About Yanic A.

Hello to all of you and thank you for stopping by! My name is Yanic. I'm a wife to a wonderful husband, a mother of 2 beautifully complex and unique children and a lover of all things inspiring. Having started a personal journey of self discovery when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter 4 years ago, I've since embraced a daily life of simpler pleasures and gratitude. As we get to know each other, you will know me as a quilter, a gardener, a Tao cultivator, a vegetarian foodie, a true believer in a healthy family life as being the secret to my happiness and hopefully as time goes on, a friend... I will try to share with you my days as they unfold, speaking of my happy successes without censoring my challenges, trying to make this blog a true portrait of the ever-changing path that I have chosen for myself. I'm hoping to find in these pages others to share with and learn from, bringing to light the absolute connection in all things and people, showing this world as being a true community.

    The tutu is a good look! My son enjoys making ‘special secret recipes’ these days. The combinations are sometimes interesting (and often rather tasty!). Bon weekend! The sun is shining brightly here in Brussels.

      The sun is bright and beautiful here too… now if it could be warmer than -15’C, we’d be all set! LOL!

      My daughter makes a lot of imaginary secret recipes… we have to pretend a lot. πŸ™‚ Works our grown up imagination as well. How they are our teachers!

      Have a great one.

      I’ so happy you caught that… the tutu was crucial : She asked if she could help, then asked us to wait while she was putting it on! LOL!

      It should be fairly warm (still 10 degrees under normal though) but we should get some outdoor time this week-end. πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!

    At least she puts on clothes when she does the dishes. I have a picture from a year or so ago (buried in my blog somewhere) of two of my girls helping with dishes, but they thought they need to take off their clothes before starting! πŸ™‚

  19. She looks so much like my Zia when she was a little younger–the soft, loose curls, loving to run the water and “wash” dishes. Have a lovely weekend!

    There’s nothing quite like a quiet (or boisterous) water meditation, is there? Even if it comes in the form of the washing up. I’m really not sure why I’ve never thought to don a tutu to wash the dishes. It could only help. πŸ™‚

      She has been wearing this tutu since she was 2 yo. Although she’s barely gained half an inch around her waist, what used to reach down to her knees now barely graze her bottom. LOL!

    My boys LOVE “washing dishes.” I cannot wait until they really wash them. As my grandmother is quoted as saying “you have to do more than just show them the water!” Great perspective.
