With a Little Help from Our Friends
Jeff + I are so lucky to have so many friends, families + guardian angels looking after us. Otherwise we’d be living in a ditch standing around a fire lit oil drum for warmth + shelter.
I jest. But not by much. We are always teetering very precariously close to the edge. After we spent another night in Canmore at our friends Karen + Kyle’s, we all decided to go out for breakfast + take a tour of their new house that is going under construction. Jeff was outside busy brushing the snow off of his car + I told their wee daughter Juna to wave at him + yell, “HI JEFF!!!!!”. Good job, Juna!
SO MUCH SNOW!!! I thought that it was normal since hey, I don’t know anything about Canada! Apparently the snowfall is unusual for this time of year + everyone has HAD IT with the snow. For me, it was a lovely, fluffy novelty because I don’t know anything about shoveling snow or pipes freezing or any of that yucky unpleasantness.
Kyle is a real estate genius + Karen is an interior design virtuoso!!!! Together they are a super team! Check out a couple of pictures of the old house from a post from 2011!!! Karen was also featured in Avenue magazine in an article titled, “A Modern Mountain Home in Canmore”. AND SHE’S SELF TAUGHT!!! You better recognize!!!!!!
We quickly decided we weren’t up for it + jammed back to Canmore. Karen + Kyle are generously letting us borrow a king size mattress for our condo! Woot to that! Now I won’t be getting elbowed in the face or kicked by Jeff’s monkey limbs! But let me tell y’all, getting that thing on the trailer + wrapped up was a situation.
After all the drama, that sucker was goin’ nowhere!!! Solid as a rock! We lifted + hauled that monster into the condo + no joke Jeff laid down + in 2 seconds he was passed out! Poor guy. It’s been nonstop for him lately! Thanks Karen, Kyle + Juna for looking out for us!!!!
