A month that in the past has been fairly insignificant to me has taken on a whole new meaning this year, and I didn’t want it to slip away without writing a few thoughts down. Will February become a month I remember with great sadness, one of great hope or one of great reflection? I really don’t know. A mixture these – and more I suspect. All I know is that it will be a month I remember.
My styling the seasons post this month is quite simple. In February I’ve needed time to think, to reflect, to be with loved ones, to be peaceful and organise myself for a new baby. I’ve spent many evenings reading, writing things down, decluttering and working away on little projects.
I can’t wave goodbye to February this year without mentioning the glorious sun we’ve enjoyed these last few weeks. Flowers, plants and trees have made me incredibly happy – nature really is magical. Healing even. They are a reminder that some things in life are in our control, and others aren’t. I can feel the hope of spring in the air and I am really looking forward to what March will bring – a new baby boy to our little family.
February, I’ll see you next year.

Sunshine is absolutely a healer. Hoping for a very sunny March.

I said similar things this morning to Nathan about February each year and what it will be.
I am excited for March for you guys and from this past 18 months I would completely agree that nature is a healer and there is something therapeutic about it…
I love your home, it looks so tranquil 🙂 I agree, I am a lover of all seasons but there’s something so comforting about the arrival of spring, signs of beginnings and somewhat relaxed feelings when life can seem pretty hard at times. Fresh air, nature & flowers (& for littles!) and lighter days all help. I admire how you’ve stayed so positive this month, and look forward to seeing your new chapter beginning soon X x
Thanks Nat! It is amazing how much being outside or looking at nature helps. Super excited! Not long at all xx
Such a lovely post, Esther. I hope February was good to you and that you were able to take a bit of time out for reflection and embrace the happy memories. Sending love xx
Thanks Katy xx
