#TheMagicInEveryday Instagram Community Weekly Favourites

A couple of weeks ago, myself and my lovely blogging friend Fiona from Dolly Dowsie decided to take on a bit of a new venture over on Instagram by launching our very own Instagram community...

We settled on the theme of the every day magic that you find in life - whether it's the innocent smile of your child, capturing a beautiful sunset, a moment shared with a beloved pet - anything at all, because there is magic all around us if we only look to find it.

We were inspired by the Roald Dahl quote 

"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world 

around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden 

in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe 



in magic will never find it."





Each week, Fiona & I will be taking turns to share our four favourite images from the community with you here on our blogs...as well as sharing our daily favourites over on our Instagram accounts.

To join in with this project, simply tag your photos with #TheMagicInEveryday - we would love to see your captures!

So without further ado, here are my favourites for this week...

The ones I have chosen photos showing parents & children together, it can be difficult to find ways around getting a photo of yourself and your little ones..particularly if, like me, you are often the one behind the camera - but I think these are going to be the photos that are most precious to our little ones in years to come.


Clockwise, L-R : @TreasureeveryM, @DearBearandBeany, @AlexBumpToBaby@KerryMarie3

And I HAD to give an honourable mention to this AMAZING capture from @lifeasmum_blog...Best photo I've seen in months!



My favourite of Fiona's images this week is this absolutely gorgeous shot of her partner Jacek and their boys - just perfect!

And my own shot was a very rare one of myself with all 3 of my boys - this is one that Jon snapped on our sofa on my birthday last week, and I just love it!
