Self-Care is giving the world the best of you, instead of what’s left of you!!

Many people think I'm CRAZY when I tell them I wake up at 4am but you know what?!?! I LOVE it!! I LOVE waking up before the sunrise and watching the whole world light up, I LOVE listening to the little birdies come to the feeder for breakfast and I LOVE having some time all to myself and lovin’ on ME first thing before the CRAZY day begins. Most of all I LOVE it because I deserve time for myself AND so do you!! You deserve some time to start your day off right. Let’s face it, when ...

The art of life is to live in the present moment

I was flipping through some old files and came across this gem from one of our very first trips together. Drew and I LOVE to travel. The truth is I am not so great at staying in one place for very long 🤣🤣🤣 I LOVE to move around, expand my vision and mind, see and experience NEW things. The situation we are in right now is quite different from what we are use to but instead of focusing on what I can´t do right now, I am trying to appreciate each and every moment. We can´t always ...

Stepping Outside your Comfort Zone

This past weekend Drew and I attended a really fun and exciting workshop called Code Breakers. The days were long and packed full of information but we enjoyed it so much. The focus was on personality decoding and how to serve your customers, clients, friends, family better by speaking in their personality “code”.  So fascinating! I loved sitting and learning. I loved being organized and taking notes. I loved making connections. I loved talking and getting to know new people. I loved the fun a...

Leaving Your Career and Dreaming BIG

Leaving my teaching career was one of the hardest decisions that I have ever made!! It meant leaving EVERYTHING I knew, EVERYTHING that was comfortable, EVERYONE that I loved. Drew and I dreamed for years of travelling and working remotely. We dreamed that one day we would be able to pick-up and travel and bring work with us. Whether that be at our home in California, our home in Olds, in New Brunswick visiting family or around the globe. We just didn’t want to live tied down to one place. ...

Patience Takes Practice

Doesn't this old time saying ring true. Over the last few months I am really learning the importance of patience. Yesterday as Drew and I were cruising down the beach on our bikes I was deep in thought. Not saying much. Which is unusual for me but I was reflecting on what a gorgeous day it was. I was thinking back to all the times we wished we were living at the beach full time and now we are here. Living our dream. Looks like magic on the outside. One day we weren't here and now ...

Wherever you go, there you are

Last Sunday Drew and I spent some time with our friends watching football. We had a lovely afternoon visiting, swimming, watching the game and eating tacos. On our way home our gas light came on so we pulled into a gas station. Drew filled up and I ran inside to pay. The man at the counter was an older gentleman, probably in his 70s. He looked very tired. Not just exhausted from the day but life tired. It was a quick judgment on my part, which I know isn’t polite, but he looked like h...

How to get ALL the Thieves

Drew and I LOVE the Thieves Product Line. In fact, I am not sure how we ever lived without it. Thieves is the BEST way to achieve a toxic free household. From household cleaning to laundry to oral care, Thieves has got you covered. Once you start using Thieves products, you will quickly realize that you must have it all. It's very addicting!! There you have been pre-warned. In my opinion, it's not a bad addiction to have considering choosing toxic free products for your home will improve y...

The lows are low and the highs are high

My story this morning goes out to all my entrepreneurial spirited friends :) In this entrepreneur world I have learned that it is by far the hardest thing I have ever done. There are some great pleasures that I love but there are definitely days when I feel like throwing in the towel because it’s so darn hard. But, I gotta tell ya! What keeps me going is being able to wake up everyday, in a place that was once only a dream and “work” a business that I am so passionate about, that we create...

Don’t Stop Until You’re Proud

Last week I had a really great running week. I got a PB on my 5k time and ran 10K. I haven’t ran that far in a really long time. I was really proud of myself and started reflecting on how far I have come. How did I get to where I am today. When I talk about my running goals with others, sometimes people think I was always a runner. Just naturally good at it. Let me tell you there was nothing natural about it. When I started running I was SLOW. And I mean SLLLOOOW!!! I also could only run f...

What are Essential Oils

Essential Oils are extracted from harvested plants, herbs and trees. They can be obtained through steam distillation, cold pressing or resin tapping. So basically, THEY ARE PLANTS!!! Pure Essential Oils have more healing power than the plants themselves because they are so concentrated. They are very potent. You can use them for aromatherapy, personal care or household cleaning to enhance health benefits. CAUTION!!!!! Not all essential oils are created equality so quality is reall...
