God works in mysterious and wonderful ways! Towards the end of a very busy Summer of wonderful weddings, hubby and I decided to take a week off to relax somewhere in the sun. Clearly that place would not be the UK, so we started looking around at Europe & other not too far away sunny spots. It was at this point that something wonderful happened – my sister, Lizelle called me and said that their annual work conference would be taking place in Turkey during the exact dates Wayne & I were planning our ‘week in the sun’ for! Needless to say I nearly jumped out of my skin with joy – I would be able to see my sister while she is pregnant (she lives in South Africa), which would never have happened, had she not attended her work conference in Turkey – only a short flight away from us! So off we went to Turkey – 2 days after my 30th birthday and a few days later, I spent a wonderful day with my sister, lounging next to the pool and later strolling on the beach in Bodrum.
And below is beautiful baby bow growing in mummy’s tummy – how amazing is this scan!
Of course I couldn’t let this wonderful opportunity pass without taking a handful of photos of my beautiful sis and her bump on the beach in Bodrum. With literally only 30 minutes to spare before she had to catch a taxi back to her hotel, I managed to capture a few frames of my sis with this precious little life growing inside of her, bathed in gorgeous light on the beach.
Lizellie I love you so much and I will FOREVER be thankful that God gave us a day together in Turkey, so I could put my hands on your belly, feel baby kick and get to capture you as a beautiful, glowing mummy-to-be. I carry you and these wonderful moments in my heart…always.
