A year ago our fish Pe left us. Helena remembers him sometimes and this week she drew him a picture in which Hector also appears. 🐠🐠🐠 . . . . . . #hiyapapayaphotoaday #365_happysnaps
Fun times with this animated boy. Swipe to see his cheeky vs regular smile.
I don't have anything to say here so I'll leave you with a quote from one of my favorite books. "Nothing feels real, but that’s not a problem because she still hopes that at some point she’ll wake up and this will all have been a dream." - A hundred pieces of me by Lucy Dillon. - - - (#folkandstory #simplethingsmadebeautiful #daysofsmallthings #ofsimplethings #polaroideffect )
Baby’s first hike! Definitely loving my new @happybaby carrier, not only does it make going places easy but it’s totally saving my back during the less glamorous moments of motherhood... like when your baby decides he will only eat if you are holding him vertically and walking in circles 😵
I drove a scooter for the first time in Key West this past weekend. Under the stars. Under the sun. I learned a lot with 150cc’s under my ass and the ether in my hair. With one hand on the gas and one hand being undressed by the wind. I am no longer surprised by these things. By the cosmic continuing education I’m in. Without any experience driving something with two wheels on my own I was insistent that I at least give it a shot instead of letting Walker play chariot. Nerves swam laps in my belly as my feet came off the ground and the mechanics of gas, rear brake, front brake, horn all found some sense in the wiring of my brain. - “Am I being stubborn?” my inner voice pondered as I took some sketchy first steps on my own. “Which one is the brake, again?” “Make sure you lean on the turns.” he offered with an assuring grin as I told that voice to shut the fuck up. Make sure you lean on the turns. Isn’t this the calling of my life? Of OUR lives? To lean in? When shit gets real and we’re being called to show up, lean in. When we’re unsure of our capacity to meet what’s around the next bend, lean in. When we can’t see what’s coming, lean in. When things are constantly in flux, guaranteed ONLY to change, lean in. When we are faced with the choice of freedom or fear, lean in. When the world moves by slowly, lean in. When you’re hitting top speed, lean in. When we need to be driven, lean in. When we can ride on our own, lean in. - (PS. only almost killed myself once, and going full speed is really, really fucking fun) #beinghumanisweird

Trying to learn what it means to take breaks. - Even though this required a bit more effort than just flipping on the tv or scrolling through my phone, the act of creating just for the sake of creating left me feeling a little more rested than usual. Sometimes, I think creativity just wants to be practiced without being a to-do list item. - Thankful for @marigold_sf for being stocked with these blooms and giving me some pointers for ikebana 🌾

Off to a really good start with teaching Noni the importance of self-love. What are some of your favourite baby books that encourage empowerment and positive ideas? We love the Little People, Big Dreams books, but have been eyeing up A is for Activist and Bedtime Stories for Rebel Girls • • • • • #nonimaggie #winnipeg #ywg #motherhoodthroughinstagram #uniteinmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #honestmotherhood #honestlymothering #myhonestmotherhood #momhub #socialmediamom #momsofig #themotherhoodcorner #nestingly #simplethingsmadebeautiful #treasuringlittlememories #microinfluencer #selflove

How do kids grow up so quickly? It kills me how fast time flies. This little mermaid is 4 today and I legitimately don’t know where the time went! Spending some good time with the family & friends visiting this weekend. I scheduled some time off for the weekend + it’s been a blast! Thank you so much for the emails + messages! I’ll be getting back to everyone this evening! #jacksonvillenc #jacksonvillencphotographer #wilmingtonnc #wilmingtonncphotographer #emeraldislenc #emeraldislephotographer #camplejeune #camplejeunephotographer #surfcity #carolinabeach #carolinabeachphotographer #ncphotographer #weddingphotographer #elopementphotographer #destinationphotographer #rts #therisingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #lifeofaphotographer #thatsdarling #thedarlingmovement #letthembelittle #growingup #homeschoolkids #simplethingsmadebeautiful #makemoments #calledtocreate

Back after a magical two weeks on the island today. So many photos, of Whidbey and of Andalusia, to show you. But in the meantime my little garden is all dried up, except for one perfect #rose that was waiting for me. (Vase and candlestick holder by @notary__ceramics , other vases by @dianafayt and @workshopthegranite , painting by @matirose , glassy babies by @glassybaby ).

Let Me Count The Ways 🌹💕
⠀ Had a lazy morning... woke up to thunderstorms... I like lingering and listening to the rain... And now I'm glad it turned beautiful and didn't rain all day 😂⠀ ⠀ I took this photo at the botanical gardens when the misting came on to water the Orchids... it was so pretty.⠀ ⠀ *Used 2 Lil Owls - Euphoria preset⠀ *Helios 44-2 lens⠀ ⠀ #inspiredbyflowers #inspiredbynature_ #gatheredstyle #alliseeispretty #forflowerlovers #flatlayforever #petals_perfection #stillswithstories #moody_tones #dsfloral #floral_perfection #underthefloralspell #wildforflowers #thebotanicalseries #ihavethisthingforflowers #theslowdowncollective #ccseasonal #momentslikethis #fortheloveofflowers #aquietstyle #justbefloral #stillswithstories #slowlivingforlife #floralstylesgf #simplenaturefinds #simplethingsmadebeautiful #curated_nature #2lilowlstextures #2lilowlspreset #2lilowls
Started the day in a bikini in the garden for #bemorewitwitwoo (see link in bio for why #bloggers are doing this today). Then there was a little chat with a water company who appear to have lost my bill payment (round two on Monday after a long chat with my bank who are *very* confused by this.) Other disasters and shoe shopping followed, but I'm hoping to finish the day with a lift after a successful chicken dish and heading for a film evening. Will be blogging. #whplookup #mystoryoflight #fb
Happy first day of summer holidays! I loved the sheer relief on parents faces at yesterday’s school pick up and drop off 😆 What did you do on your first day of freedom? ☀️ #simplenaturefinds
p.s. Italy, I miss you ❤️
Today, our hearts couldn't be more content! ❤️ Whilst traveling home from the most wonderful family day out at the farm, Amelie woke up from her nap and said in the cutest, sleepiest voice "Thank you Mummy and Daddy for a bootiful day". This is the kind of thing I'm talking about when I say she is beyond her years! The most thankful, beautiful little soul, we're so blessed to call you our own. 🌿
Remember, it’s never too late to be incredible. I just watched “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and wow I love it so much ❤️😭
It’s been a crazy week. After arriving home from hols it was straight to an all day appointment at the hospital, followed by a mad week of work catch up, and then straight down to Loughborough for my sons graduation. I know it’s not normally cool to post yourself or family stuff, but here’s me with two of my beautiful kids (my other daughter unfortunately couldn’t get off work ) I’m immensely proud of all of them but this was his day and this is my high five to it. Finally a Physics Graduate and we’re all super chuffed. After much celebration now time for some well deserved weekend down time.... normal service to be resumed. Happy Saturday fine folk ! . . . #familygoals #motherofthree #gradutionday #graduation #proudmother #littlestoriesofmylife #momentsofmine #feelfreefeed #thatauthenticfeeling #livethelittlethings #todaysgoodthing #simplethingsmadebeautiful #photosinbetween #documentyourdays #kindredmemories #seekmoments #livingmybestlife #freeupmyinsta #enjoyinglife #enjoythelittlethings #enjoytheday #lifesajourney #dreambig #lifediaries #chooselife #worldisyouroyster #startingout #hellorealworld
Guys, the Spoonesaurus Gathering is in ONE WEEK!! For the three of you who don't know what I'm talking about, the Spoonesaurus Gathering is a get together of spooncarvers that @mattwhite_tmw and I host twice a year. Matt hosted the first on in March, and now I'm hosting the second one next Saturday, July 28 at my home in western Massachusetts. It's all day, it's FREE, and we are gonna carve and chat and talk shop and share ideas and cook food on the grill and over the fire. If it's raining we will inhabit the house, but otherwise we will be outside. It will be just the one day, but if you need camp in the yard the night before or after just let me know. Bring your tools and what you're working on, bring food for yourself and to share, and bring some of your work to show off! If you haven't already done so, please let me know if you plan to attend so I can panic more effectively. I look forward to seeing you there. Or here. Yeah, here, cause I'm sitting on the staircase. Oh whatever. You know what I mean... #spoonesaurus #spooncarving #designermaker #wabisabi #simplethingsmadebeautiful #tellnewengland #newenglandliving #berkshires #newengland #newenglandcarvers #woodenspoon #woodenpoons #coffeescoop #coffeecoffeecoffee #caffeine

“Saturday is what gives us a weekend of enjoyment.” // Anthony T.

‘All you need is faith, trust & a little bit of pixie dust!’ ✨ Just O N E week to go now, one whole long, busy week stands in between me and my favourite place in the world! Believe it or not, the kids STILL don’t know! I have no idea how I’ve kept it in this long but I just need to hold out a little longer and I’m sure it will all be worth it! I physically cannot wait to see the look on Dylan’s face; this one however will have absolutely no clue what’s going on, but will be chuffed to bits seeing her brother bursting with excitement! 🖤 •
I’m so thrilled to now have the ability to open Sweet Magnolia full time! With the addition of our new seamstress, we’re able to serve you more efficiently! We’ve got something big on the horizon and this takes us one step closer to being able to share it with you. Thank you for your support throughout our journey!

Today was a good day. And that ice cream was 👌😍😎👀👏 #3generations
Мне бы сесть и помолиться Богу своему. Бог мой воин, Бог мой птица, Бог ведет войну. У него свои законы и свои права. Бог мой легкий, невесомый. Бог без алтаря. Бог - долины, бог - озера, бог - земля вокруг. Бог - не цепи и оковы, Тополиный пух... . . Мои стихи. Екатерина Кабанова. . .
Can you even believe these sweet babies??! I can’t wait to finish editing their portrait session and so happy their Momma brought them to me. 😍 Newborn sessions in my living room are becoming the new norm! Rather than spending so much time setting up and tearing down my portable studio we all get to relax and enjoy every moment focusing on the newest addition(s). 💕 **No longer offering “I come to you” newborn sessions unless medical emergency requires. Everyone has been so much more relaxed and happy coming to me! 🙌🏽📸💕
