Thoughts from an ex traveler

Packing a suitcase, boarding a plane, discovering new parts of the world was once something that was second nature to myself – I have so many fond memories of travelling and looking back on all of these pictures brings such joy. I love learning about the history and culture of a new place, trying new…

6 months pregnant

In true Little Lawrence fashion it seems that we have another little stubborn Lawrence like their older brother, so much so that they were persistent at staying…

Jubilee Weekend – Strawberry Picking

What a special historic weekend it has been,…

Going Through Changes

This year so far and the tail end of last has been a period of growth, going through changes, facing past insecurities, learning, hurting and trying to evolve into a better version of myself. It doesn’t come without its growing pains and I’ve had to face some home truths, work against some of my factory…
