robinmay Today felt a decade long in the best way possible. I cried happy tears. I rode a boat and a monorail and a runaway mine cart, careening down the track while fireworks exploded overhead. Tomorrow we head home, sleepy and more than a little dazed. But my dreams for the longest time will be sprinkled with pixie dust. Guaranteed. xx. 11h
  •   robinmay @provhandmade So magical. 10h
  •   robinbisiofilms The haunted house Always scared me!! I think I only went once!! And I think it broke down while we were inside for almost an hour! So it lived up to its reputation. Woes be gone at Disneyland for sure! 10h
  •   robinmay @robinbisiofilms Aw.. It *is* pretty spooky. I'm surprised it didn't traumatize me as a kid. I actually found it much more frightening this time around...so of course we had to ride it again :) 10h
  •   robinbisiofilms Yah for doubles! Matterhorn hands in the air and the cars you could drive yourself as a youngun! I loved Epcot too and was surprised when I went to Disneyworld how cool it was and in a realm of its own. I felt a bit like a traitor! 10h
  •   robinbisiofilms It was amaZing to have parents who loved Disneyland as much as their kids! Xo 10h
  •   stohr12 Aww! Sounds great! 6h
  •   blueeggsandtea So happy for you ♡ i can almost imagine the joy and the release after the longer months feeling a bit lost. I have the same happy tears when I'm released for a few glorious days from the 'new home anxieties' ;) Hopefully this will feed you with enough energy and drive to go back reinvigorated and write a tonne! xx 6h
  •   susedavis Did you go on Expedition Everest ride by any chance? Scared me!!! @robinmay 3h

robinmay Yesterday. Such an odd, beautiful day. While Matt waited out a roller coaster ride, I made half a dozen new friends in line, in the dark. It's so heartening how the bond of nervousness transcends age and language. Being bravely solo always pushes me beyond myself. Later--giddy with the relief of being back on solid ground--I oohed and ahhed my way down nearly empty, faux streets. Hollywood. San Francisco. New York. The sky's flat pastel gradient made us feel like we were tucked beneath a dome. And for a sweet, surreal moment, I considered we might be trapped there forever. 1d

robinmay Good morning, sweet friends! This Valentine’s season, I’m teaming up with @Hallmark to encourage not just y’all to #PutYourHeartToPaper, but me too. ️ As most of you know, for the first year of our relationship, the love of my life was 2,500 miles away. We Skyped, we texted, we talked on the phone, but the conversations that are still with us today—literally, tucked lovingly away in the drawer of my favorite writing desk—are the ones we put to paper. Today @matthewjay and I get to live happily under the same roof, but now our friends and family are the ones who are far, far away... So for the next two weeks I’m challenging myself to once again put my heart to paper and reach out with hand-written, intentional love. Wanna join me? More soon! xo. 2d

robinmay Today's funny-in-retrospect nightmare? A verrrrry full bladder + a broken down Test Track. I may have said the words, "Should I just go right here??" while tugging frantically at my locked seat belt. And then--hallelujah!--the ride started up again. How's your day? 4d

robinmay Haircut part 2 (almost done!) + the warmest, sunniest winter day. For all my "I miss snow!" grumblings, I've got to admit that weather like this is heartbreakingly sweet. It's like an invitation to come out and play, then to pause in a sunbeam and let it burrow into your skin, alllllll the way to your soul. Is it possible to be half snowman and half sunflower? 1w

robinmay Mid-haircut and she's starting to climb into my arms for protection. Cute, yes, but also terribly ineffective seeing as how I'm the one wielding the clippers. (How do you say, "This will ALL be worth it when you're galloping free and unencumbered on a white sand beach next week!" in dog?) 1w

robinmay The view from my birthday. I'm not sure I ever quite got my footing this past year. I learned that "wandering" and "relocating" are two very different things, and that one takes significantly more precious energy than the other (and is much slower to give it back). I've learned lessons in love and patience, and been rewarded for both a trillion times over. And while I'm as grateful as ever for the days I've counted as I am for the ones I've yet to meet, I've also felt occasionally (overwhelmingly) scared and discouraged and lonely and stuck and all the things that find us wherever we may go. Life, right? Such beauty in the messiness and vice-maddeningly-versa. Just gotta keep remembering to blow out those candles and live the heck out of it all. xx. 2w

robinmay I'm restless in all areas of my life, all the time. I don't remember a time when I wasn't. For years I fought this itchy mind of mine, accusing it of ungratefulness. I condemned my twitching attention span and spoke cruelly to my wondering heart. I demanded emotional stillness and I was angry when I responded with rebellion. Then one day--really, that's all it takes--I let it all go. I loosened my grip. I relaxed my judgement. I looked myself in the eye and said, for the first time ever, hello. And together we've wandered ever since. Now I know that stillness finds me when I write, that words are where I expand effortlessly to fill whatever space of time I carve out for myself. But I had to arrive at this realization somehow. And commanding myself to stay put was never going to be the answer. Find your own way, friends. xx. 2w

robinmay Sleep's a little slippery tonight, friends. And my dreams are stuck in trees that are too tall to climb... Funny how the sleepier I am, the more my mind likes to fizz and pop. I read somewhere that's a "female thing," but I've always just thought of it as a "Robin thing." In the middle of the dark night there's little sense of camaraderie, sisterly or otherwise. There's really just me and my fizzing and popping, and if I'm lucky a really good book. 3w

robinmay Before we met @matthewjay, I almost always walked Gracie off-leash. Now, thanks to him and his abundance of big-hearted caution, Gracie's probably a whole lot safer in this big, sometimes scary world AND she gets to rock this snazzy lime green harness/hot pink turtleneck combo. Thanks for snapping us in our element, my love. And for always taking the very best care of us. xx. 3w

robinmay Today is inching its way below freezing and my spirit says THANK YOU! Climate's definitely been one of my marriage's most careful compromises. While I respect my husband's Wisconsin-bred aversion to the snow (albeit occasionally more grudgingly than I'm proud to admit), two consecutive non-winters have not been easy for me. Anyone who's been with me on Instagram since I lived in Canada knows that my heart cracks wide open on blizzardy days, and the stuff that pours out is truly my purest self. The fact that @matthewjay was initially drawn to me during one such season is no surprise. Of course that doesn't mean I enjoy Toronto's six soggy months of grey skies, grey slush, and grey moods any more than anyone else. And March has lonnnnng been my least favourite month. But without an occasional snow cleanse I find myself a bit bogged down in my own spiritual grime. How about you? 3w
  •   gcbstone I wanted to love the winters in Chicago so badly, but being an Arizona native, it's just wasn't meant to be. I do love a crisp, autumn day, though. There's nothing better than the smell of the air, the brilliant display of colors, and leaves crunching under your feet. :) 3w
  •   sgoralnick @robinmay yeah. Plastic shrink wrap and fleece blankets on top of that. Gotta do it this weekend 3w
  •   emmazissou I need the seasons for my wellbeeing. I need the spring for building strength, the summer for bliss and endlessness, the autum to appreciate all colours and what I am capable of and winter for resting and proofing I am strong enough. 3w
  •   brrathbun I think there is something about a few snows in winter (as opposed to a full white-out for months) that make them even more precious and even more magical than the already miraculous phenomena of soft, cool whiteness taking over a usually colorful world. 3w
  •   anamariapopescu I'm having -20 degrees Celsius here in Romania and I can't say I like it. I always long for the summer and the sun. 3w
  •   tanyiatabouli I do so love the changing of the seasons. Being from Vancouver though, I find from about Jan. 5 to the end of February my most difficult months. So drab and dreary but for the odd snowdrop or crocus. We also don't get the good snow except up on the mountains so if I can go for a few snow shoe hikes to pass jan and feb. that usually gets me through till spring. 3w
  •   goldenolivia Winter's so nice that put it in twice. 3w
  •   yordinbox like it so much 2d
