Last night I went to the preview of Jenny Lewis’ book One Day Young. The book is aselection of images Jenny took for a personal project she began in Hackney 5years ago. It captures women and their newborns in the first 24hours together. The pictures are totally beautiful and full of love. Those first hours of just staring in wonder at meeting this little person that you will be connected with and grow with from that day on, and changed your life.
A handful of images are up along the top floor of Boxpark in Shorditch, you can also get the book here.
There is also a book launch at the Ace Hotel next week, 11th March at 6.30pm, where you can meet the lady in person and grab one of these books.
We all know motherhood is a tough one and has it’s ups and downs. But seeing this last night and flicking through the book on my way home reminded me how lucky I am to have experienced that feeling Jenny has captured in the eyes of the women she photographed and what a beautiful image they each have to treasure of that first precious day when nothing else really matters.
I’ve been trying to get back in to running since having bean3, and it’s all been a bit slow. I’m usually too tired or have run out of time in the day. Always a bit of an incentive when you have something new to wear, so I’ve been browsing trainers and leggings. Came across these from The Upside that caught my eye and there are always a number of Nike’s that are on my wish list (especially Liberty ones).
Also this weekend we will be at Big Fish Little Fish in East London. It’s in Hackney and this one has a festival feel, put on with Camp Bestival. The fancy dress theme is ‘Circus’ and of course there will be lots of music, dancing, bubbles, a craft room, snacks and a quiet(er) room for the tiny ones. These events always sell out, so don’t hesitate in getting a ticket, and get your wiggle on with your brood.
