One Year Ago…

Hi guys, So today, August. 16th, marks one year since I started this little blog of mine.  Oh boy do I remember that day.  I was in the downstairs basement of the Starbucks that I worked at  – all cold and wet from numerous rain leaks. Probably feeling pretty down trodden, as that place was seriously getting me down in those last days that I was working there. Looking all glamorous in my sexy green apron and…

Week In Review: And I Did It.

This last week suurreee reminded me a lot of this one (which feels both like yesterday and five years ago at once). That crazy week when I was packing up my little apartment in Toronto to head HOME for the summer…. boxes all over the place, to do lists coming out my arse, feeling all sorts of crazy as I ate sauerkraut from a jar on my couch. Ringing any bells? Oh the fond memories.  I…

Thinking Out Loud: End of Summer Anxiety and Flying Away

Hi friends, It’s been forever since I’ve come here with a traditional, uncensored mind-dump, but I think this week especially could really use a good unloading of mind junk. So – I’m taking advantage of Amanda’s weekly link up and doing some major Thinking Out Loud.  First on the radar: Anxiety My anxiety has been pretty through the roof this week.  On monday I mentioned…

What I Ate Wednesday: Lessons from the Kitchen

Hi all.  Happy Wednesday! Let’s just get to some straight up WIAW fun, no? A pretty random day of eats, complete with some random foodie commentary.  Thanks to Arman, Laura and Jenn for being our weekly hosts  Breakfast: It’s my last chance to get to all my items on that summer foodie bucketlist, so I’m checking off the last few things I know I can squeeze into my last week…

Week In Review: Fighting the Feelings and the Count Down Begins

Finding out today was Sunday was definitely a… surprise. You know something’s off when you nearly forget to write your favorite link up post. As cliche as it is, I’m still going to say it: “Where did this week go?” I wish I felt this way because my week was all sorts of productive and fun, but really, I just have no idea where this week went… or what I did…

A New Kind of Message: From Me To You

Friends, I thought I’d be brave and share a different kind of post with you today….   May this be for all of you. Because you are all warriors.    “Character,” by Sheena Grobb     “May your body be strong Drawn from strength of character…”   Love, Cora   &nbsp…

WIAW: The Steps I HAVE made

When looking over my summer thus far, it could be very easy to slip into a self deprecating mindset. I have not made the strides or steps that I had initially thought I’d make in my recovery. And to that, yes, I am disappointed in myself. But more than disappointed, I guess I can say I am humbled and accepting of how obviously hard this work is, and that I no doubt set too lofty…

Vegan Sweet Potato Date Muffins

These vegan sweet potato date muffins have been a favorite of mine for years. Wholesome and filling, yet delectably sweet and moist using whole grains and minimal ingredients. They combine the dynamite combination of sweet potatoes and dates which will be sure to make your next breakfast or snack a real sweet treat.  So there’s this vegan take out style restaurant in Toronto called Urban Herbivore. It’s been one of my favorites…

Week In Review: How Camping Soothes The Soul

It’s really fascinating.  Just like when I returned from my weekend at the Folk Festival – where I camped and spent 24/7 outside in the fresh air – I have once again experienced the profound shift in inner thought and feeling that arises after I’ve spent time outdoors.  Last week was the week of camping. FINALLY I got out into the woods. I’m not feeling guilty for not having gotten around…
