We had the biggest honour of meeting Sunnies half biological sister today!
Little miss J is the first baby mama Oon placed into adoption just over 4 years ago.
OK AND LOOK AT THIS! We were taking a bunch of cute photos and then I caught this candid moment with them MAKING THE SAME FACE! It just blows my mind how similar they are... I am forever grateful for this gift of adoption and all the family connections it has brought us. (Also, it’s so cool to see what Sunnie could very well look like in 4 years from now.. J looks so much like Sunnie in her baby pictures!)
Lately I’ve been dwelling on past situations that have been completely unhealthy for me. It wasn’t until recently (today) that it dawned on me that I had been judging myself and the people of my past and blaming them for unhealthy choices that I caused on myself. Today I sought guidance and was rewarded with the perfect affirmation for my ever inflicting thoughts of my past. Maybe someone needs this or can relate so I want to share it.
Kuan Yin : COMPASSION.
“Release judgments about yourself and others, and focus on the love and light within everyone.” It’s important to release guilt and Shame for healing and transmutation. It’s essential to your self-care, and it’s healing for the mind and soul.
ONE MONTH || We are late about 4 days...so goes being the third child. 😬 We can’t believe Wallace is already one month! Life with him is flying by! He is such a sweet baby! He loves snuggling, tooting up a storm 🙈, cluster feeding at night, and a whole lotta sleeping. He even gives us a good stretch at night. The big sis and bro are still quite smitten with him. Linnea just can’t stop giving him kissing and demanding to carry him. #wallaceirving
I love those moments when I arrive really early at the masjid and I have some time alone. It's quiet and serene. Another feeling that comes a bit close to that is the feeling of waking up for Tahajjud. It feels like...... Success! "Hayya alal Falah - Rush to success" 😀 ----
O Allah, help us to remember you, to be grateful to You, and to worship You in an excellent manner. Amīn.
Can you believe summer is coming to a close?!
The end of summer is bitter sweet for M+A. As we say goodbye to warm weather and the carefree vibes of sunshine season we will be saying goodbye to the Spring 18 collection. It began its journey over a year ago when I started building this business and was the heart that launch Mae and August six months ago. I am proud of this collection and so thankful for the love you have shown it. I am sad to see it go, but as we say farewell to Spring 18 we will welcome two more garments into The Basics Collection and that is something to celebrate! I will be sharing more about our newest additions in the coming weeks. .
There is growth happening around here and I can't thank you enough for being a part of it! 🖤
All of this ash falling from smoke filled skies has me seriously dreaming of winter! I LOVE winter - I blame all the sparkly snow. ❄️ This pic is from almost 5 years ago - a snowshoe adventure we took through lightening lakes. What a magical place both in the summer & winter. .
The tile cache at @mercurymosaics. I wanted to take home one of ev-er-y-thing, including the library ladder! Not pictured: Sylvie running in exploratory circles with my parents attempting to keep up. #handmademodernhome
