I am so not a warm weather reader. Atleast that's what I thought until looking up last years Spring book report and seeing that I managed to fly through 8 novels last Spring, compared to this year's measly 3! I blame this on the fact that this year I have... Continue reading

Thank you so much Leigh! I literally used to not be able to imagine running a 10k either myself, and definitely not in that kind of time. Not until 3 years ago! Which isn't even that long! Now I know that's it's totally possible, for me and for YOU :D

I arrived home from work four nights before my birthday last month to my husband and a house full of friends! It was such a great surprise. I consider myself rather impossible to surprise, and have never had a surprise party, because I always know what's going on and always... Continue reading

We were rained/snowed out of our May Long camping plans this weekend (no surprises there really, May long weekend has notoriously bad weather - we have just managed to luck out the past few years and had made somewhat of a tradition of camping in Jasper Park over May Long).... Continue reading

Well, she led the way at the exact moment this photo was taken anyways. Most of the time she hiked she was sandwiched in between my husband, mother-in-law... Continue reading

This is how I was greeted at home the morning of my birthday. When I ran up to the house tired and sweaty, my husband and daughter were sitting on lawn chairs on the front lawn holding that GO MOM sign and I just about died (from cuteness, although the... Continue reading

Sunday's race wasn't actually a Mothers Day specific race, like there were a lot of males and non-mom racers too of course because it's the Brian Harms memorial race in town, but it is held on Mothers Day Sunday and all the mom's are handed a long stem flower after... Continue reading
