Gratitude Journal

I am grateful for the gulping sound of Archie swallowing my breast milk, the little squeaks in between, being able to go to mums n bubs yoga at Botannix, the warmth of Damo's body against mine, getting free eggs from our chooks, Olive's eyes, Lamb on my docking station, the grass in my back yard, my friends, my family, my health.

Siesta

A moment - inspired by soulemama. A weekly ritual, a photo from the last week, capturing a beautiful, special and extraordinary moment, a moment I want to pause, remember, savour.


What's your moment from the last week? Share with me...

Archie's smile is a thousand smiles
Life's longing for itself
Born into my arms at night
Skin plump and white with health

Neck is where I bury my eyes
And drink in the smell of him
Skin so soft, my daily cream
Our youth grows deep within

Hello sweet world

So here I am with my first blog. I learn best by doing (yes, Adult Learning Principles 101) so having a go at posting today. Been faffing about with the design but have too many questions for blogger.com; perhaps I'll find my answers in time. (Anyone know how to put another whole new page on blogger, for me to write a little more about myself?)

Life doesn't get more exciting that this. Am currently on mat leave with bubba #2, Archie, who I sometimes call Bubbles. Have lots of time to think about my life and future. Lots of time to get creative - visited No Chintz and bought some pieces of fabric today! My sewing experience is varied - I took up my husband's brown AND black pants in 2005....:-). Then there's everything else I want to do and share with you - vids, photos, poetry, journalling, parenting, wifing (adj. to conduct ones affairs in the context of being married), and personal insights as I strive to lead a creative, authentic and joyful life. On top of that is my career in Learning and Development at a professional services firm, yoga, meditation and now blogging. Phew!! I hope you follow me on my journey...

I begin my blog with a weekly ritual inspired by one of my fave bloggers soulemama. A weekly ritual, a photo from the last week, capturing a beautiful, special and extraordinary moment, a moment I want to pause, remember, savour.
