A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2014.

Tom: We planted an Australian White Cedar in the back corner of our yard. Tom found a little berry it produced and naturally I took a picture of it in his hands.. we then googled together if they were poisonous and low and behold... humans and dogs should not consume!
Grace: Waiting, waiting, waiting. 

This week has been just plain crazy. My house is a whirlwind of destruction. The end of term can't come soon enough. We are all tired and cranky. On the plus side this weather has been providing in relation to my hunters and gatherers.. beautiful fish, mud crabs and eastern rock lobsters have been making a regular appearance on the menu. Spoilt.

Grace: She was leaning against the wall chatting to me while I was cooking dinner, I went and picked up the camera as I loved the way the light was falling on her sweet profile
Tom: Taken during a walk around the block, a ritual we have after school to wind down and get Mollie out of the house

This week has been a week of re-evaluation and reflection (fitting for this weeks image of Tom). Collaborating with the beautiful girls from Wholehearted has opened my mind to so many things - I have connected with them more than I ever thought I would. We have been sharing our own personal stories with each other, acknowledging our different challenges, thoughts and ideas on parenthood and life.

It has been healing for many.

Identifying strengths and weaknesses we have as individuals and our motherhood journey has resonated with so many of our readers. Differences we all have are our commonality.

A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2014.

Grace: As beautiful as she is, the inner goof is always present
Tom: In the late afternoon sun, hanging off the back fence

This week saw the launch of a joint collaboration which I am totally thrilled to be a part of. Wholehearted - A Journal, is a space where women can come together and join forces and share stories about the rollercoaster ride that is parenthood. Come on over and have a look, you'll be pleasantly suprised to see it isn't all clean faces, tidy houses and good manners...

life with jane

Jane and her trio, Jono, Duke & Errol. 

This woman is something of an inspiration. She has broad shoulders, a warm smile, firm beliefs and wears her heart on her sleeve. She digs her heels in when she wants to see something through, yet she lets her life lead her as it will. She is surrounded by three beautiful boys, all of them look at her with such love and adoration. Life with Jane is so sweet.

Tom: the amount of bribery to get him to do his homework is unreal.
Grace: It was warmer in the ocean.

Monochromatic images for week 9. I overlooked this image of Gracie initially but I picked it as it seems fitting for the last week of summer.
