There is a crack in everything………..

I was so sad to hear to of the death of Leonard Cohen last week. Not because I particularly loved his music, but because he had some fantastic quotes attributed to him. Therefore, I felt it was fitting that I should choose one of his this week. This one is my favourite `Leonard` quotes. Let us all embrace our cracks instead of trying to paper over them or worse, hide them completely. Lets.. Read More

Dear Ellie

Dear Ellie*, You have never been afraid to travel and have been taking yourself off, all over Europe, for a while now. Therefore, we were not at all surprised when you said you wanted to head for pastures new this summer – good for you lovely! You have been away for four weeks now on your American adventure. We are beginning to really miss you but know that you are making the most of.. Read More

My Monday Quote!

My Monday Quote this week is dedicated to our daughter who is spending the summer in New Jersey. As she begins this adventure, she is definitely out of her comfort zone. I used to fear leaving my comfort zone and sometimes still do. All sorts of random things make me anxious. Sometimes, I feel I need to go somewhere unfamiliar and maybe do something I have never done before to feel alive. To feel as though I am.. Read More

Himself and Myself consider this to be one of the best quotes ever!! Our eldest daughter is spending the summer in New York. She has been actively encouraged by us to do so. She is currently employed as a counsellor on a summer camp for children with special needs. Whenever I am having a moment,  like yesterday when I looked at the globe and realised how far away she actually is, this quote.. Read More

  Life has dealt us one of those curve balls, the sort that forces you to stop and take stock. This quote resonates with me this week. I have  decided to cling to the hope that this storm will not only pass, but it has been sent for a number of reasons. Maybe I had become complacent and there are a number of things I need to be reminded of; For example, good.. Read More

I am sure if you visit here regularly you will know that we are massive Disney fans in this house. We have been to Florida and Paris many times in search of all things Mickey. My Captured Moments are often photographs from those holidays. Therefore, we are very excited to be going to Disney On Ice at The Echo Arena, Liverpool on Wednesday evening. We cannot wait and this outing might have influenced my.. Read More

Given that it was Mother’s Day here yesterday, I have gone with a parenting quote this week. Although, many of my quotes are about my being a parent, it is my most important job after all, I often steer clear from overtly making reference to it. This is because I know my parenting skills are somewhat limited. I will never give advice because in truth, I lunge from one crisis to another. I found.. Read More

We make no secret of the big part that Jack, our black lab, plays in our lives. Our weekends revolve around where we are going to take him and quite right too, we work all week.     However, when I saw a variation of this quote recently, it made me stop and think. Of course, we are everything to him. While visitors come and go, usually after making a fuss of him,.. Read More

I have to admit, I am not a lover of St Valentine’s Day -see what I did there ha! I always claim that `we don’t do Valentine’s day`. However one year,  Himself gently pointed out that while I don’t do it, actually he does – doh!   However, I am a lover of this quote from Anthony Robbins. It is such fantastic advice, it  certainly stopped me in my tracks and made me.. Read More

Today Into The Glade is 1. To celebrate, I am re-posting the quote that was, and continues to be, my inspiration. I had been reading blogs for years, lifestyle, photography, cooking, baking, parenting, it didn’t matter, I loved them all! After a particularly tricky time, I saw this quote and thought about it a lot. The eldest had recently left for university and was clearly missing home, we were missing her and trying to adjust..
