Thankful I get to spend my days loving these three. ❤️ (also thankful for: dry shampoo, friends who are family, whispering in bed before falling asleep & extra hot chai lattes). Hope my Canadian friends had a delicious Thanksgiving weekend with lots of pumpkin pie and loose pants!

Not too long ago a friend had posted a photo of herself & her 7 month old baby. It was a lovely photo, they looked so happy, but then I read what she had written and my heart just fell. She preempted her caption by apologizing for her postpartum size. I was crestfallen. Sad for her because she couldn't see her true beauty as a new mother. As a woman. Angry at (social) media for perpetuating negative & harmful ideals that are unattainable for the majority of us. .
.
It's taken me 19 months to get to a place where I can post such a vulnerable photo. I have embraced my postpartum body. Truthfully it hasn't always been easy. This is my attempt to normalize the normal. I am beautiful. I am enough .
.
And guess what? If you're reading this you too are normal. You are beautiful. You are enough .

Much love & thanks to Aimee & Jenna of @hobbs_photoandfilm for choosing me to participate in this year's A Mother's Beauty. Earlier this summer I and 18 other brave women gathered at their farm for a photo session to celebrate our postpartum bodies. It was a soul lifting and liberating experience. Something in me changed as soon as I took off my dress and stood there proudly in my new underwear holding my beautiful babies. I think we all felt the energy shift. It was that powerful of a moment. Please visit their blog to see the full session.

Countless smart, confident, successful women, mothers, grandmothers, daughters & sisters are occupying their thoughts with negative self talk about their bodies. .

How do we change this? Small steps. Throw out your scale. Look at your naked body in the mirror and say out loud (even if it feels weird): I am beautiful. I am strong. Surround yourself with body positive lady friends. Think of your body as an instrument that moves you through life, not as an ornament. Wear that bodycon dress or bikini you don't think is meant for you. It is for you. This is your only life. Embrace it. Make it count.

Scotty and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary today. It hasn't always been easy--having kids has changed the dynamics of our relationship & we work hard at staying connected while constantly being pulled in different directions--but it's always been worth it. He's my best friend and I'm his best pal. I know 'cause I just asked him to confirm while I wrote out this caption.

Scotty got a bit emotional when he saw his beautiful Father's Day cake. (I asked him if I could share that with you.) It may have been utter exhaustion--the boys are teething and their molar eruption parties seem to regularly take place in the wee hours of the night--coupled with the sheer joy of getting to be a dad, a kick ass one I might add, after so many years of not knowing if that would even be a part of his reality. I'm proud of who he is and who he's becoming and grateful that I get to parent alongside this strong yet sensitive man every day. Happy Father's Day, Scotty! You're our favourite. Gorgeous cake by @sugaredandspiced.

Every night for the past week, once its cooled off, I open our bedroom window to let the sweet scent of the lilacs float in. It's one of my favourite summer rituals and also one of my favourite things about living in an older neighbourhood. Our entire community smells heavenly! Just wish these blooms would stick around a while longer. (a lovely reminder to enjoy life's most fleeting moments.)

I made fast friends with the coconut margarita @elcortezyeg. For the record: it goes down much too easily & took me back to when I was 18 & in Cancun with my best friend for our high school graduation. That, and the fact I'll be up at 6 a.m. with our dudes, was reason enough to stick to a two drink limit. #twinmamasnightout #isthereanelegantwaytosaycheapdrunk

First ride of the season! Sixty minutes of pure bliss pedaling through some of yeg's oldest neighborhoods while breathing in the sweet scent of spring blossoms at every turn. It felt refreshing to do something that reminded me of who I am underneath it all. #notjustamom #honestmotherhood

This long weekend was one of the best we've ever had. We visited three different playgrounds (we've realized that's what parents of early rising toddlers do in the wee hours of the morning), the zoo, Whyte Ave, Beaumaris lake & Kinsmen spray park. The boys are down to one nap a day so when they had their afternoon snooze, so did Scotty & I (yay for family naps!). We ended our three days of fun with a BBQ with Nono & Nona. Hope your long weekend was just as great! #exploreEdmonton

When you get excited after spotting a unfamiliar dress in your closet, quickly realize it's a never worn maternity dress and you wear it anyway. Because: 1) pretty dress, 2) you feel good in it & 3) wearing it makes you feel a bit like your old self. A show of 🙋🏼: who else has worn maternity clothes well after pregnancy? It can't be just me. Can it? 📷: my IG wife @theayesh.

"I'm happy with a little house,
a low white fence before it;
Thankful for the little feet
That toddle to explore it;
Contented with a fireplace
Someone I love for kissing.
You can have your palaces,
I'll have what you are missing."
-Helen Virden

Hope your Mother's Day was exactly what you needed it to be! We started off the day with a long walk with our dudes and then made brunch for our mamas. We ate a lot. Laughed a lot. And kissed these two (teething!) bubbas a lot. It was simple and low key and perfect. I'm pretty certain this day will never lose its wonder. ❤️
