One year since this crew could all be together! Heartwarming to see these guys waiting in our house when Kyle walked in! Wait how’d they get in? LOL😂

Here's to the cozy nights of old.
It is finally the end of my fall term, and the days could not feel more winter. The past ten weeks have been filled with light, lessons, and love. Not all of these things have the same positive quality. The lens through which I choose to perceive them will hopefully change the darker memories for the better.
Regardless of any trials or difficulties, I am grateful for those lessons alongside all the others. The lessons delivered with kindness, consideration, and love absolutely tried me less, though maybe did not teach me less, despite the more favorable mode in which they were given. Most lessons in life should be recieved with a growth mindset, at least, for me. I wouldn't be so resilient were I not to. But I digress. Perhaps it does not suit everybody, but it certainly works for me.
Here is my written public acknowledgement of the harder days that we face. Here also is my assertion that they can be managed. Somewhat elegantly, but at least with some level of politeness or poise. Frustration and anger have no permanent place in our hearts. We must instead offer acceptance and empathy, even if it is not what is offered to ourselves.
Travel safely, friends. <3 And be impeccable to yourselves.
Funny how we call this astonishingly beautiful kind of thing ‘other-worldly’, as if it’s just too incredible to belong here.
This was an aurora light show shot a few weeks ago in Tromsø, northern Norway, with the most amazing angel of the north #glow going on. Along with all of our other land-sea-sky world wonders, it’s almost unbelievably lovely.
If you're a lover of arts, then a visit to the Obu Ofo-Nri Museum in Anambra is a must this holiday season. It was built in the town of Enugwu-Ukwu by the King Eze Nri, to serve as a platform to display outstanding artworks of people in his community. The museum is also a stone throw away from the King's palace. #NoPlaceLikeHome#FaceOfOkija
My ma used to tell me
"Learn to build a home
Inside yourself so
No matter where go
You always feel at home"
Ma, I love you beyond words can express
The love and guidance you planted as seeds in my chest
Grow now like a tree
As I travel your words guide me
In my inner compass
Each day on the road
Often feels like two weeks
With the amount that I learn
Makes me wonder how time is so relative...
But no matter where I go
That I can always find a home
There's no place like ohmm.
I have brought my husband and the girls away for the weekend for his 50th birthday.
We are staying in a fabulous treehouse @thefishhotel near Broadway.
The girls are super excited, it seems that at 16 and 13, they are not too old for bunk beds 🤣. We are now out for dinner @dormyhouse where they seem to have slipped into a food coma 🤣 And yet, they are excited at the thought of breakfast and want to know if they can just keep on eating.
After dinner we will head back to @thefishhotel and the games room to play pool.
Tomorrow we are off to play ten pin bowling, some Christmas shopping, and a lovely dinner in Broadway to look forward to 😁
Ankara paradise 😬😬😬.
My love for Ankara & african prints knows no bounds.
I love the convience of e-shopping. But nothing beats trekking about the market, feeling the fabric in your hands and the banter haggling for "best price'.
With every piece you ask - is it original ? And the answer is always "haba madam, na only original we dey sell 🤣"
And then you start to haggle back and forth until you arrive at an amount both parties are happy with.
Tomorrow , ive got to shop for items and ask for "Jara" .
I couldnt do that with fabric, 😕😕😕.

Dicembre mi confonde. Mi spinge avanti, verso quel mondo di luci, cose buone e felici che mi ruotano tutt’attorno. E poi mi spinge indietro, verso ciò che mi manca, perché dicembre amplifica le mancanze.
E’ un mese inquieto quello in cui sono nata.
Mi fa sentire appartenente a qualcosa. Ma anche la nostalgia verso chissà cosa.
Un mese bello e turbolento, carico di contraddizioni.
Siamo stati in tanti posti quest anno: Germania, Paesi Bassi, Indonesia, Danimarca, Sardegna.
Abbiamo programmato la nostra prossima avventura in Thailandia, il mio paese. La mia lista poi comprende la Norvegia, le Filippine, le Hawaii e il mio sogno americano fatto a road trip.
Questo Dicembre in particolare sarà turbolento perché cambiamo casa, entreremo nella NOSTRA casa, quella che pagheremo da qui a quando
avremo già qualche capello bianco.
Quindi direi che per avere 24 anni siamo anche bravi.
E io so che possiamo viaggiare all’infinito, ma poi alla fine, lo sai anche tu che nessun posto è come casa ❤🏡 #noplacelikehome#newhome#decembervibes .
About 29 hours and exactly three layovers later, I'm back home! Since I have trouble sleeping on moving vehicles, I also went that whole time without sleep. It didn't help that I was starting to get sick and arrived a snotty mess.
Oh, did I mention one of those flights got delayed enough that I was going to miss my connection? I had to book a last-minute replacement. But... I'm home! As fun as all that travel was, it's also really nice to be back home.
Conservatory of Flowers Winter Night Bloom 🌚🌺 My aunt Jean took me here as a child because she was a Master Gardener and she helped with the plants. I would wander around and never knew how special a place it would become to me. Seeing it grow and embracing our tech era with these light and sound shows is really special. ✨ @conservatoryofflowers I hope you keep it up, it’s beautiful.
This is literally my Feel Good Friday board today... getting home safe and sound, being met by my Lovely Dad in the airport at 4:30am, father-daughter quality time on the drive home and getting to spend the next few days with awesome friends and family!
Feel Good Friday, is right!
What's making your own Feel Good Friday list today?
Soo excited to show you the new addition to our living room! 😬 In love with our new fireplace and the cosiness it has added, just in time to be given the Christmas touch too! Can you believe this took under 20 minutes to fit! 🤯 This is the BeModern Hansford from @ao and I can’t believe how it’s completely transformed the space in such a short time - our quickest makeover ever I think! I’ll be adding a video in the next couple of days to show how we did this so quickly but in the meantime, if you’d like to see just a few outtakes of the upcoming video (yep, there were lots more than this!) 🤦🏽♀️🙈🙄😂😂😂 then head over to my stories and I’ll add a swipe up to this fireplace too. Have a fab Saturday night all, I’m going to warm up a mulled wine and sit happy as a pig in my cosiness heaven 😂 xx

It’s been good to be home! So much love and support has been so honourjng, healing and hopeful! I was joking while performing to a beautiful crowd at @clubregentcasino that half the audience might be a #Kreviazuk lol but truly... I am so touched by the support of family and friends and the warm community in this cold place they call #Winnipeg When I am home, not sure if it is my #Métisspirit perhaps but I even DREAM at night about people and places and experiences from my past here. Some painful, some not resolved. But that’s the thing about life right? It’s this beautiful mess we’re all in. The thing to know is that these imperfections and flaws... they may never fix. They may never become perfect. That’s okay. I love being the age I am and knowing that we’re all learning and growing each day... that every new day is another chance at life, another opportunity to try. Ultimately I am so lucky because I get to come home as a version of myself I always dreamed I could be. I would never have that experience without the love, support, forgiveness and faith of so many amazing friends and people. I love you all and I wish you a wonderful holiday! Go @nhljets go!!!! #gratitudenotattitude#warmwelcomehome#noplacelikehome#feelslikehome#xmasisawayoflifemydear#lifteachother#weallgetlighter@rainemaida
