You are such a ray of sunshine and its obvious that she gets that from her mama!

  • julia - Oh my goodness, I love this so much, Kirsty!! Those images of your Saffy are SO fun, so full of joy and light – they put an instant smile on my face. Your letter makes me feel like I know her, and what a wonderful girl she is :)

  • jess - love these images, kirsty! they totally capture here and i love how fun and vibrant they are. i think it is so important to document all the little things about our girls…the things that make them who they are. feeling inspired to write down more of them more often!

  • Jody - I was grinning from ear-to-ear as I was reading about your sweet and spunky Saffy. I love that age when anything and everything is possible and there is so much joy to look forward to.

  • Amy Lucy Lockheart - Oh sweet Saffy! So much like her Mama! I can just see the two of you having so much fun together over the years doing so many creative projects and living life to the fullest. Yes, she was made for you Kirsty. A perfect match! This is a beautiful letter and I love her sweet smile in the photos! xoxo

  • Sarah Clayton - So very beautiful Kirsty. Something for you all to treasure as the girls grow. Brought tears to my eyes xx

  • Rashmi - Kirsty.. I am literally grinning ear to ear.. you describe SIX so well, especially your saffy’s SIX. Oh my.. so much energy… so much get up and go.. what a beautiful beautiful age. You will treasure this forever… we forget the little things so quickly and this will be a wonderful reminder of her six year old whirlwind energy!

  • Kate Pizzo - I don’t know how you do it, not only are you creating a keepsake for you and your girls but you are really putting yourself out there. So hold. I love it, your words one from the heart and really are amazing. Miss Saffy is just gorgeous too! Xo

  • Emma Wood - Kirsty, your words are beautiful and your images are inspiring. You seemed to have managed to capture so many different parts of your sweet Saffys personality. She’s such a little sweetheart and honestly reminds me so much of my little 6yr old. Loved reading this, and having this special peek into your life with your darling girl.

Sometimes it’s a refreshing change from my real life to get to run around after 2 happy, spirited little boys… Big brother is great friends with my Indy – can you imagine the fun their class teacher has with these two cheeky smilers!! I shared some of their pics over on Facebook – they had […]
