A year of family portraits – December 2015
I feel I have been a failure with my blogging. Life has been extremely hectic, like for a lot of people obviously. I’ve just felt that when i’m trying to juggle too many ‘eggs in one basket’ I end up failing then feeling even more rubbish that i’ve not managed to keep up with all the things I want to do in this blogging world along with living my every day life and keeping up with that too, but we have the memories that fill our hearts and thats all that counts. This year has been such a crazy one in more ways than one, the biggest factor being that we’re expecting our fourth bundle of joy in April 2016. This is something so exciting but equally making me wonder where the rest of my brain cells will disappear to with all the extra busy moments, ha.
This months portraits are different to what I had planned as I love to do a themed type photo depending on whats going on, but these are far from the festive looking ones we did last December but in more ways this months are such special ones to me. It was such a relaxing morning a few days ago after the Christmas buzz where we went to a local park in the country, the only ones there, being silly with each other and just really enjoying ourselves. I look at these photos with such pride & amazement.
This is our little family,
that we created.
Elements of each other filtering into one another.
Blossoming through growth.
learning new paths.
But mostly going through life, together.
amongst days of happiness, days of challenges,
I feel my heart beating harder & harder with sheer love for these souls.
We made this tribe, and for that I am eternally grateful.
We’re really looking forward to starting a fresh new year as our little unit, except for the new change of becoming a family of six in a few months time which sounds completely bizarre to me still.
I want to welcome the new year with open arms, a clear head and fresh mind. There’s so many things I want to try differently this year but thats for another post maybe. For now, i’m just super thankful for these people right here, including some family members and a couple friends including new ones who really inspire me and stand by me, who have shown me that they are for real when being part of my life.
For now, I’ll wish you a Happy New Year and here’s to an awesome 2016 & beyond!
