Is the zombie apocalypse among us?
No, but what a cool theme for a bachelorette party!

~ Hope ~ Courage ~ Strength ~ Love ~

I am having a hard time with what to say. To say this mother of two was an inspiration to me is an understatement. I am in utter awe of this woman. AND I don't even really know anything about her. I only met her once, on this day..
 I know for sure that she loves her children and that she is a SURVIVOR. She has survived a battle with cancer, a double mastectomy, a devastating electrocution, she has survived life so far.
 I can only imagine what life has looked like to her. Striding through and taking on each challenge that she's faced all while taking care of her kids. One day at a time. And she's STILL SMILING. And LAUGHING. And LOVING. AND ENCOURAGING OTHERS to live life, smile, love, breath, fight. Live.
She's inspiring other women to keep fighting and to keep moving forward. She inspired me to take one day at a time, to be in the moment, to love completely, to be understanding, to not 'sweat the small stuff', to not take any moment for granted, including the hard horrible ones and she has taught me to listen. Sometimes we just need someone to talk to, understand, and not say a word. Just listen. 

 She is beyond beautiful and radiates love when she's around her two favourite people. It was amazing to meet her and the loves of her life.


We don't know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice we have.

I loved you from the start

My precious little baby
I loved you from the start

you are a tiny miracle
laying closely to my heart

each day I feel your presence
each day you quickly grow
each day your heart beats softly
as I could only know
So I'll keep this in a special place
and remember each year through
of this special time in my life
In the months I carried you

I take you

I take you 
to be my best friend,
my faithful partner and my one true love

I promise to encourage you & inspire you
and to love you truly through good times and bad

I will forever be there to laugh with you


to lift you up when you are down
and love you unconditionally
through all of our adventures in life


Love is like playing the piano

Love is like playing the piano. 
First you must learn to play by the rules, 
 then you must forget the rules 

and play from your heart.

"Together is our favourite place to be..."

"When we move with love, together we can move mountains"

What a great day we had at the Othello Tunnels. Not only is the view spectacular, but walking through the old giant train tunnels was pretty amazing!

 Seeing as how I love to take pictures of other people and their families I often have the bright idea of taking pictures of my very own kiddies. And although it seems to be tons of fun for them, it s t r e s s e s  me out! You see, other peoples normally rambunctious, wall bouncing, tantruming kids will usually listen to me. I'm a total stranger to them, they don't know how much they can get away with quite yet. And my kids are no different. BUT when mom is trying to take a nice picture, where they're all looking, all smiling, all getting along. I m p o s s i b l e.

Well, nearly impossible. I do have a handful here that I love...

and when the weather turns warm-ish, I'm sure we'll attempt to do this again... ;)
