RaNdOm Round UP! May 28 2015, 0 Comments

Well hi there! 

How about some random things in no particular order?

-The Thursday Farmers Market in Canmore is back for the season starting June 11th! AM Adventures will have a tent there. Come visit!

 - We have a new design in the shop! Breathing Space is a capri, and we are working on a double layered set of leggings for winter runners. Hopefully this will be available beginning in October 2015.The mercifully brief newsletter with a free shipping code is HERE  The mock-up image is below.

- Canada Day is *amazing* here in Canmore! Not only is there a parade, a race , fireworks (usually, if it's safe), endless adventures, and patio space, but there will also be an outdoor Mountain Made market. OH MY!!  

- Since my main gig is photographer, I sometimes get to work on interesting projects. Last week, work took me to many places, including Edmonton. One of my jobs was to create recognizable images of the communities we were in. This one is Edmonton at sunset.

The Rocky Mountain Soap Company Women's Run was this past weekend (May 23 & 24) and it was, as always, an incredibly well done event. Over 2000 women and girls walked and ran the 5km, 10km, and 21.1km courses. There were several vendors and displays, music, dancing, fun, and friendliness. Many ladies came for some leggings and capris, some who already have a couple of pairs. It is SO FUN to see these lovely, strong, adventurous women enjoying them. THANK YOU to every single person I met this weekend for the nice things you say, for the way you share with your friends, and the way you are super freaking cool. <3

 

 


Zoe the Split Lake, MB Wonder Dog April 03 2015, 0 Comments

This is Zoe! She was a surprise. Last September, a good friend said he had the cutest puppy for me, even though I wasn't actually planning for a puppy. In this way, Zoe is like my three, unbelievably super children. Unplanned, but a beautiful, much loved addition to life. When she arrived, she had ridden in a car for the first time, and gotten sick on the way to Thompson, MB. She flew to Winnipeg, then to Calgary. My friend then drove her to Canmore to meet me. At a likely 3 months old, Zoe had never seen snow was delighted with it.  She was skinny, but playful and friendly.  This is Zoe on her first road trip, on a stop in Revelstoke. During our trip to Kelowna, puppy earned the nickname "Pees in Crosswalk". To all the nice people who were patiently stopped for us to cross, thank you! Hopefully you were still able to drive in spite of the 'laugh til you cry' moment. One of the proprietors of The Yellow House came out to visit us after our meal, and invited Zoe to join us on the patio. He made her a steak, which she inhaled.

Zoe is certainly not that little 19lb pup anymore! She's 60lbs now, and about 9-10 months old. Zoe is a great trail dog, loves to scramble, run, and play at the dog park. She is the official doggy of AM Adventures :-)
