just. so. happy.



Daddy's home!

I know she's really, really, really happy when she puts on her squishy-whole-face-smile.

I apologise for the photo overload... but Mum's got a new toy! My sweet husband gave me a Canon 5d Mark iii for my 30th birthday - and I am in love! These are the first personal photos I took with it, just an hour after we picked him up from the airport.

    1. Hazel... very sweet of you to acknowledge... but you have been going through something much more testing than my family! I don't know how you have been coping! I really admire your strength and positivity (I follow on IG). Can't wait to hear the news that your girls are home xx

  13. Oh this sequence is just so sweet. I had to nudge my husband next to me so he could witness the pure love and happiness in these photos as well. Makes me tear up. Love the second shot where he is planting a kiss on eulalie. If a picture ever said a thousand words...you've nailed it. So happy for you three.
