One Of My Favourite Toys

With smart phones, compact cameras, and access to DSLRs - we are never without a way to snap a photo of whatever strikes our fancy.  As a child who grew up sneaking her mother's 110 camera to take photos of random things around the house, I can't deny my love of all things photography.  And … Continue reading One Of My Favourite Toys

Where I’ve Been

Well hello there! Many of you have been checking in on a daily basis, no doubt wondering where in the world I had disappeared to.  On May 26th, Vic and I were involved in a rear-end collision.  We were headed to grab a little pizza I had called in for supper and while stopped at … Continue reading Where I’ve Been


For months I've wanted to share this post.  To share my story.  But for several reasons, I couldn't bring myself to.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to have my utmost vulnerable moments ripped open for the world to see and judge.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to expose my thoughts and feelings the … Continue reading #getloud

World Book Day: Nonfiction/Biography

Now this is my jam.  If ever you're looking for me in a book store, this is where you'll find me - lost among the rows and rows of non-fiction and biographies. *sigh* People fascinate me.  I love, love, love reading about the lives of various individuals - where they come from, their cultural beliefs, … Continue reading World Book Day: Nonfiction/Biography

World Book Day: Business

I am 100% bookworm. As in, there is nothing that makes me happier than having a new book to curl up with.  I am an enigma to my family because no one has a love of books quite like mine.

We have heard the spiels about 'Be your own … Continue reading The Reality of Direct Sales

Joyeux Anniversaire Moi Un Mini!

Ahh kid you're killing me. 14. No longer the dancing, singing little princess I could squish with a hug. No. Now you stand taller than I am, with a wardrobe I could borrow from!  It's okay to slow down a little, you know.  I feel as though we're all going to miss your teenage years if … Continue reading Joyeux Anniversaire Moi Un Mini!

Happy New Year

I won't sugar-coat it; I was pretty damn excited to see the clock strike midnight last night.  I have been ever so anxious to put 2016 behind me.  Turn the page, close the entire damn book - just forget all about it for a bit.  But waking to a beautiful sunrise, fresh new year on the calendar and the … Continue reading Happy New Year

2016; You Have Been Incredible

Oh 2016. Where to begin. At this point, I would normally be doing up a post on all of the things I've accomplished; goals I've conquered; a year in review.  This year, I'm going to do it a little differently.  Gone are the illusions to a picture perfect year. Let's get real for a minute. … Continue reading 2016; You Have Been Incredible
