32/52 – Her & Him

A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2015.

Little Miss : Such a silly whimsical girl you are. “Helping mama and papa” today meant you were going to make us laugh while we worked in the fields, picking fruit to put away for winter. Every once in a while, you brought us something you found that was just perfect, but most of the morning, you just walked through the rows, danced in the sun and imagined yourself in magical lands. You have such a vivid imagination, I’m sorry if I can’t keep up sometimes. Mama’s mind isn’t always as quick as yours, but if you are patient, I will always try to catch up. ❤

Little Man : We went berry and corn picking again today and as always, you were in exploration mode. Although you spent a better part of the morning squashing raspberries between your fingers, at one point, I caught a glimpse of you playing with the dirt in the field : You felt it, smelled it, laid in it, buried your hand in it… I watched you for several minutes, you didn’t even notice I was there. So connected, so mindful. Your delicate nature sometimes get overshadowed by your more active side, but I love being reminded that it exists in you as well. I love every side of you my darling. ❤

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.

    Happy times! How lovely that you are managing to do so much picking and preserving. Let me know how your experiments in lacto fermentation go!

      Hello Sophie! Welcome back. So far, the sauerkraut is doing well. I had a little taste of the brine and it tastes just right. We will be trying our green beans this week-end. I’ll be sure and report. 🙂

    Your little miss looks like she is having fun in those raspberry bushes. And your little man looks lost in his own thoughts in this photo. He also looks a little more grown up. Can’t wait to meet your kiddos in a few weeks 🙂

    Enjoy your week. xo

      He is growing up so fast, My sister is in town this week and she couldn’t believe how big he,s gotten in just a few short months. Same here, we can’t wait to spend those magical days with you guys. All Little Miss does is talk about it all day long… She always asks if we are leaving “tomorrow”. 🙂 I can’t wait to see her face when I finally say “yes, we are leaving tomorrow!”

    Your little man definitely has looked more grown up in the last few weeks’ photos, and I love the impish peeking through the bushes one!


    • Yanic A. says:

      Hehe… sometimes, it’s just about having the camera out at the right time.
      He is growing up so fast. And his hair just keeps getting so much longer and fuller. It really does make a huge difference.

I would love to hear from you so please, take a minute and say hello!
