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! *

a whole new world.

February 9th, 2010

so today i walked into a store that i used to enter quite frequently with my mother as a child. the ironic thing is that i can remember taking the stance of disheartened child and whining the whole time making the experience quite painful for my mother. the thing is, at that age clearly i didn’t understand the world that i had entered while holding my mother’s hand. but today…today was different.

it was as though i was seeing it for the first time. as i stood in awe trying to take in all the beautiful patterns, colors and textures i was a little overwhelmed to be honest. the bottons and thread were to my left, the scissors, needles and other accessories were on my right and layed out before me were bolts and bolts of fabric…i’m sure you’ve gathered by now that the world i entered was that of “fabricland”.

i have wanted to learn for a few years now how to sew and i have finally made the decision that i’m going to take the time to do just that. i have quite a few things that i wish to create and perhaps eventually sell so keep your eyes peeled for handmade goodies!
