I’ll be the first to admit, I have quite the rollercoaster of emotions on any given day. I can go through a week feeling amazing about life and then live the next week absolutely miserable. It is a daily battle for me to choose happiness and choose to love the life I’m living right now. […]

loving who you are in the moment

Pottery has been a craft medium I have been swooning over since Elise started making her own dishes. I talked about taking a pottery class for the first time so much that my sister even put it on my 27 x 28 list. Sarah and I were going to try and take a drop-in pottery class […]

first time taking a pottery class

With my birthday just around the corner, I’m running out of time to complete my 27 x 28 list. I’m oh-so-close!  On my list is to have my first spa experience. There were two items I could knock off at the same time, get a massage and get a facial.  Believe it or not, in my […]

my first massage and spa experience

42.2 km. That’s a lot. The length of a marathon to be exact.   For whatever reason, a marathon has always held such high prestige in my brain. The people who can run a marathon are superhumans. And therefore, it’s always been an overall bucket list item of mine to run a whole marathon.  But, let’s […]

running my first half marathon.

I never really understood the importance of professional organizations, so naturally, I had never thought to submit for professional awards. I was a part of one throughout college with a student membership and yet I never took advantage of any of the benefits it offered. When I started my current job, my boss was big […]

3 reasons to submit for professional awards

It’s been two years since I started working at my current job. When I was applying, I told my sister there’s no way I’m getting this job. I’m so unqualified. Apparently, I was wrong. Not only was I the most qualified candidate (according to my boss), I’ve been fortunate enough to overhaul a bunch of […]

‘not quite a promotion’ promotion

While I was back in Ontario surprising my dad for his 60th birthday, I was able to sneak in going back to my church for the Sunday service. I know this probably isn’t what my sister intended when she put ‘Go to church’ on my 27 x 28 list, but I’m going to count it anyway. […]

feels like going home

My 27 x 28 list had to join a yoga class. I had every intention of joining a studio and attending regularly, but I quickly learned and accepted that exercise classes after work usually will never happen. On top of that, I am still the world’s worst morning person.  So rather than beat myself up […]

grace and yoga.

Let me start out by saying – making new friends as adults is an absolute struggle! It’s so hard! We take for granted the availability of people looking for friends in our college years. Once you get out into the real world, building genuine connections is one of the most challenging things you can set […]

from co-workers to friends.

Rest. It’s so important. Let’s talk about that word for a moment. Dictionary.com defines it as: a period or interval of inactivity, repose, solitude, or tranquility For the longest time, I always worked my buns off. I started my first paper route at the ripe age of nine years old. Throughout all of high school, […]
