We spent Canada Day long weekend the same way we have the last few years, rotating between those two gorgeous views: Candle Lake and my Granny's front yard. It was a dream trip with mostly gorgeous weather, the least bugs I've ever seen at the lake, great food and company... Continue reading

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
