This month, we’ve been exploring the theme of open.  Whether wild and open spaces of nature or of our heart, it’s been a fun theme to consider. Where can we take our children and ourselves to experience the freedom and fun of open spaces?  How can we change perspectives or rise above expectations in order to remain open to what life and our children offer?


We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure.
There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

We hope you’ve enjoyed exploring this theme with us.  Have a little more fun for the next few days and tag your images #open #makingsofmotherhood …we’ll find you in our Instagram community pool!  Please follow us @makingsofmotherhood to stay abreast of future themes (August’s theme is coming soon!) as well as to be notified of new posts published in this space.  Wishing you feelings of openness as we close this month and prepare to move into the next.


From us to you, here and now…
