We travelled a lot over the holiday to spend loads of time with friends and family. We kind of live in the middle of everyone – we’re about an hour and a half (give or take) away from each group: both sets of parents, my sister & her husband (and daughter).. and a little further still from my grandparents. Christmas (and most holidays) have us travelling to catch up with both sides, and this year with Kasper was no different.
Hello Darlings! As promised from my last post, I have a basement update for you (because thats apparently all we’re doing these days). BUT I also have a great and exciting tidbit to share as well… so hang on to your hats.
This last week has been quite the adventure – very busy, but with all great lovely things. I was eager to begin the work week to really get the ball rolling because I had my first week-day off since coming back from ‘modified duty’ post surgery. Needless to say (but i’m obviously saying it anyways) I was PUMPED for my day off.
…but I had to get there first…
Hello Again darlings! Two posts in two days, I must be doing something right, eh?
This is going to be very light on words, but heavy on emotion and romance. I am happy to say that i’ve finished editing the video clips from the wedding my hubby and I attended two weekends ago. You can check out this post here to see a few photos that I took during the event. Otherwise, if you’re feeling ALL the feels, take a look-see at the video I created for my two amazing friends…
Hope you two darlings LOVE it — I sure enjoyed editing the footage. I really hope it helps you to remember all the magic that went into your big day. Thank you SO much for including us!!!
*Coming up soon: Another Bridal Shower!
Sometimes life can get ridiculously overwhelming. Like hella crazy where you don’t even think there’s time to catch your thoughts before they’re running all mad like again. Right now my life feels a LOT like that.
Blogging is a great outlet for all of those thoughts that get swirled around inside our heads when we’re overwhelmed and losing it a little bit. Today’s post will be an expression of thoughts – a way for my to purge my mind of a little too much turmoil.
Warning: NOT a short post today! haha is it ever??
Does anyone else feel like there is a push to do more/be more/have more?? That more often than not, we’re constantly pushing to accomplish more and more in less time? Quite frequently I feel like I have to give something up in order to take on a new adventure because there is just too much going on.
Last week I had the pleasure of a day off and it was all sorts of productive. I had planned a trip home (only about a 1hour and 30minute drive) to hangout with my mum and hopefully sneak in a surprise visit to my Grammie who lives another 30min past my parents.
My husband also had some vacation time overlapping my day off and a big part of me wanted to just hangout with him at home all day BUT we both needed to have some productivity in our non-work lives.
Many (many, many) years ago – waaaaay back in highschool, I scored a job at the local public library (“The GPL” as we liked to call it). It was the kind of job nerdy highschool kids coveted (or was it just me?). Working at the GPL was only possible while you were still in highschool and I started there in grade 10.
During the school year, the hours were enough such that you could walk over after school (maybe a 30min walk), work for two hours, then get a ride home from mom or dad. We would do the 2 hour shift twice a week, and one day a week we would each get an ‘evening’ shift (6-9pm). While I was definitely saving up most of my doubloons for post-secondary, there was one thing I REALLY wished to treat myself to: a digital camera!
