Harbourfront. Most Torontonians think of skating. After all these years, when I think of Harbourfront, I always think of the artists. Real artists. People who make creativity their life. Studio spaces and hallways filled with interesting and thought provoking work.
I remember a field trip in elementary school when we all took a turn at the pottery wheel. It heavily influenced my life.
Today I walked in the doors and the first thing I saw were two artists creating a mural. What creative moments from childhood influenced your interests as an adult?
Ok, son 😍 Can I just take a moment and say how proud I am of this boy? Officially fully potty trained as of 1/1/19. We’ve had a bit of a struggle with him but he has grown so much in the past few months and MOMMY IS PROUD. #allthehearteyes side note: can’t wait for his hair to grow out, I miss that little side comb hairstyle 😍 #mommasboy#ryanemmanuel
This has been a regular scene these past few weeks. Our living room taken over by sleepovers. Late nights, giggles and fun times. Our favourite game so far has been to draw a portrait of the person next to you while in the dark, so funny!
This little princess inspires me daily...
She is such a 𝚍𝚛𝚎𝚊𝚖𝚎𝚛, always talking about what she wants to be when she grows up and it’s always changing (which I love)! — One minute she wants to save animals, another minute she wants to be a ballerina. •
She has taught me so much about dreaming. The sky is the limit to her, but often times I find myself limiting myself when it comes to my goals and dreams. If only we could spend a day looking through a child’s eyes... 💫
What did you always want to be when you were younger?
As I child I loved star gazing, I was amazed by horses and their beauty. I loved looking out our big window and watching kids play in the sun and smelling the rain. Looking at this room proves to me that my childhood still lives inside me. It shapes who I am today. It inspires me to see things with a hidden eye that only I’m aware of.
I pray for a safe and happy childhood for all our children, Ameen ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
