It’s so much fun getting to finally play with Hudson. The small little baby times were great...but I’m honestly pretty excited that he’s now at an age where he wants to play. He’s starting to play rough a bit, he likes to wrestle, he loves playing with his wooden car, he’s pretty much everything you’d expect from a little boy. I’m excited to watch him as his personality and interests become more and more clear. I’m also psyched for all of the father and son play times to come!

I’m going into 2019 with an open mind. So often we are way to quick to judge others without knowing their story, their struggles. Without jumping to conclusions I’m going to try to understand more. Because one person who may give you bad vibes might actually just be having a pretty crappy day. The one who gives you a cold shoulder just might be having an extreme time with anxiety and not know how to start a conversation. The one who blows off a plan might not have the courage to get up and out the door to see you that day. So for me, I’m going to try to listen and ask more instead of assuming the worst. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #adventureisoutthere #canadiangeographic #sharecangeo #tentree #travelalberta #parkscanada #pocket_canada #natgeonature #natgeo #pocket_allnature #yourshotphotographer #jaunton #campeveryday #ourplanetdaily #stunning_captures #ourcamplife #remarkableplaces #milliondollarvisuals #theoutbound #dailyhivecalgary #roamearth #explorealberta #EarthFocus #lifeonourplanet #bcparks #canadavacations #mountainstones #cabelascanada
hope 23 / 2019 are easier than hopping into this window sill was 🥳 . . 📷: @ginnytsao
Happy New Year friends! I hope the first dozen hours of your new year have been great! Ours basically consisted so far of getting woken up at 6am from a crying child who hates to sleep. Mix that with going to bed at 1am and that set the stage for our New Year’s Day...seeing how much coffee we can consume in 24hrs! If you find yourself in a similar place, or maybe you just want to try some new quality coffee this year, be sure to check out @tradecoffeeco...use promo “Ellie.bie” for 50% off your first bag of coffee.

I believe soulmates don’t have to just be your significant other, they can be a sibling, a stranger you meet or a best friend. I believe this girl right here is one of my soulmates. We have both been through similar situations growing up, act the same way, like and dislike the same things, and I am so grateful to have gotten so close to you. This summer wouldn’t have been nearly half as fun if you weren’t there. Through lots of laughs, bonfires, hiking galore, almost dying because were such idiots together. I’ll especially miss our dance parties and jam out sessions. Can’t wait for the summer coming up. So we can do this all over again. . . . . . . . . . #adventureisoutthere #canadiangeographic #sharecangeo #tentree #travelalberta #parkscanada #pocket_canada #natgeonature #natgeo #pocket_allnature #yourshotphotographer #jaunton #campeveryday #ourplanetdaily #stunning_captures #ourcamplife #remarkableplaces #milliondollarvisuals #theoutbound #dailyhivecalgary #roamearth #explorealberta #EarthFocus #lifeonourplanet #bcparks #canadavacations #mountainstones #cabelascanada
Hudson is getting so big! Even though he may not be big enough to fully understand Christmas, it sure has been fun seeing him react to all the lights, colors, and sounds this past month. Plus with his newly discovered obsession with crinkling paper I’m pretty excited to see his excitement on Christmas Day...now we just have to finish wrapping the gifts...and making some gifts...and buying some gifts...we’ll be fine!
Here’s to more everyday adventures with my people. That’s what life’s all about, right. @jadeandsage 👣🥾🎒
First Xcountry ski of this winter ❤️✌🏻
At the sacrifices of our arms and 2 days, I finally have a set of 24 bolt double beadlock wheels! They aren’t even on my ole girl yet and they are worth it!

So often we tend to get caught in our own heads feeling sorry for ourselves that we miss the bigger picture. That’s why for me, turning to nature reminds me that there’s an intricately complex and beautiful world right before my eyes, it makes my problems seem insignificant. And for me, that helps me cope. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #adventureisoutthere #canadiangeographic #sharecangeo #tentree #travelalberta #parkscanada #pocket_canada #natgeonature #natgeo #pocket_allnature #yourshotphotographer #jaunton #campeveryday #ourplanetdaily #stunning_captures #ourcamplife #remarkableplaces #milliondollarvisuals #theoutbound #dailyhivecalgary #roamearth #explorealberta #EarthFocus #lifeonourplanet #bcparks #canadavacations #mountainstones #cabelascanada
My favourite part about winter is how quiet the whole world becomes. I love the moments when you’re surrounded by nature, the sky is snowing and you take a moment to pause your journey and just stop and listen. And it is so still and quiet. Everything is fast asleep. And you just stand there taking it all in, the snow falling lightly around you, the steam from your breath, the fresh crisp cold air burning your lungs. There’s are the moments where I love the loneliness. ❄️🖤 . . . . . . . . . #adventureisoutthere #canadiangeographic #sharecangeo #tentree #travelalberta #parkscanada #pocket_canada #natgeonature #natgeo #pocket_allnature #yourshotphotographer #jaunton #campeveryday #ourplanetdaily #stunning_captures #ourcamplife #remarkableplaces #milliondollarvisuals #theoutbound #dailyhivecalgary #roamearth #explorealberta #EarthFocus #lifeonourplanet #bcparks #canadavacations #mountainstones #cabelascanada
“Brown paper packages tied up with strings These are a few of my favorite things”...oh and also @gathre mats and @hazelvillage dolls...those have also been some of Ellie and my favorite things this Holiday season! Definitely would recommend either one.
I love being able to create. I think that’s one of the things that I love about coffee. It gives me the opportunity to create every morning...and afternoon...and most evenings...(I probably drink too much coffee) anyway! There is something so enjoyable to me about waking up and creating coffee. Maybe you’re not a coffee person. That’s totally fine! Find that thing you’re doing every day. Whether that be cooking an exquisite dinner or making a beautiful spreadsheet. Try to not get caught up in the repetitive routines of daily life. Don’t just check stuff off your to-do list. Try to create beauty in it. [also I’m pretty psyched to finally get my coffee shelves finished. @brewlab.coffee definitely inspired this project]
Fog is beautiful but also scary in the mountains, you don’t know if a bear’s gonna come chasing out of the fog at any second and gobble you up for dindin. 🐻 Or even scarier, a human runnng out at me... 😱 . . . . . . . . . . . . #adventureisoutthere #canadiangeographic #sharecangeo #tentree #travelalberta #parkscanada #pocket_canada #natgeonature #natgeo #pocket_allnature #yourshotphotographer #jaunton #campeveryday #ourplanetdaily #stunning_captures #ourcamplife #remarkableplaces #milliondollarvisuals #theoutbound #dailyhivecalgary #roamearth #explorealberta #EarthFocus #lifeonourplanet #bcparks #canadavacations #mountainstones #cabelascanada
Autumn is the time of year when Mother Nature says, “Look how easy, how healthy, and how beautiful letting go can be.” ~ Toni Sorenson #604explore #explorebc #victoriabuzz #jaunton #victoriaonpoint #westcoastisthebestcoast #hellobc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #yyj #sharevi #keepitwild #makemoments #lovelifeoutside #seaside #ocean #sunnyday #autumn #simplepleasures #liveauthentic #onthehorizon
A lot of people tend to think that once you’re married and have kids your life is over. If I had a dollar for every time someone said to me two years ago “you’re getting married?! You’re so young!” I would...well, I’d have more dollars. Then I blew all those peoples minds even more when I told them Ellie and I were having a baby. You can imagine what some of those reactions were like. My life definitely looked different and I started to feel like a captive to this little boy that I loved so much. The late nights out on the town with my wife turned into late nights of headaches and us saying “he has to stop crying soon, right?” For the first two or three months of Hudson’s life on earth I definitely let those people I mentioned earlier get in my head. I started thinking “what if we are too young?” Or “what if our life really is gonna be boring now?” But those thoughts were all lies. Just about half a year into this whole dad thing and I’m finally able to start seeing those thoughts for the lies they are. Being given a baby has been one of God’s greatest gifts to Ellie and me. Our lives aren’t over, they’re really just beginning. Our days aren’t boring, they just look different. Quiet evenings of reading and coffee have now turned into evenings of coffee, reading, and some babbling and giggles...and I couldn’t be happier about that.
