When I was pregnant with Alice, we were in complete denial of how much our lives would actually change. We kind of thought it would stay the same, but we would have a baby too... how wrong we were. Life was turned upside down and we slowly began to realise that it would never be as it once was again. And it was hard. Really hard. There were times when we thought we wouldn't stay together, times when we both just wanted to run away and hide from all this new, scary responsibility and times when we were just so happy and thankful for everything. 

Slowly, over time, those moments of happiness and thankfulness grew and outweighed the bad times. And then we had Thomas. And suddenly, our family felt more complete. We totally embraced the chaos that came with having a new born and a toddler instead of fighting it all. Getting up in the night was easier, we were both a lot calmer with the children, and life has just all fallen into place. 

Parenting is a journey. And what I have learned is that, a family is not just created by giving birth. It's something that builds, and grows and has to be nurtured and embraced. And it's seriously the best feeling in the world. But it doesn't just... appear like that. 

If I could go back in time, to before I had Alice I would tell myself to prepare properly. To relax, to stop trying to hang onto the past and to live more in the moment. Because it all passes so quickly and that's the worst thing about having children. To feel like time is just... slipping through your fingers forever. 

What advice would you give yourself if you could go back in time?! xx

The Weekend

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

The weekend was so hot! So we had to get out both days. I didn't actually take many photos, but I couldn't help myself when I saw all that long grass and Alice twirling around in her beautiful dress! They didn't quite turn out as I had hoped, but I do love them. She looks so beautiful.

We went to a National Trust park in Esher which was amazing. There were geese everywhere and Alice loved chasing them about. I on the other hand, was blooming terrified of the little things. They were horrid and kept yelling at us!! Anyway. We managed to get away from them by trekking up a huge hill which almost killed us, but I think you'll agree the view was incredible and worth the sweaty foreheads! It looks like a painting!

We went to Bournemouth for a couple of days last week with the kids. We were so lucky with the weather, it was amazing! I was massively excited by the amount of beautiful beach huts along the shore line, so excuse the million pictures ;) 

The kids were in their element, playing with (eating) the sand, getting ice-creams, running along the pier. It was so lovely to see them both so happy, and they both slept the whole night through even if the hotel was a little noisy at night! I always remember my family trips to the beach with great happiness, and I hope my children feel the same when they look back. At least I have enough pictures to prove it, ah :) xx


The Weekend

We visited Crystal Palace park over the weekend. it was amazing! I had no idea it had dinosaurs, bouncy castles and miles of scooter perfect paths! Alice loves dinosaurs at the moment, she's just obsessed so she was in her element. The weather was perfect, the park was beautiful and everyone was just so happy. Sometimes, everything just goes right! You know?

Here are some pictures from our day:
