Saturday was certainly a dreamy affair for this family of chocolate-lovers as we rendez-vous(ed) in Harrogate for a chocolate workshop at new chocolatiers Harrogate Chocolate Tree- and proceeded to spend the most delicious two hours of our lives creating chocolate treats together, tasting, decorating and basking in all things cocoa!
Tea at Betty's.
For those following my blog or even just my Facebook and Instagram accounts, you'll know my deep love of Yorkshire. Born in Leeds, I moved to London for uni then stayed for 11 years, before returning back up North 4 years ago with husband and first child in tow.
Blogging is utterly brilliant isn't it?! Thanks to my style blog Mummy's Got Style originally and this post HERE, stunning luxury designer baby bag brand Nova Harley hired me to model their beautiful changing bags, and nearly 1 year to the day, and 3 campaigns later, I'm hugely proud to be their model and ambassador.
We love to fill our weekends with wintry walks and precious family time, mostly eating, playing and enjoying all that beautiful Yorkshire has to offer us. I usually focus on style, mine and the kids, over on my style blog Mummy's Got Style but every so often, I like to showcase what we rock, right here too!
Although I was born in Leeds and we've now lived in Leeds for nearly 4 years after many years in London, we are still discovering new happy-making places in this beautiful part of the world for all the family.
Yesterday was a perfect Autumnal day at the RHS Garden Harlow Carr in Harrogate. With the trees turning russet and golden, it was a beauty to behold. I think Autumn might just be my favourite season of all-a time of change, leaves mature, reach their peak, the air is still warm yet fresh and Yorkshire, my friends is at its finest.
Last weekend saw my youngest son, Alexander turn 2, two whole years! I know every parent on the planet says the same thing, but doesn't time fly, people?!
What I got up to and bought on the weekend...
The Tour de France spinned off in glorious Yorkshire, starting at the centre before passing through Harewood House, very close...
It's days like these are full of happiness, Betty's coffee and cakes, dirty wellies and smiley faces. Now the sun is out we can't wait to return again, observing the gardens grow through the seasons-what a joy!
Sunday the 22nd of September was a big day for our little family. Alexander's christening day.
Preparing for Baby No 2's arrival got me thinking back to other monumental days and most recently our wedding day-we celebrated our 7 year anniversary (6 years since the Greek wedding, 7 since the English) last month and time has truly flown by!
