The Floral Showcase

Find yourself a small place where you can go to sit and be at peace. This isn't possible every day but every once in a while I am able to pop over to the Floral Showcase in Niagara Falls (because I have a season pass) and just sit in nature and enjoy the day. I thought for today's blog post I would share some of it over the last few months with you...

If you follow this blog you know I've written in the past about my struggle to decide whether to have kids or not. What you might not know is when I was 19 I was told I would never have children naturally and the odds of me having one with medical interventions like IVF were very low. So at 19, I started to adjust myself and try to come to terms wi...

If you follow me  on social media you know, I love my birthday. Some years I celebrate for weeks surrounding my birthday. I do this for a number of reasons (which I will talk about in a minute) and I think you should too.   Here's why….. Your birthday is meant to be a celebration of your life. A celebration of how much better the world is...

We're now 11 days into 2019 and I've talked to a lot of people so far this year who are hoping that 2019 will be a better year than 2018 was. It's made me wonder how many people have no reason to get out of bed in the morning? For those of you who have been a part of this blog for a while, you know that in June of 2015 I felt the same way and I cou...

2018 was such a crazy year for me that I really don't know how to put into words all the things that have happened. I started the year off living with friends of mine who had just found out there were going to have twins! For a couple who struggled with fertility treatments to have children, I was overwhelmed and excited for them. The year held a l...

With being sick for the last few weeks I haven't done much of anything. I haven't gone out a whole lot as I've been too sick to bother getting out of bed. I did, however, go out a few nights ago. Not for long but just long enough for a quick drive to Niagara Falls to check out the Christmas Light displays as I'm hoping to do a Thursday night l...

For those of you who follow our podcast, you will know that this week I interviewed Beth from The Collectionears Club on YouTube about this awesome idea she has to bring together a bunch of Disney Christmas trees from around the world. This is Beth. She started The Collectionears Club as a way to help showcase her love of Disney while also showcasi...

  Do you ever stop in the middle of doing something to take a minute to appreciate what is going on around you? Have you ever found yourself looking at a sunrise or sunset with a wonderful sense of completeness? Do you look at things like Niagara Falls or The Grand Canyon with awe and wonder? I do! I find myself more and more, as I get older, ...

For those of you who have followed this blog for a while, you know that every year while I'm living in Niagara I love to take part in a charity event held in Niagara Falls. This "Sleep Cheap" event is a fundraiser held just for people who live locally (you have to prove your Niagara address to take part) and the funds all go to local charities...

It's something we heard all the time when we were kids. "You are what you eat". We also heard a lot of "eat more meat" and "eat more grains". There wasn't much of a mixed message when I was a kid. It was pretty simple. Follow the Canada food guide and you will be healthy. Of course, this wasn't true but I had no way of knowing that as a kid. Back t...
