Words, Captured & Kept

Months ago my niece was here excitedly looking through some of my old totes filled with books, movies, souvenirs, photo albums, cards, letters and other mementos that I have never organised into a proper home. We spent a whole afternoon reading letters to each other. Most of them […]

Positive Manifestation

Last night I dreamed I was attending a business lunch with my old work family. It was more of a boozy lunch at one of the pubs. Nearly three hours of food, drinks, and bouncing ideas off one another. I miss those kinds of lunches sometimes. Just last […]

I binge watched a recent addition to Netflix called Good Girls. It’s an American series starring Christina Hendricks (Mad Men, Hap & Leonard), Retta (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Parks & Recreation), and Mae Whitman (Parenthood, Arrested Development) as three suburban mothers who decide to take matters into their […]

Vegan-iversay

On January 30th I celebrated one full year of eating a plant-based diet and about six months of being vegan. I say that because in the beginning it was just about weight loss and health for me, I hadn’t made the connection to the animals. I wasn’t consciously […]
