As most of you know, the hubs and I are expecting our first baby! Our due date is in August, which for months has seemed ages away — but now, as I’m posting August’s wallpapers, this baby business is getting pretty real!
Summer is sooo good! If you’re anything like me, you look forward to those sun-drenched days spent lounging next to the lake, paired with a good magazine, and a cold drink (ahhh). In my experience however, these blissful moments rarely happen on their own – they take a little planning ahead, and often you need to make time, in your otherwise busy life, simply to slow things down a notch!
July, you sneaky sneaky summer month! You’ve caught me by surprise, I must say!
This month’s wallpapers are coming to you a little late. It just goes to show how quickly the days can fly by. And if you’re not on top of them – Woosh! They’re gonna pass right by you! But summer months are always like that, don’t you think?
The summertime countdown is on — and although I don’t generally adopt a scarcity mindset when it comes to life’s pleasures, we all know summer only lasts so long here in Canada, so we’ve got to make the most of it!
Maybe it’s the sweet sirenesque call of the beach whispering in my ear, but I’ve been having a love affair with the colour mint for weeks now! This refreshing hue catches my eye daily, from jewelry, to bathing suit cover-ups, to throw-cushions, and I simply can’t get enough.
If you don’t recall the story of The Little Prince from childhood, or Le Petit Prince by origin, you’ve likely become familiar with the title this year. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s charming story about a stranded aviator who encounters a little prince in the dessert, has experienced a renaissance of sorts – with the release of an animated movie, and now the world premiere of a full length ballet.
~Special announcement~ My hubs and I are expecting our first baby, and we couldn’t be more thrilled! The Melon (as my Dad likes to called him or her) is due late August and we’re busy preparing in true newbie-parent fashion. We’ve upgraded from our bachelor apartment to a two bedroom home (which was totally overdue!), painted the baby’s room a lovely pale grey, and are amassing all things Baby from our generous friends and family. I’m so glad we have people in our lives who know the first-time parenting drill; they are saving me from hours of Google searching “what do babies eat/do/need”!

“Tea for two, and I love you” is a sweet little rhyme my Grandma used to sing as we would sit down to our freshly brewed orange pekoe. Sharing tea and conversation has been such a lovely tradition in our home – and there isn’t a visit to my mother’s without a welcoming cup of tea to start the day!
