The Day That – A beautiful gift picture for any special day
I wanted to write about something that I’ve bought thats very close to my heart. I have not been paid by the company to write this, nor do I have any connection to them at all except my love of their work.
I first discovered this company when they were exhibiting at a baby show that I attended a good 3 years ago now. I was so overwhelmed by their work that I kept their leaflet for ages in a draw.
Their idea is amazing, you can buy a sunrise picture from any date special to you in the last 8 years. Each morning for the last 8 years someone from their company (and I get the impression its not a large company by any means so thats a lot of hard work and dedication) has gone down to the coastline in West Cornwall and taken several sunrise photographs. Can you imagine that everyday no matter what time or weather conditions having to get up and out, and just take a moment to realise that in summer sunrise is very early. I am in awe of the people that in the middle of winter have to leave their cosy beds to make sure they get that perfect picture, as for someone, somewhere in the world that day will be their first on this earth.
The Day That
When I first saw the pictures of the sunrise the first day I became Mummy I had tears in my eyes. That day was so special to myself and my husband, our lives changed for the better in so many ways and what better way to remember it than with a picture of the sunrise that morning. Not only is it a beautiful shot but it means so much.
When our second son came along of course I couldn’t wait to see his sunrise too. My view of the sun that morning was from the birthing pool in our lounge looking out over our garden and as beautiful as that view and his birth was the sun rising over the calm sea in Cornwall makes for a better photograph to hang on the wall.
I have hung them both at the top of our stairs, so each new day and each evening and time in between I am reminded of the days that our lives changed, just a snapshot of a tiny moment in time that meant to much to us.
So now I have two beautiful sunrise pictures that mean so much to me, the two days I want to remember for eternity…..
