Doesn't it happen so quickly? One minute you are wishing the warmer days would last and all of a sudden you relish the darkening evenings, the smell in the air, the crispness of the leaves underfoot. I think it just happened this weekend... I walked outside one evening and the 'smell' was there. And I didn't mind.
So I though I would give you a little update on what's going on in the land of Ellie loves...
My world is filled with the never-ending rush that is parenting and daughtering! Lulu is in fine form and full of the joys of being a toddler. She is speaking more and more and it's a lot of fun listening to her little take on life. Most of it revolves around a complete obsession with Peppa Pig. Her love for that pig is ardent and absolute. Could be worse I guess!
My own Mum is three weeks away from the end of her eight months of chemo and although it has been nothing short of a struggle, she is doing really well and I'm very, very proud of her.
I am currently 26 weeks pregnant and the bump is getting pretty big now. Ivan and I are having fun discussing baby names and trying to get our heads around the fact that we will be 'parents of two' very soon. Something I never saw creep up on me - but here it is, in all it's glory!
Ivan's new business is coming along slowly but surely. Trying to launch a catering company in this recession is a tough call and takes a bit of madness mixed with stubbornness, both of which he has! He has also launched a new music blog called Tunes Please where he posts a song each day. Check it out sometime...
I am launching some new makeup courses at the end of September and will be filling you in on that very soon. I'd love to meet some of you in person one day on one of them!
So to the blog... I will be adding some new and regular features weekly which I hope you will enjoy...
Monday Makeup Review
Thursday Home Loves
(and of course The Friday Freebie)
I will still be writing, as I currently do, about all things that take my fancy in addition to these new posts so I do hope you continue to enjoy Ellie loves.. and I love to hear from you too so keep your comments coming!
Happy Autumn my lovelies...
