A wonderful day for a wedding

The holy matrimony of a prince and a princess has inspired this post of all things wedding-like and wonderful...

Teacup Pigs

Is there a more adorable thing on the face of the planet than a teacup pig? 
I want one, and I want one NOW.

One of my favourite songs. It always has the ability to make my mind wander off to a distant snow-covered land full of cottages, fireplaces and wildflowers.

by Feist

Helping the kids out of their coats 
But wait the babies haven't been born oh
Unpacking the bags and setting up 
And planting lilacs and buttercups oh

But in the meantime we've got it hard 
Second floor living without a yard 
It may be years until the day 
My dreams will match up with my pay 

Old dirt road,
knee deep snow
Watching the fire as we grow 
(mushaboom, mushaboom)

I got a man to stick it out
And make a home from a rented house oh
And we'll collect the moments one by one
I guess that's how the future's done oh

How many acres, how much light
Tucked in the woods and out of sight
Talk to the neighbours and tip my cap
On a little road barely on the map

Old dirt road, 
knee deep snow 
Watching the fire as we grow,
(mushaboom, mushaboom) 

Old dirt road rambling rose
(mushaboom, mushaboom)
Watching the fire as we grow 
(mushaboom, mushaboom)
Well I'm Sold

Bleubird Vintage Family

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the most stylish family of them all? Without a doubt, the "Bleubird Vintage" trendy-troop wins first place.
One of my all time favourite blogs, Bleubird Vintage, is run by 'Miss James,' a mommy, stylist and clothing designer, who in my opinion {and probably yours too} is one of the most hip and happening mum's this world has to offer. Her blog is riddled with vintage-inspired style, beautiful pictures, and most importantly, photos of her fashion-forward family. Miss James or "Mamma Bird" as she refers to herself is married to a bearded bloke that looks like he could be the lead singer of a Canadian folk band, and together they have three gorgeous little ones, the youngest of whom they have nicknamed "baby bird" {bless their hearts.}
On her blog, the very creative 'mamma bird' has put  some of the cutest ideas into motion, for example, when she was preggos with baby bird, she wrote her little notes every few days and journalled her pregnancy on the blog. Her readers thrived off the idea as they began to follow her progress through pregnancy, birth and early motherhood. Now isn't that just the most adorable thing you ever did hear?
My favourite feature on the blog are the weekly "what we wore" posts that include photos and details of what the Bleubird clan is wearing, and might I say, they always look incredible, especially the kiddies who are living proof that style and good taste is in fact hereditary. 
For this family, sweat-pants and a tee are not an option. Ever.I adore their approach to life and style. It's priceless.
I personally cannot wait to start a family, and this group of lovely people make me all the more excited to one day have a family and babas of my own who I can kit-out in trendy attire. {here's to hoping my future husband knows how to put a decent outfit together, or I may appoint myself as designated stylist.}
Ps: I hope my body looks as unscathed as hers after popping out a few kids. 

Here are a few of my best "what we wore" moments from the Bleubird blog:
