As I sit here drafting this post in my favorite orange and yellow Roots sweatshirt (picked up for a mere $5.99 at our Value Village) I realize that Summer is over and my Spirit and I are fully immersed in the magic of Autumn. Life almost feels simple. I feel like I can breathe again. My thoughts are not just… Read more →
We hit the beach today. Well, sorta. Emily is still in her cast (tucked neatly behind Daddy) so it didn’t seem fair that we go in the water when she wasn’t able to but we sure did have a great morning. Only about 30 minutes away, Port Stanley, ON, has a beautiful beach that stretches for miles. We dipped our… Read more →
I don’t even know where to start! I’m still on Cloud Nine. Last nite I went to Susannah Conway‘s Book Signing/Tour in Toronto and it was nothing short of magical. As a family, we spent the day in downtown Toronto shopping and people gawking and then we headed back to Markham, to the hotel, so that I could ready. Yes,… Read more →
We are on holidays this week and we have managed to get a new kitchen floor down, drive to Toronto to drop our teen at the airport so she could go back to Timmins for her BF’s Sweet 16, buy the paint for my soon-to-be studio and make some plans for the Fall. It is another beautiful day here so… Read more →
Last Saturday we trekked back to Niagara Falls for a family day trip to Marineland. We had lots of fun despite the almost 40 degree, very sunny day! I got a ton of shots and the kids have some brand new memories. Here are some of my faves from the day: What are you doing this summer for your holidays?… Read more →
London has so many neat places to visit. I came across The Circle – Women’s Centre for Spirituality, Activism and the Earth in one of my online searches the other nite and knew that I had to visit the Labyrinth that a group of women had built. The information in italics is right from their site. It is a magical… Read more →
I have been devouring Soul Whispers II by Denise Linn. It is a compilation of stories written by graduates of her 28 Day Soul Coaching Program and it is such a great read. As someone who has been on a journey (holistically speaking) for almost 13 years now, I can totally relate to the stories that are being shared. Stories… Read more →
Repeat after me: ‘Deep, profound serenity is expanding my life!’ Do what matters and release the rest to find peace, grace and stillness. Clear internal and external clutter. ~excerpted from Soul Whispers II Have a joy-filled weekend! You deserve it.
How cute are these? These toads have surfaced a few times during the digging for our pool and I finally got out with my camera and captured them!
We spent Saturday in Niagara Falls. We woke up that morning and the weather was beautiful so we decided to head out on a little day trip. We’re only about 1 1/2 hours away so I barely had time to finish my coffee and we were there! I took 100+ pictures between my Canon 7D and my iPhone – the… Read more →
Last nite I snuck into Chapters to get a bird reference book. I also veered by the photography section only to see that ‘Instant Love’ by Susannah Conway, Jennifer Altman and Amanda Gilligan was finally on the shelves! I have an extensive vintage, toy, digital and Polaroid collection of cameras. They are, besides my kids, my pride and joy. I’ve… Read more →
Eeeek! I couldn’t wait to share this with you. This nest came with the house. I’ve photographed it numerous times and tonight I hit the motherload! I noticed some fuzzy little heads poking out of the nest while heading inside after our evening stroll. I grabbed my 75-300 mm and here’s what came next: Mama Bird keeping a very watchful… Read more →

Oops! I missed my post for Day 5 so I’m putting it together with Day 6. We are still doing really well. My hubby is down 6 lbs! My weight is about the same-joys of being 5 3″ is that my weight doesn’t fluctuate that much unless I do something drastic. We’re not doing this for weight loss though, we’re… Read more →
It’s Day 4. I’m definitely having leg cramps from the caffeine withdrawal and I broke down last nite before bed and took some Tylenol. I was having a hard time getting comfortable and didn’t see the point in suffering. I woke up still achy but thanks to the forum I know that I’m not the only one experiencing this symptom….

It’s Day 3. My husband went back to work today so eating wasn’t quite as exciting. I really enjoyed being in the kitchen with him over the weekend prepping our meals. When I’m home alone with the kids during the day I am so busy with them I tend to forget to eat until supper. I did manage to eat… Read more →
