Getting ready to take on the world.
A big big big year ahead!

This time last year we were photographing this recently completed project. The year of 2020 was looking to be a busy one full of exciting country estate projects filling our schedule into late winter....little did we know that only a few weeks ahead of us the entire world would be turned upside down!
And now here we are, getting close to 1 year into a whole new perspective on life, work and family. All that was familiar now is seemingly out of reach, and comfort had to be intentionally created from within, because, well, we were forbidden to take comfort with friends and family.

And so, what did I learn?

You never know what tomorrow may bring, so chase that dream, turn “one day” into today, and give yourself permission to be wild and reckless.

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Take big steps into the unknown. Attempt something you know you are guaranteed to not be perfect at, and in doing so you can discover a whole world of grand adventures just waiting for you!

Because life is meant to be embraced & lived like a storybook adventure, not observed from behind the living room window.

Happy Sunday friends!!

This look on my face pretty much sums up how I am feeling these days. Looking forward to chasing and achieving some pretty big and bodacious goals for our team in the New Year.
Peace out 2020!

“Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing.” -Georgia O’Keeffe
Listening to the radio as I drive into town this morning, and on comes the outstanding voice of Dolly Parton with a Christmas song....ah, the warm childhood memories that woman’s voice rekindles!! Her story has always inspired me, and even more so today. She has mastered the art of making her unknown known, and with the greatest demonstration of authentic compassion, grace and charity one could imagine.! Thanks for inspiring me to do good, and in all things I do, aim make the world a better place in the process.

It appears I need to go shopping for some new jeans!
Been so busy of late that shopping has become a lost cause for me 🤣. I think I might try a bit of creative needle & thread artistry this weekend .... and bring back the patchwork fashion trend of the 70’s !(yes, I lived it once, so why not again?)

They tell us snow is on its way, so I’m going to hang onto this view for just a little bit longer before I embrace the inevitable 6 months of white.

“Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction”
-Pablo Picasso-

We broke down, stripped, and dismantled the resources of our land...not to destroy it, but to celebrate the beauty of it, and to take joy in it’s intrinsic ability to give us comfort and security.

When I was a kid I envied my friends who had bunk beds. I felt they were so much more fortunate than me with my plain old bed on the ground.

So every year of summer camp, you can bet I ran to climb to the first available top bunk and claim the glory of sleeping in the sky for an entire week!!
Yup, that was one of the best parts of camp for me. Climbing up and down several times a day didn’t bother me, even bumbling around while losing my footing in the dark wasn’t a deterrent. I was more than happy to risk crashing to the ground during a middle of the night bathroom run. It truly was a week of heaven for me.

So now that I’m a “few” years older I contemplate that childish desire to climb up the ladder, and crawl hunched towards the pillow so as not to whack my head on the ceiling. How did I take joy in the struggle of maneuvering, again with head down, to slither first feet, then legs and eventually whole body under the blankets? Who knew that getting oneself tucked into bed involved the talents of a Cuban Rumba dancer!!!

I think maybe I have outgrown much of that childhood fascination with sleeping in what is essentially a short-ceiling room. Comfort and convenience (especially when climbing in and out of bed in middle of the night!) now outweighs the beckoning of the top bunk.
But then I walk into this room, and something deep down inside of me lights up. That old desire to climb the ladder and slither under the blankets calls out to me.
Because really, how fun it would be to sleep in the sky again!!!

How about spending the 🇨🇦 #Thanksgiving weekend drooling over our Western Alberta #mountain & #ranch inspired feature story in @loghomeliving magazine...
Link to the full article is in our bio.
・・・
This home's great room is separated into living and dining areas by a massive stone chimney that extends through the heavy-timber roof. A driftwood moose head by Matt Torrens hangs over the dual-sided wood-burning fireplace. Western-themed and Native American-influenced art and a variety of textures – leather, hair-on-hide, raw pine and weathered wood – make the family vacation home feel like a mountain lodge resort. See the full tour–link in bio! ⁠
