We are the women we have been waiting for.

Last night, Oprah Winfrey was awarded the Cecil B. de Mille Award at the Golden Globes. She is the first black woman to receive this award, and no one of any colour is more deserving in my opinion. Her speech was inspiring, motivating and thought provoking. I found myself sobbing while listening- each word like a breath…

No Words.

Have you ever made a decision on a whim? Have you seen an event on Facebook, and decided to attend it that same day? Or decided to stop at the market that you were passing to treat yourself to a solo lunch date? I am still learning the concept of self-care and what that looks…

Dark flowers and fresh baby smell

One of the most amazing days of my life. My best friend Rosey was due on May 28th and I received a text from her letting me know she was on her way to the hospital as she was having contractions. As soon as I finished up with work I headed to the hospital around…

Loved and missed animals..

Well, yesterday was quite the day. After a whirl-wind of holidays and two wonderful weddings it was great to be home for a few short hours. A girlfriend and I were off to my first “traveled” barrel race since having Pete, a horse to whom I can credit my riding skills. He was sold to…

Small Town Snaps

I know I’ve been seriously slacking on the blog front lately. Work is crazy, as I am teaching all day; then doing lesson prep in the evening. I love my job most days but I love my down time more! I was catching up with my girlfriends as I lay in bed last night and we…

Smart talk

I hate CBC! Okay, that’s not necessarily true but ugh, it’s such a bore. My husband would be so disappointed to hear me say that, even though he knows I dislike it and always beg to listen to something else during road trips. This is true when it comes to most news and politics, I…

Ignorance is Bliss

I am feeling sentimental today; thinking about moments in my life: moments that change us, moments that make us see things differently. Its too bad we don’t know it at the time.  Why can’t we know in those moments -that that will be the last time we see someone, the last time we will kiss…

Fake Bake(r)

We were over at a friends last night enjoying some tasty and not so tasty beverages -enjoying catching up. There was a cooking show on the cooking network and a friend of ours asked if I still baked. My immediate response was yes, of course. I then took a minute to think; I couldn’t think of…

Small town casual chats.

On Saturday we had a few engagements, first off we planned on going to my dear friend Sharon’s. She’s the absolute best, she took the liberty to birth twins (for me) so I can have a baby or two whenever I please -so generous. Anyways, later in the evening we went off to our last…
