Satisfaction (not) Guaranteed

WANT NOTHING + DO ANYTHING = HAVE EVERYTHING If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’m currently reading The Happiness Equation. I’m trying to figure out how to be happy every single day. First things first – I am NOT unhappy. I am very happy. I have a good family, a wonderful husband,Continue reading “Satisfaction (not) Guaranteed”

How’s Married Life?

When family and friends ask me how married life is going, I stand there with a blank look on my face  or stare at my phone with a million thoughts running through my head. Most of these thoughts are works of fiction filled with lust, drama, and romance. How’s married life? they ask Oh it’sContinue reading “How’s Married Life?”

Name Change

What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other word would smell as sweet. – Juliet Before Alex placed a ring on my finger I hadn’t given much thought to assuming my his last name.  Alex and I aren’t the most traditional couple so those around me assumed I would keepContinue reading “Name Change”

The Bride’s Diary – In Retrospect

Although my day as a bride has come and gone, I want to share one more instalment of The Bride’s Diary. One more blog post to document the three regrets I have from the BIG DAY. I wish I hadn’t asked the seamstress to make my dress as tight as humanly possible. As mentioned in my previous post, itContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – In Retrospect”

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”

The Bride’s Diary – ONE WEEK TO GO

It’s safe to say that I’ve been rather distracted lately. Apart from all of the last-minute wedding details (which my mom has graciously taken charge of) there’s also this heavy cloud of confusion weighing on my heart. Let me explain… The confusion has nothing to do with the wedding. That is the only thing thatContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – ONE WEEK TO GO”

The Bride’s Diary – 28 Days to Go!

As I sat down at La Bamboche with my fluffy cappuccino I realized that I was about an hour early for my final wedding dress fitting. MY FINAL WEDDING DRESS FITTING. Which meant that I would get to take my dress home because it’s so close to the wedding that there’s no point in keeping atContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – 28 Days to Go!”

The Bride’s Diary – The Bridal Shower

  Words I never thought I would put in a sentence (and actually mean them): I loved everything about my bridal shower. Let’s be clear, this is not because I didn’t think we could pull it off, but because I have never been a huge fan of bridal showers. Although I’ve had fun at allContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – The Bridal Shower”
