To say I am excited about Christmas this year is a bit of an understatement. Just a bit. Ok massively! I always find the run up to Christmas almost as exciting as the event itself. A little like the excitement that builds when you are heading to the airport just as you are about to go on a holiday. I love getting organised and getting the house ready for Christmas. A huge part of that for me each year is picking a theme and finding christmas cards, wrapping paper and decorations that all work together. I love then setting aside some time to sit down with my favourite christmas music to write all our cards and wrap all our presents. It really is the best time of year. Its taken me a few weeks, as it always does, to find the perfect christmas cards this year so I wanted to share my top three christmas card picks for 2015 which I think are some of the best out there this year,

Last week marked two years since I started My Petit Canard. Two years since I sat in bed one evening in the middle of the night feeding our little lady, and discovered this wonderful, friendly, collaborative community. Two years of documenting the life of our little family, and two years of blogging my heart out. It has been a journey of self discovery and self awareness, one which has led to finding my passion. Here’s 10 things I’ve learned from blogging over the last two years:
We’re back again for yet another Marvellous Monday, co-hosted by myself and the lovely Kaye @HelloArchie_ over at Hello Archie. The place where you can link up your shiniest posts, old or new.

I remember the first time I stumbled across the gorgeous GLTC Kimi Table & Stools. I distinctly remember wondering what type of lucky people got to have such designer looking children’s furniture in their house. It was so breathtakingly beautiful. For about a week after I saw it in the new GLTC catalogue it was all I could think about. I wasnt even sure we would have room for it in the little lady’s already rather busy room but that didn’t matter. Like the GLTC Potter Library Table, I would find room for it. So imagine our absolute delight when GLTC got in touch with us and told us they would like to send us a Kimi table and stool set to test and review for them, along with their beautiful Sweet Pea Kitchen. We were so excited, it quite literally felt like all our Christmases had come at once!
