How can we raise moral, caring children? That’s the question at hand for Dr. Rick Weissbourd and @mccharvarded. Dr. Weissbourd is on today’s new podcast episode to talk about his research on the subject and the strategies we can use to raise kind kids. As he says, our primary role as parents should be growing good citizens who care. #dogooderspodcast
It’s a quick dinner of chicken and pasta as we head downtown for a @greenvilledrive game tonight. Lately, though this has become our go-to meal if we're busy or just too lazy to actually cook. It's pretty tasty and it gets us both in the kitchen cooking! . What are some of your favorite go-to meals? 👩🏼🍳
The simple joys of being back home: 1) diffusing my oils again! I used my oils non stop during our trip, but man oh man do I love diffusing all day long. We now have diffusers in three rooms-our bedroom, the kitchen, and living room. I select oils to diffuse based on my mood, how I’m feeling, or what I’m needing. Aromatherapy is so good for the soul. ✨ 2) listening to our records again. As you probably know, we’ve only been listening to @mountaingoatsmusic lately, but we’re seeing @boniver this weekend so I’ve switched back into only listening to our Bon Iver records. 3) cooking! Edgar and I loooove spending time cooking together. Making delicious, nourishing food with the one you love most? Yes please. 4) taking care of our plants, sourdough starter, kombucha SCOBYs, and worms (vermicompost) booch won’t be ready until after our next trip, but having fresh sourdough again has been splendid! 5) slow mornings with yummy, French press coffee (no cream, no sugar, just black goodness) 6) sleeping in our own bed again! What’s your favorite thing about returning from a trip? ☀️

This is where this little man has wanted to be for the past couple of days.. teething is back and my poor little guy is not his usual happy, cheerful self. Lots of mama cuddles (actually not complaining at all about this one), lavender foot rubs and copaiba on his gums to help make everything better. Hope those teeth pop through soon my sweet little muffin.
It's school holidays for us now... three whole weeks! This time last year we were in Rutherglen, celebrating a dear friends birthday, and this image taken at @allsaintsestate is still one of my faves 🖤 We are definitely in the thick of winter in Melbourne this week 🥶
Designing, creating, building... that’s my jam. Posing for pictures by myself... not so much. 😬 Loved spending a little time today delivering these new shelves to @wyckwoodhouse . Stop by tomorrow when the shop is open to see them all styled up and full of goodies!
What inspires you? Lately I’ve been completely inspired by @aclotheshorse and her hashtag #quietinthewild These little moments of truly appreciating and relishing in beauty has been an amazing self care booster. Lately I’ve been living for quiet moments filled with exploration, appreciate and reflection.
I shot this picture in March and despite loving it, it remained unpublished until now. The reason? The color green: that green is so hard to edit and I thought that it would ruin the harmony of my gallery. Then Instagram reduced the organic reach further and even though I was quite mad about it at first, slowly it became a liberation. Those low numbers pushed me to make the changes I wanted to do for a while and made me go back to my “origin” where I was posting these details that I still love so much. For those that work with social media, numbers are still important but they are out of my control so I want to enjoy photography with no pressure. So here it is, a picture full of greens and very lightly edited! : : Ho scattato questa foto a marzo e, nonostante mi piacesse tantissimo non l’ho pubblicata fino ad ora. Il motivo è banalissimo: il colore verde. Quel verde che mi riusciva difficile da editare e “rovinava la gallery”. Quindi è rimasta abbandonata per mesi, poi Instagram è cambiato riducendo drasticamente la reach organica e, se all’inizio questa cosa l’ho trovata difficile da digerire, ora l’ho presa un po’ come una liberazione. Perché quei numeri bassi mi hanno spinta a fare il cambiamento che da mesi volevo fare e tornare un po’ alle origini con foto di dettagli che tanto amavo. In tutta onestà i numeri per chi, come me, con instagram ci lavora, sono importantissimi ed è inutile negarlo ma sono fuori dal mio controllo quindi voglio vivermi questa passione con più serenità. Per cui eccovi la foto con tanto verde che tanto mi piaceva e con un edit leggerissimo! : : : : : : : : : #rzepak#aquietplace#aquietmoment#quietchaotics#poetryofsimplethings#rsa_portrait #nestandflourish#embracingslowerlife#embracingtheseasons#softdreamyphotography#flowers_andlife #flowersfield#thesincereststoryteller#capturequiet#polskajestpiekna#thebotanicalseries#exceptionalstilllife#loveliest4#summervibes🌞 #seasonspoetry
Happy Monday 🤗 today has consisted of shooting client photos in this humid weather 😅 I also took this flatlay on my phone the other day something I haven’t done in sooo long but the photo just wouldn’t come out right on my camera for some reason!

@pampersus has completely changed the game with the new Pampers Cruisers 360 Fit. #pamperspartner With an innovative stretchy waistband that moves as baby moves, this wild child of mine can freely run, jump, climb and explore without having to worry about a sagging or leaking diaper! Diaper changes and disposal are a breeze. Just tear the sides, roll, secure with the built-in disposal tape, and toss. #cruisers360#wildchild#pampers#pampersbaby
Do you love a beautiful cafe as much as I do? Especially when you stumble upon it after hours of wandering a foreign city or exploring a new museum. . The Chun Shui Tang teahouse in Taichung, where bubble tea was invented, is filled with quiet corners, beautiful ceramics and the flowing script of Mandarin Chinese. It's one of my favorite moments from my trip to Taiwan, but there are so many others - the delectable Hakka cuisine, teahouses in the mountains, and lively night markets that make Taiwan a perfect (and very underrated) destination for slow travel. Read my full story on Taiwanese cuisine up now on my blog (link in bio).

The universe is always listening. I’ve been wanting to make some irises and violets for a while now but because my list of new products to make is basically a mile long and I need to make all the things as quickly as possible but I’m running a business so have to prioritise trending stuff like wedding flowers and wreaths etc individual stems tend to get left to the bottom of the list. Unless that is a fabulous customer contacts me and says “can you make...” to which I always say yes and this week I had two separate requests! One for irises with some willow (pictured) and the other for a bunch that includes some violets (I’ll post those later this week). So yay! Irises will shortly be added to the shop and hopefully you all love them as much as I do!
If life imitates clothes (as it probably should), does this dog walking print dress mean I’ll get a puppy soon? 🐶 I’m always a sucker for @princesshighwayclothing’s classic clothes & sweet prints & this one is no exception! Worn on a walk through the gardens at Rowallane that could only have been improved by a canine companion. I still feel too rootless for a pet but I can’t help dreaming of a scruffy puppy. My absolute dream dog is an Irish wolfhound which would be totally unsuitable for my current tiny home, but a girl has to have a dream, no? What’s your dream pet? gifted dress 🌿🐶🌿🐶🌿#princesshighway #princesshighwayclothing #calmversation#capturequiet#nestandflourish#blossomhunter#underthefloralspell#inspiredbypetals#myseasonalstory#verilymoment#capturingseasons#sheisnotlost#thisjaneaustenlife#vintageinspired#aseasonalstory#womencreate
In between working, I’ve been adjusting to this uncomfortable space of being consistent and productive at the same time. • Its been overwhelming & unfortunately my fallback is the complete opposite of what I’m trying to accomplish. So instead of pushing out posts, doing videos and creating content after work, I’ve been laughing it off, chillin’ and nappin’. Yikes. I reevaluated some of my goals over the weekend though and I’m ready to hit em all pretty hard. Let’s do this thang! 💪 • 📸: @pictureapril • Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow to my insta stories! I’m not doing the Tuesday Talk but I’ve got something else up my sleeve. 😏 🗣 #staytunedformore#tunein

“Eventually you’ll end up where you need to be, with who you’re meant to be with, and doing what you should be doing.” 499 days of marriage (and 500 days in New Zealand, where we got married) ✨ It’s still so crazy to think about all the big and little decisions that had to happen, many of them out of our control, to bring us together, and yet it still happened. More and more I’m embracing the flow of life and letting it take me where I’m meant to be 🌿
If I could- I’d send you all a bouquet of flowers right this instant. Happy Monday gang! You can do this. P.S. there’s a link to these little labeled spring flowers in bio. In case minimalist florals are your thing 😎
