Living Arrows – 52/52 {2020}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows – and the last one of the year! I love this project, I’ve been doing it for so many years now and it’s always nice seeing who links up and watching children and families grow throughout the year – and what a strange year it has been.

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. There’s a little change from next year, where each week I’ll share my favourite photo that has been linked up from the week before, linking back to the owner’s blogs. As a little tip, I only really feature landscape photos – and very occasionally square photos and I’ll never feature the same blogger’s photos two weeks in a row.

Happy New Year to everyone that has joined in with Living Arrows this year – I’m full of hope that 2021 is a little brighter for all of us.

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:

This Glorious Life

Mudpie Fridays

My Sentimental Jamboree

This week’s photos were taken on Christmas Eve, on a trip to a local country park and one of the only times we’ve ventured out since we were put back in lockdown a few days before Christmas.

I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week and seeing the photos you share to finish off the year. If you link up make sure to go and read some of the other posts and I’ll be commenting and sharing them through the course of the week. Thanks so much for taking part – see you again next week!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  2. Thank you for hosting another year of Living Arrows. I haven’t decided if I’m going to continue this year or not. Finding it harder to get photos each week, as we’re not doing anything! I might join in monthly instead x

  3. I’m so glad you’ve decided to carry on for another year. I can’t imagine life without Living Arrows! Hope you had a good Christmas and New Year x
