A sensational evening at Dalvay by the Sea I have found my new happy place here on PEI. Beautifully aromatic German wines, scrumptious food and great company.

Lennox Island is home to a rich legacy of Mi’kmaq culture. In traditional Mi’kmaq culture, wigwams, canoes, clothing and many tools were fashioned from local supplies and still are today.
Quilt work on Birch bark is a hands on experience and is a beautiful gift suitable for any occasion! 📸 courtesy of Lennox Island First Nation

View from the barn (Prince’s stall is to the right). We can’t wait to get the handsome boy outside but for now he is loving the access to sunlight (which is a rarity these days- rain, rain, go away!) and fresh air.

Watch me grow! 💚
These saplings will grow up along side of 55 new kindergarten students starting in the fall 2019. .
Imagine how big these little trees will grow over the course of each child’s years of education.
The wind, waves and wilderness are never far away from Mill River Resort.

Today was our "first day of school" for #ChFest2019.
Tonight was our first read through of Anne of Green Gables.
An absolute dream coming true, I honestly have no words yet. I'll let you know when I've stopped crying. 🧡
“But really Marilla, one can’t stay sad very long in such an interesting world, can one?” 💗
Sadness is an emotion we do not need to evade, even more in our culture where only “positive emotions” are valued. 🧞♀️You don’t have to be positive all the time, but not let sadness consume you. 👤👥Share, reflect, analyze; embrace this feeling that will allow you to explore life. Sadness does not have as an aim to push you down, if not, why hasn’t the human race evolved until a point where no one feels sad? 🧐Allow yourself to feel sad when you need it, there’s nothing to be ashamed of. ❤️ .
I think what Anne was trying to say was that it’s beautiful to be sad, but it’s even more beautiful to have passed through it so you can appreciate life a different way🌈
Hope you find this as a nice message, share your comments if you like! 🙃
