Update: a blog is never complete, only abandoned.

Ben 26th March 2012 - 14th June 2017.

First of all, I would like to apologise for the long absence. I know many of you reached out and contacted me and I am truly overwhelmed and grateful to those of you who did. I would like to take this time to explain why I have been absent from my blog and social media. Back in June, my beloved Ben passed away. He was only 5 years old. I was heartbroken (and I still am). I felt robbed and almost cheated that he was only 5 and had so much more living to do. I really did not feel like blogging. I lost my passion for writing, photographing and generally, just about everything; it really turned my world upside-down. During this time I had a horrible viral infection. I had a terrible cough, runny nose and felt achy all over my body. Most days I was snuggled up under a blanket, eating soup and napping. For me, it's been a rollercoaster and only now I feel I've been able to sit down at last and write this post. I have been meaning to do it for sometime, but the words wouldn't come. I hope you all understand and thank you for being patient with me. I hope to get back into writing some lovely posts for you all to enjoy. 

Take care,

A Sunday vlog.

Kniveton, Derbyshire.
Clipper Tea - Elizabeth Anne
When I think of Sundays, I think of relaxing and immersing in joyful activities; feeding the mind, body and soul. It is a day of unwinding, revelling in simple pleasures and escaping, heading out on an adventure. Its a time to live well, enjoy the now, slow down and remember the moments that matter. Fun-filled, purposeful and restful Sundays are essential.

10 Ways to make life lovely.

Ashbourne, Derbyshire.
Ways to make Life Lovely - Elizabeth Anne
Enjoy a slow summer by indulging in creative thoughts and allow idle past times and simple pleasures envelope you. Summer is surely the time for the simple things; a quiet moment appreciating your garden, fruit picking, a walk through the meadow or listening to the sounds of the shore.

My first vlog.

Kniveton, Derbyshire.
Vlog - Elizabeth Anne
One of the many joys of blogging is sharing my thoughts, experiences, ideas and pretty photographs on my little corner of the internet and reading blogs written by like-minded people. There is something wonderful in settling down with a cup of camomile tea and reading my favourite blogs. I was inspired by a recent article I read about vlogging and discussing sharing little moments of daily life.
