summer love

The-Everyday-1After spending the past two years on and off in the UK, this was the first time since 2010 that we spent summer in Vancouver (BC) and what a beauty it was! We also decided to only accept referals for weddings this summer, which meant that our weekends were free for Farmers Markets, estate sales, and spending quality time with family and friends.

The-Everyday-2I had planned to start a series over here called ‘5 a day’ where I would post 5 images taken from the past week in one day. Most of the images would be from my phone though, as this is what I normally have handy. Thoughts? It would be similar to my ‘in the city‘ series from 2012 when we were living overseas and it would encourage me to get out and capture more snippets of the everyday.

Anyhow. Enough gabbing. Applications to the Got Craft? holiday show closed last Monday, so there has been a flurry of emails, worksheets, and gathering images for the upcoming look book and website update. It’s hard to believe it is already September, but I’m so excited for the Fall. It is my absolute favourite season! (pictured above – Monsieur Felix, one of the neighbourhood cats)



in the city ::

The past few weeks have been pretty hectic with new projects and finding a new-to-us flat. Vancouver, where are all your rentals?! There seems to be slim pickings lately and we both had sad faces after falling in love with a place near Oak Street only to find that it was gone within the hour even though the manager had told us there was no application to be completed and to just email him our interest. Apparently, somebody gave him a cheque, and that was the end of that – Ugh. I decided to broaden my search, so if anybody knows of anything between Fraser to South Granville from West King Edward North, please let me know!

On a more positive note, this weekend was filled with friends, salted chocolate chip cookes from the Gluten Free Epicurean (seriously addicted), a special one year old’s birthday, and me playing Dance Central on the Kinect for two and a half hours in my mom’s basement on Saturday night. Let me just tell you.. it has been a pretty sore Sunday!  Hope everybody had a fabulous weekend!
