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!

  • 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 😜

  • These two 💕 As different as the sun is to the moon yet I have a feeling they are going to form a strong bond as they grow. Dipping into each other's orbit, learning, teaching & inspiring with each encounter. Already they have had 3 holidays together, where shall the next one be @fathergoodofficial ?! #cousinlove #daughters #growingafamily #beachbabes #storyember #leonieadelita
  • Dancing in cafes, picking flowers & doing ‘run run’ through the streets of Albufeira, just some of Story’s adventures in this weeks weekend vlog. We loved our time spent in the Algarve with family 😊 To unlock the extra weekend videos, click link in bio ☝🏻#algarveportugal #storyember #familyvloggers
  • If we lived in Vilamoura, this would be our favourite ‘go to’ beach. It’s not the most spectacular beach in the Algarve by a long shot, but it has a beautiful charm to it that would be perfect for long dog walks and sunset picnics 😊

  • Story & her BFF Uncle Tams, cosy on the sofa. Story is at such a lovely age right now & seeing her interacting, having little chats, sharing lunches & announcing ‘Oh its Tam’ with a little giggle each time he walked into the room made us smile.  Capturing sweet moments like this makes our ❤️ melt! #storyember #familyholiday #bonding #uncle #niece
  • Can still feel that beautiful Algarve sun ☀️What a fantastic place to create new memories with our girls. Can’t wait to meet the new little one Chelle is cradling in her tummy 💕 .
