I always take dedicated photos for the siblings post, like always, but at the risk of sounding like a broken record I have been a bit poorly the last few weeks which is still lingering and I literally completely forgot it was the middle of the month already. As I sit to write this it is already well into the 15th and I have been prompted purely when seeing others shared on social media, so yeah, I simply do no have time.
Thankfully as a camera woman possessed and a natural memory maker I do have photos of the two of them together and so for the first time ever I am mixing it up with a variety of photos that sum up their relationship right now. Snippets of their life just together. These are mostly candid shots taken throughout the month and I love each and every one, each tells their own unique story, sometimes good and sometimes not so. If it wasn’t for this timing oversight they probably would never have seen the light of this blog. Though I can’t help but feel thankful that they have as looking back on them I can’t help but smile, even the grumpy ones. Because sometimes they are hugging and looking longingly in the direction of the other and sometimes they are fighting over a soft toy won on a tombola that will most likely become a distant memory as soon as they step foot in the door.
At times these two do have it tough and this month has had many ups and downs on an almost daily basis. I always struggle with how much to document and share on here and truth be told I don’t know how long I will be capturing these photos and how often I will talk about the ins and outs of their lives and relationship because as usual life is a bit messy and complicated and I only ever want to write things and record moments that I am sure they will be happy or proud of when they grow up and start to read it themselves. Of course the odd funny thing they do or say may cause a raised eyebrow and hopefully make them laugh at the dynamics as they grow but much more personal, deep down things that they struggle with or that affect them, I am not sure I will share. Yet I never ever want to be insincere.
Anyway I have gone off on a tangent here but what I wanted to say was this is mostly their highlight reel, they have their ups and downs as all siblings do but push comes to shove they are more than happy to have each other by their side and they are the most fun loving girls ever always gravitating towards the other who despite the arguments at times take each other and accept each other just the way they come, no questions asked.
I am also painfully aware here that we probably wear stripes more than is normal or necessary! Got to love a good stripe though right? Stripes for life!
I love this last one, I wasn’t going to include it as obviously I am in it but it says so much, at times I am way too involved in their relationship making sure everyone is ok and happy and sometimes, just lately, I have been trying to sit back and know that they will work things out. Like when Roma is riding too close to Eva and Eva is riding too close to me whilst trying to sit and read….it’s like a never ending game of tig. Yet no matter how relentless if feels right now it will end, sooner than I am ready, so for now I will sit and read and always have an eye and an ear out to raise a smile at their little old lady squabbles.
