Currently listening to this jam:
I can't believe we've lived a 35 minute drive from Boxhill National Trust for five years, and we've only just visited this place.
What a gorgeous, serene space, and the View Point very much lives up to the hype.
The kite Kenny insisted I buy Ava ages ago, finally had a chance to kiss the skies, and he threw himself into his father-daughter kite flying lesson with such gusto that I got the funny feeling this flighty purchase was more for him than her. I enjoyed snuggles in the sun with our not so new newborn, drinking in the stunning views and the crisp fresh air.
Lately I've been working hard to retain the things that help me to feel like me. Not Bianca the daughter, wife or mother, but just the me I know when I look in the mirror. It's been hard to feel like that person when you are so many other things to other people most of the time, but I've been seeing that the time I need to remember isn't so much about quantity but quality. What I mean is that I've found that a few moments a day, or a week outside of my usual routines are enough to remind me of who I am when my various roles are stripped away. A soak in an Epsom salts bath with a devotional or book, colouring in my adult colouring book, or catching up on my favourite shows, are great me moments. But the thing that has been like OXYGEN in this season, is any and every opportunity to create. This month has been so fun to create a couple websites for creatives around me, and I'm in the midst of creative director duties for a couple of fashion labels I'm working with. Also been dreaming up a few goodies surrounding the album release, and just letting the imagination run wild...fun fun fun!
I ADORE my little family, and the life Hubs and I are building. Ava is at the funniest age, where she says the cutest things at the best times; I just love the way she says words incorrectly...it'll be a sad day when she looses her toddler speak. And Liora at five months, is at the age I just love the most! Where her favourite thing is snuggles and when everything mummy says and does is sooooo hilarious!
I just love them so very much, but it really makes life sweeter when I get to step away from time to time to relax and unwind. It's even more thrilling when, on occasion I get to say yes to my deepest, most sacred desire...the desire to create.
