4th Trimester Bodies Project

I am learning to appreciate this body everyday and at very size. I am learning to appreciate this body that has experienced 3 miscarriages, carries 3 babies to term, birthed 3 amazing beings, has nursed 55 months and counting, has carried my children as bitty babies, wiggly toddlers and heavy big kids. It has hiked hundreds of miles and run races. It has been a variety of sizes, weights, and it has also been hated for so long despite all of the amazing things it has done. So while I am a still working to be happy at every size while still working on feeling stronger and confident in my body I now have these images to hold with me. I mean look how incredible my family is. Look at those sweet faces. Look at us together ❤// stay tuned for my whole story on @4thtribodies in the coming weeks ❤

Blog On Vacation

Happy Holidays! I will be taking a short break from blogging for the holidays. I’ll be back in the new year with a ton of new content that I have been working on behind the scenes. I plan to be back January 2nd but until then you can find me on Instagram.

Life.

I am so much to share with you right now but alas life has been a bit crazy! I have so many things to share from rain gear, to animals, to museums and so much more. This weekend we are going on a family/anniversary getaway so I should be back next week with more time and lots more posts.

Until then you can follow us on Instagram!

Quick Check-in | January, Sickness & What’s To Come

edith and alder

I know it’s been awhile since I last posted. It seems that life has just gotten in the way. We ended January on a pretty cranky note that resulted in little sleep and everything that could go wrong seemed to go wrong. February started off pretty good until last week when we all got hit with the stomach bug. So here we are now. While we all seem to be getting better our house is pure disaster, none of us have had a real meal in days – mostly because our stomachs just won’t allow us to and the to do list has quadrupled.

I’m hoping that this is the last of the sickness and that we can get the house back to normal and get back on track. We have a number of exciting adventures coming up in the next few months that we are hoping to share and some new fun content. So don’t worry we are still here and will be back regularly soon. Until then you can check out our updates on Instagram.

Finding Balance

It really hasn’t been my intention to let my posting on Naturally Family fall to the wayside but it seems that it has. I am just having a hard time finding the balance between my life as a mom, a partner, a blogger and everything in between. Unfortunately Naturally Family has taken a bit of a backseat. That’s not to say that Naturally Family is going anywhere; I actually have a good 10-15 posts already started, photos edited or ideas jotted down or recorded in the notes section of my phone. It just means post are coming at slower rate as I find the balance in life. In the meantime you can keep up with us on Instagram.

 

The Future of Naturally Family | Reader Requests

edithandalder_0057

Hello Friends!

These breaks between blog posts are much longer than I would like and I can’t remember if I said this in a previous post or not but we are having some real sleep struggles over here which have resulted in Neil and I switching off nights that we hold Alder. It’s exhausting and time consuming but it’s what is working right now – well rather it’s the only thing that is working. This means blogging has taken a mini backseat and not because I don’t have anything to share but rather that I have a hard time typing with one hand.

Anyways this little break is actually not a terrible thing because it’s giving me chance to start thinking about giving Naturally Family a little more structure when it comes to posting. I’d like to share some regular monthly posts such as a regular toddler/baby meal or recipe, a glance at what we are reading, a day in the life style post and basically whatever else you might be interested in reading on a regular basis. On top of that I’ll be throwing in some additional posts here and there based on what we have been up to lately, anything of family related interest and I’m thinking I should share our unschooling journey that is just really starting to take shape.

That all being said I’d love to hear what you would like to see more of on NF whether it is a regular monthly or weekly post, specific questions you have or maybe a series of posts. Let me/us know below!

Quick Update!

IngalweathersDoTheCoast_2034

Hi Friends!

Sorry for such a long time between posts. Things have been kind of crazy here after the holidays and both kids and Neil have been since the past week. I’ve got a bunch of new fun blog projects in the works and can’t wait to get regular posting. That being said you can expect a new post tomorrow!

 

XO.

Holiday Break

Streets Of Tanasbourne Tree Childrens Museum - NaturallyFamily - Seasons Greetings

Hello friends! It has been awhile since we last posted and as you can imagine with the holidays we have been busy! We are taking a few more days off to relax as a family. We will be back in the New Year! Cheers!

Photo Dump

Hello! I know it’s been awhile since we have written much here but don’t worry we are still around! We are refocusing and organizing the blog (and our house).  Speaking as myself (Lindsay) I have been stepping back from the computer more during the day to focus on our mountain of laundry, piles of dishes and of course the kids. That being said we now have a clean and mostly organized office so Neil and I have started spending out nights down in the office working on things which means more focused energy on our sites and various projects. So for now I am going to share some photos from our phones that we have been holding on to. Enjoy!
