December 29th, 2013|52 Weeks 2013|

December 29, 2013 - You know that feeling, the one after Christmas is done, chores are done, and you can finally relax? This shot makes me think of that. I went to take a shower and found Loki splayed out across the tiles, face pressed to the heat vent. He seemed to be saying "Sorry, [...]

51-52-2013: Winter in the new home

December 21st, 2013|52 Weeks 2013|

December 21, 2013 - I just love the snow and was up before the sun to enjoy the peace and quiet that snow brings to the Lower Mainland. In two ways.

November 11, 2013 - It's been a crazy hectic week. On October 31st we took possession of our new home, and it's been non-stop ever since.

October 31, 2013 - Happy Halloween is an understatement. Today at 11:30 am we got the keys and took possession of our new home. We are thrilled. We had to wait around for a couple of hours while we waited for a new bed frame to arrive and be put together, and then we moved [...]
