Lauren & Mark {Maternity}

Meet two of our favourite people in this world. Two of the most genuine, caring, thoughtful, helpful and just generally amazing people to grace this earth. They are the friends we’d call family in a heart beat… and the best thing about that is… they actually ARE family!! The best of both worlds!!

If you were to ever meet Lauren (and those who know her will agree) you’d fall in love straight away… you’d fall in love with her sweet gentle nature, her compassionate soul, and her AMAZING  and creative cooking (the type of person who pulls flour and salt from the cupboard and creates a divine smorgasbord of foodie goodness!) She’s the type of girl that would be there for you in a flash… there isn’t anything she wouldn’t do for those she loved! … We love our Lauren!!
And then there is Mark. Tall, witty, down to earth Mark. He’s the man that has helped us immensley with our websites when we first started up… and he continues to today! He’s a DIY fix it man… him and his super pants (think batman’s cape, but BETTER!!) are there if you need a hand. His tall hugs nearly knock me over every time, and I love it… and his sense of humour never runs dry! We love our Mark!!

I couldn’t think of two people more fit for being parents. It’s so exciting watching them prepare for their wee one who will be along any day now. The love that they both have for those around them… is going to be magnified for this little person! I simply cannot wait to see them as a family of 3.
