“I suoi occhi e quel suo sguardo possono raccontare così tanto senza bisogno di nemmeno una parola e solo dopo averli visti e capiti e amati ho compreso cosa volesse dire quando ogni volta mi diceva che nel silenzio si può benissimo trovare la pace, che per comunicare non c’è sempre bisogno di parlare, che certe cose vanno capite solo guardandosi”

So. I finally felt ready to share this, well, kinda.......In July we found out we were expecting our 4th baby. Yay! We were all SO excited, I fell in love with my baby instantly, and couldn’t wait for my belly to grow with my baby. All my plans started changing, all my thoughts included this little baby. My daily routines changed too, I ditched coffee & wine, switched up my yoga routine & started taking my prenatals. I soon started feeling tired & sick, the usual first trimester meh, as I have on all my previous. Of course, I had to carry on being a mother of 3, work long days & thrown into the mix we were moving house. 💥 But shhhhhh don’t tell anyone till you’re 3 months, this is soooo hard cause it’s all you can think about! Right!? And if you don’t stick to that rule, it can be, “oh, you’re ONLY 6/7/8/9/10 weeks?” As if that somehow makes you any less pregnant. It’s like we gotta keep this big massive thing that’s happening in our lives a secret, incase the dreaded occurs, a miscarriage. And it did, and this time, it happened to me. I'm one of the lucky ones, I had 3 healthy pregnancies previously, and for that I’m so grateful. This time though, I had a missed miscarriage discovered just shy of 9 weeks. I cried, big, heavy fat tears that day, my heart ached so very deeply for this little baby I’d lost & very much loved. I felt like I’d failed somehow, I wished it wasn’t true, but there it was on the screen, my baby with no heartbeat.........I personally really wanted to avoid intervention, so I decided to give my body some time. I journaled a LOT that week, I talked to my baby and asked it to let me go with love and holding the tiny swell of my belly, I told my baby I was letting it go with love too. A few long days later, the bleeding started. It’s a bleed like no other. It’s so much MORE than a bleed physically & emotionally. I didn’t know what to expect, it’s not really talked about. I had to carry on working. My job isn’t the kinda job you can just let people down on. No one knew what was actually going on for me, why I was fighting back tears, or why my back and hips ached so much standing was a struggle. (Continued in comments)

Gracenote Coffee. One of the best shots of espresso I've ever tasted - consistently every single time 👌
This Lincoln street cafe is their only brick and mortar location. A true gem hidden between Downtown and Chinatown.

Hi, lovelies👋🏼 I thought I’d take a moment to introduce myself...since I’m usually quietly drinking coffee and slaying vintage behind the scenes. I’m Carrie, owner of Soleil. Not a fan of selfies, but really a fan of morning light that hides fine lines, while the hubs scrapes the windows😉 I love coffee, good food and a good book. I’m an extroverted introvert, which I find really confuses people😜...but it basically means that I sincerely count you as friends, but if we lived next door, I’d get really tired😂 I love pups, animals of all kinds really, a good laugh, my best friend/hubs, the belief that the little things in life are really the biggest things, and kindness. I like back roads in the springtime with country music, believe that it matters more who you are to the little guy when no one is watching, and that every day we have a chance to show compassion to the world around us in our own little world. INFJ So please, stop by and say hey and tell me your Myers Briggs, because I’m really into that😊
The countdown is on to the Holiday Bazaar! ✨ December 15th join us and @souwester for local artisans of the north coast selling their magic for the holidays. Some teasers of who’s goin to be there... (top to bottom) @votivedesigns , @wheelerbagco , @audreylovesdirt
The snow is all gone but still thankful for the sweet memories we made. Henry really likes things to be tidy (sometimes). He loves to clean up spills so when he saw the snow on the ground he kept pointing and saying “yuck!” Of course he loved it but at first he wasn’t so sure of the mess it had made. Something I never want to forget. ✨
Been busy this gloomy weekend making Poms and prepping for a mobile project. If you or anyone you know is looking for a handmade gift for the holidays shoot me a DM and send them my way. I’ll be adding some finished photos this week and have these ready to ship soon 🧶🍄

Thanksgiving hasn’t always been an easy time for me. Mirrors, large amounts of food and conversations about “appropriate” amounts to eat, or “too much” eating brings back harder past times with food. I’m forever learning to accept food, and accept its relationship with my body. Every year is getting easier and I’m spending this week treating myself and praising myself for it. Shout out to all you others out there fighting those inner demons no matter what they are, you’re stronger than anything they have to say. #eatingdisorderrecovery

And yet the storm is coming. /No sun, no Milky Way, no stars. /And from the boat won’t help no running. /You lost the moment for the end and start
Based on the “Orange
Marmalade ” (1990) by Susan Avis Murphy
По мотивам "Апельсинового мармелада " (1990)Сьюзан Авис Мерфи
Сьюзан - художник из Америки, занимается акварельной живописью более 35 лет.
Предпочитает зеркальную и немного размытую манеру написания, благодаря которому складывается впечатление, что это не картина, а фотография.
Эти тосты с апельсиновым мармеладом настолько реальны, что их так и хочется съесть.
Интересный факт: Сьюзан ведет свой обучающий канал по акварели на YouTube, так что у желающих есть возможность поучиться у талантливой художницы онлайн.

...a sunset over the pods...
🇬🇧Yesterday, while I was walking around Tower Bridge, I couldn’t resist to make a little detour by the latest Instagram sensation @coppaclub just to see it with my own eyes. I couldn’t help but asking how long in advance I should book to get access to a pod...and well, they are fully booked for the next couple of months! See you in 2019 @coppaclub !😆
🇫🇷Hier, alors que je me baladais du côté de Tower Bridge, je n’ai pas pu résister à faire un petit détour du côté de la dernière sensation Instagram @coppaclub juste histoire de jeter un œil! J’ai quand même demandé combien de temps à l’avance il fallait que je réserve pour avoir accès à une des capsules, et bien, je vais devoir être patient: Deux bons mois d’attente! On se voit donc en 2019 @coppaclub! 😆
Sweater or no sweater. That is the question. Slightly shallow post but I’m incredibly indecisive this morning. We are off the the Hunter Disney event at Yorkdale shortly and I can’t for the life of me figure out what to wear 😭😭😭 #ootd#sunday
