1. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! I agree keeping it simple is always the way forward. I love going back to places we love. That feeling of a familiar place is calming and romantic. I try to be spontaneous but often the safety of familiarity wins out.

  2. Such a lovely post, Hayley. I have noticed that ‘simplicity’ seems to be a reoccurring theme in regards to what people what for this year. I’m guilty of over-complicating things myself so I can relate to what you’re saying.

    With Jasmine, we are just on that cusp of that elusive ‘things getting easier’ stage. We don’t need to haul the buggy with us everywhere we go now and our ‘stuff’ is also reduced down to a small bag. That said, tantrums are rife at the moment and that makes things a bit difficult when we are out and about. xx

  3. Lovely post and a great sentiment that I think we could all do with bearing in mind. I’m sharing some thoughts tomorrow and again on Monday on my own mantra for 2016 and I’m taking inspiration from you too 🙂

  4. Lovely post which made me feel a little emotional. We love nothing better than running round on the beach or a field on a winters day all wrapped up warm. It’s the little things isn’t it. Happy New Year Hayley x

  5. Happy New Year, Hayley!!! I completely understand what you’re saying. Sometimes, with the little ones, even the most simplest of plans and outings can become a massive ordeal and you start to question whether it’s worth spending hours getting ready and getting somewhere for thirty minutes of fun. But, it’s the thirty minutes of fun that you’ll remember in the future and not the endless packing of drinks, snacks, coats and gloves. M turns three this week and I’ve noticed recently that things are getting a bit easier so hopefully, you’ll feel that soon, too xxx

  6. I have actually written a post for tomorrow about the fact I am going to write less- all for the same reasons as you say here. I took on too much last year and having time off over Christmas really made me see how much I needed to step back. I hope 2016 is a happy one for you hun x
