Finding Your Purpose

Do you post selfies to your social media accounts?  Do you find yourself counting the number of ‘likes’ each post gets? Do you compare your selfie picture and its ‘likes’ quantity to your best friends post?  I know I have and if we are all honest with ourselves, we all...

Dream Boards

We are about to jump into a brand new year.  2021. What will this year bring us?  What adventures or challenges may come our way?  What will we strive to accomplish? When you enter a new year, do you often feel overwhelmed? Excited?  Scared?  I have and I do.  A...

Christmas Eve Traditions

Christmas Eve has to be one of my most favourite days.  I absolutely love it.  From the time I wake up to anxiously going to sleep (even as an adult, I still don’t sleep much on Christmas Eve night – just like when I was a child).  Do you have Christmas traditions? 8 And...

Christmas Spirit

It’s that time of year again where we all sit down cozy on the couch and watch Christmas movies. I love this time of year and I just love watching the Christmas classics (I have to admit that I am also a sucker for the Hallmark movies). I will honor...

Mom’s Shortbread Cookies

Christmas is approaching and I love the baking that goes hand and hand with it.  One of my favourites is my Mom’s shortbread cookie.  I have eaten these cookies from the time I can remember.  I believe the recipe was my Grandma’s, passed on to my Mom and then passed on to me.  I...

Natural Oven Cleaner

Are you like me?  You dread having to clean your oven?  I even have a self cleaning oven and I dread doing it.  I was in the habit of using the self cleaning oven option in the spring or fall when I could have the windows open.  It leaves such a stench in the...

We have a tradition in our house.  When we decorate (and by ‘we’, I mean my husband) the outside of our house for Christmas, I go and get us some Starbucks Christmas drinks.  My go-to is the Peppermint Mocha (aka Christmas in a cup) and his is the Caramel Crème Brule.   The...

On The Flip Side

The other day, I was at the gym and enjoying my workout listening to my music. I usually follow along with an exercise app – this particular workout, I was using the Nike App.  I finished up with the app and set the 10lb weight on the bench next to me...

Remembrance Day, November 11

Remembrance Day

Today is Remembrance Day.  What does that mean to you?  When I think of today, I think of all those veterans who were overseas, fighting for our country and away for very long periods from their families.  The sacrifice they did – all for US – is heartfelt (to say the least).  I cannot...

My Favourite Things

Since Christmas is soon approaching, I am going to pull an Oprah and write about My Favourite Things.  Did you ever watch Oprah’s Favourite things?  Or even Ellen’s 12 Days of Christmas?  I used to tune in each day hoping that it was going to be aired on that day.  I loved seeing the...
