About Me

Hi there! I'm Alycia.

I grew up in "small town" Swift Current, SK. In 2004, I moved to Lethbridge, AB to go to University. I started out in Kinesiology and 3 years later, switched to Nursing (which I am so thankful I did).  

In late 2005, I met Mitchell 

We got engaged in 2009 and married at the beautiful Dreams Puerto Aventuras 
in Riviera Maya, Mexico in 2011
I wouldn't change this day for anything

and here we are, 8 1/2 years later, married, have a beautiful daughter, Palmer and a fur baby, Leaf. Obviously a lot of other things happened between 2005 and now:

Summer of 2007, we lived in Jacksonville Florida
Fall of 2007, I started Nursing School
In March 2008, we bought our first house
In April 2009, we got our first baby, Leaf

December 26, 2009, we got engaged.
December 2010, I finished nursing school and got a job!
January 5, 2011, we were married
December 2012, we moved into our new house
January 21, 2013, beautiful baby Palmer was born

These are obviously just some of the major life events.

There are so many amazing memories in between of vacations, family time, time with friends and just every day normal things that make up life. 

I started this blog back in June 2013 as a way of keeping touch with family and friends, both near and far, and as a way to write down my thoughts, feelings, and memories of our days as a family of 4 (of course I'm 
including our first baby, Leaf).

Life has been going in full speed since Palmer was born, and I don't want to forget anything! So, I've picked up a (new) hobby; Photography! I try to capture our special moments, milestones, and everyday memories on camera. 

And there you have it, a little bit more about me.
