Haven't been to Kew Gardens for ages but just found this photo from last year with all autumnal beauties in the Alpine House. Love all the colours and all the terracotta pots. Kew I will be back, I promise. 😉

Today I'm grateful for unexpected snowdays and my warm home. I love spending the day with my little family. We braved the cold for a few minutes today before spending the rest of the day warm and toasty in the house. #30daysofgratitude#mylittlefamily#makingmemories
Segunda vuelta al sol de Helena. Dos años despertando todos los días al lado de esta carita sonriente. No hay un día que pase en el que no nos alegre con sus ocurrencias, canciones y abrazos ¡Que los cumplas feliz, bebita de mamá y papá!
Lillemanden er hentet hjem og her troede jeg vi skulle hygge os, men han faldt i søvn på vej hjem i bilen og ligger nu på sofaen og sover 🌸 Heldigvis er det weekend igen og han kan få lov at sove lidt uden at det gør alt for meget hvis han ikke kan falde i søvn til tiden i aften. Håber i andre får en god start på weekenden 🍂
I say “are you excited for your turkey feast today?” He says “i’m excited for boogers!” 🤦🏻♀️
We as women are always trying to cover up characteristics about ourselves that we feel don’t measure up in this world. We wear makeup to hide blemishes, we wear loose fitting clothing to hide stomach rolls, and we wear a fake smile so that the world believes we have it all put together. .
I’m not saying you should start wearing tight clothes and forgo the makeup, but I am asking you to reassess your reason for covering up. .
Of course, we want to look and feel beautiful. But with or without those things, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Because your BEAUTY is rooted in CHRIST, not your COVERUPS. .
All of us have the kingdom of God within us and our faces reflect His glory. His love shines out of us and shows the world what TRUE, PERFECT BEAUTY IS. ❤️
"You are altogether beautiful, my love;
there is no flaw in you." - Song of Songs 4:7
We broke curfew to go to a #friendsgiving and partied all night long (till 9 PM, that is... 🙈) As we were walking home, a surprise fireworks show lit up the night sky ( @deartahvy’s first!) 🎇 We stopped to watch the gorgeous streaks of light cascading down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As we stood there, I thought about how good it felt to be with my kind of people again. The wild ones, the happy, the silly, the free. The crazy acrobats handstanding on the streets, having too much fun to care what anyone else thinks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve tried (maybe too hard) to make mom friends and properly mom-ify my life. To schedule my days into baby activities & do “educational” things for Tahvy. But really, I keep coming back to the same conclusion: how silly this is of me! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll be honest: I don’t really like talking about sleep schedules or sitting through baby classes. I could care less what anyone’s pediatrician thinks. I don’t have a lot in common with most moms besides the fact that we have a baby. And my soul craves something so much deeper, more connected, more playful, more challenging, more FUN. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I’m calling in my tribe, sisters and brothers, moms and non-moms alike. Come be with us, in real life, to do things we actually like. 😂 If you’re in Philly, great! And if not, come visit! We have a spare bedroom for you... ‘Cause I’m finally ready to start cutting classes so I don’t skip out on LIFE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It feels so good to shake off silly beliefs & re-pattern into who is truly me. Me, a distant & vague memory... but slowly in the cracks of this unexpectedly joy I remember the Bliss of my Being. The Wild Child who is always free. Nomadic. spirited, full of laughter & song, dancing & prancing all night long. 💃🏻
