{ 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.

    Oh that’s cute! I don’t have kids at home anymore but I think I’m still going to carve a pumpkin anyway.

    We had a wedding!Kristin and Matt were married last weekend. It was gorgeous!

      I love our lantern… feels like a little mini fireplace. 🙂 I love that my daughter is all about Halloween this year. It’s been fun to decorate.

      On my way to your moment now… Have a great week-end!

      Thank you, yes it is! Our house is as decorated as Christmas. LOL! I think my 4yo is more excited about it this year than she ever has been.

      Thank you for stopping by, have a great week-end!


  3. I love this. The light and colors!


    • Yanic A. says:

      It’s oddly comforting and calming at night. It,s in a our dinning room window and I’ll just sit by it, on the computer and feel at peace.

      Have a wonderful week-end! xo

    • Yanic A. says:

      No, we bought it. Beautiful glass lantern we found on sale for 10$. We still have to carve pumpkins. We are a bit behind too. But we have a very motivated 4yo. 🙂

      Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely week-end.

    That’s cool! What is that? Did you make it? I guess I should get going on the decorating around here! Oh and the kids costumes…I still have a whole week right?


    • Yanic A. says:

      No, didn’t make it. Bought it, but so happy I did. That warm glow fills the whole dinning room. We still have pumpkins to decorate, but we are strangely on task for Halloween this year.

      On my way to your moment now. Have a wonderful week-end.
