oak & honey

I designed these cards a while ago, and thought it'd be nice to show them to you now.

Oak & Honey Photography is a lovely little partnership business based in the Toronto area led by two wonderful ladies, Gabriela and Stine. Their photographs reflect life, beauty, and sophistication. And they always seem to bring a refreshing unique touch to each of their work.
Not to mention they are a delight to be around!

Please do check out their blog here, or their Facebook page.
And if you are looking for engagement, wedding, or event photographers, I recommend contacting them here.

A "weekend getaway" we called it (but a weekend up north consisting of kids, food, and sleep is all it was).

3 days, 4 ladies in a tiny cabin by the lake, 27 children to take care of, and too much food.

I shared a little house with some of my favorite people, and it wasn't difficult to enjoy every moment of the day, despite our tired states. I am grateful for them in my life, and am most definitely looking forward to the coming getaways of this summer.
It is set to be a wonderful one.

Spend it with the ones who matter the most. Invest your time in the people who are most important to you.

Lovely days

This seems to sum up my week or two quite well.

There's a new self-serve frozen yoghurt place by my house, and I seem to be drawn there quite often. The coconut and mango flavours always seem to end up in my cup. Refreshing, really, and recommended!

I've been drinking many matcha green tea drinks lately, hot and iced. Those have been nice, also. I used to think they were strange (by the color, of course...I mean, that green!) but have quickly adapted and now seem to be craving for some all the time.

There's something quite wonderful about sharing lovely treats like these with friends. It makes for lovely days, indeed.

the end of may, the beginning of june.

I seem to learn something different every day about what it means to be human. What I thought to be true yesterday will become strange tomorrow, and I'm learning to be okay with that.
I'm learning to be okay with being wrong.

I spent many hours this week working on a few design projects (which I'm excited about) accompanied by tea and coffee, and despite it not being the very best week, good changes are around me.
We make these plans in our heads, and get comfortable to the idea, and when the plans fall through, it's uncomfortable and uncertain and confusing. And I am most certainly not one that adapts to change right away.
But I know that it will be okay, and everything I trust will happen will happen. And a dream doesn't break because something isn't clear or it doesn't go as planned.
Know that it will come through.
Trust that you get through.

A wonderful week ahead. I am sure.
