JANUARY PHOTO A DAY | DAY THIRTY ONE


PHOTO A DAY PROJECT | A personal project for an entire month taking one photo a day of my children.

Today is the last day of January 2015 when you are eight, your brother is five, your eldest sister celebrated her engagement, and you were spoilt by your big sister with a Wii for Christmas. It was the month where you mastered the art of surfing, ate ice cream, walked on the beach a LOT.

Today we enjoyed the last day of January with beautiful friends in the timbered county of Monbulk. There was a bonfire, an abundance of fruit crumble for dessert, a fruit orchard, and vegetable beds that went on forever. You were fascinated with the fire despite the smoke stinging your eyes. Hours were spent stoking the fire, burning sticks and grass, and being mesmerised by the hot, licking flames.

After a warm bath and a back rub, you murmured as you drifted off to sleep, that you could still smell the fire in your pajamas, and today was a day to remember.

I'm so glad, because I will never forget it either.
