All Dressed Up & No Where to Go

Comments Off on All Dressed Up & No Where to Go

In January when my friend Steph [@stefunny] was visiting we decided to plan a little styled shoot. Steph in from Manitoba but came out to visit her sister (and also my good friend, @adrienneneufeld). The three of us and Roxann [@mauve.hair.design] got together one rainy morning and one objective, get dressed up and take some photos. With all the rain, we needed a Plan B. Outside photos were no longer an option anymore. That’s when we thought about taking photos in a greenhouse.

I knew my friend Keisha [@lovinglittlesblog] had taken photos at Minter Country Garden in Chilliwack before, and they turned out stunning! With a quick message to Keisha, she set up for us to go that morning. Yay! Such a blessing! So thankful for Keisha’s willingness to support and connect us.

The morning there was pretty funny, swapping outfits in the back of the greenhouses, trying to avoid any regular shoppers from spotting. Steph did such an amazing job with the photos. So in love with all of them. But as you look at the photos, just remember, there was a lot going on in the background. ha! This shoot was hilarious, chaotic, wet, muddy and so much fun.

After we left the Greenhouse we decided to head to Cultus Lake to snap some photos there too. Even though it was still raining, we wanted to see what we could get. If our hair and faces got rained on we already knew we got some good shots at Minter Gardens. The photos at the lake were just as beautiful, I’ll be sharing those in another post soon.

Thanks so much to Steph [Steph Schulz Photography] for collaborating on the photos, our skirts were borrowed from Aniela [@aniela.ca], hair by Roxann [Mauve Hair Design], Minter Gardens [@mintergardening] in Chilliwack and for the beautiful florals by Bernadette [Sequel Events].

  • I had my wisdom teeth out today and I feel like this wall is rather fitting. I have such a hard time resting, staying home and doing nothing.... More awesome now please.

  • Got to hang with some goats and do a little toga today, with about 400 other people. Have you tried goat yoga? Would you??
  • There’s some new faces around here and it’s been a while since I did a little intro, an about me per se... just a little bit more random.

1. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life. Some may think it’s boring.. I’d call it loyal 😅 .. either way, I know a lot about Abbotsford.
2. If you hold your hand up, palm facing away from you. Pull your thumb back and see how far you can go. Mine can touch the back of my arm, it’s forever been my “talent”.
3. It’s been 5 years (almost to the day) since I started my blog. Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, then went to school to be a police officer, changed gears into business and marketing, graduated with graphic design and its led me to hear. I never had big goals or felt like I was on the right path, but motherhood and this space has brought me all the feels.
4. We’ve been looking for land to grow some flowers of our own. My husband grew up on a flower farm (both the peonies and iris’ pictured are from their farm), property prices can just go ahead and come down a little now.
5. I don’t know if the feeling of being done is for real.. like we feel like we are done having kids but I’d be fibbing if I said it doesn’t come to mind every now and again.

That’s all for now friends. Share a little something about you below — say hi if you are new hear and thanks for reading til the end 🥰🙌🏻
  • Throwing it back to the other day when I went for an evening dip with my beaver @float.eh — it was such a hoot heading to the beach with @juliechristine_xo and gave me a peek into how much fun this summer is going to be.⠀ ⠀
#ad As you can see these aren’t your typical floaties... or should I say @float.eh ’s 😉 They are proudly Canadian, made with quality in mind. You gotta check out their website and see what other fun Canadian designs they have. [ go to float-eh.ca or see my story highlights for the link ] 🇨🇦
  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.
