You know family sessions are my favorite, no matter where I am. This family has meant so much to us during our stay in Rwanda and it was a joy to capture them! February, 2020.

AM I OLD!! ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Some chuckles include 🙈. 1. Wrinkles. Make us look haggard...men looks distinguished 👍
2. Grey hairs. I pluck those little minx out. I know, I know, they’ll grow back worse.
3. Baby making. I am 35 soon. The message of ‘your fertility is questionable’ is everywhere. Your eggs pack their bags and head out...lucky eggs 😂but even ‘if’ you do fall pregnant (and please note this comes with an ‘if’ because every Tom, Dick and Harry wants you to know, that you’re getting to ‘that’ age), you will be in an ‘older’ category for every appointment. Oh how jolly. *cue total stress out.
4. Stomach issues. THE WORST NEWS...I think I need to cut down on my chocolate consumption. The utter horror. My stomach is objecting. Again, the horror! It didn’t object to anything at 16. Perhaps too many years eating like a hog
5. Music. The moment when the ‘Rewind’ radio stations play music from your generation and you remember that when you were a teenager they used to play music from the 80s and you used to eye roll and think ‘this is so old’. By the by, I now think 80s music rocks...again, age.
Or, when your mum would say, ‘this isn’t a new song. It’s one from when I was growing up and they’ve ruined it.’ Now, I say the same thing. 😳
Bonus..Metabolism..I’ll leave that one there.
So, getting to the point...when this pic was taken, I had dyed my hair to cover the greys, I put on wrinkle filler (it’s pretty much cement), I used a filter to make me look less pasty, I styled my hair, did my makeup, chose a snazzy outfit. But..I do enjoy those things. Yes, essentially I do want to preserve youth because I looked a whole lot healthier back then but I also consider all this as self care. It’s taking some time out to do the things that I enjoy, be creative and gives me a boost of confidence.
In a society where messages go from DON’T BE FAKE, BE AUTHENTIC. To HERE’S A NEW CREAM/PILL/SHOT TO HELP YOU LOOK YOUNGER - do what makes you happy and most importantly, whatever gives you a pep in your step, you totally beauties 😘 Confidence suits you. Who cares about about age Listen to the Rewind songs with pride!
Micah is living his best life on this mini holiday. I'm so glad we could come down for so long and spend this time with Nanny and Grandpa.
This is the coolest bike Micah got it for Christmas he had a smaller bike that he outgrew. He loves it set up as a trike and won't let me make it a balance bike yet even though his smaller one was set up as a balance bike.
Today we went to the park after the gym to try and burn some energy so Micah would nap before his ballet lesson. It was a success but it was so damn hot!
I'm really ready for summer to be over. I miss being able to be outside all day without ending up drenched in sweat.
It's only Monday and I'm already exhausted its going to be a long week.
