Magical sunset   @figtrees  _cottage and so ends our holiday in Orange...A big thankyou to our very warm and gracious airbnb hosts who went above and beyond to make our place feel like home and our stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible. Even after we arrived with a very tired and cranky toddler in tow!! Only wish we could've stayed a bit longer to enjoy a wine with them but we'll definitely be back next time to make up for it. Highlights would have to be catching up with family, relaxing on the farm and enjoying the sunset views from our little juliet balcony. There's just something so beautiful about being out in the country. Life moves at such a slower pace and you feel so intimately connected with nature and the change of seasons. Meanwhile, we might be back to a very cold and grey Melbourne but goodbye winter, hello Spring!! 😊🙋💖🌱🌼🌹🌻🎉  #homesweethome     #homeawayfromhome     #holiday     #travel     #escape     #freedom     #fun     #orangensw     #magical     #sunset     #views     #hello     #spring     #september     #sunshine     #bluesky     #mothernature     #mumlife     #familytime     #countrylife     #farmhouse     #rest     #relax     #recharge     #slowdown     #instalove     #instahappy     #instamoment     #featherandsparrow     #melbourne

Erma the dog, Tilly the pony and fun on the farm   @heiferstationwines   This winery wins hands down for the fact that it caters to both kiddies and adults...ding, ding!! Oh and the wines aren't bad either 😉 Finn had fun with all the farm animals whilst we got to sit and have a wine tasting outside in the sun. Best of all if you do come mid-week you'll have the sandpit (ahem) the place pretty much to yourself. All the wines are beautiful but of course our faves were the Riesling, Rośe and Pinot noir. We've learnt a lot about the region here in central NSW and yet even with the draught it's good to see some businesses still thriving. Speaks a lot about the character and spirit of the people living out here in the country and as heartbreaking as it is to see, everywhere you go you hear stories of survival. Grateful we could do our little bit to support local businesses but just goes to show you can never give up hope!! 😊🐶🐓🐎🍷💕   #holiday     #happysnaps     #heiferstation     #travel     #escape     #freedom     #fun     #adventure     #familytime     #farmlife     #countrylife     #winery     #daytrip     #orangensw     #hope     #faith     #love     #inspiration     #stories     #strength     #survival     #nevergiveup     #instahappy     #instalove     #instamoment     #thursdaythoughts     #featherandsparrow     #melbourne

What is self-care to you and what does it look like? These are questions I've been asking myself ever since we arrived here on the farm but sick with a cold and losing my voice I realised they'd been hard to answer. Here we are on holidays and I felt like total crap!! 😂 😷😭 So yesterday I finally listened to my body and did nothing but rest on the couch with a beautiful (and very apt) coffee table book that was just what I needed to read. Best decision ever. Sounds obvious but sometimes we forget to listen and honour our need to just relax and recharge the batteries. It's ok to say no!! 😊🙌💕   #timeout     #rest     #recharge     #relax     #stop     #breathe     #slowdown     #letgo     #nurture     #nourish     #selfcare     #selflove     #holiday     #travel     #metime     #meditation     #mindfulness     #books     #reading     #afternoon     #sun     #peace     #calm     #quiet     #solitude     #happiness     #joy     #wellbeing     #featherandsparrow     #melbourne

These two...and that incredible bond between father and son is so beautiful to watch. He may not have been able to have that relationship with his own dad but he's more than making up for it with Finn. Sometimes life has a funny way of coming full circle like that. I am so so happy and grateful for this and proud of them both!!😊💖🌷  #happyfathersday     #fatherandson     #daddytime     #family     #fatherhood     #dadlife     #beautiful     #precious     #moment     #special     #bond     #blessings     #karma     #grateful     #proudmama     #blackandwhite     #photo     #myboys     #myheart     #mysoul     #motherhood     #parenthood     #mumlife     #sundayfunday     #happiness     #healing     #hope     #love     #featherandsparrow     #melbourne

Sunrise at Mt Buller...taken 7yrs ago today. That first moment of the day when dawn is turning brilliant shades of dusty pinks, dark grey turns to earthy greens and warm hues of golden yellows and orange illuminate the horizon. Doesn't matter what it is but we need to meditate on something like this first thing in the morning and affirm 'I am as strong and steady as that mountain...' my mind is as peaceful, calm and expansive as that sky and my energy is as warm and radiant as the rising sun. It fills me up, flows through my body and radiates out from me in all directions and returns to me multiplied. The exchange is infinite and eternal. Imagine yourself standing there breathing in the fresh, crisp cool air and know that deep down all is well. Ground yourself in the beauty of nature and just breathe!! 10mins a day is all you need. Today I am starting a spiritual, mental and emotional detox of anything that is no longer in line with my truth. I will detach from negative news stories, monitor my internal thoughts and dialogue and adjust what I say to myself and others...😊💖🙏   #affirmations     #morning     #sunrise     #meditation     #mindfulness     #creativity     #healing     #energy     #detox     #nature     #mountain     #trees     #motherearth     #peace     #calm     #faith     #hope     #dawn     #newday     #newbeginnings     #stop     #slowdown     #breathe     #tbt     #thursdaythoughts     #instalove     #instahappy     #instamoment     #featherandsparrow     #melbourne

Things I will tell Finn as he grows up... It's ok to daydream some of the greatest minds are dreamers!! You are enough...you were born perfect and always will be. You are worthy and you are so very loved. You deserve everything life has to offer. Take it with both hands and run Nothing. I MEAN NOTHING is impossible Everything is possible!! life changes...and so will you. This is natural. flow with life and it will flow with you Go gently, show compassion...be kind to yourself and others. Work for peace in your heart and in the world. Be the best version of yourself you can be Remember to stop, slow down and take breaks. There is a natural order to life between action and non action. Go crazy. Dance, Be silly. have fun and be happy. Believe in magic. Never give up on life and love. Have faith in yourself and others. Look for the good in everyone Trust that everything in life happens for a reason. Be brave and strong but remember it's ok to feel weak and vulnerable sometimes. Happiness is not measured in doing or having, but in being. Have the courage to live your life on purpose and don't be afraid to follow your dreams/heart.   #wisdomwednesday     #truth     #beauty     #peace     #love     #joy     #art     #artist     #instaart     #creative     #mindfulness     #meditation     #wordstoliveby     #children     #childhood     #imagination     #inspiration     #magic     #play     #draw     #paint     #sing     #dance     #beyourself     #bekind     #followyourheart     #selflove     #selfcare     #featherandsparrow     #melbourne

Sunlight catching the cover of the latest book I'm reading...speaks for itself!! 'Don't Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle' - Doreen Virtue. Have been wanting to read this one for AGES so call it coincidence or divine timing but when I saw it on my friend's bookshelf I knew it was a sign when she let me borrow it (thanks Anna!!). So far it's been a really interesting read but for anyone who may or may not be a fan of Doreen given the controversy of her recent decision to become a born again Christian and shun all her books/cards and teachings on angels and new agey spiritualism, I can understand the skepticism. Of course at first I was too, given let's face it she's made a lot of money from her humble beginnings as the 'angel lady' but I guess we need to respect everyone's spiritual growth and evolution as an extremely personal one. Whatever path she may be on now I wish her well but the fact that her books and cards are still bringing a lot of love, light and healing to this world means there must be some truth and wisdom to her words that can't be discounted. For what it's worth, I've always felt and sensed there was something far greater than ourselves out there in the universe because far too much has happened for me to believe otherwise!! 😇💫💕  #books     #reading     #writing     #inspiration     #angels     #spirit     #selflove     #selfcare     #loveyourself     #sparkle     #shine     #universe     #lawofattraction     #believe     #followyourheart     #hope     #faith     #truth     #beauty     #wisdom     #peace     #love     #joy     #blessings     #transformationtuesday     #instalove     #instahappy     #instamoment     #featherandsparrow     #melbourne

Happy Friday peeps!! What are you reading today?? I've got a copy of one of my fave magazines from the library that I will attempt to read this weekend. 😂 (notice the word attempt) as reading a book or magazine is usually a bit of a luxury these days, esp as a busy mum but if you're a creative like me, reading is an absolute must!! As the title suggests it's more of a thinking women's mag so I love the stories rich with powerful prose and empowering themes. The two stories on the cover are 'The art of possibility' and 'The courage to create'...perfect!! Just what you need for a bit inspo on this cold and rainy day. 'Winter is on my head but eternal spring is in my heart.' -Victor Hugo🌞🌱🌼💕  #eternal     #optimist     #art     #artist     #instaart     #creative     #inspiration     #mindfulness     #meditation     #books     #reading     #writing     #words     #heartsong     #womankind     #weekend     #happyfriday     #tgif     #beauty     #peace     #love     #happiness     #power     #strongwomen     #stories     #sahm     #motherhood     #mumlife     #featherandsparrow     #melbourne

Everything in life is an energy exchange...the trees, mountains, oceans and rivers. So are we. What you put out to the universe you get back. Once we become intuitively aware of this everything changes. People, places and situations that we attract into our life will magically shift in order to match a vibration or frequency equal to our own. If we imagine that we are infinite, abundant and powerful beings of light and love and honour this as our truth then we start to live life more consciously aware and on purpose (without fear of what society thinks!!). There is so much beauty, kindness and love in the world if only we would stop to notice and breathe it all in. Be humbled and grateful in this knowledge and acknowledge your truth today. Simply stop, become more aware of your surroundings and feel your soul being uplifted and supported back to life...😊💕🌲🌱💫   #universe     #energy     #creative     #infinite     #abundance     #inspiration     #magical     #moment     #nature     #sunlight     #trees     #truth     #beauty     #peace     #love     #happiness     #joy     #blessings     #powerful     #mindful     #meditation     #spirit     #soul     #stop     #slowdown     #instahappy     #instalove     #instamoment     #featherandsparrow     #melbourne

  #wellnesswednesday   I may be back in cold wintry melbs 😣 but at least there's always a colourful, quirky meme to remind me otherwise. So go on...be the pineapple cos if it's one thing this trip has taught me it's not to take life so effing seriously. Go out there and do what makes your heart sing and brings you the most joy. Simple as that. Be kinder, loving, and more compassionate towards yourself and others. Wear the crown like you own it and are worthy of all good things in your life.This is an essential part of self-care and being creative so today I'm writing down all the ways I can bring some of that holiday sunshine back into my life and listed them in the hastags...think less, do more!! 😉💖🍍  #holiday     #adventure     #travel     #naturewalk     #reading     #writing     #drawing     #painting     #art     #meditation     #mindfulness     #magic     #creative     #play     #daydreaming     #dancing     #talking     #cooking     #laughing     #music     #friendship     #freedom     #fun     #family     #motherhood     #mumlife     #selfcare     #featherandsparrow     #melbourne

Standing at the limit of an endless ocean, stranded like a runaway, lost at sea...'Icehouse - Great Southern Land.' I didn't realise how much I was neglecting myself and needed a break until I got here. The warning signs were all there, tiredness, extreme exhaustion and loss of appetite were my constant companions but still I kept pushing through. Never wanting to admit to myself that I'd just had enough. I needed to be the strong one because I was the parent but underneath it all I just wanted to be the child. For once I needed to be taken care of in the same way I take care of Finn. Needed to laugh more, relax and let go. Live a little and be nurtured. As a mother you spend so much of your time taking care of others that you forget to take care of yourself but sometimes we're the ones that need to be parented. Standing there staring out onto that limitless expansive ocean I realised that I'm not alone in this. We're all human beings with the capacity to feel pain and sadness (that's life) and yet our suffering is optional if we realise this it is only in direct proportion to the depths of our ability to feel great peace, love and happiness in equal measure. Often at the same time and in every given moment. It's all a choice...which do you choose?   #peace     #love     #kindness     #happiness     #healing     #holiday     #escape     #travel     #relax     #recharge     #metime     #meditation     #mindfulness     #nurture     #spirit     #selfcare     #limitless     #expansive     #ocean     #infinite     #universe     #motherhood     #parenthood     #mumlife     #truth     #choices     #change     #transformationtuesday     #featherandsparrow     #melbourne
