LIFE LATELY…

Haven’t been riding as much as I’d like, but Kona and I still took off for an evening last week – So fast!

Here’s a picture I stole from Portia Clark (I think) of us judges for the Skirts A Fire media launch. We were judging several skirts designed by artists, made out of recycled materials. They were really beautiful this year, it was hard to decide! You can see them on display during the festival and should also consider catching a show on March 5-8th.

What you don’t see in the photo above is Dexter and Alice hanging off the rails of the staircase nearby. I think people are becoming quite accustomed to me showing up with my “associates” all the time now.
Same day, I did a quick shoot with New Classics Studio. They’re a local start up that curates sustainable pieces for the fashion forward consumer. I was excited to be involved! You can see more shots if you click the link. I fell in love with the skirt I was wearing…

So I bought one.

Also, really excited that they suggested I wear my HUNT AMOR body chain underneath the top – I think the effect is so cool!

Even managed to catch up with a dear friend this week. We got coffees and sandwiches from Burrowand ate them on a bench.

Visited Yellowhead Tribal College as literacy ambassador for the Edmonton Literacy Coalition.

Then, devoured sandwiches from District Co. at my Works Gala meeting.

In between teaching and kids and more teaching and more kids, I am also found wrapped up in my scarf at an Apricity meeting. We’re coming down the wire for our March 22nd event at the Jasper Place library! Amor thought my new cell phone case was so hilarious, she took a picture of me.

Same meeting, showing off some goods for our “literacy garden”.

I actually went to my first performance for Citie Ballet, and I loved it! So contemporary.

For family day, I took my little sister to brunch; taught a student; and then we took the kids to the Indiana Jones exhibit at the Telus World of Science.

The kids had a great time looking at the exhibits and doing the treasure hunt! They were also really stoked about taking home two snakes.

In addition to all this, I’ve also been filming these parenting panels for Breakfast Television with my two pals, Krista and Jason – Take a peek!

Dex and Alice were playing in the green room while we are filming, supervised by a kind girl assigned to my offspring. Thanks! I love that I can take my kids basically anywhere, and they just fold themselves into whatever is happening. Being a mom isn’t the easiest thing at the best of times, and it’s certainly challenging when I’ve got several random things on the go. But, there are so many great people who are here to help me. Including people I meet at the studio, or in a grocery store, or at a media launch.

Edmonton has some really friendly people.
