    oh I love this post my lovely! Thanks for tagging me. I am rubbish with memes, but I will make an effort this time as it’s so nice to focus on the positive! The photo of you and your hubby dancing is great! I absolutely love your dress. Some really beautiful things mentioned there. It is all so full of love and kisses (sticky ones hehe), cuddles. You are a real mummy!!!

      Thank you Mel – I love that photo too, it’s one of my favourites. I loved the idea of focusing on so many positives too and it made me realise that nearly all the things that make me happy are completely free and just involve time with my family 🙂

    Such a lovely post! It is very important to focus on the positives! I agree with you, ‘I love you Mummy,’ is the best phrase in the world! xxx

    Hi my love, it’s been a while and what a lovely easy-to-read post and you look fab dancing with hubby. The photo of the girls hugging is just adorable. Love that one of your points is seeing your girls happy at Church. We are RC and we go to Mass (try to go hehe) every Sunday as it’s what we both did as children, and seeing my children do the things I did, in the very same Church I can’t quite put into words. I shall vote for you now in the Inspire section for the BiBs x
