Me & Mine is all about recording your whole family.
Most of us are guilty of snapping away and getting photos of the children,
but we rarely remember to get in them ourselves.
This project isn't about the perfect photo,
it's about capturing our families right now,
so that we can look back at them in years to come.

Every month on the final day of the month,
seven bloggers send you around in a circle,
to see what that month held for each family.
But this project isn't just about us seven,
it's about capturing your memories too.
So there is a linky hosted on each of our blogs
meaning that you can join in and share your photos too.

This month I'm linking across to Katie.
Now there isn't much I can say about Katie,
other than she is my wonderful blogging and real life friend.
I love her, her gorgeous little family and her lovely blog
so go and check her out at Mummy Daddy Me if you haven't already.

You've seen Me & Mine,
now we want to see you and yours.

dear beautiful

  2. I have been eyeing up a brick wall with daffodils in front of it, waiting for the daffodils to open, thinking what a lovely backdrop it would make. I then decided the wall was a bit too shabby. Your wall is perfect! :0) Lovely photos! x x

    1. Haha. Not a shabby wall??? I stumbled across this little backdrop by accident. I had planned to take our photos in the local church yard as they have a huge bed full of daffodils, only when we got there they had locked the gates. This was nearby so I decided it would have to do, but actually I think it's nicer than the church yard ones would have been. x

    1. I so glad I managed to get a daffodil picture, they are just so "springy".
      And we LOVE Game of Thrones too. Never stays on our sky planner for very long. x

    1. Thank-you. Her sitting has come on massively in the last month. Should make it far easier to get photos from now on. x

  8. Gorgeous shots of you all - I wish Papasaurus would have his photo taken with us but I know he won't. He's a miserable so and so sometimes.
    Good to hear that the beautiful girl is sleeping better - it makes such a huge difference x

    1. Haha, my hubby is generally pretty grumpy about having these photos done, but he's just learned to give me my own way is far easier. x

  10. Lovely photos as always Lucy and thank you for the lovely introduction! :) I like the idea that at the end of the year you will be able to look back at this one and think it was (hopefully) the start of Spring and Summer. It looks like a very pretty spot. I just love the BG's hoody, I have said that to you before. xx

  12. I'm so glad you started this Lucy, it's fun taking part and great to see how many families are involved now.
    I have one question - how to I add the linky thumbnails to my blog post so it's easy for anyone reading my blog to click into other me and mine posts?

    1. The easiest way for people to find their way back to the linky is add the Me and Mine button to your post. The seven host blogs all share the linky so that everyone else doesn't need to. x

  13. Fantastic project Lucy. I will try and join in next month.

  16. I need to do better at linking with you. I want to so badly. I need to talk to the Mr. about having a better attitude when I pull the camera out lol.
    I love how springy your picture looks.

    1. Ahhh, we'd love to have you joining in. My husbands camera attitude stinks. But he's quickly learning to just give me what I want and the pain is over far sooner. ;) Hehehe.
