Photography 365 Project: (Day 144 – Life)

Life is old photographs served best with a side of snickers and groans.  Life is freezing time in your mind and soaking the present into your pores.  Life is unleashing the imagination onto the...

Photography 365 Project: (Day 143 – Date Night)

Friday night was date night.  We had some other plans that got cancelled early that morning, so we quickly regrouped and planned a fun evening together.  The new X-Men movie was coming out that...

Photography 365 Project: (Days 141 – 142)

The past couple days have not been my favourite.  Around noon on Wednesday I started to feel a headache coming on.  I just ignored it and continued work throughout the day.  By that evening...

Photography 365 Project: (Day 140)

I am a self-admitted internet addict.  It’s how my life goes round.  It’s how I stay connected with so many friends across the globe.  It’s how I chat with my husband throughout the day...

Photography 365 Project: (Days 131 – 139)

  Sunday, May 11, was our first day home after our trip.  We had done most of our chores the previous night, so we enjoyed some relaxing time before getting back into “real life”.  We...

A Perfect Sunday

Today was a great day. After church we went out for my first Mongolian BBQ, followed by a trip to our favourite Gelato shop, that has tons of dairy-free options for me.  After it...

Welcome to Our Home :)

I am REALLY appreciating being home after our trip.  I think it’s a home we will live in for a good number of years yet, but I know it won’t be our forever home.  Unless,...

The Great Adventure – Day 24

This morning we slept in as commanded, and got out of bed around 10:30.  As soon as Grandpa saw us up, he started cooking bacon, eggs and home-made hashbrowns.  We also woke up to...

The Great Adventure – Day 23

Leaving Calgary just after 8am put us in the Rocky Mountains by late morning, but their towering peaks were blanketed in rain and mist.  We tried to make up time after stopping for coffee...

The Great Adventure – Day 22

Today we drove from Saskatoon to Calgary – a familiar trek that we do at least once every other year (and sometimes more often), but usually in the snow.  It was easy driving on...

The Great Adventure – Day 21

The Great Adventure – Day 19

Monday morning we got up nice and early – “farmer early”.  Okay, it was only 7:00, but for us Westerners that equates to 5:00!  We rolled out of bed, threw some clothes on, and...

The Great Adventure – Day 18

Sunday morning we woke up and checked out of our Best Western with it’s super unique layout.  We grabbed our free breakfast and hit the road for another long day of driving.   We...

The Great Adventure – Day 17

Today we turned the car around and started to head West.  This is definitely the longest holiday I’ve ever been on, and I’m starting to miss my bed.  I lasted until about Day 15...

The Great Adventure – Day 16

I’ll try and keep the typing in this post short to offset the 50+ photos that ended up in it! Today we reached the East Coast!  We have now travelled coast-to-coast across America.  My...

The Great Adventure – Day 15

  Today was thankfully less eventually than the previous day.  We woke up in our nice hotel room after staying up way, way too late.  In my defence, 3:15am here is really only 12:15am...

The Great Adventure – Day 14

A few things happen when you get photographers on the other side of the lens.  Cooperation is not one of them. Nick was patient enough to let us boss him around while he grabbed...
