The littlest one officially says all of our names at this point. The one he repeats the most throughout the day is definitely “Gray-Gray”. He repeats it when Gray walks in a room, when Gray leaves and when he hears us talking about Gray. The delight he finds in his older brother is palpable and something we pray continues to deepen in both their hearts as they grow older.

Ready for a new week! Aggravations belong to last week. This week, we are stronger. Happy Monday, friends!
Intrigued to try out kamut or khorasan wheat flour that I saw in my nearby shop; so I finally refreshed the starter and baked a loaf of sourdough during weekend. It was nutty and delicious!
The sourdough formula as follows.
50% plain bread flour
50% khorasan / kamut
20% starter ( mix of whole wheat and rye)
I also tried out young levain method, which produces the taste profile that I like, which is not too sour. .
How do u know if the starter is ready to be used ? I’ve shared a little tip in my ig story.

Pianoforti che suonano da soli, ballerine che danzano fra le viuzze del borgo, fogli di giornale che piroettano nell'aria e locomotive impazzite fra i palazzi storici... sembra il Paese delle Meraviglie e invece è Saludecio, in provincia di Rimini.
Borgo medievale del '200 - immortalato da Boccaccio in una delle novelle del Decameron - Saludecio è oggi una cittadina vivace e dinamica che, grazie ai suoi quaranta murales, ha guadagnato l'appellativo di "Città dai muri dipinti".
Come si fa a non innamorarsene?
Mallorca’s colours will stay in my heart, it has been a great holiday also thanks to my sand-free, microfiber soft towel, which @cavanchi_towels Australian brand, recently sent me. This is an incredible piece to add to your luggage when heading to the beach, it’s tiny and compact, much smaller than a usual towel, perfect for those travelling a lot...and so fancy!
I used it as a towel and also as a pareo, because this doesn’t allow sand to stick on even when is wet! Try to believe!
Strongly recommend to visit their IG page and website 💋
I colori di Mallorca mi rimarranno nel cuore, è stata una vacanza ideale, anche grazie al mio asciugamano no-sabbia in morbida micro fibra, che @cavanchi_towels brand australiano, mi ha recentemente inviato. Questo è un pezzo unico da portare sempre in valigia quando vai in spiaggia perché è piccolo e compatto, minuscolo in confronto ad un normale asciugamano, perfetto per chi viaggia spesso...e super ricercato!
Io l’ho usato sia come asciugamano che come pareo, perché la sabbia non si appiccica nemmeno quando è bagnato! Provare per credere!
Consiglio a tutti di dare un’occhiata alla pagina IG e al sito 💋
Travels, simplicity and good vibes✌🏻✨
I take a lot of pictures. I always have. Ever since I was a teenager in the photography club in high school. My uncle gifted me his old photography equipment and I learned how to use the darkroom. I love snapping life’s little moments and- I also coincidentally have a very bad memory. I love flipping through photos, they spark all the memories which in turn spark emotions right?! My boys as babies, birthdays, snowy maple syrup season, giant Christmas trees. This photo makes me think about how it’s important to slow down, take a moment to enjoy things. Ollie and I went to Little Current to the marina to pick up a piece to fix our boat motor and he wanted to walk around and look at the boats. My default answer would normally be ‘no, we’ve got to get going because......’ but this year I’ve been trying really hard to slow down and say yes more. And you know? I look at this and recall how he chatted about this boat all the way back to camp. ❤️ ⠀ #myeverdaymagic ⠀

Sono stata una mezz'ora buona davanti alla finestra, cambiando piatti, posizioni...più luce, meno luce...e poi lo scatto migliore lo faccio in 3 secondi mentre mangio...instagram verità!
Quello che volevo raccontarvi con questa e anche con "quella" immagine era l'atmosfera della mia cucina. Volevo raccontarvi che quando sono a casa da sola posso fare le cose al mio ritmo.
Quando sono a casa da sola posso dedicare del tempo a me e coccolarmi un po'. Oggi, dopo il giardinaggio estremo che vi ho mostrato nelle stories, mi sono preparata una vellutata di topinambur accompagnata da un croccante crostino con dell'autentico brie francese.
Un pranzo veloce, niente di complicato ma si sa che la felicità è nelle piccole cose! #lacucinaincollina#vellutata#topinambur#formaggio#brie

❥ Monday Outfit | Another Favorite Book in the List
Have you heard about the first hour of the day ?
This is the question I ask myself everyday : What can I do today and how can I finish the most important tasks the earliest possible.
I share with you books, because that’s what I love doing most of my time. I value books.
That’s what my Monday looked like today : - Woke up at 6 am - Exercice for 20 minutes full body - Meditation.- Took a very warm shower.
- Styled my outfit. - Reading and writing the post.
Another favorite this week is Get More Done in Less time written by Beau Norton. It is basically all about productivity and motivation.
I loved all the aspects discussed in this book from goals, vision to motivation, time management and productivity.
There are so many takeaways and tools that will help you to keep on the track in this book. I highly recommend it.
I wish you a Happy Monday, enjoy your journey and make everyday count.

‘Life is not what happens to you.
It’s what you do with what happens to you ‘ — via an interview with the Clinton women, Fearn Cottons Happy podcast —
These words really sparked something for me. It’s a very similar sentiment to a conversation I had with my mum only last week, about my illness and what it’s taught me, and why there are still elements of it that I have to deal with even now.... Mainly that they serve as a reminder of the path I should be walking... Is it strange to say that I’m actually grateful to my illness and my body for sending me to rock bottom? Because I am.
It meant that I could find the better, happier, more intuitive version of me that I am now!!💫
I definitely wouldn’t have started learning about herbal medicine otherwise — There’s no motivation to learn like wanting to heal yourself!🌿🍃

This week has been incredibly abundant in time I’ve solely created just to spend with them. And I’ve never felt so much power
I have struggled with my identity after Juno and 100% struggled with it again after Agni. I’m Mama first. I’m Aj too
But right now I am really loving spending time with them and telling them stories about who I was before they came along and their father came along too
Where I was born? Where my first home was? All the countries we moved to as children.What I was into. What I used to love to eat. What my favourite movie was. Who I hung out and what I read. Why I loved to journal my thoughts and make sense of all my goals

Nusa Lembongan. Devil's tears, nearby pools all over the cliff. But what I enjoyed the most? Of course - water. We were snorkelling a lot in the south-east Asia but here was the very first place when my jaw dropped the second I saw the coral reef next to the mangroves area. I've never seen so much and so many fishes in one place! MINDBLOWING. I wish I could have stayed there for hours but the current was too strong. If I was to pick one place to snorkel forever - that would be it!
I am so lucky to have once called this beautiful city home. It feels so strange and sad to walk through my old neighborhood as a visitor now, but what a joy to be here at all. ❤️ #myparis#parisisalwaysagoodidea
Roots for your roots 🌱🥕 Root veggies are my favourite when the weather is starting to get chilly. They help me warm up my body and balance my root chakra and my doshas. They keep me more grounded and help me be more present.
Eating seasonal and local food keeps you in touch with your true self and in tune with Mother Earth. It helps your body work like a clock. My favourite root veggies are... well, all of them. But beetroots, carrots and potatoes have a special place in my heart and my belly. I even went full length and tattooed a beetroot on my arm 😅
And now I wonder: what are your favorite ways of keeping yourself grounded and in balance? Let's share and help inspire one another

During the colder months of the year, we love to put our Kettle to use preparing simple health-boosting hot beverages - like lemon 🍋, ginger and orange 🍊 slices, topped with some honey 🍯. It’s a great immunity and energy boost. What healthy, warm drinks do you love to indulge in during Autumn/Wintertime? Have a great new week.

♡ Sunday moments like this ♡
Breathing in the crisp air after waking up,
enjoying all the frost sparkling on the flowers with the rising sun, walking through a path of colorful leaves in the woods, having a warm bowl of soup,
visiting an art exhibition and then..
cosy time with a cup of autumnal tea and delicious cinnamon rolls.
Oh what not to love about Sunday ♡

My lovely home 🏠 ✨
Одна із фішок затишного та комфортного будинку, підтримання чистоти та порядку в ньому. Як говорять «чистий дім - чиста голова». Й на мені це круто працює. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Якось давно я проходила марафон, на якому було завдання викинути по 30 речей з кожної кімнати. Першою моєю реакцією було: «це нереально!». Та ми викинули більше, бо виявилось, що дуже багато непотрібного мотлоху ховалось на полицях. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️Тепер у нас є правило «розхламлятись» хоч раз в сезон. Скоро Новий Рік й на нас чекає, капітальне розвантаження нашого будинку. Переберемо кожну кімнату й всі непотрібні речі віддамо або ж просто викинемо. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Цікаво, а як ви ставитесь до подібного?
Tea and twigs. Bookmarking this calming scene here as I’ll be moving everything again soon to make way for some late autumnal slightly warmer colour - if it EVER stops raining and I can commence foraging again?! Wishing you a slow and restorative Sunday 💫
