Entwined


















“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.”

I've not made a blog post for so long I'd almost forgotten how to do it! My babies are now walking talking toddlers, and most solitary free time is spent doing the laundry.
I did have a 20 minute break from childcare yesterday and the sun was shining so I took these photos as quickly as I could before I went back in to give the girls their bath.

To respect their privacy, I won't be showing my children's faces on this blog, but it feels ok to show you how big they've grown in these photos from our recent Easter egg hunt:

  1. Emalina! It's so lovely to see you again. I think spring is the perfect season for you to make a reappearance on your blog. Many of my favourite posts of yours are those dotted with springtime flowers.

    And the girls! I can't believe how much your littles have grown. I'll also just add that I love their wellies and colourful raincoats!

  4. Em it's so wonderful to see you flitting about in a gorgeous spring frock and hat. It's how I always think of you because I've always loved the pics and shoots taken in your local woods. Your girls are so adorable and what a wonderful way to grow up! xoxo

    1. Thank you dear Desiree! The garden is a bit too wild for them at the moment - they tend to run off in different directions which is hard when it's just me looking after them. A case of picking up the slowest and then running after the fastest! But it will be an amazing garden to play in imaginatively when they get older. I so love seeing what you're up to on Instagram, looking as amazing as ever xx
