School holidays are finally, FINALLY over! Seriously. We are shattered. The beginning of term could not come fast enough! But luckily, we were blessed with some amazing weather! While we did stay here in town most of the time, we were able to sneak away for a few days and enjoy some love from the… Continue reading Oh the Holiday Snaps!
Late Summer Showers are best when shared. Lucky they can be cute. More and more I see them playing together. They have a running commentary about the things they do, they thank each other for helping, and they share snacks. It is very sweet to see. I guess I feel lucky that they have this… Continue reading Sharing & Summer Showers
