Changing Leaves

tara 23-1-1

While winter has fully (and I mean fully) arrived in Calgary this week, Rye and I managed to catch a few photos of fall before the snow completely set in. It was nice to be able to walk around and enjoy the colours without having to bundle up in a ton of layers. While I still prefer summer, I will definitely take fall over the snow that does not seem to want to stop falling in Calgary. In the meantime, I am glad that I am bundled up inside classrooms for the foreseeable future.


Skipping Fall


A few weeks ago Rye and I headed into the mountains to get some more coveted shots of Moraine Lake before they close the road for the year. To our surprise, there was already a plethora of snow blanketing the roads and the mountains. Now don’t get me wrong, I do love the mountains in the snow (it is probably one of the most beautiful sites there is and also so iconically Canadian), but it is not a site I want to see in mid-September. Is anyone else as sad as I am about the sudden end of summer?

Weekend Trio

Happy Belated Monday (otherwise known as Tuesday)!

This past weekend I was able to take a quick break from the city and spend a day surrounded by snow-capped mountains, which trust me does not get much better. For me what makes the long, cold, snowy winters so bearable in Calgary is the chance to get away with something so beautiful & majestic. I often times say that I wonder what it would be like to see them for the first time as an adult and truly be breath-taken by their site, as I no longer remember my first encounter with them.

Wishing everyone a fabulous fall week, and a Happy Thanksgiving to all my American Readers.


Snowy Fall Walks


Snowy Days

My favourite part about late fall is that in the mountains it becomes winter a lot faster. There is nothing more calming for me than being surrounded by hundreds of mountains and crisp snowy air. While I know for many the first signs of snow brings anxiety to many as they know the cold winter days are ahead, but I could not be happier when I finally see it falling from the sky. I guess I am one for extremes (hot or cold).

The other day Rye and I went exploring in our own city … okay we actually went to a Corn Maze that had been destroyed (something we did not realize until after getting there). We decided to make the best of it and explore around anyways. What could have been a bit of a let down, turned into an absolutely amazing time. It’s days like these that remind me that you can always make the best of a bad situation and turn it into something great, it just needs to be a conscious choice.

Weekend Trio

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had an amazing Pre-Halloween weekend and was able to dress up or go out for some haunted fun. Rye and I spent Saturday afternoon being tourists in our own city and then dressed up for some Halloween festivities. It is pretty safe to say that yesterday was a full day of recovery on my end and was a true rest and relaxation day.

Wishing everyone an amazingly haunted week filled with lots of sweet surprises!
