It has been so chilly this last week. I know its been colder in other places (we didn't get snow), but we've still been feeling the chill. On Sunday we went for a blustery walk on the beach. The children wouldn't keep their mittens on and insisted on playing in the salty shore water, needless to say they got pretty cold, pretty quick and we didn't last long! We're so lucky to be able to hop in the car for less than 10 minutes and then be at the beach. 

We're finally getting settled in the new house, the novelty of the cows and sheep being outside is not wearing off, I love how Edie wants to "see the moos mummy" every time we try to go anywhere. Charlie is less bothered, but still gets pretty excited when he sees a pheasant wandering around the back garden.

Our little slice of the world feels pretty happy right now, I'm looking forward to a weekend of baking with the children, more blustery walks and as always a bit of  knitting!

Life has been so hectic over the last six months. So much has happened and changed - all in a good way. Today has been the first weekend since last July that we've been able to mooch about. I even got to bake with the boy, brilliant.  Sometimes you just need the simplest of things to ground you. Back to the washing!

Happy days xx

Happy New York

Happy new year! 4 years ago today, at minus 2 degrees on a sunny wintry day, we got married in New York! It was magical. Our closest family were with us and we had such a lovely day. A morning walk across the Brooklyn Bridge at sunrise with the family, breakfast in a singing diner (hilarious!), the ceremony in a little bandstand next to a frozen lake in Central Park and then a wonderful meal at the Rainbow Room at the top of the Rockerfella centre, ended with a trip to the top of the Rock! What an amazing 4 years - we were just the two of us then and now we're a little family of 4 - happy days!

Happy New York indeed x
