2021 Highlights: Week 26

Get ready, this is a long one! It's been quite the week. Beginning at the beginning, can we talk about the heat? Oh man, it's been hot. BC broke records across Canada this week with highs into the 40s (that's Celsius). For context, our typical June average is around 21 degrees. 28 would be considered… Continue reading 2021 Highlights: Week 26

2021 Highlights: Week 25

I'm writing this a little earlier than usual because I know we have a busy weekend coming up. We're at the beginning of a heat wave, with projected temperatures of 35 and 40 degrees next week. My rainy West Coast background means that when it's sunny I feel the need to be outside all the… Continue reading 2021 Highlights: Week 25

2021 Highlights: Week 24

Hi there! We are officially into summer and the last week of school. We're counting down the days in our house, not because we don't love school but because we're so excited to be together as a family every day and looking forward to many summer adventures. Some highlights this week: A story that Pearl… Continue reading 2021 Highlights: Week 24

2021 Highlights: Week 23

Hi there! Coming in a little late because the weekend kind of got away from me but let's talk about some good stuff that happened last week: Pearl got 2 beach days with her class! It's so nice that they can walk from school to the beach. Both times Rose and I picked her up… Continue reading 2021 Highlights: Week 23

2021 Highlights: Week 22

Picking flowers in empty lots.Sprinklers and popsicles in the backyard. This week we paid our district tax and our home insurance, two annual expenses that can leave our bank account feeling drained. I like to take a moment though to be thankful for what they mean. We have a home where we are safe and… Continue reading 2021 Highlights: Week 22

30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 20

See this dress in 2014 here and in 2013 here. I haven't exactly mixed it up in terms of styling this dress. The dress is H&M. The belt is my one belt that I use for all dresses. I've been trying (not that hard) to find a belt that fits and that can go with… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 20

30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 18

We're back to rain today so I went with a comfortable repeat. I wore the same Old Navy dress that I wore just a few days ago on Day 12. Though today I wore it without the belt because I was even more casual. I took some pictures. Pearl photobombed a lot of them. (She… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 18

30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 17

BCBG dress purchased at an outlet in California years and years ago. See it in 2014 here and in 2013 here. I don't wear this dress much anymore and when I got dressed this morning I thought it's probably time to let it go. I like the sort of shapelessness to it but I'm not… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 17

30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 15

(See the dress in 2013 here and in 2014 here.) Last night we had a crazy thunder storm (a rarity for our part of the world though something that's happened a few times recently) and it poured rain all morning. Pearl and Bella and I went for a rain walk in the morning, splashing in… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 15

30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 13

There's our lawn mower! (See the dress in previous years here.) This was really a day when I should have taken pictures before I went to work/spent the day blowing my nose. But I don't exactly need one more task to accomplish before I leave my house on workdays. (Parents who work full-time, I salute… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 13
