“Doesn’t everybody sit around with strategically placed wine glasses and books of a particular interest, like this one: 36 hours to places we’ll never go?” (Husband) . “Yes, yes they do.” (Me) . And that, dear friends, is what we shall call a day date these days. Andrew snapping pics and reminding me of how silly all of this is... . So cheers to full wine glasses, pedicures, online shopping, hair appointments (I need one real bad 🙈) actual real out of house dates and lots and lots of Netflix. Which of those are on your list this weekend?
Oh baby, the places you’ll go✨ . Ever camped with a baby 🏕? We have and fun fact: at one point Andrew and I turned to each other and asked “Is this actually fun?” Well guess what, it was fun (enough) that we did it again and again and it’s pretty much been our go-to getaway method ever since. So we’ve got big plans for this summer and I’d love to hear your favourite camping spots (or non camping spots)... just take note, I love my own tent OR a five star resort but I do nothing in between 🤷♀️✨. #ihavethisthingforglamping
You guys were so curious about these 2️⃣ prints + I wish they meant something more. I wish they were vows, or love letters or better yet, the first words we said out loud when we first became parents. But we just used the normal vows, we don’t write love letters and all I remember from right after our daughters were born, was the unbelievable shattering of my heart when they placed one twin and then the next on my chest. So I’m open to suggestions. Because right now friends, it’s a Christmas carol. That’s right, a quick pre Christmas Etsy find printed at staples for less than 10 bucks. What would you hang for all to see in a room that you live in?💫 (Or should I just make another giant weaving and hang it there instead ?🤷♀️).
Nothing like a fur baby in a sling to inspire a good day 💫 (or what I like to refer to as the last day of semi sanity before the full effects of the time change + March break sink in 🙈). . Did you do a preemptive bedtime change or are you winging it like we are 😴🤞🏻? #catwearing #mywildbird
Somebody send for spring 🌸🌞. Cabin fever is at an all time high (for all of us 🐈🙈). Who else is swimsuit shopping from the couch tonight)?
The days following Ben’s birth were very hard emotionally for me. I wanted not only to freeze time, but to reverse it. I loved giving birth to him. I wanted to do it again. The mere suggestion in my mind that I wouldn’t get to, was enough to tip me over the edge. . Then I went to see my midwife. I told her how awful and sad and emotional I felt over wanting to have more babies and *most likely never being able to again. . “I still feel that way.” She told me. “It never goes away.” . And maybe some would then fall further into despair, but for me it was a comfort. And that is what I needed. . Births, school changes, anxiety, isolation, child rearing, marriage, sex - it’s motherhood + we’re in the thick of it, so let’s celebrate women who are there for us when we don’t even know we need it 🙌 . (ps did you feel like this postpartum 💛)? #happyiwd #postpartumjourney
My new favourite hobby is exercising so hard that my abs cry out every time I move. Okay I’m being a tad dramatic, but seriously, I’ve done a combo of Kayla + kundalini yoga for three days in a row and I feel like a whole new human. 🧘🏼♀️ What do you do for exercise? *Bonus points for ideas that can be done at home, while this guy naps.
Happy seven months to you my little sweetie 💓 I am equal parts in awe of how big you are getting + horrified that it’s now been more than half a year since we welcomed you in this very living room. Thank you for making me one very happy #boymom💙 #sevenmonthsyoung
Families with 3️⃣ kids are crazy.... I mean you’re officially outnumbered 🙈. (What I used to say). I now realize that with a little creativity + a lot of helping hands, three not only seems doable, but sometimes we can swing a few more 😉. #allfivefromtheside
Super hot date tonight involving 3 of my favourite things: new girl on Netflix, home brew wine + cuddling on the couch while reading parenting books 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♂️. What has happened to my life 🙈... kidding, I love this version of our life right now (well 99 percent of it anyways). These baby days don’t last forever. What are your hot date plans? Do they involve actually leaving the house? #marriedlifewithkids
