Let Them Be Little

Well, it’s been a really long time since I’ve sat down to write anything. So long that I have managed to grow and deliver a tiny human. On September 20th we welcomed a baby boy into our family, Holden has taken over as CEO of our lives. Overall, he has been pretty great to work for. I’m approaching one month of motherhood and hot damn, what a ride. I write this from my couch nest with my little babe snuggled in. It sounds sweet, and it is, but it’s also a full on hostage situation #sendchips. Don’t get me...

Highlight Real

Overshare Alert: February was a really tough month for me. I wasn’t feeling great, my motivation was at an all time low, my routine was off (non existent), I was immobilized. I wish I could share the secret to how I climbed out, but I can’t. There isn’t one. What I know is I rode the waves, I have a partner who rides them with me and I tried very hard to be patient with myself. The voice in my head is not nice in times like this. It shoulds all over me. It questions my decisions. It asks...

We lego’d the shit out of the weekend. I recognized that I need more...

Be Your True North.

I’m not sure when I lost myself, but I don’t believe I started to “find myself” until the summer of 2015. I know, how cliché. But I remember the moment vividly. I was lost. I was spiraling. I was imperfect. And I didn’t know what to do. My inner world was crumbling and as a result, my outer world was too. I had spent a lifetime as a hard wired achievement-bot. Seeking. Hustling. Perfecting. My armour was shiny, vulnerability was buried and my masks were always ready to be worn. My best relationships were always kept at an arms...

Becoming Minimalish.

How do you want to feel? This is the question that I started 2017 off with. Based on the teachings of Danielle LaPorte, I identified my 3 Core Desired Feelings of 2017 as Nourished. Clarity. Growth. In all that I do, I need to feel at least one of these feelings. Something that shocks many people about me is that I am a hardcore homebody and introvert. My batteries are recharged in the quiet. I am a chronic nester. And because of this, in order to feel how I want to feel, I need my home to feel in order. I...
