~Autumn Roadtrip Toque~ Everyone, I finally did it! After years of struggling with self doubt and over thinking, I have finally released my first design, in collaboration with my friend @kozykomforts 🙌 🍂 The Autumn Roadtrip Toque was inspired during a recent trip to British Columbia. I brought yarn, knitting needles and a general idea of what I hoped to design. As the miles flew by and the scenery slowly changed from prairie to foothills and finally to mountains, my knitting needles flew and I thought of our upcoming adventures. I thought about how much my family and I had been looking forward to the trip and how it would be our first time camping in the mountains. 🍁 By time we arrived at Lac Des Arcs, a new, preteen son approved toque had been brought to life. 🍂 It's warm, cozy, easily customizable, a super quick knit, and perfectly suited for outdoor life and adventures! Even adventurous beginners can take on this design with great success! ☺️ Head on over to ravelry (fortlascelle), give the design a like, add me as a friend, if you like 😉 and get a copy for yourself! 🍁 If you've read this far, I think you deserve a thank you..........So how about a giveaway??

I don’t think I ever gave this day enough credit. I remember seeing a photo of this lake and thinking “I need to go there, I have to see this for myself.” As easy as it was for me to fall in love with the idea of going, I thought it would take a lot of convincing to get my friends on board for it. Much to my surprise, just like me, my friends just needed to see a picture of these incredible lakes and they were on board. So, we all maneuvered through our tricky schedules, and we found a day that worked for all of us. As excited as we all were for the 5 hour hike, we had a 3 hour drive just to get there! We all decided that we didn’t want to be getting home really late, so in order to avoid that, we obviously had to get up really early. Once the day of the hike came, I woke up at 4:30, and waited for @joannamarie1997 And @lane.thielen to meet at my house for breakfast. After breakfast, we picked up Danny, and we were on our way! I assumed there would be a lot of complaints on the hike, and my friends wondering why the hell I dragged them on this hike with me. Luckily, the first of the three lake was maybe 5 minutes into the hike, and as soon as we saw the colour of the lake, we were in for the long haul. The hike got more difficult the higher we went, but I swear, seeing those lakes made us forget how sore we were. Once we finished the hike, we went to whistler, and we had some dinner and strolled around the village. As we got home, we were sore, and exhausted, but spending an entire day laughing until your cheeks hurt, really makes you appreciate the people you get to have by your side. It was the most incredible day.
Last year I was rolling into cottage country to the most amazing thanksgiving with @pausji and @oskarmeowmeow after a LONG haul across Canada. This year I’m missing them in YVR. Life is crazy journey and I’m never really too sure what to expect, but the only constant seems to be how eternally grateful I am for the life I’ve been given and all those I get to share it with. ❤️✨👫 . #thanksgiving #turkeyday #thankful #journey #travel #explorecananda #travelphotography #iphone #iphonephotography #throwback #love # happy #grateful #sky #clouds #sunset #roadtrip

We all could use a little more sunshine on our coast and a little less smoke, but first rain! Hoping the forecast keeps calling for rain to give the fires and firefighters some relief! - #strangetreesociety #sunshinecoastbc #britishcolumbia #patches #bcoutdoors #explorebc #explorecananda
Tofino with my besties was a grand adventure of chasing sunsets, beaches, and fish tacos 🌮 🌅 🏖

One of those places that photographs well with any camera, lighting, filter or skill #banff
All good hikes involve a creek.

Throwback to Capri in September 2014. Need to book my next vacation asap!
I must be daydreaming.
Reflection. One of the lakes we stopped at early morning. There was a beavers lodge on the lake. We didn’t get to see the beavers but the reflection of the mountain on the lake was spectacular #jaspernationalpark #explorecananda #explorecanada #beautifulimages
I give you... the world's most scenic outhouse.
which is the real view tho 👀 #wedgemount obviously. I just enjoy showing the mountains my own peaks.
[MONTREAL] Balade à #montreal ☀️
please validate this view was worth the 100 mosquito bites, sketchy climbs, sliding/falling down dirt paths, and hours of wandering lost. #lovebc

Home sweet home for 2 weeks. Loving this charming old farm house. Been beautifully restored and right on the south coast of #PEI . View from the top of the beach stairs.#peitourism #peivacation #explorecananda #canada 🇨🇦 #eastcoastcanada #maritimes #canadatourism
Stunning views are the reward for a very hot walk before a long floating boardwalk. So much fun today and it’s only day 2! #pei #peitourism #princeedwardisland #mypei #travelathome #explorecananda #truenorth
Goddamn, Vancouver 😍
I told them that saying "watermelon" would help them relax and look more natural. If your life goal isn't to find someone who looks at you like THAT while you're saying "watermelon watermelon watermelon..." I think you need to reassess your priorities.
The adventure life was calling so we planned a weekend adventure. In honour of adventure plans, here is a picture of my Yukon Hat mid adventure somewhere along the Dempster Highway. I am so stoked for the weekend that I actually thought (hoped) it was Friday when I woke up. ➰ I was disappointed when I did realize it was only Tuesday but it’s Sip n Stitch night so that’s a bonus. I’m finally back to working on my Flax Light for our #kal . It was briefly in the time out corner because I made a silly error that caused me to take it back to the neck ribbing #knitterproblems . But adventure time also means relaxing time in the hammock knitting so I am confident I can get back to where I was in no time. Photo by @adventuresofzm
