“today is the day to follow your heart.” so said my normally dry and pragmatic capricorn horoscope this morning. isn’t that the intention for every day? or shouldn’t it be?

~ me, June 22, 2011


I’m Carly and I live outside Vancouver, BC with my partner and our two cats.

I’m a health adventurer, yes sayer and daydream believer. I (mostly) embrace change and that leads me to constantly exploring new places and trying new things. I write on real paper with coloured pens, I collect yarn and twigs and pretty things like a bird building a nest, I’m an extrovert online and a serious introvert off of it.

According to Gretchen Rubin, I am a Rebel. According to Chris Guillebeau, I am an Independent Creative. According to Cosmopolitan, I am a Carrie.

In my heart, I believe that we should do whatever we can to make every day count and that’s why the day to follow your heart seemed the perfect blog title for me. Because it’s the little things that we do every day, for our health, for our happiness, for ourselves, that make the biggest difference in our worlds and, subsequently, the bigger one we live in.

The common thread that runs through my diverse interests is wellness and in mid-2016, this blog was revamped to embrace that. Please join me in my quest to become better, stronger, happier and healthier day by day.
