The Joys of Autumn

It's been such a long time since I wrote any personal posts on this blog and that makes me sad.

This blog used to be a place for me to share my adventures with my family. In fact, I began it to document our days together and to act as a virtual scrapbook for us all to look back on someday.

But now my boys are getting older. I'm conscious about how much I share them online and what I share about them. 

Tyler is of school age and I don't want all his friends knowing all his business... but I miss documenting our days so much.

Jacek's mother died on October 27th and he and his brother, as well as his father, went through all their pictures of times they had with their mother. He revisited the memories he made with her in all these places and was so thankful of the photos.

It made me appreciate even more all the photos I've taken over the years as a family of our own. We've captured thousands of memories in time to last forever and I'm so thankful for that.

 


It also made me realise how precious this blog is. I've written so many thoughts on our memories together, recorded the children's birthdays, my letters to them, etc. I want to continue with that and have this space for us all to look back on someday.

I envision making this blog private one day, but for now I'll keep sharing my photography and thoughts with the world.

I took these pictures of the boys on one of our recent visits to one of our favourite places - Fota Gardens. I'm not going to lie, being limited to a 5k radius during this second lockdown has been hard. I'm thankful we have beautiful places within our 5k, but still, being a family of adventurers has made staying in this area hard.

The boys were looking gorgeous in their stunning new jackets from Finnish brand Reima, who we've been collaborating with the past few months. The colours of the trees out in Fota Gardens were amazing.

The boys were pretending that a particularly orange tree was on fire - they love anything to do with the emergency services. They're so sweet when they play nicely together.

This isn't the autumn and winter I thought we'd be having, but I'm trying to make the most of it for them.
