(This is not a gender reveal. I wore this dress to a wedding on the weekend and was asked a couple times if we were having a girl, thanks to the hot pink bow. There is a 50% chance that we are having a girl, and a 100% chance that... Continue reading

What do you do on a scorching 33 degree day in Jasper? Go for a dip in Pyramid Lake! Jasper is usually such a temperate climate, always perfect for long days of hiking but after hiking Bald Hills all morning we were desperate for a way to cool off in... Continue reading

Two weekends ago we said goodbye to Jasper for a little bit. When we return we'll have a new, adorable little companion in tow. After spending 5 weekends hiking and exploring our favorite national park this summer, it was sad to leave knowing we didn't have a return date written... Continue reading

Our strawberry harvest from last week has been put to good use! Two buckets have been hulled and frozen to make jam with when the weather cools down, and one bucket has been tossed on top of granola and milk in the morning, yogurt in the afternoon, angel food cake... Continue reading

For the past 3 years my mom and I have celebrated her birthday by going strawberry picking! I don't know exactly what day strawberry season starts, but to me the day that strawberries are their ripest and plumpest is July 15th. In 2012 and 2013 we picked berries at Dunvegan... Continue reading

Husband and I spent another weekend in the woods. We drove down after work on Friday and had the best conversation during the four hour drive. It's so nice to mini-roadtrip every weekend to be able to catch up and re-connect after a busy week. I'm very .. (what's a... Continue reading

Things are getting pretty bumpy over here! There are less than 2 months left to go until we get to meet our little one and we couldn't be more excited. I sure hope baby likes riding in the hiking backpack because we have a lot planned that we want to... Continue reading

I love waking up every morning, throwing open the living room curtains and seeing how my little patio garden has grown! I water while drinking my morning tea then bid them farewell and take off on my bike to work. It's lovely. I love these plants. Maternal instincts/hormones are taking... Continue reading

We spent another Canada Day weekend at Candle Lake with family this past long weekend. Since it has been 2 years in a row is it now an annual trip? I hope so since it's so nice to get together with family that live far away and in such a... Continue reading

I've made a few varieties of granola bars for work/school lunches or backpacking trips, our favorite being these peanut butter granola bars. Although granola bars are so easy to whip up, I still buy more Kashi granola bars than I make them from scratch unfortunately. I'd really love to always... Continue reading

I take the saying that "the key to a man's heart is through his stomach" very seriously. My mom and I got to work in the kitchen the day before Fathers Day whipping up homemade treats for my dad, husband (!!!!) and father-in-law. We made delicious buttermilk biscuits to accompany...

Here's a few photos of how I showed off my 31 week bump at a friend's wedding on the weekend (and how my sweet husband agrees to dress to match me for such events): Have you ever heard the song "Something in the water" by Brooke Frasier? I first heard... Continue reading

Mom and I have nearly perfected our jam making skills and are ready to move on to other canning endeavors. Remember last summer when we first made strawberry rhubarb jam and crabapple jelly and sauce? I was so intimated by jam making and now we can whip it up in... Continue reading

I've been on a serious mission to de-clutter our home before moving at the end of the summer. As I empty bottles and containers of product from my bathroom I haven't been replenishing the stock. What I've found is that I can use coconut oil for almost everything skin-care related!... Continue reading

It's that time of year again and I couldn't be more excited! The patio garden has grown a bit every summer for the past 3 years and I can no longer fit any more pots around the edge(if we want to be able to access the barbeque haha)! My mom... Continue reading

We've entered the final week of the second trimester! I'm trying to get my ducks in a row now, making lists of what we need before baby arrives and countless to-do's, but haven't started nesting yet since we are not sure where our nest will lie! Husband snapped these photos... Continue reading

^^ We had the best time this May long weekend! We met up with 15 of our friends at the Wapiti campground in Jasper and camped from Friday-Monday. Also, we borrowed up our favorite furry friend from the in-laws and got crazy puppy-fever. Border Collie's make amazing hiking partners, their... Continue reading

You'll probably recognize these 2 lovebirds. I took their engagement photos and the getting ready photos for their wedding. They recently celebrated their first anniversary and asked for a photoshoot to remember it by! They came out of their first year of marriage looking blissfully happy and I feel very...

Over the course of our 2 week roadtrip, mainly only took photos in Ucluelet since we had been to Victoria and the Comox Valley in previous years and, as usual, had photographed the heck out of them. The main goal of the 3 days spent in Ucluelet was to hike... Continue reading

We explored some of the trail and beaches of the Pacific Rim National Park while we camped in Ucluelet, and Husband just couldn't get enough of that black rock. We wouldn't stay on a designated trail for very long before adventuring out nearer to the water, climbing and hopping over... Continue reading

^^ It just wouldn't be a roadtrip through the rockies without stopping at the Bear Paw Bakery in Jasper for breakfast! We hit the road at 5am and were certainly in need of a treat by the time we rolled through Jasper around 9! ^^ ^^ Saltspring Island is breathtaking... Continue reading

Husband captured these photos a week and a half ago while we were camping on Vancouver Island. We saw a lot of people that we love during our trip, but for three days in Ucluelet we just saw eachother and the ocean. It was blissful. Also, I obviously don't do... Continue reading

We just got home from an amazing road trip to the West Coast, where we were visiting family and friends, hiking, biking and exploring. During our trip we met up with some members of the college running team in Victoria and ran the TC10k. It's a hugely popular 10km road... Continue reading
