We took these photos ages ago now, must have been the first weekend of the month. We are loving going on weekend walks and as we had family with us on this occasion I grabbed the opportunity to have someone take the photos for us. Always a risk isn’t it but thankfully my brother in law did a fab job!
This month has been pretty hectic but at the same time I feel as though we have spent more time together than ever before. I think the reason being that we are making dedicated family time rather than just existing in each others company. Easily done though isn’t it? So often we will get to Sunday night and feel as though we haven’t seen each other, when actually we will have been together the whole time.
Besides weekend walks every Sunday, we have been to garden centres, we’ve been bowling and we had a very exciting trip to see Santa too. It is all part of my early new year’s resolution to be more appreciative of family. I know it is the ‘it’ word at the moment but hygge really has had a dramatic effect on the way I live and view my life, truly. I feel for the first time I am taking it slow, taking everything in and loving every minute.
One of our favourite things to do now is turn off all technology and really be with each other. We do it every Saturday afternoon and I love that we are able to enjoy being together properly. We are definitely closer as a result, the closest we have ever been and I want to do everything in my power to make sure it continues into the new year and beyond. Setting good foundations early on will, I hope, mean that the children will be close as adults and family time will always be something to treasure. I think I have said before that I have visions of being a grandmother, with the children coming home for the holidays with their partners and their children. It may be a romantic notion but I truly want it to be that way, I want them to always want to come home. I think I watch far too many Christmas movies at this time of year but they just remind me how important my family are to me and I intend on having the best Christmas ever.
What are your plans for the holidays?
