Voice | The Sling Diaries

Cocooned in warmth and promise, your sanctuary is filtered with softened resonance and silent adoration
The hum of life bustles by, mere centimetres from your cosy nest, yet you know only a world of hushed tranquillity

Willowy limbs flow with effortless grace from the very depths of my being, as you, our tiny dancer, awakens
With instinctive elegance you begin your hauntingly beautiful rehearsal in preparation for your home coming

Gently imbuing your essence, my solitary heartbeat becomes the rhythm of your soul
A glowing ember, composing the most soothing of melodies, lulling your tiny spirit to rest

My whispers echo to you in the still of the night; soft words and hands encircling your haven
Telling of a love already so profound... so fierce

A love so true, yet far beyond comprehension

For you, my unborn

Simon and I are truly thrilled to announce we have another precious, little bundle on the way   x

Sage - always trusting your Daddy's playfulness
This week, the cherub-lips and doe-eyes of this angelic girl captured my heart over at New Zealand-based blog Big Little. If only we could all look this sweet while on the hunt for nature's goodies!

The Catch-Up

As the months pass us by in a flurry, with truly undeniable haste, we are so very aware of how fleeting your moments of "baby" have become - only to be replaced by a little girl with a firm grasp on the world of toddler-hood. Each day is filled with new joys and challenges as we navigate the ever-changing waters of your hilarity and charm... and your head-strong spiritedness! but, my darling, we wouldn't want it any other way.



Here are your adventures as a 15 month old...



as a 16 month old...


and as a 17 month old...

Sage - throwing your first snowball at the top of Mount Wellington - one mitten on, one mitten off!

This week I popped by to visit the beautiful Sisilia at her aptly named space, Hello Sisilia. Her stylish little people, Oliver and Zoe, had me longing for bare limbs and warmer days.

The Cottage

It's ours!

If you follow Fields of Sage over on facebook or instagram, lately you may have noticed a little sneak peek of our new home - a home that from the very first walk-through, we were so hoping to call our own.

Although it is with heavy hearts that we farewell our first house -- a home that has welcomed the excited faces of a young couple, fresh from their honeymoon, a home that has witnessed the arrival of their sweet little babe from hospital, five days new, a home that has groaned through many, many hours of endless, tiresome hard work, a home that has created everlasting, cherished memories bursting with love, laughter and of course a few tears -- we are so excited to make this sweet little cottage our new nest in just a few, short weeks.

Until then, come and take a wander through... I'll pop the kettle on  :-)

Sage -  forever foraging and fossicking, a walk is not complete without a treasure in hand
This week I visited new-to-me blog, Jane Mabel and was utterly inspired by Brandy's ethereal, black and white images of her darling three. This is one space I'll definitely be exploring during quiet, night time moments...

Joy | The Sling Diaries

My dearest Si,

As you swept our newborn up into your arms and cradled her with such strength and tenderness, I knew that I was no longer the only girl who would find comfort in your embrace.

As your joyous, tear-filled eyes washed over her tiny body, soaking in every facet of her being, I knew that I was no longer the only girl who you would know, better than she knows herself.

As you stood and marvelled at her beauty, her cleverness and her bravery, I knew that I was no longer the only girl who would fill your world with unwavering, blossoming pride.

Si, each day, as I bare witness to your growing love story with our girl - a story that shines and strengthens with each rising sun - my heart glows with the knowing that you are mine....

And now, also hers

No longer am I the only girl who will carry your heart through this lifetime.
