My cousin Kristy is celebrating the official opening of her beautiful home spa this weekend. La Chic Boutique Spa has been a dream of Kristy’s for years. It was exciting to have a “preview” visit a few weeks ago to photograph her space. And last week, I spent a wonderful two hours at the spa, prepping for my Arizona trip with a manicure and pedicure.

Vancouverites know that by the middle of November, we’ve past the point of no-return. Winter is here and most days, that means dark clouds and rain. Maybe if we get lucky, we’ll enjoy the sun for a few hours… one day a week. But a stretch of sun? That ain’t happening until May. It’s the perfect time to escape to the desert, and lucky for me, my parents bought a place in sunny Arizona last year. We were raised travelling to one “hot” climate a year, usually around Spring Break. Hawaii, Palm Springs and Phoenix were our favourites. But Phoenix became our favourite of all. No end of things to do and see (it’s a huge city!), incredible weather (but avoid May to September) and no “touristy” vibe.

I love this beautiful family: Shawna and Paul and their two beautiful boys, Jacob and Cole. I met Shawna before she was pregnant with Jacob and loved watching their family grow. I remember visiting her in the hospital the day Cole was born, too! I adore these boys and their sweet smiles. It was a joy to capture their family again this year — I think it’s the 3rd or 4th Christmas in a row we have! ;)

I don’t know where to start. I could start with my 5 (unexpectedly-turned-6) days in Montreal. Perhaps I could follow with the minor concussion a door gave me [okay, that I gave myself] on Halloween. Then I could finish by sharing what’s exciting in life right now.
