It's great to stay motivated and the lovely ladies in the #sparkleonmama Facebook group keep me going. With theirs and @michellereevescoaching encouragement I've made another thing. And I love it! ❤️
I've been working on crafts lately and took the first steps to creating something. Here's my first one 😁❤️
What would your perfect week look like? Hot Coffee? ☕️ Chat with friends? 😀 Peace and quiet? 🎉 Over on the blog today I'm revealing what my perfect week would look like. Come say hi and tell me about yours.
Got a delivery today which means I can start putting ideas and things together. 😁🎉
We are back home taking LP for another bike ride. I can't believe how fast he's picked it up. I'm loving the sunshine and clear blue skies today and I'm looking forward to seeing my mum and dad later. 😁
Here's just one of the (many!) drinks we enjoyed at @bungabungaldn last week. Old fashioned - because we love bourbon. Not only was it tasty but we totally wanted more too! Wish I could go back next week... Really must get babysitters sorted. 😉
Writing anything when you love creative writing is wonderful but writing that story that you've held inside is the most wonderful feeling in the world. Let it out peeps!
The Hubby and I stayed at @hubhotels last week so we could go to Bunga Bunga. Not only was it a lovely room but I decided if I was to stay in London again, say for #BML17 (!), then I'd definitely want to stay here! Awesome rooms, comfortable bed, couldn't ask for anything more. Check out my vlog over on Youtube: https://youtu.be/LjXZe0Ge560 😄
Some people are wise before their years, others it takes years to acquire, but I think really it's about understanding life. And the only way to understand it is to live it!
Wish the weather would clear up so I can wear my fabulous comfy sandals from @jdwfashion again. All this rain is annoying, it *is* supposed to be summer right?
What a quote! It is SO right, right? When you learn about something and truly understand it is like lighting a fire within. If it's something you truly care about you are fired up and want to learn more. You can get passionate about things when you learn more. Have you lit your fire yet?
This tiny little guy was sitting on top of our garden bin when we were tidying the garden around the pool. I couldn't help myself, I had to snap a photo. Isn't he just so cute?!
Your past may be dark, you may think that it has ruined your life and you can never get away from it. But you can. YOU can make the changes, YOU can change your attitude. Your past is just that, in the past. It does not need to ruin your present or future. Take hold of your life now.
I walk past these gorgeous flowers every day when we take LP out on his bike. They're so vibrant and colourful I smile every time I see them. I have no idea what they are but they're gorgeous. 😍
If we teach our children about equality they will live in a world where all are equal. I would give anything for that. I teach my boys that everyone is equal, boys and girls, different races. We all deserve to live in a world where we are equal.
Due to the Hubby having an issue with his feet we've taken far too long to teach LP to ride his bike. This week we've made a point of going to Halfords to buy stabilisers and get him out on his bike. He's only been at it a few days and he's making great progress. Yay. My only issue is as soon as he can ride he'll want to ride his bike to school! 🙈
It's one thing to believe in yourself, it's completely another to know that you need to learn. I've always loved learning and am willing to see when I can't do something or need to learn. I admit I don't know everything, there's so much I don't know. Like how to be wise! 😉
The boys love visiting @altontowers and this year we have our Melin Annual Passes so we'll visit lots of times. Here they're about to walk at the side of the lake on their own, it's a little bit of freedom. They know the place so well now that I'm happy to let them do this. :)
I often question myself and think I'm not good enough when actually I know exactly what I'm doing. I am being me and only I can know me right? I love this quote because it speaks to me. I need to trust myself more, I need to believe in myself. It is time.
This is the kind of photo I get of BP these days. He saw me with my phone and grabbed a balloon before I could snap a photo of him. Grr. 😂 We were at a family gathering enjoying being with each other, but I guess a photo is just not on the cards!
I never read the Harry Potter books but I do love this quote. No matter what you're going through there will be something to bring light into your life. You just have to look for it. Turn the light on. 😉
I don't know if these are orchids or some other flower but they're dotted all over the place at @altontowers. I noticed them as LP and I were walking around a few days ago when we visited. They look gorgeous don't they?
This is so true. I've learned, thanks to @michellereevescoaching that it's our thoughts about things that make them good or bad not the things themselves. When your child knocks food on the floor that's bad because you'll have to clean it up. But it's the thinking about having to clean it up that makes it bad, not the act itself. I'm loving this quote right now. So wise.
As you know we love our lego and the Disney Castle was probably our best build EVER! With Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and others watching over the build it was so much fun and I can't wait to build it again. Do check out my post: http://www.morganprince.com/2017/07/building-lego-disney-castle-71040.html
Sometimes it's not always possible but I try to laugh every day. Laughter releases endorphins and ultimately makes you feel better, so why would you not want to laugh every day? My boys are usually the ones to make me laugh, although the Hubby is pretty good at it too. What makes you laugh?
For the first day of the holidays I decided to treat my boys to a few sweet things for breakfast. I don't do these things often but seeing as it's the holidays I thought it would be a lovely treat. Their squeals of excitement made me smile. 😁
It took me a long time to realise I had a voice, and that I could use that voice. No matter what you've been through or what you believe is stopping you, don't give up your power!
Let the indulgence begin! 😝I'm about to dig into this @haagendazsuk summer berries and cream ice cream. I'm loving the holidays so far! 😝
I am totally rocking my @georgeatasda pjs tonight. Chilling after a dip in the pool. It may only be Tuesday but it feels like Friday. Bring on the holidays! 😝✨🌸
