“Look at the stars, look how they shine for you…”

“Your skin, Oh yeah your skin and bones… Turn into something beautiful. You know you know I love you so”

This is Sunday morning… lazy time. Hanging out with all my boys, doing nothing, just being… until of course the wrestling & the wriggling starts and the peace disappears… oh well.

I’m taking a break this week, to feed my creative soul and take part in photography workshop… I’m equal measures of excitement and nerves…

…who am I kidding?

Nerves all the way.

But in a good way.

See you on the other side.

Song lyrics by Coldplay – Yellow. Possibly my all time favourite song… my own interpretation is the love story of growing and raising our boys – my journey into parenthood.

    I’ve taken quite a break from blogging and reading blogs to have a baby and stuff ;) so I’ve spent the good part of this afternoon’s nap time to catch up here, and I just had to reply and say how much I LOVE this post. the b&w conversions, your sweet boys, the comfy coziness of it all … it’s absolutely stunning. your work always inspires me, xanthe. xo

    I love Coldplay. And “Yellow” is one of my favorite songs. But there are so many favorites, actually. :) I love this post. The photos are simply beautiful; your sentiment is captured and expressed so wonderfully. Have fun at the workshop!

    Oh Xanthe, this is so strange. I’ve been singing this song all weekend! It just popped into my head… I too feel it’s about my boys growing. We are painting a door in our dining room blackboard and it will be the first thing I write… xx Lou

    Black and white photos reveal more somehow…they’re soulful. I love these that you’ve shared! Good luck with your workshop; I relate to the nerves. :)
