Each month we’ve enjoyed joining in with the fab linky “Me & Mine – A Family Portrait”. It’s a great linky run by 7 lovely ladies, it’s designed to encourage you to get your family in front of the camera for one fun family photo a month. I love taking pictures, so there’s always a good reason to take a picture. But I’m really awful at making sure I’m in some pictures to. Which is why this linky appealed to me, I can now look back each month and see a photo of my beautiful family. You can check out last months photo here.
This months photo, to be honest is not that interesting. It’s a rushed photo, taken in a bady lit room using an app with a self timer function on C’s iPhone. But it’s a photo that will always mean so much to me as its the last family photo we ever took in the home we created our son in and eventually took him home to.
The room we are standing in is the living room, just before we handed back the keys to our first official home in Dorset. It’s just an ordinary room, a bit small for a living room, a bit on the cold side and slightly mouldy. But it’s our first room we were able to take Monkey into, without midwives or nurses.
Now we’re starting a new chapter, but I can’t wait until Monkey is old enough for me to tell him all about his first ever home. It’s one of the most special places on earth, as its where our miracle began.
