Portugal Reminiscence

We’re back!!! From probably one of the best holidays of our lives!! Yes, it had a lot to do with the fact that we got to spend it with family!! It also has a lot to do with the fact that Portugal is an amazing country… diverse, cultural, breathtaking, understated. I have only just downloaded…

Hanging our HUGE Mirror

The other day I gave you all a little update on some of the projects that I have been keeping busy with. Within those few project was a huge mirror (4 x 8 foot)(or for us metric people, 1.2 m by 2.4 m). These mirrors came out of a ‘partly standing-partly demolished’ house. It was…

Pretty Hoarfrost

It might be my real favourite thing about winter here in Canada (I don’t particularly care for these cold cold winters….)… hoarfrost!!! It really is magical and pretty beyond words!! On this off Monday (got to love long weekends!), we took the dogs for a long walk!! What a beautiful stroll it was!!

Hi!

Just thought you’d need a new introduction!! … My name is XandrΓ©, and I am obviously terrible at keeping up with a blog!! πŸ™‚ So, I was just in the mood to give you a SUPER quick update of some glimpses into what we’ve been doing! (I’ve been updating my instagram stories periodically – and…

Holly {Stop Motion}

I don’t know why, but I haven’t shared Holly’s Stop Motion on the blog yet… I have no idea how this have slipped through the cracks, especially since it is one of my favourites to date!! (Eeeeek!! To think Holly is almost turning one!)… We miss you too much Pam and Damien!! Can’t wait to…

Johnston Canyon, AB

It is pretty amazing to see the ice formations, stalactites, the blue water and ice, the ice climbers at the end of the trail, the depth of the canyon and the famous landmarks!!

Our Quicky Walk-in Closet

This was never supposed to be a decent permanent upgrade, just temporary!! Oh, by the way, this change happened in way back in February 2014!! A LOT has changed over here!!

Visagie {Family}

This little family has been in our lives for a few years now and I have had the opportunity to document little parts of it over the course of ourΒ friendship! These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago… it was suuuuuuper cold, but we managed to keep the kiddies content for long enough to…

Madame Tussauds Las Vegas

On our last day inΒ Las Vegas we visited the infamous Madame Tussauds Wax Museum!! Although it might not be as impressive as other locations, we did not expect too much, and we had a surprisingly good time walking through and judging all these wax celebrities!! Some of them were SO real looking!! We were so…

Sedona, Arizona

Almost threeΒ years ago we met up with one of our best friends from South Africa (who is currently living and working in San Diego), and took a trip that would surely stand out as one of the best ever!! This trip included stops in Monument Valley and Grand Canyon… On route to Monument Valley we…

Mexico here we come!!

We are super dooper excited about this trip!!! Here is the back story… We got married in 2012 just prior to moving to Canada, and although we did go to Europe after we got married, that trip was booked before we even got engaged, and it was with friends, sooooo we never really had a…

Royal Tyrrell Museum, Alberta

One of my most vivid memories from when I was a child is the fact the my brother went crazy for dinosaurs!! Any dinosaurs…. All dinosaurs!! In preschool he already knew tons of the scientific names, he knew their sizes and what they ate… it was crazy!! He had this amazing dinosaur puzzle that he…

Relaxing at the Bellagio Pools

On our short visit to Las Vegas, we were staying at the Bellagio… Because you know, we really really wanted to!! We picked up a couple tips (like the $20 room upgrade tip… which works great by the way!!), rekindled friendships in the most unlikely of places (looking at that Irish people we know…), but…
