Sometimes I look at his little hands and feet and find myself marvelling again at the human body...I grew those perfect little digits inside me and now he uses them everyday to try and crawl, to feed himself little snacks, to stroke my arm when I feed him. So perfect. #parenting #nearly7monthsold! #babyboy #babyfeet #gratefulsunday #perfect #family #love #thehumanbodyisawesome #chichester #southcoast
In honour of my mamma who passed on this day. A few things she taught me: ~ the beauty of compassion ~ that babies are magical beings capable of bringing a smile to the most suffering ~ that everyone is worthy of kindness ~ to not ever judge a book by it's cover ~ to love even those who have hurt us ~ buying blush is a waste of money when lipstick does the job better ~ how important it is to know how to cook ~ how to sew ~ how to look after other people ~ to find beauty in the small things ~ that suffering can be transcended by strength and the will to live ~ that love is all we ever truly have, it lives with us but it does not die with us ~ that words matter ~ that reading opens your mind and your world ~ to stand up for what you believe in ~ imagination is a gift ~ self love ~ ~ ~ and so much more....our mothers are the vehicle through which we enter this world. They are one of our greatest teachers. My mother was not an idealised version of a mother, but she was mine and she loved me more than I can even imagine. She taught me so many things, at times I was able to learn from her mistakes and these learnings are just as valuable. Remember, mothers are humans too, like us they are not infallible. Be grateful for all of the ways they have taught us how to be, and all of the ways they have also taught us how not to be. Whether they are here or not, thank them ~ I will never forget her words to me that last time I saw her "go and do all the things I couldn't do" every day I remember this teaching, life is precious, don't waste it. Love. ~ image: Day Maiden by Kris Chau, when I saw this I saw her in all of her vibrant glory ❤️❤️❤️
#GratefulSunday continues with two of the most important men in my life!!! - Handstands with my brother and Dad!! Because it's not enough that they're the most amazing, selfless and humble men I know, but they can also get upside down with me!! - #luckylady #EsquerFamilyVaca2015 #stillholdingguys #100takeslater

So many times I take what I have for granted, something as little as the beach... There is so much happiness in this picture because I am grateful of what I have, be it the beach, another chance at life every time I wake up or the hero I call my DAD! #GratefulSunday #FathersDay #SomewhereInEL #Happiness ❤ ❤
Today i feel grateful for being healthy, alive, full of hope and optimistic about the future. And that I am strong in changing my attitude and feeling happy in my environment.

Happy Father's Day to this stud muffin! I credit this handsome man for my love of books, Roger Miller, Willie Nelson, blue cheese and olives. Thank you for teaching me many life lessons- to drive a stick shift in the parking lot of DBCC, to keep up with my chemistry notes (a lesson that sunk in when I had to retake the 3rd semester of chemistry at UF 😂) and to avoid fistfights at all costs, but if I find myself involved to hit first and Really hard. Thanks for always knowing I was a strong and scrappy girl in all ways physical, emotional and spiritual, even when I didn't believe it. #greenturtlecay #abaco #bahamas circa 1987 #fathersday #2015 #thosecrazyrichardsons #gratefulsunday
This grateful Sunday was about the blessing of having someone take care of you and lovingly hold you while you are convinced your head will explode and your face will burn off. I honestly wouldn't know what to do without him. #the100dayproject #100dayproject #my100daysofgratitude #countyourblessings #100daysofhandlettering #attitudeofgratitude #handlettering #lettering #grateful #gratefulsunday #gratitude #writing #wordart #graphic #neuralgia #migraine #illustration #handdrawn #chronicpain #typo #typography #handtype #notebook #stabilo #fineliner #penart #handwriting 66/100
The old lady in the house has officially declared that both me and that little nasty thing is on her shitlist. But, I do see some progress in this hole "Ohana-lifestyle" we got going on here, small but a progress is still a progress 😆 #devonrex #cornishrex #kitten #thedailykitten #catsofinstagram #catsforlife #shitlist #progress #inlove #gratefulsunday
#GratefulSunday I have never imagined that I will be teaching yoga as a profession and hobby. All I knew is that I had a soft whisper in my mind while I was in savasana on my 5th ashtanga yoga session, that says, "I want to share and teach this to others and let them feel how good it is to feel this way". I am happy that I pursued teaching yoga despite of so many challenges in life and in practice. I am glad I listened to the small spark of passion inside me, and how everything works out smoothly up to this point in my life. The success in my teaching is not coming from the number of classes I have or can be measured in monetary value. It is from seeing my student's eyes lit up when they finally understand the pose, how their smiles spread across their face after savasana, how they said that attending yoga class makes them a better person, how they become empowered and confident in themselves, how they accept and love themselves and how they close their eyes to say thanks. My heart has been so full and filled with gratitude to you, God. (Legs up on the wall and foam rolling. Taking the time off to take care of my back and knee that are quite out of sorts since yesterday. Just breathing and looking at the beautiful sky and listening to birds. Perfect. 😌) #DhyDhyana #06142015 #SoulStirring
Wow! Thank you @myheroproject for these gorgeous handmade in Africa upcycled birds to recognize our work for music education. We 💙🎶📚!

Growing up I had minimal extended family nearby. Instead, I was surrounded by close family friends...some pretty great, smart, funny and interesting people who loved the heck out of me. I'm grateful that Starlite gets to have that, too. Very thankful for our little tribe who loves the heck out of me and my girl. #friendsarefamily #gowheretheloveis #yogaeverydamnday #grateful #gratefulsunday #bikiniyoga @linnyprim @ginger_biskit @katiehavs
