And just like that another month passes us by... and it's crazy to think that in another month we will be half way through the year. Where on earth does the time go?

After all the excitement and adventure of last month, May has been all about home. We've been cracking on with DIY projects at home, both in the house and in the garden; it's been busy and tiring at times, but it's so satisfying to be turning this house into a home that feels like us. So this month's photos are especially exciting, but they do reflect what our month has been like; at home, in the garden, together... and with Quinn stealing the show at every opportunity!

I can't wait to see what you all have to share this month, and make sure you pop by my cohosts (Alex, Charlotte, Fritha, Jenny, Katie and Lucy) to see what they've been up to this month too.

The Me and Mine Project


  1. Ah little Quinny is so cute, its such a fun age. She definitely steals the show in these. It's fun making a house a home and putting your stamp on it. I've been doing the same over the last few months in our new house and its very satisfying. x

  2. Sounds like a perfect month of rest after a beautiful time in Dubai x

  3. I can't believe that we are almost half way through the year. Thats so crazy!! Its flown by. Lovely pictures this month, as always x

  4. Oh Lucy these are absolutely beautiful and I love that you took them in your new garden at home. Such a beautiful place and where so many memories are being made and will be made here. Your outfits coordinating and matching so perfectly too. I try to get us do that somehow one of us spills something or changes before photos are taken or we all have coats on. Can't wait for summer and try a bit more fun summery coordinating shots like this so lovely. Your dress is gorgeous on you!!! Look at Everly too in that dress she looks so grown up I can't believe it. Glad you had such a great time in Dubai thanks for sharing it with all of us too. We can't wait to go next year for Paul's birthday! Always hard to come down after a grand holiday but good to make the most of it chilling at home with family.
