Have you ever moved to a place you’ve never been before and it feel immediately like home upon arrival? I can now say that I have and it has been so unexpected. 🖤

Trouble in paradise? 🤔🐛🙄🌱 ⠀⠀ It’s been quite a ride since I arrived at @utopiaecohotel, a remote spot in the jungle where I’ve come to teach daily yoga classes to guests for a month. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve been dealing with head lice (yes, for real!) together with people’s reactions of horror and disgust, intense pain in my back which I think was a trapped nerve, leaving me immobilised in bed for two days, and to top it off the WiFi was broken for a week. Absolutely no choice but to slow right down! Can I stay calm and present and stable even in the face of challenge? (Answer: sometimes!) This is yoga off the mat! 😉 ⠀⠀ I’m so grateful for the two angels that brought food to my bed, gave me Reiki and love, and kept me company while I couldn’t move - @raficita88. I’m used to feeling so free and expressive in my body and it was a shock to suddenly be so restricted and impaired. Thank goodness my body found a way to heal itself and I’m able to practice and teach again. Oh and enjoy the delights of the Cabanon River! 😜💦 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #troubleinparadise #slowingdown #lettinggo #thankyou #junglelife #littlecreatures #newchapter #selfhealing #travellingyogi #yogaonandoffthemat #bodygratitude #bodyhealth #aslowmoment #embracingaslowerlife #littlestoriesofmylife #simpleandstill #moustache #iamwellandgood #yogisofinstagram #yogalife #guatemala #semucchampey

Is there anything better than fresh baked cookies? It’s been a minute since I’ve baked and I forgot how much it relaxes me. ⠀⠀ Baking is so finicky! So many things can go wrong by just adding a little too much of an ingredient. Which made me think about how true that is about life. Too much work? Exhausted. Too much play? Unfulfilled. Too much laying around? Depressed. It is so important to keep every aspect of life in balance. Often I need to take a step back to see where I’m over focused and under focused in life. ⠀⠀ What helps keep you balanced? ⠀⠀ #cornersofmyworld #bloggerlife #everysquareastory #darlingdaily #lifestyleblog #lifestyleblogger #lifestylebloggers #lifeunscripted #nothingisordinary #personalblog #reclaimthehappy #seeksimplicity #thatsdarling #growthmindset #personalgrowth #positiveliving #selfgrowth #selftalk #thinkhappythoughts #staypositive #choosejoy #embracingaslowerlife #littlestoriesofmylife #livethelittlethings #makeitblissful #momentsofmine #myquietbeauty #nontoxicliving #nourishyourself #organiclifestyle

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE LITTLEST MAN CUB IN THE PACK!! His addition to our little family is more special than I can express. Each day I am gifted the ability to see the exquisite beauty in things I would normally see as commonplace. I learn the art of patience, and of grace. His capacity to be grateful for even the smallest of things leaves me in awe on the daily. Be it carrying around and sleeping with the first birthday card he received because he appreciates it so much, or genuinely appreciating a round of Happy Birthday sung by his big brother and mamabear in a simple celebration of his birth-day. And I am truly honoured to witness the special bond growing year by year between my two precious man cubs. Together, they are slowly carving out THEIR definition of Brotherhood. I catch myself smiling in awe of their interactions and know that, without a doubt, our lives have been enhanced with Darrow in it. HAPPY 6TH BIRTHDAY, DARROW!!! Never change. Love Mom, big brother Zander, and the rest of the fur family. Xoxo 🎂🎁🎈🎉 #autismfamily #adoptionjourney #singleadoptivemom

Getting the bits and baubles out this evening ...

It’s been awhile since I’ve felt like picking up a camera. I’ve been counterbalancing the intensity of work as I mark the days until holiday begins, and on the home front our living room is in a jumble owing to water damage which—fingers crossed—should soon be fixed. So I’ve been checking in on favourite accounts here and reigning in the absent-minded scrolling (well, mostly). The end of the year feels rushed and somehow without urgency all at the same time. I haven’t done any Christmas shopping at all and haven’t felt the least bit swept up in the frenzy of needing to do so. SO, happy December, friends! I hope there are places and spaces in which your hearts feel light.

•Silenziosamente costruire• Calendario dell’avvento #gioiedinatale• {giorno 8 #hoquestacosaconilnatale} “Faccio pensieri bruttissimi” “Tipo?” “Che campo a fare?” “Perché hai tanto di bello da dare a questo mondo, anche se adesso stai soffrendo” Appendere questa ghirlanda fatta insieme è l’inizio. Di che cosa nessuno può saperlo. Delle feste di Natale, di un percorso, di una rinascita. Quello che conta è che qualcosa di nuovo sia nato, che ciascuno si ricominci ogni giorno da dove si è lasciato la sera prima coricandosi. Questa è la cosa più bella che ho con il Natale, perché non è mia ma è nostra 🤲🏻 #storiedieducazione #feliceadesso #comecampanellianatale

I just love being in this kitchen. This space has inspired me so much already and has helped reignite my love of cooking once again. ✨ #kitchenwitch

Dad is my best friend...until I pounce on his face at 730 AM on a Sunday morning 😂 but hey, I just wanted to play, and his beard looked mighty fun to pull on! And he can't stay mad at this face for too long...

Enjoying this cozy season. This weekend brought our first time x-country skiing with all four of us on skis, bringing the beauty and aroma of evergreens inside when everything outside is white, lots of time for rest and play. I hope to keep this coziness with us all through the long winter ahead. And I hope, despite weather predictions, Mrs. Thaw will stay away.
