Happy FRIYAY everyone! We are back from our very rainy Venice trip and looking forward to a fun filled weekend as my Momma leaves Thursday so we must make the most of it while she is still here.
This week has been a great one being in Venice and also having my mom here for her birthday with the kids. We haven’t had a moment to spare and I love that when she visits but it also means it goes way too fast. I start getting emotional when I think about her leaving and how we can’t just meet up for a coffee or go to her house for Sunday dinners like most people can. I wish I had that so badly but to stay positive let’s look back on some #littleloves this week that made me smile.
I can’t believe I had the chance to sit down and reading a whole magazine from front to back, on an airplane with Prosecco and chips at my side and no sticky fingers trying to intrude or sitting on my lap. It’s been a long time since I traveled without my kids on a plane and it was blissful. I read each page slowly and poured over the photos like the good old days.
I love this song and it’s absolutely my favorite song to use for family day trips out on my youtube videos too. Love the raspiness in her voice. It’s a great one to bookmark.
We had a minor glitch for Bloggers Insight in February but I am back on track with a great interview from the lovely Katie from Mummy Daddy Me sharing her photography knowledge with us all.
I wore my poncho all week in Venice to help keep a little warm, I would say dry but as you can see behind me that was impossible. Of course, I had to scoop up my awesome poncho in yellow from the street venedors! People were even abandoning their umbrellas because the wind was quite fierce on the second day we were there but with our ponchos on, my mom and I were not going to let the rain slow us down.
I am totally cheating on the “made section” as I attempted to make Salted Chocolate Brownie Cookies last week and they came out absolutely horrible. So badly made, I had to throw them away and that’s only the second time I have ever made something inedible but I was highly disappointed. Other than my melting mess of chocolate heap, I made a lovely bubble bath in our Venice hotel. We got upgraded somewhere in the mix of reservations and ended up with the biggest room ever and it had a jacuzzi tub with powerful jets and I “made” the bubbles and made the most of a quiet bath time without children.
Have you seen my 5 Top Tips for Food Styling, I know many of you like to drool over my food photography and ask me about how I style them so I wanted to share with everyone what I have learned so far, this past year. I have made some new “food” goals for myself for the next year for practicing my skills further and there may be a “new food blog” in the making separate to LTM. Watch this space!
It’s the time of year again….
