Coffee Spot and Book Shop Stop

Today's adventure was an unexpected delight. The plan was to meet a friend of mine who lives in L'Orignal in Alexandria for coffee and a treat. I left the house bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready to make the 45-minute trek to the village just North East of Cornwall. What I didn't expect was to get caught… Continue reading Coffee Spot and Book Shop Stop

How do you measure success?

It's 8:41 am. I've taken the time to read. I made a nutritious breakfast. (Not a smoothie bowl. OMG. What a disaster that was yesterday.) And now I'm sitting at the kitchen table writing.

It's been all of eight minutes since I announced my plans to shift gears in my professional career. I can't begin to tell you how many people have reached out with good wishes, encouraging words, and yes, even criticisms. I could sit here and tell you that it grinds my gears when people stick their… Continue reading What are you sacrificing for happiness?

Choosing Joy

Have you ever felt like you're just not quite sure where you belong? What should you be doing with your life or where you should head next? No? Cool. Me either.

I Love Love That Shop

It’s a sad and exciting day. One of my very best friends is closing up his downtown shop to reopen at a new location less than a block away. I’m always pleased to see folks who are pursuing their passion succeed and thrive. It’s even better when it’s someone who is near and dear to… Continue reading I Love Love That Shop

I've wanted to write something about all of the women who have inspired me through my journey of Strongman training.

Some are stronger than some of… Continue reading 6 Women Who Inspire Me and Probably Don’t Even Know It


Mismatched Madness = Joy

If you follow my Instagram feed, you may already know about my weekend of setting up my creative space. I have been living in this home for over 2 years now, and I have failed miserably at making use of the office. I kept telling myself that my space needed to perfect for it to… Continue reading Mismatched Madness = Joy
