Oh the joy of social media friendships! 💙☀️ Another Insta friendship blossoming IRL & now on the water.... ☀️🤙 This week Frit @fritstartingat30 was in the North and we met up on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal for some paddleboarding, picnic & planning! 💛
We originally met on Insta, then at @waexpo - the Women’s Adventure Expo - back in October. 💚
Then chats over tea at @kendalmountainfestival in November when I was fortunate enough to speak about Everyday Adventures with @findraclothing & then this week on the canal in Yorkshire. 😊☀️ A beautifully sunny day pootling on the water, carrying our boards round the lock & chatting to passers by about the joy of paddleboarding! 💛
If you swipe you can also see a video of a family of tiny ducklings that came past! So beautiful! 🦆 🐥 Listen to the birdsong too!
Then a nice Yorkshire picnic on the grass.... 🍽🥗 Frit made me smile as she said I was “properly mothering” with nice plates & cutlery! 💚 No single use plastic obviously! 🐳
There is such a joy making friends of different generations & sharing lots of ideas & plans. 24 years apart yet so much to talk about. So much so, we didn’t get a proper picture together! Next time @fritstartingat30 😊
Have you met friendships online & then IRL? I’d love to know! Have a wonderful weekend! What are your plans? Jo xx 💚

#hygge ~ The cosy feeling you get while you’re enjoying the good things in life with friends 💙 we’ve had this feeling for the past 3 weeks having @chadprice100 travel with us and crossing paths with @rosie_bum_cheeks@matteuer in Vietnam 🇻🇳 It’s been sooo nice to have a bit of home with us on our journey. I can only hope more people take the opportunity to visit us and the random places you wouldn’t normally go on holiday! 🙏🏼
Há muito tempo deixamos de nos importar com a visão dos outros sobre nós. Ninguém vive a nossa vida ou seguram as nossas mochilas pesada enquanto caminhamos, só quem tem o direito de nos julgar está lá em cima! Éhhh, ninguém vai viver por nós, nossas pernas doem quando o trajeto tem pedras, mas quando superamos, temos uma perspectiva nova - um mundo nosso - onde o nosso passo é do tamanho da nossa coragem. E só!! #friendslove#amigasatéoinfinito#blessed#god#thebestfriends#happy#bff#womanpower 🌷♌ 🦁💕 👭
they say you should surround yourself with people that motivate you, that help you be your best self, those that believe in you more than you believe in yourself, those that are happy for your achievements and are cheering you on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have been so blessed to be surrounded by that, from my parents, my sisters, my friends, the #buzzingcreatives community 💛
