this is where we used to live

This may or may not be our last night in this apartment. We are only moving downstairs, into a much bigger place. I am really excited to move on and open this new chapter of our lives, but I am so so sad. This was our second apartment together but I feel like it is where blake and I built our lives together and i'm completely heartbroken to be leaving. I haven't felt this sentimental in a long time. I should always take more photos of my life, so many treasured moments are always passing us by. I feel like I'm in high school again!

i am working on a project, a suitcase love-letter to my baby child, a storybook biography in a box. I am trying to find inspiration and looking at work by the wonderful joseph cornell. I'll post pictures as soon as I'm finished, but it's going to take awhile.

isn't it pretty?

vivre la poutine!

I can never tell whether I am hungry or not because I always want to eat everything but I always feel so full! As a result I just overeat and moan about it or forget to eat until I give myself a panic attack. Quel dommage.

oh, and vivre la poutine. image from food guy montreal.

before bebe

I love my unborn baby and am sooo excited to be a mother, but I'm also really looking forward to getting out on the town again, one day.
and here's hoping those clothes will fit again!

i love peep-toes

I bought these shoes last year (in black) and honestly, they stretched out pretty quickly and have a pretty thin sole - not exactly the greatest quality shoes around. BUT they are pretty much my very favourite shoe in all other regard. I'm tall so i like a low heel, and since this is a wedge i know I can wear these shoes out dancing or walking home with groceries (or baby!) in tow without having any discomfort or difficulty walking. I also think the plain black wedge goes with just about everything. I love nothing if not a flexible shoe. Thing is, with the fore-mentioned flaws in mind, when my last pair finally fell apart (after I wore them day in and day out last summer,) I told myself I would only buy these shoes again if they were half the price.

They're finally on clearance! Not quite half the price but spring is on the way and i can be a little compulsive when I shop online. In other words, i bought two pairs. Maybe not the greatest use of money with baby on the way, but something tells me I won't regret it.

Today I am somewhat randomly missing one day of our trip through the States. One special antique store in Billings, Montana. I can't even remember what state this photo was taken in (montana? wyoming?) but something about the sun in Montreal today reminds me of that day and one long road home.

found it!

I found it! It of course being the scarf Beyonce is wearing draped over Blue Ivy in the signature baby-wearing photos that were released this week. As happy I am that I found this scarf, i'm kind of disappointed that she's not just wearing a leopard or cheetah print baby carrier. I have been searching the internet for one but so far haven't found exactly what I would like. I'm not a floral type of girl, what can I say?

the scarf, along with some other gorgeous pieces, can be found here.
