Oh, where to start with all the love. The love list is a necessary part of the blog, or else I go all evangelical to people about all the goodness around.
1. Sweet Kari creates Sweet Clips. Kari, whose wedding I photographed, is a creator, a do-er, she pretty much crafted-up a tsunami when it came to her wedding. When they moved to the little town of Sayward and she became a mom, she still needed to create and of course it was something adorable – lovely little hair clips. She loves to bake as well, but of course you can’t sell baking in Etsy. Check out her very reasonably priced girls hair clips, they would be a super cute accessory for any photo session.
2. I need to be a woman on the town for the next week, because there is so much going on.
The crew at Vanier is putting on the musical Crazy for You – it will be top-notch. I have seen many of these teens perform before and they are going to give er’. The crew behind the scenes includes Lindsey Sterk from Panutso Dance, so I know it will be fantastic. Seriously, if you haven’t checked out the local high-school performances you are going to be really impressed.
It is being performed at the Isfeld Theatre April 13 to 17
with 7 p.m. evening shows and a 2 p.m. matinée show on Saturday the
17th. Tickets are available at Vanier, Videos ‘n More in Comox,
Laughing Oyster Book Shop in Courtenay and Alley Cuts in Cumberland.
3. Sarah, over at Hillbilly Jillies reminded me about Sweet Bites, which I first discovered at the Cumberland Bakery. While the incredible apple fritters screamed my name, and stared me down, I was able to find resistance with a Sweet Bites, according to their web-site Sweet Bites are organic, raw, vegan, wheat free, soy free and
free of processed sugar. I am not supposed to have any processed sugar and have a massive sweet tooth, These aren’t quite the same as an Avenue Sticky Date Pudding (arguably one of the best desserts in the Valley,) but they are really good and they don’t make me have an allergic reaction, and I can keep one in my purse (take that date pudding!)
Here is a favorite from a little session I shot awhile back, more of it to come on the blog this week.
