The Greatest Love Story

The Greatest Love Story. - www.mommakingmemories.comI have to start off by saying that although we love the atmosphere of the festive season, we don’t do Christmas… or Easter. In our opinion (it may be different than yours, I realize that and respect your opinion) it is man-made celebrations to make money and keep our eyes off the bigger picture. The Tooth Fairy and Halloween is also not welcome in our house, together with Valentine’s day, Mother’s day and Father’s day. Continue reading The Greatest Love Story

My father’s parents lived in a small little town. As far as I remember they lived in a one bedroom retirement house. It had a small open plan kitchen, a lounge, a short hallway with photos on the wall, a bathroom and a bedroom. Continue reading Thinking back… my father’s parents

Happily ever after

happily ever after

I want to tell you a story.

Unlike other fairytales there isn’t a princess, knight, dragon, witch or magic… but there is a boy and a girl, life’s troubles and true Love.

Once upon a time there was a girl, not a princess, not a servant, just a normal everyday girl. Continue reading Happily ever after
