When you want to be big but you’re still just little 😍😍 sweet boy just wants to do everything his sisters are doing!! They made the most of a cold rainy day with their super fun and exciting umbrellas 😂 seriously it was like Christmas morning when I pulled those things out! I love how much they love the simple things in life 🤗🤗🤗
// when you’re a hopeless romantic there are times when you take in extra-ordinary moments like this as if you were in a movie and you begin to wish that ordinary, everyday moments would seem that way too, only to look back on your memories and realize it was like a movie after all—random jump cuts, faded edges, muffled laughter, and all.

Many years ago a teacher at my sons school encouraged my son to be the one in his special needs centre to look after and take home some veggie plants. I had no idea what this would bring about. But my late father then started to take my son to Bunnings and they started to garden together also. Now my son just loves his garden! I often hear him out early in the morning watering his plants. He finds it enjoyable and relaxing and rewarding to see the end result 🙌 That’s why I was excited to hear that @yatesgardening has partnered with LEA and is offering 15 garden grants worth of $1000 to help a schools create a beautiful, functional space. This will help kids learn as my son did to love gardening and help encourage them to live a healthy lifestyle and love the rewards from gardening. #ad (link in bio)
Love is not what others feel about you, its what feeling you share with others // Welcoming two 2019 #mintedbride 's who reached out before officially booking their venues to make sure we were available for their dream days has me feeling inspired to be stepping into a season of sharing more love stories (and client coffee dates!)
Because when you're dreaming about a day filled with light and legacy, honoring it with memories in the form of photographs makes this heart the happiest #lifeofsomethingminted
We hebben een nieuwe Ben in huis! (Maar dan wel een zwijgzame variant 😉) Op school gemaakt, helemaal leuk toch!!! Je schrikt je wel een hoedje als je binnenkomt; handig voor boeven, vindt Ben. 😂
Fijne dag allemaal! 😙
(Ps: zien jullie er ook Dummie de mummie in?? Dat hoofd!)
On the back of the royal wedding and all of the opinions, it’s important to remember to be uniquely YOU on your wedding day ✨ If that means no lace and the more 'streamlined' look, then go for it! Read our blog on 'trends and friends' if you haven't already and see how PERFECTLY Megan Markle's royal gown fits into our first category!

It’s been a tough day of getting pampered 🧖🏼♀️. Thank you @pcaskin for all the wonderful spa treatments and invaluable skincare education! (By the way, I’m embracing the #nomakeup look in this photo).
Q: Do you set clear boundaries around your morning routine?
A: Yes. I’ve got a pretty solid routine that I like to stick to so that I feel my best each day. (Not saying this doesn’t change from time to time...because life, amiright?) But this routine gives me a basis for what a “normal day” looks and feels like. I’ve found that setting boundaries around that routine leaves me feeling guilt-free for taking necessary “me” time in the morning. By now, Samson looks forward to his runs every other day and B simply asks if it’s a pilates or run day so he knows if he should wait to feed Sam so he doesn’t run on a full stomach. Boundaries can be a positive. We’re all used to the rhythm and know what to expect, which is a win-win for everyone involved. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Curious what this project is all about?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This month, I decided to start a community hashtag project called the #maymorningedit . Each day in May, I’m inviting creatives and entrepreneurs, like yourself, to share their own perspectives through a series of prompts. And I'll be sharing my own answers right along with you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some questions are more thoughtful and intentional, while others are simply for fun. But each is designed to open you up to the possibility that you can change your life by changing the way you start each day. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't forget to share your answers to any of these prompts during the month of May with the hashtag #maymorningedit so I can cheer you on!
N O . 1 1 1 | i first discovered @madebymarywithlove several months after i’d given birth to ezra. we couldn’t afford much at the time & my husband was upset that he couldn’t get me some sort of extravagant #pushpresent (which, by the way, i feel should be renamed; i went through a four-day labor & c-section, so no pushing was involved, but i am no more or less of a mother than someone who was able to have her baby vaginally). i appreciated what he did do for me while we were at the hospital, but i wanted something more. not from him, but from myself, for myself. i mean, my body housed a little human inside it for nearly a year & i put all of myself into my pregnancy & protecting my unborn baby from harms of the outside world; i owed myself this. something, anything. then one night while scrolling through instagram, i found them — #madebymary . they had the most gorgeous jewelry that could be personalized with whatever date you’d like (while also sporting the minimal aesthetic i enjoy, not to mention the very doable prices), so i made a purchase right then & there for a gold bar necklace with my son’s birth date on it. i’m a believer that most things in this world are replaceable; they’re just things. but this necklace meant & means so much more. as a jewish woman, getting a tattoo is a major no-no, so this was my alternative. & a beautiful one, at that. my necklace isn’t just to commemorate my son’s birth, but my, at times, extremely challenging pregnancy, how i found my strength as a woman, the way i handled myself in situations involving bullies in my personal life & on social media, the way i proved everyone wrong that told me a “fat woman” could never get pregnant, much less have a successful pregnancy & birth, how i finally found my voice, how i endured excruciating pain for days. this is my warrior necklace. it can’t be replaced. thank you, @madebymarywithlove, for doing what you do. you’ve given me such an incredible gift that i’ve worn proudly around my neck for nearly two years. it’s perfect. 📷: @blushingbritt

Lily has such a vibrant personality, which is evident in everything she does, but in her rare serious moments, she takes my breath away. 😍 (Anybody else see young Cosette from Les Miserables? I have quite a few pictures of her that look just like the movie poster!)
I am sharing this image in honor of #worldturtleday The island of Maui has been able to increase the number of Green Sea Turtles (an endangered species) that inhabit their shores by 52% over the past 15 years by enforcing strict laws that encourage locals and visitors alike to honor the life cycle of these beautiful creatures. Because of this, turtles on Maui have no natural fear of
man and rest with pleasure up and down the western coast of the island without interference. What an experience it was to visit Maui for the second time and swim side by side with beings as old and large as me!!
This little light of mine 🙌 As a young girl I used to stare into the sky. I noticed the shapes and watched the clouds tell their own story. Tell your own story friend and the world will be all the better for it.
Being here at Chichen-itza ,One of the Wonders of the World was truly an amazing experience that got me thinking and reflecting of so many levels🤔
The most recognizable structure here is the Temple of Kukulkan, also known as El Castillo that’s the pyramid in picture.
The temple has 365 steps—one for each day of the year. Each of the temple’s four sides has 91 steps, and the top platform makes the 365th.
Devising a 365-day calendar was just one feat of Maya science. Incredibly, twice a year on the spring and autumn equinoxes, a shadow falls on the pyramid in the shape of a serpent. As the sun sets, this shadowy snake descends the steps to eventually join a stone serpent head at the base of the great staircase up the pyramid’s side.
The Maya’s astronomical skills were so advanced they could even predict solar eclipses, and an impressive observatory structure remains on the site today. No one can figure out how they knew this making this a wonder of the world 🌎 •
I can’t help but to think of my ancestors and how a part of me begins here is Mesoamerica. The other part following right after from France and Spain. So much blood, colonization and turmoil that made it what it is today.
Then there’s the hidden knowledge, the shamans, the astrology, the human sacrifices. Can’t help but to think, how does this all circle back to me? •
This is the reason I travel. I travel so that I can be reminded of myself. •
So that I don’t forget my humility and I also am reminded of my strength. Of what my ancestors endured and knew and that I too am a warrior of light and knowledge that has transcended to this life time to help other heal as well as do it for myself. So that generational curses are broken and hopefully they start with me. 💫✨
I’m so thankful for this experience!
Thank you Chichen-itza until we meet again. ❤️⭐️ •
