We feel so blessed to be here in Lunenburg, surrounded by so many rad humans, doing rad things. 🙏
Alex had his eye on the ring on his pinky for months, it was over at @momsbuyandsellshop - well he took it home with him today. ✌
We're grateful to all the friends we've made in the last 7 months, thanks to all of you who make us feel so welcome in our new home. 🤗
Is it all romance? No. Is is there some? Yes!
But it’s really about the bond and love between family. 👩👩👧👦❤️❤️❤️❤️👩👩👧👦❤️❤️❤️❤️👩👩👧👦❤️❤️❤️❤️👩👩👧👦
Debut novel from Emily Murray. Katie is the first in the series, The Ties That Blind.
Katie begins university in the big city of Toronto, moving from Halifax, Nova Scotia where she was born and raised. Seeking a fresh start from high school and independence from her parents, she is excited to stretch her wings with the help of her new best friend and new boyfriend, twins Zinaida and Kirill. However a family crisis has a way of putting everything in perspective—where home really is what counts.
DOUBLE TAP if you love this classic summer look 💖 Alison says she is a little shy of selfies so we can’t see her face here (which I miss) but she did pick out some of her favourite items in the shop! Our @akg_______ basic tee in white, @izipizi sunglasses in black and a @tribes_society brass choker. What’s your favourite item pictured? all items are available in the shop and online at Makenew.ca ✨
This housefly (Musca domestica) was my insect subject today. Gave me a couple of good poses. They pester us, especially our food (for which they have smell and taste receptors on their wee little feet) but they don't bite. That's their nastier horse and deer cousins (no offense to my cousins)! #outdoors#novascotia#nature
⚠️It’s not what you think!
Upon first glance you probably assumed these are pictures of a “bum” looking for bottles to return for cash. Another homeless person we need to avert our eyes to or think of reasons why we have no money to give them, and shouldn’t they get a job anyway??! etc... Nope! He actually came through the walking path, noticed the trash and bottles laying around and started picking it all up! He emptied bottles and removed tops, picked up wrappers, cups and papers and put them all in the city PROVIDED trash bins 🗑‼️. When everything was picked up he started to walk away with a shopping cart that had also been left there. I can only assume it was to return the cart to its proper home; clearly he had no interest in collecting money or bottles. He just wanted to clean up the trash.
It was then that I realized, nobody knows what he did before he started walking up the street with that empty cart, all they will see is an older man, not very fancy, pushing a cart😑😒They aren’t going to look at him with the proper eyes, and see him as an Earth Angel helping to save the planet 🌍 and pick up after us slobs (with no ‘Thank You’ either, by the way). They aren’t going to see him as an exemplary community member actively giving back to the past, present and future generations, someone actually living the Ghandi quote we all know so well, “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. So, if you’ve gotten to the end of this, thank you 🙏🏾. There was no one there to thank the man when he did this but I feel like community (local & global) acknowledgment, whether he knows or not, will be suffice because someone, somewhere reading this has been touched, inspired or felt acknowledged for their commitment and love to the greater cause 🌍👥💙 #dartmouth#globalcommunity#citizenshipaward#captainplanetandtheplaneteers#earthangel#bethechange#neverassume#novascotia#canada#pickupyourtrash#hedidntaskforathankyou#thankyou
You really can see the power and beauty of the Atlantic ocean in a couple of these pictures. One wrong step and the ocean will take you forever. This was last year in #lockeport nova scotia at my parents cottage with my mom and the dogs. Beautiful doesn't describe the ocean views you get from there. The fields are indescribable. I have been all over this country, living and working in the most eastern, western, and northern parts, Lockeport will always be my favorite place in Canada. Couldn't reccomend it more.
