Weekend Catch Up #7

Happy Weekend everyone and to all my fellow Canadians happy Thanksgiving – AND to all my fellow Americans (yes, I’m both) we all know that the real Thanksgiving is in November exactly one month BEFORE Christmas ;). It’s funny that I’ve lived in Canada longer than anywhere else and am in some ways more Canadian than American (I apologize even when it’s NOT my fault!), yet there is still some American in me and to me Thanksgiving is in November – always has been and always will be…except in Canada! But, hey long weekend and turkey? I’ll take it! On today’s agenda I got pretty much nothing after sleep in and make coffee…

todays list - make coffee...


The last few weeks have been really good – super busy as  usual – but really good. I don’t really have a huge high or low, which isn’t a bad thing I guess. My high point over the last few weeks has definitely been the gorgeous weather we’ve been having here in Vancouver!! We had a record breaking warmth over the last weekend and it’s been fun to get outside and enjoy it when I can – especially to take some lovely autumn pictures :). The low points over the last few weeks has just been how tired I’ve been feeling – which just makes everything that much more difficult. Also I’m finding my People Photography class quite challenging with the different teaching and critique style…so then I doubt myself and question if I’m even cut out for photography. Those are my low points.


My Favorite Tunes of the Week:

1. Settle Down – by The 1975 – I really am loving this band! This is my second favorite song of theirs (the first one is “Chocolate” – go listen to that one too!!), and I just can’t get enough of it…it’s kinda on repeat a lot.

2. Wrecking Ball (Cover) – by Eli Lieb – I am obsessed with this song! Eli does such a beautiful job covering this song and is crazy talented!

3. French Navy – by Camera Obscura – just super fun and I love her voice!

4. You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone – by Anna Kendrick – this song gets stuck in my head every time I hear it! Hope you like it as much as I do :).
