An Enchanted Evening

I had a beautiful moment this evening that I wanted to share. I put my two little ones to bed tonight, and we sing a song together every night. My 3yo chose 'I Can Sing A Rainbow'. So we sang it together and they went to sleep beautifully after a very busy day. 

Well. I walked out from putting them to bed and the glow of the sunset caught my eye. I decided to grab my phone and go out to see if I could get a good shot. The light was fading fast so I raced out. And took this:

I was standing there revelling in the most beautiful sky I had seen for a while when I turned around and saw THIS:

A rainbow. 
It was getting dark so it's kind of fuzzy but clearly there. And my phone didn't capture the radiant glow of colour that I saw. I was in heaven. 

Then I saw a flash of lightning and heard thunder rumble above my head with soft droplets of rain. And my enchanted evening was complete.


  1. Beautiful. Just the what I needed to read after the day I had. Thank you.

  2. How lovely! I sing my children to sleep too!

  3. Moments like that are truly magical :) Gorgeous photos!

  4. Love it! We often sit out the front to get the beautiful sunsets - I love it and it's a great way to end the day.
