Amanda & Cory – Into the Woods

It was so much fun exploring Ball’s Falls Conservation Area with Amanda & Cory and their amazing Coordinator/Bridesmaid, Michelle! It was a cloudy, crisp, early morning. Perfect for snuggles. And it was pretty obvious how much these two love each … Continue reading

Kristy & Dave – A Family Affair

Spring At Home 2021

I love my back yard. It’s lush and green with bits of colour sprinkled all around it. Spring is a great time to just inhale the fresh, fragrant air and let it wash those winter cobwebs away. It’s been a … Continue reading

Cheyanne & Graeme – Something old, something new, something borrowed and something BLEW!

I wouldn’t have met Cheyanne & Graeme except for Covid.  They had to postpone their May wedding, due to the pandemic.  Luckily for them, their amazing caterers (RJ’S Catering & Event Planning) were able to open their beautiful, new venue … Continue reading

New Season

garden-5

Spring has sprung, as they say.  And with it the garden is coming back to life.

And we’re all finding ourselves in a new way of living lately.  The usual routines are put on hold.  Some are worried we will lose some of what we have become attached to.  I hope it helps us to slow down and see what is in front of us.  To stop all the rushing and stand still for a bit.  Listen to the birds sing and watch the butterflies.  Catch sight of a dragonfly hovering over a puddle.

Maybe you will get to know your neighbour.  Open your eyes and see the people around you.  Check on them and make sure they are ok.  And make sure you are ok too.  Do something to keep you ok.  Read a good book.  Try some new recipes. Whatever good this season offers you, take it with open hands and be grateful for small gifts.

And let’s be real.  There will be some hard stuff.  Remember … you’re not alone in this.  Ask for help if you need it.

I hope what I found in my garden today makes you smile a little and gives you a bit of hope.

Enjoy!
