Happy Family Day everyone! This is truly one of my favourite holidays. No, its not sunny outside and we typically wouldn't go away or really do anything super special....but that's why I like it. We just let ourselves spend time with family keeping cozy while it's cold outside and using the time to talk, snuggle and do things together that don't cost a thing! 

As I was thinking about Family Day, I thought I would share some very special photos that Emily Krbec (my amazing, talented, sweet and hard working second photographer) took of us last summer. We've been testing out a new type of session (more to come on that soon) that is fully centered around family and the truest expression of life and love in an everyday way. It's about how we live. As a note, my grandmother stays with us from time to time for extended periods and I am so glad that she was here for these photos! It's these kinds of images that I know I will be extremely grateful for in years to come.

Welcome to my house, my neighborhood and to my family in all our weirdness and the everyday stuff that makes!


The Holidays are almost here and we have been busy getting ready for all the family-fun time ahead. All the decorating, wrapping by the fireplace, planning, organizing, designing, eating way too much chocolate and drinking way too much coffee. All culminating in a few days of joyous celebration and family time together! We can't even wait! Here's a little peek at the holiday prep at our home!

We love a good wrapping scheme and this year we were inspired by mustard tones and marble. This is how we made it work!

Decorating is pretty simple around here. Some pinecones on the banister, a few decorative trees and a simple geometric gold/rosegold/natural scheme for the tree.

Then what's left to do, but take a tripod assisted family photo outside in the snow and then snuggle up by a fire, with a cup of coffee and our best little buddy Duddly! Happy Holidays Everyone!
