September 21, 2013


I started this blog the day I found out I was pregnant with Mason, the 21st of September 2012. Partly because I was so overwhelmed with emotions and feelings and needed somewhere to place them.. But mostly because I've always loved writing.

I didn't particularly think I was any good (which I've since learnt doesn't actually matter), but I've decided to just put it out there. From this blog's inception, it's been some sort of a secret I've kept from friends and family. For various reasons.
I don't really like my own writing.
Bloggers tend to cop a bit of flack. 
But most of all, the fear of being vulnerable. What if people don't like my writing? What if someone steals photos of Mason? What if I get mean comments?

My husband, Luke, has always known about this space and supports me in my love of writing. I procrastinate a lot but after a long time deliberating, I've decided to make known that I blog. Is it blogging or just writing? Can I say.. I write? Will it get the same reaction?

It seems fitting to finally come to terms with this space today - the anniversary of the day I found out I was pregnant with Mason. The anniversary of the day this blog was given a meaning.

So... I write. And I take photos. Neither of which will be the best you've ever seen but my love for documenting this incredibly fast and fleeting life is motivation to keep this space going. So I don't promise perfectly styled photos and beautifully strung words but I promise it'll always be the truth.

Thank you for dropping by, it's so lovely to have you here.
