Thanks for dropping by! 
I’m Colleen: wife, mama-to-be, and lover of pretty things. This is my little corner of the web to try document the beauty in life as it speeds by. You can expect to see lots of parties, décor, good food, photos, and DIY on Lemon Thistle. A little bit of this, a little bit of that- as I refine my passions and challenge my creativity. One day I hope to make up my mind long enough to start a business… but I plan to take my time. Just like my life, this blog is a work in progress.

I’ve been married to my wonderful husband, Shane, for four years and we live in beautiful British Columbia. I’ve spent my life until this point going to school for Events and Conventions Management then Tourism Management and working for hotels or not-for-profits in events and fundraising. Needless to say this has kept us pretty busy, but things are about to change!

Last Christmas we decided we wanted to start a family… this Christmas we will have not one, but two little ones! We never thought twins were a possibility but we couldn’t be more thrilled to be expecting their arrival in the next month or two (notice my bump in the second picture? More bump pics here). We are less than prepared as we are trying to sell our apartment to move to a more family friendly home.

I believe every day deserves to be special, there’s no accomplishment too small to celebrate. I hope that my children will learn to love the little things in life. In a nutshell- this is why I’m doing this.

I hope you check back as I share our adventures in learning parenthood, making our new house a home, and my addiction to DIY, parties, and everything in between. Say hello! I’d love to hear from you: colleenpastoor{at}gmail{dot}com. 

Thanks for making me a part of your day!
