"The quieter you become, the more you can hear." - Baba Ram Das

So it's been really quiet around here the last week, sorry about that! We had a really bad time with sleepless nights, the worst since LC was quite a bit younger and it ended with myself and the Little Miss being I'll, don't let her angelic, sweet, innocent look in these pictures fool you, she is a demon when it comes to sleep and being settled in her bed!

Anyway this lead to me being behind in most things and my poor old blog being a bit neglected, I was feeling a bit guilty about this and all the other things I couldn't achieve until I stopped, stilled myself for a minute and took a look around and realised that actually, the world wasn't ending and wasn't it nice for a change to just relax, have some down time. I was stressing a little but my wise OH encouraged me to just enjoy doing nothing, enjoy being quiet and so I did, and it open my eyes up to so much more. I would definitely encourage others too do the same, if life gets a little busy or tiring just slow down, enjoying being quiet and see what you can see!

“Others inspire us, information feeds us, practice improves our performance, but we need quiet time to figure things out, to emerge with new discoveries, to unearth original answers.”
― Ester Buchholz


  1. Beautiful quote!

    I hope you're feeling better now and all caught up on your sleep.

  2. What a lovely blog Karen. LC is very cute :-) Great quote. Very important to have time to reflect; life can be very hectic.
