Last weekend my husband got the kids together and captured some photos of them making Jessica Glaze’s Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. We needed to bring a dessert to our Father’s Day get together, what better dessert then cookies and icecream… am i right?!

I love that he was willing to take some photos for me to share. I also love how much he captured their little//big personalities in each shot. There is a whole lot of chocolate chip cookie tasting and love happening in these photos.

Van City Business Babes #mompreneurpanel Event

A few weeks ago I got to sit down with the super talented and driven lady behind Van City Business Babes. Danielle is such a pleasure to talk to. When Danielle mentioned that she was planning a Mompreneur Panel night I was so drawn into her vision and wanted to take part to help her make the event a success.

Yesterday I was able to attend Danielle’s successful event, and today I am so thrilled to share some photos I captured. Thank you to all the vendors, sponsors, and of course Danielle for planning such a stunning event at Sky Helicopters. It was such a pleasure to enjoy a relaxing afternoon chatting with so many like-minded, creative and talented woman.

I was excited to try out strawberry picking for the first time, and I have some tips for any of you other first timers out there to ensure you have the best experience. Continue reading
