Valentine’s Day 2019

It’s the day of loving! And this Valentine’s Day is a bit more special than others, because…

Truro Deuville and Yarmouth Clements' Engagement
Truro Deuville & Yarmouth Clements’ Engagement

…Truro and Yarmouth (of A Nova Scotian Way of Life) are finally getting married! 👬💗💍

They are the second couple of mine to get married, after Amherst and Springhill a few years earlier. In celebration of their upcoming marriage, several other (already) married couples – namely Amherst x Springhill and Port Hawkesbury x Stellarton – have gathered to witness this historic moment, as Yarmouth goes from being Truro’s long-time friend and boyfriend to his fiancé. This is also an historic moment for me, as I’ve never really drawn a couple in the process of proposing before; up to now, you’ve only really seen the aftermath (of sorts).

I chose the ruby for Truro’s ring so it could match his jacket, but the red colour also suggests love and passion, which is what today is all about. As if he’s opening up a box of his love for Yarmouth, I appropriately stamped some hearts that appear to be emerging from the box – and possibly even the ring itself. They’re planning to have their wedding in the summer on a beach overlooking the big blue sea.

This from Truro himself:

“Happy Valentine’s Day from me – and my soon-to-be-husband, Yarmouth!”

💛💙💗❤️👨‍❤️‍👨💍

Remembrance Day 2018 — Nov 11, 2018

Remembrance Day 2018

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. At 11.11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, an armistice was signed in a tank, putting an end to the battles which had raged around the world for four years.

Every 11th of November is a day to remember all the troops which fell during the war, and in all wars after, including World War 2 and more recent wars. The poppy is the symbol of remembrance, its bright scarlet petals said to represent the blood which was spilled as the soldiers fought for their – and our – freedom.

“At the going down of the sun and in the morning… We will remember them.”
