It has taken me this long to to grab my camera and look over our summer photos.
As the evenings have turned autumnal and the days often raining, it has been a pleasure to reflect on the blissful six weeks of having the flower girls all to ourselves.
We went to our beloved Italy, always feels like a second home. The girls fit in so well there and this time we had a family wedding, we had family over from both sides. It was incredible.
Our days were filled with heat,food and the seaside. The nights pretty much the same.
I watched the Bluebell girl taking the wedding in. Loving every single part of it. I watched the little one, just indulging in pure unadulterated fun.
Italy was a huge success, and then it was back to Cornwall for a whole month!
The beach always plays a big part in our life here and we had lots of local days meeting up with friends. We also went to hidden places and places with dunes. The little one found her love for the sea for the first time and had her first surf lesson, while the big one now has moved onto a hard board for surfing.
I loved our day on my favorite beach with my special friends that we have all known forever here. The girls body boarded all day in the crashing waves. They caught Jelly fish in buckets, ate ice creams and grabbed a bucket of popcorn at the end of a long beach day and just watched ” The Big Blue” such simple fun and so good.
Most of the bluebells days were spent in the water and the little one was there for a large part too. The summer was full of love and sand and I enjoyed every moment of it.
The flower girls now can ride. Lucky enough to have a friend who has a pony and can borrow one too. We took long long walks over the Cornish moors with her dogs and the girls riding beside us. The sun shone and the world couldn’t have been a better place at that time. The Bluebell cantered for the first time, with a view of the sea , over the scrub land she went. I would imagine and I hope that will stay with her forever.
The summer of 2017, although long gone now, will be special for many reasons. Lots of memories made.
