So, it turns out we’ve been open 5 years already! Wahey! We first opened our doors on 8th September 2013, and I feel like a bad parent for missing our 5th birthday on Saturday! #timeflies #igotfiveonit #propernutty #ohhowwevegrown
#TBT our very first photo shoot, when the DLC line had only 4 shirts and one simple mission: make t-shirts locals would love to wear.⠀
I had a great time with these awesome models (read: fab friends) that day as we traversed the Capitol, changed shirts behind a blanket and got creative with poses. ⠀
We've gotten a little more professional with our photography but not any less fun. That's a core value we're keeping :)⠀

I met you in the dark, you lit me up
You made me feel as though, I was enough
We danced the night away, we drank too much
....I knew I loved you then
In 2016 I booked us a one way trip to Colombia, with only the first 4 nights planned. We 💓💕 Cartagena, it felt like home. That same trip I convinced him into spending one night in a little shack at the top of la Sierra Nevada, just so I can see the biggest hammock in the world. After we got to the top I was dying to leave. Relationships give you courage you didnt know you have. He didnt say anything, we literally stuck out for each other. We spent two days in Santa Marta, Robert got the worst food poisining and I cried. #twodaystilourtenth #tentillourtenth #tenyearslater #mce #myeverything #mymainsqueeze #cartagenadeindias #mycopilot #ohhowwevegrown
Throwback Thursday 😂 This was the FIRST wood working project I EVER did, in grade 10 woodworking class. A gum ball machine and a wooden beer bottle 😂 We've come a long way, I'd like to think. Who would of thought a passion found in a grade 10 wood shop class would turn into a career

Owning a business has taught me many lessons, but most importantly how valuable our time and happiness is! You can not put a price tag on your time, and when you find people that are irreplaceable, make sure you give them one of your most valuable gifts - your time. #ohhowwevegrown #time #love #happiness
#flashback 😎 This popped up on our feed today. The very first IG promo piece shot about 18 months ago!
We had a little under 20 IG followers, and most were personal friends 😂.
It’s been an amazing 18 months and we wanted to thank you all for your continued support as we continue to grow the @johnskillerprotein brand! Plenty of amazing news coming up this year and nothing but growth ahead!

BRAND EVOLUTION 💜 From the first mock up I made, to my first take on packaging... I’m very happy with how this little brand is developing. Most of all, I’m thrilled I could incorporate the colourful rainbow of our cards into the Baby Pardons logo 🌈🙃
I first met you when I was 12.. First kissed you when I was 13..I've been putting up with your shit since then and I wouldn't want it any other way lol. I wish I had more pictures of us as kids but I was lame and always hated taking pictures..big regret now, but here's a few I do have haha!! 16 years and 2 kids later...I love you more than ever. #loveofmylife #ohhowwevegrown
If you catch me during the weekend, there is a 85% chance I’m wearing ripped jeans (because I can’t wear them to school😅🙈) they’re one of my favorite pieces, and I’ll take them almost everywhere! What’s your favorite piece of clothing you own
Sometimes we go through this life trying to guess what our future will hold. We think it’ll be nice and easy when we are teenagers and then maybe get harder as we become adults. But sometimes life kicks your butt and says there are some lessons you need to learn now. Sometimes you are going to have the best days of your life and then make a decision that effects the rest of your days. Sometimes you think this’ll be it but life surprises you once more.
We were apart for a year after I made a decision to leave. I learned so many lessons that affected my outlook on the rest of my life. I loved and laughed, I cried and screamed. I got confused at times but then other times I knew exactly what to do... without you. Later on I met so many new people and said goodbye to those I’ve known almost my whole life. I went through the hard life. Without you. And it started a new chapter.
Later after all of this had happened I looked at my life and felt something missing. A puzzle piece that was the most important to finish the whole design. I tried to fill the void but couldn’t. An exact year later... I made another decision. To try to fix what I had done. I had grown and so had you. We were sooo much more different yet still the same. We went through so much... without each other.
I bet when we look back on our life as we are sitting with our families, we will laugh about all of this. We look at pictures now of when we were younger and recollect all of the times we laughed and we cried. And I’m happy. I’m happy that I came back to you and I didn’t stay away. I’m excited to spend the rest of my life as your friend and sister and that is a promise. I learned what it felt to live without you and I don’t think I can do that ever again. I’m going to be there through every late night, early morning, and everything in between. We are so close to another chapter that now I can say I’m going to be there whenever you graduate college, get engaged, get married, start a family. Everything.
Because you are my person ❤️ .

Because we all have to start somewhere; almost three years ago-first themed cake; out of the tub frosting, ziplock bag piped emoji poops (also out of the tub) and running colors because I didn’t know cakes sweat. #everyjourneybeginswithasinglestep #ohhowwevegrown
