 Hello everyone. I'm just popping in to say, I know I've been gone a long time. I started this blog and its associated Instagram as a way to take more pictures I was proud of and share my thoughts. I'm not here to make promises that I will be writing more often but it is my hope that I will be posting at least a bit more consistently.  I also want to share these pictures from one of our first snow...

Hey guys :) 

I realize I haven't been super consistent over here and I wanted to talk about that. In late March I finally started a job (!) which has been super great. However, having a job has also made me super busy. I completely failed at both my March and April daily goals and haven't even attempted one for May. Oops. I'm hoping to get back in the swing of things for June but I think my goal wi...

Hello and happy Friday! I hope everyone is enjoying a nice three day weekend. What are you up to? Anything special going on for Easter? Hope it's a fabulous one. In the meantime Nik and I are off to the States this week: spending Easter with my parents and celebrating my cousins wedding next week! Here are a few fun things for your weekend.

This photo is a throwback to last Spring and a fun little...

Happy weekend everybody. What are you all up to this weekend? Over here we're visiting with a friend in from out of town and spending time with family. Other than that it feels like it's time for a nap.

What have you been eating for supper lately? I've been slowly moving things over to my recipe box. I don't want to get in a rut! Give me your wisdom.

Being in the greenhouse all day has me loving spr...

Hello friends! Happy weekend! I don't know about you but daylight savings has me in a serious tailspin. How can one hour do so much damage? Hoping for a relaxing weekend and a nice reset on Monday. How about you? Leave a comment and let me know. I'd love to hear from you.

As part of my goal setting I've been setting seasonal goals. For our first winter in Canada: go sledding at least once. Goal acc...

Thursday was International Women's Day. The flurry of activity on Instagram got me thinking about who inspires me. I thought it would be fun, in view of March being my month of drawing, to share with you some illustrators I love, admire, and follow on Instagram. You will probably see from this list that I have a clear style I gravitate towards. I hope to be half as amazing as these artists one day...

Hello and happy Friday! What are your weekend plans? Around here we're planning to spend a hectic, errand-filled Saturday and a quiet, cozy Sunday. Hope your days are lovely! Meanwhile here are a few little fun things.

So proud of myself for keeping this plant alive all winter long. I took the above picture a few days ago and now that stalk is starting to bloom! Maybe Spring will come soon after al...

It's been forever since I did one of these! I love them though so I thought I would pop one back up here to tell you what I've been up to and see how you all are.

Here's a photo of where I am, curled on the floor in the pool of afternoon sunlight that keeps appearing and disappearing.  Currently it's a messy, multiple-cups-of-tea, slow, can't-wait-for-my-husband-to-be-home-all-weekend Friday over h...

I'm going to be honest: February's resolution was a bit of a flop. Why was reading every day so hard? I basically read every day in January! I'm feeling especially embarrassed because a friend of mine just texted me the other day to tell me that my resolution plan has inspired her to set time aside to read every day. All I can say is she is my inspiration. I may have to bring the Reading Resolutio...

February 12, 2018

I know it seems odd to be talking about resolutions in February. "Aren't resolutions solely reserved for New Years?" you ask. I should hope not. 

As I have touched on before, I love resolutions and I love New Years. Sadly, like many others, I struggle with follow-through on my grand, yearly resolutions. Right about now the most dedicated of all the resolution-ers of 2018 are petering out, except th...
