When I started blogging in December 2014 I loved taking candid photos of my children and since then it has become more then a hobby and something I not only love doing but sets my heart alight. The whole process taking the shots of my family and then later editing and looking over them. Its so special and I just love spending my time doing it.
The more photos I take and the more memories and moments I capture of our days and our life the more I want to keep on doing it. Although I’m not at all professional I hope you can see how much I love taking our photos.
This post is very picture heavy, we took so many photos on this day and so many I just loved and couldn’t leave out of my final selection for this blog post. Daniel took a lot of these too. He did a really good job especially as its not a hobby of his and he is just my wingman and is a very good at helping me out. He took some lovely photos of us.
Last year we visited the bluebells for a little clothing photoshoot for Sophia and Archie and two years ago we visited the bluebells at Chiddingstone Castle and that is when I fell in love with the beautiful little purple flowers that we have now visited three years in a row.
I love how they only come out at a certain time of the year and I love having to find a new and special spot to take the photos and squeeze in the time to visit. I found a beautiful place this year when we were on our way to Emmett’s garden, these beautiful bluebells were down a winding country road and the very next day, it was a Sunday (Dan had been working the Saturday) I took my little family back to this little spot especially. It was just beautiful all around this area there was just a sea of purple and I was in heaven. It was so beautiful.
I absolutely adore this photo of Sophia and Arthur. What a cute little pair they are.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to talk a little about our family at the moment. I feel like our life is full steam ahead at the moment. I can’t believe we are basically half way through the year already.
Just recently after having Arthur and with the lack of time and adjusting to the juggle of three and having a new baby in our family I found myself having less and less time for my blog. So much so that the last few weeks had me feeling a little down. I think it was a lot of things and I spoke a bit about it over on my Instagram account if you are friends with me there.
I love my blog and it’s the one place I feel safe to write and say what I want, were I can document snippets of our lives and share new and exciting things that we are doing without feeling self conscious. I feel most comfy when I am writing.
So I found a little chunk of time to come and write here, I’ve got quite a few draft posts to write edit and publish which I need to find the time to post. And I want to get back to being more consistent here but with consistency means I need to set aside time and I’m slowly finding it but sometimes the juggle is real. I have also been posting to my Youtube every Wednesday since January so expect a vlog from me weekly. That is my goal for this year to upload a vlog at least once a week. So I would love for you to go and make friends with me on there too.
The children are growing up so fast and it’s scary. I’m having all sorts of emotions about Archie starting school. Some days I think to myself this boy is so ready to start school and other days I find myself saddened by how much I will miss him. He is so excited and has no concern at all, he is very confident and headstrong. He takes each minute for what it is and never seems to get himself anxious or upset over much.
Arthur is getting so big and he is a whole five months old already. He adores all of us and his little smiles melt our hearts. He is such a good baby and I know I say it all the time but he has completed our family in such a beautiful way with his calming and gentle nature. I look forward to watching him grow and the moments when I cradle him in my arms and I get a moment to soak in his little body and wispy hair above his ears I could cry with joy.
I feel ever so lucky to have these three children and I know that will never change.
Daniel is working harder then ever, he has so much work on I feel like we are like passing ships in the night. But I try to remind myself that it all swings in roundabouts and it’s great for us that he has so much work on so I won’t complain. But it doesn’t stop me from missing him and I long for him to be home with me and the kids.
My dream would be to have him home more he is such an amazing father and is such a good role model for our children. I do feel like I need to pinch myself some days.
When I get back from swimming lessons with the kids on a Wednesday, dinner is on the table the whole house cleaned radio on with some chilled tunes. Everything is under control and calm. He takes the stress off me and helps with everything to do with our life and our children. He makes it feel like a team effort and never do I feel unappreciated by him. Those small things to me are such big things and they mean so much to me and our life as a family. They are the most important moments, because this is what I need most, his support in our everyday life.
I say it often but I got so lucky meeting Daniel. He is such a hands on dad and brings happiness and humour to every situation which I just love about him. To have him home more would be amazing and would be a dream I hope that someday soon our life allows and we can achieve, for us to have more time together as a couple and as a family.
We have been speaking about our future seriously over the last few months and what we want. A big thing that came up for us is more time. More time together all of us. So hopefully life leads us on a path towards that.
We celebrated my niece’s birthday this weekend just gone and it was so lovely. I cant believe she is five years old now. Her and Archie are just 6 months apart. It was also lovely to have Daniel with us. He has been working weekends for the last 6 weeks now and we have really missed him.
I hope you all have a lovely week with your families and let’s keep our fingers crossed for more good weather.
I hope you enjoyed all the bluebell pictures. I urge you to find some bluebells and capture you kids in them, it is so much fun. But you’ll have to wait for next year May as their season is over. And I am sure like every year it will be here in the blink of an eye.
