Change; it's a familiar word in my vocabulary, and my life for that matter. "We're moving back to Alberta" my dad said. I felt everything inside of me nearly shut down and I felt scared, excited and sad all at once. I don't want to do this again, I don't want to make new friends, live in a new house and I just don't want to start over. I hate to sound so sad but I am, and sometimes it's okay to feel that way. I've moved enough to be good at it I think, that's not the problem. It's the fact that I have so many incredible friends who I love with all my heart here. I love the land I live on; the ocean, the trees, the fresh sea air, the relaxed feel of it all. That's what I love. I don't think I am ready for this change and I just needed to share it.

A new year, a new start

Another year in this lifetime has flown by, and I'm proud to say it was a good one. It was life-changing, heart wrenching, felt almost impossible at times even, but it was my favourite. I traveled to NYC, made many new friends, discovered new things, took many pictures etc. etc. etc. As sad as I am to see that year gone I am excited more than ever for 2013. It's going to be (and has been) a great year, I can feel it in my bones.

I hope you enjoyed these pictures as much as I do/did? P.S I got my new camera today so there will most definitely be an upcoming post on that :)

Lights and Perks

Tonight I started to feel the Christmas spirit a little bit as I gallivanted through a garden sparkling with rows upon rows of Christmas lights. It felt whimsical and magical, like a dream almost. I have begun to notice this year that my Christmas excitement just isn't there, which obviously makes me sad. It used to be about visiting family, running around my grandparents house playing hide and go seek while we waited to open presents, jumping around in the snow, making people smile, watching Christmas movies and spending time with friends and family. Now I feel like all of that is gone and I have absolutely no idea why, maybe it's because I'm getting older or something. Don't get me wrong, I love this time of year but lately, it just doesn't feel the same. 

In lighter news, I watched The Perks of Being a Wallflower  tonight and it follows up to the book brilliantly! What's going on in your life these festive days?
