Shared joy is double joy and shared joy over food is triple joy? Add wine and it doubles again!! Whenever I get stressed and overwhelmed or anxious, I tend to withdraw to my introverted side and stay home and shy away from seeing people. I think I do this because vulnerability is always so darn uncomfortable. But I’m finding that what I usually need the most is those spontaneous 45 minute phone calls to your best friend where you each vent about stress. And the dinners that go late because you can’t stop talking and laughing and the kids are being quiet in the next room so you don’t remember that their 5 minutes was up an hour ago 😂 Spring break so far has been exhausting (yes I know we are only 4 days in 😂) but so good for my heart! This past winter was challenging and I’m so excited spring is here!! 🌷🌱
Checked out the Cheam Lake Wetlands today! HOW HAVE I NEVER BEEN THERE?! It’s so gorgeous!!!! Seriously am planning my next engagement session there! 😍
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Marco! I’d seriously be lost without you. You’re an incredible Dad, an amazing husband and you devote your entire life to loving on us....and building some pretty sexy muscles! The dedication you’ve had to the gym and work in the last year has been so inspiring! You also put up with me taking sleeping photos of you (and for anyone who knows Marco well, he can fall asleep ANYWHERE and often so the collection is large....I considered a sleeping collage but it’s his birthday so I’ll be nice and just post my fav!) and applying Snapchat filters to your face when you don’t realize it. 😂 We love you so much!! ❤️
Happy FIRST BIRTHDAY “Baby Dax” (as the kids call you!) I can’t believe you’re one!! I’ve loved watching your parents be parents and how much they love you and how much you adore them! I love being your Aunty so much! ❤️ we just gotta work on not being terrified of Uncle Marco 😂
Choosing a photo to post is easy. I then stare at the blank caption box for way too long trying to think of something clever/meaningful/witty or intelligent to write and I always give up. So here’s a sunset over the @abbotsfordtulipfestival 😍#nailedit
WE FLEW!! 🚁 Today was amazing!! We spent over 3 hours at the Girls Fly 2 event at the Abbotsford Airport!! We registered for a free helicopter ride and it was by far the coolest thing we’ve ever done together!! Luca, Marco and my Dad walked around and we joined them after to check out the tanks, airplanes and super cool exhibits!! It was such an incredible event and we can’t wait to go back next year!!!
22 years ago today we lost my Papa. It makes my heart ache that he never got to meet Marco and the kids. That he wasn’t there to dance with me at my wedding. That he never got to finish teaching me French. And mostly that he died before I could grow taller than him. 😂 He was 5’6 and he’d always joke how I was catching up to him and call me shorty. He passed away when I was 5’5. (I’m currently 6’1!) Today we met at the river for our annual walk to his bench on the Vedder. ❤️ The bench can’t hold everyone anymore, it can’t even hold all of his Great Grandkids together! He would have loved today ❤️
Summer mountain road trips 😍
