Sometimes we need deep courage. When we get out of bed. When we walk into work. On the phone with our mom. Facing that friend. Going to church. Life isn't easy. Lately for me, I've needed deep courage in ballet class. Leotards and tights. Buns and ballet slippers. What was once an excitement and highlight … Continue reading Deep Courage when Fear + Insecurity Strikes
Christmas can be a tough season. It's overwhelming, rushed, bustled, stressful, and can include family drama when everyone squishes together under one roof. This week I was inches from being run over by a car because they were too rushed to see that I was clearly right in front of them! I totally get it, … Continue reading Preparing for Christmas & Skipping the Crazy
In lieu of a warm and long fall here in Southern Ontario, I thought I would post some photos taken in September during apple picking. From these apples we made chips, sauces, crisps, and pies. Yum. What do you do in fall?
Passion has never usually been a problem for me. I was the girl who cared. I cared about the environment. I cared about suffering. I cared about injustice.

Summer is glorious. My summer was restful, beautiful, joy-filled, and fun. I spent time in gardens, long-missed cities, and with dear old friends. My mind is filled with thousands of snapshots that I wish I could share, but here's 7 for now.

But I finished my #NoBrainerWardrobe project and wanted to show you some of the results! Working through the workshop … Continue reading Go-To Outfit ||#NoBrainerWardrobe

I'm so grateful for those who have been supportive and excited along with me - it makes the process so much easier. Honestly, Hayley Morgan's content in the No Brainer Wardrobe is … Continue reading The PURGE: How To || #NoBrainerWardrobe
Confession: clothes stress me out. Shopping, outfits, knowing what matches, and formals are the WORST. How I look and what I'm wearing are the largest contributors to me feeling insecure. It seems I'm always looking at others and admiring their clothes and how they look, try to imitate them. I know, I know. Most people … Continue reading Clothing = Stress: #NoBrainerWardrobe
Long gone are the summer days of sitting on a beach for hours with my stack of fiction novels beside me, the lake water beckoning when the sun got too hot. Growing up I seemed to all about books, books, and books - and I know many of you were the same. But now my life is shifting, and what and how I'm reading is shifting too.
