Last night we heard a baby kitten call for its mom and I — a dog person who’s sort of afraid of cats — nearly went outside with a bowl of milk because the little meows tugged at my heartstrings so much. Do cats even really drink milk or did the Aristocats lie to me? Anyway, happy Monday friends.✨ Let’s us norcal-ers enjoy the 86 degree weather before we jump back up to the hundreds. 🌞 #casitadehood#dizzyporizzy
I usually can't take pictures of animals, because I have to get too close with my phone, and they run off. But this daddy longlegs calmly posed as I got down right next to it. Have a good Monday and start to the week, friends! 😊
It' the last week of June! What? How? Why?? 😅
This photo was taken yesterday and I totally forgot to post it. 🙈 I made some banana, peanut butter, and oat pancakes. It's my first time making them and I really love it. 😋 Anyway, I managed to read for 6 hours and 11 minutes over the weekends so it means I failed the #8intwo readathon. 😅 It's totally fine because I still get to read and finished My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh I gave it a 4 out of 5-star rating. 👌🏼 I'll share my full review on the release day (July 10). I also read a couple of pages from Providence by Caroline Kepnes. Now i'm not sure how to feel about this book. It was not what I was expecting. The theme is totally different from You and Hidden Bodies. Still, it's pretty interesting and perfect for fans of H.P. Lovecraft. It's already out so you might want to check on it.

We’re one short flight away from our home for the summer and I think it’s finally begun to sink in! 😬 We’ll be living in Florence for a study abroad program for my MFA for the next seven weeks - painting all week and eagerly adventuring on the weekends. It’s been far too long since I’ve traveled overseas (10 years!?) and my exploring skills are rusty... what advice or recommendations do you have, friends? What is a “must do” for our time in this incredible country? 🇮🇹
A local fisherman hunts for fish in the lake. This is the kind of quiet that you could turn towards working on reducing noise in your life, integrating that little bit of quietness.
Has the world become too noisy? Look for green spaces in which to disconnect from the mundane routine, even if just for a few minutes a day. #silentheart#mindfulmoments#ofquietmoments#enjoynature
As part of my efforts to focus on the things I love about summer I’m sorting out the books I’ll be taking on my summer holiday. I’m so looking forward to lying on a sun lounger reading these over the school holidays. What have you got lined up to read this summer? [I’ve written all about these on my blog] #booksandbotanicals
This wondrous body of water is Orbetello, just a few km away from us. It looks like a normal lagoon like many others, but in reality it is the home of extraordinary wild animals: migratory birds, foxes and badgers. And it’s always a beautiful surprise meeting them along the way.
Questo meraviglioso specchio di acqua è Orbetello, a pochi chilometri da noi. Sembra una laguna come un’altra ma in realtà è popolata da straordinari animali selvatici: uccelli migratori, volpi, tassi. E è sempre una bella sorpresa avere il piacere di incontrarli lungo il cammino.
Shady corners hidden from watchful eyes, marking the suns passage across the skies..🌿

Monday morning moments and a busy day ahead! What are your plans? Hope you have a great start to the week!
How about we all have a few breath breaks today? Let’s not talk about meditation, or mindfulness, lets go back to basics and just. breathe.
Taking conscious breaths throughout your day will: improve your concentration, improve fatigue, lower blood pressure, lower stress hormones, improve your digestion, boost your immune system, support your hormones. You will. feel. good.
Observe a child or a pet breathing and you will notice that they are using their diaphragm, a muscle which we underutilise in our body.
To engage your diaphragm with your breathing, place your hands around your rib cage like mine and imagine it expanding like a big smile. On the out breath imagine and feel your ribs contracting down. Repeat.
Take care not to overdo it as you may feel lightheaded and dizzy. But as you move through your day today, send a little love to your diaphragm.
It isn’t often that I get to enjoy an entirely ‘horsey’ weekend. What with friends to see, family to spend time with and a to do list that never seems to end, spending two solid days at the yard is a rarity. But I managed it this weekend and it was just what I needed. After a few busy weeks, a weekend spent showjumping with my fave yellow pony, relaxing in the sun and just enjoying the fact that I have a horse that I can pamper was pure bliss. ****
How did you spend your weekend?
