Caitie and Soda at Home

One.

Sometimes, when absolutely nothing feels right, something comes along to show you that it's actually been right all along. And that something was crawling into our bed in our beautiful Dimpsey Shepherds Hut in the beautiful Blackdown Hills this weekend. After an evening of sitting and talking - part of which was spent in the most spectacular wood-fired hot tub [...]

On never belonging

By | August 1st, 2019|Caitie and Soda at Home, Featured on Polaroid 2, Lifestyle, Uncategorized|

Dear Friends, It's been a while, I know. I feel like I've been trying for so long to put pen to paper but the words never came. And then suddenly, they did. I hope you'll forgive me the winding and rambling nature of this post and more than anything I hope it will resonate with someone who needs it right [...]

It Hurts Because It Matters

Having a baby and becoming a mother can be a very lonely journey. Writing that sounds equally obvious and totally impossible, as, from the moment you conceive, you never know 'alone' again. It's fair to say that little Miss Maddie is my little shadow, and one that I wouldn't change for the world. Although people tell you how tiring being [...]

Six Years of Soda

'Falling in love with you is the second best thing in the world. Finding you was the first' - Unknown My dearest Soda, I can't quite believe that it's your birthday! How quickly a year has come and gone. It seems unbelievable that this time last year we had just found out that our family would be growing. You're six [...]

Why it’s okay to fall down and lose your spark

By | May 10th, 2018|Blog, Caitie and Soda at Home, When Caitie met Soda Family|

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? And I’ve wanted to publish a new post for so long. But, truthfully, I’ve been struggling with words.  Christmas was such a whirlwind that I think I ran out of steam. And then this morning I realised that life doesn’t ever slow down, does it? It keeps going, and our problems change and our [...]

A Letter to my Best Friend

By | February 15th, 2018|Caitie and Soda at Home, Soda's Birthday, When Caitie met Soda Family|

To my best friend, my soulmate. Dear Soda, Today is your fifth birthday, my boy. Can you believe that? I definitely can't. I don't suppose as a dog you spend a lot of time dwelling on your age. But you haven't said no to the extra birthday treats, so I'm guessing you know it's your birthday... (#crazydoglady...) It feels like just [...]

A place to come home to

By | February 5th, 2018|Blog, Caitie and Soda at Home, Caitie Loves, Lifestyle, Living Creatively, When Caitie met Soda Family|

The keys to the place that When Caitie met Soda now calls home. Thank you so much, Louise @TheJanuaryRose Have you ever felt lost? I mean totally, profoundly lost. Like the world has stopped looking the way that it used to; like all of the things you knew about yourself and your place in it have changed so dramatically [...]

You must do things you think you cannot do

By | October 31st, 2017|Blog, Caitie and Soda at Home, When Caitie met Soda Family|

Do you ever have moments where you are truly lost for words? When you look at what's right in front of you, and feel the biggest of emotions, right in your chest, and can't, for the life of you, find the words to express them? I've sat here, in front of this computer screen for the last hour, trying to [...]
