It’s time for our geraniums to go back into the greenhouse for the winter. They’ve lasted us 2 summers already and we’re hoping to bring them back next year - it just depends on how much more they grow; they might outgrow our window boxes by then! Stop by in the spring to see if they’re back. Flowers or not, we’ll be here all fall & winter to make sure you have the smile you deserve!⠀

Doctor Sleep.

This follow up to The Shining does not quite reach the heights of its predecessor but it gives it a shot and works for the most part.

Ewan McGregor is a grown up Danny Torrance that is still traumatized by his childhood. He self medicates and disconnects from using his gifts.

A young girl is more powerful than anyone before and a group led by Rebecca Ferguson wants her so they can feed off her soul. Or something like that. The story for this movie is kinda hokey and how many times can Stephen King start a story with murdering a child? It was a bit routine for me.

What saves this movie are the performances. Ewan McGregor is great as Danny. I believed this grown man still fighting his past demons and wanting to help and get better. Rebecca Ferguson has never been better than as Rose the Hat. She can be truly terrifying. Cliff Curtis gets a nice role as Danny's best friend and Henry Thomas has a wonderful cameo. I won't say who he plays but it was a treat. And young Jacob Tremblay gets a great scene as a victim of Rose. He is always a welcome presence.

What does not work in this movie almost kills it. Kyleigh Curran is Abra, the young woman with all the power and she is deadly dull. I never cared about the character nor was I invested in her. She was just there. She had one great scene when Danny's mind takes over her body so she is capable of good acting. However, they give her nothing of interest to do or say otherwise. 
The ending, when we finally get to the Overlook after two hours of waiting, is rushed, underwhelming and resolved too quickly. 
I know it is unfair to compare it to the masterwork that came before but it is inevitable. The Shining is remembered because it does everything so well. It is one of the best shot horror movies of all time. The shots and framing of this movie do not come close. 
A marginal recommendation because I liked Ewan McGregor and Rebecca Ferguson enough. I would love to see them together in a better movie. It should have been great but it is good. And it is far too long.

Logo vs web design. Which do you think should be designed first?
Branding is about how your customers will perceive your business. It creates value and that is why customers are willing to pay more. 
Logo design is the foundation in which all other branding is based on. This includes web design, letterhead, marketing materials and social media. 
Logo design heavily impacts web design. The web designer is influenced by the logo. Having said that, clipart logo design will frustrate your web designer and the resulting web design will not be as attractive. Stunning logo design helps make the website attractive. Custom graphics for sidebars, font choices and imagery are details and ideas taken from the logo.
Clients hire designers because they are not sure what they need or want. Sometimes they need help pulling their ideas together. But they understand the value design has on a business. Ultimately knowing the goals and purpose of a company goes a long way in branding a company the right way.

Stunning logo design helps make the website attractive. Custom graphics for sidebars, font choices and imagery are details and ideas taken from the logo. Clients hire designers because they are not sure what they need or want. Sometimes they need help pulling their ideas together. But they understand the value design has on a business. Ultimately knowing the goals and purpose of a company goes a long way in branding a company the right way. #webdesign #websitedesign #business #freelance #freelancer #pr #marketing #marketingdigital #marketingstrategy #smallbusiness #design #designer #construction #restaurant #logodesigner #graphicdesign #owner #yyj #yyc #comoxvalley #nanaimo #victoriabc #smallbusiness #vancouverisland #vancouver #dailylogo #tips

One of the biggest trends this fall is the western look. Casta does it perfectly in this low boot with exquisite detailing. Available in this stunning colour combo as well as a solid grey.

Guess what?!? Down 15 pounds and happy AF because I’m slowly carving my way back to ME! Fit.. vibrant .. super!! A leader who loves her businesses, her corgi, her faith community, her intellectual pursuits and all the things!! .
A big thank you to my iamsuper.fit community for keeping me accountable while I keep you accountable! We are soooooooo in this together! 55lbs more goo for me to release and I am excited to get there with you!
.
How the heck did I pack on the pounds in such a short period of time? 🤷‍♀️ Oh there are a few reasons. But the cool thing is I have the tools and the team and the mindset and heart-set to get me to a more recognizable and comfortable version of myself!
.
There is still time to make some healthy changes before the end of 2019 together.
.
There is no better day than today to start (again).

After a weekend full of early holiday festivities, these are the only "Monday blues" that I'm interested in! 🎇
