Congrats to my amazing brother @shaneb31h and his beautiful new wife @angelanahamko on their very special marriage Today....such special memories and families coming together for a day I’ll never forget..... Feb 22nd 💒❄️💫👰🏼🤵
No renunciar a mis sueños es lo que hace cada uno de mis días interesante. Mis sueños me han llevado muy lejos, tanto que en el camino he conocido personas extraordinarias rodeadas de paisajes que ni en mis mejores sueños habría podido imaginar.
GRACIAS por acompañarme en este viaje llamado vida (a ti que lo estás leyendo)❤️ @travelalberta
@skiericcarter and I had a plan A today, but the ice wasn’t confidence inspiring and he had to get back to present at a conference so we bailed and went for a hot lap up on Rogan’s Gulley, an easy local route, instead. It’s rad to cover lots of moderately technical ground quickly.
Eric is one of North America’s top skimo racers and has Fastest Known Times on routes like the Spearhead traverse, Mt Rainier, Mt Baker, Sky Pilot, Tantalus traverse etc...his research is in high altitude physiology (details are likely too complicated for me to understand). He is also very involved with promoting “aerobic alpinism” in the Coast and across Canada. It’s always a pleasure spending time with him in the mountains because we share very similar interests, goals, risk tolerance and I trust his competence. Thanks for a fun few days buddy 👊
Got to enjoy some outstanding coffee in an amazing location with the Nanopresso portable espresso machine by @wacaco_official. Nothing beats a warm cup of quality coffee in the winter. It just warms you from the inside out and gives you that extra boost of energy to keep moving. Coffee and company are an essential part to any adventure. You meet with friends for a coffee at the shop, but why not also meet for a coffee on top of a mountain?
We used 16g of freshly roasted Ethiopian coffee from @rogue_wave_coffee that had notes of strawberry, cream, and cherry. They’re a newly open café/roastery in Edmonton, AB and they have tons of different varietals that cover all sorts of flavor profiles. Huge thanks to them for supplying the beans and helping power the hike! I highly recommend their “Finca Quejina” and “Burtukaana” coffees.

When we re-enter the natural world, we are reminded of our natural requirements. We require air to breathe, the sun to kiss our skin, water to nourish our bodies, the rain to feed all nature. When we re-enter the natural world, we are reminded that we truly require so little. A small shelter to find safety and reclusion. A walk to pump blood through our body. And yet, knowing this, we make our lives so complex. When we re-enter the natural world, we are reminded of our beginnings, our feeble lives seem smaller, the world itself seems bigger, a welcoming home for us. 🖌@roamandgolightly ✨ Dame Traveler @benedikteroness 🇨🇦 #dametravelercanada#dametraveler
I never thought I’d be sharing a stage with @tonyhawk!! His story is incredible, he’s totally taken the road less traveled to build an incredible brand. He also said kids ask him why he was named after a video game ... 🤔 @cultgathering with @ryangillshares has been such a great time!
It’s crazy how the closer you get to know the Lord, the more you begin to appreciate everything around you.
What was once dull becomes beautiful. Those lonely silences become soul-fulfilling conversations. And those dark, rainy evenings become peaceful, not depressing. Your slow, traffic-packed drive home is just more time to meditate upon His word and His promises. The beauty that comes with knowing God becomes evident in everything. 💛
Es mi primera vez en @travelalberta y estoy muy impresionado de su belleza natural.
En caso que ya conozcan Canadá me darán razón, pero si no lo han hecho, pronto dense la oportunidad de enamorarse de este gran país. 🇨🇦 #mybanff#explorealberta
Banff National Park, Canada // “Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.”- Dwight D. Eisenhower // 📸: @stevint // #wpplacestogo
These icy trees. ❄️ This frozen lake. ⛄️ A fresh blanket of white glistening snow. 💙
I used to think summer was where it’s at. But after visiting Banff in the winter, I now see the wild appeal, despite wearing numerous layers and re-applying chapstick every 10 minutes (true story). 🤣
Banff, you’ve effortlessly converted me to an enthusiastic winter person 🇨🇦. I don’t dread the freezing temps and I’m proud to say the thought of driving in snowy/icy conditions doesn’t terrify me anymore. Can’t wait to share lots more from this perfect winter wonderland. 💕
Are you Team Summer or Team Winter? -

Today on our blog we are sharing how we painted ceramic floor tiles! The tiles in the kitchen and bathroom of our basement were green and they needed to go.. We decided to paint them and stencil each one! They turned out to be fabulous! Check out the link in our bio to see the steps we took. Swipe left to see before and after pictures!
On another note, we are headed back to Banff, Alberta this weekend! Just another weekend to relax and enjoy the scenery! Let's pray the roads will be clear and the temperatures aren't too cold!
Hey y’all...it’s been a minute since I’ve posted in here and I’ve had several of you reach out to make sure I was ok, which is so sweet and appreciated! These past few months have been extremely busy but also filled with some amazing travels (I do try to update my stories when I’m traveling...but need to be better about posting pictures in a timely manner). So I’m going to pick up where I left off...in the incredibly stunning Canadian Rockies! A place that should be on everyone’s bucket list, it truly is beautiful! Yes, the water is that blue...gorgeous, right?
We spend our family day weekend in Banff this year with 2 of our favourite friends. Even though we were warned of “extreme blizzards” we decided to strap on our ice-cleats and finally get around to hiking Johnson Canyon! If you’re planning on walking this trail anytime soon make sure to invest in some quality winter gear (including ice-cleats) as the canyon is quiet, cold and icy!
