This is really hard. You all know Katie, or KD as we call her. We have been SO incredibly fortunate to work with KD over the past few years. She is kind, compassionate, and funny. She is supportive, articulate, organized, and forever prepared! Most importantly she is a safe space for all of our team members to go to when they need a hand, or a shoulder. Things are about to change, a lot. Katie and her partner are about to embark on a new journey! Parenthood! So we’re getting ready to see our goodbyes, even though we will see her when she visits us. If we can give you any advice: don’t worry about the laundry it will be there tomorrow. Revel in the little things! Your kids will only be this little once, so enjoy them! Oh, and that wasn’t a typo, we really did mean them. IT’S TWINS 💗💙! Congratulations Katie and Chris, we love you! • • • • • • • #cococafecedar #buysocial #shoplocal #ycd #nanaimo #tourismnanaimo #catering #sharevi #vanisle #cheflife #thefeedfeed #seetheability #instafood #coffeeshop #food #foodie #cafe #chef #foodblog #coffee #lunch #breakfast #foodenthusiast #foodblogger #thefeedfeed #recipeshare #realfood #foodblogfeed #f52gram #gastropost #foodcoma

Why Abeego beeswax wraps? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🥑 Unlike plastic wrap, these actually keep your food fresher longer by acting like a natural rind and allowing it to breathe - cutting down on food waste and saving you a lot of money! 🧀 Completely zero waste. Because the wraps are simply made with natural cotton and beeswax, once they are at the end of their useful life you can easily toss them in the compost - or cut into strips to use as twist ties. 🥖 As a company, Abeego is focused on not only creating an amazing zero waste product, but also adopting zero waste practices during production - meaning all excess materials are creatively used. ⠀ 🍅 They are the original beeswax wrap, at the best price point we could find, and they are handmade in Victoria, BC!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since discovering these 6 months ago, we haven’t used any plastic wrap at all and we don’t miss it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In stock now 🧡 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nofoodwaste #healthierhomes ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷: @abeego ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

He looks so sweet but Koda actually likes to try to trip me as I’m hiking down super steep things. Are you trying to kill me dude? ||Side note related to this photo. Took a meditation on this spot and it was nice because koda came and pressed himself against me and joined me the whole time. First time I’ve tried it with him while we were out in the woods and he can have free range. Thanks buddy for sticking around 🙏🏽

Last night I stayed #home... Doing #homework , other random stuff. I wandered out on to the deck taking a break. I felt #footsteps which was weird because I didn't hear anything...I look down and there's something #Five times the size of a big raccoon with a really long thick #tail. Huh. #HelloKitty... By that I mean #COUGAR. Over the front lawn, down the side of the house, into the backyard. Felt every footstep but never heard a sound. 😯 Called the game warden. We're in a suburb with kids and pets... The neighbours #dog was losing its mind the whole time begging to be let IN 🤣🤣🤣. Maybe 60 minutes later an #unhappy #PoliceOfficer shows's now 1 am. Asks if the cat is still around (I didn't look...) he sighed and said something like 'well I'm going to do the UNWISE thing and go look for it in your backyard trees in the dark...' That was not on me. I called the game warden. Can't say I would have been thrilled trying to stalk an animal that big in the dark either. Wasn't too bad to watch from a distance though 😃🤣. #betteryouthanme #latepost #instawild #bigcats #story #fog #orange #notakitty #yyj #vanisle #hadtolaugh #islandlife #goodnight #OnePicADayForPeace

she’s a Queen with a little bit of savage . . r.h. sin . . . If you follow me for awhile you’ll see that one of my passions is nature, especially animals. I spend a lot of time outside and it was such a treat to be in #Tofino and get to photograph all the animals I normally wouldn’t see. Not too many whales or otters in Alberta. . . . #naturephotography #nature #sunrise #ocean #vanisle #wildlifephotography #wildlife #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #natgeowild #canadian #imagesofcanada #explorebc #explorecanada #baldeagle #pnwbc #hikebc #yvr #yyc #yyj #intothewild #heatercentral #master_shots #fotografia #foto #paradisecanada #wanderlust #explorer

Compartiendo resultados de especialistas en biomecánica humana de Functional Patterns #Repost @fp.nina ( @get_repost ) ・・・ #Repost @functionalpatterns ・・・ Great results here by @fp.ericw. Killing the game smalls • • • • • This is some progress with my scoliosis client as of late. I have to admit, there are so many variables to account for which makes this one of my most difficult cases I've ever taken on. Every bit of progress seems to bring out more questions to find the answers to. Props to those FP practitioners who have worked so hard to get the results they get. This is nothing but determination we at @functionalpatterns need to tackle these kinds of problems. Here is her story: "I was diagnosed with scoliosis in Grade 9 or 10. The doctor who diagnosed said not to do anything, no surgery or brace since I "only" had 28 degree curve in my lumbar spine. Just wait and see. If it was over 30 degrees he would have recommended surgery or other treatment. Instead I tried chiropractic, massage, osteopathy, yoga for scioliosis, physiotherapy. I saw some benefits but not really any change in the scoliosis which was what i wanted. Last year, had another x-ray which showed my curve had deteriorated to 32 degrees. Mostly everyone told me scoliosis was something I just had to live with the rest of my life. But I knew there was something out there that could change my spine so I kept looking." We still have so much work to do as I'm constantly trying to improve my own competence in using the concepts I've learned from Functional Patterns to change her structural scoliosis. I am definitely not satisfied with these results. Any insight or advice from my fellow FP practitioners is greatly appreciated. Thank you to @fp.benjamin for the assistance in tackling this. Slide 1,2, and 3 showcase her first relaxed posture compared to active. Slide 4,5, and 6 showcase all relaxed postures. Picture 1 is from June 28, 2nd is from July 12, and 3rd is from August 23. #functionalpatterns #biomechanicsculture #tensegrity #scoliosis #vancouverisland #vanisle #victoriabc #yyj

Lewis's Moonsnail. The shell is about 5 inches across, but the rest of the body of this carnivorous snail is well over a foot long as it creeps along the bottom of the sea. It preys on shellfish by drilling a countersunk hole through the shell and sucking out the tasty interior...often with a side of favas beans and a nice Chianti... #salishsea #vancouverisland #vanisletrue #freediving #westcoastlife #westcoastinspired #beauty #vancouverisland #beautifulbritishcolumbia #beautifulbc #vanisle #underwater #pacificocean #marinelife #underwaterphotography #sealife #seacreatures #ocean #diving #sea #diver #divers #explore #bctourism #bctourismmatters #oceanside #oceano #apnea
