August Favorites


I can't express how fast my summer seemed to fly by! It was definitely a favourite - filled with so many happy memories. Today I am sharing some of my top favorite things from this lovely, sunny, summery August!

  1. These Earrings!: Amos Pewter Co. is a Nova Scotian Company with beautiful pewter jewelry and more. I bought myself these cherry blossom ones that I couldn’t resist as apple blossoms are my favourite spring bloom! 
  2.  Paper Co. Note cards: Anna Bond's painted florals are great. I’m loving this inspirational quote, “The Best is Yet to Come”, one I have on my desk.
  3. Birdy: I have had Birdy, specifically Not About Angels, Shelter, and Best Shot on repeat this summer - her voice is lovely!
  4. Handmade Pottery: I took a pottery class this spring and gained an appreciation for the art, especially pottery thrown on the wheel...It is not easy! I bought this pretty cup at a little pottery studio down the road from where I stayed in Nova Scotia.

DIY Patterned Tape


Washi tape is definitely my favourite craft supply, it makes everything so much prettier! I remember making magazine stickers at the summer camp I worked at and had the idea to make some "sticker tape" from patterns clipped out of magazines. I simply enjoy my time crafting, so going the extra mile to make my own tape from some very pretty patterns was lots of fun for me!

Start by finding and cutting out strips of patterns found in magazines.

Nova Scotia Road Trip


At the end of July my sister, friend, my friend’s mom, and I road tripped to Nova Scotia. The trip was so much fun and I always learn so much when traveling. Going there we went through Quebec, Quebec is mostly French, so it was an experiance reading the road signs, listening to the radio, and visiting gas stations. I have it on my travel bucket list now to cycle along the Saint Lawrence river, driving beside it was lovely, but biking it would be amazing! New Brunswick has so many little wooded mountains ranges that I was not excepting. The east coast of Canada is seriously beautiful, every sight is so picturesque. On this trip I was awed at Canada’s beauty and I gained a desire to explore more of the great country I live in…Now for the west coast! 

I'm Blogging Again!


Hello friends! I am so excited to be blogging again! I have missed updating and personalizing my own little corner of the internet. So much has and is happening in my life, but I will share more of that in posts to come...Enjoy your last days of summer!



 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11

I'm thankful for the New Year, it is wonderful to have a fresh start and feel energized to make things happen and change things up. Last year I followed along with Lara Casey's Goal Setting series and did the same thing this year. It really is good for me to look back at the past year, taking note of things that worked and things that didn't, and getting a vision for how I want my year to look like. The quote "She decided to start living the life she imagined" really resonates with me, for me this is about forming daily habits of things that are important to me, like feeding myself with God's Word, being creative, exercising, reading, and more.

The past year 2 Samuel 23: 3-4 and Proverbs 4:18 were really on my heart, they talk about how a righteous person is like morning light, I love that imagery! I'm so thankful that Jesus has washed me and made me clean, allowing His beautiful light to shine. This year I want to live, work, hope, walk, learn, and rest in that light!
