    What does BEAUTI mean to you?

    beau-ty (n.pl.) Any of those attributes of form, sound, color, character, behavior, achievement, etc., which give pleasure and gratification to the senses or to the mind. Something excellent of its kind.

    BEAUTI is more than physical attractiveness. BEAUTI surrounds us in many forms.

    BEAUTI portrayed inside and out. BEAUTI at every age, in every stage of life. BEAUTI of this incredible world we live in. BEAUTI of emotions and feelings of the moment. BEAUTI that cannot be put into words.

    Discovering. Cherishing. Capturing.

These Prairie Skies | December

Each month I plan to share a little of a personal project I am doing in 2016.  One of the best things about living in the country on the Saskatchewan prairies is our view of these incredible skies!  Instead of only getting a shot on my iPhone I am making a conscious effort this year to capture the gorgeous, colourful, lively skies with my professional camera.  I plan to create a photo book with a collection of favorite images at the end of the year.  So at the end of each month or beginning of the next I will share a few favorite captures from that month.  Sharing here will also hold me accountable and help to keep me consistent throughout the year!

Well the last month of photographing our prairie skies for the year of 2016 has finished which means it’s time to go back through all the photos and choose favorites to put into a photo book!  I will share details once the book is designed and ready to print as a few people have shown interest in purchasing a copy.  We live in a part of the world that has fabulous, interesting, colorful and living skies so it will be fun to create a collection of beautiful prairie skies.  I love these prairie skies!   The beauty, how quickly it changes, the vibrancy and patterns.  It is fascinating!!  This was a fun project for 2016 and I’m glad I completed one of my missions for the year and know I will continue to notice + capture it as I always have.  Here’s some of my December photos to complete the series.

Stewart Reunion 2016

With the holiday season here and a time of year that most are anticipating to gather with their family, I’ll share these photos from our Stewart family reunion.  There’s a photo book with an abundance of photos that really shows all that was fit into the weekend.  This is just some highlights.  It was a memorable weekend of the summer and a very fun time!!  There’s five sisters in one family of cousins that were the incredible planners.  There is so much to think about and prepare with a group of over a hundred people and they did amazing!!  With grandparents that had eight children and were a wonderful influence to their children + grandchildren they passed on the importance of family and spending time together.  There were lots of activities and games in teams that got all ages to mingle and everyone was part of the fun.  Thanks again to the ones that organized and hosted!!  It really was a super weekend!  A great time at the “country fair”!!

Another 30 days flew by and there were overcast days but when there was color in the sky it was like November cranked up the intensity.  Such vibrant colors!  It’s always a beautiful sight to take in the natural beauty.  Especially days when the only time the sun came out was at sunset displaying these colors and designs.  I have no way to properly calculate a number but I snapped away for quite a while as a ginormous flock of geese made it’s way south directly above our yard.

Vancouver | Fall Getaway

We had a wonderful getaway at the beginning of the month to the beautiful city of Vancouver.  We celebrated our 9th anniversary then enjoyed time with my younger sister and also my cousin + her family.  Of course there was rain but we did luck out with nearly 2 days of no rain and even a stunning sunrise one morning.  The first hotel we stayed at has complimentary bicycle rentals so even in the pouring rain the first day we cycled all around Stanley Park, English Bay, Granville Island and some of downtown.  The bonus was the bike paths were pretty much just ours!  So the next morning when it wasn’t raining I requested to bike again around Stanley Park when I could actually take photos on my camera.  Good thing we put on the miles because we scouted out some great restaurants, gluten free treats and scrumptious waffles for breakfast.  Eating is part of the fun of being away as we rarely eat out when we are at home.  Of course the restaurants right by the ocean were our favorite dining experiences!

A couple interesting, fun places we went were the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park where we really enjoyed time up in the treetops and then headed back downtown to even greater heights at the Vancouver Lookout.  It was the end of the day so we took in the 360 views late in the afternoon then stayed up to see the lights of downtown at dusk too.  With the rainy weather I didn’t have my camera sometimes but here’s some of what I captured in our time away to the westcoast.
