Meet Jackson.  Not quite a newborn anymore, this little guy turned four months last week and is one of the happiest babies I have ever met.  This little one is adored, he is loved and he is perfect.  The whole session was filled with baby giggles and his big, happy eyes!

Daisy and Matt, I can’t thank you enough for the chance to document you three!  Congratulations on your sweet boy!

10 days.  That’s how long Omar and I have been living under the same roof – and we’re still alive, so that’s good 😉  Last Thanksgiving was of first official holiday spent together as a couple and it seems quite fitting that it will be our first holiday spent together in our new home.  The day will be spent cooking a turkey (not sure how Omar plans to eat a turkey all to himself, but he assures me he’ll manage), breaking open my last bottle of pumpkin spice wine and expressing what I’m thankful for to one of the people I care most about.  I might even try and convince Omar to watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving…we’ll see how that goes 😉

In light of the holiday spirit, I thought I’d share 10 things (one for each day Omar and I have been living together…I’m cheesy, I know) I am grateful for this Thanksgiving…

1. Finally getting to live with my most favourite person
2. Cranberry Ginger ale
3. Keeping my plant alive for 6+ months. (it’s a cactus, but still)
4. Fireplaces and cozy blankets
5. Big sweaters and thick socks
6. Fine point pens
7. The fact that Omar enjoys sleeping in as much – if not more – than I do
8. Falling leaves
9. Chachi is settling in nicely and sleeping places other than beneath the bed – we think she secretly loves her new home
10. You

Today also marks the one year anniversary since the official launch of my website and blog!  I wouldn’t be able to any of this without the support from clients and the people who read along, so thank you so sticking around.  Enjoy today (even if you celebrated yesterday) with those you love 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

A few weeks ago was Omar’s last time visiting me on the Island.  It was such an exciting experience to go back to where our first few months as a couple began, knowing that by the end of the month we’ll be moving our things into our new home.  It has been a long time coming and I still can’t believe that NEXT WEEK (!!!!) we’ll be starting this new chapter of our lives together.

When it was time for Omar to head back home after helping assist me with Angela and Jarrod’s wedding at the beginning of the month, we decided to drive to the ferry early and enjoy some time in a place where we spent the majority of the begining of our relationship.  We parked the car, bought his ticket, then headed to Jack Point, a little ocean side trail behind the ferry terminal in Nanaimo.  It was such a beautiful end to a wonderful weekend and I’m just so FREAKING excited to finally move in with this cute thang 😉  Nine more sleeps!

Here’s to forever xo

Happy Thursday!
