It’s a bit grey here outside this morning but the weather is saying the sun will make an appearance. Just incase it doesn’t here are some cheery sunflowers to brighten your morning cuppa... we are off out on an adventure today and hopefully there will be no weeing in shops (see stories) •

Ok so I keep referring to ‘these last 3 (except now 4!) years,’ which basically came as the result of a breakup that changed the course of things, ya know, as breakups typically do 🤷🏼‍♀️
.
Anyway, in that time I’ve learned a LOT. About the world, about myself, yada yada.. But one of the most important things I’ve learned in studying the psychology of the mind, and the subconscious, and the metaphysical laws of our universe is this: surrender is key 🙌🏼 And it’s something you hear all the time (well, in my world I was always hearing it, I don’t know lol) but you just roll your eyes at it and keep stressing away. But MAN, every single time I do surrender, the outcome is a positive one.
.
For someone who only recently learned to manage her control freak ways, surrender was a word that was never in my vocabulary. But now I can talk myself off any ledge if I remember how well it always goes when I just throw it up and take a step back. Sometimes though, like today, it took me way too long to remember. Darn it 🤨 Old habits die hard 🤷🏼‍♀️😜😉

So we went for the basic of the basic bread baking today and i was surprised at how easy it was. I don’t have a loaf tin big enough so we went for a round loaf. It is flatter than I thought but it tastes sooooo good and the kids have given it a 9.5 out of 10 🙌🏼

Needed some Cornish sunshine in my feed today. How was your weekend? We spent ours working on our hallway, it’s almost ready for painting! Today I’ll be working on @littlenestbox orders from the weekend. Have a good week everyone!

Живем в таком прекрасном доме посреди идиллических пейзажей, что все время плачем. Где люди берут деньги на такой дом? Как заработать на такой дом? Нам надо. На старость. А Мот бы внуков на каникулы присылал, прогуливала бы их в Черном лесу

Anyone else feeling anxious about the return of autumn after all the rain over the weekend? I know lots of people are glad of the heatwave respite but for me it was a chilly reminder of the darkness of last winter and even though summer isn’t over yet I can’t shake the feelings of anxiety that the grey days create for me. Last winter I was in the midst of wrestling with utter gratitude for my little joy floof and the gnarly grip of PND. Birth trauma, feeding problems, reflux and failure to thrive, plus trying to work & settle into a new home just knocked me sideways & combined with short, dark, cold & soggy days it was not a good time. We’ve loved the spring & summer so much & the return of winter gives me more than the chills. I don’t want to go back there again! Any tips for coping with winter blues so I can prepare myself? How do we get through it on a shoestring budget and see next May with both happy Mama and happy baby? 😬 #sendhelp #pnd #postnataldepression #loneliness #postpartum #mamamentalhealth #maternalmentalhealth #mentalmutha #youokhun #fourthtrimester #sunlovers #summerloving #lucky #heatwave #herecomesthesun #babyandi #winteriscoming #imnotapessimist #liveinthepresent #tryingmybest #smiling #lookforthelight #silverlinings #alwayslookonthebrightside

Back home in Blighty and starting the week with memories of beaches and blue skies. I worked a little each morning of my holidays so easing back into it today isn’t quite such a leap. But I am rather missing the sea view from my laptop. Have a great week all 🖤

Sunset reminds me that God bookends the day, showing his glory & majesty in the skies. And tucks us in each night with the colors of his love, no matter how the day went. He says we are held. #sunset #truth #Godwinks #Godsglory #hope #weareheld #reflections #savorthejourney #lookforthelight

HAVE YOU EATEN TODAY?
John 6:35,41-51

Jesus is the bread of life. Come to Him and never go hungry again.

This morning, my family stepped into a church again! The first time in well over two years (I think so anyway). It felt really good to worship with others. The people were very welcoming and the message was spot on. Basically, Jesus offers us a deal: we believe in Him, and He gives us eternal life. The problem is this thing called doubt. We all have doubt. Faith, therefore, is needed for us to believe in Christ. (That's the very paraphrased version of the message). The speaker was real and not afraid to admit that he himself had many doubts. In looking for proof, tho, one can over rationalize God. It doesn't have to be that complicated. Just believe. Find your reason to believe in Christ.

There is peace, and joy, and comfort here.

God is gracious. He has given me a wonderful park where I can ride a myriad of trails to my heart's content. It is a beautiful park. His creation is alive and surrounds me with praises to the One who saves. It can't get better than that.

7.19 miles today, and it felt great!

I've been trying to find the words to wrap around what happened.

On Tuesday my sweet baby stopped breathing and became unresponsive. We were taken to the hospital by ambulance and life flighted to a children's hospital nearby. I can honestly say I've never been so scared in my entire life. There were moments where I thought it might be the last time I'd get to hold my sweet baby's hand.

At one point, when the situation was at it's worst, I finally just had to release her to Him. There was nothing else I could do. So I simply prayed: Father, either way. No matter what happens, she's yours. You love her even more than I do. And I trust you to care for her as only you can.

Praise Jesus our baby is safe and sound in her crib here at home. I'm still amazed at all the little and big ways He showed up. He provided so many opportunities to reveal His love and character to everyone we came across.

He filled me with the most amazing peace and allowed this usually overly anxious Mama to stand tall and strong in the face of her greatest fear. His power truly is made greater in our weakness.

Look for more words and thoughts about our experience coming to the blog soon. Until then, I'll be holding my baby extra close and showering her with "I love you"s.

This has been my Creative Oasis Mantra for the week. 🦋The super cool heemeesheemee is that I created this graphic and shared it with my Creative Oasis Collective on Monday and on Wednesday afternoon when I visited @goodworkus for a class with @thechiefeternaloptimist - this was the message that greeted me on their little welcome marquee! 💙 (You can see the photo in my Thursday post.) ⚡️ I just love it when the universe sends me big neon signs that I’m on the right path! 💙 (Or in this case - a little plastic sign. 😉) But still a powerful affirmation! 🦋 Guess what! ✨ YOU GOT THIS TOO! 🤗 Wishing you s day filled with delightfully doable Creative Oasis Moments that make your heart sing and time fly! 🦋 #creativeoasis #creativityeverywhere #magiceverywhere #seethesigns #creativeoasismoment #creativeoasismantra #youvegotthis #dallascreatives #livingacreativelife #creativejoy #delightfullydoable #deepbreaths #smallsteps #chchchchanges #lookforthelight #letloverule #sayyestoyou

Я увидела дом и вскрикнула. От красоты. Даже остановилась. Увитое плющем старинное здание со ставенками утопало в розовом саду. Тут и там к кормушкам, подвешенным к ветвям деревьев, подлетали птички. Какая-то сказка.
Хозяйка, молодая девушка, которая привязывала к машине плетеные стулья, тоже вскрикнула - от удивления.
- Очень у Вас красиво, - объяснила я. И покопалась в своем бедном немецком словаре, - ausgezeichnet.
- O, - улыбнулась она, просияв, - так заходите.
Я оглянулась - ребята убежали далеко вперед. Мы с фотоаппаратом всегда отстаем и теряемся. - это ужасно мило. Когда-нибудь в другой раз.
Так я не побывала в гостях у феи.

Saturday afternoon gloriousness. “Look, up at the sky. There is a light, a beauty up there, that no shadow can touch” J. R. R. Tolkien
When I look up I feel....
Calmness. Gratitude. Relief. It changes depending on what I was looking up from.

Too often we think of a miracle as being something big, but that is rarely the case!! It is a butterfly coming out of its cocoon. It is running into a good friend just when you need that pick-me-up, and its the sound of laughter and pride when your daughter figures out that she can swing ALL BY HERSELF! (I know this firsthand! LOL)

It doesn't have to be big to be miraculous...its the small things that we often miss in our day to day business, so take the time to pause and look for the miracles every day! When we take the time to look for them, we WILL start to see them everywhere!

Ну что - я держу свое слово: привезла прохладу. На улице +18 и дождь. Царевна-лягушка тоже рада. Вызывайте, если что, только дорогу оплатите.

A 30-second example of Creative Oasis Moment for me - making a thank you card for a friend, singing along to James Taylor and feeling something close to bliss, and for sure the most relaxed I’ve felt all day. I’ll share lots of delightfully doable ways to enjoy more Creative Oasis Moments in your life in my fall classes, workshops and retreats.
