Things I Learnt in 30 (+4) Years

So today is my 34th Birthday and although I really don't think of myself as old, sometimes in some groups I am the oldest. Scary thought but take for example when I hang out with my three kids I out-age them easily, or when I am working at the farm I am "the old gal", …

My wish for my kids… an “ordinary” life.

All my life I have been searching and dreaming. I wanted the best clothes, more money, success in a career and movement. I love learning and wanted to constantly be growing. But instead of focusing on the now I was busy caught up in future plans and dreams. Today I realized that without even trying …

Spring Market at the Farm

I am super honoured and also pretty excited to be working together with some pretty inspiring and enthusiastic people on this years First Annual Spring Market at the Farm.

Create a life you don’t need a vacation from.

So in all honesty I have what might appear to some as a fairly relaxing life, but here is thing about relaxation it is different for everyone. I may not have to be at a paying job everyday and that might seem relaxing but I still have commitments and I still have doubts or moments …

Mind, Body & Soul…

I have always loved to consider myself spiritual, but I am not sure that I was doing intentional activity to feed my soul. I have lots of beliefs on how to take time for me and to make sure mind, body and soul are all being looked after, but beliefs are different than action. My …

MIA- Don’t come looking, I want to stay missing forever!

So, for those who don’t know we decided to finish off our very last baby's first year earth side with a 30 day vacation to Maui.  The cool thing is my roommate*/ babydate/ common law partner was eligible to take Parental Leave so we decided why not!  Plus 2017 he worked so hard at his …

Resolutions or Reflections???

New Years are like Birthdays to me. A perfect time reflect on how the last year has been and what I want from the upcoming year. I typically love reflecting, and maybe it has to with the fact that as I get older I feel like each year gets better and better. I am more …

Lots planned for 2018, Bring on a New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I am not sure about you but I love the idea of a fresh slate and a new start, nothing is better than reflecting on the last year and all that you have (or have not) done... and then feeling like you have a whole year to work with. It's inspiring and …
