Madison is baby number 4 for me, she was my 4th C-Section. My body has changed so much, my hips are wider and I carry extra weight, which doesn’t seem to want to move. I have a facet joint back injury (sustained during pregnancy ) which stops me from exercising. Accepting my new body Has been really hard on me emotionally and physically. I lack motivation as for me I like to exercise to feel good and keep my making healthy choices. One thing I am however conscious of is I know how body image can shape a young girls mind... I know I don’t want Madison growing up seeing me pointing out my flaws everytime I look in the mirror, try on bathers or even get dressed. I am really trying to appreciate this vessel that gave me my amazing kids. I never want Madison to grow up with the stigmas I did about body image that still affect me today as a grown woman!so yes I have postpartum body blues but it’s important to me I set an example for my kids and push through and find away to be healthy and happy and accept this amazing body , stretch marks, wobbly bits and all! #postpartumbody#postpartumfitness
The cheekiest face I ever did see!
This is from a few months ago (Sol 5months). I take so many damn photos it takes me ages to get to them! I don’t like spending hours on social media but editing photos chews up a hell of a lot of time! #milkbathphotography#milkbath

How cute is this artwork that @thebrewedartisty put together of us? I just love how beautifully she’s captured who we are! Thank you so much Ashley, you’re such a talented soul.
Tomorrow we leave for Santorini and it’s only really hit us now that we’re only going to be less than half our normal adventure crew! I know we’re going to have a ball and that all of our girls are going to love spending time with their Grandparents and Auntie but also know we’re going to miss them while we’re sipping cocktails looking out over the ocean... in peace... yeah, we’ll miss them but we’ll make the most of it I’m sure! 😂 🍹 💃 🕺 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PS. If you love beautiful things you should go and visit Ashley and Sophie at @homeonwest!
We had such an amazing time backpacking through Switzerland, France and Belgium during our interrailtrip last July. Of course we had to stop in Paris where we spent 2 wonderful days. We visited the Eiffel tower (of course!), the Sacre Coeur and Montmartre, the Centre Pompidou, many, many, many playgrounds and carousels and walked by the Seine. And of course we enjoyed some of the (😉) famous Crêpes... The Creperies are very nice, the Crêpes tasted really good, but we recommend to try some street-food Crêpes "to-go"...they are DELICIOUS!
Paris, we will be back some day!
Wir hatten eine wunderschöne und sehr entspannte Interrail-Reise durch die Schweiz, Frankreich und Belgien, vergangenen Juli. Natürlich durfte auch Paris als Zwischenstopp nicht fehlen! Wir verbrachten dort zwei wirklich schöne Tage, besuchten den Eiffelturm (natürlich!), das Sacre Coeur und das schöne Montmartre-Viertel, das Centre Pompidou und den Stravinskybrunnen, viele, viele Spielplätze...Der Spaziergang am belebten Seine-Ufer, in der Nähe des Louvre war ein Highlight.
Die berühmten Crêpes sind köstlich, lasst euch die Crêpes "to go" an einem der vielen Straßenstände nicht entgehen!
"Do not let your adorning be external - the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear - but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious." (1 Peter 3:3-4) #🌊
