I haven't written anything on this blog for a few weeks. I can't remember the last time I actually worked out for more than one day a week. Those are two facts that it almost pains me to actually admit. These aren't the only areas in my life that I've been slacking either. I haven't… Continue reading Self-Care September
I'm not much of a people person. It's not that I don't like people, it's that I'm an introvert who gets mentally, emotionally and physically exhausted from high amounts of social interaction.

I can't help but wonder how we are already into the first week of a new year. It feels like it was just yesterday that Ian and I were sitting at our favourite restaurant ringing in 2015, and now here we are, one year later. I've already shared my bucket list for 2016 with you, and I'm… Continue reading Kicking off the New Year
