Welcome to our family blog. We share lots of posts here, and you can also follow along over there: 



I have survived January. I have more than just survived it though, I've actually thrived. I think this is the best start to the year I have had for a long time. I don't normally like January very much (it's Winter without any of the joys of Christmas to look forward to) but this year I have put effort into making sure I've had a good month and it's really paid off. I'm feeling full of energy, inspiration, love and motivation to continue the year in February.

At the beginning of the month I wrote this list, and this list, completed this lovely booklet and chose my word for 2012.

It's been a month full of exercise, which has boosted my energy levels and made me feel super strong. Along with Catherine and Jenna tomorrow I will have completed our 30 in 30 days challenge. That's 30 work-outs in 30 days. Love it!

I have made sure I've had time for myself, time as a couple and lots of time with my children. And, these are all things that will hopefully continue each month of 2012 and beyond.

I have been busy making some big changes to my photography business, which I will be launching soon , and of course I have finally started this blog. Thank you so much for all your lovely and kind support so far. I am very excited to be currently doing Your Darling Blog course, which will soon be resulting in this blog being properly and beautifully designed (crossing my fingers!) and I can't wait.

I am now working on my list for February, which includes:

Design, fitness, craft (birthdays, valentines), a treat for me, half-term, time with friends, decluttering and our February couple treat!

I hope you've had a good start to the year too! xxx
