15/52 & 16/52 – Her & Him

A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2016.

(15/52) Little Miss : It was your first dance recital this week-end. Everything was so exciting! You had your first dress rehearsal, your first sound and light check. You looked so adorable in your little dress, barefoot on the black stage. When you stepped out of the dressing rooms after the show, grandma and grandpa had bought you flowers, you were so proud. And we were proud of you! You decided you wanted to continue dance this season, it’s the first time you’ve asked for it. I hope you stick with it, it makes you so happy. You know I’ll never force you to do anything you don’t want to do, but to see your passions come to life is thrilling. ❤

(16/52) Little Miss : FREEDOM! This week-end was heavenly. And I know what they about being careful when shedding layers, but we couldn’t help it. The sun was warm, the snow was melting and it truly felt like Spring. You had so much energy, like all the weight of winter lifted up of you in one brilliant moment. I’m looking forward to many more amazing days this season with you my darling. ❤

(15/52) Little Man : You never cease to amaze me. Little tornado, you never stop. So when it was time for your sister’s dance recital, we planned a big snack to try to make sure you would stay sitting until her group was done. But you just surprised us all by sitting for the full 45 minutes of the show, mesmerised by the sounds and lights. It’s moments like this that truly make me believe that no matter what comes, we’ll be okay. These precious moments as a family, we can truly share them. Thank you for proving to us everyday that you are not a statistic or a label… you are our angel. ❤

(16/52) Little Man : Mud mud mud! That has always been what Spring means to you and you got your fair share by the River, watching the Snow Geese migration, this morning. You are fearless, jumping into everything with both feet… literally! You teach us everyday to not take the world quite so seriously and we thank you. We just have to always remember to bring an extra set of clothes wherever we go! ❤

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.

      Thank you for the kind words… They are both growing up so fast. Here I naively thought time would go by a bit slower if I stayed home. How fooled I was. 🙂 xox

    Très jolies photos! La neige qui disparait, le fleuve qui se réveille! Et bravo pour le spectacle de danse!

    Comment va ton jardin Yanic avec le printemps qui arrive. Quels sont vos plans pour les beaux jours?

      Bonjour Marie, je suis désolée de mon silence prolongé… Je tente un retour cette semaine. C’est plus difficile de trouver le temps.

      Notre jardin est tardif. Il a encore neigé hier et les températures (pour le moment) sont bien en-bas de la normal. Aussi, de façon réaliste, nous savons que nous serons beaucoup plus occupés cette année alors nous avons diminuer de moitié nos jardins. Donc, sur 1400 pieds carré, nous avons fermé presque 800 pieds carré et avons semé du sarrazin et du seigle. Mais pour l’instant, rien ne pousse. Mais il annonce 25’C en fin de semaine (oui! un écart de 30’C!) et on devrait voir des petites pousses. On se croise les doigts!

      J’espère que tu te portes bien. xo

        Ça fait toujours plaisir de te lire, mais pas de souci avec les délais. La vie de famille peut nous garder très occupé, surtout avec de jeunes enfants 🙂

        C’est sûrement plus sage de diminuer votre surface cultivable pour cette saison si vous estimez de pas pouvoir en faire plus pour le moment. C’est important de savoir équilibrer vos activités selon les ressources disponibles. Il sera toujours temps d’avoir un potager plus gros plus tard. De toutes façons, c’est déjà pas mal, même en diminuant de moitié! Bien plus que la moyenne des foyers canadiens!

        Pour ce qui est de l’écart de température, le Québec est vraiment le pays des extrêmes. 30 degrés celcius, c’est énorme!

        Ici je vois les petites pousses de pois, kales, salade et cilantro et j’ai transplanté mes poireaux. L’arugula planté l’automne dernier est en pleine forme et mon ail continue sa croissance… Pas de gros succès avec mes épinards cependant… à suivre!

        Je suis satisfaite avec notre décision de diminuer notre superficie. Cela me semble plus “gèrable”. Nous avons de très lents débuts d’aragula, de pois et de fêves. Je commencerai à acclimater mes tomates, mes courges et courgettes et mes poivrons aujourd’hui. Ils viveront moitié garage, moitié à l’ombre pour quelques jours. Ils annoncent finalement de la température normale. Et 30’C d’écart… c’est trop pour nous aussi? Année vraiment bizzare. 🙂

        Bonne chance avec tes jardins. J’aimerais bien les voir… peut-être que tu pourrais m’envoyer des photos?

    Looks like wonderful moments! My husband and I have been talking a lot about our childhood, and our insane love for mud as kids. My love ran so deep that I would make mud cakes and unfortunately eat it.

      Haha! Mud was the BEST! My husband will actually be building the kiddos a mud kitchen this year. Should be wonderfully messy! 🙂

    Bonne idée! Dès que J’ai que j’ai pris des photos, je te les envoie. Ce sont juste deux potagers de 4 x 12 pieds et quelques pots cependant. Rien de très grandiose 😉 Mais comme on peut cultiver à l’année, si j’arrive à bien planifier mes semis, on peut avoir du “frais du jardin” même l’hiver 🙂 J’aime aussi commencer directement avec les graines. L’idée d’acheter des “starters” ne me plaît pas trop car j’ai l’impression de tricher 😉 Du coup, l’apprentissage est plus long, mais quand je réussi, c’est très gratifiant! Heureusement, je maîtrise un peu mieux maintenant, du moins les légumes que j’ai commencé à cultiver il y a plusieurs années. Il y a encore beaucoup de trucs à apprendre cependant! 🙂

    A first dance recital is a very wonderful thing, and she looks radiant. I love the sound of the snow geese migration too, is that quite a dramatic, spectacular event or more of a steady stream?

      She was just so SO proud… And yes, radiant is the right word.

      The snow geese fly in for a shrt period of time twice a year. So it is very dramatic. The shores of the St-Lawrence go from empty to snow geese filled in a few days and as qquick as they came, they go… But we have both Spring and Fall migrations, so we get to enjoy the spectacle twice aa year.
