New Arrival

So much has been happening, the end of Uni + work + the early arrival of our little girl Saffron. She is just 11 days old today and doing well. We had a little photoshoot the other day and here is a picture that I took of her and her dad. All I can say is that I am so in love with her and so happy that she is now a part of our lives.

Saffron & me - Thanks to my lovely husband for capturing this moment.
