"a portrait of, and occasionally a quote from my children, once a week, every week, in 2017"

Jackson: All dressed up in his Dad's shirt, pants, belt and shoes to head to a formal dance at our local private Catholic school. He was so excited but playing it cool while getting ready. He has only been to one dance at his own school but really couldn't wait to get to this one. I believe there may have been some girls involved to make him a little more keen to go. I cried. He's just getting so old!

Lily: The snow brings her loads of pleasure and unfortunately loads of anxiety also. Driving anywhere right now isn't very fun for her. Friday she chose to skip school (with my blessing) and have a snow day as the fear of getting to school and getting home was far too much for her to handle. Hopefully her troubles ease up. Her anxieties seemed to have calmed over the years but these last few days have been very stressful (although she sure knows how to have fun and play in the snow, thank goodness).  Fingers crossed things will get back to normal once the snow disappears.

Joining in with the lovely Donna and others for Living Arrows.


  1. Wow that red jacket in the snow is stunning!

  2. Lovely photos! I just found your blog via Donna's Living Arrows post :-)

  3. We never get proper snow here - just a very slight dusting, but the UK isn't accustomed to snow or ice and so even the slight snow and cold weather makes the roads here so dangerous so I can understand Lily's concerns. Jackson looks so smart - I hope he had a great time! x

  4. Jackson looks so smart - how sweet that he's dressed in his dad's clothes too. And I can understand how Lily feels - I once worked in a ski resort and driving in the snow can be pretty scary. I hope she's feeling less anxious soon. #LivingArrows
