    This is the story of a rescued Bahamian raccoon called Pumpkin and her friends, Royal Bahamian Potcake rescues Toffee and Oreo.

    This man right here is pretty special. He didn’t flinch when I told him about two pups that we needed to go back for that I had seen on the side of the road in bad shape, and didn’t put up a fight when a little raccoon came along in need of some love and attention. Now he is the hero of our two little girls and doesn’t complain that he’s the only man in the house, or argue when the toddler wants to paint his toes. Today can be hard for some so I am sending you extra love and hugs. Whoever you are closest to today give them a squeeze. Peace and Love, Team Pumps xox #fathersday #dad #love

    Just a raccoon and a dog having a cuddle. Because no matter our differences we aren’t so different after all. #love

    🐶”Toffee remember what the beach was like?” 🐶”Is that where the sand is?” *Pre-Lockdown fun*  I will not lie to you, I have never given much thought to Earth Day. Besides being made to make papier-mâché globes in school it hasn’t dawned on me to acknowledge the day. Of course like everyone over the past few years, I have become  concerned about the state of the world and climate change but I think we can all agree that the start of 2020 Mother Earth has decided to hold her breath and wait to see what we do with the mess we have made. The entire world is at its knees. This isn’t a scenario where a major natural disaster has occurred and the world watches and sympathises and then moves on when another headline takes hold, the entire world is hurting together. We can’t look away. So as we wait for Mother Earth to exhale let’s just remember that we are all in this together. Earth Day won’t ever be the same for me again. #earth #earthday #bahamasstrong #bahamas

    On January 7th at 8.35am my second daughter was born. I felt an instant wave of relief and a calming peace. I was no longer pregnant, no longer sick, and feeling such a heaviness both physically and emotionally. This tiny little baby girl had made me feel complete and had filled something in my soul I didn’t know I needed. I felt such an urgency to protect her and soak up every ounce of her as she will be my last baby. Over the past few days I have been looking at her apologising for bringing her into this world at such an intense time. That her short little time on earth has been overcome with this madness. But then I started thinking. Maybe the world after all of this is over will be a better one, maybe the air will be clearer, the oceans and skies less congested. Perhaps we will all be kinder to one another, more patient. That when she looks out our windows she wont worry about rising seas and one day the idea that the planet was dying is so far forgotten. Yesterday we finally buried our darling Pumpkin, we planted an avocado tree, along with her ashes, that grew from the seed of the last avocado she ate before she passed away. One day my girls will get to enjoy the avocados and they will hear stories about how her crazy parents rescued and housed an abandoned raccoon. And the tree will grow and thrive because the world will have learnt a valuable lesson from this time in our history. We came into this together and we will get through this together. I look at her now and want so badly to feel that calming sense of peace that I felt when she was born, and just like that... she smiles.
