Letter to my Daughters – September 2013

I love the other women that make up this project, but one who makes me nod at her wise words, and makes me laugh with her worldly thoughts is Rashmi – I hope I’ll meet her one day, but until that day I’ll just keep reading her blog… head over there now to read this months letter to her girls, Rashmi Pappu | Alexandria VA, Washington DC

Until next month, Kirsty xx

PS these pictures were taken on film back at the beginning of summer – small, still moments of our simple life… they’re far from perfect, just like life, and that’s what makes them perfect for this month…

  • Ginger Unzueta - I love your realness Kirsty, coupled with the optimism. We certainly all face hard days as mamas, as children, as people, but as we look and find the joy, the things to be grateful for within these times, somehow we find the peace we need. What a beautiful example of that this letter is to your girls.

  • Anna-Liisa - Ours has been a grumpy home this month too with lots of exhausted small and big people trying to get used to all the day to day things we have to cram in! Hooray for Eid holiday just round the corner to cheer everyone up! Love the colours in these photos Kirsty, they are very delicate. Xoxo

  • Debbie Wibowo - Oh Kirsty, I giggled reading your letter this month and I love your positive energy in seeing the good during the not so good days. It is the cloudy days and the sunny days that make our world a whole and what make us grow. I am sure that when they grow up and look back on those cloudy days, they would be able to say that your wisdom helped them go through it. …And those pictures are just perfect. You captured a beautiful sisterhood!

  • Sara T - Kirsty! “Down in the dump, grumpy guts”. I adore this saying and I will repeat it in my house one day, thanks to you. I do love your optimism even in those months you are trying to regain your life’s rhythm. It can be so difficult, but rewarding once the rhythm is reset and peace is restored. I adore the way you write with conviction. I don’t think you are delusional. I think this is the ebb and flow of life. I have my kids on a goal and point system complete with a checklist every morning. Mornings in our house are “golden”.

  • rowe - how i can relate to every word… how we love them more than life itself but they can make us crazy at times and on one hand we feel like it will never end and on the other we find ourselves dreaming of days where things feel normal again! sometimes it takes little longer than we hope to reach our happy place but when we do, we are so thankful because of the grumpy days! i like to think the grey cloud days are kind of a blessing in disguise! maybe thats just me? rowe x (p.s. love your imperfectly perfect film photos lovely)

  • Sarah C - I love this. So real, and so the image is so beautiful! We have plenty of times like these. Our four children are all so different and sometimes that is enough for them to get along so well, and then other times they are seriously outshouting each other and I am ready to hide in a corner lol! We also have a growler too so I may have gotten a giggle there. I love you and your sweet girls, and though we have never “met” in person I feel like you are a dear friend. Some day I hope our girls can meet, because I know my little ladies would adore yours!
