Where we are rushing?⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Where I am?⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Kids always make you slow-down. And our reaction says everything about us – not them. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ What our priorities are? What do we want from our life? What we want them to be?⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I used to rush and rush them along. Now I stop more. I notice. I smile. I really listen. I am finally present. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Not always. I am perfectly imperfect. But I have my goals and priorities in line and I really try. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Now I know – not the kids needed me to slow down. It really was for my own benefit. You see the world differently. Less stressful. More enjoyable.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Kids truly bring you back to ‘real’ life if you don’t resist, or see it as an obstacle or hardship. You tune in and realize it was everything you truly needed. ♥⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #slowliving #slowlife #slowmotherhood #slowmothering #simplifiedlife #lifewithkids #simplifiedmotherhood #simpleliving #liveslow #notice #presentparenting #presentparent

Here’s a sneak peak at one of the three villes I toured while in France. Nevers is located about 150 miles south of Paris and is in the Burgundy region of France. It’s a sleepy town and has a population around 35,000. I went to the pizza place in this picture, Le Florentin and it was fantastic. at Nevers

The trio! These women were pros at adding their own personal style to all their looks which made the photoshoot so fun! I love seeing how pieces can change just by who’s wearing it, and how they wear it. Truly bringing the clothes to life! ✨ . Ruth is wearing the June Jumper in a dark grey corduroy. Dionne is wearing the Chelsea Tunic in railroad stripe denim. Quinn is wearing the Norah Top in a navy cotton. .

Just waiting for these walls to talk. Until then, have a look at our latest curated castle rental finds (link in bio!) It’s not hard to live like royalty. You just have to find an open chateau first 😉.

Guilt from parting ways with gifts I’ve received has been consuming me lately. ⁣ ⁣ We’re getting ready to move to a new house next week so for the past month I’ve been decluttering all our belongings room by room, forcing me to actually deal with some gifts I’ve received but don’t add value to my life. ⁣ ⁣ I believe @thelaminimalist posted this a while ago and I came across it recently. This has helped me deal with some of this guilt I’ve been feeling about letting go of those gifts. ⁣ ⁣ Another thing that helps is thinking about someone else enjoying something that I just hide away in a closet. ⁣ _______________________________________⁣ ⁣ What helps you deal with the guilt of decluttering gifts you’ve received? at Sarasota, Florida

I’ve been reading a lot lately, researching for my masters dissertation. I’ve also got into a naughty habit of writing all over my books 👀 — Saying this, I remember finding my mums old uni books full of notes and there was something really special about it. So maybe it’s ok after all? at Liverpool

These have been one of Fin’s treats. You’d often hear me say “oh just let her live a little” 🤣🤦🏼‍♀️ cause she doesn’t eat gluten or dairy she misses out on the “fun” food, so I thought surely a marshmallow (or 4) would be quite harmless. ⠀ •⠀ Turns out, there’s 1 tsp of sugar in each marshmallow. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but that’s 4 or so in one setting (she’d eat the whole bag if she could 🤦🏼‍♀️). And even then, maybe you’re thinking ‘meh, it’s still not THAT bad’ - kids are only meant to have a max of 6 tsp a day* (not including fruit sugars)⠀ •⠀ It adds up pretty quick! 🙈 we’re currently day 3 of no marshmallows 🤣🤣 it actually hasn’t gone too badly getting rid of them! ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ * I’ve read a few sources about how much the max sugar is that kids should have - none seem to agree but range between 3-6tsp max a day.

Propagating these scallions indoors as I had no room left in my elevated beds to plant some 🌱 It’s remarkable how quickly they’re growing, and how prominent their scent is, too!! Propagating is a very easy way to minimize food waste - at least with veg that you’re able to do it with 🥬 Celery and fennel, a variety of lettuces, leeks, and scallions all propagate wonderfully to name a few!! at Arizona

New “Day in the life of..” blog post with Devon from @mermaidsightings 🧜🏼‍♀️ As someone who set out to design and make linen dresses one hot day in 2014, I didn’t realize that what would come with that ambition was a community of people who motivate and inspire me daily, and not only that, but rally around to support each other, talking not just dresses, but lifestyle, parenting, education, jobs and anything else. I’ve heard from folk who tell what we have in the P&S community is rare. It’s authentic & heartwarming.❤️ Swipe to see more snaps of Devon! Last image from @elise_crigar

Morning pages. Three pages [on a good day] of stream of consciousness, free writing upon waking meant to open up the mind for creative work. A clearing of the “mental cobwebs” and to-dos at the start of the day. If you’ve never tried this, I highly fucking recommend it, and here’s why… - I’m not sure when it happened, but these 3 pages became something so much bigger than what they were intended for, for me. I began examining my dreams, my thoughts, my emotions...myself. Writing every morning became my lifeline and in that process, I became my own therapist—uncovering and healing old wounds, hurts, and anger. Anytime I’ve had the instinct or urge to shut down or close or harden, it showed me another way and allowed me to keep my heart and mind open. - Through these pages [and a consistent meditation practice] I got to really know myself in a way I never knew I could. It became a mirror of who I showed up as every day, for me and for those around me. I found my voice. But most importantly, it's kept me off the ledge [both literal and metaphorical] on more than one occasion, and brought me home any time the noise of life got too loud. A vital component in my mental health journey. - I will forever be grateful to baby Jess who felt pulled to that copy of the Artist’s Way in college. And for her curiosity and willingness to finally be vulnerable within the safety and quiet of those pages—something she was never able to do in a therapist’s office. Because of her, I’m still here. A stronger, more empathetic, self-aware, and kinder human. - Because of these fresh pages I encounter every morning, I am reminded that I can always begin again. That there is beauty, even in the breakdowns. And that this, and every day, is a blessing. 🗝 at New York, New York

Oh hi 👋 I’m Beth. I thought I’d do a little introduction again since I haven’t done one in a while. I’m a woodworker. Self employed. One woman show. I’m self taught and super stubborn. So when I set out to teach myself how to use the lathe, I was using the worst tools, a terribly old and shaky lathe, and terrible technique. I know better now. I also taught myself how to carve. With lots of cuts along the way. ➰ I just went full time with woodworking about a month ago after spending 15 years in social work. ➰ I’m building a cabin retreat with my husband, which will be ready to rent this summer ☀️ ➰ I have an affinity to dreaming up new projects and things to try. To a fault. I have a notebook full of ideas and businesses that I want to start, and I don’t have enough time to do it all. ➰ I’m addicted to Cadbury mini eggs and pizza. Not kidding. I quit smoking about 6 months ago and completely replaced nicotine with mini eggs and pizza. But I also just started exercising again, so like, that’s called balance, right? 💁 . . . . . . . #woodworking #madeincanada #folkgood #liveslow #aquietstyle #handmade #madebyhand #homedecor #kinfolk #wabisabi #minimalism #thatsdarling #handcrafted #makersmovement #buyhandmade #craftswoman #creativehappylife #woodturning #handmadehome #theartofslowliving #livethelittlethings #oneofakind #woodcarving #tastemadehome #makersworkshop #creativityfound #woodisgood #verilymoment #neverstopcreating #thehappynow at Peterborough, Ontario

My partner’s grandfather painted this captivating portrait of a salty sea dog and I love it. By all accounts he was an excellent man and I wish I’d met him. In #todaysknitoutfit I’m wearing the Soldotna crop by @boylandknitworks in some of my yarns and some of other people’s yarns. I feel as tired as I look. Our lives are made of connections.

My plan tonight after I get back from the gym is plant until I need a head lamp. The temps are rising fast (it was in the 80s today), and the greenhouses will just be too hot soon to keep anything alive. I’m excited to get my hands dirty! 💚🌱 The chickens are in the dry beds now taking a bath. Once I have the seedlings in I will keep the beds covered while the 🐓 are free ranging so they don’t dig up the vegetables. And once the plants are established they won’t get in there. #hawriverhomestead at Haw River, North Carolina

Well, I feel like a fool. No sooner than I took a video of my cherry tree humming with bees than one got stuck in the back of my shirt and stung me. They are everywhere in our yard right now so we’re hanging inside for a bit with the windows open, listening to our friend Johnny Cash and dyeing some eggs with beets, chili powder + paprika, and turmeric. I ran out of hard boiled eggs and tried boiling eggs in blueberry juice and vinegar but I forgot about them and when I went back, the whole shell had disintegrated. Oops. That’s science for you, I guess! Have you dyed your eggs yet? . . #dyedeggs #naturallydyedeggs #eastereggs #eggdying #eggdyeing #eastercrafts #eastercraft #liveslow #motherhoodsimplified #thehappynow

...from a few weeks ago, when we went to forage for our first batch of wild garlic. now it is in full bloom, and we came back several times since, to refill our basket. love to flow with the seasons, also culinary wise. and so wild garlic pesto is high on our list these past days and weeks. funnily enough, the kids looooove it! the recipe for the pesto i‘m sharing below is for wild garlic, but as the seasons will change i‘m gonna try it with spinach, ruccola - and basil, of course! . WILD GARLIC PESTO . 100g fresh wild garlic 50g pine nuts 50g parmesan, grated 1.5 dl olive oil 1/2 tbsp salt pepper, to taste . wash the wild garlic, and in a food processor mix it together with the other ingredients until you have a creamy paste. fill into jar(s) and cover with some more olive oil. . #foraging #foragerskitchen #wildgarlic #pesto #seasonaleating #staywild #liveslow at Reichenbach, Bern, Switzerland

The blossoms have finally popped in my neighborhood! 🌸 My husband and I took a long walk the other day to see all these little jewels that have exploded in color around us. What a nice slow activity that walk was.... ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Slowly and mindfully walking around, simply gazing at the beauty that surrounded us. No deep thinking, not much talking, just being in the present moment and enjoying it for what it was. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ These delicate blossoms represent a handful of very important life lessons. Lessons rooted in mindfulness and wisdom that connect us inextricably to our natural world. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I wrote about this symbolism on a recent blog post. Blossoms: Lessons from a Garden. Link is in my profile to check it out. Have a beautiful day, friends! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #nature_brilliance #naturalistatheart #liveslow #connectedtonature #embracetheseasons #seasonalliving #myalmanacmoment #gloomandglow #livethelittlethings #littlestoriesofmylife #calmversation #pursuepretty #lifeunscripted #mindfuliving #poetryofsimplethings #capturedquiet #seasonspoetry #quietinthewild #allwhatsbeautiful #artofbeingpresent #liveilluminated #myilluminatedlife #dslooking #moodygrams #lifeandthyme #yayforearth #livewiththeland #gardeninginspo #springblossoms #gardeningblogger at Granite, Utah

What a lovely spring day, with lovely weather 🌼 . We’ve had a busy day today! Morning with her little friends getting messy at Kids Kitchen making Easter nest cakes. Then an afternoon at the farm filled with picnics, ponies, Easter trails and finished up winning her Easter egg 🐣 . Our mood was definitely lifted by the sunny change in weather and finally being able to get outdoors because of that. Couldn’t think of a better day for the #springhashtagchallenge {breathe} with @littlepaperswan @edinburghwithkids getting out in the fresh air for a day at the farm 🌿

After a hectic weekend in London for @thelondonartisan we've had a rare two days off and it's been such a simple pleasure just to spend some time in the garden. We now have things growing ready for summer! We're always hesitant to chuck anything away in the garden in case it might be of use (borderline hoarder 🙋‍♀️) and this bowl came from a section of Sycamore tree left behind a shed! We don't think the spalting happened in the tree but when it was sat on the earth and left to rot - luckily it was rescued and dried before it went too far!

Anybody else love cozying up with a bunch of blankets? 🙋 I sure do, and the softer the better. Did you know that most of the plush blankets for sale these days are actually a form of plastic? And every time these get washed they release microplastics into the water stream. So, in knowing that, we've been trying to swap our linens, blankets, and clothing to natural materials. Predominantly through thrifting. However, did you know that mainstream cotton is extremely resource intensive and is commonly produced with the use of harmful pesticides (which also increases water use in production). So, when we moved I finally decided we could use some more blankets (we have used the same cotton quilt exclusively since we got married and it could stand to have something to rotate out with). We opted for organic cotton, handwoven blankets found via @etsy from @organicturkishtowels. Organic cotton is less resource intensive and is known for being softer. And yes, I did get these shipped from Turkey rather than buying local, hey you do the best you can to check off all the marks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Long story short: Shop secondhand and utilize resources that have already been manufactured. And if you're gonna buy new, consider the materials the item use and consider organic cotton over regular. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks for reading folks, that turned into a saga. 💙🙈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . . . . . . . . . . #cotton #organic #organiccotton #naturalmaterials #blankets #getcozy #cozyup #liveslow #thatsdarling #zerowaste #packagefree #lowimpact #globalstyleglobalgood #ethicalliving #sustainability #fairtrade #holisticliving #pursuingfelicity #langleyliving #turkishtowel #pnw
