Day 18 of #gettoknowmechallengemay2018 hosted by @ds.spiritual.journey This is my family... my Mum is there too with my sister Debbo and I... my son who wasn’t at the airport is in the next two pics and the last one is my Mum’s partner of 40 years with Blue...what do I hope never changes? That we are always there for each other no matter what... we may at times be separated by thousands of miles... by opinion... by age... by all the ego crap in life... but I hope the real stuff, the strong bond, the real love we have always had between us is never ever broken...❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #ilovemyfamily #familybonds #divinationchallenge
It’s no longer May for #gettoknowmechallengemay2018 but I still really want to do this so: The question and concept of names has always been interesting for me. My family never had nicknames for me but I’ve always been told I look like an Elizabeth or a Charlotte. I’ve felt more akin to my middle name, Shaun than my given name: Caitlin. In middle and high school my friends called me Kay, short for Kay-Kay. I’ve always loved more earthy names but never felt at home with anything. So would I contemplate changing it? Maybe one day. To what? Who knows!!!
Day 16 of #gettoknowmechallengemay2018 hosted by @ds.spiritual.journey What quirks do you have? Quirks... me?!!! I am a quirk... I love black pepper on everything... I have marmite, marmalade and peanut butter on toast (with black pepper!) all together... I am totally obsessed with taking photos... have been all my life... I fold paper into boats, hats, whatever... important forms, prescriptions, boarding passes... can’t stop it lol... I like feeling folds of fabric between my fingers... I eat coal... not as much as I used to but during my pregnancies I craved it and ate loads... my hair has to be long... I feel awkward in smart clothes... I love winter and the cold and do not like summer... blue skies depress me, but I love grey gloomy cold skies... I call my car the Mothership... it is old and battered but wouldn’t swap it... blah de blah #divinationchallenge
Day 31 of #gettoknowmechallengemay2018 | tell a story about you. I feel that my IG feed tells many stories about me and that is why I have chosen to share parts of my life with you all. Yes I do love tarot, spiritual and witchy things but there's much more to me than that.
Day 30 of #gettoknowmechallengemay2018 | what's your favourite smell? - I love the smell of vanilla and often have a vanilla scented candle burning in the house. I also love jasmine and the smell of the ocean
Day 29 of #gettoknowmechallengemay2018 (apologies for the slight spam that is coming up but I'm determined to complete all my May challenges) | what inspires you to do better? My children. I try and always do better in everything in life for them
Day 30 & 31 of the #gettoknowmechallengemay2018
My favorite smell is a toss between patchouli and lavender.
A story about myself. The reason why I'm writing this today and not two days ago is because I had to think hard about a story I was willing to share.
I was maybe 7 or 8 years old. My father was military and we were in Lahr, Germany. We lived our summers at a campground in a trailer. My parents marriage was turbulent to say the least. My father always woke up early and would sometimes take a swim in the lake before going to work. One morning I was awake and he brought me with him. I remember sitting in the water and watching him swim. I wasn't a good enough swimmer to go as far as he did, so I sat and watched him. I thought my dad was the best swimmer ever and how lucky i was to spend that morning with him. I was such at peace in that moment that I still remember it 40 years later. My parents divorced when I was 10 and then I only saw my father a month a year until i was 14. But I still hold on to that awesome morning.
Day 31 #gettoknowmechallengemay2018 .
Tell a story about yourself.
This is a story about my boots...😄I have a country girl heart but I've spent most of my adulthood racing around city life. When I first moved to Montana I felt so free! It is small town living with gorgeous nature all around-Although it felt so wrong and against my citylife vibes I desperately wanted a pair of cowboy boots. To me, these boots represented freedom of a living a country life. My husband took me to The Boot Barn to buy me a pair of cowboy boots. As soon as I put them on I was in love!!
Yep, these are now my power boots!

#gettoknowmechallengemay2018 DAY 31: Story about me
When I was a baby, my dad would often have to take me on nature walks to help me get to sleep. He’d carry me through our property and to the roses and let me touch them and look at them. Once a flower baby always a flower baby ✨💕#aventurineforest
Day 31 of #gettoknowmechallengemay2018 by @ds.spiritual.journey “Tell a story about you.”
Once upon a time when I was in 5th grade, I was “boyfriend & girlfriend” with a boy in my class and we were the best of friends for over a year. We’ll call him Jake for all intents and purposes. He was always nice to me until he became friends with another boy in our class, who we’ll call Ted. They started doing everything together and started excluding me. Jake started being mean to me and started insulting me with insults that he had picked up from his new best friend Ted that you could tell he picked up from his father because they were quite “adultish” and misogynistic in nature. One day our class had to do a group project with three people in each group. You can guess what group I was in. Every suggestion I had was ridiculed, everything I said was mocked. “Can you believe her? Geez, Women!” On and on. Then Jake pulled out a pocket knife to show to Ted. “Check it out! It’s my dad’s!” “Wow!” I said “can I see it?” He pulled away and laughed “No! Girls can’t mess with pocket knives! You’d probably just cut yourself!” By then, I had HAD it! I left their little circle and went up to my teacher and told him that Jake had a pocket knife out in class. He was suspended for a week and apparently he had taken the pocket knife from his father without his knowledge so he got in a huge amount of trouble at home too. 🤣
Day 30/31 of the #gettoknowmechallengemay2018 hosted by the fantastic @ds.spiritual.journey
What is your favourite smell? Jasmine and rose. Reminds my of balmy nights in Morroco and Egypt. "Lush" snowfairy shower gel, reminds me of Christmas
Tell me a story about you?
I believe in Angels, not in a Christian way. I am pagan in my beliefs. I read a book called "Celtic Angels" by Donald McKinney and it changed how I felt about angels. It took away that Christian association. The book explained that the ancient Celts, had angels and believed in them. This blew my mind and I started getting interested in them.
Since then, I have connect with them and they have made a difference to my life. Amazing things have happened. I see them as light beings, who are our friends. Messengers of the Goddess. One of my favourite angelic interventions was, I was wanting a little scruffy terrier dog. I asked the angels to help. I forgot about this and within a couple of days, out of the blue and totally unexpected, I received a phone call. A little puppy had been discovered in a huge waste bin, in a cardboard box, just dumped, it was like she fell out of the sky?Did I want her? Yes! She was you guessed it a little scruffy terrier. I have many stories like this of how Angels have brought magic to my life. I follow an earth based path, but I incorporate angels into my life too. Angelic blessings and have a lovely evening ❤💟 Thank you @ds.spiritual.journey
For such fun and laughter during this month's challenge. I have enjoyed it very much. Thank you for creating it. Thank you for being part of the tribe ❤💟
#gettoknowmechallengemay2018 @ds.spiritual.journey #oracleofechoes #anatourian #totallyrandomdraw day 31 - tell a story about yourself...so, when my first marriage ended, I should have been relieved. I stayed long after I was unhappy in the relationship, there was dishonesty and infidelity...you think you 'd be relieved...but I wasn't. I didn't remember who I was, I lost all my connection to the people around me and it was a kind of death. The one thing that held me together was my children. I knew I had to keep them safe, give them the best start possible...so I had to heal myself - quickly. I remembered that my dream occupation was art...so I went back to school and started over. My art classes gave me purpose and connection again. I kept going and eventually earned a degree from the Colorado Art Institute...it was life changing.
#gettoknowmechallengemay2018 DAY 30: FAVORITE SCENT(S)
Greenhouse smell on a cool summer morning (bonus if there’s basil in it)
Fresh produce of all sorts EXCEPT bell peppers (fucking gross. Keep that shit away from me and my food)
Freshly baked snickerdoodles
And so much more ✨💕 #aventurineforest

Day 29 of the Get To Know Me Challenge by Andreia @ds.spiritual.journey
The holy trinity : Me, myself and I ❤️😉
I know, if you don't know me it might sound extremely cocky or you would think I am very self-assured. Truth be told, that's not me. I struggled hard to answer this question in the most authentic way possible. A lot of the things I went through, I did them on my own. I had to be my own motivator. I'm not in any way forgetting or diminishing the support my family has always given me. But the things we do, we do them on our own. I say "we"... yes, that's me, myself and I. 😉
You see, I am inspired by the vision I have of the new life I want for myself and my family.
💛Make it a Great day my Friend 💛
Day 29 of #gettoknowmechallengemay2018 by @ds.spiritual.journey “Who inspires you to do better?”
My husband has helped me to be a better person. I admire his confidence and his incredible sense of calm. I used to be such a hot head and I would fly off the handle and get upset over anything and this man has calmed me so much it has changed my life. He has such an amazing personality that draws people to him and watching the effect he has on animals is simply beautiful. He is such a gentle and inspiring man and I am so lucky to have him in my life.❤️

What irrational fears do you have?
Flying, I hate it. Every sound the engines make, I am a nervous wreck. You know those people that clap at the end of the flight, that's me. I am so relieved it's over, I am clapping my heart out. I get into a right pickle, before and during a flight. Before I recount the next part to you. I would just like you to know, I am a fairly respectable person, I am not one of those, beer swilling Brit types, wearing union Jack t shirt's, that are running riot on European beaches, during the Summer. That is not my style, but, when it comes to flying all hell has broken loose, with disastrous results. I used to drink before and through a flight, it calmed my flying anxiety down. Some of the disasters include singing to a packed plane, thankfully they joined in? Holding up a flight on the tarmac, I was lost in the bar. Walking past customs in Egypt, without showing my passport. Thankfully security had a sense of humour? Followed me, and actually helped me with my bags, that was after pinching me bum though? Lots of flying shenanigans, which is awful and I am not proud of. I should add, with what small amount of respectability I have left on here, I have changed my ways. I no longer go onto flights a drunken mess, ten sheets to the wind. I now meditate before a flight and take calming herbs. It's a lot better. I still feel nervous. ( Sorry Nico, I can't be a flight attendant on your aeroplane @evolution_of_a_soul )
Name three things you love?
Living by the sea
Travel : see above
Who inspires you to do better?
Me, hence why I am no good at it.
Day 29 if the #gettoknowmechallengemay2018 by @ds.spiritual.journey
Who inspires you to do better? My children. I'm so proud of what they have become and who they are. The trials that we have been through in the last years and how they have come out better people. They inspire me to be a better me. My husband who allows me to grow and loves me regardless.

Name 3 things you love
I have 21 roses in my front yard. Overkill? I don't think so.
3 favorites are: 'Audrey Hepburn', 'Christopher Marlowe', & 'Crown Princess Margareta'.
❤ Victorian, Art Nouveau, Edwardian, & Art Deco rings make my heart sing.
And I'll admit that I kinda have a thing for 1950s wedding ring sets too.
❤ Scandinavian folk art
Day 27 of the #gettoknowmechallengemay2018 hosted by @ds.spiritual.journey
What irrational fear do I have?
Several, probably, but the fear of asking for help apparently wins this contest. I've never really analyzed it, but part of it is probably proving my resilience and competency, and a large part of it is that I'm an introvert. It's too much pressure & takes too much energy to deal with another person. Just the thought of having to explain things, answer questions, and engage in small talk is a hell of a lot more overwhelming than doing something on my own.
