It’s Sunday, which means that it is time for the #rememberingthesedays for photographs that capture the special moments in family life round up with myself and Clare from Mudpie Fridays . Sundays mean weekly round up time – whoop whoop!
This is the 31st week we’ve been running our little community and we continue to be blown away by the incredible images, the beautiful memories shared and the real community feel that is starting to develop. Instagram is my happy place, and I love that you all share these precious moments with us at #rememberingthesedays.
We are now over 20,000 photos in our community – it’s simply incredible!
We would love you all to keep joining in next week, we love seeing those precious family moments from the ordinary moments to the extraordinary, because let’s face it, when you have children even the ordinary moments become special. Simply tag any photos of your memories #rememberingthesedays for a chance to feature.
Every week when I look through the photos I look for a theme that jumps out at me. This week it’s the back and white effect.
This week I’ve loved all of my photos, I’ve been hard pushed to pick out of 4 so you can imagine what I’m like trying to pick a community feature. In the end I went with the Big One at bedtime.
Bedtime. The signal of the end of a long, hard day. For both of us.
Though special mention has to go to my dad this week.
This is a photo of me and my dad. 5 years ago today he died. Suddenly. Unexpectedly. _ He’s missed out on so much in the last 5 years. He didn’t get to walk me down the aisle, he didn’t have the chance to meet my boys, he never saw us emigrate or know that I eventually took to story telling and writing. _ Yet he lives on. In every lesson that he taught me that I in turn pass onto my boys. In everything he showed me about love and marriage that I do with my husband. _ He may not be here anymore but his legacy is. _ Hold those you love extra tight, you can never have enough cuddles, kisses or I love you. Life is precious, life is too short for shoulda, woulda, coulda. And when all else fails there’s always love. _ To my dad – I’ll always remember.
This week saw 5 years since he died, unexpectedly. A stark reminder to love with all you have and that life is too short to fight.
All the smiles
I swear that Kipper is quite possibly the smiliest baby I’ve ever seen!
