twenty seventeen

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had the very merriest of holiday seasons and enjoyed it all – the good and the bad. I gotta say, I’m happy to see the back of 2016. I’m not super into new years resolutions because I feel like if you’re going to make a positive change you should just do it when you’re actually ready and hopefully then it’ll actually stick. However! I am into the renewed sense of purpose that…

family

I’ve been really trying to keep up with blogging more because I honestly love having something to look back on for all of our adventures. It makes for such great memories. I think I always think I have to have some kind of occasion to document, but I’m going to try taking more photos of us at home, doing regular stuff. Because honestly, it’s usually those quiet moments between us that mean the most, and this is just such a…

storm season

Well, our end of the island and the lower mainland are battening down the hatches as we speak. Word on the street is that we’re bracing for some of the worst storms this side of 1999! Three in a row, a triple threat if you will. I’m hoping by ‘triple threat’ they mean like Zac Efron in High School Musical, but I’ve been aggressively corrected because apparently it means that there’s going to be like… you know, damage and stuff.…

home inspiration: part three

I ran, I hid, I’ve survived until now, but I think the cold that’s been hunting me down has finally caught up to me. We all knew it would happen, but I pretended that it wouldn’t. So here I am, snuggled in the world’s best, greatest, coziest, local-iest inspired (not a word but exciting) blanket, plaid slippers on my feet, tea in my mug, and my favourite candle burning. That all sounds nice, but mostly all I can taste is…

What we’re watching: episode one

Ah Netflix, my one true boo. Thanks for always being there for me and providing me with endless opportunities to watch new and exciting things. Of course, I don’t do that – I rewatch the same three things over and over because I don’t like change or surprise endings that make me cry. The actual one true boo (re: fiancé) constantly drags me kicking and screaming into new shows that (of course) I love, thus expanding my repertoire. So, what…

Sunday (Saturday) mornings

Good morning good morning good morning! I’m standing at our breakfast bar, a mug full of good coffee, breakfast on the hob, music playing, staring lovingly at my little plants soaking up the early morning sunshine. Life is so very good, gang. Last night, we had our house so thoroughly warmed by all of our wonderful friends. It’s not a big house, but when it’s packed with all your nearest and dearest, smiling and laughing despite being packed elbow to…

on building a home

I think I kind of forgot how tiring moving is. It seems like it should be obvious, but I have this habit of convincing myself that things are much easier than they actually are (could have worse habits, often sets me up for nasty surprises though) and have once again found myself surprised by how tired I am. I’ve always been a cranky old man, like, since birth. But let me tell you, as someone who likes to think of themselves as…

Revenge of the U-Haul

WE DID IT. We made it in. After a very long, very fun, and very rewarding day we officially spent the first night in our new home. It’s an interesting feeling, isn’t it? Moving from one place to another. There’s this weird stage of limbo where your belongings are half packed, strewn about rooms that no longer feel like they’re your own. The concept of moving is super exciting, packing up and heading some place new, getting to make somewhere…

Home inspiration, part two: a new home

That’s right, you heard it here first. A new home! We’re packing up and moving into a new beautiful little home and could not be more excited. That means all of this home inspiration will hopefully be put to good use and that my little basil plant will no longer have to struggle in my window sill with what pitiful sunlight I get. I am so jazzed. Our new place has got some darker colours, so naturally I’ve been scouring…

home inspiration, part one

We’ve got a lot of exciting things coming our way, which is amazing, but it can get really overwhelming in the same breath. Trying to imagine all the tiny pieces of our wedding come together can feel a lot like watching salad in the wind (yeah, picture it) and I’ve found so much joy in just taking some time to think without the pressure of having to do immediately after. Catch my drift? I’ve been loving gathering images & quotes &…
