Being pregnant for a third time a whole 4 years after my last pregnancy is so very different in so many ways.⠀
The way I look at my body (promise this leads to bruschetta) is more of awe and amazement than I’ll be honest a bit of disgust that I had the first two times around as I experienced growing ‘big’ for the first time (totally not counting half a person I put on in 3 months in Canada as a 19yo).⠀
I put on a lot of weight in pregnancy. A lot! But this time I see it as having a purpose. That extra fat, it’s to help nourish my baby (if feeding works out for me this time). ⠀
The giant tummy, there’s an actual, real-life human growing in there. In my body. How amazing are our bodies? ⠀
Instead of using pregnancy as an excuse to eat whatever I want, I’m much more mindful that what I eat is nourishing a growing human.⠀
Really, it’s how I should eat all the time cause I feel so much better when I eat well and give my body all the goodness it needs. Why do we not look after ourselves the way we do our kids??⠀
Even if it’s just adding a handful of spinach to a meal, I’m always thinking about adding some goodness for 🤰🏼. ⠀
On Saturday I made my best ever bruschetta for lunch (recipe on the blog - seriously it’s soooo good and takes about 3 minutes to make!). Not pregnant, I’d just have that, pregnant a voice in my head says ‘hmm you can do better’ so I added a fried egg for protein and good fats and a handful of spinach. ⠀
It doesn’t have to be complicated, just a little upgrade - they all add up! ⠀

If a beautiful woman is a jewel 💎 then a good woman is a treasure.✨
Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. 🙌🏼
First bone broth of the season to finalize our transition from gypsies to homebodies. I got adventurous + threw in some chicken feet this time + I’m hoping all the creepy crawliness is worth it + my stock is better than it’s ever been. Blake’s opinion: “Ew! That’s yucky!” Maybe I should have crossed the little chicken toes?! 🥴
TRAVEL UPDATE: After a week in Belgium, I am glad to be back home. And our life is slowly getting back to normal. Yet, going back to Europe has been amazing and I had a few realizations while there... 1. I still love traveling (even though I haven’t been outside SA for about 13 years). There is a sense of adventure, discovering new things and different ways of doing things, that really thrills me!
2. Experiences will always trump stuff in my book!
3. With a well curated travel wardrobe, you can look great everyday without packing tons of clothing.
4. It is TOTALLY ok to borrow stuff if you don’t have what you need. In this case, I didn’t have a proper winter coat to withstand the European winters, so I borrowed one.
5. I missed my girls and fiancé terribly... and so much more than I anticipated! Since we are never really apart for very long and never big distances apart, I knew I would miss them... but it was sooo much more than I expected!
6. I love bringing back some local snacks and treats (that we don’t get in SA) instead of physical gifts...
7. Layering works reaaaaally well in cold weather - eapecially if you don’t own a lot of thick winter jerseys, etc.
All in all, it was a great trip, even although it was exhausting. And it was amazing to go there with my Dad, especially because when I lived in France it was also just the two of us.

A LOT OF US ARE SLEEPWALKING OUR WAY THROUGH LIFE.
Going through the motions, pandering to other peoples expectations, feeling disconnected from ourselves & our true desires.
Doing shit we don’t want to just to pay the bills. Feeling trapped on the hamster wheel of life. I get it, I did it for years & it leaves you feeling empty & resentful.
Doing the things society shapes us to do without ever questioning it. Life becomes predictable, boring and burdensome until you start to question everything.
The only way to start creating joy, excitement and purpose is to tap into your inner knowing.
Question why you’re doing things and if the outcome is worth the sacrifice.
Is it the outcome you want or others expect of you?
Just asking yourself that one question can wake you up to change.
You have the power to create a life you deserve and desire.
You just have to wake up, pivot and start making changes to create it for yourself 💛
Happy weekend, friends 🤗 This AM I whipped up some quick and easy open faced breakfast tacos 😋💕 super yummy & you can customize them with anything that you like 👏🏼👏🏼
I used @missionfoodsus street taco shells, slathered with @baseculture nuttiest cinnamon almond butter, and topped with frozen raspberries, pumpkin seeds and coconut shreds! Warmed them up a lil so everything was melty & soft, wrapped them up & devoured 😍
