The weather has changed so quickly over here! One day it was hot summer days and the next fall blew in with rainy, cool, gloomy weather which has me thinking all things fall! And just like that September is over and October rushed in and Thanksgiving (in Canada) is only days away! This year for my tablescape I wanted to think outside my white, gold, bright box – which wasn’t easy for me but I am so happy with how it turned out! I really had no idea what I was going to do so I walked into Homesense and kept an open mind. I started looking for something to jump out at me – something that wasn’t white or gold but yet fall related! The most gorgeous emerald green velvet pumpkin jumped out at me and even better was that it had a gold stem! I knew that was my inspiration. I am crushing on emerald green right now and I knew it would be the perfect piece to my table. I thank started thinking about traditional fall colours – burnt orange, mustard yellow, warm white and I went with it! I also wanted to incorporate different textures and I did this by using velvet pumpkins, wicker place mates even my bowls had a texture pattern on them.

  • The privilege and blessing it is to be their mommy is one I don’t take for granted ever. They were each worth the years of heartache. Today is always an emotional one for me so today I say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the moms - the first time moms, the seasoned ones, the mommy’s in waiting, the hurting ones, the grieving one wether that be from the loss of a mom or a loss of a baby/child, to the foster mamas, to the bonus moms to the adoptive mommy’s and the birth moms - I am thinking of you today and I hope you feel love and valued because you are!
  • As a mommy I find myself often times so proud to be the mommy of my little people. I remember being proud when they slept through the night or took their first steps. The older they get the more proud I am of them not necessarily when they simply accomplish a task or master a skill but when they make choices that show their true character. This girl had another gymnastics competition today and she was feeling all kinds of nerves but as she told her brother and sister “I just went out there and did it” and that she did. I was so proud of her not just for being brave or not just because she put lots of work into learning her skills and ended up placing in each event she competed in but because my 6 year old was awarded the sportsmanship trophy for the ages 7-9 in the competition. That to me as her mama made me cry and beam with pride. My girl out there with a positive attitude encouraging the other athletes and competing in a kind and fair manner that’s what it’s all about to this mama. I can take no credit for her awards or her trophy today she earned them all but I sure am proud and not afraid to say it. I love you #graylynnhope and I’m proud to be your mama not just today but everyday!
