Little Miss H has been obsessed with mini-marshmallows ever since she had her first hot chocolate before Christmas. And I am obsessed with rocky roads.

I recently read this fabulous baby wish list from the beautiful and bloomin' stunning Heledd at Running in Lavender. In this post, she mentioned her love for Baby Wearing. Which got me thinking about how much I loved wearing Little Miss H and how I miss it now that she flatly refuses to go anywhere near a carrier. Rainbow Bean is due in July.

Days out in the winter sunshine – My Captured Moment

As a family we love going for days out. It is a chance for us to get out in the sunshine, absorb some Vitamin D and enjoy the sites of Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding area. It also allows us to spend quality time together. To laugh, to talk and to be a family. Mr H took some time off over Christmas. When the weather was nice, we packed up the car and went to parks, farms and on a hunt for…
