Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows, a weekly linky post in which I share snaps of our children, I love this linky as it enables me to keep a record of our children over time, that and it gives me a family based focus for the start of each and every week.

As you may have already read in my past posts, we spent this past weekend down in Derbyshire celebrating a family wedding in which my children played the key roles of ‘flower girl’ and ‘page boy’. I being the proud parent have since plastered pictures here, there and everywhere as my kids are not only super cute but they are my everything, they literally rock my World.… Read more from this post

My family and I have enjoyed a weekend away celebrating my brother-in-law (and now sister-in-laws) wedding. Our children J & E were very kindly asked to be  ‘Flower Girl’ and ‘Page Boy’ for the day and what a day it was!

I may be an August baby but I’m far more of an ‘October girl’. Autumn is definitely my season, being a redhead I’ve always tended to favour the autumnal colour palettes especially in terms of fashion and beauty. That and I have a bit of a thing about leaves, they were the main theme of our wedding back in 2007 when everything from the dress, the suits, the tables, the stationary even down to the wrapping paper was covered in a leaf motif. I’ve since continued to use leafy themes and shades of mocha to decorate around the house, I guess I am just ‘an autumn gal’ through and through.… Read more from this post
