Rise Robin May Fleming
robinmay Our much-anticipated camping trip was rained out this morning by a vicious migraine. [Insert adult-sized baby tears here.] If there's a light at the end of this tunnel, I'll be honest--my eyes are too sensitive at the moment to appreciate it. But I thank God for @matthewjay for holding my hand through the darkness and for saying the words I never thought I deserved to hear from a partner: "Don't worry. I'll take care of you." (Bonus points to Gracie for tolerating a few extra snuggles on these very bad days.) 17h

robinmay Bang trim selfies, before + after! Verdict: the world is extra pretty when you can actually see past your own hair. Perfect timing, too, because we leave tomorrow for a few days of camping at one of my favourite places on earth. xx. 2d

robinmay A love letter. Fourteen months ago, I married this tiny speck of perfection. And what a funny creature he is: kind and creative, frugal and hilarious, focused and faithful, and brave brave brave. He's occasionally the C-3PO to my R2-D2; he's ALWAYS the calm to my storm. For fourteen months and for forever, I love this speck of perfection, intentionally and enthusiastically, with my mind and actions and all my heart. 4d

robinmay Thank you, @matthewjay, for capturing this moment of pure light. Some days the headaches and the fatigue and the all-round-I-feel-crappy-ness are just too much. Chronic pain is like that. Sometimes it lurks behind the scenes and sometimes it pushes you right off stage. My greatest challenge at the moment is not having a place to which I can retreat. Between homes, we are dependent on the beds of others and the kindness of others. At my best I require a fair bit of solitude, and in this state I am the world's worst houseguest. Exhaustion looks anti-social, efforts to relieve discomfort appear persnickety, and my fist-clenching, hair-tugging, OVERWHELMING need for silence comes across as downright rude. They are none of those things, though; I am none of those things. Pain is running the show and I am in the wings. Waiting. 5d
  •   emilymoesewco I know exactly how you feel. Chronic pain is horrifying and incomprehensible to those that don't have it. Strength to you. And may you find a perfectly silent cocoon to rest in. 4d

robinmay This passing dog saw Matt skipping rocks and decided to camp out patiently, directly in front of us, until he tossed one for her. I admire her gumption. 6d

robinmay I don't know weeds from the good guys, and for as long as I don't have a garden I'll consider this a blessing. 7d
  •   robinmay @jessemixer Thank you for the weed wisdom! I suppose there's a time and a place for all of us. xx. 6d
  •   jessemixer Yes! I guess when we put down roots, choose the locale wisely! Good thing i transplant well! Ha! 6d
  •   suzredwine "A weed is a plant out of place." So only the plants you don't want there are weeds. :-) 6d

  •   janinemarie Well no disrespect. Your page is lovely as are your photos. I'll be sure not to comment "promo" type comments 6d
  •   robinmay @janinemarie I appreciate your generous words. Thank you :) And I'm glad you followed up. I meant no disrespect either. We've all lived through spam epidemics on IG, and at times it's really threatened our ability to see through to the sincere interactions and enjoy our time here. So I'm a bit sensitive, perhaps overly so. All the best with your business! 6d
  •   janinemarie Thank you @robinmay 5d

robinmay At the edge of big water--any big water--is the most magnificent re-set button. It strips away ego, steals tightly-held breath, and just like that: perspective. I follow quite a few Instagram accounts that lovingly capture the pull of the sea, and the one belonging to @michellenicoloff has been a favourite of mine for years now. I love how she documents the mermaid life of her beautiful family, PLUS she's super, super, super nice. (Whether or not that adds to a photo, I don't know. But it certainly makes me a loyal follower!) If your skin is craving salty air and your toes are craving sand, I enthusiastically recommend doggy-paddling over to say hello to Michelle. And if you've got another soggy account that you love, let me know! I'm always looking to add a little more depth to my days. Happy Monday, friends. xx. 1w

robinmay This sky so far is all growl and no rain. Does your head get fuzzy before a storm? Mine sure does. Much as I love a little weather, the moderate climate on California's central coast was bliss for my brain. Sigh. I wish I could be everywhere at once. xx. 1w

  •   butterflies191 Wow! Robinmay it must be something to live in California's coast after having lived in Canada! I often think it would help my brain to move somewhere like California. Right now I'm enjoying the Pennsylvania weather except the humid days. But the big thing is I strongly dislike Winter. You were often my encouragement to get out there bundled up but this past Winter was so icy and cold often with stuck cars and hurt backs. Well I'm glad you are getting to visit and experience your homeland but great to know your head is somewhat better on California's West Coast! All the very best to you and Matthew and of course Gracie. She's a sweetheart. 1w

robinmay Sure, magic can be stumbled upon. But it can also be conjured, tight-fisted and scrunchy-eyed, when you desperately need it the most. (The trick, I think, is to practice.) 1w

robinmay Our real estate agent snapped this photo of us in North Carolina, as we happily hung out on our soon-to-be front lawn. It's been a while since we've received an updated estimate of the move-in date from our builder, but it's so far been moved from June to July and then from July to August. I'm thinkin' mid-September is more realistic, if maybe still a little overly optimistic. Anyone else wanna guess? 1w
  •   hannahshappiro That's a lovely photo so natural and you both seem so happy 1w
  •   lindalaughs Oh my, our house was ready in september instead of january, a week before the twins were born. So with a bit of experience i would guess between Christmas and new year, the period You definitly don't want it to happen! Thats life. Expect the unexpected. Or don't expect anything at all. Be prepared or not at all. But then again, i have never won a price, or a guessing game hahaha, so You Two might be just fine! 1w

robinmay My husband and I argue occasionally, but only once in a great while will we have what I’d describe as a “fight.” What’s the difference? Well, I think that during a fight you step into the ring. You put your whole body and heart into it—hearts thud, eyes flash, tempers flare into raised fists. Our beings assume a defensive posture and we strike at each other’s weak spots. Sometimes the metaphorical gloves come off. That to me is a fight... (I ramble longer at the link in my bio, if you're in need of some weekend reading. xx.) 1w
