Starting Halloween Traditions with a Halloween Themed Bake Off

So, as you may be aware, Halloween is right around the corner, and for us, we’ve chosen to ‘celebrate’ it the Sunday before.

For me and Rachel, starting family traditions is going to be very important to us. We love the idea of doing something as a family for all the occasions that you come across during the year. We’ll have some sort of egg hunt for Easter, a Christmas Eve box for Christmas, a fancy dinner for Thanksgiving (I know we’re not American so don’t say it) and heck, I even fancy doing something for all the random ones like St. Patrick’s day, St. David’s day, Independence Day and anything else that comes along.

And most importantly, it’s something that I feel I can genuinely help people with. I’m not sure whether that’s actually true, and maybe all my advice…

It was one of the things that kick started my recovery from postnatal depression, and it’s something that we’ve tried to do on a semi-regular basis. Even if it is only for two nights like this was. But going away together as a family is a great way to get away from all the distractions and focus on the three of us.

Isablog #9 – Enjoying the Little Things

As you’re probably already aware yourself, it’s starting to get a little colder and a little darker. I try to find enjoyment in all the seasons we’re graced with in the UK, but what I love most when it starts to get like this is something very simple. Candles. I don’t care about the ones that smell nice, or colourful ones or anything silly like that. I just love the light. Don’t get me wrong, you can light candles in the summer, or even buy a lamp for the winter. But we’re in bed by 9pm pretty much every night as…
