For the Love of Collecting


Okay, so does anyone love tsum tsums as much as I do? ( I know you do!) I bought a little plastic one for my kids and I fell in love with it more than they did. In fact, my son Hunter gave me his Buzz Lightyear one. Perhaps it is because it reminds me of the cuteness of toys…

What to watch while you wrap presents

Quirky Rom-Coms to Watch While Wrapping Presents.


Hello friends. I know, a lot of lists lately!  If you are as busy as I am this holiday season, I hope you are enjoying the quick reads. Today I wanted to share my movie picks for wrapping presents. (While your kids are IN BED. None of these are child-friendly, FYI). If you have already watched all of your favourite…

Remembering Leonard Cohen


When I was younger, a toddler even, my parents (especially my mom) would play Leonard Cohen on the stereo while she cleaned during the week. We often played his music on Sundays- our day to play loud music and read or bake. Music was our religion since my mom is agnostic and my dad is atheist (or was). I grew…

Inspired to be….


  Today I had coffee with a good friend. We were talking about how I have started to wake up every morning to work out and she had this to say, “You inspire me to…. feel inspired.” I laughed and took that as one of the greatest compliments ever. It’s great to have such intelligent and witty friends. I am…

Music You Can Work Out To


It’s Friday! I am exhausted. What a long week we had. I did a LOT of volunteering at the kid’s school, which meant my writing took a back seat (which I hate), but the kids loved it. I will post about my Children’s Festival and library adventures on Monday for you all to read, once I’ve had time to process…

Diva Cup Review


Okay girls, let’s talk about our period. Specifically, how we stop the flow. Over the years I have tried a lot of the brands of pads and tampons, even OB which comes without an applicator. Which kind of grossed me out, so it makes no sense that I would try the Diva Cup. But yet….   Every month I curse…

The Stars Winked, They Knew It Too


eight years ago. pasta and potatoes at every meal empty pockets; only food that fit my budget.  in a new city, needing a rebirth, living out of my suitcase, on the wrong side of the tracks. early mornings, up to catch the train. i watched drug deals happen and turned my face against the icy Spring wind that was trying…

October- No Longer A Depressing Month


I used to dread October. I saw it as the end of everything. October seemed like September’s dirge song. (Is dirge song a repetitive statement?) On top of that, I was always broke in October, so the planning for Halloween festivities depressed me. Every twenty year old knows that Halloween costumes aren’t free, and going out that night is going…

The Power of Being Alone


Wondering Wednesday: The Power of Being Alone. I recently had coffee with a friend who went on a month long trip and spent some of that time traveling alone. Normally an extremely social person who likes to have a friend along, she decided that this time she would do some of it on her own. She looked at landmarks, asked…
