Camping, pregnancy and transformations!

It’s been ages since I’ve written for my blog but my inspiration to do so has finally returned.  we've been back just over a week now from an incredible few days camping at our home away from home, Holland's Wood. It's been a crazy few months with so many changes & transformations taking place! …

Third camping trip of the year: A week of many shifts!

Third camping trip of the year: A week of many shifts!

We just got back from our third camping trip of the year (June 9-16) and I know I said that the last one was one of the best weeks of my life well now i’m going to say that this one was! Every new camping experience seems to be better than the last & after over a month of no camping due to having too many photography projects and editing to do, this last trip couldn’t have come soon enough. …

A Week of Pure Inspiration

A Week of Pure Inspiration

​We arrived on the Saturday and besides just a couple of other campers we were the only ones there but by the following Monday we had the space completely to ourselves again, I just couldn't believe how perfect it all was. It's such a different experience when you can just be where you are rather than having to hike somewhere before you are not surrounded by people and there was just something so magical about being there completely on our own, we were able to feel & connect with the landscape differently, we became acquainted with everything that surrounded us such as the trees, the plants, the animals & insects in such a deeper way. …

The Rising Tadpole

The Rising Tadpole

Watching tadpoles go through their metamorphosis into little froglets has been such an incredible experience for our family especially Nixie. It wasn't something we set out to do but on one of our walks in the woods we found lots and lots of frogspawn in a giant puddle and with the only thing we had as a container: our Costa cups, we carefully collected some of it along with another cup filled with their puddle water and brought them home with us! …

Camping season has begun!

Camping season has begun!

We just had our very first camping trip of the year last week on March 22 when the campsite which had pretty much become our second home last summer opened up for the season. I haven’t had the chance to write about it until now because as soon as we got back I was inspired to create a new wall hanging, a weave using a fallen branch that I had found as my loom and now that it’s finished I can finally reminisce about our short but perfect little break away from it all.. …

Nixie's Snow Day Part II

Nixie's Snow Day Part II

I got up at 4:30 with her Sunday morning, but I didn't feel tired when she woke me & I was actually in the mood to get up... But that morning I was especially happy to be up because as we looked out into the garden it looked like a winter wonderland! Even more so than last time, I really didn't think that we'd get that much snow so I was pleasantly surprised! And what was even better was that it happened when Kevin was home. …

A week of many shifts

A week of many shifts

So many shifts have happened this week. We stopped nursing during the night & it's the 5th night where I have our super king all to myself! Nixie is asleep in her own bed in her own room & Kevin hasn't come home from work yet. It is such a strange feeling, she seems so grown up, like she's jumped 4 steps ahead! And today we had an incredible adventure to Whitley Wood. …

My Mother's Day Walk

My Mother's Day Walk

A couple of days late but I really wanted to share some photos from this past Sunday. I had a really beautiful mother's day. All I wanted to do was go for a walk somewhere new and that is exactly what we did. …

Streams, Puddles & More Puddles

Streams, Puddles & More Puddles

The woods were so so wet, and the streams were flowing. This is Nixie's favourite environment and it took her all of 5 seconds before she was off exploring the path of the stream by wading through it and at times sliding down the sides or jumping into it or just sitting in the middle of it. …

It Finally Happened, Nixie's First Snow!

It Finally Happened, Nixie's First Snow!

The snow is all gone now, & it only lasted a day but I feel the need to memorialise it because it was the first time Nixie got to experience snow and I want it on here as a memory. Plus I took lots of photos and I need a place to share them. …
