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…

Welcome! Welcome!

Hi Guys, welcome! Welcome back, welcome to first timers, welcome! I have been wanting to come back for months but I just don’t know how to start, I feel like a lot has changed in my word since last year. Maybe I have just changed. The very best way I can describe it as I…

Christmas and long after

Ahhhh, now that Christmas is over I sit here reflecting. I’ve decided Christmas is so much better with little kidlets around. We had my nephew this Christmas and it was amazing! He made the whole day -he is so smart and inquisitive: looking and inspecting everything. We went to my parents first thing in the…

One Year Celebrations!

A whole bunch of one year celebration this month! My Husband and I just recently celebrated our one year anniversary as well as our Nephew’s first birthday! What more can a girl ask for! Life is good! 🙂 We went out of town after celebrating our nephews birthday on Saturday to go for a delicious…

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…

Trip Dominicana

Ahhh! My wonderful brother and sister in-law got married today. They chose to get married at the family cottage; one of the most beautiful and seriene places. They put so much time and effort into it and it was amazing. I can’t wait to show y’all pictures! In other news, I wanted to share a…

Wedding season! 

Well it is certainly the season for beautiful weddings. Not one, but two of my dearest friends got married this beautiful month of June. The first of the two is one of my favourite people in the whole world, a gal that stood up almost a year ago by my side while I married. She went…

Monday Brunch

I had full intentions of doing a blog post this morning. It seems that time has gotten away from me the last few days. I ended up spending my morning having brunch with wonderful friends. What more could you ask for out of a Monday! I didn’t assist at all; my wonderful husband made brunch while…

Conversations

Happy Wednesday All! My husband and I are hilarious, I don’t know that others would agree but I think we’re funny. I often wonder if we’d be thrown into an insane asylum if people could see/hear us on the daily. We often talk in accents, which my sister in-law has a love/hate feeling for. 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…

Fifty Shades of Menchies

Holy-macaroni! I went to Menchies for the first time on Monday, oh my goodness -amazing! Neither of us had ever been and lets just say I can’t wait to go back. My girlfriend Kel would be so disappointed! We also made our way around Costco, we purchased new Novafoam pillows; they are amazing! I had…
