I know I shouldn’t be thinking any Valentine’s quite yet! But because I’m such a huge lover of hearts and LOVE, it’s hard not too! Here’s just a little tease!
Hope you’re 2014 is off to a great start! So far I’ve been stepping back a lot and reflecting on the past year and the year to come. I really want to make 2014 count. Thanking God for all the wisdom, health, wealth and of course my favourite- love. The blessings pouring in are all thanks to Him! Hope you can take some time to step back and map this year out! … & in the mean time get a little distracted with V-day coming up!

We hope you like it! Check back tomorrow for unpublished photos here on my blog!

I had the huge pleasure of taking about how to go about creating a Bar Area in your space without using an actual bar cart - on The Every Girl last week!
If you didn’t get a chance to see make sure to click over! Talking about three things: 1. Mimosa bar on shelves, 2. Tom Collins on a DIY chalkboard and 3. Fold in, fold out pop up bar! Hope you like it!

I’m so so so excited to share our winter family photos that the oh so talented Christie of Christie Graham photography captured! We wanted a winter wonderland look to make it extra Christmasy, but as every Vancouverite knows that’s not easy! We’ll be lucky with two snow days in the city! So up to Cypress Mountain we drove… again no snow! Christie found us the perfect little spot (patch) of snow and we there you have it (above). I couldn’t have be happier! Christie captured our little family and the joy Liam brings to our life so so so well. I’ll cherish these photos forever. Thank you Christie!
Hope you can grab some inspiration for your family “winter wonderland photos”.
