like we have heard since. What is your favorite Nirvana song?

I think this product has my favourite drape around the neck. Made with 100% Geelong lambswool spun in Yorkshire. Thinking about producing this as a jumper, what do you think? #jumperlove #greyknit

Day 4 of just the 3 of us and still trying to figure out the ⚖️ Noah was so used to having us all to himself and the guilt hit me today that I wasn’t giving him enough attention. Thankful we have a park in our estate that he can get a run around until his Mama is fully healed and driving again and we can get out and about properly 🚗 #mumguilt #csectionrecovery #lostwithoutmywheels #dayatatime #honestmotherhood

Swooooonnnnnn 😊 I’m a total believer in the whole “have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful” I’m always wishing I were a minimalist (for the Cleaning) but also love my eclectic style. So I’m on board with this gorgeous display I found whilst scrolling the abyss of @pinterest . and....it might give you some inspo on how to display all the vintage Ceramics 💁🏼‍♀️ . . Total inspo 🙌🏼✨ It was put to me that Minimal eclectic should definitely be a thing 😜 so I’m rolling with that . . #pinterestinspired #musing

Yoga and meditation have become my happy place, it's like a mini vacation for the mind,body and soul. I spent the past weekend at a silent yoga retreat, it was exactly what my mind and body needed. We spent most of the weekend doing yoga and meditating, a lot of the activities allowed us to go within ourselves and reflect. This past weekend was about clearing my mind and body of toxic energy, learning how to let go and finding my center.We are often surrounded by so much external noise that we neglect our internal voice, being surrounded by nature allowed me to tune into my intuition. Love and light 🍃
Slower starts ☕ Finally getting the hang of even, straight rows, slowly but surely.
The one I’m gonna call “our Christmas” tree has already placed and it’s waiting for decorations, which have been checked yesterday, so I supposed that this week-end will be all about Xmas!!! I suppose oven will be turned on, to cheer up the atmosphere with a spicy and sweet scents too, cause all senses need to enjoy this time of the year, right?! Too early to talk about your week-end plans?!! 🌲 Il nostro albero di Natale è già al suo posto, pronto per essere decorato (in tutto il suo stile minimale!) palline e decorazioni sono state controllate ieri (perché chissà mai che c’è bisogno di qualcosa di nuovo😜!) quindi direi che questo fine settimana sarà all’insegna del Natale al 100%! Manca solo il forno acceso e l’odore di spezie e zucchero nell’aria, perché si sa, tutti i sensi vanno stimolati, giusto?! E tu?!!Troppo presto per parlare dei tuoi piani per il fine settimana!!? . . . #adaywithv #contea6 #contea6xmas #seasonspoetry #slowandsimpledays #believeinastory #simpleisthebest #theartofslow #stylingandseasons #liveslow #asimplechristmas #christmasstyling #heitermoments #kindlecuriosity #folkandstory #thatscandinavianfeeling #aquitestyle_festive

Take your time
No one is going to stand up at your funeral and say, “She had a really expensive couch and great shoes." (But picturing us talking about each other like this does make me laugh...) Don’t make life about stuff. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope they stand up at mine and say “she was such a kind human and DAMN was she funny, just the funniest I’ve ever met!” And I don’t need any stuff to be any of that - something I remind myself of often when I get roped into #thatstufflife every now and again. What do you hope they say about you? #thatnostufflife
Did you know we have 2 bedrooms? This is our full bed and we also have a queen master.
Love to follow the simple lines and shapes in everyday life :: What about this minimal style and elegant pendant of the Collection HOOP :: diameter about 30mm and it comes together with a black linen cord
This is how we hang out most days. The girls look cute and I look like some form of the Joker with a dry shampoo’d mom bun until I actually look in a mirror come nap time to wipe away mascara remnants from my eyes. Tell me I’m not the only one lol. It’s all good though, all I care to remember are their laughs and hugs right now. They won’t remember what I looked like anyways 😆... thank heavens. And, I save money because if I get baby puke on my sweats I don’t have to send them to the dry cleaners.

Another good thing about staying with my parents is more snow. I love watching the snow fall, even if it makes my joints hurt terribly. I’m trying to cultivate an attitude of gratitude and find the positives during this difficult time. It really makes a difference in my happiness and mental health. Winter is still more than a month away, so hopefully I have lots more snow to look forward to ❄️⛄️❄️ . . . . . . . #lookonthebrightside #findthepositive #gratitude #attitudeofgratitude #happy #snow #snowday #letitsnow #slowliving #theartofslowliving #aseasonalshift #embracingtheseasons #livethelittlethings #seekthesimplicity #simpleliving #thehappynow #liveslow #slowhappylife #chronicillness

Fun fact: my mindset towards money has changed a lot since I bought a house. How could it not? After all, It is the biggest purchase I'll ever make. If you want to read more about how my mindset has changed, you can read it on the blog this week! #linkinbio .

Emidio and other children being served breakfast at a Compassion Center, a safe oasis amid a rough neighborhood, where he is free to learn and play, and is fed. The past couple of weeks I have been showing you the neighborhood, and it’s people, that surround the life of a young 8 year old little boy living in a difficult neighborhood in northeastern Brazil. These next several weeks will be a “day in the life” type of photo essay about that little boy. His name is Emidio. He is about the same age as I was when I was adopted by an American family. An event that saw my life moved from Korea to America. From an orphanage to a home. From being an orphan to having parents once again. As difficult and challenging as Emidio‘s life is, like many children the world over in similarly difficult circumstances, he regularly still finds resilience from a crushing cynicism and despair that would be all too understandable. In spite of his poverty and the injustice of that, he daily finds joy and reasons to laugh and even to be playfully mischievous. His ferocious desire to learn (something many children around the world are denied) fuels his dreams and hopes. @Compassion International has interceded and is helping to give him and millions of other children like him a chance to realize their dreams and hopes for a better and more just life. I was privileged to be able to help tell the story of a child’s life slowly coming out from the weight of hopelessness. It was difficult while documenting this boy’s life not to draw some parallels with my own personal story from poverty to possibilities, but that is a different story for another time. This story, is Emidios. His family lives in a home that I estimate is no larger than something like 9’ x 6’ in its entirety. I’m 6’2” and I could barely lay flat without always hitting a wall.
Already thinking about the weekend? Us too. 😅 Throw some funky patterns together for an unexpected vibe!
adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience 🌲🌤🍂
