About us

heatherjustin-9198  <- Hi I’m Heather (full disclosure, this is my wedding day and I never look this good!). I am a Registered Dietitian with a Masters in Applied Human Nutrition on the tiny island on the east coast of Canada, Prince Edward Island. It took me a long time to find a permanent area code as I bopped around trying to find one that felt like home. Low and behold, I ended up right back where I started. Now I live here with my husband (I’m still getting used to that word, we have now been married for 2 months) and our 15 month old son. The past two years have been a whirlwind, a new house, pregnancy, being a Mom, getting married, and working full time. Alas, I’ve got a lot to say these days!

My list of hobbies is somewhat flat, I’m working on that but I remember liking things once. I love to travel and see new sights and the ocean is my calm place. I would call myself a foodie in that I love to eat new cuisines with tons of wonderful new flavors….I just don’t like to cook said food. I’m working on that too. I’m not shy to say that I have a pretty huge obsession with reality tv-Big Brother, Bachelor/ette, Survivor, Kardashians (eep!), Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, I will even take on an Ink Master marathon. I love it all. My line of work is counselling, all day, erryday. So, there is nothing I love more than ending my day with some absolutely mindless television, and the odd glass of vino 🙂

Hi-I’m Janna! I live in Yellowknife, NWT in beautiful northern Canada. On a bit of whim, and a bit planned out, I moved here to find a teaching position and new adventure. It worked. I’m now permanently employed, enthralled with the north and engaged to the love of my life. And in all less than three years!

I work at an Aboriginal school and truly enjoy my job. It’s challenging, fun and I learn so much every week. Beyond work, my hubby-to-be and I enjoy spending time together cooking, traveling, laughing and enjoying the north. We have the best circle of friends here and we attribute much of our happy lifestyle to our amazing friends. I love trying new recipes, pretending I can curl in our beer league and am obviously #sweatingforthewedding.

On a hella ligher note, I’m obsessed with the Mindy Project and Friends. I would love to be friends with Morgan and Ross in real life. Instagram is my fav. Planning a wedding is more fun than I would have predicted and I’m trying to incorporate my love of glitter and sparkly things into every aspect. My family is on the East Coast and I miss them all the time. A year ago I lost my father, but his love of the Green Bay Packers, Jimmy Buffett and a cold Corona lives on through all of us.
