Project 365 | Week 30

The Manitoba prairies don't get much credit.  Flat, boring, uninspiring are words that people use too often to describe the middle of Canada.  But our landscape can be so beautiful. This week our family spent another afternoon enjoying the midway at Morden's annual Corn & Apple Festival.  Thanks to my personal photographer for snapping a [...]

Project 365 | Week 29

This week we made the trek back to our hometown and visited our new yard.  Not too fancy, but you gotta love a yard that comes complete with mature trees!  So far we have a basement...photos to come... Then we took some time to visit dear friends in Steinbach, Manitoba.  I love that we know [...]

Project 365 | Week 28

CRITTERS! This week while exploring, we got to experience some pretty awesome nature!  The Big One was invited on an impromptu field trip to the booming metropolis of Winkler, so the Little One and I decided to hop on our bikes and head for one of our favourite Morden haunts...the library.  After choosing some new [...]

Project 365 | Week 27

SO much fun stuff happened this week - so much that this post is jam-packed with photos!  First up, the kids made a rocket ship fuelled by bubble juice and blasted off.  I love when they use their imaginations! The Big One found a bird's nest sitting on the ground next to the sidewalk when [...]

Project 365 | Week 26

Wow!  I can't believe I've made it to the half-way point with my little project!  Granted, the format has evolved from the beginning (because I really cannot commit to taking one photograph every day & when I do take photos, I very rarely take just one) but I'm so happy with the outcome.  I love [...]

Project 365 | Week 25

This week our family made the four hour trek east to lovely Blue Lake, Ontario.  My husband's family has been going annually for about sixteen years now and it never disappoints.  As you can see, the water is incredible (and might I add, incredibly cold)!  I could write a whole blog post on Blue Lake... [...]

Project 365 | Week 24

Before I get started and forget to explain, I want to tell you what is happening in this first photo.  I'm curious how many people have had the pleasure of spraying a liquid substance from their nose.  I had never even witnessed the phenomenon until dinner one evening last week, when the Big One started [...]

Project 365 | Week 23

Finally!  We're moved out!  We've said our final goodbyes and travelled on to bluer skies.  (Read more about the move below...) This week we took one last opportunity to say good-bye to a house that has been a central character in our family memories for over 25 years.  For example, the painting you see in [...]

Project 365 | Week 22

So last week I was talking about how busy the last couple of weeks are (with school winding up and packing all of our belonging because we sold our house) and this week the busy-ness is in full swing. The Big One performed in his school's spring concert, and in honour of the soiree I [...]

Project 365 | Week 21

Lucky me!  This week began with the sweetest little handsome guy I've met in a long time.  The photo I chose to share here today does nothing to showcase the smiliness he brought with him to the session, so I'll post more of little J later on this week. With the end of the school [...]
