Have you scrolled through the photos on your phone lately? Notice anyone missing from your approximately 2.5 bazillion photos? Oh, that’s right, YOU! Moms are diligent about capturing memories for everyone else in the family, but you also need your time to shine. Grab your partner, a selfie stick, or your most competent child and make your way to Downtown Langley for their epic mural walk.
Here’s a peek at 6 of the 25 murals you (and I suppose the rest of your family) can strike a pose at.
Butterfly Freedom- 20436 Fraser Hwy. | Judy Pohl
Flowers and Butterflies and Sunshine, oh my! This beautiful mural by Judy Pohl is serving up all the happy, Spring-time vibes. A great spot to pose for any member of the family.
#ThePowerOfWomenIsInifinite – 20460 Fraser Hwy. | Verna Brown
Bright, funky, and powerful (just like you, mama)! Tucked behind Forever Yours Lingerie in Fuller Lane, you won’t be able to stop yourself from flashing a peace sign and shouting “Girl Power.” It’s pretty much 1999, and you’re pretty much a Spice Girl.
I Am- 20460 Fraser Hwy. | Verna Brown
An Instagram favorite, for sure! If you need a reminder of how tenacious, passionate, vibrant, and fierce you are, this is your spot, baby. Grab a photo, and then buy an awesome bra because this mural is also right behind Forever Yours Lingerie in Fuller Lane (pun intended? I hope so).
Octopus Extraordinaire – 20611 Fraser Hwy. | Judy Pohl Madalynn Pohl| Verna Brown
Wait! Did that Octopus just move? Your eyes aren’t deceiving you; the Octopus Extraordinaire is one of several Moving Murals. Keep your eye out for QR code tiles that indicate a mural has been activated and added to the Moving Mural Experience. If your kids weren’t into posing for pictures before, this spectacular feature is sure to convince even the most reluctant model.
Preserve Love- 20421 Douglas Cres. | Alex Stewart
This gorgeous mural is a great spot to snap a snuggle with your mini or a smooch with your sweetheart. Find this beauty right beside Balkan Signs.
Bright- 5496 Salt Lane | Jordan Ravensbergen
Before you grab your Blue Lavender Latte from Pink Avo and head home, stop by this little gem hidden away in Salt Lane. Another perfect Spring-time spot to brighten up your day and your social media feed.
