Lola: Nine

The new year always begins in the most positive of ways for us as we celebrate our youngest girl’s birthday at the start of January.  I can’t think of a better way to bring colour and joy to the greyest of months.  This year, she turned nine years old.  Nine years of my little ray…

The Happy Jar 2018

We begin January 1st every year with an empty glass jar and a stack of brightly coloured scraps of paper.  They’re placed on the kitchen side together, easily accessible for all, and throughout the weeks and months that follow, whenever someone thinks of something that they’ve felt happy about (or proud of, or excited about)…

Life in 52: {2018}

Anyone who meets me for the first time quickly recognises just how important photography is to me.  My camera is very rarely out of my hands – it’s pretty much an extension of me and I take it almost everywhere I go.  I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember, though the…

Little Loves: November 2018

Gosh it’s the end of November already.  This month has felt both long and short simultaneously.  I’m not normally a fan of November – it’s a bit of an in between month full of dark, damp, cold weather and I tend to just keep my head down and get on with things.  This year we…

Your Heart Knows The Way

I’ve been feeling a little bit lost recently.  Maybe even a lot lost. Up until recently, we hadn’t been on an adventure for weeks – the girls have been pretty much refusing to leave the house (other than to go to school of course) and whole weekends were being spent either stuck indoors or simply…
