July Long Weekend

July Long Weekend

I woke up early this morning remembering that I haven't blogged in awhile and feeling the desire to but also happy at the notion that life has been so full and I've been enjoying summer so much that I just haven't had the time.  Last weekend we spent 3 days in BC, at my family's cottage, with friends.  It was perfect.

Summer 2017 is officially here!  I'm a big believer in celebrating any chance you get, and summer is something to celebrate!  So, we collaborated with friends to put together this beautiful, delicious al fresco dinner to ring in sunny days, warm nights, windows open, too many glasses of rose and the first of many dinners on our patio.

Welcome to Wildly Us

Welcome to Wildly Us

We are so excited to introduce you to our new space - Wildly Us!  

Wildly Us is what bloomed after planting a seed nearly a year ago.  As I've learned and grown and forged a path through the last year I began feeling that it was necessary for our presence online to evolve and grow and change along with us.  This space is that.

Wellness / Self-care

Wellness / Self-care

I’ve hit that point again.. There's a very distinct feeling and moment at which I begin to realize I'm starting to feel drained.  It's like the moment you're driving along and the orange gas light pops on to let you know you're getting close to empty, getting close to needing a fill.  That's me, in this moment.  Self care is easily forgettable.  For me when life gets busy, our social calendar is filled up, there are people who demand attention and care, it's spring and I'm feeling the urgency of newness, needing to get the garden cleaned up and vegetable seed orders placed, taxes, main floor ceilings that needs to be repainted - life.  And it's a balance of the thrill of knowing I'm running on empty and pushing the limits, while also being aware that I'm about to hit a wall and be empty, stranded on the side of the road when it's not fun or thrilling anymore.

Thoughts // Comparison

Thoughts // Comparison

Something I've heard myself say often lately is: keep your eyes in your own lane.  This is one of the things I want to hold to throughout 2017 in an effort to break free from those pesky limitations I was talking about in this post.  The comparison game is a cruel one.  Its easy to become discouraged and hard on yourself when you begin to look at what other people are accomplishing, creating, succeeding at, etc. and in turn make it about yourself and comparing what you're doing/who you are only to fall short.

Deck The Halls // Juniper Garland x Rhosyn

Deck The Halls // Juniper Garland x Rhosyn

Rhosyn is a small business here in Calgary that creates stunning floral arrangements as well as curated, hand-made gift boxes.  I met Erica (the owner) when she created the flowers for my launch party (you can see that post here) and as soon as I met her I instantly liked her.  She's beautiful, kind, and super talented.  When I had the idea of running simple gorgeous green garland down our railing during for Christmas I asked her if she would like to create with me.  Amidst her running a small business and being a mom to three beautiful kids I was so excited that we were able to collaborate on this project.
