Living our dreams, also known as “Living your dreams”, seems to be the phrase of the century doesn’t it.

I used to think this was such a fluff statement and didn’t give it much thought.  I used to never believe in this stuff.  Or didn’t think that dreams ever do come true.

Well, something I have learned is life isn’t handed to you and when I learned you have to pursue it yourself that changed everything.

The only person that physically can make a mindset change and work towards goals is YOU.  In our home and family life we also acknowledge our faith as our number one, second comes us listening to the Holy Spirit.

What is our Dream?

I grew up in the Fraser Valley on acreage. I’m still deeply a country girl at heart.  The desire to be outside and being surrounded by nature runs deep.

It’s my husbands and I prayer and dream to own acreage.

It would be great to raise our kids with the similar childhood experiences as mine and my husbands love for the outdoors.

IMG_7936How it all began:

After I graduated High School, through a young adult ministry I got to help co-ordinate and start up, my “man of my dreams” showed up to one of the first meetings of getting the ministry started. It didn’t take long after sitting at Starbucks for a “first date” we got kicked out when the coffee shop closed, we both knew we needed to get to know each other better. Just under 2 years later we got married and this September we celebrate 10 years of marriage.

Today we have 2 boys and 1 girl.  We are in our second home and our home is full as a family of 5. Our faith is important to us and our family is very connected to our church community.

We do whatever we can to get outside and have family time.

My oldest loves to create projects like I do and is loving learning music like his mom.  Our youngest could be outside everyday (rain or shine). We are loving figuring out his passions and interests.
