a video from london.

this week as i finished putting together this little video from our time in england, my heart just felt so heavy and i wasn’t sure if i should even go through with sharing the video on here at all. it’s footage of our favorite and happiest moments as a family experiencing and enjoying a city that is going through a lot of hurt and heartbreak right now....

i live for those days where it’s not too hot, not too cold, and we can pack up the stroller with some swimsuits, snacks, sunscreen and toys for the day and just head out! who knows where we’ll go exactly, how many playgrounds or splash pads or parks we’ll come across. the city feels like our backyard on these days and the boys are always so incredibly happy and content to just keep going, which i swear helps me feel unstoppable as a mother sometimes (even when i’m down to my last wipe, which always feels a little bit risky and dangerous, if you know what i mean!)

i don’t know how i got so lucky in the girlfriend department, but i’m surrounded by some pretty incredible women in my life both here in new york and also girlfriends who live elsewhere around the world that i still feel really close to even when we aren’t in the same few blocks radius. they are women who aren’t just inspiring in the ways they conduct themselves with their family life or careers, but they are often doing good and serving people around them (usually under any public radar), always speaking kind words about one another and others and regularly leave me feeling inspired to do something better or try something new or just anxiously awaiting the next time we can get together....

while we were in boston last week, we went on an actual real treasure hunt with the kiddos and tried our hand at geocaching for the first time! have you guys ever done this?! i didn’t even know this was a thing until recently, but it was so much fun and we are hooked! using tech like a mobile device or gps to check your coordinates markings, you can physically explore your area and find and log geocaches (that’s what is hidden....
