With January nearly over and the weather horrible, wet and cold I am longing for the start of Spring, and it seems like I am not the only one.
Al Fresco Holidays, who offer an amazing range of family focused holidays, is also longing for the warmer weather too, and on their blog they are asking people to send in their favourite holiday photographs to be in with a chance to win a £300 holiday voucher or a lovely Nixon DSLR camera.
We didn't get a holiday last year, and so we didn't get to visit the seaside at all, something I missed, and I am certain I will make amends for this year.
In fact it has been a few years since we went to the sea, instead opting for a boat trip holiday around the UK's canals in 2012, which although stunningly beautiful, just was not the same as a trip to the beach.
A simple family holiday together, escaping from all the stresses of everyday life, is what I am dreaming of.
A family holiday lets you take a breather, and relax and appreciate life for all its wonder.
The memories in these photos remind me to cherish family time instead of just letting the days slip by, and this summer thats exactly what I aim to do
If you have some summer holiday photos which hold memories making you wish you were back there then
