Writing Retreat to Rocky Mountain House
My family and friends were lucky enough to go on a mid-week retreat to a fantabulous cabin just outside of Rocky Mountain House. My plan for this retreat was to WRITE and I’m happy to report I managed to revise a few chapters of Book 3. The setting was ideal for writing. Loads of gorgeous…
Montecasino Bird Gardens (Vacation Pics Part Two)
I mentioned in the first vacation photo post that we did one touristy thing while in South Africa, and this is it. When Kayla was about a year old, we also visited the bird gardens. Since she doesn’t remember that, and she’s quite the zoology buff, we reckoned she might enjoy going again. So, on…
Vacation Pics (Part One)
Aren’t you proud that we managed to take some photos on this last visit to South Africa. You know, amid the chaos that was this last visit to South Africa. 🙂 We managed to do a total of one touristy thing, the pics of which I’ll share with you next week. Brace yourselves for lots…
Miss Me Much?
Why hello! It’s good to see you again. We’re officially back from our little trip to South Africa, and it’s seriously good to be home. We’ve spoken about me and my routine before, but you don’t really realise how much you cling to your routine until it’s broken. Friends, much as I loved seeing family…
The Random Photo Post
These are the last of the vacation photos, the stragglers who didn’t come in with the rest of the herd. My in-laws aren’t really photo people. I have a wall of photos in my house, a display of all of the faces we love, but the last family photo I have of us and my…
Calgary Stampede & Parade 2019
Yahoo! Our very first Stampede stomped around in early July, and these new Calgarians were there to enjoy it all. Parade day was cool and overcast–apparently not the usual weather around Stampede. Still, I reckon the cool air was good, since we didn’t need to deal with general sweatiness. We were also quite lucky and…
Vacation Photo Diary Vol 1
We went to the mountains. I mean, this was obviously one of the first things we did while my in-laws visited. Have you seen the Rockies? I want to live there. 🙂 We explored Banff and Bow Falls this time, so expect to be bombarded with images of nature that will pull at your heartstrings.…
From Beethoven to Burg Castle
On the last full day of our vacation, we drove to Bonn to fulfil a dream. Lizanne is a muso and a massive Beethoven enthusiast. So, when she found out that we could go to his birthplace, she was pretty much out of her skin.
Tulips from Amsterdam
We returned to Amsterdam after a day of rest, but this time, we had a mission. Tulip fields.
Visit to Maastricht and Aachen
We love these two cities so much, we’ve visited both before. This was our second time in Maastricht, Netherlands, and also our second visit to Aachen, which is a small German border-town. I can highly recommend both. This was a lazy Sunday trip and would also be the last warm, sunny day we had while…
