It’s happy friday everyone! Hurray! Only three more sleeps (as you would say in the UK) and we are off to the good ole U.S. of A!!!!!!! There was a drum roll in there, could you tell? I have never been so excited in my life. I get to go home and see my family but even better they get to meet my daughter for the first time ever! It’s a really big deal this time and all my siblings are flying in from all over to be there too. I can’t wait to blog about it all from state side.
I am a huge fan of fast, easy recipes the whole family will love. If you haven’t checked out my blog before I share a recipe every Tuesday for parents looking for that quick fix the whole family can enjoy from baby to toddler to adults. I am ever so excited I am now a #bookbuddy for Parragon cookbooks. I haven’t put it down since it arrived. I am so excited to test out some recipes and google over all the amazing food photography in it. Definitely one to read!
I have been so behind on my tv shows lately but finally I watched the finales of Grey’s Anatomy, Made in Chelsea, and Nashville. Three great series ending all filled with packed drama gearing up for next season. That’s the only thing that sucks about summer all the good shows end and we have to wait until September for their return.

If you have been following LTM long you will notice, I have found a new love for food photography and styling photos. I have a long way to go before I am taking photos for recipe books but maybe someday I will get there! These turned out fantastic just in time for my mother-in-law to come visit and join me for a cup of tea. Click the photo for the recipe. They are super easy to make as are all my recipes and ones even the kiddies will love! Who doesn’t love, apple, cinnamon and sugar together?
Ok, I give full permission to laugh, I was being down right silly here but it’s fun to be silly sometimes. These are a few things I have picked up recently and haven’t had them off. I am usually not a fan of sketcher but these silver and gold sandals are so comfy and look good on. I grabged this dress and these sunglasses from Next, my necklace is Oasis, and my cardigan is Forever21. I was trying to find my inner Audrey Hepburn, does it show?
We had the pleasure of celebrating Missy Moo’s 1st birthday all month long with birthday parties, cake smashing photo shoots, poems, and dinner out with just the family on the actual day. I have found it really emotional, her turning one. I know that she is my last baby and therefore it is bittersweet but hard to let go of the baby era. There will be no more baby bump, no more breastfeeding, or no more first foods. The cooing is gone and in place of it I hear little girl noises and words now. I have two toddlers now. How did that happen? So before I leave you all to join my USA family for the next two months, I say goodbye to my last baby, being a baby. Somehow going away for so long just makes it sadder, because she turns one, we leave and two months later return and she will be so different by then.
