Leap

A few days ago I wrote about my intention for 2017 and how it is going to be my year of letting go.  Within that post I described some of the reasons behind my choice of intention – the main one being winning a competition to attend a photography retreat in Colorado.  In the spirit of honesty…

Project Happy: Days 1031-1040

Welcome to the first installment of Project Happy in 2017! It’s felt like an odd period between Christmas and New Year and then the girls going back to school, with Lola’s birthday sandwiched in between.  A big part of me was dreading the return to normality, and January is probably my least favourite month of the year.  The…

Project Love: 52/52

It seemed fitting to end this year-long personal photography project with a photo of my little tribe.  I try and get a shot of everyone together each time Sophie comes to stay – usually at least once a month, though we’re hoping to see her more often in 2017. I took this one when she…

My Ten Photography Resolutions

I only realised, quite literally a couple of hours ago, that tomorrow is New Years Eve.  NEW YEARS EVE!  How did that happen?  Where has the last week gone? I’ve been thinking for a while now about various posts that are crammed into my brain at the moment, waiting to be written – reflecting on 2016, my intentions for…

Project Happy: Days 1021-1030

Christmas Week! A festive installment of #projecthappy today. I can’t quite believe that it’s already all over – it took me ages to feel even a little bit Christmassy (not until the evening of Christmas Eve if I’m honest) and now suddenly it’s been and gone and finished and we’re all already turning our thoughts…

Project Love: 51/52

Christmas Day. All of us together (just one missing – Sophie spends Christmas itself with her Mum and then comes to us for a mini-Christmas visit a few days later). Blurry because it’s a phone photo in terrible lighting but I really don’t care because this is us in all of our messy, quirky glory…

Project Happy: Days 1011-1020

‘Twas the week before Christmas and all through the house…children were struggling with end-of-term tiredness, Mummy was struggling with trying to get everything done and Daddy was struggling with stress at work. But despite all of this we’ve managed to have lots of fun and festive family time together, and that has made all the…

Project Love: 50/52

I took this yesterday after we got home from our visit to Santa.  My festive three posing for a photo even though they were hungry and really not in the mood.  I love them for that. I also love them for being completely and utterly unique and feisty and wilful and high-spirited and silly and…

Project Love: 49/52

Another late post (see my previous Project Happy post for the reason why!), but I figured it was better late than never. We had Sophie at the weekend as part of the final celebrations for Ella’s week-long birthday.  We put up the Christmas decorations, wrote Christmas cards, went out for dinner, made chocolate orange brownies…
