Miss Rumphius

{photos by Ian; wearing H&M dress, Alex & Ani bracelet}

These were taken in Halifax, NS. The land of lupines. I remember this children's book I read when I was young. It was called "Miss Rumphius". It was about a lady who wanted to send cheers to the world so she went planting lupines in her neighbors' yard and everywhere she traveled. The lupines spread like crazy and so did happiness. Miss Rumphius died as a happy person. Now that I'm older, I realized that that is actually an act of an eco terrorist. Now excuse me while I go kill a colony of ants in my garage who are like "Hey Julie, can we please take the crumbs you dropped and forgot to vacuum up?" and I'm like "HELL NO GO DIE OF A HORRIBLE POISONOUS DEATH.".


  1. wow!!! wonderful shoot!!!! happy monday, dear)))) xoxo <3

  2. I am with you about the ants... I had a colony of them that I poisoned to rid of... now I wish I could get rid of the annoying fruig flies too...

    I love all the purple flowers and you look awesome in the fields of them ♡

  3. Hahahahaha! Love the little piece you wrote...I was like, "Oh that's a lovely tale..." and then I was like, "LOLOLOL...didn't see that coming!" Anyway, the shots are breathtaking! Love LOVE the purple flowers against the green and clean sky and then your white dress just makes every frame gorgeous!
