• It Takes a Village: Meet our Spruce Families!

    Want to know something really funny? In the two years (wow, time flies!!) since we all first met up with this crazy idea of opening Spruce, our entire families have never gotten together! We've done plenty with mamas and kids in tow and enjoyed a number of couples events and evenings out but, until this past week, it's never worked out to coordinate all 21 of us. Um yeah, twenty-one...that's one BIG happy family!!! Our handsome hubbies were asked to play models  for an upcoming dads-and-kids magazine feature (more to come on that soon!) and, lucky for us, our friend Mikaela was the photographer on site and she snapped some family photos for us before and after the boys' session. Elisa's son Austin lives in Kelowna so couldn't join us but the rest of us met up for a casual BBQ at Lily's new townhouse (yes, we all fit!) and Mikaela captured some great candid moments with us and the kiddos. Meet the families behind Spruce Collective!

    Toddlers make everything more fun :)

    And that's a wrap! We love our big new family and it's been so fun watching the kids grow up together (and be born!) on this huge adventure we've been on. Looking forward to sharing plenty more behind-the-scenes stories and pictures with you very soon. Happy Father's Day to all you papas out there too! Cheers :)
