• 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

  • 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 […]

Keeping House

So there is this amazing shop on Broadway  called Stepback.  I try to check it out at least twice a month and always end up swooning over some new (well old) treasure that has found its way into the shop.  I sometimes wish I just lived inside the store because it is always filled with […]

For Mom

It was Mom’s big birthday last month and I decided I wanted to put together something really special for her. Something that would show her how much she is loved and how much she inspires us all.  So before I show you the pictures, let me give you a little backstory on how this came […]

The Public Market

This past Sunday the sun graced us with her presence and so M and I made a mad dash to get outside.  Melriches coffee in hand, my trusty Canon and lots of layers, and we were off to Granville Island Public Market.  I truly LOVVVVVVEEE the marketplace. I usually don’t buy much, but it’s just […]

Five

For those of you on instagram, you may have seen this going around.  After a morning of catching up on my favourite blogs ( yes I know, I’m super behind), I thought it would be fun to follow along in the likes of Natalie and Sydney and pass it around here.    So here it […]

A Little #TBT for You!

So in honour of it being Thursday and also because I am just really  missing the warm breezy weather of island life, I am posting a little throwback Thursday up here on the blog.  These are some photos I have been meaning to post since NOVEMBER and kept forgetting about. So here you go…. can’t […]

A Weekend in the Snow (Part II)

While the first post about last weekend was all about adventures outside, I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that the majority of our time was actually spent inside the cabin with our cozy fireplace and playing with littles. What a difference five years can make…Five years ago, this post would have been filled […]

A Weekend in the Snow (Part I)

This past weekend my friends and I packed ourselves into our snow tired vehicles and headed up to Whistler for a weekend getaway of snow, relaxation and an awesome round of Cards Against Humanity (seriously, if you haven’t played this game, you can download it for free from the website here). It is SO.WORTH.IT!   […]

Signs of Spring

It’s that time of year when you are praying for spring to come soon…like down on your knees begging for even the slightest sign that the colder temperatures are fading and that the worst of the season is behind us… please oh please let it be over soon…pretty pretty pretty please. This has been the […]
