Happy June everyone! The start of this summer month means weddings, weddings, and weddings! To kick off the season, I’d like to share some of the photos I snapped during a friend’s wedding earlier this month. It was a very unconventional wedding – from the green Victorian-style dress, the red Converse chucks, to the Beauty & The Beast wedding cake. I have only chosen to share a couple of photos, taken with a Nikon AF-S DX 35 mm f1.8G and a Nikon AF-S DX 50 mm f1.8G. But please check back. Let’s just say I’ve been on a slew of adventures, and I’ll soon be sharing more!
Hi all — this is now my final week co-hosting the “Linkin’ with my Ladies” blog hop. I wan to thank Katie for hosting and including all of us, and thank everyone who has stopped by my blog to leave a meaningful comment. Let’s end this week on a high note, and be sure to leave a comment if you want me to follow you! Remember, to share your site, read more below.
Yesterday, Toronto saw about 30 centimetres of snow. It was one of the biggest snowfalls we’ve had in years, and many residents in southern Ontario woke up to piles of the white stuff engulfing their vehicles, mounting their driveways and most of all, giving them a great excuse to take a day off work.
The windchill made it feel like almost -25C, and I tried my best to stay warm indoors. Luckily for me, Thursdays and Fridays are my days off. But this morning, I took a walk down the snowy pathways, and took a few photos to remember the storm, even though it had mostly dissipated.
The Fredericksburg Rail Worker’s Museum (RWM) is run by a handful of old timers that have worked in the railroad industry in some capacity. They’re not open very often, as a matter of fact only on weekends. When I got a call from my bro in-law to go see them, I jumped on the opportunity to go see these guys. Before I knew anything about the Rail Worker’s Museum, I had assumed that it was going to be some grand indoor museum with large trains and rail cars reminiscent of the 1920s and 1930s. Sadly, I was wrong, but that didn’t take away from the experience, the breadth of knowledge and enthusiasm these guys had more than made up for it.
Max is an honorary member of the RWM, definitely not an imposing guard dog, but this photo was too cute to pass up. He rides with his owner on the Maintenance car that takes people for a 30 minute tour ride around Fredericksburg.
One of my biggest challenges has always been finding clothes I feel comfortable in, and that look appropriate for work – generally, I enjoy wearing yoga pants and graphic t-shirts. But recently, I started a new job where I meet with other business professionals on a daily basis – and needles to say, I need nice fashion for work.
I can’t buy a whole new wardrobe at once, but if Stacey and Clinton (What Not to Wear) have taught me anything, it’s to collect solid pieces, that you can mix and match. I hope you can join me as I work to develop my own style, and please leave your suggestions and related links.
My first new items of clothing include Aritzia’s Talula Exeter Blazer, dubbed a school boy blazer with a snug fit, and a couple of coloured T. Barton tanks, available for only $35 at Aritzia. They’re perfect for layering under sweaters, shirts and evidently blazers.
