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!

  • Each time our toes feel the cool sand & our ears hear the crash of the wild Atlantic waves, we are reminded of the journey we have been on to get here.  Finding ourselves in a place that absolutely feels like home & watching as our little girl runs free on the beach, fills our hearts more than we ever could have imagined.  Yet beside this feeling of wholeness, we know our journey has many more chapters to come which makes us appreciate each day we get to spend here, close to the sea. Each time the sun warms my face, I soak it in, I breathe in the salty air & try now, more than ever to live in the moment. Each day is a gift & each time Story laughs, I know we done something right. This is now & this is our happy 🌊

  • The last few weeks getting to know our new home has felt like paradise, perfect sunshine everyday. But when the spring rains finally did come to visit, they painted the most beautiful rainbow 🌈 in the sky for us all to enjoy.
It was gone so quickly but for a brief moment we all stopped what we were doing to watch it come and go. A fleeting moment.
Thank goodness for smartphones and digital cameras always at the ready to cement these snippets of time into beautiful pictures and videos to enjoy in years to come.

  • We’re home! After all the anxiety and doubt it’s all come together and we have a place to live again.
And by live, I really mean live. Story absolutely loves looking after the chickens and chasing them into their beds every evening while laughing her little lungs out. It is so heart warming to watch.
And our new neighbors are legendary! A Portuguese family that live on the next farm. They really look after us and share their knowledge of the land every day. Story has wormed her way into their hearts too and because of her love of the chickens they went out and got 16 more 😂 8 of whom are baby chicks 🐤
We couldn’t be happier. There is so much to enjoy at home it makes it difficult to go out 🤗
Now... who’s going to be our first visitor? 😉P.S There’s a donkey down the street too 😂

  • The last few days have been so surreal. Almost dreamlike.
With skies so blue it hurts your eyes and temperatures just warm enough to feel comfortable bare foot on the clean sandy beaches.
As many of you know we are transitioning between houses right now as we move from central Portugal to a new location nearer the coast. And Story has absolutely loved it!
We were worrying a little that she may be reluctant to leave the old house. But there’s something we’ve noticed about Story, she can be happy anywhere, and the unknown doesn’t seem to concern her.
We are about to embark on a brand new journey in our lives and we believe this chapter is going to be full of joy, happiness and wonderfully rewarding moments to make into memories.

  • Goodbye old home 🏡 Swipe the photo to see the day we arrived 8 months pregnant with an unnamed bump. A whole lot of unknowns ahead of us, but with hearts full of excitement for  the most pivotal chapter in our lives.
Then see us as we are now, with a whole new ‘Story’ and ready to turn the pages of change once more.
Story Ember El-Haj is now 28 months of age. Full of personality and an absolute highlight of our daily life. We are moving south to a new home, where there will be so much more fun to share with the world.
Moving forward and big change is never easy. But we are feeling so positive about this new chapter in our story, that it is making the transition so much easier.
We hope you’re just as excited as we are for what is about to come!
Wish us luck.

  • This little girl is always happiest playing in puddles! Winter or summer, England or Portugal ☺️
Story covered up her pretty dress, and took full advantage of her water resistant suit on our last little day trip into Coimbra.
When do kids lose interest in puddles 😂?

  • We’ve had some amazingly sunny days recently. Warm enough for me to be on a mountaintop in a dress!
Portugal’s winter has been quite mild this year for which we are very grateful 😋
And those classic deep blue skies that we’ll always associate with this country were just begging us to do a little photoshoot with #storyember so we took full advantage.
What’s the weather like where you are right now? 😌
