My hopes





2013 has been a wonderful year. Full of fun adventures and weddings (and a special engagement)I didn'twant to make too many resolutions for this year as I hardly kept any from last year, but I have made a fewhopes instead that I hope might happen so I don't have too much pressure on myself. One of my biggest hopes for this year is to finish writing my Ebook. I am so excited about this as it is a big project that I am passionate about. I will be sharing my tips and advice on how to gather inspiration and step by step from an idea to how to execute the shoot you want and get the final images. I decided against a normal "how to use your camera" type Ebook as I wanted to offer more on how I shoot and my steps up to getting an image I love from an initial idea. I shall be sharing information on the Ebook as the year goes on.


Two weeks ago, I passed my driving test. It is such a life changing thing for me. I live in the town centre and even though we have meadows and woods and a river near us, these places can become rather samey and I often dream of just going exploring in far away woods and discovering new places. Just to be able to pack up a picnic, drive and drive until we find a new place that we want to explore and create memories at. Adventures are so important to me and spending days out in the countryside. Creating these memories and surrounding my children with nature and flower picking and paddling in streams is something I would love for them. This love for adventures coincides with a new project I shall be doing on my blog this year. I am collaborating with my dear friend, Hannah, to bring a bi-monthy link up where we all share our adventures. Whether it be a day out in the woods, or a trip to the seaside or a holiday, anything that you feel is an adventure, we would love you to share with us. We will be asking people to co-host the link ups and I am excited to create this little community of adventure loving people. 



So, I would love to introduce the new project which shall be called "let's have an adventure". You can link up as many posts as you like from that month and visit others to see what they have been up to. It might even give you ideas for your own adventures!! The link ups will be on the 13th and 26th of each month. So let's get memory creating and let's have an adventure!!!!!

  5. lovely idea for a new linky! well done also on the driving thing, neither Tom or I drive and whilst I don't think you need to at all living in a city there are sometimes times when I wished one of us did so we could just hop in the car and go somewhere a bit off the beaten track! xx

  16. I love the idea of an adventure link - we are a bit short on them at the moment but should be a bit more adventurous in the Spring.

    Congratulations on passing your driving test - I remember that meaning an awful lot to me when I managed it.
