Dear Lola and Maeve,

The doors were flung open first thing in the morning. We couldn't decide on t-shirts or long sleeve shirts. We spent time by the water getting our toes wet, all the while wishing we'd packed swimmers so we could dive right in. We ate every meal outside, basking in the sun. 
With a little over a month till Spring, we can already feel it in the air.  

We spent Saturday afternoon in the yard. Watering cans in hand, chasing chooks, before settling down by the chiminea. We roasted apples, ate cheese, watched Lola dance, and Maeve's brave attempts to climb every wall in sight, and steal a taste of our wine.

It was a peaceful weekend. A real taste of the warmer, sunshine soaked days to come.

Dear Lola & Maeve,

I'm relishing the days spent with my almost four year old and almost one year old.

Lola you flutter about the house, always on tip toe, with a look of purpose & excitement spread across your peach cheeked face. Playing contently by yourself and begging I join in, in equal measure. You are so happy & helpful.

Maeve, you cruise around the place having perfected crawling. You pull yourself up onto everything, often forgetting yourself and releasing your grip to clap. You are so charming and curious.

Our days are wide and long, full of adventure outside the home and in. Each day has its wild moments, but for the most part they are just lovely.

Your mama

Dear Lola & Maeve,

It's just no fun at all sitting behind a big pane of glass watching the wind from inside.

I almost forgot how fun it is to race around, twirl and get caught up in a blustery day. Especially fun with my little cuddly bear and rainbow bright by my side. 

Your mama
