robinmay Confession time: We move in nine days and I'm just starting to pack. Like, today. Like, this second. Our three-storey house... Nine days. But--deep breath--this is all just a little less stressful because our awesome moving company's got our back. Seriously. We first used @upackmoving from California to North Carolina, then again to get my life's worth of stuff from Toronto to our new home / soon-to-be-old home. We were so happy with both experiences that it was a no-brainer to work with them on this next cross-country trek. Did I mention this is our THIRD move in one year? Yeah. We need allllll the help we can get. So starting today, we are officially on our next journey: #NCtoWAwithUPACK It's going to go a little like this: North Carolina --> Virginia --> West Virginia --> Ohio --> Indiana --> Illinois --> Wisconsin --> Minnesota --> North Dakota --> Montana --> Idaho --> Washington (And then our hearts will explode.) 4d

robinmay As a Robin I feel as though birds should invite me into their club, wings spread wide with welcome. But mostly they just fly away. 4d

robinmay Making the hard decision to not visit Georgian Bay this year was....hard. I'm immersed in its images today for a project and the urge I sometimes feel to flee this new world is a sharp, shoving thing, right in that bit of us all that sometimes says, "Get up. Go. Now." Good thing my anchor is a shiny, patient one. xx. 5d

robinmay I have a tiny, wonderful mother. Above all things, she instilled in me a voracious love for reading, an identity twined with nature, and a rare sort of compassion--the kind that stings and guides and speaks its mind. The butting of our heads has sometimes defined our relationship. And there are some years in there I almost wish I could forget. (I was the WORST teenager.) But still...here we are. And I think it's all thanks to her. This Mother's Day, I'd like to thank my mom a little extra for being as excited about our move to Washington as we are. That she and my dad are already planning an extended visit makes it feel like home before we've even arrived. What a gift. Happy Mother's Day! xx. 2w

robinmay Marriage has funny physics. The hard bits can fling you apart and send you hurtling in a thousand pieces, way way waaaay into distant space. And the same hard bits can smush your hearts together, peanut-butter-and-jelly-style, into one mega beating mass of love and laughter and the most enduring-est solidarity. 2w
  •   _satisfymysoul_ Couldn't have said it better!2w
  •   adventures_in_mind As a relatively newly hitched pair, I'd love to hear more of your words on marriage, Robin. We got married 2 years ago this August and there have certainly been ups and downs. A lot of parenting insights on the IG community but could benefit from more honest talk about marriage. If that's something that resonates with you 2w
  •   cutie_pahtootie 🏽🏾 2w
  •   hyx_gloria love you and your words so much. though I haven't married even haven't met my mr right, i can feel the happiness you are sharing. Always thank you for giving us the courage to dream for a happy marriage! 2w
  •   blaineorific Very well put. 2w
  •   benneyrollex Hii 2w
  •   rorozee72 I pray and hope to find just 3% of that love,laughter and est solidarity that u have. May ü be blesses infinity and beyond. 2w

robinmay Walk-pause. Day-pause. There has been some miscommunication about our closing date and we're frozen, mid-step, while hearts and logistics carry on full-steam ahead. Mind if I just ARRRRGGHHHHH here for a sec? 2w

robinmay True story, y'all: Unless something awful happens (which it sometimes does) we start our next cross-country trek on May 29th. That's 365 days from the date we waved goodbye to our home in California. How crazy is that? How crazy is this life?? Gracie's sleepy eyes and blurry tail wag say it all. 3w
