Hello 2014!

ImageSo, it has been a long, long time since I last blogged. At a certain point life got busy and I just wasn’t feeling as inspired as I should have been to be posting regularly so I thought a short little creative inspiration break was necessary… it soon turned into a long life changing creative break. In the past year life has been crazy, amazing, and eventful. Since the last time I put fingers to keyboard many things have changed! My husband and I are expecting our first baby soon… how soon? Pretty much any day now… I know, I know, you’re thinking this seems like the worst possible time to start blogging again- but the truth is I felt like it was a good time to ease back into it. I’m not saying I’ll be posting regularly but I feel like with all the changes in life right now it will be a nice little outlet for me to focus my extremely little “me” time on. Sharing things that make me happy is why I started this blog in the first place and I couldn’t be more happy with life right now. So, with all that being said I hope I can keep up with this and expand my little outlet into something better than I ever imagined!

night lights.


{Friday night in Gastown}

There is something extra special about pretty street lights at night…  Gastown’s old fashioned street lights stole my heart last weekend so I’ll be paying extra attention to all the sparkling lights this weekend (especially since there are so many holiday lights out now!). Hope you catch a glimpse of something special too!!

piazza san marco.

Other than the little ally ways and canals, the Piazza San Marco was quintessentially Venice to me. We spent a good amount of our trip there shopping, enjoying the architecture, and feeding the pigeons. Even though it was definitely the most crowded area of Venice it was the area I remember most. These photos don’t do it justice but I hope you can tell why I was smitten…


{the game if life- one of my favorites}

A while ago we did dinner and a game night with another couple. It made me so happy that I decided I need more games in my life and I think it’s time to incorporate them into more weekends. I hope you all find something that makes your weekend a little more fun! xx

Fall is in full swing and I am totally inspired by the leaves. I have even been wearing a lot of brown, red, and orange… I didn’t notice until my husband pointed out the fact that I had worn orange three days in a row. My thinking is- if you like it, wear it! So that’s what I have been doing. Plus, who doesn’t love playing in leaves- it’s so quintessentially fall!
