This is my first time joining in with this wonderful Linky! Before I started my own blog I would always admire all my favourite bloggers’ Me & Mine family portraits so I thought it was about time I joined in myself!
November has been such a lovely busy month for us. We celebrated Bella’s 2nd birthday at the beginning of the month with a fireworks party with our nearest and dearest. (Still can’t believe she’s TWO!) We then had a wonderful day in London at the BBC Good Food Show and even saw the baking Queen herself; Mary Berry! Josh and I enjoyed a blissful child free dinner and night away for my birthday along with a couple of other lovely birthday meals with family & friends. Overall November has been wonderful. One of those months that just makes you feel all warm & fuzzy inside. After all the terrible recent events happening around the world I’m feeling extra grateful to be able to experience all these lovely moments with my little family. I’m holding them just that little bit tighter.
Now that November is coming to an end and all the Birthday shenanigans are over I am finally ready to embrace Christmas with open arms! Thanks to Black Friday I have now made a good start on my Christmas shopping and am expecting lots of deliveries over the new week or so. We’re planning to go and choose our tree next weekend and decorate the house, I’m really excited for that this year as Bella gets so excited whenever she sees a Christmas tree in a shop and yells ‘TREEEEEE MUMMYYYYY!’ Too.Freaking.Cute. We’ve also got a few festive family days planned which I’m really looking forward to.
Our first ever Me & Mine Family Portrait was taken by Charlotte Rawles Photography at our Autumn Mini Shoot on the 1st of November and I think it’s my new favourite photo of the three of us! I set it as the wallpaper on my iPhone and it makes me smile every time I see it. I just received my first ever DSLR as a joint birthday & Christmas present from my Dad and I can’t wait to have a proper play with it and snap lots of family photos over the festive season!
