Living Arrows – 9/52 – and a New Host!

Hayley has been running Living Arrows for a couple of years now and there are so many people that love linking up each week but with Hayley’s photography business she hasn’t been able to dedicate as much time as she would like to her blog and because of this she has decided to stop hosting Living Arrows – and I’ve agreed to take over.

Living Arrows is about celebrating childhood. The project originally took itโ€™s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, โ€œYou are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forthโ€ and every Monday we have been sharing 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!

Living Arrows

Over the weekend we stayed at a hotel and both the children loved a couple of hours of relaxing before dinner. LP loves using apps on our phones or her tablet and this photo was taken when she snuck off to her bed, with her cuddly toys and dolly, to play a game by herself.

Little Man loved the down time too but instead of apps he had the TV to keep him amused – but equally surrounded by cuddly toys!

    Thank you for hosting! I’ve only started to join in with living arrows this year so would be really sad to see it go! Lovely photos of your two both in their own little worlds. x

      I think we need time away from hotels for a while – we’re all exhausted! x

    Sad that Hayley’s stopped, but makes sense to transfer it. Loving the new badge, and look forward to any new additions (although I prefer it the original way with only one picture rather than lots, although some people have been adding more photos).

      It won’t change any more than this ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve always done two photos just so I didn’t have to choose between the kids but love everyone else sharing one statement photo from the week. Thanks for always joining in Emma x

    Thanks for taking over as host, I love this linky and I would have been sad to see it go. It really makes me think about getting a nice portrait every week of my daughter.

    They look so cosy curled up with their soft toys! I’ve just discovered Living Arrows through your blog, so I’m glad to be able to join in! x
