The Fakeiversary

Anniversaries are a funny thing in the Lighty household. I would say that, on the whole, Mr and Mrs Lighty are both fairly nostalgic creatures, yet we have differing opinions when it comes to a certain anniversary. I’m not talking about our wedding anniversary. No, definitely not talking about our wedding anniversary, as we’ve been… Continue reading The Fakeiversary

Beaches and Birthdays

Does anyone else have weekends that are jam packed? Event upon event upon event? Well last weekend was one of those weekends for the Lightys. In fact, last Saturday was a big first for Baby Lighty: it was his first trip to the beach! Technically, he has had a couple of trips to the coast… Continue reading Beaches and Birthdays

With very many thanks to the lovely mum that posted on Hitched.com for freely publishing hers and allowing others to borrow from it, as this really helped in forming the below. If it helps anyone else to form their own naming day script, then feel… Continue reading The Lightys’ Naming Day Script

You’re Only One Once…

Earlier on this week, we celebrated Baby Lighty’s first birthday, hurrah! I know that he won’t remember it as he gets older (although as an aside, Mrs Lighty’s earliest memory is from her first birthday party!) and I did wonder if we were going a big over the top with our celebratory plans, but it… Continue reading You’re Only One Once…
