hello wilderness vacation.

every summer when i was younger, my family and i would vacation at jan lake lodge. i always looked forward to making that long trip into northern saskatchewan, because even though it would always rain and there was always some fight between my siblings and i, being there felt like we had just found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. it was an isolated little piece of heaven.

as we grew older, we eventually stopped to j.l.l. for years, i did not even give the spot a second thought when it would come to mind. then suddenly, over 10 years later and now married, i found myself wondering what it would be like to go back there for a few days. this time, i would have my own family to take with me, and i would have new memories of the lake with them. so husband and dogs in tow, i once again made the long trip northward.

when we did reach our destination, i realized that while people grow and change, some places will always stay the same. what a bittersweet feeling it was to be back there.

this is our video of that week at jan lake lodge. i hope that you enjoy it.

  • A few weeks ago we were running around in short sleeve dresses. Now we're in jackets and hats. 🍂 A horribly blurry picture that pretty much sums up our week together. It's been 5 days and our home is nearly flu-free. Dada is off working in a different province, (smiles aside) Remy is not happy with me today, our house is a renovation disaster, and I have a photography session scheduled tomorrow that I'm not yet sure if I need to hire a babysitter for. I'm not going to lie, I'm really looking forward to this week being over with. It was not easy, however that's life. There is so much that I do have to be thankful for! We are in good health 99% of the time. My husband finally has a great job. I am lucky to be able to work when I want at what I want. We have a house. Most importantly, I have my little goose to snuggle with. I sincerely hope that if anyone else is having a bad day/week/month/year, that you can also find the silver lining. Our own life is not for everyone, nor is it Instagram perfect. If we're lucky, it is the one that we desire, even in the difficult times. Enjoy your weekend!
