An announcement

We're having a baby! Baby's birthday is March 16, 2015



We are both incredibly excited as we venture into the unknown world of first time parents. Some advice I once received was that you will never "feel ready"...you just gotta jump in with both feet!

Life is going to be a bit chaotic as we move into our new home, get ready to bring home puppy AND baby. I wouldn't have it any other way! Everything I have been hoping for and dreaming about is coming into fruition...albeit all at once.

I hope to share some of my personal journey with you here on this space, and of course document for myself.

Wish us luck as we embark on this new chapter!

All grown up

Well, we made our first real, official purchase for our new home! A King size bed frame!

If the exclamations aren't any indication, I am super excited about this purchase. We have been talking about upgrading to a King forever, and will finally have the house and space to do so. Sleeping in a king is such a luxury and feels so "grown up".

We are trying to be a bit more intentional with furniture purchases for this house, making sure it is something we absolutely love and can work well into the future. I think this bed fits the requirements!

I am so in love with the classic design, brass nailheads and tufting.

I also have my eye on this dresser to round out our classic bedroom design. Dressers and nightstands have proven the hardest so far, and I have searched forever for something we can both agree on.
This one is simple enough that it appeals to us both, and I can easily swap out the knobs with some unique ones from Anthropologie.















 Purchasing new furniture is making our looming posession date that much more real. I can't wait to get in there and decorate!

Fall wish list


We've been experiencing a bit of a cool down in weather lately, which has me getting excited for Fall.

I think it truly is everyone's favourite season. It just makes you want to curl up on the couch with a blanket, good book and a chai latte. Not to mention the stunning backdrop compliments of Mother Nature. Oh! And Halloween!! (My favourite holiday)

Here are a few things I am looking forward to for this Fall season:




We also have some family photos planned for October with the awesome Brendan Nogue Photography. I can't wait to share them! The photos he took for us a few years ago in rural Alberta during the Fall are my favourite photos ever.
