From yesterday morning at my folks’ house in Wales. Honestly, just magical. Frosted sheep nuzzling the ground, a soft mist rising in the distance, birdsong, plumes of breathy smoke, December sunshine...remembering all over again the reasons why I moved to the countryside 🌿✨

It’s been a year today since I’ve been doing this photography and Instagram thing full time— it’s been full on, exciting, scary & really all of the emotions— I’ve achieved more than I ever thought I could & I’m doing what I’ve always wanted to do so it really has been the best year 🍂✨ Is there anything you’ve been really grateful for this year or proud that you’ve achieved this year? I’d love to hear all about it 🙌🏼

A few weeks ago I uploaded a blog post talking about the five books I wanted to read before the end of the year & I thought I’d share a little update—
I’ve finished On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous on the flight back from Chicago and absolutely loved it, it’s such a beautifully written book that stirs up all of your emotions which is always what I’m looking for from a book. I’m currently about halfway through Uprooted and although it’s enjoyable so far, I’m not loving it as much as I hoped I would, but I’m going to reserve judgement until the end. I’ve still got three other books I’d love to read & I’m hoping to start one of them this weekend 🙌🏼
Is there anything you’re really hoping to read before the end of the year? Are you reading anything great at the moment? As always I love to have a chat about books so feel free to tell me all about them! 🍂✨

Чем же пахнет зима? ❄ Конечно же, мандаринами, апельсинами, шоколадными конфетами в шуршащей обёртке, ароматным чаем с корицей, имбирным печеньем, ёлками, хорошим настроением, добрыми делами и обязательно чудесами, и не только в Новогоднюю ночь, ведь чудеса творим мы сами💫💫💫

A pot of tea and a book to get lost in are exactly what this season’s about ☕️📖❄️
I’m currently reading A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara which I’m loving so far. It’s exactly the kind of book I want to be reading at this time of year and I’m so intrigued to see where the narrative goes. I’ve still got a lot left to read though so I guess that’s my evening plans sorted!
consistency is key. i’m sure you have heard this in regards to almost everything.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i asked you guys last week what was the number 1 thing you struggle with most in terms of nutrition & a handful of you said being consistent. i wanted to share a couple of ways that i find helpful to stay consistent with my nutrition & exercise routine, it's nothing magical, but it works for me⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. implement a morning & evening routine. make your bed, drink some water, journal or walk your dog; whatever it is, hold yourself accountable. this is where self-discipline comes in... sometimes you have to do it even if you don't want to.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. schedule in your weekly planner, calendar, or whatever it is you use when you will do exercise. i find it helps to physically write down when i plan to go to the gym.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. plan out very roughly what you will be making for dinners during the week. i say roughly because things can change, but when you go to the grocery store, you now have somewhat of an idea of what you might need.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. batch cook! this is one of the easiest ways to make sure you are staying on track with your healthy eating goals. i don’t mean meal prep every single meal for every single day, i mean make a big soup for the week, roast up a bunch of vegetables to throw in your salads or even roast a whole chicken, so you have that at hand for quick breakfasts & lunches. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. do your very best with getting to bed at a reasonable hour & aim for 7-9 hours of sleep. i know that sounds incredibly undoable for some, but just try. sleep is your friend!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
let me know if you've tried any of these or if you have other ways you like to stay consistent!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Our littlest one - our baby, if you will - is 4 years old today. I honestly can’t believe it. I would have maybe accepted 3, but 4?! Where did this last year go? Ever a reminder for me to s l o w d o w n and focus on him and his brother and sister, because time is flying by. Our Lukey boy has a strong will, gives an equally strong and loving hug around the neck, and still demands I tuck his baby blanket tightly around him every night, making sure to cover his toes, which are increasingly starting to peek out the bottom and are unable to stay tucked. He has a sly sense of humor and the saddest slow cry when he knows he’s hurt your feelings. Also, he really loves apples. He’s a darling and we are so thankful to God for giving him to us. #momentsiwanttoremember#mybabyboy

Finally got our tree up! The kids all approved, even though we’ve always had a larger tree with every single one of our ornaments covering the tree among all the scads of multi-colored lights. This year, I just wanted something simple. And staying true to my tradition, I had the movie “White Christmas” playing while decorating it!
Missed our first big snow while we were traveling for thanksgiving, but came home to a winter wonderland ❄️

All decorated for Christmas over here! What are your plans for the upcoming holiday? 🎄🦌🎅
Winter sunset at the ruined orangery @chateaudebourneau but the fire of autumn 🍂 is still in the trees and the amber setting sun. The ruined orangery is one of my favourite locations to sit and watch nature turn. At this time of year, the air is tannic with bonfires, a crisp blue sky is a swallow’s playground and the frost is only a whisper away. I wonder how many sunsets this beautiful building has seen 🌅 over the last few hundred years? Wishing you a lovely evening
[i pensieri di una mamma]
È stata una giornata pesante che si è conclusa con un litigio dei bambini e un "basta" urlato da parte mia. È difficile fargli capire cosa è giusto o sbagliato, chi ha ragione e chi meno.
Che poi quando mi arrabbio con loro subito dopo mi dico: ma forse questa volta potevo evitarlo. Capita anche a voi?
Tra poco arriva il momento della nanna, vado a fare pace e a prendermi un tenero abbraccio al collo e mani paffutelle sul viso, il più delle volte, in questo modo, passa tutto.

slow, snowy morning activities with icy windows and winter scented candles 🌨🍂🕯🧦 i also sipped on some eggnog coffee and ate a slice of warmed pumpkin bread, it was cozy perfection! ☕️ how the grinch stole christmas is my all time favorite holiday film and the grinch is probably my favorite holiday character — i mean how can you not love him? i remember seeing this movie with my brother and parents when it first came out — and staring at the big movie screen in pure amazement, all starry eyed ✨ what’s your all favorite christmas movie? and if you want to tell me why, please feel free to do so. may the best movie win! 🎞🌲
deep in thought a lot lately about hope. because for a long time, i envisioned it as this bright + bubbly + happy emotion. but then came to realize it’s really just unwavering steadiness + being grounded into what’s true + light + sometimes heavy. it’s clinging to the light when darkness feels ever encompassing. it’s humble + it’s sacred + it’s powerful. in a season that feels overwhelming, hope is what i cling to. the truth + the light + the heaviness that teaches me more about who i am. it’s divine + i’m here for it. ✨ the learning + the stumbling + the steadiness i find in between.

I can't get enough of afternoons like this. It's not always possible but I'm trying to make time for slow moments like this during the week. I took an hour to make and enjoy this lunch of rice and avocado, cucumber, tomato, and red onion salad with a simple lemon vinaigrette instead of eating something unhealthy or skipping lunch all together. It was nice to not think about deadlines and current projects for an hour. I played my 2019 Spotify wrapped playlist and danced while I made lunch and then I sat down and enjoyed it in complete silence.
This time of year is hectic for all of us so it's crucial to make time for ourselves and our mental health. Sometimes a simple sitdown meal can make all the difference. How are you doing? How's your week going?
I hope it's treating you well 💕#showusyourhygge#cupsinframe#currentlyreading#culturetripbooks#slowandsimpledays
Seeking slow ✨ December can be so stressful so I am making sure to stay calm and enjoy the little moments like lighting the advent candle each evening.

“So please just Fall in 🧡 with me”
Se questa foto avesse un titolo sarebbe “Autunno a New York”, 💐, ma come potete immaginare non sono nella grande mela, bensì nel parco vicino a casa mia.
Saluto l’autunno così, in attesa che arrivi il periodo natalizio (che in realtà è già nell’aria e nelle vostre foto✨)
Quest’anno la stagione autunnale è letteralmente volata, tra cambiamenti, giornate spensierate e un pizzico di malinconia dettata dal cielo quasi sempre grigio. Quanto è preziosa in questo periodo una giornata di sole?
Autunno è un po’ la stagione in cui tutto scorre lento, in cui si riflette molto, per quanto mi riguarda, e ci si prende del tempo per pensare. È anche di solito la stagione dei cambiamenti, ma si può forse dire che ci sia una stagione o un momento che non ne comporti?
Anche qui, attraverso delle semplici foto, si può notare quanto il mio stile sia cambiato.
Se pensate che l’anno scorso quasi non facevo foto in cui comparivo, ora invece mi diverto a ricreare idee come questa.
Si cambia, ci si evolve, proprio come le stagioni.
Ciao autunno, per me da qui inizia l’attesa del nuovo anno.
[Ps. Sì le lucine le ho inserite davvero nell’ombrello, però con una magia - grazie Photoshop - le ho duplicate e sistemate in ogni lato🌟]

They aren't very fond of getting their paws cold, these two, but they're still curious about the snow. You can see the signs of the very short adventure in their pawprints in the snow.
Sometimes we need to be brave like my kitties and try the new, scary thing. I've tried coaching my fellow creatives these past weeks, and found it to be such a fun, inspiring and fullfilling experience. And I've seen my clients hestitate as they approach their new projects, unknown and scary, and I've seen them start to move forward through that fear.
New experiences are almost always a little (or a lot) scary. We don't get around that. But we're allowed to be our own biggest supporters, give ourselves space and judge our first wobbly steps with kindness. Or better yet, not judge them at all but accept them just as they are.
So here's to dipping your paw in the snow. Because who knows, you might just love it.❄

Привет, я Ваня. Я великий ржун и хохотун, очень пластичный, и необычный😝
Я не люблю новые темы в уроках, но люблю, когда они у меня потом получаются.
Мне 9 лет, но я решил, что я подросток. И скоро буду ходить с бородой. Папа говорит, что я уже бородатый, и ещё он называет меня чебупель, а я за это ему даю в живот своим кулаком который накачал от петрушки (петрушку я ненавижу, но сказали если ее есть, то вырастут мускулы, я съел 3 пучка)
Я обожаю свою сестричку, она такая пушистенькая, мягкая, и хохочет, когда я несусь к ней галопом через весь дом. Соседи не любят мой галоп. А я люблю. И мячик баскетбольный об пол по голове всему дому люблю)
Я ненавижу запах железа, им воняют все куртки, сумки, ключи. Фу. У меня нет ни одной вещи с железом потому, что у мамы дергается глаз, если я объясняю, что надевать это не буду. Поэтому я хожу в трико. Я мужчина в трико.
Вобщем мама тут про меня наговорила. Но мама меня очень любит. Я ее пирожок румяный, и когда вырасту буду клевым чуваком, вот ещё посмотрите ;) 😁🙈
в адвент я играю четвёртый раз 😎йоу✌️ (П.с. Джинсы на фото без молнии, они на шнурке😉)
И угадайте мой любимый цвет?)
Это я сама выполняю задание #3 Адвент-марафона☺️
Beauty everywhere 💕 Likely what makes everyone fall in love with Paris.

Carry the feeling meditation gives you throughout the day ✨
When you catch yourself being too caught up in your thoughts. Note it. Then come back to the present moment and come back to love 💗
Doing this consistently changes how your mind relates to anxiety and worry, it creates more space between you and your thoughts. 💭🧘♀️
Think of it as you’re watching your thoughts from the sidelines rather than participating in the game ✨
You become more objective, less reactive, and emotions become less fuelled by the thoughts 🌴🌴🌴
