The Gallery: Family

So this weeks' theme for The Gallery is 'family' and again I found it to be a difficult one.  'My family' meant something very different to me a couple of years ago, before E came along.  Family was always the obvious culprits; brothers, sister, parents, as well as my closest friends and Frans.  After Frans and I got married, 'family' included The Danes but things have changed now.  When someone asks me about my family, more often than not they're asking about Frans and Elizabeth.  It's kind of weird to think that I have my own family now, with different priorities.  Don't get me wrong, my siblings and parents will always be my family and I know that some of my friends will always be my family too but everythign's changing.

My very first thought when I read the theme for this week's Gallery was my Nan.  Without me realising it, she was a huge part of my life and I wanted to share a photo of her, to tell you all why she was so amazing and why 'family' reminds me of her.  But then I think about my own little family, one that is soon to expand and I can't help but smile.  They are the world to me, they're my Family, and I treasure all the memories I have of them and look forward to the ones we're yet to make.

Frans and Elizabeth - I love you.
