The Perfect Field

Style & Beauty
1

Imagine you are driving around with your sister/friend in the car and the kids in the back seat. The music is playing and you have no particular destination except to find an empty field with a mountainous view in the background. We were coming back from a little small shop browsing and coffee, taking a stroll through the side roads.

We passed a few great fields, but the car tailing our rear made us not feel like it was the best time to swerve to the side. One turn to the left and we were on a quite road that neither of us had taken anymore. We were getting sick of searching for the perfect spot and decided that the next mailbox pull out we would stop.

“There’s one on the right!”

As we come close to the pull out we look at the field to the left and to our surprise, the field was full — blanketed — in white swans. We were giddy. I grabbed my things, darted out the door and was ready to share how I styled my vegan leather jacket by Mink Pink available in Canada through Citizen Grace.

My sister stayed in the car with the kids and took picture of me from her car like she was an undercover detective and I was in the middle of a scandal. The best past was that when I got across the road and looked back at my sister I noticed that the house we parked in front of had a tripod set up and were also trying to take photos of their own. I think I might be captured in a few of theirs now too! #bloggers

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.

This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.

For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
•⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into dqcakes.com and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on DQcakes.com⠀
