Garlic at this time of the year is a little bit iffy, being that it’s hard to get a really good one. Recently, on my foodie travels I spotted these and immediately thought they would look a bit cute in our kitchen. But as well as looking pretty, they’re serving a medicinal purpose since I’ve been feeling decidedly below average these past couple of days. Here’s to no ills and chills, no vampires or anyone in my general vicinity . . . . .   #seasonsofmay     #eatmoremagic     #calledtobecreative     #simpleandstill     #dayofsmallthings     #capturequiet     #seekinspirecreate     #aquietstyle     #lifeandthyme     #onmytable     #eatsimply     #nutritiousanddelicious     #plantbased     #chasinglight     #garlic     #madewithlove     #garliccloves     #wellingtonfoodphotographer     #makeitdelicious     #bonappetit     #wellingtonfoodstylist     #calmversation     #pocketsofmyhome     #simpledishes     #inmykitchen     #theartofslowliving     #foodphotography     #eatwellbewell     #foodstyling     #simplicity

Garden baby // 👶🏻🌱 • Do you have a garden? I am by no means a professional gardener (I’ve been trying for literal years and have just now been able to successfully grow anything lol) but lately I’ve been bringing Penelope outside with me every morning to water the plants & harvest any tiny crops that may have sprung up overnight. 🌾 (Today we picked four strawberries! Which she then ate and LOVED 😍🍓) • I can’t wait until she’s a bit older so she & I can grow a giant garden & fulfill my lofty dreams of growing all our food 🌱 (sorry jason, it’s comin’ up all fruits & veg from here 🙅🏻‍♂️💁🏼‍♀️)

I like hanging on to old magazines for the express purpose of this little hobby of mine: Collage art. It's just so different than all my other creative endeavors. I love the tangible feel of it, working with colors schemes, putting together scraps of paper and images to convey a certain mood...⠀ Gothic is the theme for this latest piece. I've been reading a lot of Phyllis A. Whitney lately. Her books to me are a sort of a cross between Victoria Holt's "new Gothic" and Mary Stewart's romantic suspense. The best of both worlds. :)⠀ .⠀ .⠀   #Day21VintageSummer2019     #VintageSummerChallenge2019  ⠀   @faces  _and_style⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀   #solovelysofree     #asecondofwhimsey     #calmversation     #smallmomentsofcalm     #pursuewhatislovely     #artofslowliving     #styleonstillness     #ofquietmoments     #simpleandstill     #imbringingsimpleback     #slowlivingforlife     #bookstoinspire     #mybookfeatures     #readerslife     #bookflatlay     #bookishlife     #bookishallure     #readingismagic     #capturequiet     #seekingbeautyamidstthemundane     #myseasonalstory     #collage  _guild   #gothicromance     #gothicfiction     #beautifulbooks     #phyllisawhitney     #still  _life_creativeframes   #timeforcreativesouls

Tonight’s Harvest • • When we bought our house in March, we had no idea there were fruit trees on our property! As the seasons have changed, it’s been such an adventure to discover what things are growing here. Come to find out, we have apple, cherry, pear, and plum trees! 😲 • • I have never had much of a green thumb, and I couldn’t imagine what the heck we were going to do with a half an acre of land, but it’s been a magical experience to watch Wes pull ripe tomatoes off the vine and eat them, juice and seeds dripping down his juicy little chin, making plum tortes with fruit from our tree, and appreciating what our Earth is capable of.

(1/2) "There is a lot of oddness in this city" says my friend Marie, whom I meet at the playground almost daily. She is Canadian, who spent most of her life in Montreal, so she knows what she is talking about 😀 I see it daily, people with green hair, purple hair, "mop-like hair", full body female hair, u name it hair 😀... . . . .   #lifeofaphotographer     #destinationphotographer     #dailydoseofcolor     #photographylife     #thatauthenthicfeeling     #thelifestyle     #theartofslowliving     #simpleandstill     #stillswithstories     #streetmagazine     #streetshot     #timeless  _streets   #urbanstreetphotography     #passportexpress     #roamtheplanet     #stayandwander     #tasteintravel     #travel     #traveldeeper     #travelawesome     #travelnow     #travelon     #travelstoke     #wonderful  _places   #welltravelled     #worlderlust     #travelgram     #instapassport     #passionpassport     #lonelyplanet

Spa nights to soak Nick's broken and battered body 🤕...haha poor love of mine ❤️🥰 He's been busy with work and trying to relax when he can. We have a couple holidays coming up and he's worried he won't heal in time for them 😞 Cross fingers for us! . Yesterday I took my Kindle with me and read a short and interesting book for   #motivationalmonday   called "How to Fight a Hydra". If you want to read something inspiring but different to a traditional self-help book, it's a good one to try! It's written as fiction, like an old legend and adventure story, but the principles are the same, and I read it in only an hour. It was short and sweet! . Tonight, instead of going to the hot tub we finished   #strangerthingsseason3   over dinner and talked about our travel plans for next year! What's something relaxing you're doing for yourself this week? . . . . .   #spa     #hottub     #spanights     #relaxing     #outdoors     #sunset     #betterforit     #stillness     #feelingcentered     #zoningout     #meditation     #positiveliving     #positivevibes     #enjoythelittlethings     #makeitblissful     #momentsofmine     #simpleandstill     #selfloveclub     #amreading     #waterproofkindle     #readingoutdoors     #gettinglostinabook     #personaldevelopment     #productivitybooks     #booknerdigans     #readerscorner     #readersareleaders     #calmnights

Sunset mood. ⠀ Каждый день (кроме двух🌧) солнце скрывалось за горами, золотой свет покрывал сначала всю бухту, затем плавно переносился на горы, а затем уже на их вершины. Конец.

One of our favorite things is seeing how glazes look in direct sunlight ☀️ We love how it brings out the subtle undertones and sparkles that you can’t see inside!

Lunch and learn. Every single day. I give them lunch and they run for a book to read while they eat. I’m not sure where it started - but it’s been this way as long as I can remember. Even before they could read any words on their own, they’d have a stack of books next to their plate. Don’t even think about talking to them during lunch, unless it’s about the book they’re reading.

Oh, Moses. Moses. Moses. Moses. The guy who had so many objections with God. “I can’t speak well enough.” “I’m not a good leader.” “No one will listen to me.” All the objections & excuses in the book and I just imagine God continually saying, “AND?!” “so what if you can’t speak well enough, I got you.” “AND?! So what if you don’t think no one will care about what you have to say, I’ll make sure they have no other option but to take a second look.” “AND?! So what if you feel like you can’t lead these people, I’ll show you how.” I mean with every single objection, God assures Moses that it’s okay to have all these excuses, insecurities and fears. All Moses needed to do was to show up and God handle the rest. Isn’t it so silly to read his story & know that Moses had alllll the excuses not to and God was like, “AND? JUST SHOW UP.” & I know he didn’t just say that to Moses but that he’s saying that to so many of you! Don’t allow your own fears or insecurities keep you from doing the exact thing God is calling you to do. Whatever God has been tugging at your heart with, it’s for a reason! Can you imagine if Moses never showed up?! How many people would’ve continued to suffer. Now, imagine if you don’t show up. There are people whom you don’t even know yet but who NEED you to show up. You never know who you can inspire to live boldly simply from making that bold choice to step out of fear. Let’s stop coming up with the million and one excuses and choose to listen to Him, show up, go and do what God is asking & see how with that simple decision + action, how we can begin impacting & blessing others lives. We need YOU to simply show up ❤️

Rockabye baby Or your four year old, or your six year old, or all alone. I find it very soothing to rock and it's probably because this rocking chair has been in my family for five generations. It's one of the places I can sit and have a quiet moment to center myself. I like to think about all the other people in my family who have also been rocked in this chair. I think about their life journeys and experiences and all the stories we come together to share with each other. This chair has had a full, blessed life and so have I. Find the joy in life every day.
