LAKE DIEFENBAKER





Summer is officially over but today I want to #throwback to one of my happy places in Saskatchewan: Lake Diefenbaker. From the moment I visited it back in 2012 I knew that it was the place I wanted my family to make beautiful memories.

Its 225km long with about 800km shoreline. A reservoir and bifurcation lake in Southern Saskatchewan, formed by the construction of Gardiner Dam and Qu'Appelle River Dam. The contruction began in 1959 an the lake was filled in 1967. The lake is beautiful with water that I can claim looks like Caribbean ocean {I have a wild imagination so if you go there and it's nothing like that then you know}.

There are so many deserted shorelines and each time I find myself imaging living on my own little private island. Few people seem to know it. Sometime people that have lived here most of their life don't even know it. Even in the hottest days the shorelines closest to the dam is pretty much deserted.

BOOKS: TALLULAH, THE TOOTH FAIRY CEO


Whenever I go to the library I make sure to pick up at least a book that depicts a culturally diverse character. My children are getting more interested in their skin tone and I want to encourage them to see the big world and how we're all beautifully differently made. I believe books are amazing tools to teach them about diversity.

I was over the moon when I received an email asking me if I would be interested in reading Dr. Tamara Pizzoli latest book Tallulah, the Tooth Fairy CEO. The cover is bold and I love it!


I jumped up for joy because I've been admiring Dr Pizzoli's children books for a long time. I love owe she infuses diverse cultures into the stories. As you can see the cover is bold. I wanted to read it so much but more importantly my daughter wanted to read it. The story reminds me of what my daughter did when her first tooth fell out.

We're waiting for our copy to arrive. In the meantime this is a synopsis of the story-

Tallulah the Tooth Fairy is not only the founder and CEO of the largest teeth collecting organization on the planet, Teeth Titans, Incorporated, she's a clever and wildly successful business woman with an affinity for all things dental. A natural innovator and problem solver, Tallulah finds herself unexpectedly stumped when six year-old Ballard Burchell leaves a note instead of his tooth under his pillow. What's a Tooth Fairy to do when there's no tooth to take?

A giveaway is coming up soon, so stay tuned!

OUR EVERYDAY LIFE: AUTUMN SIGNS


This week was the week I felt like I'm settling into our new routine after the summer. I'm feeling calmer and though I have few projects lined up I'm taking it slow. 

We didn't make it to swimming this week. Monday I was too tired to drive and Wednesday the kids fell asleep when I arrived at the pool so I brought them back home. 

We were on our way to school one morning when AOI said "When you're not in kindergarten you think it's easy, but when you're there is so hard." Yep, her eyes are open to the hardship of the world of education. She is adapting slowly to her recess dilemma and I'm trying not to go there but I watch her from afar to see how she's doing. Wednesday she cried but stopped when she saw an adult and I watched her sit down and carry on eat her snap whilst the father of another girl that is finding recess difficult talked to the girls.

I'm loving the dark side of the light in my photography. I hope my next client will love this mood too.
