Stuck at home & my mom’s birthday

I basically wanted to bawl my eyes out when I woke up this morning. Today was a last chance at warmer, drier weather that would enable us to hit the road and visit some of our besties in Vancouver, Washington. We’d been looking forward to this trip for so long and …

Just say no

I’m more than a little bummed. Our plans to head south and watch the Super Bowl, wedding plan, attend WWE Raw and just plain old visit for the weekend are going, well, south. It’s snowing here and that’s putting a real damper on things. For one, with just a little …

January in review

Welp. One month (plus a day) into 2017. Yes, already. Sheesh. January started in my most favourite way. With Amy (and our significant others, too.) The last thing I did in 2016 was dance with Tyson who, as it turns out, LOVES (!!!) Nelly. The first thing I did in 2017 was kiss …

Things we’ll do this month: February

Or #FabFeb as I’m about to start calling it. Back in #AwesomeAugust, I committed to posting a picture sharing gratitude on social media every day. After a sick start to 2017, a stressful month at the office and the no news is good news (as in none of the news I see …

The minimalism challenge

A couple of things. Happy new year! I took January off. It was either totally accidental or entirely subconsciously deliberate. I started the year with intentions to write this and to write that. New years are sacred to me. They come to us so pristine and perfect and I find …

November in review

November was a whirlwind. (And based on how late this post is, it’s safe to say that December has carried on that way, too!) Though we were only away for seven days of it, that trip felt like it accounted for most of the month. Knowing we’d be away, I …

Things we’ll do this month: December

December! How delightful! My favourite parts of December are always the beginning and the end. I love the excitement and anticipation of the early days and I love the end of month/end of year nostalgia. Of course, Christmas is fantastic, too, but there is a quite time for a week or …

Orlando – day eight

Read about our whole trip: Orlando – Day one Orlando – Day two Orlando – Day three Orlando – Day four Orlando – Day five Orlando – Day six Orlando – Day seven Saturday, travel day. Leaving this behind. Our trip from Orlando to Vancouver was anything but direct. Nope, …

Orlando – day seven

Friday. Our last full day in Florida and we had one thing on our minds: space. Well, that and the space coast. Kevin had made arrangements to rent a car and we were taking a drive out to Kennedy Space Centre, estimated to be about one hour outside of Orlando. …

Orlando – day six

Finally, a little freedom! Day six was our first without any obligations or expectations and we were excited to get it and explore! We woke up early (for a vacation day) and we skipped a morning swim because our cab driving friend from yesterday (I’ll tell you his name. It’s …
