REMEMBER FOREVER / 18

FROWN-UPSIDE-DOWN DRAWN-TO-PINK SCOOTER-AND-PIANO STOP-FOR-A-KISS NON-REALXING-COFFEE BALLERINA-DREAMS Without my iphone I think i would miss so many of these little but oh so significant moments in life. That’s probably a lie, because I would just be lugging my SLR around or maybe still have a point and shoot. But the iphone in my pocket makes capturing a moment as it happens SO much easier and inconspicuous (so they barely see me and don’t instantly stop). I love going through my camera roll and adore that struggle I face when choosing which moments need a few extra words for memories sake. There are just so many moments that I never want to forget and I love that I am always able to capture SO many.

#HANDHCALENDAR

moments to remember, a photo a month, photo project, month to month changes, kids growing A years worth of iPhone photos, taken in the same spot at the same time every month. All saved under the IG hashtag #handhcalendar . I really adore this series and all that it captures; the change in my kids throughout the year, the love between them and our beautiful and full four seasons of weather. I am so glad I didn’t drop it or forget to keep it up, because I almost did many a times.

Have a fantastic weekend and a great holiday week, no matter which holiday you celebrate. I am planning to take it easy and take a wee break on the blog next week. I have really big plans to eat too much, relax, put my feet up, practice lot’s of yoga, have loads of facetime dates with far away friends and family and most importantly cuddle the crap outta my family. Wishing you all the happiest of holidays, wishing you all loads of love, happiness and some extra time to relax and recharge – talk soon! x

I WANT TO REMEMBER FOREVER / 16

the happiness dad brings dancing in the street kids learning french siblings teaching eachother yoga with mom the simple things create the most joy Wow, number 16 – a post that I thought would be a one time thing ended up being one of my favorites. My iPhone is my favorite for catching those memories that happen before I can grab the hefty SLR and Instagram is my favorite for saving them all in one place. Honestly I love looking back on my personal IG feed and seeing moments that bring so much joy. This series has been so great at making sure I don’t forget the emotions and thoughts that went with the moment, also it’s a fun way to share some of my fav IG snaps for you non IGers. My next step (in life) will be printing pictures or creating photo books, because that is something I seriously stink at.
