I turn 42 today 😆 I just snuck downstairs for a cup of tea in peace and to reflect on my year before the day starts.
All in all I’ve had a great year. Watching my boy grow up very quickly and remembering a time I hated birthdays because I couldn’t get pregnant and the birthdays seemed to mark me moving further from motherhood.
I remember my Nan telling me that life goes by faster and faster as you get older and I am finding that to be true. We all know time doesn’t change it’s speed but I think we get faster and busier and that’s why things seem to flow by so quickly.
I will aim to spend by 43rd year slowing down a bit and see if I can make each day feel a bit longer.
I’m feeling grateful for simple things like this ten minutes with a cup of tea in silence !😊 Hoping everyone has a great day xx .
Beauty in. Deep breaths out.
Where is your happy place? That spot that calms you no matter how much weight of the world lies heavy on your spirit. Or that place that lifts you even higher when you thought life couldn’t get any better.
I think you have an idea of my happy place. I could just melt into this sky. And those rolling waves. No matter how stressed, or sad I might be feeling they always soothe my soul.
In one of my most favorite happy places. On the wedding day, during golden light, two cameras on my little body, in go mode sweating like banshee, hanging with my couple (or in this case a photo I took of my couple😆) on one of their most special days! Happy National Photography day! Thankful for the people and the joy photography has brought into my life!⠀
How does art make you feel?
Every time I see this print, it takes me back to a childhood spent at the ocean - the scorching sun on my back, the grind of sand under my feet, laughing in the waves with my brother and surfing with my dad (on a board twice the size of me!).
The amazing thing about art is it can take you to another place, whether you’ve been there or not.
It sets a mood to a room, making you feel relaxed, at peace, even creative.
Surround yourself with the art that does this ✨
