Me & You {February 2014}

dear beautiful

As February is the month of lurve, we decided to try something a bit cutesy for our photos this month.  It's our first time messing around with our camera in this way and although I'm nervous about showing off the pictures, we had such a laugh shooting all these photos.

We must have taken at least 100 shots and have some great fails which will NEVER reach the light of day!

It's amazing to know that even after seven years of marriage we can still laugh together like overexcitable teenagers.  

I needed to laugh.  

This month the stress of moving, of trying to do everything and be everyone to everyone has finally caught up with me and I've felt as though I'm being crushed under the pressure. My freelance work has really taken off this year and it's taking some time to adjust to the differences needed in our routines.  My Other Half has been amazing and really stepped up to help me; getting up early with the kids, taking on the lion's share of the housework, allowing me to just have some time to myself.  I know how lucky I am to have met someone who will fight for me in such a way.  Who will allow me to have these moments of admitting I am struggling and who, without judgement, will make me laugh, lighten my load, believe in me.  Who will spend several hours taking really silly pictures with me.

We don't really 'do' Valentine's Day so this is our way of celebrating how much we mean to each other.

Hope you like it!






Probably need to work on my smile though...

    These photos are absolutely brilliant! My husband would never do this for me. So pleased for you (and slightly selfishly for me!) that your freelance work is taking off. I'm getting nervous about starting out as a freelancer and also about whether I will get any support with the kids and house. If I'm honest, I don't think I will and that's what slightly scares me.

  9. Thank you :) Luckily my husband is not shy about putting himself in the limelight!! You will be fine, I think mostly I didn't expect the sudden jump in my work and it caught me off guard a bit. I shouldn't really complain about having too much work though lol
