Vancouver, Canada & Beyond.
I'm on a journey, and that means sharing my own personal stories and experiences. My goal is to be relatable, provide inspiration while being authentic. Whatever your lemons, we can do this together.
They say the kitchen is the heart of the home, and while that may be true, my heart wasn’t excited about my ho-hum kitchen. That said, It wasn’t a horrible kitchen. On the contrary, it served a purpose for five years while I contemplated its fate. The design was probably very “of the moment” when […]
Alas, the New Year has arrived, and so far, it’s feeling remarkably similar to its counterpart, especially when it comes to life during a pandemic. So, yes, we’re still wearing masks (so done with them), dealing with yet another variant and hopefully getting our boosters (I got mine yesterday). It’s shocking, and I can’t believe […]
It’s 5 a.m., ugh! I hear my neighbour’s young children bouncing down the stairs next door and quickly realize the “why” of my early morning wakeup. Santa, aka the big guy, must have arrived, which put a smile on my face and reminded me of my young family’s Christmas pasts. The rule in our household […]
A breakup of any kind is difficult, period. This past summer marks five years of living independently, aka life after divorce, giving me pause as I reflect on how far I’ve come and where I’ve landed. When my marriage ended, I couldn’t have imagined my future, let alone the following week. There were soooo many […]
I’m in a funk. The definition; avoiding (a task or thing) out of fear or just not knowing how to do something or where to begin. Yep! Totally me, avoid, avoid, avoid. That’s not to say it’s a bad thing. Learning something new through experiences or studies is a process; knowledge opens our minds to […]
I’m excited to be entertaining again, although I’m a bit rusty these days, so finding something easy and tasty to prepare is key. I love experimenting with new recipes; even better is making them up as I go along, adding my own special twist. Some of my most memorable meals are the ones inspired by […]
When I think of June, naturally, summer comes to mind, conjuring up many memories for me. With the season officially launched, I can’t help reminisce about those lazy days of summer spent at the beach, the smell of sunscreen and BBQ’s (oooyah), a chilled rosé, homemade potato salad, local strawberries, alfresco dining and the sweet […]
Savary Island is one of those dream destinations everyone desperately seeks but is unsuccessful at finding. Well, I found it! It’s practically in my backyard (not exactly), which is a bonus! Although I feel fortunate to have discovered this piece of paradise 12 years ago on a family vacation, I didn’t know much about it. […]
Hi Everyone, I’m back! Oh my gosh! Were you wondering what the heck happened to me?! Well, I decided to take some time away from my writing to design my new I COVET website. What d’ya think?! I’m super excited about how it turned out. I know what you’re thinking. Have I recently completed a computer […]
Valentine’s day is a day dedicated to love. So yes, I’m stating the obvious. But, some may argue, why celebrate just one day? Expressing your love for someone should be shown in some form every day. Right? Yes, I agree, and I do. When you’re in a relationship, it’s easy to get caught up in […]
