"I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think." — Rumi
We took these photographs in the haunting woods of Edworthy Park. We seem to go there a lot for picture-taking. I think it's because the forest makes my heartbeats audible and every sunbeam is free to give life to trees and critters instead of skyscrapers and pieces of glass. Sometimes it's just nice to get away from the chug-a-lug-a-lug-a-lug of traveling cars and closer to the beatings of your heart.
This dress was a gift from the online boutique dress empire. It's the closest thing to "princess" I've ever worn. I kind of feel like heaven is dancing between each sparkle. It's also really beautiful to touch.
I'd love to stay and write but I've been so busy preparing for Elves in the Village. If you belong to my facebook family, you may have seen the poster for the event. It's a holiday market located in the historic Simmons building in East Village Calgary. Vendors will be selling handmade goods, crafts, vintage apparel, jewelry and lots of holiday magic! I'll be there with my mum selling pre-loved clothing and a few handmade treats. It's happening tomorrow & Sunday from 10-7pm. Admission is by donation towards the Heartland agency. (Don't forget there will be cookies, hot chocolate, food trucks & live music too!)
