Me and Mine - September 2016

The last day of the month means it is time to publish (and usually write) my Me and Mine post. I love this linky as it is a great reminder to capture photographs of us as a family. I didn't manage to publish one last month as M refused to be in any group pictures and it didn't feel right to post without her, but this month we managed to get some. Yay!

There have been 3 super special events this month:
M started school. She was really excited before it started, but as the days move on she has been less keen about going in everyday. She is learning lots and although she isn't keen on talking about school (apart from complaining about the tidying up), but we have had some conversations about topics she must have learnt for instance "if the world is round, why doesn't it look it?" and "why doesn't if feel like the world is spinning?"
My cousin got married and M was a bridesmaid. M got to wear beautiful shoes, a beautiful dress and then she ran around in a field all afternoon. She loved it. The bride looked beautiful as well. Oh and the bridesmaids wore blue (if you are that way inclined).
It was my mummiversary. Which could also be described as M turning 5. We had a wonderful weekend focused on her, including a trip to a shopping centre where we told her she could have whatever she wanted. This was too difficult a concept for her to understand as she normally isn't allowed more than one toy in a shop. We managed to get a few things eventually though.

At the wedding I gave my sister my camera and she snapped away to record us all being dressed up.

The closest to a traditional portrait
Our pictures aren't perfect, I'm not sure they ever will be, but they have all 4 of us in and they make me smile.

The capture above is my favourite of the series. I love how M and my partner are messing about and laughing with each other.

The portrait above should be named "the out take". It's not a good shot of any of us and that is why I have included it. It's a struggle to get good pictures of a group, but when I look back at these pictures in years to come I wont care about perfection, I will smile at the memories of a lovely day.


  1. Oh I always love a good out-take - they tell so much more of the story than just nice posed portraits! It looks like you were having a lovely time and M's dress is gorgeous!

    1. Thank you. Yes we had a lovely time, I hope I can get the grass stains out of the dress

  2. Ah it sounds like such an exciting month and well done on getting everyone in the photos, it's one of those things that is so hard but so great to have x

    1. Thank you. I really should plan something more exciting for October!

  3. What an exciting month. These are gorgeous too. So much fun and memories I am sure to look back on. It's hard to get everyone together I know but so nice to have those captures each month at the end of the year all together. #meandmineproject
