A New Year

7 am, 1st January 2014. New year, new start, new adventures, new – MOTHER OF GOD, OW. There I was, lounging in bed with Stella, playing a happy if slightly exuberant game of ‘Where’s your nose?’ (THERE IT IS! BOOP!) when ohmigodmyeyeImblindmyeyeohmigodHELPME. Either it was a genuine accident or she’s inherited her dad’s fierce competitiveness. [...]

The Story Of Us {Part 2}

 You can read Part One of Sarah and David’s beautiful story here… 16th December 2006  We go on holiday to New York. I can only describe these five days as magical. We go up the Empire State Building in the day and at night we climb the Rockefeller centre and marvel at how beautiful the [...]

Weekend Wonderings

Seeing as I don’t spend a whole lot of time perusing the UK papers, I may be way behind the time here, but I just found this series in the Guardian, and subsequently lost several hours reading through the previous letters.

Any Other Photo – Piriya and Ben (Part One)

I’ve sneakily called this Part One, basically because I want to make sure that Piriya sends us in her wedding AOP too. But that doesn’t do justice, really, to the story that has gone before this picture. This is a perfect AOP all on its own. It has love, fighting through adversity, and a proposal [...]

Weekend Wonderings

Happy Saturday, one and all! Mr K sent this father-daughter photo series to Aisling and I over the festive season.  Obviously we were both in bits; because, sadly, that’s what we do (he knows his audience).  I couldn’t not share it with you.  January can be a tough month; this will remind you what other people go through, [...]

Any Other Photo {Yanthé and Rich}

Welcome to the first Friday of 2014, AOW readers! And we’re kicking it off with an AOP many of you have been chomping at the bit to see.  Yanthé has sent us in a story that I imagine many of us can relate to (except the Paris part, I’d really like to relate to the [...]

My Way

Happy New Year, readers!  We’ve missed each and every one of you.  We’ve had our Christmas and New Year break, eaten too much, spent time with friends and family, and all three of us are ready for a new year and another year of you lot, your stories, your thoughts, our community.  This post by Siobhan is timely.  [...]
