an [instagram] peek..

I almost did a happy dance standing in my favorite bookstore INDIGO, and seeing my house amongst all the home mags.. surreal :)

K and I were able to sneak away for a three day break to the Mountains with no kiddos, it's been three years since we've had a holiday..

We stayed in Banff, and drove up to Lake Louise to go skating on the lake and to have lunch at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise..I was admiring the ceilings..

Back in Banff a stroll around town, and a visit to The Hudsons Bay Company feels so authentically Canadian while in the Rocky Mountains! Loved the window..

ahh, wine, quiet time and alone time ( of course I was blogging ;)

My Calleigh got glasses this month-

we visited grams and grandad in Red Deer and did a little shopping-

We installed my moms GALLERY WALL piece in her home.. I love this vignette-

and while we were there Mom pulled out our wedding picture..we look like such babies!! ( 9 years ago )

and C wanted to take my picture while we stopped to get coffee for the drive home..

new little owls from HM are in the girls rooms..

too cute

a stop at Indigo, my favorite little note pads are $1, I stocked up!

Admiring this gorgeous grey fabric with the pink agate slice I picked up in the mountains-

and today I picked up a new plant.. love :)

Sounds like the perfect weekend to me! Isn't instagram the best! I featured a few snaps today with it too. Love your wedding photo, gorgeous, and your daughter looks so chic in her new glasses! xo

I love this post! I can't even imagine how exciting it would be to see my home in a magazine at Indigo- So inspiring & I love all of your new finds!

Btw, what kind of plant is that?
