Living Arrows – 16/52 {2017}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I am loving how many people have decided to make Living Arrows a part of their blogging routine for 2017, it is so lovely to have you all here. It’s definitely one of my favourite parts of each week!

If you haven’t joined in with Living Arrows before it’s is about celebrating childhood. The project originally took it’s 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.

Each week I share two pictures from our week – one of each of our children – but you can share one or more pictures that capture a moment of childhood. The following week I’ll share my three favourite photos from the week before, linking back to the owner’s blogs.

So if you would like to link up, grab a badge and post around a photo of childhood from the previous week. I look forward to reading your posts and make sure you visit a few of the other posts that have linked up and leave a comment too!

Here are a few of my favourite photos from last week:

Little Ladies Big World

Life at Cooks Cabin

The Mama Story

This week’s photos were taken on our holiday last week. It was such a lovely break and I had so many photos to choose from. This one of Little Man was taken in front of a random wall of street art. It wasn’t at all in keeping with the local area but I loved the backdrop it made.

LP’s photo was obviously taken in the pool. She refused to go in the pool – getting brave and jumping in and then getting out just as fast as it was pretty cold! But, by halfway through the week she was happy to float around on the donut, knowing that she wouldn’t fall in.

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week. If I thought a lot of people joined in for the first week then I was amazed at the amount that joined last week! I’m going to keep commenting on all of the posts that link up and sharing my favourite photos each week. Thanks so much for taking part and for adding to this great little community we’re creating – make sure to go and comment on a few other posts at some point during the week too.

  1. Hope you all had a lovely holiday. Hadn’t heard of James Villas before your posts, will certainly be looking at what they have for our next break as yours looked ideal for a hassle-free family holiday. Love the graffiti backdrop, Troy looks like an absolute dude x

  2. They are such lovely photos. I’m glad she ended up enjoying time on the pool, it’s my favourite thing about being on holiday.
