Creativity Overflow

Creativity Overflow

There have been quite a few moments over the last several weeks where I've had to step back and take in how lucky I feel right now.  I have so many different creative projects on the go and it's felt really fulfilling for me. I've always been a creative being but have lacked direction and felt as though the best way to practice creativity was safely - within our home, and our lives, where it's understood and appreciated and valued.  But I've always had this desire somewhere deep down to find my voice and platform to confidently have my art seen.

Florals x Wildly Us

Florals x Wildly Us

I'm really excited to share this project with you all!  At the beginning of this year I decided that I wanted to work with my hands creatively.  Flowers felt like the most natural fit.  Growing up I would cut bunches of purple lilacs from our backyard and arrange them strategically around my bedroom.  Flowers are always at the centre of our table when we entertain (which is quite often).  In the last few years I've started growing flowers in our garden with dreams of having a cut flower garden one day.  And through the winter theres nothing quite like a beautiful bouquet to give life to home when everything outside is freezing and covered in snow.  I love the idea of flowers being at the heart of gatherings, a part of celebration, and a loving + thoughtful way to let someone know you're thinking of them.

The Stuff of Life

The Stuff of Life

Life has been full lately.  We live in such a "busy" world.  People wear busy like a badge of purpose.  I try and avoid using the expression "I'm SO busy".  I don't want to be TOO busy.  Too busy for the people and things that mean the most to me.  Abundance and fullness are much better words and somehow include all those people and things that busy leaves out.  The truth is that this busyness has caused us to review and make a few adjustments.  It's not a bad thing to take inventory, realize what can fall away, and what's integral to doing life the way you want to and in being the person you want to be.  Especially before you're too busy to take stock, only to finally have time one day to realize you've been filling your life with things that aren't who you want to be.

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.

Date Night // June

Date Night // June

Earlier this year James and I decided that we needed to set aside one night each week to intentionally date.  We decided on Thursday night and dubbed it Thurs-date.  James and I spend lots of time together as it is, so why set aside another night of the week to spend together (aside from adoring spending time together)?

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.
