Well today was the day, I feel like we were lucky and had an extra week of “summer break” and a fabulous end to summer holidays with a wicked hot weekend! Lucky for us we got to spend it with a whole lot of family at our family cottage swimming in the water and relaxing on the sand! I love our little impromptu “shoots” they seem to truly capture them, right down to their clothes, the way they stand or sit. Of course with a little direction from mommy 😉 This is what I truly love about lifestyle photography – capturing them, in the now and everything beautiful around! The miss and I decided to go for a walk down the beach, the lil man came down and met us, completely impromptu, not perfect, but the perfect moment with two of the best kids I know.
Now that we’re back into our school routine – the first thing I did tonight when I got home (and the afternoon at work) was load up the diffuser with my On Guard Essential Oil Protective Blend! This blend gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling – yes even when its 30 C outside! When used in a diffuser it is excellent at cleansing the air – a must especially for fall and winter! This also protects against environmental threats and can also be very calming and relaxing. With kids back in school we all know how fast germs can travel – especially on their little hands! Add the On Guard Protective Blend to fractionated coconut oil or even water for a natural hand cleanser! Add the blend to some water and vinegar for a very effective all purpose cleaner! Our family has only been using water, vinegar and oils for cleaners for almost a year now and they’ve even stood up to raw chicken and have passed the test!~
Here is our little’s on their first day back… the nerves were already on edge. Mommy reassuring them that its OK – even I was nervous for back to school, or other days for that matter. The sun may not have been shining, but we were blessed with another warm day.
I hope all of your little’s had a great day back! I was so excited to hear about their first day, who their teachers are, all the other exciting things that happened. Looking forward to a successful school year for them (and us!) :).
