Sunshine and Summer Nights

The weather here can be temperamental sometimes and the winters are long. They are cold, and dark and really take a toll on me by the time they end. We get thunder storms that come through and blacken the skies. They destroy our crops and homes with large hail. Sometimes I wonder why I like... Continue Reading →

Happy Fathers Day

It's Fathers Day here in Canada. It's a day that we take to celebrate all of the amazing men in our lives that choose to take on one of life's most difficult tasks.... Raising the next generation.

Don’t let your demons scare you

Time for some real talk. This will be a long post!

Sunny Saturday (NZD #4)

I've been running for a while now, and before this whole mess hit, I was tossing around the idea of maybe working towards running a 10k race this summer. Now that that's out of the...

No More Zero Days…. Day 1

May you live every day of your life.― Jonathan Swift As I mentioned in my previous post, I have been kind of avoiding this whole blogging thing for the last few weeks.
