Being a Badass

We are 14 days into the new year and I am 100% focussed on making 2017 work for me. In 2018 I’ll have a mortgage, I will be out of my parents’ basement, and I will finally begin a life with my husband – just the two of us. So 2017 is seemingly one of theContinue reading “Being a Badass”

Hope for a New Year

2016 was not a bad year; I got married, I became slightly more aware of who I am and who I don’t want to be, I witnessed moments where people exposed their true colours and even exposed some of my own. 2016 was a good year and yet, I am insecure, incomplete, and slightly nauseated.Continue reading “Hope for a New Year”

Yo-yoing into the New Year

Last week I decided to try out my new year’s resolution a bit early; I logged out of Twitter and Instagram (I don’t have Snapchat or Facebook) and deleted the apps from my phone. I’m not sure what I thought would happen but I surely wasn’t expecting to feel so…bored. Yes, bored. I didn’t feelContinue reading “Yo-yoing into the New Year”

Spare Change (finding a resolution)

Change is the essence of a new year and a new year is only a few weeks away! Bucket lists are written, dreams are dreamt, goals are carefully thought through, memories remembered (my best nine posts on Instagram for example), trips are planned, and resolutions are made with overachiever vigor. There are many things that changedContinue reading “Spare Change (finding a resolution)”

Anxiety Update

What most people don’t tell you about anxiety is that even when you’re on medication it never fully disappears. It still lives within you, taking up space in your heart and your mind. It moves in and hibernates until something doesn’t go as planned, work is busy, or you get into a fight with yourContinue reading “Anxiety Update”

My Breakfast with Fate

Fate can come in different shapes and forms; it can be personified as a person, place, coincidence, accident, letter, email, or sign. I met Fate mid-Sunday morning at a new diner close to home. This version of Fate came in a 5 foot 2 bundle of confidence and happiness complete with gorgeous eyes and anContinue reading “My Breakfast with Fate”

Gilmore Girls Revival – Full Circle

Okay, let’s talk. Let’s say really long sentences drawn out with anecdotes, metaphors, and witty repertoire. Let’s talk as though there’s no need for breathing, saying all of the words in our heads that radiate from our hearts as if periods, commas, and exclamation marks don’t exist. Let’s talk so fast that we get winded andContinue reading “Gilmore Girls Revival – Full Circle”

Mini-Honeymoon in Toronto

I’ve learned recently that the two questions newlyweds receive most are: Where are you going on your honeymoon? When are you having kids? (Please stop asking me this) With Christmas right around the corner and the simple fact that more than a week off work for myself and my husband wasn’t viable, we decided toContinue reading “Mini-Honeymoon in Toronto”

The Bride’s Diary – WE DID IT

We did it! We travelled a 1.5 year-long road jumping over arguments, dodging (and even embracing) tears, and pausing at crossroads until we reached destination “I DO”. November 11, 2016 was exactly how I hoped it would be; calm, relaxing, and fun. Since we had the ceremony and reception in the same location (The Hazleton Manor)Continue reading “The Bride’s Diary – WE DID IT”

Live Every Single Day

I was at my aunt/florists house the other night pretending to help with wedding things when she admitted to me that my blog posts leave her with a heavy heart. I was a little stunned by the comment – I always thought my posts sounded jovial and inspired. I wanted them to say: I’m content withContinue reading “Live Every Single Day”
