As soon as the last shiny Christmas bauble comes down and gets packed away, I feel a familiar dullness start to creep in. It's nothing I can't handle or push aside enough to get through the day and do the things I need to, but it unsettles me enough that... Continue reading

Fifteen years is a marital milestone, isn't it? And I feel like this day (and you) deserve the most exquisite love letter. But the holidays can really take you down when you have four young kids. And more than anything, I want to crawl between the flannel sheets I gave... Continue reading

A couple of months ago, I received an email alert from the Toronto Symphony Orchestra about their Young People's Concerts. And I let myself think about our schedule around the time of their Christmas show (frightening), and I went online and bought a pair of tickets anyway. I have a... Continue reading

There's still time to take a grown up trip with them. Do it Neers. You'll be so glad.
Thank you, Rea xo
Its definitely a more relaxing experience than a doctors office isnt it?

I was wary of that too, Rea. I went in cautiously...but so much of what she said about my situation rang true. I think with any health care provider, you have to feel like youre on the same page and Ive found a good fit so far. xo

I was telling you guys about my thyroid and the many ways it has been messing with me. But now that I've had my first naturopath visit, I am beginning to understand it was actually me who was messing with it. The flare up I'm having is literally a flare—my... Continue reading

Yes, get them onto your wall Karen. We gave one to my parents with their grandchildren and it makes me smile every time I step into their foyer and see it displayed. They look great! Good luck :)
I like to support Canadian companies, too. Good luck and thanks so much for entering!
yes, I lost quite a bit of weight with my first flare up because I had no idea what it was. This time around I recognized the symptoms before that happened. Ive heard adding seaweed to our diets can help boost function. Worth a try xo

No, you are amazing. I cant tell you how much it means to me when my readers take the time to write a note about what one of my posts made them feel or how it impacted them. It means everything to me. Thank you so much. Im so glad for the baby of our family, too. xo

{Photo credit: liftingtones.com} The thyroid is a trickster. When it's not working as it should be, it throws out all sorts of symptoms that make you think it's something else. In my case, an overactive thyroid makes me feel like I have superpowers, right up until the moment I fly... Continue reading
