A few weeks back (maybe I need to do 2 lifestyle posts a week to fit them all in?!) our church held a community day in our local park. It was where ours and a few other churches got together, talked, ate ice cream, listened to music, socialised and kiddies ran about in the sunshine. It was lovely.
A little bit obsessed with this pleated emerald maxi skirt.
I love this shot because it has Ben (my new little step brother, who I'll properly introduce one day) and Norman (the nicest, most interesting man from our church EVER) in it. Little nothingy fact for you there!
My up and my down in the family tree.
Hollie (my new little step sister).
In the last few months I've experienced some amazing, luxurious things but days like this always top them. Days when you're close to your nest, feel loved and valued by the people you share it with and feel content with your lot.
For the first time in a long time I feel like our family is working. My Dad has a new girlfriend who has 2 children and is like a breath of fresh air. She values family and fun above appearances and protocol and I feel like her ethos has spread to us all and we are all really enjoying life. In an ideal world my Dad would have found her right after my Mum passed away, but alas, we has 20 years of bleaugh to make us so much more thankful for what we have now. I'm so glad that hers and Darcy's arrival coincided too.
From a not-normally-into-Summer person, I'm enjoying this season far more than I should. It's making me feel all kinds of happy.
What do you plan to do in the next couple of months? Please give this winter-lover some sunny ideas!
