keeping going friends. you CAN do it!!!

i’m just in tears with this story.  watch the video near the end of the page.

keeping going friends.  determination, optimism, perseverance.  you CAN do it!!!



everybody’s workin’ for the weekend…

it keeps dawning on me that with my new job i will no longer have to work weekends and holidays and i may very well have the whole summer off….


the list of things to do this summer is getting so big i have to get them written down so i can remember them all.

 – golfing – note: buy glove and golf shoes

– camping – 3, possibly 4, weekends already booked! Bon Echo, Osler, Arrowhead and Algonquin

 – garage saling! – nothing better than buy other people’s old junk!

– farmers markets – i can finally be a vendor if i wanted with my wreaths and initials but just the idea that i can go to the large market in the city beside us on saturday mornings is enough for me at the moment.

– sleeping in!  – no explanation needed

– festivals – we live beside a city with a great waterfront area and EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND in the summer they have a new festival.  jazz, craft beer and BBQ, aboriginal festival, savour simcoe etc, etc…

– beach days!

– weekends with my brother and his family

 – niagara wine weekends

 – trips over the border




when the dog bites, when the bee stings

when we have unimaginable heartache in our lives it hard to think of anything good.

i have been focusing on seeing all the good and remembering that i did have a fulfilling, happy life before trying for a baby.

my happiness

– walks with my tucky-bear (my dog) – he has a bounce in his step and i swear a smile on his face when he’s out “exploring”.  he roots down his nose and storms through the tall grass and my heart swells because his happiness is so genuine.

– hanging out with my girlfriends that i’ve had since public school.  we have grown up and at times grown apart but we always grow back together.  we talk about anything, everything, nothing. it’s a time to figure out life and realize we have nothing figured out and learn to except that we never will! hahaha

– taking photographs.   i love taking photos.  especially instagram photos 🙂  i love to see what people are doing, where they are, where they are heading.  i love seeing their photos of food! i have a friend that is an up and coming Canadian chef. his food is wild! pig heads and lamb bellies… don’t know if i could ever eat it hahaha but he’s doing incredible things with food and i love to see it. 

– nature.  it’s everywhere. it’s bigger than we will ever be and half the time we don’t even see it.  i always take time to see it.
