Band Tee’s + Brick Walls

I love music, I love concerts, I love bands, and I love band tee’s. The most recent concert I attended was “Weezer”. It was amazing, and Ryan was nice enough to get me a shirt as a memorable souvenir.

I paired my band tee with high waisted vintage style shorts, a black leather jack and of course my go to white converse. Honestly, I had no intention of getting photos taken or posting about the outfit, but then when we got to the ballpark and saw the large red brick wall I had to.

This outfit is honestly so simple and casual but I think it’s cute and it works. Graphic tee’s have made a come back and I’m grateful they did, they are a signature piece that I don’t think will ever really go out of style.

Weekend in Canmore

A couple weeks ago one of Ryan’s childhood friends said “I do”, and it was the most romantic thing i’ve ever witnessed. The backdrop of the wedding was the mountains (in Canmore), which was breathtaking, they said the most beautiful personal vows to each other and all the decorations were so rustic and vintage looking, it was honestly perfect. Everyone looked great and the weather was definitely on their side (which made the mountains that much prettier).

Getting to walk around and spend some quality family time in a little mountain town like Canmore is honestly like something out of a movie. It’s such a cute little town and it has the best local stores and restaurants.

This was Lukas’ first ever road trip and honestly I wouldn’t have changed a thing about it. We are so blessed to live 3 hours away from such a beautiful place where we can have family trips like this that don’t out us in the poor house and it’s something we can do every year with the kids and they’ll enjoy it too. Point being, this was the perfect trip

Beach Days

Summer has officially arrived in Edmonton, which means we finally get to go to the beach! For an adult the beach is a place to relax, get a tan and maybe have a ice cold drink ( beer or ice coffee, whichever you prefer) but for a 1 year old the beach is a whole new world which needs exploring. Lukas was in and out of the water like a mad man, and we chased after him the whole time. It wasn’t all child’s play though, Ryan and I got to try paddle boarding for the first time (no pictures of us on the board because I didn’t want to loose my phone or camera). There are downsides to the beach however, sun burns and sand in uncomfortable places are inevitable. Regardless of the few minor set backs, it was the perfect day, with perfect weather and perfect company.

Look at the adorable baby gut

Family Weekend

Our lives are crazy busy, it’s always GO GO GO! when we get a chance to take Lukas to the park, we grab it by the horns. He such an energetic kid that it’s great to let him walk around and explore, he also loves the swings! I have never seen a kid look so cute on the swings before, but I’m bias.

I look very afraid in the photo above, and it’s because I am. I didn’t want to push him too hard!

Big Scarves, Leather jackets and ripped jeans

I live for casual, but I also strive for cute. Some day’s that seems almost impossible, but when it finally happens I have to get a photo (or two) for proof. This is pre hockey game, baby’s playing in the living room, impromptu-balcony photo shoot.

How Jealousy affects me

I have never been a jealous person, but I also don’t think I’ve ever been truly in love, until now.

Trying to explain why I get jealous now is like trying to explain how water tastes, I just don’t know. All I know is that it affects me and it hurts me and I’m not entirely sure how to handle it.

I used to think that if you really trusted someone, there would be no need to e jealous but I’ve learned the hard way that that is not always the case. Jealousy is a whole new ball game and trust has nothing to do with it. Confidence, however, does. And I find the more jealous I feel the less confident I am.

I’m not jealous in a sense that I wish I had something someone else has, or I looked like someone else, I’m honestly only jealous when it comes to my relationship. His past strongly affects my present and I don’t know why.

I don’t to travel where he’s traveled with another girl because I know he’s kissed and loved her there. It’s suddenly tainted. I don’t want to wear what his past girlfriends wore because I fear it’ll  make him think of them. And the list goes one. You can see how it affects me.

I understand that this is all irrational and silly, and yet I still can’t help it. I believe in what we have and what our future holds but I can’t let go of his past. I have a past of my own, but for whatever reason my past doesn’t even feel like it existed, it was never important and it was never real.

 

The nights I’ve spent just thinking about it all can drive even the most rational person mad. Mixing anxiety and jealousy has been proved to be deadly (literally) and it’s one of the hardest things I face and it’s my biggest fear and my biggest downfall.

 

how can I control something I can’t even explain? How can I become more “normal”?
