One year is like 10 in #expat years. So we take all the many (many!) lessons we learned last year and bring them into year one, year 6, and year 8. Let’s do this thing. . . . #expatlife #travel #travelingkids #kidswhotravel #traveler #adventure #livethelifeyoulove #wanderlust

Final long paddleboard of the season. Saying goodbye the USA today. I’m so grateful to all the amazing people who made this summer so special. Too many to tag. Six weeks seemed too long in May and way too short now. There’s so much we will miss. This whole expat experience has been about travel and expanding ourselves, but it’s also been about what grounds us, makes us feel whole, and feels like home. Dew covered mornings. Mist on the lake. Lobster rolls. Drives ins. Tiny bookstores stuffed with used books. Drag queen karaoke. Fried whole belly clams. The spray of the Atlantic on rocky beaches. Lighthouses. New England. I’d choose you every day and 10 times on Sunday. So sad to leave. But so full of love and memories that will surely last us the next year. ⠀⠀ . . . . #newengland #travel #expatlife #traveler #paddleboard #yoga #yogi #leavingonajetplane #traveling #yogamom #yogini

It’s my favourite time of summer. Camp is over. Family is back together. We are in our favourite place to be as a family. But I also know what’s looming later this week. Soaking in these last few days of fun in the sun in America. . . . #expatlife #lakelife #campmom #momlife #yogini #yoga #travel #moosepond #maine #maineiac #loveyourlife #familytravel #travelwithkids

It’s been about a year since we’ve had alone time together. Turns out we really needed it. So grateful for this week alone in our favourite spot on Earth. It’s our 12th stay at this inn and it never gets old. . . . #nofilter #beach #beachlife #beachvibes #saltlife #saltescape #sunshine #travel #sunshinetherapy #vitaminsea #capecod #provincetown #ptown #marriage #yoga #love #traveler #expatlife

My parents had wanderlust. I grew up traveling and watching them embark on destinations near and far. My father has been to very nearly every country in the world. So if you ever wonder if #wanderlust is genetic or if traveling with your family is worth it, look no further than these two. My mom and dad. Machu Picchu, 1983. I remember dying to get there myself. And I did. 30 years later. As we get ready to head back to England and to a travel schedule that is already making my head spin, I’m reminding myself of the “why.” I want to give my kids the world. This is the Brown family version of that. Thanks to @lindsaymeck and @msb86 for the photos. . . . #yogamemoirs #yogini #travel #traveler #familytravel #wander #seetheworld #worldtraveler #macchupicchu #momsanddaughters #griefmemoir #namastethehardway

It’s been a summer of rediscovering “home.” Of barefoot climbing on rocky beaches and lobster rolls and hot, 8 mile runs and ticks and gazebos and paddleboards and mosquitoes. At first, six weeks in the US seemed insane. Now it seems too short. “I’m American!” Adara shouts at whoever will listen. She counts American flags and works hard to remember what it was like to live here even though she’s now lived nearly a quarter of her little life elsewhere. “What are bagels?” She asked me the second day she arrived in the us as we ate breakfast. She remembers now. . . . #expatlife #travel #kidswhotravel #familytravel #traveler #maine #mainecoast #ustravel #yogamom #family #traveler #wanderers #wanderlust #home #newengland

This precious baby is 11 today. Hard to believe. Even harder to believe he’s at camp so I can’t say it. He’s the Tabasco to our chilli. The ketchup to our fries. The dressing to our salad. Hilarious commentary and deep thoughts are my fave. Miss you baby boy. Can’t wait to birthday hug you. 11. Where does the time go? . . . #birthday #momlife #kidsofinstagram #funnyboy #lakelife #expatlife #campmom #mom #momsofinstagram

Officially started training for the @windsorhalfmarathon today. Nine weeks out. Seems fitting that the training for my first marathon in 7 years should start in the place where I’ve always done all my marathon training. 7 miles!!! . . . #marathontraining #runner #runningyogi #yogamom #yoga #lakelife #runner #travel #expatlife

I did camp drop off totally alone this year. I’d been dreading it. Somehow it seemed impossible. And yet. Here I am. Five hours of driving. All trunks, drawers, bedding and boots tucked away. All beds made. This move has changed so many things that were once easy. And I’ll always speak out when I manage something I’m proud of.

Last haircut before camp. America is: porch haircuts, lobster, 102 degrees, marching bands, art fairs, library sales, and flags everywhere. New England, ftw. I’m going to miss this kid so much after camp drop off today. . . . #travelling #expatlife #americansabroad #lakelife #smalltown #bridgtonmaine #maineiac #newengland #yogi #yoga #travel

JOY. I tend to focus on the negative. 20 people could tell me they love me, but I’ll almost always believe — and focus on — the one person who doesn’t. My goal this year is to stop that shite. No one is universally liked. You can’t live a big and beautiful life without earning some haters. I know that it’s usually their problem and not mine. That envy and insecurity cloud many things. But I’ve also tended to believe the bad things at the expense of the good. On some level I believe the people who don’t like me are smarter than the ones who do. But this year, I’m done with all that. I want more joy. Want to focus on the people who get me and see me and love me for who I am. Imperfect. Flawed. Sometimes failing at being exactly what I hope. But also: Loyal AF. Enthusiastic. Encouraging. Loving. Fun. Silly. For my new year, my plan is to judge less. To accept that not all people will get me. To understand that I don’t have to fight for the attention of those who aren’t for me. And finally, to really accept that the people who love me fiercely and always have my back might actually be the ones who matter more. News flash: they’ve always mattered more. . . . #findmorejoy #screwhaters #hatersgonnahate #yogamemoir #yogini #happybirthday #yoga #momlife

If you have to get older, may I suggest you do so in a beautiful place, surrounded by people you love. May I suggest a 90 minute massage, a lobster roll, cupcakes, and greetings that make your heart sing. May I suggest long runs and paddle boards and children who sing happy birthday first thing in the morning. I don’t love aging. I do love my life. I’ll take it all. . . . #happybirthdaytome #loveyourlife #lakelife #maineiac #lake #summer #birthdaygirl #expatlife #travelling #love

HOME. What a weird and wonderful combination of familiar and foreign these last few days have been. The realisation that I can now get all the things I’ve missed: Mexican food. Benzoyl peroxide. Sephora. Target. Good kombucha has come along with seeing so many friends we’ve missed so much. But also its foreign now. I can’t pay at the pump because I don’t have a US zip code. Things that were once normal (oh hai air conditioning and American flags everywhere) now seem bizarre and unnecessary. I’m glad we get this interlude to our time abroad. I’m also glad we get to go back. Mixed emotions. This whole experience is full of them. . . . . #expatlife #home #livingmybestlife #travel #america #travelinamerica #maine #lakelife #thewaylifeshouldbe
