Made it back to Johnston Canyon....and this year I remembered to put a memory card in my camera 🙌🏼
The best part about your best friend being your second shooter? You get to bring her on work trips :) #allthewine
This guy puts his family first every single time. He plays catch whenever asks, puts a pause on work to paint Sophie's fingernails. He learned how to braid hair and he's working on being patient if Luca goofs around a bit while playing sports 😂 But most of all, he's been the one behind our unique lifestyle. With both of us being self employed and not wanting to depend too heavily on daycare, we split work and parenting and housework 50/50 and he ROCKS his part. I love how much the kids get to have him in their lives and the adventures he takes them on. He's our hero and he inspires everyone who meets him. We love you Marco! Happy Fathers Day!
Just over 3 years ago I took a before photo. I had no set date of when the after photo would be taken, I just knew that one day I would get to a place where I was proud of my body and semi-confident in a bathing suit. Yesterday I finally took that photo...(Swipe if you want to see the before and after! ⬅️) 3 years ago, I emailed @dhprins (the greatest strength and conditioning coach you could ever ask for) and asked if he would make me a workout plan. We are now 7 plans in, and I have learned so much about my body, strength training and what my body can do. Dave doesn't just answer a question, he educates you in a way that makes you excited about training and you want to go workout more. It's magic I tell ya! Then 12 weeks ago, I started a healthy eating plan with @jenn_473. I did 4 weeks of strict macro counting and 8 weeks of an @rpstrength cut and lost 15lbs. It was the strictest meal plan I'd ever followed and I am soooo proud I actually stuck to it! The increase in energy, in quality of sleep, in strength while training and overall health far surpass anything I've ever tried! This is already the longest post ever, but I'm so passionate about this. Lifting heavy WILL NOT MAKE YOU BULKY! I weighed 186lbs in my before photo and I weigh 183lbs in my after photo. And I lift heavy. I can now squat my body weight, deadlift allllmost 1.5x my body weight and I still only have baby muscles....although my butt is growin' 😍 The biggest lessons I've learned is the importance in putting your health first, finding a form of exercise you can fall in love with, and that Dave is right it's not a sprint, it's a marathon. Training takes time. Body changes take time. It truly is a lifestyle not a quick fix. Don't trust anything that says it'll get you bikini ready in 6 weeks. Treat your exercise times like important appointments and don't ever let anyone ever tell you girls don't do that or girls shouldn't look like that what the heck are we supposed to look like?!
When your best twin tower and Amazon woman gets you matching tshirts for Wonder Woman 😍🙌🏼 . . *also I may never curl my hair again haha it's a talent I do not have 😂
Finally blogged my winter Banff engagement session (@justinerussophotographer) and came across this one! Gosh I love those red chairs!! Can't wait to be back for another engagement session in 2 weeks!!
My roses are open 😍 I feel like such an adult this year, fertilizing my plants, lining our patio with pots and transplanting plants to organize our garden better. Having fresh flowers on the table every day is definitely my favourite perk! And being an expert level plant killer, I feel extra accomplished for even keeping them alive! 😂
I tried for a solid 5 minutes to get a good one of us smiling...and then I gave up cause this showcases us far better than any smiling pic ever would 😂 #mycrazies
