Denver… continued

So here is another post filled with landscape photos and no people from my trip a few weeks ago to Denver.  Thank goodness I went when I did, because they had some crazy flooding over the last week that has wreaked havoc on some of the gorgeous places I saw.  Not sure where my head […]

Weekend Wanderings in Denver (Part I)

I consider myself a very lucky girl to have been blessed with so many amazing friends in this lifetime of mine.   One of those amazing people is Neda.  She and I met on my very first day of classes at the University in Malaga back in October of 2005.   She was sitting two […]

New Friends, Old Friends, Family

On Saturday , after a long awaited ten years, I finally got to meet Riku for the first time!  I have known his family my whole life (since before I can remember, literally!), but Riku has moved about over the years and we are always seeming to miss each other.  It sure didn’t feel like […]

Sweet Scarlet

A couple of weekends ago, this amazing group of ladies named Sweet Scarlet  sang at the Kerrisdale Farmer’s Market.  It was a beautiful sunny day and as the ladies sang under a big, beautiful, shady tree, people stopped and gathered to hear their sweet voices as they rang out across the market. Those sweet melodies […]

Tea Party

Life has been such a whirlwind this summer that I honestly just looked at my blog the other day and realized I have only written five posts since Paris  and that was the end of May!  …  and can someone please tell me how the hell its already August tomorrow…like are you kidding me?! Anyway, […]

Oh Canada!

So a couple of weeks ago ( gosh time goes by too fast in the summer),  my dearest friend Stew officially became a Canadian citizen!   Its been 8 years in the making, but who knew on that 2nd day in Canada when I picked him up for a trip to the beach in April […]

The Beginning of Something New…

I first met Anita about 5 years ago at a party my old roommate and I were hosting. She and I  hit it off right away and have stayed in touch, in one way or another, ever since.  She is truly one of the nicest, most genuine people I have ever met. I remember, on […]

The Littles, lately.

I have said it before and I will say it again, I am so blessed to be an Auntie.  I love all my relationships with the Littles in my life, and cherish the time I get to spend snuggling, playing, photographing and sharing experiences with them. It’s such a wonderful blessing to watch children discover […]

Montmartre

We found ourselves in Montmartre on our second day of our trip and then found ourselves back there on our very last day before we came home.  We loved the charm and the quaintness of this part of Paris.  Despite my thoughts of taking the funicular up to the top, we braved it both times […]

Weekend Wanderings

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a proper post and for this I beg your forgiveness. It seems like I arrive home at the end of each day and words just fail me, so I flop into sweats and onto the couch and turn my brain officially off for the night.  That and ever […]
