8 Miles From Home. Not 80, Not 800.

But just 8 miles from our home in England, our car broke down and left us stranded. We talked a lot, and decided it was time to get a dog, move abroad, change our jobs and make movies about it… Read the whole story!

  • I can now see how much more we notice around us with little #storyember around. This toddlers eyes lock onto everything and make us stop in our tracks, slow down, and appreciate the world around us even more than we did before.
I’ve seen more leaves 🍁 twigs and mushrooms in the grass and puddles than ever before and I couldn’t have asked for a better child.
Thank you Story for enriching our lives and helping us to appreciate the beauty of this world .

  • Had the most lovely day out with my baby #storyember . What I love most about this little girl is how she can be so easily entertained by the simplest of things right now. Like watching ducks and playing with sticks, hearing her own voice echo by a fountain in a stone room and enjoying an ice cream in the Autumn sunshine.
I hope to spend many more of my days like this. 🤗

  • Story and Eden snuggling in the sunshine today. Probably the coldest day we’ve had for months and it’s about to get Wintery around here!
Story doesn’t often get the chance to ‘cud-on’ Eden (That’s how she says cuddle) because Eden likes her space and tends to dart off but today she was very receptive to a bit of sister love 💕.
Also today we noticed the length of Story’s hair is starting to gather weight and now her ‘Afro curls 😂’ are turning to longer ringlets at the back. In a few more months I reckon she’ll start looking really grown up 😭

  • I fired off a dozen shots of #storyember in the morning light and they are all so cute I honestly didn’t know which ones to delete. So I’m just going to publish loads 😂
This little daughter of ours can be a handful sometimes, but most of the time she delights us both daily. And as stay at home working parents , that we are extremely grateful for 😉

  • Just keep moving forward... With colder times approaching and summer behind us, it’s all too easy to focus on negative thoughts. But let’s not forget all the wonderful things Autumn and Winter will bring! Snowy mountains, warm fireplaces and red wine, cozy blankets and toasty cuddles, hot chocolates and magical misty mornings to name just some.
Watching Story seeking out every puddle to splash in helped us to see things through her perspective. Without the tainted adult angles we are all so accustomed to. There are amazing times to be had in every season. If we just appreciate the tiny moments more.
Thank you Story for just being you. And helping your parents appreciate life as you do.

  • Black and White memories of times past. Only a few weeks ago we were wandering the sands of the Algarve with family. Yet it already feels too long ago. I admit I am feeling the urge to travel more again, the feeling comes in waves, and as soon as we manage a way to finance longer and greater journeys we will definitely be going to see the world with this little wonder we created.
Let’s make the most of this life 😊

  • Where does my little girl store all that cuteness! She seems to have an endless supply of it 😍
Some of it is definitely in those baby cheeks 😗
This was taking during our trip to the Algarve on Praia do trafal. Somebody had left this old boat lying around and Story was clapping with glee to get the chance to sit in it. What a beautiful moment captured that we can keep forever. I love photography!

  • My heart feels warm at the thought of today. Watching my baby girl’s beaming smile as she drank her own cup of Tilia tea in a Portuguese cafe while the adults talked.
She took our friend Lin’s backpack and refused to take it off as she wondered the beautifully ruined backstreets of central Portugal.
We picnicked in the mountains beside old flour grinding mills before heading home in the afternoon light.
Story grabbed handfuls of dark chocolate as she opened gifts from our friends: A green Tractor and a Broom Broom motorbike toy that made her explode with glee for hours onward.
She put on a comical flamenco dress from Barcelona and we went to the regional train station to say farewell to our friends as they headed home after a day of adventures 😊
The part that makes my heart warmest is that this is our normality right now. The fact that a day like this can be arranged without expense or the need to travel for hours or miles.
The choices we are making are building these possibilities, and we can see a happy future for our little girl unfolding before our eyes.
#storyember you are our wonder, and we will do everything in our power to create a world of peace, warmth, love and happiness for you to explore. We love you 😍 .

  • Uncle ‘Tam’ and cousin Leonie have just started up a new Instagram profile - @fathergoodofficial
While with us in the Algarve, Kam told us he wanted to put together a page to inspire fathers out there. To show other prospective dads the joys of fatherhood, and to help current dads to stay focused with support and encouragement.
As a blogger / vlogger myself I see so many mother/mummy pages full of great tips, but fatherhood support is more difficult to come by.
So go show uncle ‘Tam’ some love and follow his new IG profile @fathergoodofficial .
No doubt there’ll be some beautiful Story / Leonie moments shared there as his page grows. 🤗 And don’t forget to leave a comment there to say we sent you 😜
