weekend love

Wow, it's been a while since I did a weekend love post. Not intentional at all. I like to wrap up the week on a Sunday {or Monday} night with a love post. Emotionally, I am not really up for blogging tonight, but perhaps I need some normal tonight, after a very irregular week. Irregular in the sense of wonderful to the extreme, right through to downright heartbreaking.

:: My family flew in to help celebrate a very special birthday party;
:: Tim came and created some magic, that I will forever treasure and be grateful for (thankyou Tim);
:: we celebrated our beautiful baby boy's impending first birthday (this Thursday);
:: caught up with some dear, dear friends with champagne and laughs, and it was good, so good;
:: we celebrated again for my almost-bro-in-law's impending birthday (today ~ happy birthday Carlos! xx);
:: woke Sunday morning to realise I forgot to put myself first on the one day I planned to, had to, needed to;
:: gave myself a hell of a headache from the tears that followed said realisation, together with crossing the finish line of a crazy, hellish week;
:: enjoyed a day with my boys, big and little, while my girl had a day with her nanna and pa;
:: enjoyed said day by taking both {badly needed} daytime naps ~ morning nap with the Small, and afternoon with Small and Middle {bliss};
:: was given disrespectful, hurtful parenting advice by someone close to me, who has no children;
:: had to say goodbye to my family again today when they flew home, two states away.

I'm exhausted. Which could mean one of two things. I will be here a lot this week, emptying my head, or I might just be calling in to say hi briefly, and spending some time with my couch and idiot box, or the sandman.

Whatever my week has in store, I hope yours is wonderful. x


  1. Oh lovely, these photos are beautiful - and I saw your sneak peek over at Tim's blog. What wonderful memories you have captured this weekend.

    I'm sorry that you are feeling a little fragile - hopefully you manage to sneak some more naps this week and start to feel a little better. Thinking of you. xx

  2. you *have* had a roller coaster of a week. i have been feeling like shit too, for the last few days. for no apparent reason. you obviously have a few legit reasons there! i got annoyed today when someone put the toilet roll on the wrong way {i like it to roll outwards} legit reasons here! just good ol cranky pants. tomorrow is a new day. sending love and hugs xxx

  3. What a great/awful weekend! Yay for Tim pics! He captured your family gorgeously! And no no no to yucky parenting advice from non-parents. Don't upset mama bear - she'll open a can of whoopass!!!
    Hope you have a super week xxxx

  5. Wow Tahnee, you have the most beautiful family. These photos are so beautiful and I cannot wait to see what Tim has.
    What a full on weekend, not to mention, I imagine a lot of activities and preparation during the week before.
    Be kind to yourself this week. Take it easy. I hope you get some more naps in and you put yourself first.
    We'll see you when we see you. xo
