we have been having the most gorgeous autumn days here. it's this picturesque new england autumn that makes me say YES! to living here and push away my longing for the australian bush, for now at least - i won't even let myself think ahead to winter months!
after coming back from squam i've noticed i'm appreciating little moments more than ever, and allowing slowness and stillness - something i used to practice in my days that has since been replaced with craze-mess-stress-tightlyknottedunhappymumma. i'm trying to be more gentle with myself and with these three little beauties of mine.
i'm also noticing that...
i love to be in this space (blog), but am unsure of words, or what to share
making things by hand (crochet, needle felting) feels really good right now instead of a sewing machine
sitting in the sunshine in uggboots watching my boy ride his bike makes me and him so happy
my kids are growing up way too quickly and i'm longing for them to stay little
taking my time to clean the kitchen (with good music) and cook food during the day without such a rush really makes a difference to our family happiness!
i need to spend time outside every.single.day
