Hannah + Matthew

Hannah and Matthew had an absolute beautiful and perfect day to celebrate their new life together! These two got married on Mother’s Day 2019 ❤ Matt is from Alberta and Hannah is from Saskatchewan – They have a strong love for all things outdoors; especially hiking 🙂 During our floral consultation, Matthew Facetimed in from AB while Hannah and I met in her kitchen to talk about all the wedding details. I wanted to bring the Alberta and Saskatchewan terrains together for their wedding. What wild flowers + grasses would they see during a hike in AB and in SK? My inspiration for their wedding flowers came from that thought. Continue reading

My Scale’s Not Balanced

This morning I was reading my devotional book, “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young. I love this book – It is constantly making me aware of how God’s Word should be impacting our lives in every moment of our day.

“I am a mighty God. Nothing is too difficult for me. I have chosen to use weak ones like you to accomplish My purposes. Your weakness is designed to open you up to My power. Therefore, do not fear your limitations or measure the day’s demands against your strength. What I require of you is to stay connected to Me, living in trusting dependence on My limitless resources. When you face unexpected demands, there is no need to panic. Remember that I am with you. Talk with Me, and listen while I talk you through each challenging situation.

I am not a careless God. When I allow difficulties to come into your life, I equip you fully to handle them. Relax in My presence, trusting in my strength.”

“For nothing will be impossible with God.” – LUKE 1:37

I found what I read encouraging this morning because when I look at everyone else, they all seem to have their lives together. Whereas I feel like I’m constantly struggling to keep my head above water. We all have a lot we’re managing… or at least appearing to manage anyways. When I feel like I’m doing awesome in one area of my life, I look over my shoulder and realize I’ve allowed my broccoli to boil dry… (which literally happened the other day) Do you ever feel that way? At one point you feel like you’re killing it – Maybe your fitness routine; your eating regular healthy meals and hitting your work out goals and then you realize you’ve been a terrible friend and haven’t talked to some people in over a month. Or maybe you’ve been an awesome friend and have been able to go connect several times with everyone this month only to realize you’ve let things slide at work and are now behind on the seemingly easy tasks. We’ve all been there, I’m sure of it. I just feel like I’m in that mental sink hole more often than those I compare myself with.

“And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.” – 2 CORINTHIANS 12:9

This morning I feel God was making me aware of the areas that I’m failing in to help me depend on Him more. I hate these growing pains – I wish I just had it and was doing good at everything! But I know that God is opening my eyes to see these things because He loves me and doesn’t want me to burn myself out on things that don’t matter. With this awareness, I know I need to be asking God what is important and what is not as important. What things are actually needed in my life and what are tasks I’m putting on myself that drain me? It’s not bad to have all these extra tasks, but it is bad when we start putting these “extras” ahead of the needed things.

Balancing life is hard friends. But God is good.

– Stay Satisfied

Then we will scoot over to Jerusalem, Israel and spend another week before heading home; true north, strong + free. Continue reading

Bucket List: Go Snuba Diving

No it’s not a spelling mistake 😉 Snuba diving is a combination of snorkeling + scuba diving! It’s on my Bucket List to also go scuba diving- But this was my first go and I had to share the experience! My family and I went to Maui, Hawaii a couple years ago and we went snorkeling with Sail Trilogy at the Molokini Crater just off of Maui island. 10/10 would recommend – Solid 5 stars and 2 thumbs up! 😀 Continue reading

National Kitchen and Bath: Kitchen Competition

This project is way back from college, but I wanted to share it with you anyways 🙂

Most of you guys know that I went to Lakeland College for their Interior Design Technology program. I adored the program and would 10/10 recommend anyone interested in this career to check out that school. Anyways, one major perk about Lakeland is that it’s credited by the NKBA {National Kitchen and Bath} Continue reading
