"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014"

You love to open the curtains and watch the cars go by in the morning time. I especially love when you get up on your tip toes so that you're eye level is just past the window sill. I've put capturing those tip toes on camera on my photo must list. These jammies are footy jammies and the only toe you can see is what we have come to call the hobo toe, the big toe on the right side that's poked it's way through the fabric. These are the type of things I always want to remember. 

Alt Summit Summer 2014 Recap

Friday, July 25, 2014

Alt Summit, what a whirlwind! It was a bit ago now but I just haven't had the time to do my thoughts and feelings on it justice like I wanted too. I still probably don't, but I wanted to get my main take-aways down and share some fun stuff with you all!

First off, the classes were really great. So informative, and full of details that I came to Alt to learn. 

I really enjoyed the key note sessions at Alt Summer 2014. I was so excited when I first learned Joy Cho would be giving the opening keynote. I love her blog and designs, and her new super cute baby bump!

Joy shared her journey through life, blogging, design, and gave some great tips along the way. Here's five things to remember/do Joy shared with us that I felt were so important:

1) You are not JUST a blogger
2) Figure out what YOU want to do
3) Research ways to get there
4) Knock on every (virtual) door
5) Do something that scares you!

I feel like #5 in that list was something that kept jumping out at me in every alt talk, class, lesson. So here is my #1 take away from Alt Summit:

Joy shared this quote in her talk and it really struck a chord with me. Being surrounded by so many creative and successful people really made me want to go after my dreams, which means doing new things, doing (sometimes) scary things!

If you didn't know from me talking about it like all the time, the other keynote speaker was Martha Stewart. MARTHAAA! She's so successful, so smart, and self made. I loved hearing her interview and I have a lot to say about it, so I'll probably be writing a post all about it because... I. Heart. Martha!

I've become a total pinterest addict again of late. I'm going to try to use it to do some of my own actual projects, but it's also just been inspiring, and let's be honest, fun when you're tired and laying in bed with your phone in your hand... (#momconfessions)

Anyways! I want some more awesome inspiration and would love to follow all of you. So leave your pinterest profile in the comments so we can follow each other asap! You can find me HERE. Ready, set, GO leave yours! Extra bonus for me if you leave some links to some other profiles you love for each pins and inspiration. 

52 Project Catch Up

Saturday, July 19, 2014

I've gotten seriously behind on my 52 project, so ya know, here is five weeks of catch up! For those of you with Eli fever *cough cough just my parents and siblings* you'll love it.

Staying hydrated on the bus in Zion National Park. 

I just love these chubby feet!

What Eli's face looks like most days when we play in the yard/garden. 

Playing baby cowboy at Calgary Stampede. Plus the fact that he kept the hat on his head long enough for me to take multiple photos, all of which make me melt

An Alaskan baby running around in his element. 

Happy 4th of July!

Friday, July 4, 2014

I hope you all have the best 4th of July! We celebrated a bit early because I'll be doing THIS all day, and because we live in Canada so we can really celebrate it whenever we want as it's not happening here. Missing home something sore today! We love you America!!!
