i wonder if one day you'll get home with a tattoo & try to hide it. Sigh. for now this is all i have to worry about.<3
sweet baby girl loves to selfie Sunday, doesn't get why he is called the elf on the self when he's hardly ever on a self & is not about doing her own laundry but loves the mystery that is the dryer. #6 months of her
when there isn't quite enough snow to head to the local sledding hill and your tiny human is just as happy letting mommy run through the woods pulling you, twisting and turning through the snow and up and down the little embankments it's a total win win : cardio blast for mommy and all the smiles and giggles for my tiny human. 🙌🏼❄️❤️ . . . . #thesincerestoryteller #writeyouonmyheart #documentyourdays #magicofchildhood #childhoodeveryday #mynameismama #habitandhome #runwildmychild #beyond_motherhood #gatherandtend #enchantedchildhood #motherhoodinspired #littlebellows #celebrate_childhood #teammotherly #nestingly #wildandfreechildren #lovelywanderings #snaplovegrow #thelifestylecollective #honestmotherhood #motherhoodmoments #documentingmotherhood #wildandbravelittles #dearestviewfinder #pocket_sweetness #itsthemostwonderfultimeoftheyear #littlefierceones #the_sugar_jar #walkinginawinterwonderland
Here it is! This is the custom painting I couldn’t post because Dad commissioned it as an anniversary gift for Mom AND she’s an IG’r. So now that the party is over and gifts have been exchanged I have the “go ahead” to post this adorable family portrait of their 3 kids. Happy Anniversary!!
Thanks to Instagram Avery has some of the most adorable dolls on the planet, but one of her current favorites is my vintage Raggedy Ann, who you might have already met in my story highlights. Swipe left to see what she looked like many years ( decades) ago when she was a little less raggedy. Also, someone placed my baby self in a tree and stepped away to take a picture. Those carefree 1970s! #WHPclassic
In attempt to take a picture with the beautiful flowers my mom sent me, I became annoyed because of how puffy my eyes were from crying so much recently. The last few days have been some of the hardest. My life is crazy, and although this season is beautiful and special in so many ways, it’s also very difficult for similar as well as completely different reasons. I looked exhausted and weak which made me feel very insecure when I thought about posting one of these pictures for the internet world to see. That’s when I was struck with the brutal realization that my identity has never once been compromised or exploited. I get to choose who sees me and how they do so. I’m valuable for who I am in Christ, my skills, passions, and gifting not which part of me I can offer someone, let alone someone I don’t even know. To think this isn’t the case for so many breaks me to the core. It’s also the very reason I’ve chosen to participate in Dressember. I’d like to ask you to consider coming alongside my team and I as we join the fight against human trafficking. You can do so at the link in my bio. “I am only one, but I am still one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.” - Helen Keller
Christmas tradition! It's a chapter book, age 5+ or so? Usually we start ten days before Christmas, a chapter a night. But! we have a new Advent chapter book this year (stay tuned!) So tonight, this + fire + life is good.
That babe...those cheeks😍 thanks for sharing! @floating.feather.essentials
Can’t quite get enough of this. Every time the sun comes out, I’m all nooooooo because I know it’s going to make all of it melt, 💔😭. But for now, we continue to marvel in the beauty that is snow. #winterwonderland • • • • • #ourhousehold #habitatandhome #mytinyatlas #slowliving #theartofslowliving #livesimply #darlingmovement #thehappynow #kinfolk #verilymoment #seekthesimplicity #feelfreefeed #inspiremyinstagram #aquietstyle #mymindfulyear #inbeautyandchaos #thebloomforum #lovelywanderings #searchwandercollect

I’m starting him young 😍
We walked down the isles at Target kid free, and talked all about our desire to embrace minimalism. We made plans to put everything in boxes and live with just the essentials and maybe even downsize to a smaller home and save our pennies for more family adventures. Easier said than done… I know. And we may not even fully embrace minimalism but one thing I do know. . . . Our hearts long for something more than the here and now. Our hearts long for truth, for things that are eternal and for the thought of a life that’s stripped away from all of these “things” that take up our mental space and our time. Our hearts want Christ. Peace. Joy that can only be found in HIM. . . . The desire to become minimalists comes up in conversation during the few times Alex and I get to step back and regroup. So, all that to say that there are big plans for our family come January. A little scary but necessary! . . . . . . . . . #simplychildren #mytinymoments #our_everyday_moments #momtog #pixel_kids #dearphotographer #cameramama #candidchildhood #letthekids #littleandbrave #verilymoments #letthembelittle #petitjoys #lovelywanderings #motherhoodthroughinstagram #MagicofChildhood #ig_kids #ig_motherhood #motherhoodsimplified #motherhoodslens #treasuringlittlememories #jj_its_kids #siblinghoodlove #littlebellows #lbfilm #communityovercompetition #everydayfaithful #tilinsiders #wellwateredwomen

Oh Canada 🇨🇦⛸

Days 9 and 10 of #ourmagicalchristmasmoments ❄️ It’s been another wonderfully festive weekend for us, Christmas decorations, twinkling fairy lights, delicious food, family fun and glittery crafts 🎄 Now I’m looking forward to a couple of quiet-ish days before our big family getaway to Dorset next weekend!! How has your weekend been? Did you get the snow? ❤️ . . . #ourmagicallives #pinklinker #oem_shine #WHPclassic #christmaskids #my_magical_moments #illuminatechildhood #awakethelight #themagicofchristmas #themagicofchildhood #our_everday_moments #ourplayfulstyle #enchantedchildhood #watchthemlearn #lovelywanderings #letthembelittle #lovelifeoutside #ourwhimsicaldays #mytinytribe #littlefamiliesofig #flashesofdelight #outdoorsandhappy #pottyadventures #curiouslittleexplorers
‘‘Tis the season for sickies. And since she’s under the weather, Bear had to hold her baby for her while she watched her song show and ate nummies. 😂 her imagination is just blossoming and it’s so sweet!
Pour mes 28 ans (fêtés à de nombreuses reprises), j'ai été entourée des personnes qui comptent le plus pour moi. J'ai encore une fois été émue d'être entourée de personnes si bienveillantes, et j'ai parfois du mal à croire que j'ai le droit à autant d'amour. Pour mes 28 ans, j'ai même eu le droit à un gâteau à boobs & à paillettes ✨réalisé par ma superfragilisticicious @paillettesbaskets 😍 Et ces 29eme année s'annonce absolument IN-CROY-ABLE ! J'en profite pour dire un énorme MERCI à tous ceux ici qui m'ont envoyés de jolis mots !

So happy that this one got to see snow for the first time today, not much but more than last year and just enough to sledge down the grassy hill. I was in bed though after being up all night with Alf so I totally missed it 😭 she loved it!!
Good thing it snowed. My icy New England heart was starting to soften. ❄️🖤❄️
Soph (she's 3) took my photo the other day so I thought I'd share what is a very rare photo of me that isn't a selfie. It probably took me about ten minutes to get up from this picture 😂 but nice to let Soph get her own back and be the paparazzi for a bit ❤️
Poorly Alf today but they had a decent snuggle to make up for it ❤️❤️ so sad that Soph will miss her first ever school Christmas show tomorrow 😭😭 watched the Nativity film and balled my eyes out for the ending, wagghh!! Even though I know she will grump, not sing and probably stand with her arms folded, I feel a sad that she won't get to sing as she has practised so much and I'd love to see her up there ❤️❤️ we need to look after our beaters not though so tomorrow will be another snuggle day 🎄❤️
Phase one of dummy take down is complete! I figured I can’t go cold turkey on Christmas morning so I decide we phase the ‘no dummy’ idea in. After he fell asleep I took it off him and out of the room. He woke a couple of time and whinged for a second but fell back to sleep 👌🏻
With a 4.5yo and almost 3yo, my kids are starting to understand Christmas a little more. They love having the tree on and all the decorations. We’ve also started some new traditions this year! I love the holidays!!! . . . . . . . #thegallerycollective #childhoodmemories #dearestviewfinder #kidsforreal #MagicofChildhood #momtogs #pixel_kids #letthekids #mom_hub #jj_its_kids #ourweekendstories #theheartcaptured #the_cic #wildandbravelittles #childrenseemagic #the_sugar_jar #captured_treasures #littlepiecesofchildhood #RunWildMyChild #aoc_55 #pm_falala
The holidays have been a whirlwind so far, but there are places of pause every now and again, seconds that make me feel like it isn't passing me by more quickly than I can manage to hold onto. Seeing my boys explore together makes everything else slow down, and it's incredibly good for the heart. What helps you pause? // . . . . . . . #whpclassic #jj_forum_2103 #creativesontherise #lookslikefilm #aovportraits #click_vision #thingsiwanttorememeber #lovelywanderings #holdthemoments #bevisuallyinspired #sombresociety #moodyports #seekinspirecreate #untoldvisuals #runwildmychild #pocket_sweetness #myquietbeauty #galleryoflightfeature #momentsinmotherhood #theweekoninstagram #myeverydaymagic #littlepiecesofchildhood #adventuresofchildren #pocket_moody #portraits_mf #feelthefeelings #moodyports
I love watching the friendship between these two grow. Talitha is such a mama to Delilah but Delilah is shifting rapidly from baby to child and they're playing together more and more.
just some morning gazing
Yesterday I visited the Christmas markets in Exeter which was lovely. Today I’ve spent visiting family. How have you spent your Sunday?
It has been such a lovely advent Sunday ~ Everything was covered in white as we woke up and the children was so excited about it. We had the slowest morning in weeks and they opened their christmas secrets with smiles and stars in their eyes. We played in the snow and got all red in the cheeks. In the afternoon we baked gingerbread and soon the whole house was filled with that special spicy smell ~ My sweetie girl is all feverish and has been sleeping now and then, so calm as she never is. Her head in my lap watching Christmas cartoons. A day to put in the ♡ I hope you had a lovely 2nd Sunday of advent, dear friends ♡ . . . . #whpclassic #snartjul #peterleonmin #winterwonderland #advent #naturelovers #naturephotography #snowy #childhoodunplugged #uniteinmotherhood #kidsphotography #seekingthestars #bleachmyfilm #slowlivingforlife #norgefoto
The conversation I overheard the other day: Ben: I want to be a zombie when I grow up. Jax: No, Ben. Ben: Yeah I wanna be a zombie when I grow up! Jax: No, you can't be a zombie when you grow up! Ben: Why? Jax: Because, Ben. If you're a zombie then you WON'T be mommy's baby anymore.

This is the current set up. 🙈 #lydiaslittleworkzone #lydiaslittlehouse
A rare still quiet moment 🤫where we both stood calmly surveying the falling snow in the old churchyard. Followed swiftly after by peals of laughter from more children running around the corner with a huge snowball ready to throw!😬😅Classic childhood fun! #whpclassic

Hi, I'm Nicole! I don't think I've ever introduced myself here so it seems time. ❇ I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and it's still my home base, though I love to travel and have lived many places. For the last decade my day job has usually been farming, most recently as the veggie grower for a farm-to-table restaurant in Oregon. A job that has me outside all day with dirt on my hands is a good fit for me. ❇ I love the natural world and believe that teaching our little ones reverence and respect for nature, and a sense of environmental stewardship, is one of the most important things we can do. When I was a small child, the mere thought of elves and fairies delighted me to no end. My goal is to create little drawings that will inspire imagination and creativity in wee minds, while also starting to teach about ecology and ethics. ❇ Thanks for being here and following along! #womenwhodraw #illustratorsofinstagram #letthembelittle #lovelifeoutside #pnwcreatives #makersgonnamake #magicwoodlandsstudio PC: @landraskovlin
The power’s off, cat/dog/boyfriend/baby all snoozing and snow’s falling steadily outside. So lovely and quiet! Here’s a pic from our walk earlier on with @louisecholt
