dearest someday » for the dreamers, the free spirited and the adventurous

Oh my goodness.

I was so lucky and happy that I had the chance to attend this Besotted Vintage workshop.  It was so great!  The workshop left me feeling so inspired.  Workshops are great for that, there to learn and have fun.. no pressure!

Could there possibly be any better way to spend the day?

Larissa’s eye for detail is incredible.  I really appreciate her ability to know when is enough.. she has this great less is more approach, but still in a wonderful amount of goodness kind of way!  Such a talent!

This day was so fabulous!  If you are in the Grande Prairie area.. I definitely recommend her workshops!

Hello blog.  I sure have missed you.

Oh my gosh, could somebody please tell me how time is passing so quickly?  How not only is it already October.. but that October is almost over?  How is this happening?  I keep telling myself, “oh, I’ll blog tomorrow.. I’ll update the shop tomorrow.. I’ll do this.. and that!”

The days are flying by.  I am not sure what I can do to slow it all down.  I do know, that today.. is one of those tomorrows.  Maybe my blog should be called dearest tomorrow? Oh no, wait.. someday pretty much sums it up.

Over the weekend, I promised myself Monday.  I would start the routine that I miss dearly on Monday.  It is Tuesday.. a day late, but here we are.  Gosh.  What a whirlwind life is.  Must make the effort to slow it down a bit, and enjoy the moments more.  I swear, it was just summer.. and now we have frost.

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

So true.  My favourite time of year, and it is already coming to an end.  I love fall.. the change of season, the promise of something new.  The weather is my favourite, I can wear my sweaters and cardigans.. and hello new favourite, plaid flannel shirts! hee!  Fall this year has left me feeling inspired! take more photos of regular life again, to run home and grab my camera because it is foggy and beautiful and the frost is sparkling. Yes, I did that yesterday.  It felt good.  Inspired to do projects around the house again, to blog.. to create.

..loving fall.

Also.. shop update coming soon! on facebook or instagram for more frequent updates!

So happy to be back! xoxo

    Pink Ronnie - I know, it’s ridiculous. I mean, Christmas is almost here – how is that even possible!?
    Looking forward to your shop update because your creations always inspire me.

Have you ever read the children’s book This Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers?

It is simply awesome.  We are so in love with it.  One evening, not long after the teepee came in the mail.. I had a whirlwind moment of inspiration, and this was the result.  A creative photo session based on one of our most favourite books ever!

It all came together rather quickly.. we ran around gathering props and we were out the door thirty minutes later.  A quick stop at Starbucks and we were off location scouting.  It truly was an amazing night!  One of my favourite shoots of the entire summer!

Such great memories!

    Kelly @ A Swell Place to Dwell - Your photos are simply amazing! Lovely…and what a fun idea to recreate the book. I’ve look at that book in the store a few times, but maybe now I’ll have to buy it.ReplyCancel

    Cherona - Beautiful pictures as always. I love how you involve your family in impromptu photo sessions. Are they always willing and eager to play along? I want to try that sometime with my children but I’m not sure they’d be as excited about it as I would. :)ReplyCancel

    Kellie - I love you were able to turn a shot of well-loved shoes into a beautiful glimpse of summer.

    Where did you find the teepee? This might be on our Christmas list.ReplyCancel

    Pamela - Love this entire shoot! You captured it so well! Jennifer can you please provide the tepees source? Thank you! Awesome work!ReplyCancel

I have been having a bit of fun experimenting with throwback thursday on my dearest someday facebook page over the past few weeks.  I thought it might be fun to bring it over here too!

..and all at once, summer collapsed into fall.

Love that.  So true.. that is how it was here, all at once.. hello fall.  You are my favourite.

    noomiy - My fav season! :) Maybe that’s because I am November Girl.. Anyway. Lovely picture! :)

Oh gosh.. not many words are needed for this post!  xo

This is how I will always remember our visit to San Diego.  Seeing the kids as they experience the vastness of the ocean.  Watching Laine in the waves.. getting braver and going in further and further, falling in love.  Then seeing Harley chase the seagulls.. over and over and over again.

Yes.. this is how our trip will forever be in my memories. xoxo
