Me & Mine Project {April 2014}

dear beautiful

This month we have loved:

* Some amazing family days out, including exploring Blackpool for the first time.
* Celebrating Easter by handing out homemade parcels to unsuspecting people in the village.
* Bug hunting!
* Birthday planning for my Other Half including a football cake made almost 100% by Meg.
* Discovering Modern Family (adults not children) - how did we miss this first time around, it's brilliant!

We took our photos fairly promptly this month which I was quite impressed with, usually I realise about two days before the end of the month and we have to rush around trying to find one we can use.

Okay, it's not perfect but what I'm beginning to learn from this project is that the chances of capturing an everybody is looking, everybody smiling photograph is like gold dust.  I'm learning to settle for the majority of us looking in the right direction!

What have you gotten up to this month?  Hope it's been a fun one!


  1. Cute picture! Looks like Meg's got the hang of smiling for the camera anyway... Look at that grin! #MeandMine

  2. We are slightly addicted to Modern Family. We watched every episode they had on Netflix in a few days. I am loving all the outdoor shots this month.

  3. I love this sweet picture and especially love the idea of your homemade Easter parcels - what a lovely idea! #Me&Mine

  4. Ahhh great photo. You look like you have been busy :)

  5. The gold dust pictures are never the ones we treasure anyway! This is lovely!!

  6. What a lovely photo. The homemade Easter parcels sound fantastic.
    We love Modern Family. It's not as good as it used to be but is still a programme we won't miss x

  7. Lovely photo! We're going to Blackpool for the first time as a family in June. I can't wait!

    ha were the same i always forget hence why this month we just have a sofa picture

  10. Wow! You've shamed me totally…not only handing our Easter parcels to people but taking your photo early. I must try harder ;-) It's a lovely photo xx

  11. Lovely photo! My parents live in Blackpool so I go there a lot. Hope you enjoyed it's tackiness! :) x

  12. I've definitely given up on smiles, or possibly even everyone looking in the same direction; apparently there's just too many other exciting things going on every time I want to take photos!
