With an extreme cold warming today (-37 C) we had to bring outside in for the littlest one. .
She loved it but cried every few minutes after sticking her hands deep into the bowl. 💔
My mom used to do this and was the one who reminded me of it when Z was little. .
What are your tricks for surviving the coldest days and making them fun? ❄️
Don’t mess with mama 👊🏽

Nanny day and cousin time 💕 It was beautiful out, so even though I was really tired we went wandering down by the river. Spent time throwing stones, gathering sticks, and watching the water go by. We saw some friends biking on the path and stopped to chat a minute in the sun. Days haven’t been easy lately physically or emotionally, but I’m doing my best and I’m looking for the good. Today, it was this.
Somehow it's Monday but feels like a Sunday?....I feel like the last day of the weekend is for all the necessary external preparations [swipe bc I know you feel me!]
But I have serious question for you. Do you feel 100% totally and completely satisfied after everything is checked off and you've accomplished everything on your list? (Kk, asking for a friend!) 😉
Is your self-worth validated by your accomplishments? Mine was.🙋♀️ All the Gary V podcasts, extra long workouts, food prep and skincare bliss couldn't satiate that deep vacuum-like hole; it's called ego.
When the lights go out, ever wonder why even after a long successful day you're still "hungry" for more? Bc the human heart is like a vacuum. It's tendency is to want more and and more and more... and it's insatiable, unrelenting appetite will stop at nothing!
There is only ONE thing made to fill that space. God. #truthbomb
I've had to teach myself the daily practice of being still (which does not come easy to me), and getting past my ego, by creating a place where I can invite God in and speak to my heart. This is possible through surrender, humility and gratitude.
In this, there is so much. #selfcaresunday#gobeyondyourself#innerlife

When you receive good news, there’s no better way to celebrate than having a yummy 🍦! I’m so proud of you my love! Keep up your good work! I’m excited about this next chapter. #newjob#byebyemtl
The OG beauty tool we can’t live without. They are low-tech, no batteries necessary, and multi task like a gem. They apply and blend product. They create a greater sense of connection through touch. They are travel friendly, eco conscious, and FREE to use!!!
But in all seriousness, how many blenders, sponges, and brushes do we really need? After cleaning out my beauty stash this weekend, I realized how easily it is to mindlessly consume beauty products and beauty tools. How many sponges, cotton rounds and sheet masks I had sent to the landfill in 2018? (More than I feel comfortable with) This year I would like to do better. •••
There are plenty of conversations happening about the ingredients in our products, but we also need to consider the impact our self-care habits potentially have on the planet. •••
I’m not an expert in this field so if you have some favourite tips to share about how you’ve simplified your care practices, or have noticed ways to reduce waste, please share!! #slowwellness#OGbeautyblender#skintools
Sometimes when we have a hard day, all we need is a little adventure or a little fresh air (and a few snacks) to turn it around. And I know that this probably won’t last forever, that as they get older, it will only get harder, more complex, more nuanced. But at least for now, I will hold onto these simpler things.

Ten weeks already with you 💙🦞
The happiest little morning person, You are such a settled smiley baby who likes to chill on the playmat for long stretches and chat/coo to anyone who talks in your vicinity. You love showers and even just the sound of a shower running instantly has you in bliss. You love being sung to, taking everything in around you and being part of the action.
You are not a fan of quiet rooms and you really don’t like waiting for your milk.
We love you so much 💙 #tenweeksold#timeflies#dontgrowup#fullhandsfullerheart

I was listening to the radio the other day and a song came on with the lyrics “You know some days you feel so good in your own skin. But it's okay if you wanna change the body that you came in. Cause you look greatest when you feel like a damn queen.” ✨
And it brought me back to when I first started sharing my story and I would constantly get “you look beautiful no matter what” or “gorgeous at any size” and you know what. You’re damn right! We are all beautiful beings, but YOU know when you just don’t FEEL good in your own skin. ✨
That was me friends. I was uncomfortable, and unhealthy. I had so many problems with my health that I honestly didn’t talk about because it was embarrassing. ✨
So fast forward to now, and although I’m still on my health journey, I am feeling SO good! And that means more to me than any shape or size that I might wear. ✨
That’s why I share. I am speaking to the ones who just don’t feel good anymore. I’m here for you friend, I will support you and encourage you along the way!

Gangs all in! The boys have started to take interest in selecting their own clothes! Wes chose jammies, Nico initially chose shorts, then quickly realized how chilly it was and changed 😂! #learnbydoing PS I can not get over how big they look here.

Empezando la semana con la esperanza de pasar unos días fríos y grises: pasé una mañana acostada en cama con un libro mientras escuchaba el viento aullar. Luego paseamos lentamente por el parque, respirando todo ese maravilloso verano fresco y verde ¿adónde te llevarán estos días?

Just a pretty little hutch scene. ✨ This is one of my favorite pieces in the house. Probably because it's one of the only spaces in the house that are ever organized and untouched by children. 😉

Here’s a pic from last weekend when she played in the snow for her first and probably final time (lasting all of 10 minutes). Today, we walked outside and she started crying and ran back inside saying, “it’s too cold!” This girl needs a beach, stat.
And yes, I know she needs a real snowsuit 🤦🏻♀️

Every once and a while I’ll bring out a q+a from Pinterest because after 6 years together sometimes there isn’t anything new to talk about. Yesterday I asked Micahel to describe his perfect day and he replied, “golf.” When I described mine it took 5 minutes 🤣coffee, spa, morning walk on the beach, kayak, sushi, going to the movies... I guess you’d have to know him for this to be funny. He kept giving me one word answers which defeated the purpose. Everyday spent is perfect simply because we are doing life together and that’s really all that matters. That may sound cheesy but it’s the truth. 💛 I love being married to my best friend.
“...but whatever you - do you have to keep moving forward." MLK⠀
I woke up this am in a fickle mood. Which I HATE. And to top it off my loving & adventurous husband had the genius idea to go & explore the New England winter scenery. While I argued that there was a wind chill advisory and below freezing temps- he simply told me to put on some long johns, bundle up & let’s getting going. ⠀
My husband’s not so subtle, but sweet (and much needed) attempt was to keep me moving. A change in scenery to shift my focus and change my perspective. ⠀
Whether you’re having a fickle Monday like me or every is right as rain, may this be an encouraging reminder to keep moving forward.

I am working on being more in the moment. I find that by taking pictures and painting it really helps me to slow down and take in all the tiny details that I would otherwise not even notice #arttherapy

This little guy tossed and turned all night and early this morning. 😞 Thankfully he slept a little bit more after awhile, and seems to be in a pretty good mood considering.
I'm so ready for warmer weather, and all these small illnesses to go away. 😩
It's -22°C outside and I wish I could say there's no way I'm going out in that but tragically adulthood doesn't work like that. Our Winter has been weirdly Autumn like this year so it's a shock to face these temperatures and remember 9°C/47°F is not actually normal in January. How do you deal with harsh cold temperatures? I saw videos of people snowboarding in Montreal streets and I really wish I saw the brightside of this miserable weather like they did.
The only thing getting me through this day is lots of coffee and sweets and Book Podcasts like Getting Lit, Literary Disco, Reading Women, and Ink to Film. Do you listen to Book Podcasts? If so, what are some of your favourites? I'm looking forward to ending this day with a really hot long bath with soothing essential oils and endless cups of hot chocolate. I really hope tomorrow is a little kinder than today.
Happy Monday lovelies, I hope you're having a great day 💕 #hygge#onthetable#momentsofmine#culturetripbooks#currentlyreading

Не всі варті наших толерантних манер і доброго ставлення, декому часом дуже хочеться відповісти так, щоб більше тебе не зачіпали. Ніколи. Jamais de la vie. І часом дуже хочеться наплювати на добре виховання, лекції з етикету і те, що мама казала так не робити. І байдуже хто що собі подумає.
Зрештою, твоє психічне здоров`я набагато важливіше, ніж страх, що тебе не зрозуміють чи образяться. Те, що всі всіх люблять - велика брехня. Настільки велика, що часом з-під неї вже й людяності і відчуття оточуючими меж дозволеного не видно.
