Honouring those who serve

We grew up as army kids, my dad served in the military (Royal Canadian Regiment, 2 RCR) up until I was in grade 1.  My dad's the guy you'll always see sporting his pro-militia t-shirt, his 2 RCR lapel pin, his yellow ribbon magnet on his bumper of the car and he'll be the first to support his friends who have served. So back In October, my dad and I took an overnight road trip to Penticton BC to meet one of his buddies, Bob, that has served for our country.

Visual Storytelling - Library Adventures

This is a series for my Visual Storytelling class over at the Define School. I've learned a ton these past 4 weeks ..and while I know I'm missing a few core elements to the story.. (realized after the fact) I really enjoyed this process.. I've felt stretched and have learned so much! I seriously can't wait to take another class this year! A little recap of my library adventure, I wasn't able to have a lot of free time this week, but did have enough to sneak in a morning visit with my friend Lindsay Hood & her two cute kiddo's to hang out at the Edmonton Public Library.

Mr. M (Lindsay's son) with his big sister took me on the grand tour of the kids area..though, Mr. M was making sure I didn't get any face shots of him without giving me the stare down..so instead, got the cold shoulder LOL but he did happened to find a ton of Christmas books, which he gladly shared with me. Love this guy and the looks he gives~ cute to the core!   As I snuck away to follow Mr. M's big sister.. I caught her picking through stories and LOVED what she was wearing, her pose totally reminded me of the character of Eloise from Kay Thompson's storybooks!!

It was off to the computers..for a little computer time and while momma was checking out the stash of books, the kids climbed up the Lois Hole statue, a wonderful edmonton philanthropist that passed away a few years ago. My  I only wish that as I wrapped up our library adventure, I had taken an image of Lindsay and the kids driving away to complete the story and give it a better ending.... lesson learned :)

Blessings,

Edmonton Child

I love surprises, opening up a little present, not knowing what's inside, and then seeing something that hits your hearts desire.. those are the best surprises! That's what I received the morning I arrived at my office and opened up an email from Chris Reeve from Edmonton Child Publication. She was looking for someone to work with them on a Edmonton Child feature spread.
