The last few weeks have been rather hectic. But in a good way. I was overwhelmed to see the outpouring of comfort and encouragement I received when I opened up about feeling low and needing support a couple of weeks ago. I might not have family close by, but I certainly have blogging friends online, who’ve got my back should I need it.
Sometimes you make friendships in the most unusual of circumstances. Check out the blog of This is Me Julie. I feel like I know her better than some people who’ve been in my life since childhood all from chatting on facebook late at night about life, love, heartbreak and everything in between. It’s lovely you can still come across someone and click straightaway, even as adults. We can learn so much from children and how they obviously embrace each other without judgement. The world needs more openness and love right now.
I’ve loved attending the Christmas in July events (where brands and PRs promote the Christmas collections to bloggers and journalists). Here are a few snaps of some of my favourite discoveries. More will be featured over the coming months.
Gorgeous decorations from John Lewis
Beautiful artificial flowers from Wyld Home
Perfect PJs for Christmas morning from Lala & Bea
Super practical water bottles from Infruition
Nativity set from always fabulous The Great Little Trading Co.
I’ve also been fortunate enough to work on some great opportunities and network with some interesting people recently. Watch this space especially if you are a blogger looking to enhance your skills. My life as a pro is starting to take shape. I’m also working on setting up a little photography business to compliment the blog. Here are a couple of examples of my recent work. Will share more when it’s properly up and running.
As for Caspian he is as energetic and happy as always. He’s a bit of a wild one, our boy, and loves to run and climb. This resulted in a bloody nose the other day in the garden, but luckily it’s healed up very fast. His blonde curls and big blue eyes get him lots of attention. He’s a right little flirt, though still suffering from a bit of separation anxiety and clings to mummy and daddy until he feels comfortable with others. He’s thriving at nursery and has started to say the odd word. Though often we have to guess whether is English or Danish he’s speaking. Ball seems to be his favourite closely followed by Bu (short for bus), and might even have knocked Daddy off the number one spot (but only when it comes to vocabulary!).
We are throwing him a (very) belated 1st birthday party, on the day he turns 18 months. I’ll share more from the day on here and I’m very excited to be working with Sass & Belle on decorations and the lovely people from The Hummingbird Bakery on his cake.
