Friday I’m in Love | XV

Contrary to popular belief, April 25 is not the perfect date. Mother Nature blasted us one (hopefully) last time on Earth Day, and it stuck around for a few days. I swear I will stop talking about the weather…. as much. If I stopped all together, I think they’d take away my Canadian citizenship! This week, the world celebrated the Bard’s birthday. Whether you love Shakespeare or think he’s high-culture, Ben Crystal’s Shakespeare On Toast will forever change the way you read him. To celebrate, this little image is a blast from the past, photographed in the den of my favourite English professor. noted Scrolling through the archives to find this image reminded me of how much time I spent shooting for myself. I really need to get back to that! This Friday’s favourites: Continue reading

Friday I’m in Love | XIV

Spring weather has finally arrived and I’m itching for a change of scenery. Sadly, I have to be an adult (for now) and replace my 17 year old couch instead of buying a ticket to San Francisco to visit a friend. Maybe next month will look different!

It’s Friday, the weather is fine, and it’s time to find a patio! Have a great weekend, my friends!

Friday I’m in Love | XIII

Mother Nature is toying with us, gentle reader. It’s been at turns snowy, foggy, rainy, hot, sunny, foggy, cold, and gloomy, and sometimes all of the above in one day. The joys of living in Ontario, I suppose.

I took a break last Friday, not to celebrate Easter or Passover or even just the long weekend, but to move all of my galleries over to a new host. I’m loving everything about the new setup, and I’d love to hear what you think! Point your browser over here for a peek.

I’m in the midst of prepping Mother’s Day cards and prints, which I secretly want to keep for myself. I love the frameable cards; they’re a card and a gift in one.

It’s all blue skies and smooth sailing ahead!

Friday I’m in Love | XII

I’m in Winnipeg this week, though with so little time to explore due to my commitments. What amazes me is how hard I push myself when I travel – I’m up at the crack of dawn, wandering for hours, exploring through every available minute – and I really need to bring that home to my day to day life.

It’s been a great (if cold) few days. I’ve made new friends, reconnected with old ones, and learned a lot. That’s the best kind of trip, isn’t it?

This is my absolutely favourite photo from the week (so far), taken with my iPhone while the awesome Marlis Funk took me on a whirlwind tour of the ‘Peg, ending with a pretty sunset at Assiniboine Park. The funny thing is that while the sunset in front of us was pretty, it was this moment behind us that really caught my attention.

I spent some of my travel time cleaning up old saved articles from my beloved Google reader. It was an interesting snapshot of my mindset and interests four, three, two years ago:
