connecting - Lately I've fallen into the habit of retreating to the kitchen to wash up as my beloved reads the bed time stories. Although its nice to come away from tucking them in to a tidy kitchen and swept floors, I have downed tools this week and snuggled up on the lounge next to my babies.
nourishing - I am quite frankly addicted to Tom Kha soup at the moment. I think I make "mmmm" sounds throughout the entire meal.
reading - When I need a little help to notice the sparks of beauty around me I always turn to Pia Jane Bijkerk's book, My Heart Wanders. Her tender way inspires me beyond words and has guided me gently back to a path of positivity. This world is full of so much beauty and sometimes we just need a little nudge to push aside the mundane and see it.
creating - Thrifted ladies' linen and corduroy pants have been cut into smaller versions for the little man. Dressing my babies as ethically and environmentally conscious as possible often involves some effort on my part. I can't say I mind at all.
nurturing - She is revelling in the written word and her blossoming knowledge of it. I am constantly helping her to sound out words and form the letter shapes. With the explosion of paperwork coming from her tiny desk it may be time to replace it with a more grown up version.
growing - I'm seriously contemplating beginning my bread making journey by growing our own sourdough starter. Nothing quite like jumping in the deep end to get things moving.
dreaming - We have all but completed the renovations on our home. We're thinking of selling up and doing it all over again and my mind is a delightful swirl of wall colours, bathroom tiles and room for chickens. Scrolling through my "pins" it is clearly apparent that I have a deep love of natural timber.
