{ This moment }

{ This moment } – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

 If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see. Inspired by SouleMama.


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.

    and here’s a post for you from earlier in the week! 🙂

      Thank you! I can’t believe my baby will be 1 year old in 7 days. Seems just yesterday I was still pregnant. Staying home for the next couple of years will have been one of the greatest decisions of my life!

      Thank you so much for the sweet post. Can’t believe I missed that. But to be fair, my week has been like a crazy carnival ride. xo

      Thank you… some of the last before toddler-hood! I can’t believe how quickly the year has gone. So happy I’ll be staying home. I would have gone back to work this week if I hadn’t made the move… I can’t even imagine going back to work.

      Have a wonderful week-end as well! xo

    Awe, he is such a doll. Cherish this week. It was not loo long ago Panda turned one. You know what, they still and always are our babies even when they turn one, six, 18, 24 and so on. Your wee one is a keeper. Be well.


    • Yanic A. says:

      I agree… my daughter (almost 4 yo now) constantly tells me that she’s NOT my baby anymore, she,s a big girl… and I constantly tell her she’ll always be MY baby… Time does go by fast though. Sometimes, it would be nice to slow it down.

      Thank you for stopping by! xo

    Oh, Yanic, he’s a charmer, as they say! (For the record, whenever someone says this about my little guy I wince just a tad bc I soooo don’t know what I’ll do the day he starts going on dates!)


    • Yanic A. says:

      I know how you feel! My girl came home from preschool the other day and said ” Mom, all the boys at my school are so sweet, they all want to give me hugs before I leave!”… *sighs* She’s not even 4 yet!!!

      Thank you for stopping by. 🙂 Hope all is well at home and that the new little man is still doing wonderfully. xo
