So yesterday I spoke about keeping hold of memories by taking a photo of them. So every day (for the next week) I'm going to add a new memory to my collection. I guess it's my version of Dumbledore's pensieve (now on another quick note if you haven't listened to the Harry Potter audio books by Stephen Fry - DO IT. It's beyond mesmerising - it's now our soundtrack for EVERY journey in the car! The answer is always an unanimous YES to 'do we want a bit of Harry!!) But back to the point...
So I think often we make the mistake of only documenting those big events - the, what we call, 'important' events. Don't get me wrong, it's important to do that ( that is my job after all as a Wedding Photographer!!). But for me, it's just important to catch all those ordinary moments too. I'm guessing they're the moments I'm most likely to forget - but so desperately treasure.
And on that note... (btw - there won't be a long winded post every day - just going to update this one - with maybe a small amount of commentary!)
Ladies at Lunch - these 2 are 2 of my favourite people ever. We have been through a lot together over the last few of years. We've laughed, we've cried, we've danced together. We've leant on each other a lot - all equally. But mostly when we're together, we laugh - a LOT! They will be 2 of the hardest things I leave.
Completely mental they are!! (Go here for more swing set shenanigans)
Making the most of the weather without rain! ( if you want to see a WHOLE LOT of crazy trampolining - please make you way here!)
Boys and their toys! It was just meant to drop down gently - but the wind caught it and away it went!
Oh Baby Bear... Bear doesn't even try to go into Mr T's office while he's away - but the minute he's back she likes to take up every last milimetre of space under his desk - she doesn't have to try very hard!!
Good morning Makenzy!!
Although this next one isn't of my home/children - it's still a memory for me. Eventhough I was working, I had an amazing time at Dorothèe & Jeremy's wedding. They're a french couple who embraced quite a few English traditions, but kept hold of their own as well - there was a lot of kissing!! Although my French is more than limited - everyone made me feel incredibly welcome.
