My pretty new @vintage.origami.weddings sofa. My staff and I alway have fun naming the inventory but this one I’m going to name after a lady in our life and in our community. This wonderful woman continues to inspire and push us for a life of healthy living both emotionally, mentally and physically. She is brilliant, humble, wise, disciplined, generous, thoughtful and peaceful. If you know her you would agree with me that she makes this world a better place. This couch is a little boho and a whole lot of warmth and beauty so her name will be ‘Dewi’ after this beauty @dewipeters. Thanks to @tarapeach for the stunning photo at the lovely @sanctuarygardens. Thank you Dewi for your gift of friendship!
I have the most amazing group of girlfriends. We get together every other week to drink our fav @redroosterwine wine, laugh together, cry with one another and discuss real life topics that require our vulnerability and realness. The support, encouragement and inspiration from listening to each other’s stories is incredible and life changing. Lately we’ve been touching on the subject of SELF LOVE and this is a topic that I know we could all use a little more of. I know I personally denied myself of it because I didn’t think I had the time or didn’t want to spend the money or more than that I’m realizing I denied myself of it because I didn’t think I had earned it. I had an ‘ahhhhaaaaaa’ moment when I realized that self love wasn’t my presumed solution of holidays, massages, pedicures or bubble baths (all those luxuries that are advertised to us that say they are the definition of self love). For me the self love remedy is my girlfriend time with my Saskatchewan besties, spontaneous road trips, volunteering, theatre movie nights with my husband, board game evenings with friends and hiking with the dogs on sunny afternoons. Whatever restores your soul, brings the sparkle into your eyes and rejuvenates your spirit THAT IS YOUR BEST REMEDY of SELF LOVE!! Thankful for my amazing girlfriends at @wildfire_women, @thebookofmolly, @jayna_lowe. Thx for the photo @jennymckinneymua, @tarapeach. An amazing event is being hosted at my own fabulous gym @twpfitness on March 2nd to discuss this exact topic of Self Love. @jenniferhodderphotography will be taking photos and there’s a panel of powerful woman sharing their real stories. Can’t wait for you to meet the inspirational @drlaurentomkins. See you there ladies! Sign up at @wildfire_women with proceeds going to @mamasformamas. If you spend the time loving yourself (in the most effective way) the product of that rejuvenation will pour into those around you. So discover what the definition of self love is for you personally.
Perhaps it is the process of planning/shopping/dreaming that we find enjoyment in even more than the actual trip/purchase/end result that we strive for. Maybe we would live life differently if we recognized that there is pleasure in the pursuit, that there’s enjoyment in just day-dreaming and contentment can be found in the mere journey. Lots of good conversations Erik and I have had in our recent drives. Tropical themed party by the lovely @jillian.harris for the beautiful mama @sammythomp with stunning @societyfloral and @vintage.origami.weddings decor captured by the talented @mackenziejanephoto at Jillian’s abode.

It might be snow capped mountains in Kelowna right now but I’m day dreaming about our tropical themed sip and see @jillian.harris hosted for her beautiful cousin @sammythomp. @vintage.origami.weddings were thrilled to be part of the festivities with @societyfloral and her gorgeous tropical florals. Those beauties @jillian.harris, @mindyacrawford & @shaymerritt created a phenomenal balloon garland ooohhhlala captured by the talented @mackenziejanephoto. Definitely one of the summer highlights for my team. So grateful to these creative ladies and to precious Hayden for giving us a reason to throw a party.
