Dear Blossom, how you manage to be such a fashionista I’ll never know. Whilst Mummy rolls out of the house in her usual ensemble of scraped back hair, bubble ridden cardi and overly worn jeans your trademark winter shorts and classic style brings coos from strangers and leave Mummy feeling she really must make more of an effort. Dear Bubbles, not one to be left out you rock your own unique style that involves safety pins and over sized skirts. Mummy may be thrifty but you my dear, are oh so cute! Dearest Daughters, may you always remember that life is a precious gift. Every day deserves to be celebrated in your Sunday best.
Am I the only Mummy that looks like a slob in comparison to my immaculately dressed kids?

What have you been thankful for this month?
Dear Blossom, being the big sister is a big responsibility for such little shoulders to bare and you do it with such enthusiasm and grace. Thank you for trying to keep your sister on the straight and narrow, you are incredibly conscientious (if sometimes a bit bossy) just like your Mama! Dear Bubbles, watching you in your big sister’s old clothes really does make my heart melt. I thought I was blessed to have one daughter but now that I have two, I know that my cup is truly overflowing. Dearest Daughters, may your hands and hearts always be this close.
Anyone else gonna admit to being a bit bossy?
I’m late getting my photos up as usual but my excuse is that I have two preschoolers to chase after so life is busy! Bubbles was full of a horrid cold on the weekend but is slowly perking up thanks to lots of time nestled at home and some fresh autumnal air.
Linking up again with Rebekah Gough here are my ten shots trying to capture the beauty in the ordinary.
What beauty did you find in the ordinary today?
For our 10th wedding anniversary we decided to go on a short city break to Riga in Latvia. Having visited many European cities we wanted to go somewhere new to us, not too hot and preferably somewhere with an old town and Riga fit the bill perfectly.
I was both nervous and excited about this trip. Nervous because it was the first time we were leaving the girls with their grandparents for the weekend and excited because I hadn’t been off the island in 2 years, not since our trip to Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands in 2014.
Well the girls were practically angels for their grandparents and Riga did not disappoint! It turned out to be the perfect choice for a charming weekend getaway filled with cobbled streets, medieval buildings and pretty autumnal gardens. My favourite city moment was strolling hand in hand through the many central parks that Riga has to offer, it’s a wonderfully chilled city and incredibly family friendly.
Latvian culture really intrigues me and I definitely want to return and explore this country more fully, next time with my kiddies.
Have you visited any of the Baltic States?
