Today has a been a really great day for two main reasons.

Happy 2013! – Goals for the year

It's officially 2013. Does anyone else feel like it came really quickly?? For me, 2012 went by in a wonderful blur, culminating in a great holiday season with family and friends.

Holiday Favourite Things & Hope for Tomorrow

Apparently the world is going to end at 3am tomorrow morning, and it occurred to me that I haven't written anything in a while.

Mexico Bound, Waiting in Calgary

It’s 2:45 am and I’m in Calgary airport; valiantly trying to stay awake before my 6am flight so I can sleep on the plane to Puerto Vallarta. Finally. It’s time for my sunny vacation in one of my absolute favourite places to go, Nuevo Vallarta. Sean is now alone on cat/housesitting duty until Wednesday. The …
