Sexist Headlines.

As a proud feminist, it’s crazy for me to see anything about Frida Kahlo as a “dabbler” in art. This woman is an artist, a feminist, a person with special needs, so much more than the “wife of a famous artist”. 1933 Article on Frida Kahlo: “Wife of the Master Mural Painter Gleefully Dabbles in … Continue reading Sexist Headlines.

Have cold; will travel.

So I was sick before I left on holiday... then was ok for a couple of days... now I have a cold. Seriously, some days my body is a huge disappointment to me. Not in the way that it looks, but in the way that it has a tendency to malfunction. I wrote about my … Continue reading Have cold; will travel.

Barefoot Mama

Double tap if you love roaming barefooted. My sandals broke. I went barefoot for awhile, which, if you know me, is my preferred state of shod.

Kahlil Gibran – Salt Is Strangely Sacred

I find myself most at peace by the sea. The ocean calms me and speaks to me in a way that no other place can. I love the vibrancy of a city, and beauty of the forest, but I feel most centred at sea. On a beachside, with my toes buried in the sand, the … Continue reading Kahlil Gibran – Salt Is Strangely Sacred

Vacations are about this…

This. This right here makes my heart happy. Our daughter is at an age where holding hands is not really “cool” anymore (what age did that happen for you?? I swear 10 is too young!!), so to see her willingly slip her little hand into her daddy’s is what makes vacation so amazing! It gives … Continue reading Vacations are about this…

I love coffee. Like LOVE, love, LOVE coffee. More than that, I love coffee in big mugs... so when we were at Green World Organic Coffee Farm and my kids found this mug, it was definitely perfect. ... “I love you MORE than coffee, but not always BEFORE coffee”. ... #coffee #butfirstcoffee #mug #coffeemug #snarky … Continue reading I Love You More Than Coffee…
