i am digging the bathroom reflections. Most self portraits are taken so close that i find it challenging to capture a flattering angel if you’re going for a face shot. The mirror allows for a bit more distance between self and the lens. i like that and i like these recent reflections.

Today my mom is 70 and growing younger in spirit. She’s pretty great. You’re lucky if you know her stories.

final flurry

seasons | Friday, March 28th, 2008

Just yesterday i began some Spring cleaning and packed away the snow gear and then this morning we woke to a strange Coastal snow flurry – the hugest flakes ever. Little A was ecstatic, the snow pants and mitts were dug out from the basement and off he went to catch snowflakes. i’m quite sure this is the end of Winter now.

nature | Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

It is cherry blossom festival in Vancouver, our neighborhoods look all sugary and those huge magnolias are a pink delight. We found a swing in a good place. Little A said “it’s quiet and beautiful here” and indeed he was right. We spent a good while swinging in the sunshine this early afternoon.

Easter

artful projects,celebrations,seasons | Monday, March 24th, 2008

We’ve spent the past 3 weeks noticing signs of Spring – bunnies, buds, blossoms, grass growing, sun & showers…we visited the wee hatched chicks at Maplewood farm, we’ve had many egg dyeing sessions and the nature table is laden full of nests. Aside from the numerous photos and projects shared here these past weeks, Easter was relatively low key and perfect – a wooden egg hunt indoors since it was wet and rainy, some Sunday hot chocolates out with the gals, a yummy papa made dinner and last minute drinks out while grandma bathed the little monkey before bed. All in time we are creating our own family traditions, keeping it simple and yet with enough magic (and dark chocolate) to put a big fat smile on Little A’s face.
