Anyone know where the sunshine went ? I'm pretty sure it was masking a lot of my anxiety and worry because it all came back yesterday. . . The weight if the situation is enormous and we hscent reached the 'peak' yet. I'm worried either 6 kids were going to start struggling to get enough food or formula for coast... I'm worried that the boys are already struggling and it's only going to get worse. I'm not a mental health professional and I'm just doing the best i can to explain what's going on and support while trying to keep things normal when it's really....not. . . The girls are missing nanny and grandad so much and we face time them most days but the girls are getting so shy and embarrassed with them it breaks my heart. . . So here liberty in her new shoes a few days ago , when things felt just a little lighter. . .

Just keep going, guys. ​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ​I’ve spoken with multiple business specialists in the last few days, and they’ve all said the same thing, “if you can make it out the other side of all o’ this … you’ll enjoy market share”. ​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ​Look, it was eery [if I’m being honest]. ​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ​Y’see, I’m an empath. And thinking about increased market share makes me think there’ll be businesses who *won’t* come out of CV-19, and I just do-not-want that to be the reason for there being “more market share”. ​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ​Also, I don’t want to be the business that doesn’t make it out [that thought terrifies me. I have worked so-f*cking-HARD]. ​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ​With all that said guys … now’s the time to go “in” to your businesses. Less on, and more in. Just keep going. Be clever and strong. Keep some budget within paid ads [our clients are enjoying lower costs / bigger results, due to that aforementioned change in market share]. Keep committing to learning, and commit to upskilling in the areas your business was weak in. Lose the pride, lose your stoic, drop the ego, and DM people / send audio messages / ask for help from people in different fields … you’ll quickly realise how much help people want to be able to provide during these times. ​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ​Image credit – @lisakoesterke_illustration

Throwback for todays prompt #connect ❤️ Also, my baby can down a whole plum in one mouthful (👆🏻 this caught her mid-stuff 😆). Its equally impressive to watch and horrifying to changed her rear 🙊🤣🤣 #isolatewithtcog3 I spent part of my day making sandwich bread, banana bread, jelly loaves, english muffins, berry and pear sponge, muesli, and vegan stew inspired by @elavegan, part of my day fending off the hordes trying to eat everything in one sitting, and the rest of my day curled up by the fire reading. Is anyone else secretly loving the enforced quiet during this time or is that totally not pc to admit to? 😅

How’s everyone finding things?

Yup just another day hanging inside our four walls. But seriously treasuring the forced slowing down and family time. ⁣ What the best thing you did today? ⁣ Mine was watching Isaac make the yummiest pancakes - damn they were good. ⁣ FYI - it’s always eating with me ✨

Went on a family walk tonight to the store. For sure after like 4 days in the house in a roll I needed to get outside. Thank goodness for no rain today 🙌🏻.

A few more bits of sunshine ☀️ just because.

Anyone else feel like they’re trapped on a carousel, floating up and down between happy and anxious, grateful and sad and all the other emotions in between..knowing what a gift this time with our families is but, also knowing all that is going on outside these four walls is incredibly tragic..Everyday we’ve been listing the things we’re grateful for too keep our spirits up! This right here, the sunshine, wild flowers and my babies are always at the top of my list. Tell me something you’re thankful for today and for a good laugh share an emoji of what animal you’d be on a carousel? I’ll go first 🦄

• W H A T ‘ S M Y T A K E • ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Well, I believe the majority of the population was never going to slow down, reconnect, get back to home cooking, live with less, need less, stop the constant “what’s next” cycle without being forced to.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Now? We're just received the greatest permission slip ever. 💌 This is the biggest invitation that so many of us have desperately needed.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ We are now spared the FOMO, the guilt, the shame and all the mental junk that comes with slowing down and doing less.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ The whole world is being invited to take stock, refocus and redraw our priority lists. 📝⠀ ⠀ ⠀ So....I choose to celebrate this crazy reminder to all of us that mama earth has got things covered and that all we can do is take radical responsibility for our individual parts. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Here she is, as always 🌎 making big crazy sense.⠀ ⠀ Ps. Majority won - so going Live tomorrow night to chat more....see you there! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ From my heart to yours 🌿

A few more pictures from this beautiful spring day!

Today was the first time the kids and I left our property in 17 days. To be honest, it felt wrong, like I was breaking the law! 😆 But it was really nice to walk around the lake, smell the flowers and get some fresh air. It was Pfeiffer’s first time trying the scooter and, though it didn’t last long (not because she got bored but because it was seriously slowing us down 😂), it was fun to see her interest!

Right now the world may feel like it’s closing in on you, with all the rapid changes happening nearly by the minute, and I’m sure it feels overwhelming. Throughout the last few weeks our American lives have morphed from ones of relative comfort and peace to confusion and exhaustion - we looked forward to baseball games and concerts, dinners out with friends and trips to London. We planned brunches with our girlfriends and gave no thought to going to work. The supermarkets were fully stocked, the news was only reporting on the campaigns, and the little people of the world were looking forward to a long, glorious summer... Now, as strange as it feels to say, we don’t have any of that anymore. I’ve realized over the last week that the world is in a collective state of grief. We are in a state of active mourning but we can’t do a thing to understand why or change our circumstances; things that used to make us feel better are now banned, or simply unavailable, because they don’t adhere to the social distancing policies in place now. So, today, I went outside and I walked my dogs with my neighbors and mowed my lawn. Simple things, really, but they were so significant in what they represented to me: while I can’t go to Ulta to get my perfume, I can spend quality time with my friends and my animals. And the movie theaters are closed but that gives me more time to reconnect with my land, my home, my earth. While I mowed my massive front lawn, I listened to a book I’d been meaning to listen to and was able to really, truly, enjoy my mowing. For the first time ever, it didn’t feel like a chore, it felt like a reprieve from *waves hand* everything... And what I’m hoping for all of us during this time is this: that the things we’ve been putting off will become things we want to do. We will become more purposeful and intentional about how we go about our daily lives. Hugs will mean more. Brunches with girlfriends will be life-altering. Spending time in the garden won’t be a pain, it will be a desire. Spending time with family will bring joy, not exhaustion. And we will realize that we were all in this together, the whole entire time. ✌🏻 #LongestPostEver

My aunt did the sweetest thing today! She bought multiple boxes of Dunkin Donuts and drove around Cincinnati delivering them to all the family. She stayed in her car while we chatted from six feet. It was the sweetest mid-quarantine pick me up! Pfeiffer was so happy to get a pink donut when she woke from her nap! @mo18jo #pfeifferbenirose
