Gift

I’ve been given some pretty incredible presents over my almost 40 years of living.  From the one-of-a-kind drawings and creations my kids have made for Father’s Day to big ticket items like my kayak or experiences such as chocolate tasting school (Yes, there’s such a thing and it’s pretty geeked-out fun!) to tiny gestures of […]

Run on home

Some people never leave home. I don’t mean hermits who literally never take a step out the front door, but I mean many many people who choose to live, grow, and die in the same community their entire life. I respect them.

Full spectrum mornings

Running in the morning makes for full and energetic days. The colours of sunrise help paint a colourful day. The palette of an early morning run warms the soul.

When I run the oceanside roads around Kingsburg and Lunenburg my synapses fire to unite my […]

This time of year the options are increasing by the day creating even more opportunity to consume richly green and fresh produce. And it all comes at a time when I need it most. […]

Magic of place

I loved living in old town Lunenburg. It is such an incredible community with decadently rich history, gorgeous geography, and people who seem to collectively share a sense that we are more than neighbours but are extended family. We sold our sweet old historic home in town and moved to the exact opposite: an eco-friendly […]

Finding New Roads

So, we are moving out of our beloved home in Lunenburg and heading just outside of town to land atop a seaside hill for the next 4 months.  And while the distance from our current home to our new temporary one is only 20 minutes by car along the twisty coastal roads, it proposes a […]
