Hello August!

The past few months have been a busy, busy blur (hence the long absence from this space). We greeted August by ‘glamping’ in this wonderful site. We savoured the simplicity, the sweetness and the slowness. There was no WiFi connection…only the connections with each other. And there were daily visits from peacocks 🙂 Here are some snapshots from our summer holiday…















Hope you’re all having a wonderful summer!

A Friday ritual inspired by SouleMama. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment to pause, savour and remember.

May your weekend be happy and filled with sweet flower chains!

Mind Body Love – an eBook

bookcover small


Here’s something sweet and lovely for Mother’s Day. I know UK Mother’s Day was a few weeks ago, but this is also for all my UK mama friends; in fact, it’s for moms everywhere. It’s a collaboration I’m so very honoured and thrilled to be a part of…

Mind Body Love is an e-book for mothers by mothers. This book was created to inspire you the mama, to take care of yourself. Not your kids, not your family, YOU. It is filled with recipes, crafty projects, exercise advice and lots of inspirational words to lift you up when days are tough. It is a collaborative effort of a dozen mindful mama bloggers who inspire us daily with their craftiness, yummy recipes, words of wisdom and wit.

Our contributors are:

Stephinie Miner
Lisa Coffee
Renee Last
Kim Corrigan-Oliver
Kathy Stowell
Lisa Hassan Scott
Meryl Carver-Allmond
KC Pagano

This book was born one day in the middle of winter when KC happened to be reading Meryl’s blog. That particular post inspired her, uplifted her and suddenly the idea for the book popped into her head. A book that would inspire mothers to take time for themselves. She then contacted Meryl to see if she would join forces with her in creating an inspiring resource for mothers.

All the proceeds for this book will go to the charity Rescue Gifts – an organization that donates supplies to labouring mothers in third world countries.
