Good Days

I hope everyone that is reading this is having a really good day. And if you are not, just know that in every new minute that passes you have an opportunity to change that. - Gillian Anderson

Choose kindness. Choose happiness. Choose love. Life is way too short and way too precious.

Our Engagement Shoot @ Edward's Garden

I almost can't believe that I'm marrying Edward this Saturday. It's absolutely insane! I know everyone says the time goes by so fast but it really does.

I genuinely enjoyed all the wedding planning Edward, and being your fiancée, but now I'm just excited that I soon get to be your wife.

Every photo was taken at the place where it all started, Edward's Garden in Toronto, by the talented Whitney Heard (Check her out here). I’ve always dreamed about my engagement shoot with Edward, and I still can’t believe you captured a silly couple like us so beautifully.

The next time I post, I'll probably be a married woman 0.o lol!

Sunday Denim

I originally had another outfit on this morning, but because I somehow attract accidents my little cousin knocked a cup of coffee all over it. I needed to change out of it really quick, or I'd be late for church, and I immediately reached for this classic outfit. You could never go wrong with a simple pair of black jeans (Calvin Klein) and a white top (thrifted).

I never meant to take an OOTD but when I see a black wall (though this one is hella dirty), I can't help but force the fiancé to take a photo lol!

Take care as always guys!

Portraits by Whitney Heard Photography

Edward & I had our engagement shoot on Wednesday, but we had a little fun with these solo portraits of me at the end of the shoot. We haven't gotten all the photos yet (eagerly waiting!) but I thought I'd share with you a couple photos that she has finished editing and that I love.

Whitney is an amazing photographer and is a true artist. When I was looking around for a photographer she was on top of my list and I'm so glad that we were able to secure her for our wedding. I immediately fell in love with her passion and all the work she puts into her photography, and I believe she's gonna capture our wedding perfectly! She has a positive attitude and is just a joy to work with. Ahhh... I could go on, but check her out here yourself.

Take care!

my face is not allowed in the photo because it did not cooperate with me. such things must be done sometimes.

1°C for me means it’s finally warm enough to air out my knees. (It’s common knowledge that knees need to be aired out at least once a week.) Oh...I love the sun, and all the beautiful warmth and joy it brings.

I found this jacket at the thrift store, and the sweater at a buy one get one sale at forever 21. They were both pieces that my fiancé picked out and since they’re so comfortable and cozy (which is all I wanted to be today), I’m not complaining.
