Iceland is easily one of my most favourite countries I have visited. Not only was it my first solo trip, I also ambitiously decided to travel around Iceland’s entire ring road in just 4 days. While I would definitely recommend additional days, if you don’t have them it’s still worth the adventure to cram it […]

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.

Continuing on in the spirit of absolutely crushing my parents’ birthdays this year, I decided to fly back to Ontario for a quick minute with a mission of surprising my dad for his birthday. It was a big one this year – the big 6-0. What was particularly funny about this trip was about two […]

surprising my dad for his 60th

As far as moms go, hands-down, I have the best one out there. This year was a special year as it was her 50th birthday. I knew I wanted to do something magical for her. We had tossed around the idea of a euro backpacking trip but ended up deciding on a restful week in […]

Mama J goes to Maui for her 50

Long-distance friendships can be difficult to maintain, but there’s something so special when someone cares enough to travel across the country to visit you – even better when you get to partake in a fun camping activity! One of my dearest friends, Stephanie, made the trek before she started her new job. This called for […]

how to keep in touch with friends: a traveling notebook

Exciting news over here! Tomorrow I leave on my first business trip! I’m incredibly excited, and can’t wait for the new responsibilities. The awesome part is it’s with a client back home so I’ll be able to see friends and family on my trip as well. Here’s what I’ve packed for some reading material while […]

my first business trip & graphic design books to read on the plane.

three books titled, 'StrengthsFinder2.0', 'Work for Money, Design for Love' and 'ReWork', on a table beside a white starbucks cup.

This weekend I trekked to Banff with my family. It’s about 4 hours away from Edmonton, so a pretty good chunk of time in the car…. perfect opportunity to make another one of these cute little bunnies. Crocheting in the car made the road trip go by so much faster. Thankfully, I don’t typically get […]

I’m beginning to adore living in Alberta. This past Saturday I made my second trip into the mountains for my first time snowboarding at Marmot Basin. My sister’s work put on a social event to head out and get some skiing and snowboarding in. Last minute a lift ticket became available and after a little […]

Back in November, the women of my family traveled from three different places and met up in Maui for a week of paradise and celebrating my mom’s birthday. Maui has such a diverse geography. Rainforests, volcanoes, and ocean fronts. It was truly beautiful. One of the only things on my to-do list for this vacation was […]
