The Past Couple Weeks In Pictures :)

"Anyone's life truly lived consists of work, sunshine, exercise, soap, plenty of fresh air, and a happy contented spirit."

Lillie Langtry
British Actress


Glass jar + growing critter from dollar store = excellent book shelf decor. ;)

Public transit reading material.
"A smile is contagious, lets start on..."

Max and two of his favorites: the bath tub and a basket.

These are the best homemade pancakes!
The recipe is very simple, they take next to no time to make, and always turn out super fluffy.

I think this used to be an apple...

Beautiful day!
Boy oh boy that wind was cold by the water.

My boys napping on the sofa together :)

Self Portrait Project: Week 5

"You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection."

Spiritual Teacher 

In the whirlwind of trying to find a job and taking on the upkeep of our apartment I have started to slip in the self-love department.
Taking on too much and not setting aside time for myself to slow down, relax and find my center has led to near burnout.
That is never fun.
But it is a wake-up call.
"Hello? Self? Yes, I'm listening..."

It's time for me to take a step back, re-evaluate, and set some priorities.
 Taking care of me needs to be number 1!
That means asking for help, taking time out everyday to do something I love, eating lots of healthy food and getting those 8 hours of lovely shuteye every night.

So here I am, back with my Self Portrait Project :D
