I really REALLY wanted to have the perfect instagram worthy picture to share this weekend! But yesterday my babe had his first fever and his first projectile vomit and so instead of being with family, dressed up, enjoying heaps of food, I was here on this couch staring at our unfinished “Cambodia wall” with a hot sleepy babe snuggled skin to skin. Thankfully Wentz is feeling much better today. Thankfully the weather is absolutely beautiful. Thankfully we snuck over to my parents for a quick visit and brunch this morning. Thankfully we are healthy, fed, clothed, with a roof over our heads in a safe place to call home. Sending you all loving wishes of health, peace and sunshine ✌️ Rebecca #wearebarefootmamas
"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. ... To this day, especially in times of "disaster," I remember my mother's words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world." -Fred Rogers
When we face tragedy, it’s helpful to hold these hope-filled-words from a mother to her son close to our hearts. #gentleparenting#hopequotes#sghopeful

Heb jij er ook zoveel zin in om vrij te zijn? Of zit je met samengeknepen billen op de bank, hopend dat de vakantie snel voorbij zal gaan? Dat is ook ok!
Je kan de vakantie meer ontspannen en gezelliger te maken door ritme in de dag aan te brengen.
Zo simpel en vaak denken we er niet aan. Eet met elkaar aan tafel, 2 of 3 keer per dag. Dan kan je nog een keer fruit eten en bijvoorbeeld een spelletje spelen of knutselen met elkaar. In de middag eet je een koekje en drink je thee. Ook hier kan je weer even wat met elkaar doen, een spelletje, even kletsen, een boek lezen. Dat wat jullie past.
Zo heb je rondom eten al 5 momenten dat je samen bent, aandacht hebt voor je kinderen, momenten om even te ontspannen en verbinden.
Daar omheen kan je de dag verder plannen, in de ochtend naar de speeltuin, thuis lekker spelen of koekjes bakken met elkaar. Bijvoorbeeld boodschappen doen, klusjes in huis of met vriendinnen koffiedrinken.
Door het ritme ontstaat er rust, door die rust zit iedereen lekkerder in zijn vel. En is de vakantie een stuk leuker!
He is RISEN! Celebrating Easter with these two adorable chickies! 🐥🐥 thankful for every breath of this sweet life. *disclaimer: I bribed her with my phone to get her to smile. Don’t think for a second she’s easy to get a photo of 😂

Life with you has been amazing. Happy Birthday to the one who stared it all for us. Those eyes staring into my soul... I’ll never forget that first look. There is where it all began. ⠀
My favorite saying she had... “What are we doing today?”⠀
tell stories ⠀
Read more.... ⠀
play make believe ⠀
Look at her eyes.... with a spark of wonder, love, adoration, frustration, sorrow, joy, contentment... ⠀
What will we do today? ⠀
Talk about life, love, liberty, fairness, what’s next, twilight-year olds, school buses and more.... ⠀
The day she learned to walk, she was riding a bike soon after.... then driving a car and getting married ⠀
I still look at those eyes and remember all the days over the past 22-years and am grateful for it all 💕⠀
So.... What are we doing today? ⠀ #happybirthdayhanna#motherhood
For me, this has been an entire trip. But my Daddy said that He would never leave me or forsake me and He has proven to be beyond faithful.
In the obscure and confusing seasons when I felt like I was making no progress at all, He stayed in my mess with me, always seeing and believing the best in me, and encouraging me towards His perfect vision of who He created me to be.
Two major keys that I stumbled on along the way:
☝🏽Invest in yourself! We usually place tremendous value in what we can see and so we focus on WHAT we can see. This satisfies quantity but let's take a moment to measure the quality of our lives! How do you handle challenging situations? Or can we talk about if you hold grudges? How about worrying over finances?Alllll of this has been me! And let's be honest, some have secured the bag and others still tryna find the bag. But I have learnt not to just invest in material things y'all, but in material that would have open up my mind and feed my soul. The book 'Wholeness' by @toureroberts' is one that was a game changer for me. The @minding.my.faith subscription boxes are another great resource that you can check out as well.
✌🏽Be a good steward of your time! Yes God is beyond faithful, but we too must play a part in our wellness. I had to learn how to use my time more wisely. To trade off my favourite TV shows to spend time in His Word, or a good IG binge to press into His presence, bearing in mind that He will take care of what is outside of my scope but that I held responsibility and had to be intentional for what is within mine.
This can happen for you too, and I declare that it will, but you have to put in the work. I ain gonna lie, sometimes it can be tough, you may feel like throwing in the towel and turning back BUT at the end of it all, I promise that nothing would be more worth it! 🙏🏽💕

Posted @withrepost • @berrylicious.me **FOR ME, THERE ARE TWO THINGS THAT TOTALLY LACK SENSE**
1. Ekta kapoor's serials
2. Unrequited and unsolicited advice for having another child as early possible.
Let's talk about the latter ones.
Why are these 'opnionated' people in such hurry?
“Chloe, you better not be taking money from the cash register”! 😂 jokes, this was a couple of weeks ago when my lil Chloe dressed as a chef when we went to the @uowdiscoveryspace center in Wollongong. .
We had such a great time 🥰. Hope everyone has enjoyed Easter. ❤️

When someone’s attitude and behaviour towards you is negative, and you keep thinking about it, you are likely to imbibe their negativity.
Sagittarius loves a good party. Their natural philosophers, love to see the bright side of things and love to eat, drink and be merry.
Your kids will want to laugh and have fun. Get them outside as much as possible today. Hopefully it’s nice weather where you are and if you do egg hunts, they can be outside. Being outside will also help them metabolize all the junk they may eat today. Mother Earth is medicine for almost anything. 🌎
See if you can notice a difference in your mood after Luna moves out of Scorpio into Sagittarius around noon time edt.
Heya we are still alive👋 after the months and months of giant stress of trying to buy a house before we have to move out of this temporaly house and are homeless 😬it looks like we finally got a house! We put in several offers on several houses but we kept not getting it 😩 so we lowered our standards to basically any house as long as it had enough bedrooms.. definately not the prefered way of buying a house. But hey better than being homeless lol. The house is a total fixer upper so I just hope we can make something nice out of it in time. Once we get the key I'll give a little tour 🏡
When you’re snotty and you know it, you can count on @matys! #ad#matyscoughsyrup is drug free, organic, chemical free, and now available at your local @wholefoods! That’s a win-win for my family! 🙌🏻 The best part is, you can use it the same way as honey - try adding it to your applesauce or yogurt, or adding it as a “dip” for pancakes like our son loves to do! Let’s be honest - he’d drink it straight from the bottle if I let him! 😋 #nontoxichome#matys

Well, I just went outside in the beautiful Colorado morning air to catch my breathe before packing, and turns out that was a terrible idea. The reality of this move is hitting and we fly in 10 days. 😭😭😭
For each season there are joys and while I can’t know the future, I will hang on to these magical moments of my Littles running around with mountain backgrounds and balloons. Plus, this was the same place that David and I announced our rainbow baby’s due date after multiple miscarriages and IVF. Dreams have been announced and celebrated here. ✨✨✨
So back to packing with me...and coping...and dreaming.
P.S. @tinytotskids has these matching whimsical outfits in their small shop for this spring 💐, and they are so soft and playful!
P.S.S. Don’t miss Monday’s Four Favorite Things blog post linked in my bio. 🙌🏼

Today I took an admin day. I unpacked our bags from our weekend trip, tidied up the house, did some laundry, meditated, answered a few emails and looked at the month ahead. For the first time in a long time I made space to organize and get clear on my intention for the week and month ahead. This is a big break from the way I have been operating since opening Inner Light, aka running at breakneck speed. If I pause, it’s just to catch my breath briefly, then I keep on going. But this time is different. This time I’m stopping and not going anywhere fast. It’s my intention for this April - and life in general - to slow down. To say no to others and yes to myself. To make time to heal from the fatigue I have been experiencing. To create space for clarity to come through about how to best create ongoing balance in my life, between purpose and motherhood. To embrace being and the truth that being is enough, that I am enough, for who I am not what I do or achieve. So I looked at my calendar and decided this month I’ll indulge in rest. I booked a few healers (everything from acupuncture, breathwork and shamanic work to a serious lyme doc) - therefore creating physical space for healing in my calendar and life. Up next is creating time to be my own healer with a more consistent simple self care practices (baths, journal, nature). I can already feel the healing magic that the intention of a month of less, of rest and of being is working on my soul.
