I’m so excited to be joining in with The Me & Mine Project for another year. I first starting taking these monthly portraits in November 2015 which honestly only feels like last week! In 2016 we managed to capture a family photo every month bar February! This year I am determined not to miss a single month. I absolutely love looking back at these photos and seeing how much our little family unit has grown over the previous 12 months. This year of course will be even more special, as half way through the year we’ll have a new family member joining us in our monthly Me & Mine photos. It’s quite crazy to think that all being well, we will take just four more of these as a threesome!
January has been such a bleak month here in Sussex. Lots of rain, lots of ice and not a lot of sunshine! Every year as soon as the end of January rolls around, I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of Spring. I’m so over the chilly weather now and I’m desperately longing for some brighter days!
We celebrated Josh’s birthday at the beginning of the month with a spa break and a big family meal. The rest of January has been filled with lots of organising and sorting at home to make space for the new baby. I’m really pleased with the progress we have made so far getting everything ready and hopefully by the end of February the children’s new bedroom will be pretty much finished.
In between the rain showers we have tried our best to get outside at the weekends for some fresh air. We’ve actually visited both Bodiam Castle and Scotney castle this month. We spent the morning at Scotney with the lovely Emily and her family last weekend and Jack very kindly took our Me & Mine photo for us which I am so grateful for. It’s always so much easier to ask someone else to take them rather than faffing around with the tripod! He even managed to get one of us all looking at the camera AND smiling. Although, I’m not sure we’ll be able to keep that up all year 😉
