A sneak peek of a film for my children to look back on. . . Right now they think it’s pretty cool that mom made a movie about them, but I hope in the future they appreciate the preservation of a treasured childhood memory. . . ALSO I’m kind of proud that I managed to get myself in the film. Okay, technically I only got my hand, but it did take some finagling and weird angles with my camera holding hand, so I still consider it an accomplishment. . . You can watch the whole thing and read why this film became even more important to me in the days following our session over on my blog. Click on the link in my bio to get there and learn the story behind the film (warning: I get a little deep). . . . . #familyfilmmaker #familyfilms #rememberingthesedays #candicetkachukphotography #draytonvalleyphotographer #draytonvalleyfamilyphotographer #edmontonfamilyphotographer #edmontonphotographer #edmontonfilmmaker #draytonvalleyfamilyfilms #theheartcaptured #inbeautyandchaos #thehonestlens #parenthood_unveiled #adventuresofchildren #letsgetreal #realnotperfect #beautifulmess #findyourbeautiful #choosereal #shamoftheperfect #therebelliousstoryteller #thebeautifulreal #candidchildhood #deeplyauthentic #collectmemoriesnotthings #momentsoverthings #memoriesoverthings #momentsoverposes #filminglifefeaturedfilms

About last night It’s all about the balance - sometimes you need the calm and peaceful moments to center But sometimes you just want to go out and have fun in a big city with loud music, food and drinks and dancing.

Collect memories not things ⁣⁣ ⁣ Did you know that 100 billion new clothes are made each year , and 6 out of 10 of clothes produced end up in landfills ?⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I have been trying to buy less material things over the last few years in an attempt to reduce my waste #fortheplanet . My rule is that I only buy something if I am absolutely in love with it or can’t live without it. One positive side effect of this is that I have more moneyto go on adventures ️.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ We spent two days paddling through the stunning emerald waters of Halong Bay where we discovered beautiful caves, floating villages and magical sunsets ️. The memories from this trip make me so much happier than new clothes ever would .⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Anyone else trying to buy less to reduce their impact on the planet ? What have you been spending that extra money on? What kind of experiences would you like to have more of? ‍️🤹‍️‍️‍️🧗‍️‍️

I’ve finally gotten down to planning my first solo trip properly and I couldn’t be more excited ‍️ According to some, it’s a whole other level of holiday planning 🤷‍️ Well, what can I say... I like it full-on Leslie Knope style . . Moje przygotowania do wyjazdu nabrały tempa i w końcu poczułam ten wycieczkowy dreszczyk! ‍️ Kto ze mną podróżował ten wie, że bez mapy, list i prezentacji w PowerPoint się nie obejdzie . . #cats#catsofinstagram#holiday#planning#adventureawaits#excited#passport#camera#curiouskitty#itsacatsworld#leslieknope#parksandrec#treatyoself#girlpower#intentionalliving#hygge#girlscan#traveler#goexplore#photooftheday#collectmemoriesnotthings#wellbeingwarrior#happythoughts#happyplace#flatlay#weeklyfluff#olympus

Don't wait for the perfect moment. Take the moment and make it perfect.

Some of the most powerful times are when we're quiet. - Michael W. Smith⁣⠀ __________________⁣⠀ I miss driving Pearl way out on 4x4 roads - out to where there is no cell reception and not a single soul in sight - out to where there is nothing else to do but be quiet. ⠀ - - - ⁣⠀ I don’t see quiet time as an escape from real, busy life…I see it as foundational. ⁣⠀ - - - ⁣⠀ Quiet time - the ability to quiet my mind, read a book, be out in nature, daydream, and marinate in my own aura, disconnected from people and technology - is my foundation for showing up fully and powerfully related with the people in my life. ⁣⠀ - - - ⁣⠀ Without one, there is not the other. ⁣⠀ - - - ⁣⠀ Sometimes it’s flipping through a friend’s book, sometimes it’s taking photos, sometimes it’s sitting quietly and just listening…that feeling of anticipation before an epic sunset, with nothing pressing or a “have to do” to pass the time.⁣⠀ - - - ⁣⠀ I crave times like these - I yearn for them - and I’m learning to create them in my stationary life. Slowly but surely. ⁣⠀ - - - ⁣⠀ Although, I may find myself out on a secluded road again before too long - just to remind myself who I am. ⁣⠀ 4/11/2018⁣⠀⁣⠀ •⁣⠀ •⁣⠀ •⁣⠀ #lifeontheroad #optoutside #shareyourstory #solovanlifer #vanlifediaries #pushpause #quiettime #collectmemoriesnotthings #liveyouradventure #homeiswhereyouparkit #womenwhoexplore #wanderlust #exploremore #solotravel #traveldiaries #vangirlsrule #wanderlustwomen #getoutstayout #reformlife #vanlifer #1000contemporarynomads #vancrush #homeonwheels #vanlifemovement #createdlife #vangirlsrule #lifeofadventure
