"So can you understand? Why I want a daughter while I'm still young. I wanna hold her hand. And show her some beauty before this damage is done" - Arcade Fire

I've been listening to The Arcade Fire's new record a lot over the last few weeks. It reminds me a lot of growing up in Ottawa, the hoodrat things I got to do as teenager while most of my friends were many years my senior, all the shows I got to see, the friends I made and fortunately still have and just how special growing up in a city that is most definitely underrated really was. Ironically enough spending my teenage years around an Arcade Fire man probably plays a special role in why the record is so special to me (put the violins away.) Oddly enough it's making me think a lot of a little someone and the experiences she'll most likely have growing up in such an amazing city. It's hard to believe that over a year ago I was writing about one of my best friends having a beautiful little girl. Most of you have already met Adair if you've been following my blog or her lovely God Mother, Charlotte's blog. Everytime I check in with her mama to see how she is I'm constantly baffled by how quickly she's changing and how fast she's evolving into a little fashionista (she dresses better than most people I know...myself included.) I had to share with you all the cuteness that is Adair aka Trout aka my little niece. Can't wait to have my own little Trout someday!
