"A portrait of my daughter once a week, every week in 2014" 
Phuket, Thailand
Lottie Cakes: The best cure for a busted lip at the pier, or anywhere for that matter, a delicious Icy Pole and a daddy cuddle. You were so brave little one and your battle wounds so far on this adventure have proven your not wasting any time or worry in having the time of your life. Busted Lips, Bruised and Scratched Knees, the sprinkling of freckles appearing on your little sun kissed nose.

Our days have slowed drastically. Mornings that begin with cuddles, fresh fruit and swims. Afternoons of beers, juices and siestas. Evenings of strolls, fresh seafood and the buzz of Island life. Spending every day, all day together dancing to silly music, never having to tell you to hold on while other duties of life beckon, because the only duties there are now are enjoying each other and our surroundings.

You are a little superstar with your ginger locks, like you have always been when we're visiting Asian countries. Yesterday a group of tourists bombarded you as you were trying to wheel your little suitcase up the hill. They knocked you over and picked you back up to circle around you with peace signs held high and cameras snapping. You handled it like a trooper, posing like this was the norm and looking towards me until I came over and swooped you away from the swarm. Absolute Madness.

Linking up with Practising Simplicity and Living Arrows.

  1. I can only begin to imagine what a novelty her red hair is in Thailand and it is so stunning too. I hope she appreciates it when she is older. :-)

    1. Thanks Clare! I know, me too! My fear is she'll hit the teens and dye it in an act of rebellion, hehe :) X
