Personal / Travel

I like to travel light, and typically only bring along carry-on luggage (in fact, we each only travel with one piece of carry-on luggage and a small backpack). Because of this, I’m especially careful about any new purchases. If I buy something new, it usually means I have to get rid of something else. But these are five unconventional items that I’ve found useful while...

Bonding in Breckenridge Colorado / Family / Spirituality / Travel / United States

We thought we’d be extra adventurous this year, and trade our typical tropical climate for a brave escapade into an extremely harsh and frozen one. Our girls have been craving snow almost ever since we left it six years ago. To appease them, we decided to venture a ski vacation with Brandon’s Mom and sister Ashley’s family, over Christmas and the New Year. Little did we...

A Victorian December Education / Entrepreneurship / Family / Friends / Photography / Victoria

Have you noticed we keep coming back to Victoria? This time we settled in for the month of December, curious to see if its winter season was really as mild as cold-phobic people like ourselves tend to prefer. This is Canada we’re talking about, after all. Wouldn’t you know, we discovered it really does live up to its reputation! It’s in a sub-Mediterranean zone, not...
