T.E.N. // That wind-blown, carefree look. Don't we look relaxed? #10 on my Top Ten list for 2018 was our family trip this summer to #VancouverIsland to visit my brother @dankooman + Christy + sweet little Rosie.⠀
I love the Island and whenever I leave always want to go back. The sites, the activities, the coffee, the indescribable beauty. The prop planes.⠀
If you need a get-away, consider #Canada's most Western province. Our days started looking for artifacts on the beach. Will dug in the sand. We simply chilled out. It was much needed down time after a hyperbolic year.⠀
Where did you find rest and refreshing this year?⠀

As the last couple of weeks of the year start to close in, I’m beginning to look back on 2018. Many people turn their noses up at New Years resolutions (I was one of them) but I’ve got to say that I’ve come to love the fact that they require us to set time aside to reflect and evaluate where there is room for self-improvement. I have plenty of ideas for resolutions (lots of room for improvement here) but only a few will make the top 3! I’m curious, have any of you started to think about how you plan to better yourselves next year? Or are you already perfect*? 😂 *Pointers are currently being accepted from those individuals.
I’m back home from Colombia and getting settled back into the daily grind of winter life in Alberta. I play a tough crybaby game of “I hate winter, I belong in a sunny destination”, but the truth is that no matter how much of a child of the sun you are, once the magic of snowglobe views like this get their grip on your heart, they truly never let go. This is Emerald Lake under a dusting of fresh snow with calm, beautiful, glassy reflections - ideal conditions in an unreal location. 💜
