Adventures in Iceland| Eee and Bee Europe Trip 2014

I figured since we are going back and it’s been so quiet on the blog, I should probably post this! It’s just  a small peek back at part of our amazing summer Europe trip from 2014. It seems so far away, but already we are on our way back to this amazing leg of our journey, Iceland. (Be still my heart, I love this place!)

We are of course NO landscape photographers, but Iceland sure makes it easy to get a good shot. However we were always bugging each other (well, me, I was always bugging the Bee) to stand in the shot we had some people to photograph.

So why did we go in the first place?
“Iceland? Why are you going to Iceland?” was pretty much everyone’s response when we told of the first stop on our European adventure. Truth be told it was also the most random choice. When deciding to fly IcelandAir we were drawn in by the allure of a stopover in Iceland. So it was decided that we would add this to our list and the more we read, the more our excitement grew to be in this wonderful place.

I won’t bore you with endless details, because nothing can really describe the beauty of travelling this country it seems. With a non-stop flight from Edmonton how could you not want to go there. The summer time in Iceland brings the most green landscape you will ever see, more sheep then you knew existed and if you are outdoor lovers like us, there are so many adventures to be had and places to be explored. We just scratched the surface with hidden hot pools, epic wind torn days, and quaint walks through a gorgeous town to find street art. Take a peek and don’t be afraid to plan yourself a trip. I hope to post more adventures from our Europe trip real soon, but for now, here’s Iceland.

100 Happy Days Project | Sherwood Park Photographers

Floating around the interwebs was the tag #100happydays it was all over people’s instagram photos and I was so intrigued by it as I always love to try a good photo challenge.

Upon looking it up I found out it was an actual photo challenge for which you could sign up for! (http://100happydays.com/) and I became incredibly terrified by the accountability and statistics of this challenge. But, we all need to find some happy in our lives right? So on February 13th, I decided I was going to pursue this and NOT fail. I’m now just about 60 days in and haven’t missed a day. I’ve also realized that some days there is an incredible amount of happy in my life (wanting to post two or three, sometimes even four pictures, but I had already posted for that day) and some days it seems like there is none, but if you search really hard you can always find some happy.

I’m learning a lot about our life and what makes me happy, and I’m so happy to share some of that with you. Here’s the past two months of my 100 happy days challenge, follow me on instagram for the rest. Maybe even sign up yourself? Let me know in the comments if you do, I want to follow yours too!

30 Days of Gratitude | Sherwood Park + Edmonton Videography

I was always too scared to share this video, never posted about it, never made a big deal of it. This was my first official jump into video. Here’s what I wrote about, over one year ago. And how it turned out.

 

“Over the month of February I was inspired to take part in a very interesting and unique project. After an online workshop with the amazing Sue Bryce and Hailey Bartholomew about using videos for your business, they challenged photographers and videographers all over the world to take part in this, I couldn’t resist. This project entailed that you bring your camera everywhere, film things EACH DAY that make you smile, and then edit this into a less then 2 minute video. I was so excited to do this as I LOVE video! (and I want to get really, really, really, good at it!)

I have always been a complainer and I think we all have those days and days in a row where life seems to be pretty uneventful, especially in the dreary winter here. This month while I played with filming each day I found a lot of things that make me smile, that I was excited about, and most of all that I was grateful for! I really became appreciative of the life I have and the people who are in it.

Projects like this don’t have to be through video. Daily photo challenges, even on your iPhone, can really make you find things in life that are truly worthwhile and fun again! So, I challenge you! Try a project like this out, its amazing for both skill improvement and general happiness!
