‘Show you were there’ round up

It’s Sunday morning, and that can only mean one thing.

Time for another round up from my little Instagram community #ShowYouWereThere.

My first pick is from Amy at The Smallest of Things.

I love that this photo captures a moment and a memory that means so much to Amy and her family.  And seeing this photo has reminded me that we have some lovely big kites that we should take out and let loose on the beach one day soon!


Next up is this fab summery shot from Amy at Very Much So.

It feels like another lovely moment captured, and I just really love how Amy’s dress seems to match the flowers so perfectly!


There’s a distinctly summery vibe in my third pick too, from Donna at What the Redhead Said.

I’ve never been to Hurst Castle but it sounds like such a lovely day out, and I love this father/daughter moment that Donna captured on their way there.


My last pick for this time is from Rachel at Mini and Mabel.

I just really love how the gorgeous, tall houses make Jude seem so small but he’s still so easy to spot in the scene in his yellow coat!


Thank you so much to everyone who is using #ShowYouWereThere, I love seeing your photos popping up over on Instagram, they always make me smile so much.


Now my turn.

I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness recently, and how so many times in the past I’ve held back a bit and been almost afraid to let myself feel truly happy.  I’m trying to be more aware of times when I might do this, and looking out for opportunities to just have fun and let more joy into my day.

Last week one of those opportunities came up as Nerys and I stopped off at the park on our way home from school one day.  For the first time in years I hopped on one of the swings and had a go, and it was silly and it was fun and it was great to just really relax and feel completely happy in that moment, swinging up high while my daughter played on the slide.

When did you last join in and play at the park?


If you’d like to join in with my little community and possibly be featured in my next round up (with a nice link back to your blog!) then just share a photo of yourself over on instagram using #ShowYouWereThere.  It’s all about getting more parents in more photos.  And if you’d like to take part in my guest post series ‘The photo I’m thankful for‘ then take a look at this post or email me at thisgloriouslife@gmail.com for more information.
