As my holiday comes to an end it’s allowed me so much time to reflect and redirect my energy and thoughts as I’ve spent time time absorbing the beautiful energy of nature and the energy of different people who I’ve surrounded my self with this trip.
I’m starting the next chapter of my life as I go deeper into my pregnancy and birth of my child. This major next chapter has caused so many questions in my own mind about who do I want to be for myself ? Who do I want to be for our child ? Do I live to my purpose constantly ?
The answer is...
I think I forgot you get scared it’s such a major shift that you have all the questions and answers come all at once and you don’t know if being you for YOU would be best for your child and so on...but guess what...it IS.
If YOU can be YOU.
Your most authentic, truest self then my child will be happy, it will witness me in my happiest form and be nurtured by this.
Basically I’ve remembered to be ME.
Funny, silly, loud, slightly inappropriate at times, kind, compassionate, adventurous, passionate, open,driven and determined.
BON APPÉTIT 😋
Families Who Lunch Together 🥛🥛
This is one of my absolute favourite photos from my first couple months of motherhood. Shane took it during our first family outing with Lu when she was about three weeks old, when I still had a really rough time walking or even getting out of bed. We had THE BEST day, and I don’t think I’ve ever felt so proud as I did then, hanging out on the grass with my new beautiful baby. When she cried out in hunger, I fed her, and Shane snapped a photo of the moment. It was one of our first family lunches in public, and it was perfect ☀️
I had a lot of people messaging me about how brave this is, and I would LOVE to feel brave, but more than anything, it just feels normal. In Ontario, it’s legal for women to go topless because #equality and #freethenipple. Growing up knowing this, and seeing women feed in public, I personally feel no stigma, and I didn’t even think twice when Lucy got hungry that day. Reading so many of your comments and messages I feel incredibly lucky to live where I do, and to be surrounded friends and family who don’t bat an eye when I nurse when we’re out. 👶🏼 🍼
Because my followers come from so many different places, my post was seen by a lot of people outside of my usual bubble. A woman told me that she doesn’t go out with her baby because it’s too difficult to find places to nurse; last time she tried, she ended up in a storage closet. It breaks my heart to think of women in public toilets or storage closets nursing out of shame or embarrassment; there is nothing shameful or embarrassing about nourishing your baby!
To those two guys - and all like them - who commented on my previous picture that what I was doing was disgusting or showed a lack of respect for my husband: 🙄. Maaajor 🙄. It’s hard to respond, especially when your Insta profile picture is just your naked torso in a mirror selfie, both man-nipples exposed. I’m bonding with my child. You’re bonding with you. So I want to link you up to this awesome account because I think it’ll really throw you off: @genderless_nipples.

Do you love baskets? I love the natural feel and texture that they bring to a room. If you’re using your baskets for plants make sure that you line them with plastic because they can get damp, go mouldy and perish. A great trick to keep them clean and fresh is to go over them with the vacuum cleaner, this gets out any dust. 🍃 And doesn’t our cot look beautiful in this gorgeous nursery?💕
