Celebrating this princess' birthday early as @inclinebass flies out to Halifax for 3 shows on the east coast.
It's absolutely true what they say, "they grow up so fast." I look back on these photos captured at festivals. The memories we've made. We never changed our course when we became parents. Festivals cleansed my soul, and once I discovered my truth in that space, I asked myself - why didn't I get to grow up in this loving, welcoming, happy space? My very first motion notion in 2011 I saw a lil bb with ear protection. I never saw a child in my future, but you are everything I didn't know I needed. You've been on more adventures than most people (before you were even out of the womb.) Trooped it cross country with us, our eternal house hunt didn't phase you, and you adapted to every new home, new space, new situation, you are so determined, motivated & sweet. I've played witness as you've blossomed right before my eyes moment year after year, season after season, moment by moment. 🐛🦋 You made me a mom. You give me the space to grow and you believe in me, so.
My dear sweet Autumn Dawn Skye, she is so cute with her big brown eyes.. 😻
- it was SO hard to narrow down these images to 10. Mad love to all of the friends who have supported us in our ventures where I perform and need an extra hand. Autumn knows exactly what home feels like in all of you. ♡ 👬👫👭💃
Ozora’s Young Mud Lord...

The dad was standing right beside him with an even bigger proud smile!! That’s what you call a family trip folks.. I’d still be joining my family’s camping trips if they involved Psytrance & Mud...
Boom Festival super bikes... We had just arrived, picked our camp site and watched this rascal playing the field on our strip. The little rev head waited for Mum to turn and then jumped his wheels and gave his mum the ass end of the throttle. The little champ had the most devilish and victorious giggle as he left Mum chasing behind in the dust.
Our neighbours at Boom festival owned the dodgy 24hour hotdog stand and also this cute little gremlin;) Not the happiest of campers here as his dad just confiscated his quad bike. I got a heap of images for the dad and bribed him so we could store bags of ice in his refrigerator trailer. Camera kept out beers cold for a cpl days, TICK;)
I still can’t believe I’m saying this, but the @seahearnow festival saw the last of Daisy’s nuk. Eternal thanks goes out to the sympathetic, one-step-ahead-of-your-life-stage mom who pulled me aside on the beach and whispered the secrets of the pacifier universe into my ear: “it takes three days,” she told me. “The first day they will cry all night. Do it on a weekend. You’ll think they’re dying and you’re a terrible person, but they’re not and you’re not. Second night will still be hard but not as bad. Third night it will be forgotten. The whole thing sucks, but it works, so do it when you’re ready.” It probably helped that Daisy was losing her s**t for most of the weekend, so when she finally intentionally threw the nuk in the dirt after asking me for it, I hid it in my pocket and told her it was gone forever. That night was long, but over the next three days EVERYTHING HAPPENED LIKE MYSTERY MOM SAID! And now when Daisy reaches her breaking point, her cries for her nuk have been replaced with an incredibly endearing exclamation of, “I can’t do this, mama!” Every once in awhile it comes up in conversation; “I really wish I had my nuk (winky baby face).” But then I remind her that she now has an Ariel nightgown and a Rapunzel doll instead of a nuk, which were purchased (ironically) on the most traumatizing hysterical nightmare of a trip to the Disney store during which I never missed the nuk more. #cantwinemall but overall I am so proud of my little girl, and our current potty-trained, nuk-less life is pretty fantastic! #thegoodpartsofgrowingup#majoraccomplishment#daisymaeve#nomorenuk#festivalbaby
Fall LEAF 2018 💚 Good times with the in-laws and family friends. Being around the warm open minded souls at the festival always gives me a boost of hope for humanity. The best was getting to see Brasby experience so much for the first time! He is a festival kid to the core already!!! #LEAF#lakeedenartsfestival#festivalbaby#fall2018#family#camping
A year ago I watched the ladies of HAIM snuggle all over my baby at the Lost Lake Festival. Tonight he found a hat we brought back with us from Arizona and he wouldn’t take it off lol. @jenniferjusticeleague #festivalbaby
