18 for 2018 Review

After listening to one of my favourite Podcasts: Happier by Gretchen Rubin, I ended up creating a "18 for 2018" to-do list! As a type-A-list-lover, I was pretty gung-ho on this idea and made up a pretty practical list of things I wanted to accomplish and even allowed myself to revise when needed because at the end of the day: I make the rules! This type of freedom felt so inspiring and energizing!

Every month or so I would check in and check-off the things I had completed and update ones that were I.P (in progress) or to get clear on other points: example: weekend getaway with Landon. Where are we doing? What month would this be in? etc.

Project 333: Capsule Wardrobe Winter '18

My favourite thing ever is to declutter my closet. I get really bored of my clothing fairly quickly especially when I purchase things out of boredom, buy something thats too cheap, or buy something online that didn't fit properly and too lazy to return. So while I was decluttering my closet I came across a really beautiful velvet tank-top I wanted but NEVER wear. In that moment I actually realized I don't like wearing tank tops but I keep buying them!? Ha!! It's because I don't love having bare arms and I am always cold. So guess what? I no longer buy tank tops or tops that are sleeveless. I then donated all of my tank-tops because they would just hang there... taking up space.

But wait, there is more!

Emma & Travis | Stunning Elopement in Positano, Italy

How do you plan a wedding with someone you have been with for a decade? You remember that it's always been you two all along and you take an adventure.

Emma and Travis decided to take their vows and travel to Italy, to the most beautiful little coastal town called Positano. With home far away, they held each others hands as they read their personal vows on a terrace over-looking the Tyrrhenian Sea and the sun-kissed mountain as the sun began to set. The only on-lookers were Landon and I, an honour I can never truly put in to words.

Michelle & Ben | Beautiful Autumn Wedding | Valley Ridge Golf Course

Michelle & Ben both swiped right. That's right, they are a tinder success story! After their first date (phil & seb and a 3 hour walk around mission) Ben said he went home and just knew that he met his wife. They instantly became best friends, they easily laugh together and have even developed their own little language (as it seems whenever I am around them lol.) It was a short 8 months later when Ben proposed. It was just right. Since then they moved in to a new home and welcomed an adorable puppy in to their little family all while planning a wedding! 

When I met them (which I think was almost 2 years ago!) I instantly adored them. They are so light-hearted, love on each other hard but most importantly have a friendship that feels so steady. They don't just love each other, they also really like each other.

Stacy & Nick | Autumn Wedding in Lake Louise, Alberta

Stacy & Nick met at a mutual friends birthday party. Nick was instantly taken with Stacy, she's beautiful, but after talking with her he knew she was so much more; compassionate, strong, and smart. After the party he got the courage to text her to ask if she wanted to join him and some friends to see a movie, Spider Man. When Stacy showed up and saw Nick all alone she asked, "where's your friends?" Nick, being the funny big-hearted man that he is said "I have no friends." Haha! This was his sneaky way to get her to go on a date with him and it worked! 

Stacy has a jam-packed schedule trying to work at the lab, volunteer, and earn her two doctorates so Nick had a challenge of trying to find the right time to propose to her.
