  • Do you desire a life where you know and live your inner purpose? That instead of floating through life you know exactly what your true desires are and living to your fullest potential? Do you feel like what you are longing for is just hidden under the surface and once you discover it there will be no holding you back?

This new life that I’ve recently been living has allowed my eyes to open to the beauty that surrounds me.  I’ve always known it was there, but experiencing it and seeing it in my mind are 2 different things.  At the end of the week a very good friend of mine called me up and let me know he was going to be in town for the afternoon.  So we gathered up our cameras and headed out into my neighbourhood – Gastown.

I was determined to find some interesting/artistic shots since I tend to enjoy taking photos of people more.  Something I realized this weekend though – I *love* detail shots.  There is something about creating such emotion with a few little details that I get all excited about it!

We made our way to the New Convention Centre and whatever comment I might have made to him before we reached it (something along the lines of….”I don’t like it”) I immediately took back once I saw this beautiful location.  I’m swooning over this!

I just got back from my first visit to a public library in I swear…10 years; I had to sign up for a card and everything!  It is not that I didn’t want to go to the library over the past 10 years, it’s just….well….I was delinquent on returning some books back in high school that resulted in some…fines and now they won’t let me take out any more books – at the particular city.  Now I’m in a new city…muahahahaha. :)  Anyway, I had a mission and I went to the library to accomplish it.  Completely forgetting that there are computers now where you can enter in the title of the book you are looking for I just asked the front desk where the business section was.

“4th floor”.

So up I went.  2 escalator rides later I found myself on the 4th floor surrounded by rows upon rows of books.  If it wasn’t for the odd man sitting at a table laughing at my overwhelmed face, I’m sure I would have stood there longer trying to find my bearings.  But since he was chuckling at me, I charged right ahead into the sea of books.

I weaved in and out finding myself more and more confused until I saw a sign that said “Small Business”.  I almost put up my hand and screamed “That’s me!!”.  But don’t worry, I contained myself.  I turned the corner into the section and came face to face with an overwhelming amount of small business books.  I had no idea where to begin.  I knew the book I was looking for was already checked out, but I was here to get some more inspiration and information.  Where does one start when faced with more than enough opportunities?  Do what anyone will do who is attracted to things visually – look for the best title, some colour, and some good typeography.

Note: No I’m not planning on getting rich, it’s the front of the book (fishes!) and the content of the book that attracted me.

For the past three years Adam and I go to a tree farm to cut down our Christmas tree.  And every year I look forward to running around the farm, finding the perfect tree, and then running around some more to see if there is a better one.

This year was no different except that I had my face behind the lens of the camera most of the time trying to tell the story of us searching for our tree.

Need to find the perfect tree, so the search begins…..

And search some more…..

And continue to search….

How about I take a photo with a tree, this searching is tiring!

This is my second favorite photo of the trip!

How about this tree?

I think we found our tree!

Me, attempting to cut it down….

Adam takes over and in 2.2 seconds it’s done.

Adam is my hero!!! (My favorite photo from the day)

Welcome home Christmas tree!

Part two of decorating the tree will come later.:)
