Self-care: a list

Saturday, March 3, 2018

Self-care: it’s a thing. Admittedly it’s not a thing that I am very good at, but recently I have been working on this as it became very evident I was falling short in this area. For many, many years I have been either trying to get pregnant, suffering through miscarriages, nourishing pregnancies, carrying babies, delivering babies, breastfeeding babies, dealing with postpartum changes, tending to babies, raising small children and every teeny, tiny thing that goes along with this season of life. It is the best. It is my favorite. It is everything that I have ever longed for.

One of my goals for the new year is to use my Chemex more (see my blog post here). I loooooooove my Chemex, but since having kids I usually opt for the speed and convenience of my regular old coffee pot much more. But the coffee is so rich and flavorful using the Chemex,  you just can't beat it.

Plans. I'm a planner. And while I am not usually one for new years resolutions, I do appreciate any opportunity to step back and evaluate needs, desires and future goals. This weekend while we sipped our early morning coffee together, Brian and I talked about our vision for this coming year and some of the things we would like to do/see/experience/work towards/etc. It is nearing the end of January after all... what?! how?!

"waiting for papa" smoothies

Friday, January 19, 2018

I’ve partnered with Dole to share one of the many ways we are staying healthy this year, making smoothies with the kids! Not only do they love picking out what they want in theirs (you really can’t go wrong) and throwing them into the blender, I love watching them slurp down all those fruits and veggies. Smoothies are the perfect answer to that weird time in between getting home from work and daycare, but still hours before dinner time. It keeps their tummies full and they have a delicious snack while they wait for papa to come home from work. Today we mixed up some of the Dole pineapple peach apple mixations with a banana, almond milk, strawberries, a scoop of almond butter, some kale that I threw in while they weren’t looking and a splash of canned pineapple juice.

Well, here we are. Christmas has come and gone and a new year is upon us. It doesn't seem possible how fast time moves these days. Today we took down all of our Christmas decor and while everything feels clean and fresh and new, it's a bit sad too, so I'm grateful to have captured so many moments from this season.
