Nothing Beats Cake...except Free Cake

Need I say more?


Sunday Evening

Both Jason and I have been quite remiss in our daily picture posting.

I was sick last week, so being stuck inside doesn’t do much for inspiration or motivation, and neither does -25 weather.

Last night I was feeling better and finally pulled out my trusty iPhone camera to take some shots.

So, as an apology, here are some pictures of things that made my Sunday evening a little bit better.


A delicious vanilla sugar cookie scented candle.

Do One Thing A Day That Scares You

My water bottle reminding me to do one thing a day that scares me. After taking this picture I signed up for the 28-day yoga challenge at the Hot Yoga Lounge. February will be the month of yoga (and sweat).

Home Made Chai

Some amazing homemade chai concentrate. It’s totally worth it to follow this recipe and make your own. Yum!

Mockingjay Cover

The cover of the latest book I was reading, Mockingjay, the third book in the Hunger Games series. I stayed up way too late last night finishing the book, but it was worth it.

We may have fallen off a bit on pictures and posting in the later half of January, but I think both Jason and I are rested and revived and ready to start taking pictures again.

Wine two ways

Both Jason and I are finding it somewhat difficult to find something to take a picture of everyday. If the weather would cooperate, I’m sure we’d be out walking, taking pictures of tree, flowers, birds, the sky, etc.

Calgary in the winter is not very conducive to taking interesting photos. How many pictures of snow can one person take?

Note: I’ve taken zero pictures of snow to date. I just can’t bring myself to do it. I hate snow.

Please, stick with us for a bit. We’re both coming off a really long and busy fall and are looking for inspiration daily. Until then, enjoy the picture of the bottle of wine we enjoyed on Monday 🙂

Marking exams for 12 hours on Saturday got in the way of any picture taking. All I wanted to do was crawl into bed, but I did force myself to go for a quick 5km run after getting home 🙂

I’ll try and make it up sometime during the week with some awesome pictures (I’m already beating Jason – he has yet to post a picture!).

Again, I was lazy today and used my iPhone to take a picture of some veggies I cut up for our dinner this evening.

BONUS: An iPhone picture Jason took with my phone.

This whisk is used to make matcha tea and I love it (the tea, not the whisk).

With the weight gain associated with The Holidays and our trip to Mexico, I think it’s time to say good-bye to nightly dessert and hello to nightly matcha tea.

Confession: I ate a Nanaimo bar before making matcha last night, so I really wasn’t that healthy.
