#MeAndMine - A Family Portrait (March)

I posted a family portrait on Instagram last night.

Nothing new there, I hear you say.

Those who follow me on IG know I love it so much. I spend more time there than any other social media I think. I love sharing captures of family life and getting insights into friends lives.

This photo was different though.

This photo was the first photo of us as a family of four.

Can you believe it?

It was taken on Good Friday (29th March) by my brother-in-law. The day after Tiny Ched's 1st Birthday. It took us a year and a day to get a photo of all of us. I feel so unhappy about this. My photos are usually of the kids and occasionally of me and the kids or Matt and the kids.

Never of all of us.

I said it was something I wanted to change. 

So the lovely Lucy saw my photo and words and asked me if I'd like to join in with the #MeAndMine challenge. Take a family portrait each month for the year so here I am. I think it will be a great way to make sure that I capture family photos that I can treasure. I wish I'd heard about the link-up sooner (my own fault for not being about much this year).

The month of March has been an up and down kind of month (much like the year so far) full of lots of illness, hospital visits and the kids celebrated their 4th and 1st birthdays. TC was actually ill the day this was taken and Matt and I were completely knackered and emotional but I still love it.

We are determined to have a happier month during April. The Florida holiday is fast approaching and we also have something else happening which could prove great for our family if it all comes together.

Here's to our next family portrait!

Lovely picture Heather! So awesome to have you join the 'me & mine' party! Thanks for taking a look at my blog! Boy do I agree, I wish we had more pictures of all of us together as a family over the years. The ones together are so special! Hope to see you again next month too!

Chipped high heels and free of moisture, flaking ft are really unappealing, specially in flip flops. To combat this concern, proper before heading to bed, relax your feet in the tepid to warm water bathroom for 10 minutes, coat them oil jelly then deal with these with a heavy set of socks to freeze the dampness. Quickly, you'll have gentle feet. [url=]Spidfdbs4ny[/url]

side blues scene was disheartening, but, it also gave rise
to the need for a fresh start, which came in the form of the
next blues-only venue, Antone's, founded by the late Clifford Antone, during the summer of 1975.

Beautiful family shot! I will have to try and do this too. I think we have taken about two family pictures ( if that !) in the ten months since my baby boy's birth. I follow you on Instagram-hope your little guy had a wonderful birthday in the end. It is so tough when they're sick and unhappy and you desperately want them to be well and celebrate their special day. We have had a sick couple of weeks too-let's hope sunshine and health are on the horizon!
