• shifting perspectives

    I haven’t written in a while because if I’m honest, I wasn’t sure what to write.   I have all these half written blog posts started and then my confidence in my writing peters off  and I drop down into the rabbit hole of thinking… it’s not good enough, it’s not perfect.   I never […]

  • Finding my WHY?

    One of the big topics my accountability group discusses is WHY.  Why are you doing this? Why did you decide to start, why do you continue? etc.  The first time that topic came up, I realized to answer my WHY, I had to go back further and be really honest about my HOW.   How […]

  • You are your only limit

    The other night I was listening to this audio book  “Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear” by Elizabeth Gilbert while prepping food for the week, and all of a sudden she said something that made me drop everything I was doing and rewind to hear it again.   She was talking about this saying “Argue […]

  • Be A priority in your life!

    I wrote this post a few weeks ago for our health initiative at work, and thought I would share it here also.  As part of this journey, I want to be my truest self,  so here it goes… I have struggled with my weight and body image for most of my life and have tried […]

  • A Journey begins…

    Oh Heeeeyyyy!  It’s been a while since I’ve been in here … almost four years now that I look at it.  I honestly have no idea how  four years went by in a blink of an eye, but it did.    I lost my way for a while there, consumed with other things in my […]

  • A Day with the Bundy Family

    A few weekends ago I had the pleasure of spending the entire day with one of my favourite families.  These four are pretty special let me tell you!   I have known Sarah  since we first met back in our teens working at Science World… ahhh yes the formative years…  and although she only worked […]

  • Taking Stock

    Its the first day of Autumn today and I thought I would celebrate with this little diddy I found on the Daybook blog.  Autumn is my hands down favourite season…in case you didn’t know already.. here are a couple odes to my love for autumn from last year here and here   Making : plans […]

  • one last post on Colorado before I move on to new topics

    So this week has gotten a little crazier than I thought it was going to be.  I haven’t been home one night yet this week and won’t be home for the remainder.   With surprise visitors from out of town, free hockey tickets, the Lumineers concert and the arrival and snuggling of a new little, […]

  • Denver… continued

    So here is another post filled with landscape photos and no people from my trip a few weeks ago to Denver.  Thank goodness I went when I did, because they had some crazy flooding over the last week that has wreaked havoc on some of the gorgeous places I saw.  Not sure where my head […]

  • Weekend Wanderings in Denver (Part II)- Red Rocks in the daylight

    So I’m a little obsessed with Red Rocks!  If you couldn’t tell by the last post, I absolutely fell in love with this place.  Hands down best venue I’ve ever seen a live show in!  I was so wanting to go back during the day because I just knew that those rocks would be even […]

Paris, a dream come true

For those of you that follow my instagram or facebook page you know that I have been off discovering Paris for the first time.   It was truly AMAZING and while sleeping in my own bed the last two nights has been heaven, my heart is sad to no longer be in the beautiful city […]


  Over the past weekend I got together with K & M and their brand new addition to the family.  C is only five weeks old and is the sweetest, most beautiful little girl you have ever seen.  Despite me thinking she would sleep through the majority of the session, she surprised us all and […]

The Most Ridiculous Post I’ve Ever Written

  This is maybe the most ridiculous post I’ve ever written, but I’m writing it anyways… I have a little love affair with toast. I mean is there anything better than the delicious, intoxicating smell of bread in the toaster ?? Sourdough, whole wheat, white, crunchy olive, rosemary or raisin cinnamon… I really don’t discriminate […]

Words to Live By

I have always been a lover of language and the power of words and often find myself online or in bookstores searching for the best quotes…I can lose hours this way, seriously hours. In highschool and university, I would spend more time finding quotes for essays than writing them themselves. (confession: I have even rewritten entire […]

one of those weeks

Have you ever had one of those weeks… yeah, you know the kind I’m talking about…  the kind that just doesn’t ever seem to end and you feel kind of down and uninspired  and the rain and cold seep back into daily life as if it was March going on November  instead of April… and spring seems […]

Weekend Wanderings

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a proper post and for this I beg your forgiveness. It seems like I arrive home at the end of each day and words just fail me, so I flop into sweats and onto the couch and turn my brain officially off for the night.  That and ever […]
