Living Arrows

Living Arrows is a weekly linky celebrating childhood. The project originally took its name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and every Monday we share a moment from our week and invite others to do the same as part of this linky. Here are all the posts so far in the series.

LP is proving to be incredibly cheeky and loves to put anything on her head. This photo not only captures this ‘phase’ of hers perfectly but also how amazing her imagination is. Why would you put a bin on your head? Because you’re two and…


Living Arrows – 2/52

I’m hoping that over the course of Living Arrows this year I’ll be able to capture my children’s personalities in photos and watch them grow week by week. This week, as will often be the case, I’ve chosen a photo of each child rather than one of them both together – Photos of both of them are very hard to take at the moment due to Little Man’s age and…


Living Arrows – 1/52

This is my first time joining in with Living Arrows and I hope to continue it all year to document our children growing. Some weeks I’ll do a photo of both children together, other weeks it will be two photos, one of Little Pickle and one of Little Man.
