Alexandra Amélia Tremblay  ♡ Artiste ♛ BFA ✎ Military History ♰ U of Manchester ♞ Canadienne Française ☾ Twin ☼"The sacred rose garden in my heart is the motherland's blue sky"✪

Currently incredibly overwhelmed with school work, and stressed as hell. So here’s an old and unrelated photo of an untroubled me and the plane of my dreams...cuz let’s be honest, she’s the prettiest in a the lands and makes me incredibly happy 💋💎🖤✈️ #destress #fuckit #imstressed #whitehair #love #militaryhistory #military #freak #nerd #dealwithit #usaf #b17 #favorite #oldsoul #forever #beautiful #vintage #filter #plane #ww2 #flyingfortress #aluminumforcast #springbank #yyc #calgary #alberta

This is the life for me. I’ve recently realized that no one is worth stressing over, and that it is ok to leave those people behind. I’ve found myself in the appreciation of life...with friends who encourage me, the history I walk on, the art I contemplate and the wine I drink. I can’t wait to be reunited with @labellekatrina in Paris to keep the adventure going ✌🏼🍷🇫🇷🖤 #poser #rant #truefriends #art #islife #creative #pullyourselftogether #life #isbeautiful #picture #happy #bff #worthliving #europe #france #paris #priceless #winelover #frenchatheart #iamfrench #citoyennedumonde #adventure #travels #love #oldsoul

I once heard one of my favourite historians say at a WWI conference “What we do as historians is important”. I was 25 when I heard him speak and had recently completed my first university degree. Pursuing and starting university all over again was just daunting, but what this historian said was strangely all the inducement I needed to go back to school and pursue my passion for military history. Yesterday November 11th 2018 marked the centennial of the armistice of the First World War. At the root of it all, it is a struggle being so passionate about something that is consistently viewed with much confusion, and constantly surrounded by loss and pain, but I will always believe that what I do, and others like me do...is crucial. If we destroy our history, we destroy our achievements, as if they never existed. What we are faced with is the final and lasting values that wars such as The Great War has hopefully taught us. I believe we must guard all we have inherited from our long and troubled past, create a trying present, and preserve a foreseeable future. That’s why I will never forget all that has been sacrificed before me, as it summons to my defence my intellectual and spiritual resources, as strenuous it might be. Facing it and teaching it for it to not be lived again, is worth it in itself. As long as I breathe I will never forget 🥀✌🏼💌🎖#shpeel #remember #poppy #passion #militaryhistory #socialhistory #love #neverforget #sacrifice #military #history #important #pastpresentfuture #respect #flanders #somme #verdun #vimyridge #passchendaele #commonwealth #ww1 #armistice #100years #forever #memory #veterans #thankyou #lestweforget #whencallstheheart #weallhaveourthings

To bad the past is only a place of reference and not a place of residence, because y’all would know where I’d be if it were. I have officially made Manchester my new home. The historian in me is in love with England already. You can be sure I’ll be taking it all in. How lucky am I? Give me all your suggestions, I’m sure you all know what I’m into🖤🇬🇧🙈✌🏼#love #history #school #exchange #student #passion #england #manchester #newhome #yorkshire #york #shambles #harrypotter #diagonalley #nerd #beautiful #destination #adventure #rainydays #everyday #forever #whencallstheheart #lovethepast #aintnothinglikemebutme

I was fortunate a couple months ago to visit the beautiful little port town of Dieppe in Normandy. This town may mean nothing to you, however historically, it is of great significance to us as Canadians. Yesterday was a big day for my Regiment, Kings Own Calgary Regiment @kingsowncalgary , as we celebrated the 76th anniversary of the disaster at Dieppe. I won’t forget the sacrifice of all 3 367 Canadians who became casualties during this raid, 46 being of our own with 138 taken as prisoners of war. Meeting two of the men who survived the raid and the POW camp yesterday was a total fan girl moment. Always such an honour to represent and work for and with such an amazing regiment. Onward, always 🇨🇦🎖✌🏼🇫🇷 #Dieppe #Normandy #France #Canadian #lestweforget #alwaysremember #kocr #14tharmytankregiment #calgaryregiment #tanks #proud #canadianhistory #militaryhistory #passion #dealwithit #disasteratdieppe #operationjubilee #sacrifice #onward #CAF #canadianarmy #army #military #ww2 #historyfiend #churchill #markIII

A poppy is to remember, so lest we forget. I’ve come to realize that the things we are passionate about are not random, but they are our calling. Some people are confused with my passion for military history and my connection to the past..but let me clear, I am not crazy, I am only bat shit passionate. That is all. Lucky to say that at least @dani_drefko understands me. We make a dangerous pair you and I 🖤🥀🎖🖤 #bff #partnersincrime #mydrawings #sketch #cametolife #art #linedrawing #minimalist #blackandwhite #tattoo #forever #militaryhistory #poppy #lestweforget #history #love #passion #historynerd #warandpeace #neverforget #ww1 #100years #centenial #veterans #respect #canadianhistory #remembrancedayeveryday #1918 #2018

Your typical 90s fool...with no game. If Dostoevsky said “The cleverest of all, in my opinion, is the man who calls himself a fool at least once a month”, I must be pretty fucking clever 😈🖤😎✌🏼#life #always #silverlining #love #beyourself #90skid #forever #loveyourself #aboveall #womensdayeveryday #slay #beauty #rbf #lovemeorleaveme #summertime #summergames #nobra #noboobies

I get it from my mama and grandma of course. Michelle Obama couldn’t have said it better when she said, “I was surrounded by extraordinary women in my life who taught me about quiet strength and dignity”. I have the greatest idols and examples to look up to, and I only wish to be as strong, independent, beautiful and intelligent as these women in the future! Mon cœur est à eux pour toujours 👩‍👩‍👧❤️🙌🏼🦁#love #amour #beautiful #makemamaproud #mesfemmes #lavieestbelle #french #canadian #quebec #proud #family #iseverything #forever #strength #michelleobama #examples #womensdayeveryday #lifeiswhatyoumakeit #whendidigetchubbycheeks
