A Week of Celebration: My Brother’s Wedding

Hello there! I am now back and writing from my Toronto home, but if you’d had caught me two days ago, my desk would have looked a little more like this… home I spent last week at home with family to celebrate my brother’s wedding, which ended up being a week long celebration it seems. We aren’t even Ukrainian, but boy did I get a taste of what those “three days weddings…

Week In Review: The Links and Resources Edition

It just so happened that a lot of what I did last week involved links, so I’m taking that as an opportunity to share some recent things I’ve been using or enjoying with you.  I still see all these things as accomplishments. I see doing anything that is either new, something that has been on your to do list, something that you learned, or anything that benefits your soul in the self care…

Week In Review: Coffeeshop Living, Flowers and Sun

Last week I… No idea what I’m doing? Go visit Meg and see what all the rage is about.  Baked. For the first time in so many weeks. It’s not that I havn’t wanted to but a) I want to clear my freezer out of ALL oldies before stuffing it with newbies b) I’ve been needing to put my time elsewhere and c) I am going through this weird…

Summer In Review: “The Things I Did” Edition

This is officially the WEEK OF REVIEWS. And yes, I did plan it this way.  As summer has now officially (though not “technically”) come to an end, I feel it is important to pay tribute to everything I did and everything I accomplished. And most importantly, to all the moments that made me happy. This way I can look back and remember, “hey… it was a really good summer.” On…

My Trip To Scotland

And I’m back.  Just like that. After almost four months spent at home and then two weeks touring Scotland, I am back in Toronto. On my own. In my own little apartment. Taking myself to my cafes for my morning coffee and writing.  I have a lot of feelings going on right now. But rather than try and process them all at once, I’d like to just take this time to talk about Scotland…

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…

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…

Week In Review: Calming Down The Crazy

Wait. This week is over? Did it even… happen?   I’m feeling a bit.. off my rocker right now, to say it kindly.   Ok I’m feeling a little crazy.   There have been so many changes this past week and any sense of routine I had established has been flipped on its back side. I mean I’m sitting here drinking liqueur. I never drink straight liqueur, let alone from…

Week In Review: Shifting Thoughts and Figuring Out the Feels

Oh hi, friends.  It feels like its been a while. Not noticeable from your end, per-say, but more so just because I’ve been far less active with my own blog reading and commenting and writing, so I’m feeling more distanced. But hey, that was the deal.  I don’t really know how my week was. And that probably sums up a lot of my current thinking… “I don&#8217…
