New Goals, Baby-Inspired

New Goals, Baby-Inspired

I’m now 32 and we have a baby and so much has changed!  Obviously my 33rd year will be dominated by baby adventures… there will be so many firsts, and challenges, and memories to cherish! Thus when I thought about my goals, it seemed natural that baby would take the forefront.  That said, I also […]

Unexpected Luxuries (or why I didn’t get all my goals completed last year)

A year ago things like diamonds, private jets and fancy cars would have topped the list when I thought of luxury.  Taking incredible vacations and having endless funds and not ever having to work anymore would have also been considered.  Certainly, the act of setting and completing goals wouldn’t have even crossed my mind.  It’s funny how […]

There’s No Time Like the Present

I spoiled myself yesterday with this most beautiful bouquet of flowers! It wasn’t because I was feeling down and needed a pick-me-up.  It wasn’t a reward for some job well done or a special occasion.  It wasn’t because I’m pregnant and hormonal, or because I needed to stop at the flower store anyways.  It was just because.

Overthinking Kindness

To my surprise, one of the 32 goals I set for myself this year, to complete 12 random acts of kindness, has continually eluded me.  To the untrained eye (you, dear reader) that might indicate that I’m just generally an unkind person, after all how hard can it be to be kind to someone at […]

Framing Our Decor Situation

Framing Our Decor Situation

One of my favourite ways to make a house (or a townhouse) feel like a home is to put pictures up on the walls.  A few years ago in our previous house, I embarked on a risky endeavour creating two collages on the walls of our living room/front hallway.  I briefly tried out some arrangements […]

Home Office Space

I’ve had the opportunity to work from home every once in a while now for well over a year – probably going on two years at this point.  I’m lucky to have a manager that believes in providing the best possible working environment, and if that means allowing an employee some time to work on […]

That Time I Didn’t Join a Choir

Earlier this year, I had a dream!  A dream of belonging to a group!  A group of individuals with the compulsion to raise their voices in harmonious melody at any moment!  A melody to reach the far corners of the rehearsal space and beyond, drawing in others just looking for a place to belong!  A […]

Doc, and Done

With my intention to lead a healthier lifestyle, one of my goals this year was to find a family physician. So we did. And we all lived happily ever after. Were you expecting more? I wasn’t entirely sure I needed to get into the details about finding a family doctor since it’s really not that exciting, […]

Call Me Mrs. Four Eyes

I got my eyes checked! That means I get to check another goal off my list! I bet some people think this doesn’t really sound goal-worthy, and in the grand scheme of things, that may be the case. But not every goal needs to be completely life changing, am I right? Besides, eye appointments aren’t […]

Weekend in Osoyoos

I get to check another goal off my list!  And this one was all fun and no work, which makes me a happy girl! When I created my goals, I wanted them to be more than about the food I’m eating and the weight I’m weighing and the exercise I’m getting.  I wanted my goals […]
