Brighton Forever

So the sun is slowly making an appearance and our Instagram is taking a sunny turn. Phones and cameras are coming out and so are the smiles.


Last month, on this particular sunny day, the seafront was teaming with people enjoying the sunshine, grabbing a beer. I had a feeling those afternoon parties were going to last well into the evening. I don’t often miss my free and single days, before kids but for a split second I envied that freedom. I’m not at all wishing these early years of motherhood away, it just reminded me of a different time.
