If you are wondering about how I fared in my 30-before-30 post, head on over the the 30-before-30 page, where I’ve just posted an in depth update! In other news: I had an awesome day yesterday. I woke up at 6 (I’m a morning person, yo) to the best card and gift ever from the
Today I’m thirty. And I’ve never been more excited about where I am or where I’m going! You knew this day was coming, because I’ve been keeping you up to date with monthly posts on the state of my 30-before-30 project! (I’ll update you on the state of that project, and what I’m doing next,
Well. Today is the last day of my 20s. It’s also the last day of both my 30-before-30 and the photo-a-day project I was doing as part of my 30-before-30 project. I can’t really believe it! Here’s what a year in pictures (minus about 60 days, represented by coloured boxes) looks like. For bigger versions,
Hi Guys! I missed you! That being said, taking a 10-day break was exactly what I needed to get inspired again! Now I’m back and ready to roll. And first up: an update on my 30-before-30 project. And guess what! This is Month 11. That’s right, I’ve been chipping away at this list for 11
Who writes a blog post on the Sunday morning of a long-weekend? Well, I do! Because it just so happens to be the 5th of the month, and we are 10 months into my 30-before-30 project, and just two short months away from my 30th birthday. I woke up this morning at 6:30, baked some
Time sure does fly, I can’t believe that I started this 30-before-30 project nine months ago. And even more, I can’t believe that I’ve only got three months to go! I’ve been distracted (really distracted) with weddings, and a new business, and settling in Vancouver so—once again—I didn’t go a great job on my list.
Whoa. Month 8. That means I’m 2/3 of the way through my 29th year (and 98.8% of the way through my first 30 years of life… but who’s counting). Month 8 was crazy. We moved into our new place. I did projects. I started a new (new) company that I haven’t talked about on this
Remember item 14 on my 30-before-30 list? “To Cook Something That Takes More Than One Day”? Well folks, I’ve scratched it off the list (a couple of times, if you include my home-made bread from last-last week). Months and months ago I came across Matt Bites’ post about Sriracha Pulled Pork from the Sriracha cookbook.
Inspired by my friend Melissa, I signed up for the Scotiabank half marathon in June. I was kicking butt on my training and plugging along ready to try to beat my previous time of 1:49 in May 2010. (The reason I like running is that picture. See that crazy happy face? Yeah… that’s at 21.5km.
Holy crap! I just realized it is the 7th. That means that I completely blew by the 5th without even realizing that I was due for a 30-before-30 update! This month just sort of blew by before my eyes, but have no fear, you just get a super special second post today with a (shorter
Wow. I can’t believe that it was 6 months ago that I posted my 30-before-30 list on my 29th birthday. My life has changed so much since that day, and I’m so excited about all of the exciting changes still to come this year. After a big day wine and bike touring in Mendoza yesterday,
On a not-so-cold mid-December day in Toronto, I met with Tara McMullen, a wonderful Toronto wedding photographer. I can’t remember when I first heard of Tara, though I’m quite sure it was shortly after I started shooting in Toronto in late 2009. From the moment I saw her work, I was drawn to her style.
Feliz quinto del mes, amigos! Happy fifth of the month, friends! And, you know what the fifth of the month means… 30-before-30 update time! Before we get started, I want to mention a couple of things: my friend Melissa (West Coast Nest) is turning 30 at the end of this month. She’s got a 30-before-30
I’ve written and re-written the intro to this post. I actually drafted most of this post on the flight home from Ushuaia on Tuesday evening but then Wednesday and Thursday happened. You know when you do something really awesome, be it a trip, a conference, a workshop, a wedding or something else, and then you
December 5 to January 5 was a big, big month for me, and I apologize for posting this a day late! As you know, we’ve been in transit and yesterday we shot a pre-wedding barbeque for our January 7 wedding couple! In the first quarter of the year, I’ve come a long way on my
