Things I re-learned this week:
1. How to be flexible when things don’t go as planned
2. Traveling alone with a toddler is like drowning..then someone hands you a baby.
3. iPhone photography makes me happy. I think I’ll be sticking to that for a while 📷
4. If you ever want to buy shoes from Urban Outfitters, pick the ones on display for an extra $30 off your purchase 🙌🏽
I forget, I think, how little she still is. She is a hard baby, harder than Teddy in so many ways, yet old posts remind me that at her age, Teddy had super whiney, fussy days, too. Just, with him, he was the only child, so if I had to spend all day dancing or rocking, it was ok. I can't do that with Evie, because I also have a Teddy, and so I think that the challenges she brings feel.... exaggerated. I'm trying really hard today to meet her where she is, and not where I want her to be. Because where she is is a tiny little baby girl who is just trying to figure out how to be, and what a joy it is that I get to hold her hand while she does it.
The best view comes after the hardest climb ✨
Have you ever wondered why the worlds 14 highest mountains are all just below 9km, it’s because the base of the mountain would become liquid because of the enormous pressure. That’s how the maximal hight is obtained.
Dreaming of climbing mountains today and loving a mountain fact 😌
Moving to London and buying a new phone would be a bit of a drastic way to ensure decent pictures of myself, wouldn't it? And to be honest, I'd miss the beach. So I won't move, but I'm really tempted by the phone. This was the @huaweimobileuk #huaweip20 as trialled on the recent photowalk with @ThreeUK.
Heute haben wir den 10. Geburtstag von Holly gefeiert! Es war ein richtig schöner Tag und eben waren wir noch mit meiner Mama essen. Falls ihr euch wundert, was eine Weihnachtstüte auf dem Geburtstagstisch macht - die hat Holly von ihrer Patentante an Weihnachten geschenkt bekommen. Da wir seit meiner Müllfastenaktion kein neues Geschenkpapier mehr gekauft haben, kommen die schönen Tüten eben auch mal am Geburtstag zum Einsatz 😉. Morgen steigt die große Mädelsparty - das wird bestimmt super! Einziges ziemlich großes Problem - ein neuer Wasserrohrbruch in der Wohnung über uns. Das kalte Wasser ist abgestellt und damit funktionieren weder Toilette noch Spülmaschine 😳😳😳. Naja tagsüber sind wir zum Glück außerhalb und abends muss @prof._m sich um die Toilette kümmern (er ist von vielen Festivalbesuchen abgehärtet 😄). Während ich das hier schreibe höre ich übrigens aus dem Bad nur „autsch autsch autsch autsch autsch“ - das ist Prof. M., der nur mit heißem Wasser duschen kann 😉. Also ihr seht - wir haben hier noch einige Herausforderungen zu meistern. Was steht bei euch am Wochenende an?

Me: Omg the light is so beautiful right now. Him: You’re about to pull over at the nearest park for a picture aren’t you? Me: 😈 Quick KB update because many of you have started to ask- I wanted to post a super amazing picture announcing to you guys how excited we are to be moving forward with an adoption plan but I just can’t do that. His goal was changed to adoption, so we celebrate. (SMALL) Because if you remember, our big girls goal was changed to adoption too and a few months later she went home to her mama. There are family members interested. That’s all I can say. We want to scream from the rooftops that we are in the process of making him an Allen, but we just can’t do that. There is legal risk. LOTS of legal risk in this case. We are holding our breath and look forward to the day we can let that breath out. Until then, we are loving him hard. And gosh, he is loving us right back. This kid. This case. I have zero doubts in my mind that he is supposed to be ours. We just don’t know for how long. So we will rest in knowing that we have today. And today is pretty darn special💓
I'm not sure about this photo but with her little toe curl I thought I'd share anyway 🌿I'm forever trying to learn new techniques and generally more about the camera I use, but it can be frustrating when it's self taught and a bit of an experiment every time you take the camera out! 💫I have a vision of what I will one day be able to achieve with my photos so you'll have to bear with me along the way - they aren't always perfect but I hope every one gets me closer to my goal! 💫💫💫#selftaughtphotographer
