Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 201-210

Gosh, what a whirlwind week!  I’m so tired that my brain is almost too frazzled to put together any kind of cohesive words about my joyful moments from the last ten days.  There have been lots, I know that.  It’s been busy and stressful and sad and happy and scary and exhilarating, sometimes all in…

Photoshoot #5: Kate and Jamie

This time last year I had a moment of bravery and decided to offer five free family photoshoots to friends so that I could build up a portfolio of work and prove to myself that I might actually be able to turn my passion for photography into a viable career. The first three happened in…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 191-200

I’m well over half way through this fourth year of Project Happy and it still surprises me that I’ve kept going for so long.  It’s second nature to me now and I can’t imagine not having it as a part of my life.  This week has felt better – we’re back in our familiar routine and…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 151-160

We are officially halfway through the summer holidays and I have to say I’m thoroughly enjoying being able to spend some proper quality time with my girls.  We’ve had some lovely slow days together – just pottering around at home, reading, and popping into town to run a few errands.  I’ve been managing to get a…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 141-150

Well, that’s Week One of the six week break done and dusted already.  It’s felt quite laid back as we’ve had lots of downtime at home in between the bursts of busy-ness and activity, and, even though I normally find it tough staying in, it’s actually been really lovely (if you choose to ignore the bickering…
