Comments Off on Christmas Family Photos | 2017

This year has no doubt been our fastest year yet. Possibly because of having three kids and also possibly because it was the first year that I freelanced all year long. I feel like our family has gone through so much since last year. We have grown through ups and downs and seen so much change in each of the kids. Ezra started grade three, Sophie is in her second year of preschool and Evelyn hit pretty much every major milestone (walking, talking, all the things). For the past three years we have had Christmas Family photos taken by Fraser Valley Photographer E Fraser Photo. I find it to be such a lasting way to reflect on the year.

This year our photos were postponed due to the rain and rescheduled. However, on our next scheduled date the weather was crazy again but we still decided to go for it. Thankful for our photographer, Erin Fraser, who was totally up for it and recommended the new photo location. As much as I loved the Christmas tree farm photos last year and the year before, I love that these photos can be printed and up all year round without being too “holiday”.

Thank you Erin Fraser Photography for capturing our real life moments. Let’s just say Evelyn was not in the mood for photos, but it didn’t matter. Erin captured some very precious moments and some couples photos that give me all the heart eyes. Thankful for this family of mine and so excited for making memories in 2018.

Last year we took photos like this with Erin and we had to do it again. This year, James is much less visible then last year.. and I think it might also be the last year he’ll be able to hold all three. Might have to try it again next year and see. (Photos from last year)

  • A few months ago when I got my wisdom teeth removed it put me in a work out rut. I felt super unmotivated and just blah. Really, mostly just felt sorry for myself. Sounds silly, maybe. But I was thinking about it recently and how that’s kind of continued to linger to the last couple months. I weighed myself the other day (we don’t own a scale so I don’t weigh myself often) and that was a bit of a kick in the butt, I realized that yes I wasn’t feeling good about myself, yes I’ve gained a decent amount of weight, and yes that aligns with the less positive thinking, less motivation and large lacking of exercise.

I feel funny writing this out but I think it’s important to talk about. I shared the times I’ve felt motivation, excited and energized to get to the gym, attend a workout or yoga class, but I also want to share that things happen.

We can have good days, good months, even good years but then something might happen that changes the course of our daily routine.

I don’t think I’ve failed, I’ve just lost track of the healthier lifestyle that was making me feel noticeably better. So here I am writing things out, to hopefully connect with you all on a level of understanding.

Maybe you are feeling the blah. Uninspired, low energy and making excuses for yourself. Here’s my little motivation to say, nothing changes unless you do. If you want change BE THE CHANGE.

At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself on repeat this week, in hopes to snap out of it.

  • It’s been six years since we lost our good friend, to me he was very much like a brother. Genuine, caring, funny, and such a family guy. This weekend we took time to remember. My heart feels heavy, I’ve never been good with words during times of grief but this weekend encouraged me that lots of words aren’t always needed. Our actions and the intentional moments mean so much. #domliveson
  • He makes me smile, the real full mouth all the teeth smile.

  • It's a crazy thing what can happen when you start doing the things you love but also might scare you. I've been creating content on this space for five years as this past year has presented some of the most incredible opportunities. This latest one with @coquitlamcentre has been so fun! Excited to share that I am their next and final 'Girl In Focus' -- head over to their feed to see the first video that was created.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Also, sending a big kiss out there for all of you, for being encouraging, inspiring and simply for just being you. If there's something on your heart that you have been wanting to start, but you feel like you don't know how.. maybe you are scared.. maybe you are worried of judgement. Trust me, it's worth putting all that aside and just trying. Just starting. Because in all honesty, starting is always the hardest part.⁠⠀

PS my outfit is from @rw_co, shoes @callitspring at @coquitlamcentre — I couldn’t leave without them! #girlinfocus #workingit #stylebyCQC
  • Who snacks more, you or the kids?
.
I used to think it was the kids, but since getting Invisalign I've realized more and more how much I love snacking, as I am willing to take my liners in and out every time. #worthit

A new snack I've been trying out from @patiencefruitco are their Active Blends, my favourite blend being the Seasalt & Pepper. Check out my stories to see all three flavours. *sponsored #patiencefruitco
