Hello! Welcome to Castle Avenue. I’m Camilla; wearer of so many hats (because I just can’t decide on one). A sales professional by day, photographer by night (and mornings and weekends) blogger in between and forever a dreamer.
I’m a Canadian girlie girl who adores castles, loves love and obsesses over anything sparkly and pink (especially tulle and flamingos). My new-ish homeowner status (with my Beau Eric) has created a love for all things décor and DIY (I’m no professional but learning). My recent two month break from work has really turned me into a wifey- in-training; learning how to cook (I’ve been known to burn water), mastering couponing (you’ll learn I’m very frugal), cleaning meticulously, all in the hopes of one day being a stay at home mommy (told you I’m a dreamer) and maybe a vegetarian (not likely but with great intentions).
This blog was created during a time of heartache (although has been envisioned for a couple of years) to be my journal, my work, a home for things that inspire me and a place to connect with fabulous people like you! Sept 2013-Sept 2014 was not our year…at all. We first lost our one year old furbaby Chloe who we adored like a child, followed by the loss of our actual child a precious teeny baby boy named Liam born sleeping at 18.5 weeks. This blog is my heart…my story. I hope to join the wonderful blogging community journaling about love, grief, growth, as well as all the fun stuff like tackling DIY, learning how to cook, trying to fiiiiinally pretty up our home (on a budget), fashion (I’m no fashionista but come across some great steals), romance, becoming a mommy (fingers crossed soon!) and just blogging all things pretty.
Put your feet up, grab a cup of coffee or glass of wine, (depending on the time of day) and make yourself at home.
