8 Photos of Happiness tag

Started by Ariel Ward, the 8 photos of happiness tag is something I have been seeing around quite a lot recently. Since I love doing tags, I thought I would give this one a go! I was reading someone’s post where they tagged everyone (I think it was Jenny) so here goes:

Rules and explanation of this tag

Thank your nominator/s and link them in your post.

Link the creator (Ariel’s little corner of the internet)

Post your 8 photos of happiness;

The photos can be anything that represents a moment, object, place or feeling that makes you happy

Pop in a brief description of the photo, why you chose it or let the photos do the talking!

Spread the happiness and tag up to ten other bloggers!



This is one of the only pictures of us that my partner actually likes (probably because you can barely see him). I love it because it was the first time I had taken him to a family event, this was for my cousin’s 40th.


I have countless photos of Jack as a newborn and some done professionally by the Bounty lady who came round but I love this one the most, a picture I took in my sleepy haze. I caught an infection during labour so ended up sleeping quite a lot for the first week of Jack’s life (apart from feeding him – Steve was invaluable during that time, he really did so much!), so this picture from about an hour after Jack was born is one of my favourites.


With Jack turning FOUR soon, I had to include this one from his first birthday. He is completely baffled by the birthday cake but he just looks so adorable.


This one really makes me chuckle and always puts a smile on my face. He was such a poser for the camera when he was younger.


How could I not include this one? This picture makes me happy because just look how perfect he is. I made that.


I had to include this one of some of my blogging ladies. Without blogging I wouldn’t have met them (although I did originally meet Tanya and Lou on FB). I know I can always turn to them, they’re a good bunch.


If I’m sharing pictures of Jack, its only fair I share the picture from when I got engaged in Rome (read all about the proposal here). This means so much to me as it is obviously such an important moment in my life.


Finally (and it isn’t the most flattering as we had all had quite a few drinks by this point – see 5 Ways To Survive Your Best Friend’s Hen Night for what you really should and shouldn’t do), I had to include a picture of my best friends hen night. Michelle and Alice are two of my oldest friends and this is one of my favourite pictures of us regardless, as it shows we had a great time.

I’m tagging:

Bek from Dillydrops, Zena from Zena’s Suitcase, Kaz from Ickle Pickle, Lisa from Lisahh-Jayne, Sarah from Life In A Break Down, Helen from Mummy To The Max, Helen from Uneven Lemming, Rachel from Rachel In Real Life and Charli from Charli B.

  1. I love, love, love this tag that you’ve completed. What gorgeous photographs that mean so much to you. It’s lovely to see.

    As you’ve mentioned on Facebook I’m going to count this as my tag to complete it as it’s a great idea. Not actually seen this tag before.

    I will follow you on Twitter and I’ll let you know when I’ve completed it.

  2. I have never heard of this tag and would love to do it. I really like that photo of your son smiling, it’s such a cute cheeky smile. That proposal photo is great as well!!!

  3. I love your proposal picture! I wish someone had captured a picture of mine! I’m gonna go have a read of your story now 😛 this is such a sweet tag, I love the idea.

  4. Aw what a lovely idea! I’m thinking I will consider myself tagged and do one for my family! Loved the one of your little guy at an hour old x
