Well here we are at the weekend already and it’s time for The Sunday Parenting Party. How did this week fly by so fast? It’s been awfully quiet around here lately, I’m so sorry. In fact, I haven’t posted anything since last week’s Sunday Parenting Party.
There’s been lots happening this week despite the lack of posts. I’ve been busy working with a fab designer on a new look for One Perfect Day. It will be a few more weeks before we are ready to launch the new design, but it’s looking wonderful and I can’t wait to share it with you all. On Monday I will be launching a new weekly series which I am SO excited about so be sure to stop by for that. This week I will also be guest posting at one of my favourite blogs Carrots Are Orange. I’m so honoured to be writing for Marnie. I’ll be sure to share the link with you all on my Facebook page and Pinterest so keep an eye out for it.
I’m also changing the way I introduce The Sunday Parenting Party – hence the “weekly reflections” title. I’ll be looking back at the week that was, sharing updates and happenings, or general musings. Lots of little changes happening around here and there’s more to come!
After a hectic week, we decided a day at the beach was in order today. It makes me smile so much when I see R (4 yrs) by the water. Not so long ago he was so reluctant to go anywhere near the water’s edge. Nowadays he challenges us to race with him to see who will be first into the water.
We love to search for treasures at the beach. We always find something special to bring home and add to our collection shells, driftwood and sea glass. Usually it is just one or two small shells, or a beautiful pebble. Today though, we happened upon an absolute bounty of AMAZING shells, the size and beauty of which we’d never seen at our local beach. Our haul was so large and wonderous that I’ll be devoting an entire post to it later this week, but among the largest of the shells was this beautiful specimen.
This was another favourite. A gorgeous enormous sea snail shell.
Sorry these photos are a little out of focus. R was so excited, running along the shore making discoveries. I didn’t want to ask him to stand still so I could take photos. These snaps are the best I could manage. It was a beautiful afternoon and definitely helped us unwind from our hectic week.
How was your week? What discoveries did you make?
