  We are rocking the selfies this month.
And these are our first proper selfies as part of Me and Mine,
which in a year a half is pretty impressive.
I love going to an effort each month to get us a lovely family portrait,
but selfies were just the perfect option for us this month.
We've been super busy,
good busy,
but busy all the same.
But the main reason I love that we've rocked the selfies this month,
is that they are so full of fun and memories.
I look at them and they are full of stories,
that we can tell the children about when they are older.

This month I'm sending you to visit Katie.
If you're a regular around here
then Katie shouldn't really need an introduction,
she's my blogging and real life bestie.
She's off on her holidays at the moment,
but managed to put a little something together at the last minute before she left
so that she could still join in with us.
So do pop by her blog and say hi.


dear beautiful

  8. The first photo is gorgeous, what a lovely place to go for a break! We usually fall into the selfie category, but not this month *woohoo*

    1. It was such a beautiful spot, it wasn't the easiest place for a Me and Mine photo and I'd have had no hope setting it up with the big camera, so I'm loving that we got a selfie. x

    1. Hahaha, camera on a pole is the trick! It's tough with selfies to get everyone looking the right way (as my children demonstrate) but I think they capture a moment, which is so special. x

  21. Hahaha I love your family selfies, way better than mine! I don't know why my phone photos are more grainy then anyone elses. Must be the amateur photographer in me. lol I love reading your me & mine and what every is loving! Such a beautiful way to document it all. Thanks for hosting my lovely and thank you so much for helping me out while I was on my travels.

    1. Oh I feel I should fess up, I didn't use my phone camera for these selfies, that definitely helps. And thank you, I'm so glad I'm documenting our month in this way, it's such a great record. x

  22. I'm laughing SO much right now because I thought I was prepared this month ready to post TODAY and I now remember that the link posts at the end of the month and NOT the beginning. Hahahaha. I'm so rubbish. Oh well. I think I'd better go and change my post date. So not only have I posted a picture that technically wasn't taken this month I've got the date wrong too!

    I am absolutely loving your selfies - they are fabulous! TC shouts GOAL too - it's the cutest. I hope BG had a lovely first ballet lesson. I bet it was so cute xx

  25. I think you've done well to last this long until you took some selfies. They are great ones too and have made me really want a holiday. The scene behind you on the top looks amazing x

  26. Ahh I think these might be some of my favourites of yours- they are just so natural and spur of the moment, and sometimes thats what you want. You all look like you are having so much fun and sometimes that's captured more in a 'selfie' rather than getting the tripod out and setting everything up. Just lovely! x

  27. Yay to the selfie! Lovely to capture such carefree happy moments xx
