Today my darling girl and I had a special day🙋🏻♀️👧🏻. My mother used to take me out for special days growing up and it was the most special time. ✨Olivia has given us such a clear picture of toddlerhood and it’s stretching😬. Lots of challenging moments as she is learning and we are learning. I am daily humbled and at the feet of Jesus praying for guidance.✨. I’m so very thankful for days like today that we got to just focus on one another, laugh, sing, dance, eat and relax together. She is my joy!🌟 #encouragingmama#shesmyworld#specialdays#toddlerhood#motherhood#mothering#christmastime
Best day of 2018.
My year was studded with great days.
I don't want to decide on one best day.
Best days are about spending time with loved ones.
These are moments, not days that stick in my memory.
This photo is back from August, when I spent a hot summer's day wih my childhood best friend and soul sister @_hochdietassen_. Sipping cool drinks by the lake side, dipping, chatting, catching up. I don't spend enough time with her... Other great days were:
Snow days with the children.
Solitudal hiking days and being met by friends for a meal and a sleep out at the beach.
Camping trips with friends and family.
10th wedding anniversary day in town during the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh with Mr B.
Summer days with my brother.
Hiking with a group of great women and friends. #wanderwomen
Spending some time my first UK family in St Albans in March.
Spending time with extended family.
And so many more very special days and moments.
12 Special Days of Christmas 🎅🎄⏲️ - Day 4 "Myself and my wife married in 2016 and almost immediately after I was diagnosed with bowel cancer. Life changed immediately and the next three years were full of operations, treatment and appointments. There have been times it has been overwhelming and I find myself asking why me.
My Special Day was the opportunity for us to do something we had never done before and to feel, even if it was just for the day, that my illness was not the main thing in life."
12 Special Days of Christmas 🎅🎄⏲️ - Day 3 "My Special Day made a huge difference to us all, we had some quality time together, just the four of us, where we could put cancer to the back of our minds, enjoy life and remember how to smile again."

. "My diagnosis was devastating to my whole family. Treatment was tough and when I lost my hair I lost me confidence too.
My Special Day gave me the new focus and distraction that was needed. Being out in the fresh air away from all of the hospital appointments gave us all the opportunity to forget our current situation.
Our weekend away gave us memories that we will cherish forever."
The countdown to Christmas day begins. 🎅🎄⏲️ From now until then, we will be sharing '12 Special Days of Christmas' with you. Each day we'll take a quick look at some of the amazing Special Days which you have helped us create throughout this incredible year. 💜
Without your tremendous support, we simply couldn’t do what we do. We can't wait to create more Special Days together in 2019. 🙏
We kick things off with a #SpecialDay that was extra special, read on to find out more. 💍
. "Before my diagnosis my life was quite average, I had a standard job in retail and was saving money to buy a house.
I was so excited to go to Port Lympne as that particular zoo is my happy place. It will forever be in my heart as my boyfriend Andy proposed to me at sunset in the giraffe lodge looking out over the zoo. It was so perfect and we had the most amazing time.
My Special Day gave me the confidence to go out and enjoy myself and to show me there is more to life than just hospitals."
