This last weekend Brynn and I hopped on a flight to Seattle. I was picked up by @hazelandholly and @mindfulwithoils and we drove to the Oregon coast. I met some of the most amazing Instagram friends who have all connected through Young Living. We have built businesses, friendships and connected over coffees, wine and an app called voxer 🤣 These women are inspiring. They are mothers, creatives, hard workers and some of the kindest women I know. Thank you all for a beautiful weekend- I’m so thankful to have gotten real hugs in real life. 🤗 Can’t wait to do it all again next year! @frecklebabyllc @hellocharlieshop @hazelandholly @mindfulwithoils @ladyandlittle @amanda.hug.and.kiss @ashleyshawl @morganarchuleta . . To my team who wasn’t able to come, I can’t wait until next years meet up!
We’ve have another potential colour BAN under review!

Super happy to be kicking off another week 🤗 Our weekend was filled with more pumpkin patches (your surprised, we know 🤪) and other fall activities...and chores and all that other adult stuff.⠀ ⠀ What's for dinner tonight? I totally forgot to meal plan over the weekend and now I'm scrambling!⠀ ⠀ #okayestmoms #motherofwildlings #momdotme #acupofmotherhood #documentyourdays #mytinymoments #sacramentoblogger #californiablogger #littleandbrave #momswhoblog #heymama #momswithcameras #clickinmom #pursuepretty #momslivinghappy #littlestoriesofmylife #inspiremyinstagram #momentsofmine #bloggerdiaries #mom_hub #justmomlife #lifeasmama #inbeautyandchaos #gettingmommywithit #youmombabe #momsauthority #memoirsofmotherhood
Another pumpkin patch picture because 😍😍😍 • And yes, she’s been wearing these bloomers on repeat because they look like fall but in reality it’s 80° here 😏🤷🏻‍♀️ • And just so you don’t think all I do is post cute pictures and have all these perfect moments, not even 2 seconds after this picture was taken she had a massive blow out and I changed her on a hay bale 😆
Happy MONDAY! Feeling SUPER TIRED today and also kind of NOSTALGIC 😌 So here is one from my summer holidays in Corfu 🇬🇷 ❤ Tell me, how was your Monday? xx

Another weekend, another pumpkin patch. This time near my moms house with my sister and my niece. Still no sun though! How was your weekend?
We went to the pumpkin patch yesterday and the kids had a blast. Yes, it’s one more thing to scratch off of our Fall bucket list. But I can’t help but think of how I was hypercritical of how I looked in the photos we took. . . . Thinking this way put a teeny tiny damper on how I was feeling. Not enough to ruin the evening (we had tons of fun ) but enough to have me feeling less confident and a little deflated. . . . I know it’s important to take pictures with my kids. Most of the time I’m behind the camera. But I also want to feel good about what I look like in those photos. After really thinking about it this morning I decided not to compare myself and just keep moving. Those are the most positive steps for me to take! . . . Affirmations are helpful to me. I say them out loud and I write one in planner as a focus for the day. . . . Just imagine how you’d feel starting your day with a powerful, encouraging, and positive message every single morning. You’d feel confident, empowered and safe to be you. . . . Grab my free ebook all about affirmations- the link is in my bio. You can also check out my positivity based podcast- just scroll down. ❤️

💥Making external changes without making internal changes is a recipe for short term success ONLY.💥 Meditation, reading personal development books, and diving into other forms of learning about myself has completely changed my life. 🕉️📚💫 I physically see myself differently. I'm more confident in my own skin and in my own thoughts. Things that used to give me anxiety and depression are now more manageable. The longer I work on the internal (going on 4 years now) the more at peace and happy I become. ✌️😊 The more at peace and happy I am, the more of myself I'm able to give to others who seek the same peace and happiness. 😎
For the last ten weeks I’ve been doing yoga almost every day! I’ve tried to do this so many times but this is the longest I’ve ever lasted, and it’s thanks to you tube videos. I’ve put a wee thing on the blog about five you tubers I’ve been trying out and like (spoiler: it’s @adrienelouise @mind_body_bowl @fightmasteryoga @kinoyoga and @tarastiles ) and some ones I liked less.

Wir haben den Sonntag gestern im Wald an der Diepeschrather Mühle verbracht 🍄🌲 Und wieder mal wurde uns gezeigt, dass unser Großer der totale Naturbursche ist. Gibt man ihm einen Stock in die Hand, mit dem er im Matsch oder feuchten Waldboden rumstochern kann, ist er happy! Auch die Libellen am Weiher zu beobachten fand er mehr als spannend! Hier waren wir bestimmt nicht zum letzten Mal! Ich hoffe ihr habt das sonnige Herbstwetter auch draußen genossen und seid heute gut in die neue Woche gestartet! ☀️🍂 . . . . #littlestoriesofmylife #toddler #lebenalsmama #meinejungs #lebenmitkindern #instamamagang #jungsmama #herbst #cologne #kölnbloggt #mamablogger_de
golden autumn 💔
Some magical autumn is happening here in Lithuania. 🍂 Even though I love living in the city, I can't get through the week without enjoying at least a little bit of nature. Good thing we're such a small country that you can find yourself in the woods just by driving a few minutes farther from the city. If I wouldn't be a doll maker, my other dream profession would be something that includes taking care of plants, preserving the nature, exploring and being outdoors. Not sure what that would be though, maybe a park ranger, haha. 😀🤔

Here’s something sweet for y’all on this Monday morning! 😍 THIS IS PARENTHOOD. Congrats on your feature @elena_gilinsky ! Thanks for tagging us. • • Selected By: @ohmamaperez • • Follow us at: @this.is.parenthood • Tag #this_is_parenthood #thisisparenthood or #parenthood to be featured!
I turned from a fall hater to a fall admirer and can' t enough of the light and the colors. So I am sitting on the terrace of a famous hotel in Bern, sip a glass of red wine and look and look and look at the museum that seems like a castle out of a fairy tale, the trees and the mountains in the background that seem to fade away. My plan was to go home, go for a long walk, tidy up, read something that brings me ahead and watch an episode of "Hinterland" on Netflix. And now I am having a blast. I can still tidy the apartment and read later, but only now light and view are fantastic. Always try to enjoy the moment and treat yourself nicely #fallcolors #beautifulfallday #fallpleasures #enjoyingtheevening #eveningthoughts #littlepearlsofwisdom #leisuretime #idling #littlestoriesofmylife #momentsofmine #seizethemoment #pamperyourself #photosinbetween #ilove_bern #magicbern #living_europe #living_switzerland #herbstfarben #schönerherbsttag #herbstlaub #herbstfreuden #feierabend #frei #gedanken #machdirsschön #bernischeshistorischesmuseum #diestilvollefrau
Pictures of my kids never get as many likes as my Macrame, but they are my greatest creation of all. Just look at that little face, he’s too cute not to share and him and his big sis take up way more of my time than I spend making knots, I should show their faces around here more often! Today we went mushroom foraging in the woods. I’ve been on a great course before with @jesperlaunder but today was my first solo jaunt. I’m 99% I’ve identified the first mushrooms 👉🏼 as Trooping Funnel but not sure on the last 2, any ideas 🤔 Also, Indie says if you don’t like his picture he’s gonna cry, don’t be heartless people 😉
What keeps you awake at night? I am notorious for lying there worrying about the most ridiculous of things feeling my heart rate race and thump in my chest. I am sure it’s all linked to the peri-menopause as I never used to have trouble sleeping. In fact I don’t have trouble at all dropping off but when the magic time of around 3.30am arrives then Ding! I’m awake and worried about everything from my Sons (that can take several hours!) money, my Mother, my Sister my Daughter , did we lock the back door?, how long were Spandau Ballet No1 with True? My ceramics (much worse if the kiln is on) do we drink too much wine? Do we eat enough fruit, did the children brush their teeth? Do we spend too much time online? Am I keeping up with all my Instagram comments and am I being a good friend? Is Howard Jones still singing New Song? Why was my school uniform a floor length brown kilt? Elliotts A levels (two years away!) What would I cook if Matt went away for a night ( he never goes away And I never cook), Have I got time to make all the ceramics I have promised everyone? Should I have started Christmas shopping ( this one usually starts in September & I barely give Christmas a passing thought until November when I am awake) Lists lists lists that evaporate when morning comes. Some of the fears I have are too sad and awful to write down here and I literally lie there in terror sobbing. It’s ridiculous because in the morning absolutely nothing is as bad as it seemed at 3.30am and as Matt and my Mum always say There is nothing that can’t be sorted out. Does anybody else lay awake in the small hours with the weight of the world on their shoulders and what can I do about it? I have tried no alcohol/ herbal tea/ sex/ early nights/ yoga/ hot baths/ yes alcohol/ am going to try Horlicks tonight which makes me feel like my Grandma and will also probably make me need to visit the bathroom in the night! Oh the glamour!
Happy Monday, lovelies! There’s one thing that I often miss when I’m travelling and that’s making my own breakfast. . Don’t get me wrong, I love to go to a nice café for breakfast or eat in the hotel, but I’m very used to make my own things as I’m slightly obsessed with cooking and baking. . What do you usually eat for breakfast? I’m not always eating waffles, mind you. I usually have toast, coffee/matcha and a chiaseed bowl ☕ . But whenever I do make waffles, I always have enough to freeze in and then I experiment with toppings. Since I'm an Autumn kid, I kept the flavours spicy yet fresh 😊 . That sounds way more technical than it actually is, haha. I basically added a spiced apple topping and the freshness comes from the orange and pomegranate seeds 🤗 . And to be extraaaaa fancy, a dusting of icing sugar, hehe. . Ps. Waffle recipe by @lauravitale (really fail-proof in my opinion!) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #startwithwhy #livemoremagic #doitfortheprocess #handsandhustle #intentionalliving #choosejoy #dontquityourdaydream #seekthesimplicity #abmlifeisbeautiful #myunicornlife #happinesseverywhere #littlestoriesofmylife #stillswithstories #myeverydaymagic #girlsborntotravel #allthebeautifulthings #flowering #shewhowanders #abmlifeiscolorful #abmlifeissweet   #seekinspirecreate #alliseeispretty #creativehappylife #magicalmoments #abmtravelbug #theeverygirltravels  #simpleliving #breakfastinbed #fallvibes #simplethingsmadebeautiful
I am part of the 1 in 4 women who has lost a child. I’ve had 3 miscarriages, the last one just 2 1/2 months ago, & an abortion 20 years ago. __ Please know it’s ok to grieve! It’s part of the healing process. Your child, no matter how far along you were in pregnancy, was a valuable life. __ Maybe you haven’t miscarried, but you’ve had an abortion & are struggling with knowing if you’re allowed to grieve. You are! Don’t let guilt or regret convince you can’t grieve your child. __ Please click the link in my bio to read a post I wrote a few years ago about grieving unborn children. #LivelyFaith #LivelyMotherhood #miscarriage #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness #postabortive #griefsupport #iam1in4
Espresso pairs beautifully with gloomy British weather ☕️
Give it to me!! 🐪 I read this and thought if you only had 4 words what would they be?? Hmmm? Connect, Wander, Create, Love? or Laugh, Love, Travel , Paint? 🐪 🐪 🐪
Dave works away with reasonable regularity - but it's usually just a night every couple of weeks, occasionally we get a run of weeks where he's away once a week. I don't mind it for most part though it can be a bit of a pain trying to sort out getting the kids to all their various activities - sometimes I just have to drop the balls and accept that Cubs / Swimming / Beavers / Street Dance won't happen, other times I manage to wing it with the help of friends! This week his trips have fallen back to back and we basically won't see him now till Thursday night - he is actually home tomorrow but so late that I will be in bed and we'll be out before he gets up on Wed morning because I'm teaching. It's a bit rubbish but it's just one of those things.
I would have never believed you If three years ago you told me I'd be here

In your face, Monday! After a very long week, today started on an exhausted note.... The grey, overcast, wet weather with cooler temperatures meant that my caffeine induced morning at the skate park with the boy was off. However we entertained ourselves by other means - dodging yet more housework & chores. So I think I can safely say that’s Monday ✅ off!
