hunger makes me a modern girl

You know, sometimes you’ve just got to say forget it and decide that you’re going to give yourself a little bit of a self care day. Also, sometimes you’ve got to tell yourself to get your shit together and get your head in the game so you can actuallyย enjoyย the self care day. I blame Mercury and the solar eclipse. So, instead of being a sad sack all day long I decided to end my sad sackiness after just an hour…

tiny home tour!

The satisfaction of finally have a couch and no longer having to sit on a stool knows no bounds, you guys. I am pleeeeeased. And, because you guys are cute and nice and have actually requested some pictures, I figured I’d post like a mini house tour sort of thing with a few shots of what we’ve done with the place. It’s not quite done – more pictures will go up on the wall and you know, a few things…

the old rice paradox

The ‘Old Rice Paradox’ is something Curtis and I have recently discovered. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of it, because we literally just made it up today. Scientific papers will be forthcoming. The name comes from one of my favourite people in the whole world, my father in law. He one day mused, quietly as he does, that we always make rice in big batches so that we always have leftovers, yet this means that we’re constantly eating old…

slow your roll

CONFESSION ZONE I have been having a little internal war with myself over the last few days and have been hellishly blue as a result. I’ve been feeling totally purposeless without knowing when/where I’ll be working, feeling like I need to have a ‘good’ ‘impressive’ job right off the bat, etc etc. You all know how this internal diatribe goes and it is bogussssss. Really, I should be focusing on enjoying the brand new city I’m living in, taking the…

we have arrived

The time has come guys! After well over a year of planning and dreaming and wishing and more planning, we are officially Haligonians. And daaaaaaaaaang does it feel good! It’s day three and this is the first day we’ve had any real ‘down’ time, which isn’t saying much because we haven’t really relaxed at all today. BUT that being said, it’s all the best kind of busy and tired because we’ve been exploring and hustling around the city getting acquainted…

20 days

I wish you guys could see how slowly I’m typing this out because blogging with a limp noodle hand is comical. Prime example of why no one should trust me near heavy machinery. WE LEAVE IN 20 DAYS! To what feels like the whole other side of the world and we couldn’t be more excited. Literally every day we’re planning and picking things out and curating our new home. The Okanagan has been treating us so well, and even though…

i don’t know what i’m doing

If you guys haven’t found your spiritually kickass life guru yet, I really can’t recommend it enough. I recently went back to the tiny town I grew up in for a visit, and going back sort of gave me one of those weird moments of like… what do I say when people ask what I’m doing? Cause really, I’ve got no idea what I’m doing or what I even reallyย want to do. With our cross country move impending (51 days!!)…

when you go to the mainland

I think for probably the first time in like, 7 years I went to Vancouver and it didn’t rain. Just let that sink in for a minute. I was in Vancouver and it wasn’t raining. Not even a little. I was straight BLESSED UP. I went to visit a few of my favourite ladies before the husband and I leave this glorious west coast for good. It’s always nice to have an experienced Vancouverite in your back pocket to help…
