Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, LOVE leaves a memory no one can steal. As you may have heard, Dad (Bill Snider) passed away peacefully early this morning. We will share ‘Celebration of Life’ details as soon as arrangements are made. Thank you everyone for your love and support.

Ten years ago we became parents of this red-headed terrific boy. Ace William is one of my most favourite people on earth, not only because he made me a Mom, but because he is so unique!  This creative, crazy, playful, energetic, curious, caring boy has been such a joy to raise.  I often call him my […]

One thing I love about living in our small town of Oxbow, Saskatchewan is that we’re a block from the outdoor swimming pool.  This is where the kids take two weeks of swimming lessons each year, just as I did when I was a kid.  We had great weather for the set, with just a […]

canada day fireworks

What a great way to start off July…with Canada Day fireworks at Moose Creek Regional Park.  We packed up the family and headed down to our local waterfront/beach at the Alameda Dam for the fireworks show this evening.  It was equally enjoyable & impressive and we’re lucky to get this good of a show in our home […]

2013 was my year to step back and take a look at things…what a blessing! After tremendous growth in my photography business during 2012…my head was spinning (in a good way)!  My photography business was flourishing and I knew it was time to focus in on defining my style, creating a website and developing the […]
