Eco-friendly, Environmentally friendly, Organic, Sustainable, Earth friendly, Eco-conscious…there are certainly no shortage of “marketable” terms out there for it. There really is no avoiding the… Read more

  • The Confusion and Chaos behind Minimalism

    July 13, 2019 by

    Betcha that title caught your attention? Confusion? Chaos?…..Minimalism? Not words we would normally associate with one another, right?

  • You are enough (without all the extra)

    June 25, 2019 by

    Let me repeat that- YOU are enough, just as you are. Now, let that sink in for a minute. You don’t need that lipstick to make you feel better. You don’t need to say Yes to whatever is asked of you. You don’t owe anyone anything. Most importantly of all just be you, do not… Read more

    May 9, 2019 by

    I’ve always dreamed of traveling the world. Unfortunately, it would seem, life always got in the way.

(Unless you count the times I spent what money I had returning to Newfoundland to visit… Read more

  • DIY: Tree stump side table

    April 12, 2019 by

    Most of my DIY projects are a two person job as they often involve power tools. I’m not allowed (according to the Beard) to use most power tools unless there is “adult” supervision. Something about me being legally blind and clumsy… However, this DIY I did all by myself and I am pretty chuffed with… Read more

  • The power of a nap (aka The soft-reset)

    April 4, 2019 by

    It’s no secret, I love me a nap. I’ve always been that way and I am sure I always will be. There is nothing better than tucking under a blanket and having nap on a cold afternoon while the snow falls outside. Or a nap after a really intense Mountain bike ride (fresh air mixed… Read more
