#MySummerHaven with Lighthouse

2020's lockdown and the on-going restrictions have seen most of us spending a lot more time at home. For me, the change wasn't too drastic. I work from home as a copywriter, so I'm used to spending a lot of time here. However, with my little boy unable to attend nursery and see his friends, I needed to find ways to keep him entertained and engaged. My partner suggested starting a vegetable patch - something fun we could do together as a family that also had educational value for Arthur (...well actually, us all!)

A few months on and I have to say, I never thought I'd find growing vegetables so enjoyable. It's not only therapeutic to spend time in nature but also incredibly rewarding. A couple of weeks back, we did our first proper harvest of vegetables and the look on my little boy's face was priceless. He was amazed that from those tiny little seeds, we'd grown something we could eat for dinner that night. Myself and Josh were equally as thrilled, not just to have been successful with our vegetables but to have discovered a new hobby we share.

Like for many others, our garden has become of great importance during lockdown, not only as a form of entertainment but also a place to relax and 'step away' from the screens we sit behind. So when Lighthouse got in touch about their #MySummerHaven campaign, all about finding adventure and solace in our own back gardens, I knew it was a perfect match. They kindly sent us some gorgeous clothing to wear in the garden and further afield now we're able to venture out.

A beautiful striped cotton sun dress for me (with practical pockets), an adorable combine harvester embroidered top for Arthur and a lightweight waterproof jacket for Josh - because let's face it, British weather can be rather unpredictable, even in the summer! I'm delighted with each new addition to our wardrobes, the quality is excellent and the designs offer the perfect balance between style and practicality.

Lighthouse as a brand is all about appreciating, celebrating and finding joy in the simple things in life. While the current pandemic has bought sadness to many families (of which my heart goes out to), as someone who tries to find the positives in situations, I'm very much appreciative of the time we gained as a family. It's bought us closer, made us thankful for what we have and it's motivated us to try something new, with wonderful results.
