TMW: You're Almost Finishing Grad School (and Have a FABULOUS Capstone Client -- Love & Carrots!)

Interjecting a bit about my grad school life here, since, *technically* it's the thing that's taking up the biggest chunk of my non-9-to-5 time these days...

I can't remember the last time I wrote about school, besides my initial, 'Hey look, I'm getting my Master's' post back in 2015. Well, believe it or not, I've survived almost 1.5 years of continuous evening classes and have arrived at my last semester, yay!

In order to graduate, all the students in my program have to complete a final Capstone class where we focus on providing a full Strategic Communications plan for a client of our choice.

Sounds simple, right? Wrong! It's going to be A LOT more work than it sounds, trust me!

Anyway, after much consideration and digging, I'm so proud to announce that I will be working with a local urban farming company, Love & Carrots, for my Capstone class.

I'm so ready to get started... and already so ready to be done and be a master!

Flashback Friday: Leaves and Friends and Hiking in the Fall Colors

As I was organizing my hard drives this past week, I came across a long-lost impromptu shoot I did of my friends Zach and Clare that I knew just had to share.

A bit of back story to these photos: Sometime this past October, Mr. Man and I were on a hike with our friends Zach and Clare at Rock Creek Park.

I just happened to have my camera on-hand incase we saw something beautiful when Clare mentioned that she was wondering if I could find some time to good photo of them for their Christmas card this year.

The leaves, the crisp cool air, the impromptu-ness --- I just couldn't resist the moment and suggested we should just take those photo here and now!

Sometimes, spur of the moment things are wonderful, right?

Hanging on to the Holidays: The Last Snaps from My Canada Trip at Vermillion Lakes

With the memory of New Year's Day well behind me, I've been reminiscing more and more about the wonderful time I was able spent with my family in Canmore, Alberta, Canada over the holidays.

As ya'll saw on a few of my other posts, Mr. Man and I enjoyed a wonderful snow, skating and kiddo-filled holiday in the great white north.

In between chatting with family members, heading to a Calgary Flames game, bumming around Banff and generally taking it easy, we managed to make to to Vermillion Lakes during on of our last days in Canmore.

I of course had my camera and HAD to take some photos. I mean, its BEAUTIFUL there!

Here's a few snaps I was able to catch (don't worry, this is the last batch I have from Canada!):
