[ad] Monday morning planning session with a new journal and stationary from @mylifehandmademlh 📓🍂 My Life Handmade is all about mindfulness and creativity— spending even just a few minutes a day to take some time to refocus ourselves. They have a beautiful range of sustainably made products that help to achieve this. You can head over to their website through the link in my bio. ✨ I thought I’d use my new journal to start with some travel planning for 2020— have you got anything planned for the new year already?
Making some time on this rainy Thursday afternoon to pick up the books I’m currently reading & always feeling very thankful I get the chance to take some time out 🌧🍂 I’m still making my way through Uprooted and I’m still really unsure what to make of it yet but I’ll definitely let you know what I think when I’m done 🙌🏼 Are you reading anything good at the moment? I’m already wanting to make a list for next year so I’d love to hear about your recent favourite books!

I really enjoy editing pictures of me by myself and improving my "skills" a bit lately. Not because I think retouch is necessary but I love to learn something new and it is a way of being creative for me. ☀️ What was the last thing you tried out for the first time? // photo @andreas.schmidt.photography - edited by me

A few weeks back I discovered @nightzookeeper in a homeschool group and decided to try it out. Laramie has been so in love with it. She creates her own characters and fun stories to go along with them. It’s been such a great addition to our daily schooling. #NZKSuperfan
We all know those people who are hard to shop for so you just end up giving them money for Christmas. 🎄 This DIY is super easy to put together and the tutorial is #ontheblog via the link in my bio in the “Christmas” post category! 👉🏻

Sorry it’s been over a month since I last posted my friends. It’s been quite an emotional set of weeks. My family has been going through some truly terrifying medical issues, my husband has been out of work for months and mentally I just haven’t been in the best place. .
It’s been a test of God to keep going forward each day these past few months without feeling completely lost. Pregnant, exhausted, worrying about everything and everyone takes its toll. With the new year approaching comes new changes and I’m praying that everything comes together. .
My little one went through a small phase of wanting nothing to do with me, wanting only her daddy and it hurt down to my bones. With him being home and her main caretaker it makes sense she’s so attached to him. But it’s hard to not feel rejected and dejected when you’re already suffering with depression. .
However she has been warming up to me again the last week or so. Wanting me. And I’m soaking up as much as I can. She brings joy to my heart no matter what. I hope she knows how much I love her. .
I will begin posting again soon. Those who stuck around, thank you for your patience. I hope your holiday season has been a good one so far.
