Our kids are soon to be 3 and 5 years old. They travelled to Mallorca last year but other than that they haven’t seen much of the world. We truly believe that you learn by doing and that worldschooling is the way to go!

Yes i look like a mess in this photo! Heaven knows how tempted i am to edit how i look. I wanted to enhance my skin color, perhaps make myself look taller or make my hair look a little less dry but no. Seriously why would i even bother? Sometimes in life, we tend to put filters and put on a show to cover the truth. We acknowledge strength of others and compare them to our weaknesses. We always start our questions with, “why am i not...?” Don’t worry, you’re not alone. I am still learning to break this habit of comparing myself and my life to others. But i’m done lurking in the wings of all these “why’s!” It’s time to embrace imperfection and focus on our individual journeys. You have enough and you are enough! Agree?✨

~ The great Aussie roadtrip ~ It's something we had dreamed of doing for a long time. Crossing the country from west to east, 1200kms across the Nullarbor, some of Australia's most isolated and remote country! And we just did it! An epic feat for an old Kombi, even more so carrying this huge sign on the roof!
For those of you who have been following our route, we decided to high tail it through the south-west region over to South Australia. We've had limited service for a while, and since it was one heck of an experience, we'll get to sharing some more of that with you soon! ✌️

We spent last week in the Bahamas in celebration of our 25th anniversary with all of our children, despite the age range and the various busy schedules, which always makes my heart happy. I can hardly believe 25 years have passed since we stood on a beach together under a double rainbow, with little Larry a tiny peanut in my belly, and said our vows. I’ve been in love with the same person since I was 14. I’ve spent more of my life as Patti Schmidt than I have as Patti Avery. From the time I met him I was all in. He had me at hello. He is the wind beneath my wings. All the cliches! I think the secret to marriage is loving someone at their worst as much as you love them at their best… really meaning it when you say “for better or for worse.” I’ve been at my worst lately more often than I’d like to admit, yet there he is without fail, arms open. Have I ever mentioned that he’s also the best father in the world? Like everyone else we’ve had ups and downs, joys and pains, gains and losses, highlights and heartaches, yet I would do it all again ten times with him by my side. 📷 @patschmidt

soooo.... thought you guys should know: WE’RE HAVING A BABY! crazy, i know. we’ve got a lot to figure out now, but we’re excited. for those of you who have been following along for a while, you know how crazy this is! i said no no no for yearsss. for those of you who are newer friends, well, i started ohdeardrea when i was pregnant with marlowe as a single mom. alex had recently moved to new york and wasn’t part of the pregnancy or around much the first 1-2 years. this is thankfully far from the situation now. he’s been the best ever to have by my side this time around. a new stomping ground for both of us for sure. and plus also, after being sick from a life threatening illness for the past 2.5 years (illness sucks, guys), well, we weren’t sure this was even an option for us anymore. but here we are... with a bean in my belly. basically all our friends and family have been in complete shock and have asked, “was this planned? or a surprise?” the answer is neither hahaha. i babbled about this, our current situation, guatemala stuff, and so many more mind grapes on the blog if you care to read :) our life is a crazy adventure for sure, but we’re grateful to be here and doing this together :) cheers to making plans, shifting, and shifting again. because #life ☀️

JAMAICA- We made it to the Dunn River Falls. It’s a tiered fall that many people climb ... it’s totally stunning but it’s also very touristy. The falls meet with the ocean and that’s where more people start the climb. We also visited Bob Marley’s house and his grave. It was a nauseating drive through a mountain road but the kids slept and the views were stunning. We are just about to pull up to the Grand Cayman.. hopefully it’s a nice day so we can hang out on the beach. It was sooo rainy in Jamaica... Question for you today... I love using a scratch map... Do you think I can scratch these places, if I’ve been for the day? I’m 50/50 about it... 💜⛴🌎 @msccruisesofficial .... hosted
