5 Generations of Us
I've always been aware, with sharing our lives online, that one day my boy's may no longer desire their stories told so publicly, and it is something I will always allow them to choose. The reasons I write here today remain the same as the reasons I wrote here on the very first day, that the photos I take are the memories I wish to hold as time goes on, and the memories I wish to share with them as they grow. We regularly spend time clicking through post after post, wondering in awe at how much time has passed since they were born, since they took their first steps or since we last visited a place that we all love.
For that reason, I still share our adventures here (for the time being), but I've also shifted focus to my design business, because essentially that's solely mine and something I imagine will continue on indefinitely. I imagine this blog will eventually become part of that, so occasionally I'll discuss design alongside our family life and anything else that comes up from time to time.
On Mothers Day, it's become somewhat of a tradition to visit my Nan's with the boys' (and my Mother!), to visit my great great Nan too, and for us all to have a photo together; it's amazing that we have five generations between us and I adore these photos of us together. Pictures like these are the ones I plan on getting printed and framed so the boys' have them all their lives and can share them with their own children and grandchildren at some point.
Though the day wasn't the most relaxing for me (Martin worked from morning till night so no breakfast in bed or solo baths!), we still had a lovely morning and afternoon tea with my parents. After losing my Nan last September, we felt her loss more than ever, but I try to take on how lucky we are as a family to have each other and to remember how precious every day is.
