8 Miles From Home. Not 80, Not 800.

But just 8 miles from our home in England, our car broke down and left us stranded. We talked a lot, and decided it was time to get a dog, move abroad, change our jobs and make movies about it… Read the whole story!

  • I’ve spent so many hours with this little one since bringing her into this world. I sometimes forget that each day she grows, bigger and smarter, she’s getting closer to a time when she’ll be off on her own adventures without me.
I know it’s a long way off. But just thinking about it helps me appreciate these days when she wants to be close to her mummy and daddy. To adventure with us, to watch a sunset and say, ‘wow beau-full’ in her sweet little baby voice.That’s what motivates us to carry on creating. We want to give her a broad and varied perspective of this world. We want her to be curious and content with little things. Just as we try to be.It’s true that there’s no instruction manual when you have kids. And each child is so unique. But each challenge has helped me become more confident as an adult. And I hope that Story can feel that too.
Let’s go see the world together #storyember , one lake at a time 😊

  • Today was a difficult day. Full of confusing discussions and anxious thoughts. We could feel the walls closing in on us.
So we did what we always do when things don’t feel right. We went outside. And the world healed us for those brief moments. Pastel pinks turned to firey orange as the sky painted its masterpiece for us to see. We soaked in the sunset and for that moment, it was all that mattered. All our our problems drifted away.Of course a simple sunset can’t fix everything but it helped us to be in a better headspace to tackle things with clearer focus. Tiny moments matter... #whpnaturallight #familyvloggers #youtubefamily #veganchild #veganmama #livevegan #healthyveganlife #toddlerlife #livinginportugal #livingabroad #travelwithatoddler #portugueselife #exploretheoutdoors #adventure_time #getoutsideandplay #createyourreality #makingmemoriestogether #healthymummy #mummyanddaughtertime #daddysgirl #youngfamily #marriedwithchildren #plantpoweredfamily #plantpoweredkids
  • I look like I’m about to burst into song in pic 1, swipe to pic 2 and my open jacket is making me look even shorter than usual! Move onto pic 3 and you’d be easily mistaken for thinking I was telling Story off for being naughty, but pic 4 brings back some normality with a pleasant memory of Phwa Phwa’s last day with us in colorful Porto. Our favourite Portuguese city.
It’s an odd collection of pics indeed but there’s something I love about each one of them so I couldn’t let them go to waste.

  • Taking Story to see the fish was one of the most rewarding experiences for us all. ‘Phwa Phwa’ treated us all to a day out at Lisboa Oceanário and it was the best thing we could’ve done on a rainy day.
We filmed it all for a vlog and Story watches it everyday, screaming with joy as she relives the moments over and over again.
Tivemos Boms Momentos!

  • We’ve had a fantastic few weeks exploring new parts of the world with this little beauty.Although the impact of 2 year old #storyember is starting to show now. She’s definitely figuring out how to have a strop when she doesn’t get her way.
So it has been good to have Phwa Phwa grandma Irma around for extra support!We have so many pictures and videos to work through from our adventures around Setúbal and Sesimbra in Portugal. But each new memory that we recorded will be treasured forever because we’ll never get these fleeting moments again.#familyvloggers #youtubefamily #veganchild #veganmama #livevegan #healthyveganlife #toddlerlife #livinginportugal #livingabroad #travelwithatoddler #portugueselife #exploretheoutdoors #adventure_time #getoutsideandplay #createyourreality #makingmemoriestogether #healthymummy #mummyanddaughtertime #daddysgirl #youngfamily #marriedwithchildren #plantpoweredfamily #plantpoweredkids #setubal #sesimbra #alohacafe @aloha_cafe_
  • What a place! I’ve been away from Portugal for a while but now our family is all back together and we just spent a week exploring Setúbal and the Arrábida area. It has been a little stormy but that has given us some really dramatic skies. From dark moody clouds to double rainbows and burning inferno sunsets. Not a bad welcome home.

  • We have so many adventures planned for you little one 😎
But you have to stop destroying my SUNGLASSES 🕶😑😵
I’m putting up this throwback ‘memorial’ image from when my glasses still lived.
Since Story was born she has murdered at least 4 pairs of mine and one of J’s. Now she’s older I think she’s doing it for pleasure 😂
I wonder what my next pair will look like 🤔
Side note though, no matter how hard she bounces in the ‘bouncy bag’ she still hasn’t managed to break our @philandteds escape carrier yet. That’s made of stronger stuff I think 🙏🏻 #RIPsunglasses #ineededyou #glasseskiller #philandteds #escapecarrier #penacova #hikingwithatoddler #2yearsold #makingmemoriestogether #wearallthebabies #walkingisgood

  • I was scrolling through my feed and realized how much our life has changed over the last 5 years. From living in Thailand with our old dog Eden and driving a 40+ ‘vintage’ car, to having a baby and moving to Portugal, turning Vegetarian to Full Vegan and starting a Jewelry business on Etsy plus so much more in between.
It’s fantastic to see my life laid out in a little photo grid form, it helps me keep track of my achievements with my husband.I have to admit, there are as many bad days as there are good when you choose a remote lifestyle like this, working from home in a world that hasn’t totally caught up yet with the new opportunities out there. And on those days it helps to have a reminder of the good moments and milestones we’ve fought for, for over a decade.I hope that Story keeps an open mind as she grows older and never stops learning. Never stops adapting and seeking a path that will bring her true happiness. Just as we have tried to do for ourselves 😊 👆🏻Links to everything we do in my bio

  • I can now see how much more we notice around us with little #storyember around. This toddlers eyes lock onto everything and make us stop in our tracks, slow down, and appreciate the world around us even more than we did before.
I’ve seen more leaves 🍁 twigs and mushrooms in the grass and puddles than ever before and I couldn’t have asked for a better child.
Thank you Story for enriching our lives and helping us to appreciate the beauty of this world .
