It has been the happiest year! 🎉 Happy FIRST birthday #lincolnchurch it’s been a big year full of all the firsts- first steps, first teeth, first words, first foods, first swims, first trips to Disney, first flights. I’m hyper aware that his firsts could always be my lasts. I hope it’s not but I do cherish the moments with him just a little bit more. #timeforanotherbaby I’ve learned SO 👏🏼 much 👏🏼 this year- about being a Mama to two under two, about being an exceptional wife, about battling anxiety, about being a stay at home mama, about being a work at home mama, about chasing dreams and fighting like hell for what you REALLY desire. Lincoln Church you are everything I hoped for and dreamed of in a son- you are super cuddly and smiley (with the cutest dimples) and full of joy (just like your sister). I am so blessed and eternally grateful to be your Mama. Cheers to year two bubby. I love you SO much! 😍😘😍
FIRST BORN As I typed that, it occurred to me that he's been, and will continue to be, the first for all (most) of the things (his younger sister mastered swinging herself, before he did), from making us parents, to starting nursery school, to riding the bus to Kindergarten, to finishing grade school, to starting high school this fall, and other firsts to come. He was the first to go on an overnight trip, without us, and he's on his first trip out of the United States, as I speak (type). He went to Canada, yesterday. I'm excited he gets to travel with Scouts. I miss him. This is a small taste of him leaving the nest. Life is full of these moments of mixed emotions. I'm grateful for all of it. Still miss him.
Cosy Saturday feels - my @rachelcastleandthings canvas is looking fabulous behind glass - framed by @dromanapictureframing plus that beautiful Butterscotch velvet pouf too🧡 Perfect with my new handmade Denim bean bag !! I was fed up looking around for bean bags - either overpriced/too small or the wrong shape and colour - so here’s my take on the most comfortable oversized beanbag in denim - who doesn’t love denim - it goes with everything its soft and wares really well it will be on my site later 💙 #new#handmade#denim#beanbag#localmade#supportlocal#castleandthings#stairs#nook#saturday##artist#interiorstylist#interiorstyling#melbournestyle#interiorstyle#coastalliving#homedecor#morningtonpeninsula#whiteinteriors#homestyling#picoftheday#newhome#white#homestyle#reallivingmag#apartmenttherapy#happyhome#love
