That time of year when the flowers are infinitely prettier than the posture adopted to scrutinise them...

T H I R T Y // whole months of you today little Fox.
Which also means thirty whole months of this.
When you are awake, tired, asleep, get an ouchie or want a snuggle.
I didn't have a number in mind when I decided to try breastfeed you.
You kinda just took to it straight away and haven't looked back since.
We don't have a schedule and you still feed quite often although mama is trying subtle things to get you to wean.
There have been lots of times when I was SO done and ready to go cold turkey but then you look at me with your big brown eyes and say "Peas mummy?" which is enough to make me cave.
You have fed for longer than your big sister and brother combined which probably makes you my biggest baby ha.
Pretty much everyone thinks it is time for you to stop I think, some subtly and some not so much but you know what?
You will stop when you are good and ready. Just like everything else in life.
Ps. Please just be ready soon because mama would like her body back 😂. #breastfeeding

We should have at least one 2 years old at home every year. It will be really messy and crazy, but so so funny. 😂😉
Still no luggage ready, and a flight in I-don’t-want-to-know-how-many-hours.
Guys, wish us good Luck!
Spain, here we go!
And straight after that, LONDON! 😍🎡Can’t wait.

E se è vero che #civorrebbeunaLiadidueannipersempre, è ciò di cui più di qualsiasi cosa c’è bisogno oggi, incredibile giornata cominciata con:
- solo caffè decaffeinato disponibile 😱
- nessuna valigia ancora preparata con aereo previsto in non-ho-voglia-di-contare quante ore (ok, siamo sinceri, alcuni vestiti sono perfino ancora bagnati 🙈)
- una enciclopedia di cose da fare più o meno equivalenti al numero di abitanti di New Delhi
- due bambini che hanno deciso che arrampicarsi sui vasi sarebbe stato il passatempo della mattina (ok, uno è caduto, ma non si è rotto ✌🏻)
- per pranzo Teo decide di fare lo sciopero della fame. Previsto hamburger con purè (attenzione, lui mangia sempre tutto, ma oggi ha inizialmente optato per una presa di posizione) : “Non lo voglio l’hamburger, perché le mucche sono sacre!” « No Teo, solo in India » 🙄 « E non mi piace il puré » «Puré??? Macchè purè, questo non è puré, questa è crema di formaggio! Non la riconosci? 😏 » [dialogo dell’adulto: @julienmiljian 👊🏻👏🏻]. Io attonita dallo svolgimento della trama del nostro pranzo, lui con la forchetta già in mano. Mangia, e finisce il piatto. « Vero papà, è buonissimo! ». Et voilà. 🙈
Nell’estasi totale, Lia, che nel frattempo ha già la faccia sporca tipica di chi ha apprezzato il pasto, guarda suo fratello con aria altezzosa, come se fosse stata al corrente che quella era evidentemente « crema di formaggio » da sempre, dice, scuotendo la testa : « Oh my God! »
😂 E questa chi gliel’ha insegnata?
Insomma, solo caffè decaffeinato disponibile l’ho già detto?
Bye bye ragazzi, in oramai-sono-costretta-a-contarle ore saliremo su un aereo per Siviglia e, troppo innamorati delle forti emozioni dei momenti che ci riserviamo prima di ogni nostra partenza, abbiamo pure già prenotato il prossimo viaggio: dopo l’Andalusia si va a Londra! 🎡
With a Lot of Love 💛 - #likemiljian

Green walls gone + gray walls up. This was the last room we needed to paint in the house! 💃🏻 Previous owners (and friends/neighbors 🤪) renovated this kitchen and we finally added our family touch to it! SO ready to throw up the blinds, blast some music, and cook dinner in daylight instead of it being pitch black out! But we’ve already made some special memories in this little kitchen and Oliver loves watching me cook! Small kitchen does not mean bad kitchen. Just means there’s no where to hide your cheese itz 💕 #littlepoteethome#kitchen#bethanypoteetpresets
🤱🏻That sweet newborn smell. Finally getting that perfect latch. The sound of them gulping at your breast. Making eye contact when they look up at you.

If you've been watching Tidying Up, you’ve either cleaned every room in your house and thrown away bags and bags of stuff or you're feeling overwhelmed by the idea of starting.
You may be feeling a bit in over your head because you don't have the time to dump all of your clothes on your bed and then follow it up by tidying every other area of your home right now. But you want to. You wish you were someone who was more organized.
If that second one is you, I’ve got good news. I wrote a blog post about how to get started getting organized. We’re simplifying this process as much as possible.
I love everything Marie Kondo - from her book to the Netflix show to listening to her speak in Japanese (she sounds so peaceful) - so I’m allll about it. But if you’re not there yet, I’m here to help you get started. Head to the blog to check it out.

Rise and shine. ☀️ It’s hustle time. 👊🏻 I’m starting my power morning with the Power Breakfast Sandwich from @dunkin. It’s only 370 calories and has 24 grams of protein. 💪🏻 It’s super yummy. 😍 I paired it with their Energy Cold Brew Iced Coffee for an extra kick. 🙌🏻
I’ve got a lot of big plan for this year and I can’t wait to make them happen. One day, one step, one goal at a time. Here’s to making it happen, friends!
Growing up on the East Coast we had Dunkin’s everywhere. When I first moved to Nebraska there wasn’t one. Five years later, Nebraska now has 18. 🎉 Do you have a Dunkin' nearby you? What’s your favorite menu item? #dunkin#ad

I have a big deadline tomorrow and really should be writing, especially after a hospital appointment took up most of this morning. So naturally I’ve decided to rearrange the @stringfurniture shelves above my desk instead.
And on a side note, how nice to see some bright winter sunshine today! I hope it’s as nice where you are...?

Sweet Magnolia! This girl has such a big and joyful personality. The minute I walked in the door for her family's photo session, Magnolia asked me to guess her age, showed me her awesome pink cowgirl boots, told me all of her sibling's names, and made sure I didn't leave until she drew me a picture for my refrigerator. I mean, could there be any better job?! I'm so blessed to get to hang out with people so cool! Isn't it my job to make people smile for their photos?! Maybe I should make Magnolia my new assistant because this sweet girl me smiling the whole time!

"It might not seem like the best place to begin planning a wedding, or even thinking about marriage, but a thorough examination of your motivations and your personal failings will ultimately help you grow toward a more Christian relationship, a more relaxed attitude toward your wedding, and a better and holier life." - Evan Kristiansen ⠀

“Negativity is never the optimum way of dealing with any situation. In fact, in most cases it keeps you stuck in it, blocking real change. Anything that is done with negative energy will be contaminated by it and in time give rise to more pain, more unhappiness. Furthermore, any negative inner state is contagious: unhappiness spreads more easily than a physical disease” - from The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle #thepowerofnow#eckharttolle

Has anyone done a yearly gratitude jar? We’ve got some empty vessels just waiting to be filled with our favorite memories of 2019. So easy. Grab a jar. Fill with memories. And reflect at the end of the year. Memories...🎶...does anyone else hear Barbra Streisand singing right now? 😂

Just gonna leave this one right here. Do the work, you’ll be happy in a year!!!
I’ll admit when thinking about a ski trip with kids I imagined tears and lots of hauling gear and I wasn’t overly excited... However, it ended up being a little of both those things... 😂 AND much more! You should bug me for all the info I’ve gathered this week. I’ll point you towards warm cookies at the bottom of the lift, paleontology presentations, ice skating, and a free nature center with tons of child centered programs🌲
And I haven’t even mentioned all the mountain homes that provided outdoor-living inspiration for days. I saw some serious patio goals from the chair lift 🤩 And I would have taken some pics of said beautiful homes for you... but those chair lifts are terrifying. Am I the only one that sees that it is a bench... hanging from a cord... very high off the ground?!!

Hai gais! Di jaman milenial kali ini, baru ngetrennya kulineran dengan menggunakan aplikasi seperti grab. Hanya dengan kemudahan memainkan jari, makanan yang kita inginkan bisa dinikmati sambil santai di rumah. Wow secanggih itu sekarang! Aku sebagai pecinta kulineran tentunya tak mau ketinggalan dengan update-an menu makanan terbaru dan hits di setiap harinya. Maka dari itu, aku selalu andalkan grab food untuk menemaniku dalam mencari berbagai makanan favorit, terbaru dan kekinian. Ngga cuma diberi kemudahan, dengan grab food, hampir setiap harinya banyak diskonan yang bertabur di smartphone aku gais. Nah, dengan semua kecanggihan dan kemudahannya, aku punya pengalaman seru dan lucu dengan driver grab food gais. Jadi waktu itu, berawal dari pesen roti brownies di salah satu outlet ternama. Driver sudah ditemukan dan kemudian tunggu beberapa menit dulu untuk antri, menunggu pesanan datang dan diantar. Setelah roti brownies sudah jadi dan siap diantar, aku baru memperhatikan dong foto profile si driver. Dan aku berfikir sekejap, tampaknya wajah driver ini seperti tak asing tetapi namanya kok seperti baru pertama kali tau. Setelah itu, driver datang dengan helm masih keadaan tertutup. Kemudian aku bayar roti brownies tersebut sesuai dengan harga di aplikasi. Dann setelah itu si driver buka helm dan ternyata betul si driver adalah tetangga sendiri, aku yang kaget tetapi si driver biasa aja karena sudah paham dari awal melihat alamat rumahku. Hahahaa kemudian aku tertawa sambil mengatakan "ohhh ternyata bapak yaaa" dan si bapak driver pun lanjut dengan penuh tawa sambil mengatakan "loh mbaknya baru ngeh yaa". Tetapi aku masih penasaran dong kok namanya begitu asing dan aku belum pernah tau. Lanjutlah aku masuk rumah dan tanyakan kepada ibu. Ternyata memang yang sering didengar adalah nama sapaannya yang memang jauh dari nama aslinya 😂 Ini pengalaman lucu dan seru aku bersama bapak driver grab food, kalo kalian? Share yukk biar seru-seruan bareng❤️

Tempat makan kekinian sekarang sudah banyak hadir di Yogyakarta. Dengan berbagai macam suguhan tempat dan hidangan yang beraneka macam membuat banyak orang penasaran. Tapi, tempat makan yang unik dan berkesan ada di Taman kenyang Sumringah❤️ Dari namanya yang kenyang memang benar-benar makan di sana kenyange puooll... kenapa? Karena dengan tawaran harga yang pas di kantong, aku tak perlu lagi pikir-pikir untuk mengeluarkan uang gais. Pesan sak puolleeee so pasti bikin kenyang ini perut. Saat memasuki rumah makannya, sudah disuguhkan tempat unik yang nuansanya seperti taman kanak-kanak yang ngebikin suasana hati menjadi tambah bahagia. Di sana ada tempat main golf, ayunan, perosotan, mangkuk putar, lemari buku dengan buku-buku yang beraneka macam. Tak cuma mainannya, dekorasinya juga sangat menarik perhatian, seperti tembok yang dihias dengan gambar balon udara, temboknya penuh dengan cat warna pastel dan lucu tentunya bisa menjadi spot foto ala ala, rumputnya juga dibuat belang-belang dengan warna tua dan muda jadi rasanya ingin aku tiduran di atas rumput tersebut, tempat makannya lucu juga dengan kursi yang biasa anak TK gunakan, ada juga kursi yang dibuat dari ban mobil, ada juga kursi yang didesain dengan bentuk seperti dadu. Selain tempat dan dekorasi, menu makanan dan minumannya juga unik-unik. Variannya beda dengan rumah makan lainnya, seperti songgobuwono yang dikemas menjadi tampak mewah, kue sus yang imut warna-warnanya. Kali ini aku cobain fish and chips, mac and cheese dan creamy pastanya. Ternyata rasanya enak semuaaaa❤️ Ngga cuma plating-nya yang menarik, ternyata rasanya enak bangettt. Pada intinya tempat makan ini pas banget buat yang pengen cari spot foto yang lucu-lucu dan yang jelas instagrammable gais! Rindu ini mulai memuncak, rasanya ingin main-main ke sana lebih lama lagi. InsyaAllah ada kesempatan lain waktu rencana main ajak sekeluarga ke Taman Kenyang Sumringah🎊 Ini ceritaku bersama Sumringah, kalo kamu gais?

Puppies. It wasn’t until a few days ago, while looking at this picture, that I realized my 5 year old had never experienced little puppies before. Our dog is almost 2 years older than her and no one we know has gotten a small puppy. So when we went to visit this little guy, she found puppy love! —
What is it about puppies that brings so much happiness? Those puppy kisses.. so therapeutic. Owning them is a lot of work for sure, but they’re so fun!
We’ve been talking about adding another dog to our family within the next year or two... probably another poodle variety (as we are partial to their breed: smart, easy to train, no shedding). —
Do you have pets? Have you added a puppy after having an older dog? Did they adjust well? Do you consider them part of your family?
