create, always.

Balzac's coffee shop in Distillery District, Toronto

Last week, I had the amazing opportunity of working with some fantastic and inspiring people, whom I have the honor of calling them my friends. I had the great priviledge of designing Sarah Walker's blog, The Curated House, not long ago (which I have yet to post about) and since then, we've connected in such a wonderful way.

With photographer Gabriela Hansen, videographer Phil Lindsay, Sarah, and myself, we adventured out to a few different locations to shoot photographs and a couple films, which will be posted on her blog - featuring Anthropologie clothing.

Creating something beautiful awakens the soul, truly.
Create, always.

Looking forward to posting more about this, and revealing what has been created on the span of those 3 days. Stay tuned!

P.S. What great pleasure to finally be able to document all that I do through an iPhone. You can now follow me on instagram at themelodyh.

to the country we go.

If you drive for a good 20 minutes on the street by my house, you find yourself surrounded by farm land, cows, hills, and fields. It's quite a lovely truth to know this is so close, and that there is so much yet to discover.

I accompanied my sister and a few friends on a photo shoot, and for lunch, we stopped at the Spirit Tree Estate Cidery in Caledon. We shared delicious sandwiches, tasted local apple cider, and explored the beauty of the store. And to finish off, we sat on the porch with our bakery purchases and ate them in delight.

Everything was wonderful, and I am grateful for days like these. I am grateful for the friendships that surround me, and for these road trips, for the sunshine and these fields. I am grateful.
