Settling into the day, getting some school done, running errands, hanging outside with my little babes and reflecting on a wonderful weekend with my man. It's so easy to take for granted what we have, it's too easy to let time pass us by without really enjoying one another. I am so (beyond) thrilled I had these past five days with my love, to celebrate love, ours and some of our closest friends, and to remember what it's all about. Those promises we make are real. . . . . . . . . . #wildandfreemama #homeschoolmom #lifeschooling #lifewellcaptured #eclectichomeschool #fromwhereistand #fromthecuttingroomfloor #motherhoodsimplified #simplychildren #wildandfreechildren #momentslikethese #runwildmychild #theartofslowliving #theartofmothering #thatsdarling #darlingmovement #petitjoys
Today I pick up these cuties and I have missed them! . So naturally, I'm going through old photos of them until they're in my arms and I can give them a good squeeze and a big smooch. #throwback  Throwback Monday is a thing, yes? . . . . . . . . . #motherhoodsimplified #thesincerestoryteller #eclectichomeschool #wildandfreemama #wildandfreechildren #runwildmychild #liveauthentic #honestmotherhood #kidsforreal #homeeducation #lifeschooling #lifewellcaptured #simplychildren #simplifychildhood #freerangekids #theartofslowliving #letthembelittle #fromwhereistand #momentslikethese #theartofmothering
I can't believe I left these guys behind, after only being back home with them again for 3.5 days. I miss them already and part of me feels guilty they aren't with me, but who am I kidding? Do they look sad to you? It's always all smiles and giggles and cuddles at Nana and Papa's. See you soon babies . . . . . . #allthefeels #lethembelitte #letsgosomewhere #wildandfreechildren #theartofslowliving #thesincerestoryteller #motherhoodsimplified #simplychildren #momentslikethese #fromwhereistand #theartofmothering #lifeschooling #eclectichomeschool #homeeducation
Apparently, "New Sketchers make me run and climb better Mom". New tenners for both kids today. Tye-dyed socks for her and some athletic shorts for him. School shopping started. .  Then we had to take those Sketchers to the park and make sure they did what they promised. And, what do you know, she can climb that slide better than ever. .  #sundaythoughts #fionamariepeach #taleswithfriends #theartofmothering #playground #slide #prekhereicome #sketchers #gingershavemorefun
SABBATICAL // Now 5 months into my #creativesabbatical2017 (well, four actually because I took December off and then wrapped up work in January), I'm no longer feeling panicked about not working, and have wholly embraced this domestic mom life that I was terrified to take on without having the 'work-from-home' status to prop up my insecurities and, let's be honest, pride.  It's been freeing to have less to focus on for this season, and I feel like a huge weight has been lifted--a weight that felt like a heaping dollop of guilt that managed to make me feel like I was a bad mom for dividing my time and trying to juggle it all.  No matter how hard I tried or how many hours I slaved, I could never be that woman who was an uber-successful #girlboss AND a make-my-meals-from-scratch, crazy intentional wife and mom.  I was living in the land of mediocrity and I hated it.  Something had to change, so I chose to dedicate this year to pursuing rest and restoration for myself and my family.  That's not to say YOU can't be/do both, or that I can't be/do both in another season of my life, but in THIS season, I had to say no to trying to do it all, and say YES to what was best for me, for us.  And that meant paring life down, simplifying our schedules, and letting the essence of essentialism wash over me. (Read Greg McKeown's Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less or listen to @purposefulhomepodcast if you'd like to find inspiration in this vein of thinking). It's been the most freeing few months and a blessing to reflect upon this Mother's Day.  With all that in mind, I would love to know what you would change about the way you do motherhood if you could make it happen.  Be bold, share your heart mamas! --- PS // Outakes from this little shoot with the girls in Instagram Stories.  So blessed to have my daughters be the impetus for this season of slowing down...they teach me SO much! // Film scans by @photovisionprints --- #motherhood #theartofmothering #myquestforrest

Flowers for Mom.  Mothering is an art form.  The art of mothering does not require offspring.  To all those that lift nurturing to an art form, be it with animal, vegetable or mineral... I tip my hat, raise my glass and offer you a heartfelt hug.  These acts are those that can indeed save the world.  Love on my sister-mother-auntie-animal-garden loving souls...love on 😘#mothermeanslove #theartofmothering #womenthatmother #amotherslove #lovewillsaveusall
Wishing all the very special Mothers out there a Happy Mothers Day #theartofmothering #theglue #praiseforallofherdays

"If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you."- A.A Milne |. My momma left today to go back to California after spending 6 weeks taking care of us from getting up in the middle of the night to feed the baby to making us meals for days to come.  This woman has always been a steadfast anchor in my life and never judges but always offers a hand of graciousness with absolutely everything she does.  There is no task to small, load too heavy or mountain too high.  She would say that she is just an average person and doing just the thing she was called to do.  She is more than my mother, she is my friend and mentor and a Grandmother to my Giulian.  Her calling is one that has cast a wide net over her lifetime and blesses all whom are within her reach.  #mymom #theartofmothering #motherhood #grandmas #newborn #giulianaugustine #whatarewegoingtodo
"The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children.” ~Elaine Heffner  Dear Star child, please never stop making, creating, learning, loving, twirling, laughing, crying, messing up, growing and playing with blue bubble gum bath paint in the tub. You are going to make so many mistakes and some of them will be perfect works of art in the end. Iloveyouiloveyouiloveyou

Yess!!! πŸ™ŒπŸΎβœ¨ I talk a lot about this to my postpartum moms, but I definitely know it's not easy. If you are in the East Bay please join us this Sunday 1P or 245P @anasayoga with myself along with two amazing senior birth professionals @theartofmothering and @samsarah_morgan_urban_nana who will be sharing their wisdom about how to stay healthy and how to stay connected to your heart in these transitioning and sometimes stressful times... using herbal remedies, massage, mindfulness, and the support of our community and ancestral wisdom. I will be also offering yoga practices to ground and relax the whole family. This is a sliding scale event and we would love to have as many families join us that are interested. Please message me if the cost is an issue. We believe this is a necessary event for the community to experience and share with their loved ones.
