Just had the best couple of days on Nusa Lembongan and finally after years of trying not only swam with one turtle 🐢 but had a visit from his turtle 🐢 friend. Topped off with a lovely Arvo chillin and outstanding sunset with my bestie @wends.smith #lembongan#turtlefriends thanks to @ceninganparadise_adventures #dateweek
I know it’s been quiet over here ... I’m off on an adventure with my husband and great friends. It’s been amazing ...we are having so much fun. We miss our kids ... but I think they are having just as much fun.
We are back on the farm after one incredible week! An adults-only getaway to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with a sunset cruise to The Arch + Lovers Beach, swim up bars and full-service cabanas, delicious dinners with ridiculous views...and one dreamy sunset on our last night. We loved every minute and soaked it all in, but in true homebody fashion...we couldn’t get home fast enough yesterday to our farm girl and farm animals. It takes a village to keep things running at home- we are lucky to have parents, friends + neighbors who always help out, and we couldn’t enjoy life to the fullest without them. ❤️
Rolling into this week like 🙌🏻. This 7 hour train ride through the mountains of Norway from Bergen to Oslo has me in complete awe of this life. I can feel the spark of creativity and inspiration come alive as I shed the layers of the day to day tasks that busy me in the hustle...the “should-get-dones”. ⠀
I want to remember this, and perhaps remind you, that distractions are always pulling us from going deeper in ourselves. Saying “hey, what do you need?”. Find ways to disconnect (but reconnect) in stillness, wonder and adventure. Wishing the kids were here with us but grateful for the space to re-learn this so I can apply it when I return.
Hotel Room Workout, Ready? 💁♀️

No hotel gym here so used what I could to get breathless and burning (lower body focus) and moved on. Off to explore Norway!
Het weekend zijn we met zijn drieën naar Friesland ♥️ Aansluitend ga ik samen weg met deze mooierd. Met zijn tweeën omdat we er 12,5 jaar geleden voor kozen om samen te zijn en sinds die dag elke dag. Zelfs nu we samen met z’n drieën zijn is het fijn soms nog even echt mijn zijn tweeën te zijn. Om met elkaar te beleven te praten te ontdekken en vooral niet over 18 jaar zeggen Hey: ‘Wie was jij ook alweer?’
Wait, what?! We don’t have kids for the next 7 days? 🙊 So, like, I’m gonna finish my thoughts and not inhale my meals? Mood: 💁♀️
I’ll be dying for interrupted meals and “hurricane brain” in under 48 hours...mark my words! Norway...her kommer jeg.
