My loves, my life. I know that possibly, in some way, society suggests that I should need something more than ‘just’ this, that maybe I’m missing out on some great adventure or exciting career progression, but right here and right now, this is all I could ever have dreamt of 😍😍

✈️ nothing beats seeing a happy little girl in her new dress. Thanks for the feedback @k_buns14 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜
Parenting wild boys is legit like banging your head against a brick wall whilst smiling. I love it so much but it does hurt my brain on the daily. They don’t listen to me (especially little Max) and by midday I’m so sick of hearing my own voice saying the same shit over and over again that I’m often eating ice cream out of the tub or quietly contemplating day drinking to make the day go faster. Moments like this precious one make it all worthwhile.
In other news, how dreamy are my veins in my head? #fierceandflossy
Good morning, beautiful! Heute hat Julia Geburtstag. Und wir haben schon eine Pfannkuchentorte von @kasteninblau.de bekommen. Lecker. Gestern und vorgestern waren wir ein bisschen klettern in #tafraout - und sind gleich mal kläglich gescheitert weil wir uns überschätzt haben. Darum gibt’s ab jetzt täglich ein bisschen Krafttraining, damit wir das nächste mal besser vorbereitet sind.
NOT just empty calories but rather worse!!
Sugar can lead to not only obesity but can also lead to non alcoholic liver disease! ...
The inflammation that sugar causes also leads to other chronic illnesses! ...
FUN FACT!! White sugar is bleached and filtered through bone char!! What is bone char you ask? Its charred animal bones 😱
Four years ago today. Four years married, ten years together, three daughters, one dog, one cat (RIP Iris), a few flats and one house. Thanks for putting up with me @thomthumb84. I *might* not always be in the right even though I pretend I am, and I *might* use most of my patience up on the girls, but at the end of the day we’re a good team 💑
A wet and gloomy day at Universal Studios today so I only managed to photograph the empty “streets” while I found a dry place to wait while the boys went on their rides 🌧 the only positive was the fact their were no lines anywhere and we managed to get on every attraction except for one!

Please shower some love either by liking or comment on the picture 🤗
Does anyone know of a website designer? I just revamped my whole website, and it didn’t even save. I give up. If you know a good designer that can seriously help me out, it would be much appreciated! 💛
Taking the first step is always hard. Go chase your dream darling for daddy and mummy is here for you.
You never know how much you meant to us but we love you more than you know.

These two had an absolute blast sledding today 🛷. We’ve been slowing our says down a lot to try and be more considerate as parents. Theodore’s really wanting to make his own choices about everything, so we are doing our best to let him a majority of the time. It’s not always easy but the words “hurry up” are on my lips less than they used to be.
I just keep reminding myself he won’t be this little much longer. •••••••••
With school starting in a little over a week. We are slowly getting Grace ready for prep!
1st step making sure she can easily open her new lunch box!
It wasn’t as easy as I thought as the Go Green lunch box has a lock. This is a great system so that the sections don’t mix and the food stays fresh. However if you can’t read the open or closed just yet it’s a bit frustrating. But after a quick #mumhack of drawing a smiley face for when its opened and a sad face when it’s locked. She’s now all sorted!! — this is not a Instagram staged lunch box. Grace doesn’t have my sweet tooth and eats so much better than I do 😳—

💕 Grateful 💕 •
Today, in my IG stories, I posted about R+F being an industry disruptor and what that means for business. This company has been called the “Amazon of Skincare” and has been compared to other industry disruptors like Uber, Spotify and Airbnb. Things that were once looked at as weird or at the very least, out of the norm, like using your phone to request a ride from a stranger or staying in a strangers home while on vacation are now so commonplace we don’t even think twice about it. Not to mention the opportunities this “new way of life” has provided for people’s families. These companies though, at one time, broke the mold and totally changed the game. I feel super lucky to be apart of a company doing the exact same thing and that is forging the way and opening up the door for so many people like me. •
As I thought on it a little more today, I realized it’s more than just being excited to be a part of something big and growing. It’s being grateful for the opportunity to live the life I wasn’t sure I’d be able to live. I have wanted to be a mom for as long as I can remember. And as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to stay home with my kids. I loved teaching, but there’s no job I could love more than teaching my own kids. I wasn’t willing to spend all day teaching someone else’s kids while someone else got to teach mine. So, I’m grateful. Grateful for being open-minded enough to take a chance on something that, while may still be outside the box for some, is a blessing for my family. Grateful for taking a chance on myself instead of wondering “what if” and just wishing I could have the best of both worlds. I’m grateful for this time to watch my baby(ies) grow and learn because they will always be my most important work. ❤️

I haven’t been on here much lately and if you ask me why, my honest answer is that I’ve been in a post holiday, January blues, no motivation to do anything funk. I feel like these long, cold winter days are so brutal. My kids are sick of being home but if we go out they get sick. So we stay home. I’m normally a super upbeat and happy person so I know this is so unlike me. I decided I needed to try a couple things to help myself feel better so here’s what I’ve come up with. 1️⃣ Start working out again. 👍🏻 2️⃣ Take the kids out of the house every day even if it just means taking a drive and getting a Coke Zero somewhere. 🤷🏼♀️ 3️⃣ Start a new project. I asked Scott what he thought about painting our kitchen cabinets a few weeks ago and then... please see my stories for more info. 🤦🏼♀️🤣 Even after trying these things, I had one of the longest “mom days” today that I’ve had in a long time. It was hard. It was hard up until the last minute I put Jack in bed. But you know what? I wouldn’t choose anything else. Tomorrow is a new day and a fresh start. And soon enough winter will be over. So since I haven’t taken any photos lately, here’s one of my very favorite photos of Jackson from our Valentine’s photo shoot last year. 😍 If you made it through all that, please tell me what you do to keep your kids entertained in the winter??! 😜❄️ #jacksonscott#winterblues#wintersucks#januaryislong#valentinesday
A Boy and His Dog
These two have become SO CLOSE. They both tend to get a case of the wiggles around 4pm each day and spend a lot of time running in circles through the kitchen. Hand to God, last week, she found him on the couch and started barking at him until he got up and ran with her. .
Watching them learn to love and trust one another is one of the best gifts I could ever receive.
