Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Here’s to 2014! It’s going to be a great one, I can feel it! We had a quiet Chrissy and NYE at home and let the kiddo’s stay up until midnight for the first time – and they both made it! (although only just, in […]

So, without bringing anyone down, I wanted to share what we’ve been through in the last 12mths. I know I’m not the only one who suffers on-and-off with depression and it’s important that our stories are shared. This could be a bit of a long […]

The 3 Best Things I Did For My Art in 2012
