Painted crafts 🎨

When I’m feeling up to it, I enjoy painting as part of my #Selfcare routine. I just did these yesterday.

Loved the solitude of sitting at the kitchen table, listening to podcasts as I worked on these.

💅 Pretty Little Things 💅

I have always loved having pretty looking nails, it always makes me feel better. I used to bite my nails as a kid and my mum tried everything to get me to stop but nothing worked. Then she decided to paint my nails one day and they looked so pretty that it didn’t want to mess them up so I didn’t bite at my nails. Such a simple solution to what is a tricky habit to break. Since then I have always liked getting my nails done, but 4 years ago FND robbed my of the ability to go to a nail salon and have my nails painted and designed. So, since I don’t use nail extensions, I decided to take things into my own hands… literally, and started trying out different designs on my nails. It worked rather well because I had pretty nails again and it also gave me a way to still be creative and artistic too. It might take me a while to do my nails because of my health but I still get there in the end and that gives me a sense of accomplishment. These are some of my favourite creations that I’ve done and I’m sure I will have more along the way. It might seem like a small thing but it’s the little things that make the biggest difference. 💅😍🥳

#ItsTheLittleThings ?

Watching my son enjoy an ice cream he got off the ice cream truck...watching him become a sticky ice creamy mess even though i just gave him a bath...seeing him laugh because the ice cream is so cold...these are the moments i live for...these are the moments that keep me fighting through another day💖

Taking in a moment #ItsTheLittleThings

I was walking today
It was beautiful outside
Sunny with a light breeze
I came to a street and stopped
A car approached apprehensively
It was a little to far to the center of the street
It’s driver a young male clearly nervous
His mom in the passenger seat beside him
Fully focused on her son
The young man came to a stop
And cautiously made his turn onto the next street
I stood back and watched
My heart went out to the woman in that moment
My twins are approaching 16
They are also learning to drive
I know how simultaneously proud and petrified this woman feels in that moment
So I smiled at the woman
Even though I knew she wouldn’t see it

It’s the Little Things in Life #grateful

‪Is it odd to enjoy a home that is completely quiet? No music, no TV, and neighbors asleep. Total, blissful silence. One reason I love being up in the middle of the night.

I really love flowers. They make me smile. I don’t wait for anyone to buy them for me so I go out and get them myself. #ItsTheLittleThings #Selflove
