But actually we’re American.

Happy fourth! We’ll pretend these are amber waves of grain. And not just a grassy area next to the highway and behind some condos. And I call this next one- “Violet thinks she sees a spider“ Happy Birthday, America! Love from your neighbors to the north. (Yes, neighbors. Not neighbours. My iphone may try to […]


Hey girls. Sit on the step and look at me for a picture real quick. Ok, no. Look at me. You can go see the cat in a second. Just look here. Just sit down there next to your sister for one second and look at me. After this one, Fiona pipes up with a […]
