    Sisters – January

    A couple of years ago I was taking part in a photography blog meme along with other mummy bloggers. Unfortunately last year I stopped doing it and now looking back I really regret it as with it I also stopped taking pictures with my girls.  I looked it up to see if this project is still going on the other blogs but I was sad to see that it doesn’t… I mean the project was actually called “Siblings” but all 2016 and a couple of months in 2017 I recalled it “Sisters” in order to reflect our family better. After all I have two girls so…why not call it Sisters?…

    Sisters {May}

    My dearest daughters, Watching you smile makes me realise how beautiful my life is. I love you both so much. How can I regret being here with you when the life you offer me is so full happiness? No matter where you go in life or who you grow up to be, I’ll always be right here, standing behind you… encouraging you both to live your dreams despite all. I know sometimes I get upset and like any other parent I scream at you…but please do understand…I am also growing and understanding. Nobody just knows how to be a parent. We all have to learn how to. And as you…

    Siblings – The Summer Edition

    It’s been a really busy summer and I really can’t believe how fast it flown by, We spent almost a month in UK and since we’ve been home we had so much fun. We spent most of our time going to the beach, visiting friends and going out at the park and…let’s not forget we had lots of parties. I guess time spent like this with a couple kids will never be boring. I took lots of pictures while we were out and about in UK – lots of memories to look at. My favourite two pictures are the below:   I love how happy both girls look in both…

    Life challenges

    We are back in England after a bit over two years now. Not to stay. Just to visit. Unfortunately our money situation still doesn’t allow us to live here as a family. Plus the fact that we have no family support is another thing that keeps our family apart. I guess is one of those things that we have to go through. Other families have their own challenges so really…I should not complain. I know that s very important for the family to be together but sometimes the things are not as easy as that. We’ve been here three days already and my girls already suffer in a way. I…

    My precious arrows

    I promised myself that every time that I will post about my girls I will find ways to describe my love through them through words. I try to post pictures of them every week and also take part in the “Living Arrows” meme. This is where my idea came from today and I think that I will even make a collage of photos and stick these words in the middle too!   My every day quest is to make my girls happy and smiley. The hardest thing I even done is to tell them off for something. I wish I could let them play as much as they want to…

    Slow life in the park

    We are very lucky to live in a small town (in some aspects anyway). This means that everything we need is close to us and no further than 10-20 minutes walk. So as expected the local park is really close too. The park is not as fabulous or as clean as the ones in London but its still quite big and quite enjoyable. Like in any park there are parts that are really busy and parts that are mostly empty and where you can really lay back as a parent and let your kids PLAY. My girls love spending time together and with their friends. And of course I love…
