Well, it’s official we have come to the last and final post in our wedding week series. While I’m sad to see this series come to a close, I’m happy I was able to share our wedding with our West 5th readers and really show off what was our perfect day. If you haven’t had a chance to catch up, make sure to visit here, before you head into our final post in this series.
Welcome to the sixth post in the wedding week series here on West 5th! We’ve been covering everything from our ceremony to the reception and last week we talked details. This week is all about our favorite moments from the big day and I can’t wait to share those with you. Visit here to get caught up on our past posts.
I don’t know what it is about September, but I find I’m always encouraged to change up certain aspects of my life and start fresh with a new season. I think this is a good habit to get into, because it gives me 4 times throughout the year to reflect on my lifestyle and make changes where needed. Coming off of Summer, these little changes seem like a must because it can be so easy to get caught up in the fun and forget everything else.
As you may have noticed on West 5th, Mr. W & I have two cats that have been with us for almost our whole relationship. We adopted Mooky, our 5-year-old black cat when we first moved in together and about a year or so later we adopted our sassy tortoiseshell Marley. Together they make a great pair and have no issues getting into lots of trouble and keeping us entertained.
West 5th was on a bit of an R&R hiatus last week, but I’m back and today I’m talking about travel! Part of the R&R from last week was skipping off to a quick weekend away in Seattle. For us Vancouverites, Seattle is a perfect getaway as it takes us to a new country and offers up some fun and exciting adventures.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll know all about how hard it can be to get rid of items with sentimental meaning. I know after Mr. W and I got married, I had quite a bit of decor to go through and figure out where it was to end up. Most of that decor, was sold which at the end of the wedding and planning process and that was a good move (because who really needs a several just married signs right?). But I did manage to hold on to a few items that I grew attached to over the planning process.
Well, Mr. W and I finally took on a project I have been dying to get to, our guest room gallery wall! When we decided this space would be half a craft room and half a guest room, my creative juices started flowing and we decided to give this room a focal point. This room has the perfect blank wall that acted as the canvas for our wall and gave us enough room to get creative with what we decided to hang, while it wasn’t a quick project (3 days later) the results were well worth it!
