After the manic season of open houses, exhibitions and working on a couple of commissions, it left me shattered. Truth be told I felt like I had photographers block. So after putting my camera away (lasted a week)! I decided to return to photographing, but out of my love for it rather than working for an audience. These blackberries, echo how a versatile fruit can be found in such a thorny setting. When blackberry picking, you are careful, of thorns and staining and often can be foraged. I have a weakness for found things, for consideration and simplicity. This pin has fast become my mantra 'live less out of habit and more out of intent.'

This is how we started the first day of the six week holiday in Chorleywood with our dear friends visiting from Toronto. The garden was such a stunning space to chill, play and snap some photos. Hope that you are off to an amazing start to the summer. Love that the weather has been so good to us. For those who follow me on Instagram you will see that we had fun camping and returned safe and sound.

Today C turned six! She was thrilled, the run up to her birthday she mentioned it to everyone we met! Yesterday C remarked that she felt like she was getting older. Then this morning, she was so excited that she blurted out with sheer delight that it felt like it is the first birthday she ever had. My darling girl, you bring such a joy to our hearts. We love how you observe life and share your thoughts so eloquently. You love your dear friends, you are so caring towards them. For some reason you have the need to change your outfits several times during the day! Your a master of pretend play, have a connection with singing and love to talk about the things that pop into your mind. Your love for Jesus is so pure, filled with songs. You hate it when we get cross with you, but massively confident in our love for you. It is easy for us to show compassion, as you do it daily. Thank you for the comfort you give to all that touch your heart. Today was about Birthday giggles. Enjoy being six!
