Living Arrows 41/53 {2018}

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

by Kahlil Gibran


What makes me laugh the most when I see this photo of Holly, is that it reminds me that she calls the carousel, a roundabout with horses on it. I couldn’t love her more and I want to treasure these things that she comes out with, as I know she is growing up way too fast.

Alice was in a funny mood, otherwise known as the ‘Alice Mood’ and she didn’t want to go on the carousel, even though we asked her a million times. Holly went on, it started and immediately she said I do want to go on it! This meant her having to wait and go on the next turn. As it turned out she ended up with an exclusive ride, all to herself.

    Looks like they had a great time despite the Alice mood!

    These are such gorgeous photos! I have to admit though, the Alice mood sounds quite familiar, it sounds like something I would’ve done as a child! x #LivingArrows

    They both look so happy, even if it took Alice a little while to warm up to the idea! I love her outfit too 🙂 #LivingArrows

    Oh I love a carousel although I wont be able to look at another now without thinking its a roundabout with horses on it! Monkey gets into moods like that too. I wonder if its their age? xx

    Even with the ‘alice Mood’ they both look like they are enjoying the ride.
