Blog every day in August: Something beautiful

This month I am taking part in Yummy Mummy in Training’s ‘Blog every day in August’ challenge. Read all my posts to date here.

Day 11’s theme is ‘something beautiful’.


Recently, we had a Thanksgiving service for my youngest daughter (nearly ten months old now). We had a similar service for my now nearly three year old, when she was the same age.

Our daughters are lucky enough to have lots of kind and generous friends and supporters who gave them many gifts. One of the most beautiful was from my best friend and their Godmother.

She gave each of them their own tree! I believe they were purchased from a company called Growing Memories. It’s such a great idea- we’ve planted them in huge pots so that should we choose to move house in the future, we can take them with us.

The trees- a Bird Cherry and a Cheery Plum – will grow as they grow, and they are currently thriving in their new pots.

Check out the photos of two-going-on-three-year-old diligently watering each of them!

They also came with a pewter plaque inscribed with a poem by my friend.

A truly beautiful gift.
