Johanna (left): This week I am reflecting on my feelings about being up here in the Yukon. Maybe it's that we have come up to our one month here or maybe it's because I have been talking to my friends and family back in Ontario, but I think I'm feeling a bit homesick right now. Sometimes I catch myself and it hits me...I am really really far from home. I know that this is all normal, but right now my trip back to Ottawa in December feels like a really long time away.
Desiree (right): I really enjoy my morning routine. It's not always exactly the same, but it usually consists of slowly waking & nursing Gretchen in bed, then we move downstairs & I put the kettle on. I'll start to make oatmeal while Gretchen snuggles on the couch with some toys or a book, and sometimes I'll put on an episode of a favourite show to watch while we nurse together a little more & enjoy some morning cuddles. Then the water will boil and I'll make tea, the oatmeal will be ready and we'll share a bowl together, with a tiny sprinkle of brown sugar and a splash of almond milk. I like our mornings to be peaceful and quiet, slow and warm. There's nothing less appealing than rushing around in the morning & so we take our time.
