My hope is that we always remember they rode on their dad’s shoulders, Max constantly covering Gareth’s eyes. My hope is they remember the laughter, the playing, the security in this place, our home, so they always feel safe when they come back here. Back to us.
I don’t know if he was more nervous, or me. I am such a hopeless romantic and everything about this thoughtful proposal made me fight back tears as it was unfolding before me. Morgan has to be the most special girl for Zach’s elaborate proposal that went down at @coldstonecreameryy, the location of their very first date
“If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.” -Maya Angelou. Around the dinner table is where so much life together happens for our family these days. I’m trying to capture more of it, knowing that it’s always changing, fleeting and somewhat precious to me. It’s messy and imperfect and often rushed, but still it’s a touchstone of most nights at home. And it’s hard and important work to me in making our home and family culture. I’m so fascinated with how families all do life differently. Tell me about what dinner looks like at your house- what do you love or loathe about dinner time? I will say it’s gotten much easier as my kids have gotten older and are and are able to help- I enjoy it so much more! But as you can see from the look on my face here it can, of course, be very trying. Oh and check out our new blog on @shamoftheperfect . Check out the talented @erika.n.roa and follow the circle.

Got some pesty problems? Grab some dōTERRA peppermint oil and some cotton pads and pop a few drops on each and pop them around the home. Little critters don’t like peppermint and will be deterred by the smell. Oh and it makes your house smell sooo goood! 💦💦💦
craving the season of fresh flowers, fresh vegetables and that warm spring air. I try not to grow discontent in each season but as my seedlings start to burst forth inside our home it’s hard to now grow even just slightly anxious 🌿
My little ray of sunshine had her last jabs for a while today woohoo. She was this happy earlier today but has just spent the past hour crying nonstop before falling asleep in my arms. Life can be tough when you’re 4 months ❤️
I’ve been a bit quiet lately on the work admin front, with a personal life running at 13 out of 10, and have just realised I still have space for another SYDNEY sess on the weekend! Sat or Sun Arvo (preferably Saturday) are still available. This year is getting busier and more wonderful by the minute, don’t let another year slip by with those family photos!!! DM or link to my website in profile. ❤️❤️❤️.
Just some kids with crazy hair enjoying the sunshine on their faces and sand between their toes. 🌞🙌🏻
Thanks to my dear travel friend, the stroller with a gorillapod attached to the handlebar for the photo. 😅😂
All the Monday feels going on here today. Entirely caused by the snow and ice. After a treacherous walk to and from school this morning we somehow made it home without anyone falling over.... until we got right outside the front door about the get back in the warm. And Trixie fell flat on her face. 🙈 (I laughed.... bad mum!)
So the rest of the day has been spent relaxing on the sofa dreaming of warmer days.
mess// “we make a mess mom cleans it up” sounds like the reg around here 🤦🏻♀️. Not caring at this moment cuz I’m over here trying to figure out how to fit into their new @woolydoodle lounj gear. Anyone else super jealous of their kids closet or am i the only one 🙋🏻♀️?!
Smiling despite my sore back, dishes in the sink, unswept floor, laundry to be folded, fridge to clean, and clutter to pick up. Why? I have the most perfect boy sleeping upstairs. Motherhood, what a gift you are. Enjoy your Monday, my loves. And be thankful for your precious babes. #monday#thoughts#selfie
And just like that we are swinging into a new week #happymonday 🎪 || Proud mama moment here. At first I was filled with regret forcing A to join @mygymfun and participate. She would spend the majority of the class either saying “no” to activities or hanging out by the basketball station to play with the balls the whole time. (What a waste right?) Then two months into it, something magically switched. She started being more open to trying the different stations and now asks to go to MyGym all the time! I really think it has helped boost her confidence in trying new things. Now if only they allowed more than one class per week 🤔....
