We said goodbye to Tibberton House ..
…And hello to Churchend Farm …
It was a stressful move, but the whole family is happier here. Even the dogs, who can bark to their hearts content and spend their time chasing squirrels all day long ;).
After the move, I decided to take some much needed inspiration from an old friend, Dave , and start a 365 day challenge – taking pictures every day. For a year.
Which will be good for me, because I really don’t take pictures as often as I’d like to, and I have so many ideas and concepts for shoots in my head that I never actually get around to taking. So hopefully this will force me into it :).

Every move involves lots of work. Lizzie and I always get assigned really fun chores… Like pressure hosing tiles :| … Except I decided to take pictures instead of actually take part, and eventually Lovis ended up doing all the work (thanks Lovis). haha.

This was the day that I decided to assign myself a photography challenge which took me almost all day. This is a whole other blog post on its own. Look out for it, I will be posting it soon.
Until then, enjoy this awesome texture I found on the inside of one of our barns.

This is a photograph taken on the farm behind us. Rex and I decided to be rebels and trespass for the sake of some beautiful pictures. We thought that if we walked far enough we’d find the river, but we were wrong haha.

For those of you who don’t know, Lizzie is my inspiration. She is beautiful both inside and out, and is my best friend. I love her to death.

Toby and Princess bring so much joy to my entire family. Life without them would be bleak.

I woke up at 5 am and, no matter how hard I tried, I could not go back to sleep. So I grabbed my camera and enjoyed the sunrise.

Before dinner, Lizzie and I thought it would be a great idea to go apple picking…. After our trek over the fence and through stinging nettle, we realised that unfortunately the apples were not ripe haha. So we picked two and left the rest on the tree. We found this hilarious.

This photo comes with a story. For those of you who don’t know, my family moves a lot. The thing with moving, is that each time we unpack at a new place, we find all of our old stuff. My mom calls these things junk, but there are some things which, despite my mom’s efforts, I just cannot throw away. The photo below falls into that category. It is a picture of a necklace which (according to Lizzie) I received as a gift in Venezuela. All I can remember about this necklace is that I LOVED it. It was my prized possession. When I found the necklace, I decided to wear it for old times’ sake. Lizzie came up to me and gave me this long story about how much she loved the necklace as a child, and how she used to be so jealous of it. Apparently she always tried to convince me to lend it to her, and I never did. Years have passed, and now, looking at the necklace, we don’t see what was so special about it to begin with, and that’s exactly what makes it special now.
That’s all for now. Hope you enjoyed the photos :).
