Before i had the girls, i would spend my days riding my bike through the countryside, taking polaroids of anything i found beautiful and sitting in woods or fields writing and drawing. I have taken around 300 polaroids in total and i just wanted to share a few of my little collection.
Some days i really miss the freedom of just taking off whenever you feel like it and just spend hours and hours reading under a tree or drawing the flowers without having to worry about where the girls are or what they need or giving them all your attention.
It it lovely now though that i can share these times with them as they grow older. Their daddy likes fishing, and i can just see me and the girls with our sketchpads or books under a big willow tree, while their daddy catches little fish in the river. Its so exciting to think of all the lovely summer days ahead.
I would love to buy Elle a camera for her birthday this year. I have told her that i will keep every picture she takes and then make up photo books for her to look back on when she is older. A childs imagination is one of the most wonderful things in the world. I cannot wait to take Elle and Mia out and ask them to photograph anything they find beautiful and see what they photograph.
