new favorite word….

April 25th, 2011

magazines

wonderblime.

i of course can NOT take credit for this word and i’m sure it’s probably been said or used many times before, but i came across this word today while reading my favorite magazine of all time, no questions asked…..

frankie.

this magazine comes from the very dear to my heart, 2nd home land, australia. this is one of the things hands down, on my MOST MISSED from aus list. my darling sister in law, Dianne Walker did the sweetest thing. she subscribed to frankie in australia for me as a christmas gift, (because it’s way cheaper there than to have it sent here) and sends it to me every two months! what a dolly!

anyway, check it out at www.frankie.com.au if you haven’t already you will not be disappointed!

Farewell 2010…

January 9th, 2011

farwell 2010

so of course it’s that time,

a time when you remember things past and look forward to things ahead. As 2010 is rapidly disappearing in the rearview mirror i naturally begin to wonder what this bright new year will hold.

2010 was good to us, finally settled in our own little corner of the world (kelowna, BC) we began to dream once again. this past year took us to many places. some of those places we once called home, but many of them new and unfamiliar to us. This was a year of adventure, challenge, growth, family & friends, and much Love.

we can’t wait to see where this ship will sail in 2011, my husband wrote something once to me while we were dating and i feel that it is very key for this next year, it went a little something like this…..

that day on the boat

“faith is the ship of doing.

it is never docked but is fueled by hopes of distant lands;

the Holy Spirit fills it’s sails and the word of God is the very wood it is made of.

you are it’s crew and when the crew stay on board it is not easily sunk.

Jesus is it’s Captain and the hurting world it’s destination, a redeemed world it’s goal.

faith is the ship of doing and it’s your choice to sail with it or not.”

~StephenjohnBryde

a few pictures below only begin to capture this past year for us, enjoy and much love in this new year.

July 7th, 1983.

August 5th, 2010

A fine day in history, the day of my birth.

that’s right, i’m 27 and proud.

Amanda's Garden Party*

i have come to find that growing older is grand.

i feel like my perspective on life has changed and developed so much these past few years that being older has a new appeal to it.

you see things through new eyes as you add another year to your life.

i understand and respect my parents more than ever.
i listen differently, more intently, to people and those around me than i ever did before.
i see god in a new light and am more in love with him than years past.
i am learning to love in a deeper way.

so many new things how can you not embrace age?

just over a week ago we had a party to celebrate of course, another thing that gets better, parties! we decided to have a Garden Party. my cousin Cassandra Monster (yes that’s really her last name =) myself and of course my mother, threw some fabulous yummies, decorations, and well thought out details together and a grand party it was!

thank you all who came, helped and celebrated, it was a great day!

*the pictures below will give you a bit of an idea of the fun we had! *

painted nails.

June 30th, 2010

fingernails

fingernails

being a newly married woman for almost a whole year now, means that with this new title come a few very key changes. my husband likes to remind me that it is no longer just little ol me, two have become one, which means more mouths to feed, another body to clothe, a bigger place to live, another mobile phone bill to pay, and on it goes. so needless to say i am on a tight budget. i’m sure many of you can relate…

i will be honest and tell you though, that there most certainly have been times when i’ve slipped up and splurged on that really cute green dress, or those impossible to ignore delightful dangly earrings, but for the most part i try. i don’t have an addiction to expensive things really, i don’t have a jewelry fetish, a get my hair done monthly fetish, or even a shoe fetish (not that there is anything wrong with any of those things, everyone’s different) but what i do have a fetish for are painted nails.

now painted nails, they make me feel pretty. i like my hands, i admire them, more than most people would i’m sure and so when i am having a down day, or feeling a little under the weather, or if i just want to look cute….the paint comes out, the nails get filed and VOILA, things are right in the world again.

okay, i put myself out there, it’s your turn….what are your secret indulgences ??
