2018: My Year Of…

We are halfway through January already and, as ever, I’m not really sure where the weeks have gone.  They seem to have passed by in a bit of a fog of flu (the husband, Ella and Lola this time – Mimi had it over Christmas and thoughtfully shared it with them.  I’m still germ-free thank…

2017: My Year in Numbers

Back in December I read this post by Suzanne from Inside, Outside and Beyond and I loved the idea – something about it just piqued my curiosity and I started wondering about what my year would look like in numbers. I sat down to write and quickly realised that I was really going to have…

Little Loves: December 2017

Little Loves: October 2017

This month’s Little Loves post was always going to be all about our family trip to Florida.  It feels strange to be writing that when I remember that September’s post was written whilst I was in Denver, Colorado for Leap Retreat.  Considering we haven’t been abroad for four years, to have been able to say yes to two incredible adventures in…
