Calling this the road less traveled-black and white edition. The last of the photos from my amazing Saskatchewan road trip weekend to see a certain special someone 🖤🇨🇦

I have been a little MIA on social media the last few weeks.⁣
⁣
The air has changed, the leaves have blown off the trees and gathered in the same places as last year. The sun feels different but familiar in its position in the open sky. Everything has turned inward including myself.⁣
⁣
You have missed two weddings, eight birthdays, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Mother’s Day, two wedding showers, two stagettes, a job promotion and the completion of a journeyman certificate. I have never missed you more. There are so many things I want to talk to you about but I can’t. So, I cry sometimes and journal when I can. Three pictures of you sit on my nightstand along with a couple of rocks from your front yard. I still hug the stuffed duck you gave me as a gift years ago when I go to sleep at night. And it fucking sucks. We all keep moving forward with time and the only way I can bring you with me is in my heart. I have no choice but to move forward.⁣
⁣
The last few weeks have been emotional and hard to describe. October 7th was one year since my beautiful mama passed away, and, on October 13th my baby brother got married to the most amazing woman. So much happiness, love, laughter and at the same time, an unexplainable layer of sadness that sits just below the surface. This has been the hardest, darkest year of my life but I am choosing to be grateful for everything this past year has brought me.⁣
⁣
It might seem weird to share such intimate details on social media but it shouldn’t be. I want others to know that grief is tough. There is no right or wrong way to move through your healing. There is no time limit or finish line for grief. As you move through grief it changes. One day to the next can be completely different and that’s okay. Never be ashamed or embarrassed. This is your story.

Permaculture and Poultry on the Prairies
I’m pretty excited to be a food columnist for the @thestarphoenix again!
Fresh out of university and knowing next to nothing (haha), I got my start in journalism covering all kinds of stories at the SP.
My editors always gave me opportunities for growth, encouraging me to take leadership roles.
They allowed me leaves of absence to explore the world and were even supportive when I quit to go train horses in Spain!
It’s so good to be home and part of a news establishment of which I’m very proud.
On that note - Flat Out Food launches today and will be run every second Thursday 👊 
The story link is in my profile.

Yep, it’s probably a prime pic for @insta_repeat BUT I still love it!
More so, I treasure moments like this when @richardmarjan took the shot. 
I’d found a gorgeous little slice of Saskatchewan to take in and didn’t move from my spot on the bridge until I drank it all in... letting that prairie beauty fill my soul.

Roots 🌾

I haven’t lived close to my family for almost 13 years. I moved away from home early to pursue acting. While I’m glad I did, I’m also grateful to reconnect with family and spend quality time. To return to the place I grew up reminds me of my history and how far I’ve come. And that I wouldn’t be where I am without the support of my family and loved ones 💗

Anyone else have a love/hate relationship with Monday’s? I love the idea of a fresh start and the opportunity to be better than last week but I also just want to crawl back into bed and sleep all day. 🤷🏼‍♀️

I’m absolutely in love with this image! Devon and Jackie were so much fun! I love when a couple can laugh through an entire session the way they did! And we finished just in time for the rain to come down!
I have a two day break from sessions, and, clients...as much as I’d love to tell you how I plan to do nothing but edit, I can’t.

True facts: 1. I’m already in bed. 2. The hardest part of importing images and doing a quick cull is deciding which image to post as a sneak peek! 3. I have three more sessions tomorrow. 4. I know this photo isn’t in focus or sharp. I’m 💯% ok with that and you should be too! #sunflare #lensflare #theprairies #freckledfamilysessions #familyphotos #nikon #tamron #2470 #twigandolivepresets #familypictures #exploring #theprairies #manitobaphotographer #manitobafamilyphotographer #portagelaprairiephotographer #kokoplatztrails #beautifulfamily

We are so honoured to be selling Dion Manastyrski book.  This book has photos from all over the Prairies, and small quotes from people who have amazing stories.  This is the perfect gift!! I know my Dad is going to Love it! #flowercart #localartist #theprairies #perfectgiftforgrandparents #photography #goodoldstories #youwillwanttoreadthis #ipromise
Crossed the Prairies! Not as dull as advertised, but still a long haul. Although I've probably seen my fair share of hay bales, the variety in landscapes was amazing. The Badlands were by far the highlight and Winnipeg turned out to be my favourite city. Rockies are up next!

Tonight, before I started my evening of minis marathon, I basically demanded that my hubby deliver me a diet root beer and a bunless mozza burger. It was 💣. But not as 💣 as these sessions tonight! This spot. 😍 it seriously has my heart.

The two best friends that anyone could have. ☺️
Last night we came together as a community to support and encourage our hometown hockey team and each other. A step in the healing process that will bring us closer together in grief and healing. There was a palpable energy in the air. Filled with everything from hopelessness to excitement, sadness, and, at the same time happiness and gratitude to be part of something bigger than us. The things we have accomplished together make us so very proud to be part of the hockey community and Humboldt. Thank you to the volunteers and organizers that made last night's home opener a special evening that we will always hold close to our hearts. 
There are players, families, friends and community members carrying a weight and emotional burden that most of us will never understand. We want to remind ourselves and others to be kind to one another. Everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about. Be patient and give each other grace. There is no time limit or finish line for grief. We all experience it differently in ways that are unique to us. 
We are here. We are with you. We wish you strength, love, light and healing on the ice and off. Today and in the season ahead. 📷: @snelsey
