Monthly musings: June


So, it’s goodbye June and hello July. We are officially half way through 2016!

It’s been more rain than radiance – but I’ve still managed to have a little fun and created my own sunshine along the way. Here’s a round up of my favourite bits…

June has been lovely – I’ve metΒ lovely people, spent time with my lovely family and connected with more of you lovely bloggers than before.

But the month of June is no more.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my blog and on social media.

And remember, whatever the next month brings…

  1. What a beautiful family you have! They all look like lovely, wonderful people! I use “lovely” and “awful” quite a bit. I probably use “awful” way too much. πŸ™‚ Here’s to a wonderful July!

I simply adored this… First of all, how beautiful it is to take time to say goodbye to the past month and appreciate all the things you lived on it… and then welcoming July in such a positive way!!! Im so glad to know you enjoyed June and especially to see it was a month where you felt how appreciated you are and practiced self love!!!! It is a real honor to be considered as a blog worth visiting for you, cause yours is really awesome for me!!! I cant wait to see what July brings up for you!!!! Continue being so lovely!!! πŸ’› πŸ’›

    1. Gosh you made me blush with your kind words. It warms my heart when people compliment my kids and your words have set me up for the day, thank you! You keep doing what you do, you are worthy πŸ™‚

  3. I tried liking your post and might’ve ended up liking and unliking it a couple times – I’m blaming my phone but it’s probably more likely due to my ineptness in using wordpress. Thank you for this wonderful post! I thought back to how June went for me with a much more positive outlook after reading your post. It also sure motivated me to get a move on with my own blog πŸ˜‰ I hope you have a wonderful July!


    1. Haha – I’ve done that, I once left the same comment 3 times on a blog as WordPress wasn’t playing nice!!Thankyou for your kind words – have a lovely day πŸ™‚


  4. It sounds like June was a very productive month for you! Well done for achieving so much. My June was lovely because I started my blog and it’s gave me something productive to focus on πŸ˜€


  5. I have a lot of good things that happened for the month of June, but the most important to me is being able to teach my daughter how to read. =)
