Lots of summer lovin' in this months portraits.
We've been trying to make the most of beautiful summer days, squeezing beach visits into our days even if they're brief. Eating dinner outdoors and playing in the yard until bedtime. Messy hair, sticky faces and lots and lots of homemade icypoles.
We finished up this month with a very special road trip all the way to Swan Hill to celebrate my darling nephew's first birthday and Christening. The entire weekend was filled to the brim with warm summer sunshine, beautiful family, hot late nights and so much swimming!
All in all, February has been a month of birthdays and celebration. Of summer fun amidst business mayhem and unrest. It was a month of being purposeful and making time to breathe, to craft and to not be too rigid with routine.
I'm a little sad to see our summer come to an end, but then Autumn is one of my most favourite seasons of all.
