It's been a busy year so far, with the wedding season taking up most of my time. I've had many a sleepless nights outfitting weddings and engagements here in Vancouver, Williams Lake, Saltspring Island, Toronto, California, and even a wedding in the Philippines.
And the fall has only lightened up a bit.

Our silver line BrokenEnglish has been doing fairly well with only a handful of stores carrying the collection. It's been well received so we will be building upon the pieces and hoping to get them in more stores across Canada and perhaps internationally in the coming year.

It's midnight, but the late evening has become a close friend.
I did have a chance to slip away on a few short trips this year, but a real vacation is long overdue!
