Hello Fresh!

I was really excited when I met someone from Hello Fresh Canada at Veg Expo a few weeks ago. I have loved the idea of having meal prep delivered since the first time I’d heard of it, but as far as I’m aware, its availability in my area is only …

Allergic!

Not me, Kevin. It’s unfortunate. And what’s even more unfortunate is that we don’t even know what he’s allergic to. Stay with me. Several weeks back – it was the day before Mother’s Day, in fact – we were walking across town to pick up a gift for my mom. …

Growing a green thumb: beets

Here’s an update on our garden space this summer: just when our massive balcony was being overtaken by very happy tomato plants (among other plants as well) of five different varieties (Black Krim, Green Zebra, Old German, Yellow Brandywine which is no longer on the site so not linkable ­čÖü …

Three cheers for: RunWESTIN

Maybe you’ve heard of this, maybe you haven’t. I just caught wind of it a few weeks ago and then I learned much more while we were at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Seattle last weekend. Did you know that when you stay at a Westin Hotel you can actually …

The power in passwords

As you probably already know, we went down to Seattle for this year’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series event on the weekend. Originally, we’d been contemplating the half marathon, but then decided that we didn’t think we would be ready after an injury and an unplanned running hiatus over the …

Shout out to my dad

I didn’t get to write about him yesterday because, well, life. Instead, we were in deep recovery from a whirlwind trip and then we went to hang out with him in person. We watched the US Open (that’s a huge gift from me to him – I hate golf) while …

´╗┐Seattle

So, here’s the truth: Seattle hasn’t always been my favourite city. It still isn’t my favourite, but it’s grown on me over the past year or so and since my last three visits have been really, really good. Last year, we took a good, old-fashioned road trip. The first two …

Writing is great, but living is better

Someday I’ll have a high ceilinged stairwell where I’ll hang mixed and matched chandeliers. For today, I had life, laughter, love AND: A road trip from our house to Seattle then back to Bothell for the night A fantastic time at our first ever Rock ‘n Roll Marathon Health Expo …
