Breakfast time

The sun has finally come out and breakfast is my favourite time of the day. We have a North facing garden so we have to grab the sunshine when we can and 6.30am is the perfect time to catch the sun [one of the few bonuses of having a toddler who wakes at 5.30!!].

The garden is constantly evolving - we have added a pond where 2 frogs have decided to take up residence, Noah has a large play area which is brilliant when friends visit, and an under-used chimanea keeps us warm late into the evening.

This summer I've tried my hand at growing sweet peas for the first time. I stuff them in jam jars and sit them on the kitchen window-sill, a wonderful reminder of the heady smells of summer.

Where do you eat your breakfast in the summer? And what does your garden look like this time of year?

This is such a cute idea from Pinterest - the idea is to do a new picture every year and see how your kids like and dislikes change.

A similar idea I have seen is to ask them a list of questions on their birthdays, and again keep a record of how their answers change over the years.

How do you keep a record for your kids?

Menorca - Travel Files

It has been a busy few weeks. I've been taking part in Blogging your Way 2.0 with Holly Becker of Decor8. I've learnt so much again from the brilliant teachers including Katrina Tan, Jeanette Lunde, and Nicole Balch. The possibilities in blogging are endless and I'm just at the beginning - feel very much like a beginner compared to these super talented ladies!

I've been over at Simple Style Notebook with updates on our recent holiday, and even doing my first guest post at The Marin Scoop. Phew, lots going on so sorry it's been a while since I updated here on Karma. 

I really wanted to share some of my holiday snaps. The layouts are inspired by Leslie at A Creative Mint. Her travel pictures are always beautifully designed. We spent a wonderful week in Menorca, and came back to more rain in England. 

Are you off anywhere nice this summer? Hope the sun is shining wherever you are.
