After writing this post, I decided I needed make some changes and simplify our life. I have cut back on work and am instead refocusing my time on our children. Days have been slow, my mind isn't racing from one thing to the next, I've been more present, I have exercised and consciously made time for myself each day, even if just a moment.
I think life this way just works better for us, all of us.

I've got a soft spot for delicious linen, bedding and cushions. And have been lusting over these beauties for some time now. Warm textures, florals, patterns and vibrant colours perfect for snuggling up in the cooler weather.
I'm bringing back my favourite things posts, after an unscheduled break from them (I've been trying to think of a better name for this collection series, any ideas?)

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."
Lyla: A little happy dance. Kite flying and sun shining, whats not to be happy about?
Riley: My sweet boy, always picking flowers for his Mummy.

It's been a little quiet here of late, apart from the odd posts about our week and some portraits that is.
The space in between is busy. Days are filled with work, kids, life and then some more work. I'm finding it difficult to find a balance between it all. Being a stay at home Mum and working two jobs from home is hard.
At times I feel overwhelmed by it all, my head is a jumble thoughts as I struggle to focus on one thing or another. I know I'm complaining, it really is all by choice, we have never wanted to put our kids in childcare and I do enjoy working, it's just balance that needs to be restored, boundaries set, routines made. I long to fit some more me time in, to exercise, write, take photographs and do all the things that I want to do.
I want to do it all.
Will there ever be enough time?
How do you manage your time?
