some days we’re just all over the map, yea know? 🤷♀️⠀
where do you want to live?👇 Or you all over the place too?!⠀
It’s quite a surreal experience when you see monks walking the streets holding their bowls. Knowing that these boys and men are totally dependent on the communities surrounding their temple to feed them. They have only two meals a day, every day. ***
One monk we met told us that, instead of placing food in his bowl and eating it piece by piece, he mixes it all together. Fruit, rice, curry, corn. He’s not attached to the concept that his food is #delicious He eats only to survive. The taste and feel of delectable food lasts but an instant.

A novice monk at Wat Sri So Da very early this morning. His eyes are averted because he’s not allowed to look me in the face. On the @urbanadventures Culture and Mindfulness Tour you can go up to this temple in the forest and watch as hundreds of monks take to the streets, knowing that the people of the community will provide their first meal of the day. They hold the silver bowls in front and walk in single file.
We bought a packed breakfast for 50baht ($2.40) and offered it, kneeling before the monks for a blessing. An extraordinary experience that I’ll never forget. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 #urbanadventures #hugthailand #sundaylife #thailand #culture #changmai #buddhism #blessed
"Children make your life important."
There is nothing that infuses my life with more purpose than being a mother. I love love love these girls more than I could possibly articulate. They are such brilliant and beautiful little humans, and they teach me just as much about being in the world as I teach them. I'm not perfect, life isn't perfect, but most days... being a mother feels pretty perfect. 💗
My new favorite toy....ice! 😍
This weekend has been crazy but good crazy!! Being in my community spreading awareness about foster care and adoption is my love language! We have a few fun opportunities coming up! If you are interested in getting involved, do not hesitate to reach out!!
Not sure why dad says he didn’t sleep well last night - I slept perfectly 😌
