All You Need is Love and Some Donuts

I had my first experience at a wedding, working with a donut wall this past Fall and it was so much fun!!

When I first sat down with the couple it was one the first things we discussed. We were lucky enough to have a groom that was super handy and was able to construct the wall. Then it was finding a great bakery that specializes in gourmet donuts. Cake by Design was able to put together an amazing section that were both tasty and aesthetically pleasing. There were so many great designs it was hard narrowing it down to just a few. The bakery was able to use the couples wedding colours (navy, gold and pearl white) when creating the design.

The donut wall is a great way to get your guests involved in the night. There were cute and personalized takeaway bags for each guest to take a donut home with them.

Anniversary Shoot

My husband and I were looking to do something different for our anniversary and thought a photo shoot with our new puppy Willy would be a great idea. As many of you already know, Willy joined the Twist gang a few months ago and we wanted to get some great shots of him as a little puppy. My husband and I had been going back and forth for years about getting a dog and finally were in the right place in our life that we were able to dedicate the time so we pulled the trigger. He is the perfect dog for the two of us as he is able to play rough with James and snuggle up with me at night. What a joy he brings to our already amazing life!

Whoever said you can’t buy happiness forgot little puppies

Birthday Vacation

Birthday Vacation

Going away for my birthday has somewhat become a tradition for my husband and I over the past 5 years. I love travelling to the west coast of Canada as, in my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful places. It has an amazing vibe and some of the most beautiful scenery around. Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE wine - and what's better than spending my birthday travelling to different wineries. After about my third day of drinking, I turned to my husband and said how can anyone get sick of doing wine tasting.  Well, after a full fun day of drinking on my birthday, I woke up to one of the worst hangovers and all I wanted to do was sleep :( There is such a thing as too much wine. 

Here are some of my favorite photos.

Welcome Willy!

I would like to officially welcome the newest member of the Twist Family - Willy!! The moment I saw him for the first time was so magical that it brought tears to my eyes. I was overjoyed with emotion that is hard to describe (most new dog owners probably know what I am talking about). I believe the same can be said for him as well as he was just as excited to be coming to a new home. 

Please enjoy all things Willy below.

European Vacation

I can't believe it has already been 6 months since I got back from my European adventure. A trip my husband and I had been planning since we got back from our honeymoon in Greece. It was hard to decide on what cities we wanted to explore as there are so many we wanted to visit.  We decided on London, Venice, Vienna and Monte Carlo which were all places that I had been dreaming of. It was such a whirlwind with so many amazing experiences - here are just a few of them.  

 

We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.
