Fall Fun At The Calgary Corn Maze | Pink Antler Photography

The shadows are long, the air is crisp, the leaves give way to the gentle pull of the Earth, and the evening sunlit clouds seem to reflect a mystical golden hue.  It's Fall again...a beautiful and magical season.
Of all the years we have lived in Calgary, this is the first year we went to the Corn Maze.  It was really fun!  I wish we would have brought the kids here when they were a bit younger but none-the-less, they still had a blast.  Especially at the slide.  At this time of year the cornfield is chopped and way tot easy to navigate through the maze but it made for some pretty cool pictures.  Glad to have had some family time with my sister and her family! We have 7 boys between the two of us and when we get together it's a lot of loud and a lot of fun:)


20 Ways To Celebrate The Spring Equinox

Not sure about you, but outside my window is a freaking blizzard!  So I was trying to come up with ways to celebrate the long anticipated arrival of spring.  For me this is truly reason to celebrate after such a long and cold winter.

1. Do 108 Sun Salutations or just watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee.
2. Meditate.
3. Buy fresh flowers for the home.
4. Make a terrarium.
5. De-clutter your home.
6. Fill up or buy a bird feeder.
7. Decorate or put out eggs to symbolize the circle of life and new beginnings.
8. Make paper flowers out of old books, newspaper, or tissue paper.
9. Start a gratitude journal.
10. Set some personal goals, write them down, and watch them come to life.
11. Throw on a spring colored table cloth on your kitchen table. Don't forget to add the fresh flowers!
12. Replace old couch cushions with bright and happy spring colored ones.
13 Throw on some happy music, turn up the volume, and dance.
14. Smudge your home to rid of negative energies and to attract positive ones.
15. Buy a new plant to help purify the air in your home or plant some seeds and watch them grow.

17. Call a friend or family member that you've been thinking about.
18. Do something nice for someone.
