For #navigatingthroughdecember , I discovered that ... 🌲Whichever Charlie Brown Christmas tree I choose, it always ends up looking great after it's decorated. 🌲Don't bother with putting it in water, it's already dead. 🌲900 lights plus a string of twinkling ones makes me happiest. 🌲 It's MY tree to decorate, however ... I will have to figure a way to accommodate her need to Help. 🌲Red is always necessary in my tree decorating scheme. .  #ohtannenbaum #christmastree #taleswithfriends #interiordecorating #fionamariepeach ##alifeofintention #theartofslowliving #bedeeplyrooted #bepresent #collectivelycreate #cultivatewhatmatters #embracingaslowerlife #everydaymagic #exploretocreate #feelfreefeed #creativemamas #createeveryday
#softness for #decemberreflections2017 .  This year, I am easing into my holiday season. Proactively tackling what matters to me (cards, presies, tree) in a way that feels easy and satisfying. And this leaves me roomy room to be here watching my people. .  She said she wanted to see Santa. And they conversed for a good 5 minutes at least. He told her all of his elves played with Barbies daily. He is a very kind and gentle man this Santa. .  While I lit the tree tonight, she exclaimed, "Christmas is not about giving presents, it's about giving love." Again she has out-wised us all. .  Soft is a state of heart and I wish tons of it for you today. .  #taleswithfriends #santa #fionamariepeach #mywisdomlessons #alifeofintention #theartofslowliving #bedeeplyrooted #bepresent #collectivelycreate #cultivatewhatmatters #embracingaslowerlife #everydaymagic #exploretocreate #feelfreefeed #flashesofdelight #everythingissacred
The Biggest Change of 2017 for #decemberreflections2017 .  Both the hallway renovation and Fiona beginning full day school were huge changes. (The dining room going pink was pretty big too.) One required permission, vision, and the perfect rug. The other required a grant for our local elementary school to staff the full day pre-K. Lucky us! I love my reno'ed rooms and her lovely preK teacher too! Fiona has bloomed at school. .  Here's to many many more luxurious alone days to creatively sprawl into before next Summer. And perhaps there is some more redecorating to do ? Or not. .  #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach #hallway #firstdayofschool #gingersofig #createeveryday #creativemamas
Favorite photo for #decemberreflections2017 .  Wow! How hard is this prompt?  I take many many many pictures. I use them for my blog as well as on Instagram daily.  This practice had led me to being such a better photographer, although I still don't own a "proper" camera. My Pentax K1000 bought the farm after it developed a ghost in the machine 8 years ago. And I dream of a DSLR. .  My favorite pictures always seem to have both my kids in them. And this one was what I used for my Christmas card this year. So I guess this'll due. Second place is the one where they are sticking out their blue tongues! .  #treeclimbing #eamonspencerpeach #fionamariepeach #siblings #childrenofinstagram #createeveryday #writersofig #bepresent #collectivelycreate #cultivatewhatmatters #embracingaslowerlife #everydaymagic #exploretocreate #feelfreefeed #flashesofdelight #everythingissacred #nothingisordinary #thehappynow #liveunscripted #liveauthentically #taleswithfriends
#red for #decemberreflections2017 .  Me and Sassafras were out and about yesterday, shopping and doing. We stopped in to Chick-Fil-A for a bite and a romp. My redhead posed and poised, taking it all in. .  #redhead #gingershavemorefun #toddlersofinstagram #eastonmd #fionamariepeach #habitrail #taleswithfriends #storyofmyday ##bepresent #collectivelycreate #cultivatewhatmatters #embracingaslowerlife #everydaymagic #exploretocreate #feelfreefeed #flashesofdelight #everythingissacred
"I am" for #navigatingthroughnovember .  I am doing my best every day.  I am a long way from where I started.  I am wise and blind.  I am the nicest mean Mommy ever.  I am making it up as I go.  And I'm learning to trust my process. .  Thank you so much @ofearthandstars India for all of yiur hard work creating and hosting this challenge. It was nice to stay in touch with my community through some of the toughest days of the month. .  #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership #taleswithfriends  #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #personaldevelopment #emotionalintelligence #qrowthmindset #movingforward
#perfectpair for #navigatingthroughnovember . .  These two dodging goose poop on the sidewalk before Thanksgiving dinner. It's totally a miracle that I got one of each. Especially at 38 & 46. But it worked out as it was supposed to. .  She's a little miffed he got to be first though. We tried to tell her being the caboose has its advantages. He can warn her about upcoming  parental speed bumps. Really, he got our neuroses and our doubts worked out on him. .  #eamonspencerpeach #fionamariepeach #childrenofinstagram #laureldelaware #easternshoreofmaryland #abbottscreek #getoutside #creativemamas #taleswithfriends
#uplifting for #navigatingthroughnovember . .  I'm currently enduring a life bump that is trying me. My faith in humanity, my patience with process, my energy and wisdom for coping. And then Fiona says, "We are a family team" and let's not break up today. Let's be together. .  So we left the house and spread our family wings on Friday. A picnic and romp at Sailwinds park on our Choptank River in Cambridge, Maryland an hour South of our house where the river is wide and wonderous. .  Then we rode further South to see the new Harriet Tubman visitor center in Dorchester County. The small and rich interactice exhibit provided me with some inspiration and unexpected understanding of myself. .  In the face of horror and grief, this woman refused to accept anything as a given. She knew her purpose was to be of service to her people by the direction of her God. Every step she took was right. Born in 1822…she lived to be 91. Uplifting? Hell Yeah.

Through the Looking Glass for #navigatingthroughnovember .  When I was 25 years younger, I really didn't see myself capable of raising children. I liked them. But I was having a super hard time even taking care of myself. .  This is the other side. Through the looking glass.There was never a given. Just so much hard work. And presence. I am here now. It is pretty spectacular. And truly all I have. .  #selfie #fionamariepeach #taleswithfriends #autumn #getoutside  #pinkismyfavoritecolor #pinkpower #mom #creativemamas
#navigatingthroughnovember 2:22 - Middle of the afternoon. Grocery store shopping done. Lunch done. All that's left is to color on boxes and pull all your toys out and complain about your brother. .  Her outfit is so electric today! .  Day one of five of no school. Wish me and the kids good luck with that. .  The blog post today is titled The Work and the Waiting. Sometimes we don't think we're going or doing fast enough. But we may find things are evolving even when we take our hands off of the reigns and the whip.

#hands for #navigatingthroughnovember . "When we commit to taking our hands off of changing things and just letting them go instead, work will be done." From my blog post to publish 11/22 titled The Work and the Waiting. .  Sometimes we are in process and that's enough. Sometimes keeping on is good enough. .  #fionamariepeach #taleswithfriends #tomatoes #mywisdomlessons #backyard #thoughtleader #ontheblog
This Magic Moment for #navigatingthroughnovember . .  A sleepy sunny Sunday not too long ago.  My beautiful innocent talented children.  My heart sings when I see this picture.  Grateful to my life for leading me here. .  #eamonspencerpeach #fionamariepeach #kidsofinstagram #liveauthentic #creativemama #createeveryday #tinymoments #taleswithfriends #gratitude
#lessonlearned for #navigatingthroughnovember .  If you visit my blog (link everpresent in my profile), you would see my byline is Gathering My Lessons Daily .I'm a big believer in lessons. Always on alert for them so that I may share them as I process. And here's one I learned recently that got a loud resounding AHA! .  Resentment and Forgiveness : when you find it hard to let go of something that happened and the hard feelings you have towards someone, it goes deeper. This is you being mad at yourself for being vulnerable. For not holding up your boundaries and preventing the hurt from happening. Your inner child was shamed or injured and she's mad because she was and you didn't keep her safe.  I have had a few stalled resentments of recent and I just couldn't figure my way around them until this. So while I continue to fortify my boundaries and learn how to trust me to keep me safe in the future, I am working on releasing my anger and forgiving everyone's humanity. .  On the blog, a renovated perennial titled Kindergarten Homework dedicated to Mrs. Kistler who is Fiona's pre-K yeacher and 8 years ago, was Eamon's Kindergarten teacher. .  #createeveryday #fionamariepeach #watercolor #creativemamas #ourcreativeselves #soul_selfie #mywisdomlessons #ontheblog #selfleadership #liveauthentic #gingersofig #playtime #emotionalmaturity #emotionalintelligence #taleswithfriends
#intransit for Navigating through November . .  Having this girl at the riper age of 46 is definitely been challenging and exhausting. This was a selfie atop a fire engine as we rode around ontop during an event to benefit her school. Climbing up there was Exhausting. But the ride was rather envigorating. I think that describes my journey with the fair Miss Fiona to a T. .  Today I'm hosting a cookout for my husband's company. But first, my own time writing and IG! Happy Weekend Ya'll! .  #toddlersofinstagram #gingershavemorefun #fionamariepeach #getoutside #taleswithfriends
#intention for #navigatingthroughnovember - .  I have been working hard to clarify and delineate my goals and my intentions and my passions etc. And I've recently nailed my intention. .  An intention is worded in the present tense. It is inspirational and proactive encompassing your feeling towards how you want to live with the ultimate responsibility being yours. .  It is also immensely freeing. Mine allows me to choose projects I want that benefit me as well as others in varying levels. Here it is: "I am connecting with and seeing myself more as I engage in conversations with like-minded people, telling and listening to our stories and lending permission to others to tell their stories too." .  It's all there for me. I am doing my heart work and artwork. I am publishing, blogging, guestblogging, chatting online and off, and perhaps participating in podcasts. If it fits into these parameters, it's golden. .  #liveauthentically #selfleadership #leadership #taleswithfriends #soul_selfie #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity  #perspective #liveonpurpose #selfawareness #personalgrowth #mindfulness #humanity #personaldevelopment #emotionalintelligence #qrowthmindset #movingforward #mywisdomlessons #fionamariepeach .
😹 What I'm Listening to Right Now🐱 for #navigatingthroughnovember  At the park in the woods with Fiona, I hear the crows cawing, an occasional woodpecker tapping, and my four year-old daughter making up a song about hope and compassion and stars and truth. .  #martinakstatepark #autumn #fall #getoutdoors #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach
Oh what fun we had trick or treating! Happy Halloween Everyone!  My sister surprised us with her Sulley costume. Fiona was a tabby cat. Eamon was a black Knight. And his friend was a psycho jester.  We ate pizza, collected plenty of candy, and saw some of our favorite friends on our trick or treating route. Just fun. .  #sully #halloween #trickortreat #eamonspencerpeach #fionamariepeach #taleswithfriends
Having some fall fun at the Clayton Farms pumpkin stand.. Milking all the lovely weather moments while we can. .  Tomorrow I have the pleasure of hosting again my Mindful Meet-up. Because we need a place that safe to tell our tales. .  And yesterday's blog post was about pain and the way the fear of it messes with you. I am happy to report I may have relier in site for my SI joint! Something about that hope dangling there all Summer that took so much out of me. .  Link in my profile to my blog at Shalavee.com and the post titled My Fear of the Pain and Fearing the Pain Would Stay . .  #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach #eamonspencerpeach #fallfun #autumn #familytime #kidsofinstagram #ontheblog
The number one fear and fallacy you're basing your life choices on is ....what "they" think matters. Malarkey.  An excerpt from my blog post yesterday: "What if we made decisions instead on what we liked and what we wanted?What if we assumed we were well-liked, or perhaps didn’t care what people thought, and went from there. If we decorated our houses, our bodies, and thoughts with the stuff we like. How inspiring we would be to all the other people in the world if we showed them what individuality means." .  Whoever told us all we were mind-readers was lying. We can not possibly know what anyone but us is thinking. So let's make what we're thinking mean more than what they're thinking about us. Because those people are worried about the exact same thing. .
