I’m so sad we didn’t make it to your wedding but I am so happy for you and wish you all the best!

(Shawna the photos are fab, as usual! lol)


We all have a list.  Sometimes, its lengthy, lofty and out of reach.  For a while when I was about fifteen … my list looked like this: drives a cool car, holds my hand at the hockey rink, doesn’t skateboard, had less zits than I did, wasn’t afraid of 6’6″ father, could name the Prime Minister…

Kyle + Dani: Engaged!

She was getting tired. They had been going at this for many hours. One step. Then another. She looked around her – and she felt lucky. The scene that laid out in front of her was as beautiful as it gets. She could hear the waves below her, crashing into the rocky cliffs and closed…

Alexi – Grad 2011

The Rearview Mirror.  Its easy to look back.  To see where you’ve come from.  See what has shaped you.  Made you who you are today.  There will always be hills, valleys, rocky places and simply beautiful places.  The rearview mirror is aplce where all your memories lie.  Where your present reality merges with your past…
