These days are quite emotional for us.
I'm turning 30 on Saturday and Gabor is turning 40 eleven days later.
It means deep summarizing in our end.
We're trying to be as honest with ourselves as possible - and with eachothers, of course!
Today we got some extra hours childcare from our beloved childminder, so we grabbed a great oat latte, and we took a nice walk around Bournemouth town center.
Taking photos of the beautiful autumn leaves, some portraits, or leave the camera behind in the car?
No, no, no...
We felt we need to face ourselves!
That's the perfect state of mind to take self portraits - as a nice record of our actual status.
No Photoshop on our wrinkles, hair or skin.
No Photoshop on our emotions.
Here. We. Are.
These are pretty important for us, so hope you enjoy them :)

Ok, guys - let's talk a little about the SNOW.
I mean the snow in the UK!
3 weeks ago a dream came true, when one of our best friends moved to our neighbourhood from an other town.
Everything was well-organized - but the snow...
Let's see the facts:
- 2 families
- 2 toddlers
- 2 superhero mamas
- 2 soulful papas
- 15 minutes distance between the 2 flats by car
Long story short, the 2 mamas put their toddlers to their backs, and went to the new flat to do some cleaning, etc.
We had a yummy pizza at the end, and decided to come back to our home together to spend the evening together here.
Toddlers to the back, went down to the street... and got shocked.
Guys, the traffic stopped. I mean COMPLETELY stopped.
All the cars and buses just stood on the route. Without any movement.
And the snow didn't want to stop falling.
Hm... what to do?!
Well....we took an easy 3,5 hours long walk with our toddlers (mostly) on our backs in wind and snow, to get from the empty and cold flat to the warm one.
After several miles and so many breakdowns - we've had enough of the snow and the wind and the cold, thank you :)
A few days later the snow melted, and we tried to forget all the bad experiences with it.
Finally a bit later, but the moving went well, and here we are for each other, yeeeeay!!
The next topic was the East Dorset Wedding Show for us.
We prepared ourselves for the first wedding fair, we were overexcited!
Then the snow....
Those little, cute, beautifully white flakes.... they tangle everything!
Okay, after a sleepless night the wedding show has been cancelled/posponed.
So... what to do?! again...
Let's see the fact: all the gorgeous wedding suppliers are available and ready to action... (vans are full with beautiful flowers and props, etc).
It's clear! "Gaaaaabor!!! Let's do an amazing styled shoot today!!! "
It must be a mindblowing telepathy, as Danielle posted the same idea on the social media.
Yeaay, girl, you are a star!!!
We've contacted Vikkie (Dreaming of Vintage) to come along with their amazing props, too.
In less than an hour our tiny, but super powerful team met in the car park, and the rest is been captured :)
We're over the moon with the result - so I hate to say, but LET IT SNOOOOW!!!! :)
