365 days of happy – september 2017

DAY 244 – September 1st

we bought a house ottawa photographerSurprise!! Two months from today, we are moving into our new home ๐Ÿก


DAY 245 – September 2nd

Today isn’t really about me, but it doesn’t make it any less happy. My parents celebrate 28 years of marriage today, and I could not be more proud of them. It was a great honour to have had them at my wedding to walk me down the aisle towards my new adventure, leading by example.


DAY 246 – September 3rd

Today was our 3 months milestone of being married. We ‘celebrated’ with the most marriage-life thing we could have done; we spent the better part of the day in the bedroom… cleaning out the closet (what did YOU think!?). With the big move coming up soon, we have been going through everything and purging what we don’t need. The bedroom is no small task, and will likely take all day tomorrow as well, but our day was filled with lovey dovey comments, bad dad jokes, some innuendos, and the satisfaction of a job well done. Welcome to married life!


DAY 247 – September 4th

Another day spent in the bedroom reorganizing everything before the move. We made great progress on the closet, and I even got to colour coordinate my pants. Small wins can be great.


DAY 248 – September 5th

[more house organizing and cleaning–no time for photos]

DAY 249 – September 6th

I am a genius! Keto-friendly pumpkin spice yogourt. I get to enjoy the fall flavour too!


DAY 250 – September 7th

It’s the little joys in life that keep things interesting. Like this mini eggplant. Have you ever seen such an adorable vegetable!? ๐Ÿ†


DAY 251 – September 8th

Purging through a whole bunch of old things in my closet makes me feel so anxious yet so refreshed. A little bit at a time, but it is slowly making me a happier me.


DAY 252 – September 9th

That time I went to a wedding and this was the entertainment between the ceremony and the reception. Win!!


DAY 253 – September 10th

My happy place will always be with my husband, but before him there was my love for my art. And it’s still there, waiting for me every chance I get. Despite the challenges it brings, it also brings tremendous joy to myself and the parents whose babies I photograph. I am so thankful I have something so joyous in my life, that is uniquely mine, that I get to spend my time ‘working’ at something that feels more like fun. A workout, but fun! ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ


DAY 254 – September 11th

Not your average Monday. Or is it…? I absolutely love that we have date-night many times during the week; even on mundane Monday.


DAY 255 – September 12th

It’s a ‘sit on a park bench eating strawberries’ kind of day and I love it! ๐Ÿ“


DAY 256 – September 13th

Happy Birthday to me! ๐ŸŽ‰
Went out for sushi with some friends and it was awesome!! Well, they had sushi and I got to enjoy a boatload of sashimi ๐Ÿฃ
Yumm!! So frikken delicious!! And they were so fast!!


DAY 257 – September 14th

We’ve been having people come visit the apartment for the last week or so, and until now it has been set up for my studio. Today we rearranged everything to look like an actual apartment and it’s kinda nice. Almost makes me want to stay.. Almost, but nope! New house here we come!!


DAY 258 – September 15th

Long drive to our home away from home, to celebrate my dad and my shared birthday with all of my grandparents.


DAY 259 – September 16th

Nothing like waking up to the birds on a nice foggy morning; blue skies and all.


DAYS 260-265

Well, I’ve been off the grid for a while since a ton has happened and kept me away from technology…but here is the gist: My mom fell down the stairs and broke her foot (but she’s very much alive and recovering well so I am hella-grateful for that!), I’ve been super under the weather and in pain for the last week from whatever decided to attack my lungs (thank you the universe for not being contagious!), My husband has been holding down the fort making dinners so I’ve been getting fed and I don’t think I could appreciate him any more!

DAY 266 – September 23rd

I got to spend my day chatting with potential clients, catching up with industry friends, and meeting new amazing vendors at the Westboro Baby Day today. I absolutely love my job, and events like these remind me of how awesome the belly & baby community can be.


DAY 267 – September 24th
