Lindeman Lake Engagement

He was sitting on a rock shaped like a chair.  Not just a rock, you see, but a rock with a footstool and a comfortable curve. The perfect rock, of course, and a gleeful triumph for him on that August day while he waited for the rest of the hiking group to show up.  It was a singles group from a Langley church, a crew of like-minded adventurers hanging out on a Saturday morning in Chilliwack for a hike to Lindeman Lake. She sat across the … [Read More...]

Milner Chapel Wedding

My second wedding at Milner Chapel dawned a bitterly cold but perfectly clear day in late December.  After the bustle of Christmas but before the rush of New Year's, we snuggled into the ever-cozy, perfectly-charming, vintage-beautiful Milner Chapel in Langley, BC. With the most perfect Christmas charm, the most elaborate handmade details, and THREE pairs of bridal shoes, this Milner Chapel wedding was - to quote Mary Poppins - practically … [Read More...]

My Dad did it (Atlantic to Pacific!).  My cousin's doing it (Pacific Ocean to Lake Michigan).

To spend time in Bellingham, WA in the winter is to flirt with rain.   To combine an alleyway (my favorite!) with fabulous and quirky sweaters (Beau's favorites!) and a classy pipe (Beau's favorite!) with backlit raindrops (my favorite!), these photos are basically - well - AWESOME. (Said with all the humility possible, of course. :-P) Bellingham in the rain is stunning, even if it's a little complicated. We managed quite the operation: Beau's … [Read More...]

I went to North Carolina

I flew home on a whim a couple weeks ago. A 3500 mile journey with three days notice.  No small feat, but thanks to Google Flights I found an ideal itinerary within my budget and was able to be with my  family when they needed me. It's nice to be needed, you know? Despite the jetlag and overwhelming process to unpack and repack in the same week (I wrote this from a Toronto-bound airplane, am finally publishing this the day before I do … [Read More...]

Tulip Season

"Oh no!  I can't do this!  It's too hard!" The dark closed in, the warmth became suffocating, the loneliness was too much.  Curled into the pocket that had been forced upon her, she shivered against the harsh … Continue Reading
