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 really want to do. With our cross country move impending (51 days!!)…

life lately + food update

Okay, first thing is first: we recently got a diffuser and my whole house smells so good right now you guys, I just needed to get that out there. It’s distracting and wonderful. I don’t know about you guys, but February snuck up on me so fast. I feel like Christmas was both forever ago and only yesterday. Time is just moving so fast! Before I know it, we’re going to be packing up and leaving this beautiful city where we’ve…

a message from my tiny couch

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday night. It feels like a success that we’ve made it this far this week, doesn’t it? I’m counting it as one, for sure. Class for me started this week, which has so far involved me doing two gruelling ‘introduce yourself’ assignments. Just kidding. About the gruelling part. I’m sure you got that. Anyways. We’re off to a pretty good start to the week, and I’m thinking that’s going to carry on. I went to the gym yesterday…

thoughts on food

I have been thinking a lot about food. I mean, what else is new really, but with a more critical and determined eye than usual. Normally its just like ‘hell yeah, lets eat it’. I’ve been trying to be consistent in watching what I eat and choosing my food carefully. And then, you know, the holidays happened and all of that went out the window. Which isn’t really an excuse but I’m not going to drag myself over it, so.…

twenty seventeen

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had the very merriest of holiday seasons and enjoyed it all – the good and the bad. I gotta say, I’m happy to see the back of 2016. I’m not super into new years resolutions because I feel like if you’re going to make a positive change you should just do it when you’re actually ready and hopefully then it’ll actually stick. However! I am into the renewed sense of purpose that…

stormy mornings are for…

I feel extra lucky and thankful today that I have mornings where I can get up slowly (wrestling the night guard out of my mouth not withstanding), enjoy some quiet moments, and spend time on a beach watching clouds roll in while I enjoy my coffee. I feel grateful today that I was afforded peace because of the courage of others. That I get to sit here, enjoying a day off and my biggest worry at this exact moment is…

darkness must pass

What are we holding on to, Sam? That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for. I have not, like many, stopped thinking about the results of last nights American election. It is heart rending, breaking, crushing in ways I couldn’t imagine until now. And yes, I am Canadian. I am lucky enough to live in a country that protects my human rights. So many are not. But this is no longer about a single…

last week

I’ve officially started my last week at my current job – time feels like it’s moving both too fast and too slow. A bit of a rip in the space time continuum sort of vibe right now. I’m so excited to start my new position and am so lucky to have a new opportunity. Yet, still bittersweet. I love the little family I’ve made where I am now, and it’s so weird to think that I’m not going to be…

winds of change

Whew, what a whirlwind couple of weeks guys – and a couple more coming up. I don’t know if this has ever happened to you, but not long ago I was laying in our bed praying and praying and praying. I kept saying ‘I’m ready, I’m ready for something new. I’m ready for my next step. Lay it on me.’ And then something came up that I thought might be what I was waiting for, but there was a little…

happy thanksgiving!

I honestly think my favourite part of thanksgiving (aside from stuffing, let’s be real) is seeing everyone take the time to share what they’re thankful for. Sounds a little obvious, but it’s true – it’s not often that you get to peek inside the most precious parts of peoples lives and they tell you what matters most to them. I think, instinctively, we try to keep those parts close and quiet and safe because they mean so much to us.…
