It’s not often I feature in pictures. Mostly because I’m usually behind the camera. And also because there is only ever a 2% success rate in taking a picture of me where I don’t either have my eyes closed or look like a startled chipmunk. Seriously, the similarities are striking.

We had a wonderful evening walk in the woods a few nights ago. Hubby with his camera. Spectacular light.

There have been many things that have been chaffing me this summer. Heat, wind. The offence that Christmas in the summertime causes me – I’ve tried to get past it but it feels WRONG. If we didn’t have our wonderful overseas family and some amazing friends making the days fun and happy I think it could actually be a rather glum time of year for me. We are lucky.

But the summer light. Oh the light.The evenings that literally glow. They make summer. That redeems the little things and reminds me I don’t really want winter back quite yet. Although I do reserve the right to do a little happy dance on mornings where it’s grey and damp and a bit chilly.

    Oh, how I am looking forward to our evening hikes again, I think that is one of the best things about summer.

    I see your little miss still loves to be carried. My little man was the same until last year, sadly now my carrier is out of service. I miss it.

    Enjoy your weekend.

      Its wonderful in the evenings isn’t it. I’m loving that she still wants to be carried. She was fiercely independent between 2.5-3.5 but happily ops to hop up now – although her 18kgs makes it pretty hard work!! I will be so sad when it stops altogether

    it is so nice to see the face behind the blog! Your hubby is quite the talent with a camera isn’t he… My days of carrying our little girl finished about a year ago, just too heavy for me. Enjoy every last minute of it xxx

      He did well getting that shot – I think it was a lucky capture in the multitudes of me with my eyes shut! He is very handy with a camera – he’s got a better eye than I have (and more patience!)

    Beautiful photos, and please, you can’t be glum in the Summer! It looks so gorgeous out there, particularly your shots with any water in them. If you really can’t get over the glum, then we may have to work out the practicalities of a house swop in the future!
