PEI National Park
PEI National Park, my happy place.
Canadian Museum For Human Rights
The architecture of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg so moved me. It was the first time I felt architecture as art, as it led me through a tale of humanity’s potential for sorrow, as well as incredible beauty. And hope. It inspired hope in me. Definitely destination-worthy. A must-see.
Kennebecasis River
My new favourite summer fun — paddleboarding on the Kennebecasis River.
I’m loving hiking too — this is the summit of Mount Carleton, in the Appalachians.
Favorite musical. I love that guy! He goes through hell and back, suffers betrayal, and evil at every turn, yet, however bad it gets, he accepts where he is and makes the best of it, loving where he can, and, in the end (I don’t think I’m spoiling anything here), it all works out. And, the writing is just so clever, and the music, sets, costumes are so entertaining. It lifts me up every single time.
A mid-winter hike to check out the ice caves nearby.
Love the Halifax Central Library. Lifts the spirits, feels like a “church of books and opening your mind”. I feel good just walking in the doors.
Artist Darlene Baker's peony garden.
My peony garden in bloom. All-time favorite flower.
Artist in Times Square with her four children.
I love my big, gorgeous hat. It makes me feel like a Canadian snow princess. My kids are embarrassed when I wear it, especially around our hometown. But, when we took a short trip to NYC, I told them, “These (New Yorkers) are my people (because NYC is the home of VOGUE), they will like my hat!” Sure enough, people on the street commented how much they loved it, and something similar was feature in VOGUE in fall 2016. Still loving my hat.
Artist as a toddler.
Every day, trying to find my way back to being this joyful.
And when I say fighter, I mean I stand up for love.
