it’s not the destination that matters but the journey. far too often have I rushed into what life has to offer, assuming that the goal at the end is where my reward lies, little did I know that the true reward lies in how I got there. amor fati. always.

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” ~ Viktor E. Frankl 💜😍🌄

Part 3 of 4 of how to reduce financial stress at Christmas!
Today’s tips are short and sweet!
I want you to add up your receipts, look on your online banking or your credit card statement and see how much you have already spent (if you’ve already started shopping). I want you to have the awareness of how much you’ve already spent, so it helps you to not blow your budget completely.
If it’s been crazy and you are feeling really uncomfortable looking at those numbers, I give you full permission to go and return some of those gifts. There is nothing wrong with that. It is actually incredibly empowering, you taking back control of your money.
Instead of buying for everyone, talk to your family and pull names and each just buy one gift and exchange them.
You can give homemade gifts, just go on Pinterest, look for cool gift ideas and take half a Saturday and you can make something.
Let me know if any of this resonates with you!
I will be sharing part 4 tomorrow so be on the lookout for it! ❤️🎄💕

Lush farmland along the lovely St. Lawrence...in one of my favorite areas of Quebec.
With one of Canada's most iconic landscapes as the backdrop, a moose cow and calf go for a late fall swim at sunset.
It has long been a dream to see a moose swim Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park, part of the World Heritage Site that includes the Robson Valley ecosystem, the biological gem that is at the heart of our current storytelling work. When this pair first dipped their hooves into the lake's icy waters, we could hardly believe our luck. And it's not about catching the perfect moment in nature; it's creating an image that tells a much bigger, much more important story.
For years, moose sightings in some parts of the Canadian Rocky Mountains were few and far between - including around Maligne Lake. Yet, like all natural cycles, when nature is left to its own devices, the food chain autocorrects. Today, in this ecosystem, the moose population is exploding. This cow and calf were just one of seven sets of moose mother and young we documented from Robson through into other parts of this transboundary wildlife corridor. Within the next several years, keystone species - such as wolves - will see their populations increase, helping restore their numbers in spaces, like this one, where they have been absent.
Why is this story important? It's an example of habitat carrying capacity and food chains at work, a key component of the grade 10 Science curriculum, one of the four courses that will be the focus of Nature Labs. More importantly, it's stories like this one that can help students ask better questions in order to find better answers to how we can sustain our fragile biodiversity - the systems that sustain all of us.

Even better news? All proceeds from the sale of this image - and ALL purchases - in our shop support the development of Nature Labs and our ability to use real stories to bring course lessons to life. Together, we can create a new generation that understands and appreciates the importance of balancing people and nature.
My best pal is home for 10 days 🎉🎈 I booked Friday off work to spend with him, and I didn’t realize when I booked it that it’s also our 5 year anniversary that day! Fancy dinner date Friday, mountains on Saturday, and relaxing together Sunday; I can’t wait ♥️ #abparks#happinessishere#choosemountains
