I’m sure I’ve mentioned that we go to A LOT of weddings. 2015 is no exception. Our friends got married at the end of June in the Okanagan, on what turned out to be a record-breaking heat wave! Luckily I wore my Megan Nielsen Cascade skirt to help beat the heat.
We just got back from a 5-day trip to Scottsdale/Phoenix Arizona for a friend’s wedding. I made my own dress, as well as a vest for my hubby, and a button-on bow tie for my little dude.
Family photo at our friends’ wedding We’ve had amazing weather for most of the summer here in the Sea-to-Sky corridor. It’s been nice, but having a baby definitely changes your outlook on things. Instead of rejoicing at the +30C temps, I began cursing it, knowing that it would be next to impossible to put the […]
It’s that time of year again here in Canada… the crisp chill in the air, days are getting shorter, the leaves are beginning to change colour. Autumn is on it’s way! My husband brews his own beer from scratch, and is quite good at it. He planted hops at his parents house a few years […]

[Wow, two posts in one day!] The third and final wedding of 2011 that I was in was for my cousin’s wedding this past weekend in Edmonton, AB. This was the only wedding where all the bridesmaids had the same dress. Photo credit: Marina Storme I emailed my cousin pretty much as soon as I […]
The jet-lag has almost worn off, but we are back home in Squamish after spending 10 days on Canada’s beautiful East Coast. We literally travelled across the entire country! The only way it could’ve been further is if we lived in Tofino, BC (instead of Squamish) and were travelling to St John’s, Newfoundland (instead of […]
My beloved sister-in-law got married over the weekend. Again. To the same man. I should explain… They were married two years ago in a civil ceremony in England, where they live, but renewed their vows near the bride’s hometown in BC, Canada this past weekend. My wonderful brother-in-law’s family and friends came over to Canada […]
My hubby is playing in a slo-pitch ball tournament on Canada Day long weekend and his team entered the “costume division”. The theme is “Cavemen”, so he asked me to make him a costume. No problem. So a few weeks ago I placed my very first online fabric order at Fabric.com, allowing several weeks for […]
