Love Day 2015

While central and eastern Canada are in a deep freeze, we are blessed with 5 above and sunshine. Shayne bought be a sexy orchid and I spent the day hiking around the trails here. I saw an eagle and got really muddy!

A Photo A Day

Once a year I like to do an Instagram/Twitter photo challenge (this being year 2). I chose to do one put on by YYOGA because it just seemed like they had fun words, the Fall time is a pretty season to capture life and when I lived in Vancouver I LOVED practicing yoga there. Why should you hop on the photo challenge train?

*Each day there is a new word that inspires you to capture a moment of your day and share it with your network.

*It makes you think about what you see and experience differently.

*It allows you to connect with others who are participating in the challenge.

*You can exhibit a side of your personally that may be suppressed.

*You can be as creative as you want.

*If you commit, it allows you to hold yourself accountable.

*You can include words with your images and this may inspire you to be passionate, creative and witty.

*It’s free.

*It’s fun.

*Sometimes, there is a prize.

Click on the below image to see what inspires me each day (note: this links to YYOGA’s Facebook page because I couldn’t find this on their website:

Why I’m In Love With My Birthday!

August 8th. My birthday.

This is a day that I love. Most people don’t “love” their birthdays or even celebrate them.

During elementary school Mrs. Maltz (our principal) would announce everyones birthday, daily. Being a summer baby, I never got this luxury and it always hurt my feelings. Growing up I got to celebrate my birthday at the most magical place on Earth: BB Camp. I was surrounded by close friends and nature. It was magical.

So, my birthday parties were usually in June or September, when everyone was back in school. This wasn’t my real  birthday so I wasn’t super stoked.

As I got older, my birthday was an excuse for everyone to get together, catchup and have a good time (in the summer). It allows for celebration and an annual catchup.  August 8th isn’t a day to celebrate my birth but a reason to have a good time.  Oh, I also love presents.

Today, I am 28. 365 days until my next birthday!

Good job Sharon and Leonard.

How do you celebrate your birthday?

Summer is here and I’m learning to bike (better), fish and other Pemberton activities. Follow me on my journey. Check back every Wednesday (ish) to see what I have been up to.

The One Time I’ll Ever Do That

What is “that?” Bungee Jumping. Crazy. Terrifying. Fun. Scary. Painful (after).

I’m glad I did it. It was nuts. I also took along a GoPro.

If you are watching from a computer, look at this:

If you are checking this out on a mobile device, this version is for you:

Also, for some reason, I think bungee should be spelled with a “j”: “bunjee.” I think that if you have it in you, go and jump.

Lake Life

This is Birkenhead Lake and I want a cabin here.

It’s 30 minutes from Pemberton and very breathtaking!

So, should I have a commuter home in Pemberton and a weekend home here? I think so! Danielle thinks so (she knows best…check out her website). Dreams do come true! If you could have a cabin on any lake, which lake would it be?
