Friday Anthology 19*June*2015

Well that week flew by. I swear our little dude grew three inches, I unpacked about 750 more boxes. Or maybe it was just 17.

This is officially week three of Anchors + Proteas and I must say hearing all the feedback from friends near and far plus new readers is such a motivator. Did you know Anchors+Proteas has a Facebook page – makes following the conversation easy peasy.

I feel completely blessed to know a lot of people with cool jobs. So if you want to read about two of people with f*#king awesome jobs (such great jobs I feel the need to swear) then jump into the world of Element Botanicals’ Amber Haase and the Brinkman Climate’s Joseph Pallant.

In case you missed it, I walked y’all through my favourite ways gathering city intel. If you’re more digital than analog, check out Calgary Travel Blogger Jody Robbins’ travel app picks hereRead more

Motivation Monday ~ Escher & Chaos


“We adore chaos because we love to produce order.”

~ M.C. Escher

I’ve always been a giant mouthful, bite off more than she can chew type. So why wouldn’t I try to launch my blog baby and move and face multiple freelance deadlines in the same week? Why? Because I’m a special kind of silly.

So I was going to post a photo of our CRAZY messy, amazing, cute little Edmonton rectangle house to share with y’all but there’s just a little too much chaos. Give me a week in our new home and then perhaps a photo or two. So instead I’ll show you one of my favourite parts of our new place. Our crazy Mad Men-esque, mid-century modern light fixture in our bedroom (and a wee snippet of the Maasai blanket I’m using as a curtain until we find – err unpack – our real ones). Isn’t it basically a mid-century modern orgasm of cool? I think so. Have a great week folks.
