Soaking up these little moments while I still can. On our walk home yesterday evening from school he asked me non stop to hold his hand. Constantly and persistently asking, but I was struggling to do that and push Louie in his stroller. I started to get frustrated at Oslo because he wouldn’t stop asking, and didn’t understand that I needed both my hands. Then I took a moment to realize that there will come a day when he pushes me away and he will no longer want to hold my hand every chance he gets. He won’t come running into my arms and yell “Mama!” when I pick him up from school, and let me kiss him all over his sweet face. There will be a time not too long from now when these sweet snaps will bring me so much joy and help me remember that all he ever wanted was me.
A little different to having starfish on my chest, but today was a day without kids and all about what I wanted to do. It was much needed and I’m grateful to have established a healthy balance between motherhood, work and me time. It’s not always a perfect balance, but I know these things take time. Any-who here’s proof I actually wore something other than leggings or a onesie for the first time in a while. Marched my ass all across town in these heels, so I’m feeling quite proud. I’ve got no idea how I used to work on a cruise ship and wear heels every day for 6 months. 20 something Jules would be ashamed of me now. So here’s to days like today that make me feel like a whole human! How was your day today??
Quick question! How much time after you get back from holiday are you allowed to keep posting from that holiday? 2 weeks? 3 months? A year? I don’t actually care what the answer is, the question was just an excuse to have this ridiculousness on my grid. Move over Ariel, there’s another mermaid on the block! 🧜🏼♀️🦀⭐️ (Sports Illustrated @si_swimsuit call anytime if interested!)👙 #JustYourAverageVacation #NothingToSeeHere #Yolo #IfThisResultsInOneMillionFollowersImNotSurprised
Running to the shops bright and early for flowers ready for a full work week of content shooting for clients! Louie is back at the nanny, but unfortunately I have a new and easier sidekick named Oslo with me. He’s not well again so I’ve kept him home, but the good news is I should be able to actually get work done this week as he will happily sit and watch Paw Patrol all day. Wishing you a productive Monday you lovely lot!🙌🏻
Today was one of those ‘good for the soul’ kinda days. It’s amazing what a little sunshine and fresh sea air can do to make you feel refreshed after an exhausting week. We had some good plain old family fun and the boys loved being able to run free and play in the sand. James and I took lots of fun photos from today and it was hard to not share them all here, so I will put the rest in my stories. I hope you all had a lush weekend with your loves! 🌞🌊💛
Had this little squish face home with us today and it was such a treat, and he helped save me from Louie’s crazy ways. He calls me his “best friend in the whole world” and I feel exactly the same way! #ourlittleoslo
There’s nothing quite like curling up in bed especially during the day, to a good book. I hate to admit this but I haven’t read a novel or fiction book in probably over ten years. I could never get into the story if it wasn’t real. I love a good memoir as I always finish the book taking so much away from it, and never felt that way with a novel. This book right here, Normal People by Sally Rooney (lent to me by my good friend @danniwing) has me hooked. It’s hard to believe Sally is actually younger than me, because her talent seems beyond her years. It’s a real page turner and I highly recommend it to everyone, but especially to all the non novel lovers out there! 📚💛
The day we can pour the cheese on all the love we have for our loves, and totally get away with it. So go for it guys! Let the cheese flow today 🧀🧀🧀 This guy right here is my everything. I’m grateful every day he chose me to spend his life with and make adorable babies with. Life gets in the way sometimes of the romance we used to have, but now it’s the little gestures that mean the most to me. Like him canceling his workout tonight to come home and be with me. Haha these are our standards now! But I don’t care, just being with him is what makes me happy. I love you my Frenchy 🥰 Anyway enough of that and onto this photo sequence. Starts off nice, ends with me nearly breaking his neck. Pretty much sums us up in just 4 photos and might be my favourite ones ever! Happy Valentine’s Day you lovely lot!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Just a street cat admiring the gorgeous mimosa blooms on his way to school. These bright yellow firework blooms pop out just when winter is starting to feel too long and we hope for warmer weather. Suddenly these burst everywhere in the South and you appreciate this season all over again 🎇
Freshly picked pamplemousse from our garden🍊🍊🍊 Today I felt it guys, I felt spring in the air. It was so warm Louie and I spent the afternoon outside, picking grapefruits and cleaning up the ones that drop daily. If you excuse the background noise of Louie playing, you can hear the birds that live in the forest behind our home. They are so loud and they make me so happy. I’m so excited to get this garden shipshape in time for Summer. Happy days!
