I’m the Bonnie to his Clyde. Running some errands after a morning loading up the trailer and truck with hay. This troublemaker is becoming my shadow, he’s the size of a large Jack Russell, and he’s a rambunctious little hoot. Jumps, flips, dives, cuddles, crooning the song of his people through the door to his lady love Pippa. I wish I could take him for walks around town, but he’s such a troublemaker, plus it’s a little to crazy cat lady for me. 


Interview session, part two. 

Ladies and gentlemen,

there is nothing more delightful than watching the next generation grow into wonderful, purposeful, confident, strong women (and men - i happen to have raised three boys). today, i have the privilege of sharing my post with just such a young woman. i first met shannon back in 2006, the year our family returned home to the States for our son andrew’s senior year in high school. i am happy to report that shannon and andrew became fast friends and soon shannon became a frequent visitor to our home. i was lucky enough to share a score of conversations, laughs, and more jelly bellys than i care to remember, as i watched her spread her wings and soar into brave new territory as graduation day fast approached. over the past seven years there have been scores of changes in both of our lives, university, new careers, new cities, new horizons, each of us building new lives. but one thing remained steadfast - our friendship, which is why i was excited to share a photo-op with this sweet young woman when she arrived in San Francisco for a whirlwind trip. i thought it would be fun if we both chose black leather leggings and sneakers for our ootd styled two ways. of course, i went with a more conservative look with an oversized sweater from zara in a burnt orange. but i kept the look a bit youthful with leopard slip-ons from target. shannon’s look is fresh, and on trend with a graphic tee, high-top kicks, and a billowy kimono. she looks fantastic, don’t you think? thanks, sweetie, for being a style muse for the blog. our evening together went by all too fast, but we squeezed in a few drinks, laughs, and a fabulous al fresco meal thanks to the amazing san francisco weather.

There’s nothing I love more for fall than a good chunky knit sweater. I’ve had this one from H&M for awhile now and it’s still one of my favourites. I went for a pretty cozy look and paired it with my favourite scarf from Aritzia and a pair of black jeans. It’s been getting so much colder here that all I really want to do is just bundle up as much as possible.

In other news, I got back really late last night from a quick work trip to northern Alberta and BC. There wasn’t really anything exciting to see and I was in meetings for most of the day, but I should have some pictures up from this trip and my last one to Regina soon. I’m getting a little tired of travel so I’m glad I’m not going anywhere for a bit. I do have a few trips booked for next month though.

I have so much stuff to clean up in my apartment so I’m going to get back to that. Hope you guys have had a great week so far!
