The Heart of Christmas -2016-

Hello BeYouties!

A super short post today –

Not about products

There is so much time for that

I hope that You all had a gorgeous Christmas – if you celebrate it!

I am still in Holiday Mode and will remain until 2017 rings itself in …..

I had a gorgeous Christmas with my Family and friends in Ottawa …

where I was born and spent my teenage years.

I had not been back in 2 years so this year – everything was brighter and had more wonder to it !

We left Christmas Eve

My Mom and Dad’s House looked more than magical

My Mom thinks of everything !

So much beauty!

so creative

It was Not about Stuff – Just being together and that may sound cheesy

But we all celebrate the Holidays in our own ways!

It was all about My Mom this year – as we celebrated her 70th birthday !

I was 6!

Love this photo ….


I had forgotten about all the magical photos in their house

Like this one ….

This is probably my favourite photo of my Mother …

So elegant


so many yums – all home made ….


Her Birthday flowers …

wowy ….

On the 26th, There was a big party held for my mom and I think she was quite overwhelmed as so many of their friends were there, & much of my family from Montreal ….

There were so many speeches …… and songs …..

I read some of my Favourite quotes

I was going to write poetry but thought that I would get too Mushy ….in Public …

as I so often do ….

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone. 
Audrey Hepburn
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. 
Edith Wharton
Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. 
Mother Teresa
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. 
Maya Angelou

It was truly a Gorgeous Christmas because of the huge amounts of Love …

I hope Your Holiday was magical and wondrous !

all love xo

        Kids are so adorable. My 7 year old is still in the cute age but I wonder how long I have before that stops. Although my 15 year is the sweetest little thing ever. Well, most of the time anyhow! How old is your son now? Do you have other children too?

            So, he’s in between my youngest and my middle one. Noah LOVES the camera so I have to fight him to keep him out of pictures. If I post a photo of him on Insta, which I’ll do every now and then, he will literally ask daily how many likes he has and make me read comments to him! my oldest will be in a picture if I ask him to. My middle one? OMG, no way! He’s shy. I wasn’t going to initially let them be in photos and stuff but then I decided I was OK with it. But I TOTALLY understand not wanting to as well! I was on the fence for a long time.

              Mine loves the camera too Lol
              when he is 13 … xo his father – my ex and i ….. decided early on

              my son is just like me – looks wise ……….blonde and blue and really the meaning of my life xoxoxxoxxoxoxxo
