Quanti anni hai?
Dipende dal colore del cielo e dai sogni della luna e da come i miei pensieri mettono radici nell'aria.
Quasi sempre, per fortuna, sette.
- Fabrizio Caramagna
Buon compleanno Chiara.
Sono arrivata a compiere 40 anni. Che fortuna. Quanta bellezza!
Mi piace questa età. Troppo spesso mi sono sentita troppo grande, qualche volta troppo piccola. Forse questa è la prima volta che posso dire di sentirmi veramente a mio agio con gli anni che porto!
Mi sento grata. Di essere arrivata qui con un bagaglio di esperienze, di doni, di occasioni speciali che mi hanno reso la persona imperfetta ma unica che sono. Entusiasta, nel fare la lista delle altre millemila esperienze che ho intenzione di fare, forse con ancor più coraggio, grinta e consapevolezza.
A chi mi chiede come mi sento, rimarcando il fatto che (se tutto va bene) sono a circa metá strada, rispondo semplicemente, nessuna malinconia, nessuna paura del domani, solo la certezza che la vita è breve e che per questo faró di tutto per rendere ogni giorno un giorno speciale, un giorno degno di essere vissuto con tutta me stessa.
Life has been busy, but I’ve been embracing the craziness at every turn 🥰

Sunday Funday 🎉
Und während es draußen Bindfäden regnet, denke ich an meinen leckeren Eiskaffe letztes Wochenende 💙
Einziger Wermutstropfen: zu viel Plastik!!! Trinkhalm, Becher und Löffel, aber leider keine Alternative in der Nähe.
Habt ihr immer einen Becher, Trinkhalm, Löffel dabei oder verzichtet ihr in solchen Momenten dann doch auf ToGo-Getränke, egal wie groß der Heißhunger ist?
Godmorgon världen! ☕
Lite krispigt ute -5 😣
Dags att slänga på sig några lager kläder och ta hundarna på en liten sväng. Sen till det eminenta nöjet att få Kingen ner i badkaret.. Veterinärbesök idag också, håller tummarna för att det är bra nyheter.
Ha nu en fortsatt trevlig torsdag 💞 #enjoythesmallthings
ABSOLUTELY soaking up any & all moments that I get one on one with this missy. She has been my entire world for the last 2.5 years and I am having the crazy mixed mom emotions about how exciting it is to have a new little and yet how sad I am that it will never be the just mommy and me moments like the ones we share now. Cue a hormonal cry. Goodness. I feel so incredibly blessed with Raelynn that I truly can't imagine life any other way than it is now...but in a few months some massive adjustments will be happening and I want to feel excited and "prepared" but wanna just cry a lot too Haha. ✴✴✴✴
Mommas how did you get through these hard feelings transitioning from 1 kiddo to 2?
They say “Don’t take yourself too seriously.” I say, “Don’t take your plans too seriously. Especially if you have to take I-35.” I had the whole thing planned out. But life happened. And road construction happened. So, yesterday became what I didn’t intend. But I jumped all in and enjoyed it. Every moment sitting on the bench waiting for the “big kids” or “little kids” to get off the rides the others couldn’t. They’re only little once and these formative moments and memories are so fleeting and precious. I know I let so many whiz right by, and I want to do better about that. So I’m saving this picture to remind me that kid photography and making the most of the situation sometimes beats my other plans.
Was für ein Ess-Typ bist Du?
a) Ich atme mein Essen quasi ein. Langsam essen klappt irgendwie nicht so gut.
b) Ich checke meist noch Mails oder Whatsapp nebenher. Wirklich nur zu essen fällt mir schwer.
c) Ich esse super langsam, und bin meist die/der Letzte am Tisch. Wenn ich unter Zeitdruck essen muss, krieg ich Bauchweh.
Wusstest Du, dass das WIE beim Essen genauso wichtig ist wie das WAS? Vergessen wir nur leider gern mal. 🙈 Gut kauen, langsam und in Ruhe, ohne was anderes nebenher zu machen und in einer wohligen Umgebung oder mit lieben Menschen zu essen hilft Dir bereits, Dein Essen besser zu verdauen. Eigentlich cool, oder? -
Welcher Typ bist Du?

I do a lot of standing here. From the sink is where I watch the boys play. It’s where I prepare snacks & meals. It’s where I clean the kitchen, obviously. And it’s one of the areas that gets the most cluttered. But since I stand here so often, I wanted something pretty to look at. Something that would just brighten up the space a smidge. I like it. It’s pretty. It’s my style. And for the time being, it’s as cleared off as it gets. Swipe to see the rest of the countertop though 👉 And yes. That is a flag stuck in my ball of yarn. Don’t ask🤦♀️
The schools here are on half terms hols this week...but what can you do during the holidays that is fun, thrifty and full of hope in a week following two weekends blighted by severe storms?? Tobes and I have put our heads together and come up with some ways of filling the next few days
so, in no particular order: 🌷 plant some summer bulbs in pots by your front door and sow sweet peas inside on sunny windowsills 🚴🏼♂️ go on a bike ride 🌱 go daffodil hunting and look for signs of spring 🦆 feed the ducks at your local park 🌳 walk in a forest (or a wood) 🌬 fly a kite 🚃🏖 wrap up warm and go for a day out to the seaside on the train 🏛 visit a museum 📖 go to your local library and take out some books for a reading afternoon in your pyjamas 🎮 learn to play your child’s favourite video game (no guessing whose idea this was!) 🎲 have a boardgames, hot chocolate and pyjamas evening 🌳 meet some friends in the park 🌿 go on a nature walk 🥪 have an indoor or incar picnic 🥧 bake a pie 🍤 eat fish and chips outside from the paper 🌅 go and sit on the swings and talk whilst watching the sun go down ✨ go for a walk after dark and look for constellations...before coming home and warming up with hot chocolate
Memories we make with our family is everything. I hope everyone enjoys their Family Day!! 👨👩👦👦👩👦👨👦👨👦👦 👨👧👧
