Serrano Goes to Cirque! 

I spent last Sunday afternoon in the VIP tent at the Cirque de Soliel! My bosses took the entire Serrano Imports staff to the Luzia show as a little staff appreciation gift. We were given our VIP passes and escorted into a dark tent filled with with cozy sofas, Mexican decor, hot and delicious hors d’oeuvres, and womenContinue reading “Serrano Goes to Cirque! “

Writing Prompt: let your hair down

I noticed recently that Man Repeller has a monthly writing prompt.  They ask aspiring writers to send in their work and publish one on the first Saturday of every month. I submitted this month and although mine was not featured, I thought I would post it anyway.  Enjoy!  Fact: I am not a snob Also a fact:Continue reading “Writing Prompt: let your hair down”

The Bride’s Diary – Marriage Fears

She’s scared of many things but failure in particular keeps her up at night. There are many things a person can fail, like a test or dream. You can learn from most failures and move on, and she is used to those kinds of failures. One thing that she doesn’t want to fail at isContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – Marriage Fears”

Slow Down

I’ve been told many times that I need to slow down. Whether it comes to texting, tweeting, writing, reading, captioning, getting orders out, or simply making decisions, I tend to rush. I feel the need to get things finished quickly so that I can move onto something else; I am beginning to understand that fasterContinue reading “Slow Down”

The Bride’s Diary – 4 months to go

With four months until the big day I’m trying to get the shower organized, figure out which balances are due and when, confirming flowers and decor, sending out invitations, and ensuring my wedding dress will fit after the alterations are complete. Admittedly all of this is stressing me out. I’m unsure if it is theContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – 4 months to go”

It’s Okay

My niece’s personality blooms every time I see her. She is becoming so smart and beautiful that sometimes I forget I’m talking to an almost three-year-old. Her latest thing is exclaiming “it’s okay, it’s okay” with her hands up in surrender whenever she does something naughty (does anyone still use that word?). Her tone isContinue reading “It’s Okay”

The Bride’s Diary – The Bachelorette

Another wedding milestone has come and gone. On Saturday my sister hosted my bachelorette party at Lula Lounge in Toronto. My sister struggled with the planning because I’m kind of weird. I don’t like clubs or big groups, I go to bed early and send my spare time in bed reading. I would rather goContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – The Bachelorette”

It began with a phone call

It began with a phone call, as most adventures do. My brother on the other end of the line, speaking in a hushed tone. He got a flat tire on the highway and needed someone to bring him a spare, some tools, and patience. I volunteered and dragged Alex along. We found my brother andContinue reading “It began with a phone call”
