Dear Guinevere {2 Years}

Dear Guinevere,

Today we celebrate your 2nd Birthday. I feel like the luckiest Mama in the whole world. You light up my world.  This last year has been so amazing – watching you grow and develop. Your personality shines through. An independent, determined and vibrant soul. Every day you make me smile.

You love dancing and doing gymnastics – you are incredibly nimble! You would eat chocolate banana bread for every meal if I let you. You love reading and constantly want someone to read one with you. You and Betty dog are “as thick as thieves” and I can’t wait to see you grow up together.

You love doing any thing creative – drawing, painting and crafts – you get that from me. You also love being outside and playing in nature. This year we are going to do lots more fun things. Your talking is incredible and I can’t get over how much you can say. I can’t wait to have lots of little conversations with you.

I won’t lie – some days are hard… really hard. Some days it feels like I might go crazy over the contact battles over mealtimes, the constant noise of toddler toys playing their annoying songs and feeling like I never get enough done. But I wouldn’t change it for the world. Those tough days are massively outweighed by the love, laughter and fun.  You definitely know your own mind and with that comes tantrums and mischief! However I remind myself that this shows how you are developing and being an independent, strong woman is great! You can achieve anything that you want to. Always remember that.

Your Daddy and I love you more than you will ever know and this year we are going to do lots of amazing things together.

Here is your 2 year video montage <3

All my love

Hogwarts in The Snow | Harry Potter Studios

So yesterday I went to The Making of Harry Potter at the Warner Bros Studios in London. I went with my best friend and fellow potterhead Keely. This was the second time that I’ve been to the Hogwarts in  the snow and it is truly one of my favourite places. The day was so fantastic and I can’t wait to go back again!

So instead of writing about it here I am sharing a video of the day and also a video from my Snapchat story of the day. Enjoy!!!
