Hi there! My name is Lucy and I run this show, having set this space up in January 2018. I have been blogging in some form or another since 2003 when I owned a Geocities account and used it like an online diary. That only lasted a couple of years, I went off to university and didn’t dabble in the blogging world for a little while. Back in 2011, my twin sister and I started Creative Wish, a lifestyle blog fitting to a time when we were navigating our 20’s and finding a ton of things to talk about online. We had that site for 6 and a half years and loved it. But our circumstances had changed – we both had our own homes and got married and I was pregnant with my first baby. We felt that we had outgrown the content we had created over the years and I felt like I needed to have an outlet more fitting to the current period of my life.
Skip to the end of 2017 and the idea to set up Lucy and Her Loves. I had given birth in July 2017 to my beautiful baby girl, Ella, and really wanted to start writing again. I had so many things I wanted to talk about being a first time mama and was itching to get creating. I decided to set up this blog, with motherhood and family at its core. I still want to write about lots of other things, but I have a smaller number of categories here, which I hope will keep my content more focused and useful for anyone visiting.
All of the ideas and opinions here are my own, I don’t expect everyone to agree with everything, but I’m experiencing so much as a mama that I wanted to share with the world. I found some useful online resources when I was pregnant myself so thought I would try and make my space an inspiring and enjoyable read for anyone living the family life. I want you to be able to come here and know that I will be showing you how to live your best life, making time for yourself as well as anyone who might rely on you to take care of them.
I hope you enjoy what you see and come back to share this incredible journey with me.
