2020 has been simultaneously fast and slow. I can't believe it's almost June already. And I can't believe it's only June. But then again, that's how I've felt every day since I met P-O, albeit in an awesome romantic way rather than the 2020s crisis snowball way. It's like we've known each other our whole lives. And we can't quite believe we lived most of it without each other. Can you retroactively know someone growing up? Because we know each other so well it kind of feels like we did grow up together. What's weird (and awesome ) is how similar/complementary we are in disposition and point of view, despite having lived very different lives in very different parts of the world. ( #hesmyswedishtwin ) As we like to say, neither of us are perfect, but we are perfect for each other. These are my random ramblings at 2am amidst a blustery thunderstorm (it's approaching winter here in Oz ). Jag älskar dig, Per-Oskar. Du är världens bästa man. Happy seven months and more. . #stormyweatherthoughts #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage #whilehewassleepingiwasinstagramming #stillcantpronounce7inswedish #wouldntmindquarantiningwithyouforever

I’ve had a weird week, emotionally. Some stuff happened this week which made me worry and it sent me into a spiral of anxiety. Feeling insecure one minute, feeling nothing the next. I’m so grateful for this time at home with my amazing husband who teaches me everyday to become stronger. I have also taken some time this week to learn to silence my inner critic and come up with positive affirmations. Woken up this morning thankful for another beautiful day, thankful I am sat in my bed, next to the love of my life @tuttiserra in our safe house, quietly having some time to myself to read, have a cup of tea, listen to the birds and feel our baby moving around and feeling blessed that I am growing life. I feel comforted sharing this as I know I’m not alone. (P.S. reading @fearnecotton book ‘Quiet’ read it if you want perspective on the way we self doubt/self sabotage etc it’s👌🏼and has helped me immensely ) . . . #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage #thankful #bethankfuleveryday #lifelessons #pregnant #isolationlife #quarantinelife

Happy 6th birthday @maisonburlesque !! 🍾🍾🍾. Thank you for providing a friggin wonderful space for so many different performers, artists and dancers to get involved in the Australian burlesque community. . The inspirational teachers, continually varying classes, extraordinarly fun showcases and pretty bloody great group of ever growing students is a huge part of why I love Melbourne. I would never have found the guts or had the opportunity to rediscover performing without your studio. Cheers to you!! 🥂♥️ Xx #maisonburlesque #birthdaylove #melbourneburlesque #dance #mushpost #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage

You really think I’d be doing anything else on the anniversary of my crotchety life? It’s been a fabulous year. The only scary thing I’ve come to realize today is that I’ve been climbing on these turd biscuit blocs at the woods for 14 years now 😅 #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage #bouldering #getoutside #staysoft #lincolnwoods candid by my buddy ole pal @taguiar697

Just over a decade ago, this group of friends became one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I don't do this sort of thing on social media very often--and some of the kids may not be stoked about the cheesy old photos of us (I'm sorry! I promise I won't tag anyone in them )--but being adopted into this group of lifelong friends changed my entire life. And I don't think I have told them that nearly enough. . Thank you for always having a place for me (and Suki ) in your homes, at your tables, weddings, bbqs, birthdays, school plays, shopping trips, jam nights, housewarmings, Christmases, camping trips, Strathcona Park trips, group hiking adventures, beach fires, holiday parties and get-togethers. Thank you for reconnecting me to the man who became my partner in life, sharing your lives with us and tirelessly supporting me in all of my goals. . And thank you, most of all, for becoming my family when mine had moved away and I needed one the most. You all have been the best big brothers and sisters (and nieces and nephews ) I could have ever asked for. ❤ . . 📸 credits: Joe, Davies, Jackie, Jenn, Alorha, Megs, Seth, Ry, Maddie, Liz, Jess and myself (and probably more ) . . . #homefortheholidays #myotherfamily #islanders #framily #iloveyouguys #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage #chosenfamily #appreciationpost #vanisletribe #islandtrip #tashatravelshome #vancouverisland #westcoastbestcoast

We Brits (or whatever I can call myself ) don't have Thanksgiving. Though the holiday is problematic (👀 you know who you are ), it's a nice idea to stop and be thankful for a minute. So I'm gonna hijack it for myself today. ⁣ ⁣ Here's what I'm thankful for this year:⁣ ⁣ - the surprises (more than this girl could possibly have imagined or hoped for herself )⁣ - the new friends (you've got me deep in the feels )⁣ - the old friends (your love I am forever in debt to )⁣ - British Airways (for allowing me to run away so often )⁣ - the dogs (for allowing me to pet you whenever I have met you )⁣ - my skin (for surviving the worst burn in years and not showing my true age )⁣ - the utter incompetence of Brexiteers (may you fail on and on )⁣ - the answer always being somewhere in the middle (I'll fight a corner but know the compromise )⁣ - all the stories I can't tell ⁣ - you⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #Thanksgiving #HappyTurkeyDay#ReasonsToBeThankful #ILikeMakingLists #GettingSentimentalInMyOldAge

Where do the years go. My gorgeous boy is jetting off to New Zealand today to see his lovely Erin . And whilst I know he faces danger everyday at work it bothers me he is going to be so far away. #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage 💙

... and before you know it, they're grown.⁣ ⁣ I spent the last of my holidays creating a sign for my son's room, inspired by a photo I snapped on vacation. He's 12 now, but looked so much smaller in the picture. ⁣ ⁣ It made me wish I could keep him that way for just a bit longer. ❤⁣ ⁣ #lasercutting #lasercutwood #woodsign #theygrowupsofast #timeflies #madeitforme #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage

9 months in VS 9 months out..... 18 months of learning, wonder and questionable hair. 18 months since I ended my love affair with peanut butter and started a new one with Maltesers. 18 months of clothes that don't fit properly, baby brain and time going too quickly yet not quickly enough. 18 months of....Motherhood. #thebiggestlessonilleverlearn #bumpie #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage #motherhood #learningcurve #lifechanger #meandmyminime #mylittlesidekick #oreliamay #wouldntchangeathing #stillme #somethingextra #9monthsin9monthsout #mumma #mumlife #firsttimemum #somethingsdontchange #trialanderror #itstartsfromthewomb #sparklyangeforever #anewversionofmyself #addedextra

in the midst of all this buzz around mary poppins returns, let's not forget my forever favourite julie andrews classic (and my personal favourite movie of all time ) and this photo of a christmas that never actually happens in the film 😍🍃🎵🏔 #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage #ihavefivecopiesofthismovieinmyclosetalone #iwatchedwhitechristmastwicetoday #soitwastimeforsomethingelse

After a quick stop to say hi and drink bubbs with friend Scott at V Wine Cellars, we went home to steam 12lbs of Alaskan colossal king crab legs from Napa friend’s @great_alaska_seafood (overnight delivery included, this AK crab was the best I’ve ever had ). Thought this would be a good app to help enhance the Thanksgiving meal at friends Joey & Jeff’s. Joey put on a spread which he had been carefully prepping all week. Hands down, he made the best creamed spinach, homemade biscuits & turkey gravy I’ve ever had. And the kids (and Stan ) made us all pilgrim hats, including one for Stella 🐶. Thank you Joey & Jeff for an epic meal and evening filled with laughter & giving thanks for all that we have, especially great friendships. . . #longestposttodate #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage #happythanksgiving #yountville #napavalley #winecountry

"Leap" into the weekend! c.2013 for @sbuzelli . . As an only child, I started drawing to pass time. As an immigrant kid who moved around a lot, the only reliable friends were the imaginary ones I invented on paper. Now as an adult and a professional artist, I no longer draw to keep myself company, but it's still nice to see my old friends reappearing in my works, they remind me of why I pursued drawing in the first place. This little red fox is one of them. . . #memorylane #leap #fox #trees #illustration #victongai #moody #weekend #drawing #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage

This is everything! My best friends - my ride or dies. This is TRULY family. Decades of laughter, tears of joy and sadness. These are my all time women crushes. I am blessed to be loved by these three. Looking forward to many more decades with you bitches 😜 #LifetimeFriends #GettingSentimentalInmyOldAge . “Don’t chase people... be you.

Feeling my age this weekend, esp coming off the usual 4hrs sleep a night over the weekend! But squeezed in a power nap this afternoon n even an hour on the heavy bag! So despite the exhaustion feeling good, had productive few days and things are starting to line up nicely! Plus having four days off next week is always nice to look forward too ; ) #gettingitdone #doshityoulove #comingtogether #workthings #growth #cutoutthedrama #begrateful #behelpful #bekind #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage #loveacliché #knowisoundlikeanobbutidontcare

My view walking out of my kitchen. My first thought "Dang, I just cleaned a few hours ago." But then I felt a rush of happiness. Yes my house is dirty but what this doesn't show was the dinner my whole family sat together to enjoy, and the laughter that echoed as they made that mess. With the older boys growing up those times are few and far between. #savoreachmoment #boymom #dontjudgemymess #wearemakingmemorieshere #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage #familyfirst #themesscanwait

This one picture could make us look like a perfect family. 10 minutes after this all hell broke loose. Those pictures never make it to social media (I don't take those picture because I'm too busy trying to defuse the situation, or completely loosing it 🤷‍♀️ ) Christmas to me is about family and traditions, putting the tree up when it was just my mother and I growing up is one of my favourite childhood memories. We were poor (really poor ) it was just us and she was probably a bit lonely. No matter what Christmas was filled with fun, love and laughter. Every year i remember the work and effort my mum went in to make Christmas special. Don't get caught up on the gift Mums,dads, grandparents etc because when you look back on your Christmas's as a child I bet you can't remember every single gift you got, but the people you spent it with who made it special stick with you for life #christmastree #memoriesforlife #mumoffour #looksperfect #wearentperfect #merrychristmas #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage

Because of you, I laugh a little harder, Cry a little less, And smile a lot more. . . Thank you for posting your wedding album so I could shamelessly steal this picture. Can't believe this was three months ago already, and I'm still so honoured to have stood beside you as you married your soulmate. . . Also happy to have a somewhat normal picture of us so we can point to it in the future when people say "for gods sake, do you ever take a normal picture?" #bestmaids #bestfriend #bestfriends #wedding #samjam17 #samjam2017 #becummingmaguire #areyouguyssisters #archeo #toronto #cleanupgood #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage #13yearsandcounting #distillerydistrict #dancethenightaway #soawkward

My mother has been the one constant in my life since the day I was born. She taught me the power of a song; how to be strong even at my weakest; to never give up and to always see the best in everyone; and most importantly, she raised me to love the Lord. Without her I wouldn't be here, let alone be who I am today. The word "thankful" just doesn't seem adequate ... but Thank you to my Ama for all she's done. 💙 Tomorrow we celebrate my birthday. Life has reminded us that these days are not something to dread or take for granted, but a blessing that not everyone gets to enjoy. I am surrounded by amazing family, both by blood and by choice, along with incredible friends, a great job, and an obnoxious cat that I adore. Over the last 29 years, I have loved, I have lost, I have lived. And the exciting part is I'm just getting started. 💟 #gettingsentimentalinmyoldage #fourgenerations #lovemyAma #birthdayeve #not30yet #turning29 #blessed #thankful #GodisGood

I remember each and every single one of my 50 days in America and that's not just because this is an incredibly beautiful country. It's these tagged folks. And my uncle and aunt who aren't on Instagram. Also Josh, our tow truck driver who wants to visit Samoa and the gentleman at White Sands who urged us to go up Mount Sandia. And everyone we met along the way.
