Photo Challenge - Day 1 - Me (at 8pm)

This is the first day of the I Heart Faces September photo challenge. Such a great excuse to whip my camera out every day!

8:00 is when I take my deep breaths. The little guy is tucked in, and Chris is working night shift tonight.
I should be unpacking, but I'd rather be enjoying my favourite spot in the new house.
Books + tea = the best de-stressing tools I know!

Day 1 - Me (at 8:00pm)

September Photo Challenge

I'm a September baby, so this month has a special place in my heart.
What better time to start a photo challenge?

I'm giving this challenge from I Heart Faces a try:

I'll post my first photo tonight!

Peapod Necklace DIY - Update

This is an updated post from 2012, with new pictures!
I made this one with turquoise beads because I love the silver/turquoise combo. Green and amber look beautiful too!

"Make a Splash" Photo Challenge

After a few days of rain, we woke up to this amazing sunny day and headed to the water park! Just in time for I Heart Faces latest photo challenge: Make a Splash. I love these challenges - normally I would never take my camera anywhere involving water (way too protective of my dear camera) - but I'm so glad I did, and that I got to capture some fun moments!  

See more photos from our water park day here!:

Sister Time.

The countdown begins...
Sawyer and I have been staying with my dad and sisters while Chris has been away.
With less than a month to go, I'm going to miss these gorgeous girls!

Here's a little "sister shoot" we did earlier this summer. So much sugar, sun and silliness.

Happy Canada Day!

As we get ready to move, I'm realizing that this will be our last Canada Day at Waterfront Park! 
All my favourite July 1st celebrations have been here, and I'm happy that Sawyer is old enough to enjoy it too. Happy Birthday Canada!
