I had the pleasure of helping Laurie and Warren plan their summer wedding last year. The couple was living in London at the time, but wanted to come back home to Vancouver, BC to celebrate with their family and friends.
Here are a few fabulous photos courtesy of the fabulous Chris & Lynn.

Talk about long distance relationships! I helped plan this amazing couple's wedding while they were living in Shanghai and I was here in Vancouver. Sometimes the time difference really got me!
Robyn and Shervin were living in Shanghai but are originally from Vancouver. They decided to fly back and surprise their close family and friends by getting married! Their beautiful reception was held at the peak of Vancouver, Grouse Mountain.
Here are a few pics:

If you get a chance hop over to my other blog Lola's Girl. I recently opened up an Etsy shop. I sell sweet and simple children's clothing at a very affordable price (an example pictured above). Take a peek at my shop, leave a comment on my blog or buy an item and support my fabric addiction.

If you heart handmade too, visit Etsy and stop by Imeon Design. She is the genius behind my little itty bitty pieces of handmade art.

Ok, how can I say no to a request for matching outfits? I don't know if it's the control freak in me, but I ADORE matchy matchy! Nothing can be "too matching" in my opinion.
Oh by the way, I broke down and joined Twitter. Come follow me (I have no idea where I am going yet, but wherever it is, matchy, matchy will not be looked down upon !)

When I was pregnant with my first daughter, like any new mom-to-be, I read as much literature on parenting as possible. I read several different books, on-line articles and magazines, and one piece of advice for all the new moms that was consistent in all of them was: nap when your newborn baby is napping. Being the naive young thing, and not yet a mom, I thought to myself, ha! I will use that time to do laundry, clean the house and cook. I will NOT be lazy and nap!
Fast foward a few years and 2 babies, and I now know, that as a mom to a newborn, naps are necessary for your sanity! (unless of course you can survive on 2 hours of sleep a night).
Since my babies no longer get up every 2 hours to nurse, I don't need to nap for my sanity any longer. But I still do strongly believe in naps... for THEM. When they nap, I can clean, cook, do wedding stuff, surf the net, blog (you get the idea).
But, surprisingly, I have come around to believing in naps (name me one person who doesn't.. oh yah.. that was me!) and sometimes (ok, more than sometimes) I will lay down in between my 2 sweet daughters and nap with them.
Who can resist a nap with 2 sweet-smelling, cuddly little girls, on a rainy Saturday afternoon.?
Not me... so I guess I will indulge myself today.

It's going to be a fun and casual affair. Emily and her fiance Chris have told me that they just ''want to have fun!'' Those are the best kind of weddings!
Will post pics as soon as soon as I can!

Dove sponsored a "design your own pyjama's contest" for blossoming designers between the ages of 7-10 years old. And a 10 year old little girl named Riley Matwick won.
The pj's are blue with yellow stars, multi-coloured rainbows and white and pink flowers. The stars, say Riley reflect her feeling that everyone is a shining star, the multi-coloured rainbows points to the beautiful, colourful nature of each individual and the flowers are a symbol of the unique qualities everyone possesses.
She came up with the pant design which was completed with the saying: beauty=me, beauty=you.
The contest challenged young girls to come up with a pyjama design that expressed their vision of "beauty".
"My wish is that everybody notices that they are unique and beautiful just the way they are." said Riley on her pyjama design.
How refreshing is it to hear a young girl say that beauty is about uniqeness and being an individual? This article just lifted a little bit of weight off my shoulders when I think about what kind of society I have to raise my 2 little girls in.
Thank you Riley!

"Steel gray will replace chocolate brown as the accent color. We absolutely love this soft yet deep hue teamed with butter yellow, bright aqua, rich eggplant, or pale pink. It's so versatile! Introduce the color in your stationery, either in the typeface or paper, and then gradually build it into your reception space by way of slate gray table accents and pewter-toned bridesmaid dresses with a contrasting sash."
I still love chocolate brown though... hmmm... a chocolate brown and grey wedding? maybe not!

"create with your hands, heal with your hands,
touch with your hands, work with your hands,
extend your hands and pray with your hands"
Who knew a hand cream could be so inspirational?

I came across this blog surfing the net today. The premise behind it is people mail in their secrets (good and bad) on one side of a postcard, and then the blogger posts it on his blog for the whole world to see.
Some of the secrets are cute and funny. Some of the secrets made my stomach turn.
Check it out for yourself http://postsecret.blogspot.com/
