Sunday, April 27


marmie, canon digital rebel xti

A few years ago I started calling my parents every Sunday. Not sure why on that day, exactly. It just felt right. It has now become a sacred ritual. I wait until my chores are done or there is a nice, quiet break in my day. I snuggle up on the couch and dial their number. My husband is always shocked at how long we can stay on the phone.

What I find funny is that sometimes I'll be talking to my mother (marmie) for almost a few hours and then my father gets on the phone and I end up repeating everything again. A while ago I suggested they both get on the line but that so did not work as they both kept interrupting one another. I heart my adorable parents.

I just got off the phone with my marmie and my heart feels full. I felt like posting this photo of her because it always makes me giggle and smile. I took it last Christmas morning at their place. Her in her cute pink pajamas, sitting on her plaid bum pillow, drinking her morning brew. ; )

I just love seeing your photos of your Marmie. Such talent you have for capturing the essence of things, such power to be able to convey it with a picture and your words.

This warms my heart :)
and i love the colours of this picture. so warm and fuzzy!

I don't call my parents much, but today my dad is coming to pick me up to spend some time at their house. My dad doesn't like to travel, my mom does. So when she goes on holiday with a friend me and my dad spend time together, reading books and watching movies or old british comedies way into the night. Some good old father daughter time!

Your mummy is the cutest - this is such a sweet portrait of her (and she can be classed as an artist because she made you - FACT) x

Your mother's adorable! I call my mom "marmie," too. Couldn't stop after reading Little Women.

Your mum looks gorgeous!

I haven't dropped by for so long and it's nice to read and catch up on where you're at. I am so glad you have found a doctor who understands who you are and your journey and even more so, has found some good news for your to hold onto.

I'll be back soon and hope to hear more good news!
