“This is the season she will make beautiful things. Not perfect things but honest things that speak to who she is and who she is called to be.” - @morganharpernichols
I’m in a season of transition myself, and sometimes it’s easy to let the road blocks and struggles of growing a small business get in the way of my goals. But with the new year approaching, I’m vowing to focus on what’s truly important. My art. The thing that fuels my soul, the reason why I’m in this season in the first place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I love this quote because it is so true! To me it's similar to the idea of thoughts, becoming words, becoming actions, etc... I know I've found I am more productive on the days I take the extra time to get dressed. AND, thanks to the KonMari method, (and prevalence of dry shampoo!) my simplified closet and bathroom routines make getting ready for the day a breeze. I can get the essentials done in 10 minutes no problem!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There was a time where I didn't pay attention to how I dressed at home, because it seemed counter productive. I figured since I was just working from home, and no one would see me, I could use that time to get more important things done! But whenever I went this route, I always ended up feeling like a mess by the end of the day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So now, even if I don't plan to leave the house because I'm working from home, or if it's my day to be home with the boys, I spend some time taking pride in my appearance. And it's not about what others will see or think, it's about what I see and think about myself. The boost I get in my own self confidence makes a huge difference in my overall day, and is totally worth the 10 minutes! What about you guys?! Agree or disagree? Need to streamline your closet? Check out my closet workshop coming up on Jan 27! More details through the link in my profile. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I think one of the things I’ve changed for myself this year is to stop and be still more. Focus on self care.
Having one of those lush days when things just go well ❤❤❤ I took my baby to a sing song session at my local library this morning.
We walked through park on way home saying hello to dogs 😂
We ate yummy lunch of avocados and scrambled egg together.
I then enjoyed a delicious coffee and now I'm off to meet a lovely friend and her gorgeous kids at soft play 😍
Simple things make me happy xxx
I feel so grateful for the life I live ❤❤❤ #thisholisticlife #simplepleasures #mumlife

I like to savour the pleasure of dressing the house for Christmas across several weeks, so I did a spot of festive foraging at the weekend.. I imagine I looked a little comical returning from my morning dog walk clutching this bundle (and quite a lot more) gleaned from the forest floor.
The tiny cones may become a garnish for gifts, or even napkins on the table. And I think I'll attempt to turn the sticks, with their vibrant green lichen and moss adornment, into a simple star wreath for the back door.
For me, it is these moments that make the run up to Christmas special.
Calm amidst the hustle and bustle.

This smile is self made ✨
No seriously I fought like Hell to be this happy, and for anyone else fighting this battle just remember that there isn’t a person walking this earth that has the the authority to judge you, your situations , or your decisions . YOU have to be ok with them, seriously that’s it. We work so hard to please people outside of our selves that we get lost in transition and then life just SUCKS
——— I quickly came to the conclusion that life isn’t for me ! As I transition back into my creative space I ask that you be kind.( mama taught you better than that😂 ) I also ask that today you do something for you , something that brings out that smile I know you fought so damn hard for. It looks beautiful on you. ❤️

Take whatever opportunities you can to experience joy.
Joy is better than happiness, in my opinion. Joy is centred in the present. It is soulful and uplifting. ☃️ Last weekend, I was treated to an evening away. It was relaxing and fun, and I seized every moment of joy. ☃️ Even though it was an adult weekend, I saw everything through a child's eyes. I did things I hadn't done in a while and did it as if for the first time. That vanilla latte and eggs Benedict never tasted so good! ☃️ We experienced a winter wonderland, with the snow-covered landscape and ski hills behind us, blustery cold hitting our faces, lit paths, fire pits, fireworks in the sky - great food, wine and company, dancing, and stealing kisses. It was pure magic.
It was a reminder to keep those feelings alive. To stop and be mindful -- out in the world, in my work, with my partner, with my child. And to jump on something when the moment is right. ☃️ May you find pleasure in the little things today and seize your joy. ☃️ #joy #joyful #happy #relationships #love #mindfulness #mindfulnessmatters #mindfulwalking #getoutside #mindfuleating #mentalhealthmatters #tuesdaymotivation #tuesdaythoughts #seizetheday #seizethemoment #simplepleasures #kissme

"(...)le atraía tanto esta casa que, cada vez que dábamos un paseo, se detenía ante ella, analizaba su original construcción, sin ladrillo ni cemento, sus entibos de roble sustentando las piedras de toba, el balconaje de hierro, los enjutos ventanucos al norte, con minúsculos cuarterones móviles. Una tarde se introdujo por el hueco de una puerta lateral y quedó prendada de la solidez de su fábrica: el envigado, los puntales, las sólidas zapatas, el entarimado de tabla ancha, con quejidos dolientes cuando se pisaba."

This cranberry apple crisp is the perfect blend of sweet and tart winter flavors. Try doubling the oat topping portion of any crisp recipe for an added dose of delicious.
Sometimes you don’t need a fancy spread, you just need the basics.
