It’s Fall

It’s Fall

Here we are again. Its officially Fall, and as if someone flicked the switch, summer is sprinting towards fall, giving it a high five ("go get'em!"), you can feel the season changing. For some, its the dread of cooler temperatures, dreary skies and rain. We've already endured a few days of it pelting down, and [...]

An Anniversary

An Anniversary

It's September 1, which is nothing significant for most people, except that today would have been my 30th wedding anniversary. Now, it's a day like any other, and yet it feels like only yesterday when I walked down the aisle. I would be lying if I said I didn't think about it; it's a marriage [...]

A COVID BIRTHDAY

A COVID BIRTHDAY

I'm another year older, I know, it's inevitable, and this time it's during a pandemic! Fun! I gotta say, there are days that I appreciate the simplicity of life during these times, celebrating a birthday is no exception. I wanted to keep my birthday plans easy and stress-free, restaurants are open, but, it's just not [...]

FACING YOUR FEARS

FACING YOUR FEARS

Skydiving? Never! Rock climbing? Definitely not! Riding on the back of a motorbike? Maybe? Call me a wuss, but, these extreme activities scare the living shit out of me! There are different triggers when it comes to fear, and all of us manage them differently. So, what's a girl to do when her guy wants [...]

EARN THE SKIRT

EARN THE SKIRT

Growing up, I wasn't much of a sporty girl, (dare I say a girly, girl?) I was usually last when chosen for sports, and I definitely wasn't climbing trees, I still can't do a cartwheel, but that's probably a good thing. It's not that I didn't want to, I just never thought I was good [...]

FLOWER POWER

FLOWER POWER

Who doesn't love flowers, better yet, receiving them? Stepping into a flower shop, it's like walking into a garden, relieving me of my worries and letting me wander without a care. Filled with rows upon rows of gorgeous flowers, the fragrance, the colours and textures are in abundance. I love them all! Merely escaping with [...]

Romantic getaway to Whistler

Romantic getaway to Whistler

Vancouver has been a rock star when it comes to flattening the curve during coronavirus. With that, the city and the province have been granted the reopening of select businesses, i.e., restaurants, hotels, shops and thankfully, hair salons! Still, there are strict rules surrounding this; social distancing, washing hands or using hand sanitiser and in [...]

T H I R T Y

A  young lady who I've had the pleasure of getting to know this past year is turning 30,   which got me thinking about my thirties. Oh my gosh, it seems like forever ago. My twenties were a blur, fun comes to mind, and I was having a lot of it! I was just getting [...]

#NEWWAYS

#NEWWAYS

These are interesting times, to say the least, self-isolation brings "new ways" for us to socialize. I've experienced virtual coffee mornings with the girls, also happy hour, a holiday dinner and a workout, (which I tried today for the first time) not to mention, a family dinner. Connecting with my family "face to face" during normal [...]

HOME SWEET HOME

HOME SWEET HOME

Hello? Is anyone out there? We just returned from a walk, it was eerie, to say the least. All restaurants, shops and cafés are closed, some boarded up. It feels like the after-effects of a  bomb gone off. We are the only few survivors, except for a restaurant down the street, which is offering wine [...]
