remember forever

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

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.

Over the weekend I was looking through old photos from when Harlow first came into our lives, the overwhelming bitter-sweetness was almost too much. Why does time have to move so quickly as soon as we have kids? I need to do my best to soak every single moment up, to capture moments I never want to forget before they fly by and get much better at ignoring everything expect for them when I am with them.

NOTE: these are all iphone photos, my in pocket memory catcher.

Way too many “I never want to forget this” moment happen in a day, and these are just a small few from our holidays. Today is back to reality day, everyone in our house is either okay or happy about that – except for little Harlow, she is missing her big brother something fierce!

I truly struggled with posting today, after the events in Newton, Connecticut on Friday everything seems trivial and I actually feel extremely selfish. My heart is heavy, my heart hurts for those families who have lost. I feel selfish talking about my sadness and how the events have affected my heart – when nothing on earth can compare to the pain, sadness and loss those families who had children ripped from them, are feeling. I feel selfish posting photos of my children being happy, I feel selfish enjoying things that feel trivial after Friday, I feel selfish being thankful for the lives and loves I am blessed with.

But I also feel the need to continue to find joy in the simple (maybe even now trivial things), I am so very thankful for that these two little people that call me Mommy. Thankful they fill our lives with so much joy, and for that I will do my best to keep them from growing up in a dark world. The only way I know how to keep them from the dark is to keep them in the light, filled with the happiness and joy that we create. So I continue to share moments I never want to forget, even though right now they make me feel very selfish – because not only do I never want to forget how my kids put their boots on the wrong feet, I never want to forget those sweet children the world lost on Friday.

To the families in Newton, Connecticut: we grieve with you, send love to you, you are in all our thoughts – your beautiful children will not be forgotten, WE want to remember them forever.
