Exhausted, makeupfree, bonds tracksuit with a cardi thrown over the top for dinner, however right here, was probably my most favourite part of the weekend. My eldest, my biggest baby sleeping in my arms. Moments like this become less and less the older they get, what used to be a daily thing once upon a time, is now a rarity and in these moments that mean so much to you, your heart nearly breaks and bursts at the same time. I’ve continued to struggle within myself lately, those of you following along know it’s been an ongoing challenge I try to be somewhat open about. Time away to switch off was very much a priority, it’s amazing that when I feel so incomplete just having my babies and my husband near to make me feel loved, safe and wanted can soothe so many worries and calm my (often) chaotic mind. I hope everyone had a lovely and safe long weekend xxx #homeiswhereeverimwithyou#foreverloved#motherhood

Good morning friends!! I've been slowly creating the perfect outdoor space for our little family!🌈🌿 I was beside myself to work with two of my favorite shops again to create this vibe!🏜🧡 I've had such a hard time getting this space exactly how I wanted it, but I added this outdoor sofa from @the_futon_shop & hung these beautiful glowy lights from @brightechshop ,and viola completely transformed the feel, the warmth, & now our patio feels complete! This has been our favorite spot to spend mornings, and the best place to wind down in the evenings!🌼 ____________________________________________
These incredible companies helped me create the perfect recipe for this patio refresh!! You can find us lounging on our pull out futon from @the_futon_shop , underneath the glow of string lights from @brightechshop#ad I am so excited to share this space with friends coming in this weekend!!❤ Have a beautiful hump day!! __________________________________________
I picked up this throw blanket a few weeks ago @t.jmaxx_homegoods for under $20 and I'm loving all the cozy texture it added to the room. Never underestimate the value of small changes- a room doesnt need a complete overhaul to have a fresh look. Something as simple as new throw pillows, a blanket, or a new lamp can totally bump up the style in a room for very little money.
I’ll share more of our new house later, but I wanted to share my favorite part. The backyard is super awesome and this tree is in the center of it 😍 I never imagined we’d get a backyard like this in Durham in our price range. The house is cute and eclectic and I really like it, but the backyard absolutely sold me. I also love that it’s in an established place in Durham and literally in the middle of everything.
What a thing it is to take one step and feel all oneself coming home, in one moment, wholly and completely alive. To no longer waste away, walking through life unsatiated, always seeking and never finding. How do you even begin to express that kind of gratitude? In the solitude of these places, not the lonely places anymore, the places where the ground delights to feel your bare feet upon it, the places where you can weep streaming tears into the earth, the places where the raptor birds celebrate your arrival on the wind. This must be the place. Who would have believed, you could come home to yourself in a place you’ve never known. #yana#iveneverbeenthisfar#freedom#sheexplores#yanacares#homeiswhereeverimwithyou
Having a home is wonderful but it’s even better when home is the person you share your heart with. ❤️
Holidays will be here sooner than you think! Don’t miss out on giving a special gift and order your portrait today! #clothandtwig
We are enjoying a relaxing week in the beautiful #outerbanks with our family this week.
Today we visted a few local antique and thrift shops but our favorite was definitely Seagreen Gallery on Virginia Dare Trail. It was full of beautiful handmade art pieces and displays of found objects such as these glass bottles. Also check out their massive collection of drift wood in my stories.
Choosing the "perfect" piece of driftwood was much like trying to choose the perfect pumpkin - i had to carry a few around until i decided on just the right one. What's your most recent thrifted find?
