Canada day to us is truly the height of summer, so we thought it would be perfect to debut a video we were working on last year highlighting some of the fun things we got up to in the summer of 2017. We’ve loved this song ‘Not Letting Go’ (by Tinie Tempah feat. Jess Glynne) ever since it was released back in 2015 in the UK, and we’ve been waiting for the right time to finally use it for a music video. That time came last year, when we decided to go for it since we luckily had a few cottages, BBQs, birthdays, and pool parties to attend! Our summers are usually packed with so many weddings that it’s hard to find the time to have fun, so we couldn’t have been happier last year when we were able to experience some much needed work/life balance!

We can’t write this post without thanking everyone that was involved. We literally just showed up to events with our cameras and forced people to rap and sing into the cameras! NO WARNINGS at all…we are pretty terrible people. However, with little to no practice, our family and friends absolutely kiiiiiiilled it! Thank you guys for entertaining us with either your flawless performance or with your many hilarious takes 🙂 This video is the perfect time machine for us in the future, to remember all the good times we had with each other. We’re sure that everyone who knows us will be on high alert when we come around for parties and gatherings down the line. Watch out, you may be next on the list!

Below we’ve included two throwbacks to music videos we did in 2012 and 2013. One we did during our engagement weekend at a ridiculously stunning cottage in Parry Sound and the other during an American west coast road trip with the fam. If you haven’t checked it out before, have a look! It’s the reason we continue getting our families involved on this music video path – a perfect way to highlight our memories together!

We hope all of you are enjoying a nice cold drink somewhere on this hot summer day! HAPPY CANADA DAY!!! Exciting for Henry as it’s his first as a Canadian 🙂

Until the next post,
Joanie and Henry x
