It's a doozy 👌🏾
¡Les tengo una confesión! 🙊⬇
Me encanta esta época del año: las luces, los regalos, la comida rica, el tiempo con familia y amigos, pero el tráfico y el alboroto de la gente de aquí para allá ya me tienen ejercitando la paciencia 😂 Y me pongo a pensar: ¿En esto se ha convertido la Navidad? ¿Por qué no nos tomamos un momento y recordamos lo que realmente significa? El mejor regalo Dios ya lo trajo! Y es para recordarlo todos los días: ¡Jesús! .
Ahora, si me preguntas: ¿En que crees tú?
Creo en nuestro Dios, el Padre y en Su Hijo Cristo, el Rey
Creo en el Espíritu Santo. Dios, tres en uno es
Creo que resucitaste, que nos levantarás
Creo en el Nombre de Jesucristo. ¡Creo en ti, Jesús!
¡Creo que tú vivo estás!
¡Creo que Jesús es el Señor!🌠
Who here is starting to think about their Christmas table decor? It really doesn't have to be complicated or difficult. Some of the simplest ideas are sometimes the prettiest. Check this out for instance: simple white fabric napkin with a twig of rosemary tied to it with some twine. Lovely! ✨🌱
Add a plain table runner, some greenery, some oranges or mandarines and a few candles down the middle of the table and Bob's your uncle! 🍊🕯🌲
Murder at Mardi Gras was a success! We didn’t guess the murderer, but we had fun. Stay tuned for more pics of everyone’s outfits and the decorations! 💕💕

My early morning companions - coffee & a book. We had howling wind and pelting rain last night and I think my brain was trying to keep up with the weather outside because the worries were howling around inside my head too.
So I'm treating myself to an early morning reading session. I've been wanting to read When Breath Becomes Air for a while now and it just came through on my library hold. It is so very beautifully written, I want to slow down and savour the words. I'm going to be thinking about this one for a long time.
Will has been sick all week, so we had to delay decorating our perfectly imperfect tree until last night. The kids were all too excited to start digging into the ornaments as soon as the bag was opened.
Gratitude for the here and now and all that is yet to come! 🌞🌴🌴🌴
3530 || Three thousand five hundred and thirty photos. This is the number that fills an album named “The 18 Inch Journey 2017.” A month ago today 60 days came to close. Tonight I choose to slow down in wonder and remember those moments, enjoying the gift of photography. These are the moments forever etched into my story.
To be vulnerable is not to be weak. To be vulnerable, is to be BRAVE! Brave enough to listen to your inner guidance, to live your truth, and simply be you - without giving a feck about what anyone else thinks. Today I choose to be vulnerable. Will you?
Let’s take this week on like a bawse!
It’s all happening for us... let’s embrace it!

It's the most wonderful time of the year.. 🎶❄️ what are you dreaming of this holiday season?
I’ve been working hard at re-wiring my sleep schedule 😴 I’ve never felt better than going to sleep at 9pm and waking up at 5am during yoga teacher training. The goal is to get back to that! I’ve struggled with insomnia off and on for 10 years, so it’s safe to say sleep is pretty important to me. 💖
Our sleep health is an integral part of our mental and physical health. I highly, highly believe it making it a priority! 💘 💤
Inner peace is the fruit of the spirit. 🙏🏼
So I’ve sort of failed at my Christmas season duties... I haven’t hung any garland, I’ve baked a total of 0 cookies, and I haven’t started my Christmas shopping yet... SOS.
I love unpacking my Christmas treasures, they all tell a story and have a special place in my heart.
My collection if Nativity scenes my just be my favourite.
This first one is from my first Christmas living with Tommi 15 years ago. I think they were meant to be tiny tree ornaments but I cut the string off.
The Little People are from Anaya's first Christmas. They get played with every year. We've lost one of the wise men and for a few years we had lost baby Jesus. I'll never forget when Eva found him she exclaimed in delight "I've found Jesus!". The Babushka Joseph is from last Christmas. I have a thing for Babushka's and have 5 sets. 3 Christmas, 1 Easter and a set of bears. My mum and I have always loved Babushka's but for a long time never owned any. One Christmas I spent months searching for a true Matryoshka Babushka, made in Russia not China. Back before everything was available online. At the shops a lady overhead me talking to the girls about trying to find them, she told me about a little gift shop that had real Russian nesting dolls. My mum loved them.
We've been talking about the wise men and their gifts for baby Jesus. Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. Eva laughed and said did baby Jesus get essential oils for his birthday!? Truth is, the wise men gave the Christ child gold, frankincense, and myrrh resins. Essential oils as we know them didn’t exist back then. Simply put, the essential oils that we all love and use today require highly advanced distillation techniques that weren’t yet invented.
Do you have any special Christmas treasure collections? I'd love to hear your stories.
there's someone struggling right now with the very thing He delivered you from. share your story+share His hope✨
Finally reading the advent reading for the first week. The theme for the first week is HOPE and don’t we all need some? When we look around at the world and if I am honest when I look at my own heart and my own propensity to selfishness. What a beacon of hope that we do not have to save ourselves, we can choose to turn our faces towards this Christmas season and find Jesus come as the hope that we all need. “Turn us again to yourself, O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies. Make your face shine down upon us. Only then will we be saved.”
So long Tokyo, you have been good to us ✨
Daddy daughter time in the water. Always an enjoyable experience. Hope we can keep a pool as part of our life when we move on from Penang.
Baking on the schedule this weekend, not because I have to but because I want to. There is a big difference. ⠀
A few years ago I was in bed so sick right before Christmas and ended up missing all the festivities. I'm the baker of the family and every year friends and family would get all kinds of sweet confections. I was so upset that my lovely hubby made some Christmas treats to try and ease my pain. He did a great job and I was so grateful to have such a lovely man in my life. ⠀
That New Year's was the year that I re-evaluated things. I knew things had to change. I couldn't keep running myself ragged to please others. I was destroying myself in the process. ⠀
The following Christmas I didn't bake a thing. I thought everyone would be disappointed...but they weren't! I created this giant monster that needed everyone to get a variety of baked goods and I wasn't enjoying the process anymore. It was just this huge task that had to be done. ⠀
Removing the baking task that year made way for more of the things I wanted to do in December. Things with my family, my girls, and my friends. This was also the year that my voice appeared. "I don't really want to do that". If it wasn't an instant...HELL YES, it was a no, and that was ok. Nothing bad ever happened to me saying no. ⠀
Since then, my joy of baking has returned and I do some of my families favorites but only enough for family gatherings and get togethers with friends. ⠀
So now I ask you....is there anything that you're doing that you really don't want to be? If the answer is yes, then check out my holiday workbook (link in bio). This could be the year you change things up 💜
Watching his first snowfall (or at least one that he’s aware of!) ❄️☃️
This is my baby. He’s 20 months old and as clever, kind, and cheeky as they come. I’m completely obsessed with everything about him.
I’ve always been fierce, but since becoming his mama, I’ve turned into a warrior. Do him wrong and hell’s fire and brimstone will seem a better option compared to what I’ll bring down. Creating space for him to thrive in all his glory has become my passion.
Being his mama is one of the highest honors of my life, and every time he breathes I can’t contain my utter joy. Weston, I’ll fiercely love and fight for you no matter what, forever.♥️
Fall in Love with You.
You are lovable
“You were born to be loved, cherished, and adored.
You were born to be loved, cherished, and adored.
You were born to be loved, cherished, and adored.
You don’t exactly know where air or water come from, but you totally believe they are there for you. As a human being, you know that air and water are part of your divine inheritance. No matter what mistakes you have made in the past, you are still going to wake up every day and have access to air and water. The same is true for love. It’s there for you. It’s always been there for you. You just need to remember the love that you are, and once you do, the Universe will bring you more of it. In other words, there is nothing for you to do; there is only a way for you to be. Be the loving person you are; live in the knowingness that you are [deserving of love]”
