Who is looking to get more from life? I know we are. Over the past couple of years we have focused on spending more quality time with our little family, exploring new places, finding local areas to walk in, and enjoying those little moments.
It really hit home when my eldest son started secondary school, I had this sudden realisation that children don’t stay small for very long, and soon he won’t want to be spending time with us and will be wanting to go out with his mates instead. It made me think that it is so easy to potter along getting jobs done, watching TV, on the computer and the dreaded homework!
I wanted to spend quality time with them all, I wanted to show them places around them, and ones that were right on their doorstep, although there is a huge world out there that is just waiting for them to find.
Children love to be outside, school weeks are tough on them, they’re inside a lot, they’re being told to sit down and listen, then there is the working week routine, but come the weekend it’s lovely to break free from that. To get outside and to be able to talk to each other without too many distractions, or to have the enjoyment of finding a new place together. My children still talk about Ashley Heath walk, it’s only in The New Forest and it was a freezing day, the rain had frozen and there was ice puddles everywhere. 2 hours of free place, no rules just playing.
Get Moore From Life isn’t just about being outside together, it is about time, moments, things you love in life or things you have purchased to make life just that little bit more special.
So I wanted to create a linky that we could use to celebrate that. Celebrate those little moments in our lives that we think are special and we ‘Get Moore From Life’ from. So a few questions answered for you, and then I hope you would love to join in with me at the bottom.
Why The Name?
If you only know me as Steph, then my full name is Stephanie Moore. So to play on this, the linky is pulling from my surname and making it unique to us. I hope you like it as much as we do!!
