Ups and Downs

March and April were a whirlwind! In a lot of ways it felt like these two distinct months abruptly ran into each other this year. For that reason, I’ve decided to do a combined blog post covering off on the ups and the downs of what was March and April 2020. As we entered into

Fun

February was a joyful month. It revealed to me that I needed to shed my inhibitions, re-evaluate my goals and have fun! The month began with a trip to Sydney with my best friend. We had the most blissful time. We indulged in decadent meals, reflected on the years we’ve spent together, discussed [...]

Light in the dark

The start of a new year is always exciting. It presents infinite possibilities. This year, my excitement was heightened as it was also the start of a new decade. I had spent most of December planning on a fabulous beginning to 2020. I had my goals mapped out and my energy was clear. I was

Looking Back

December is one of my favourite months of the year. I love the closure that the month brings. Aside from getting ready for the festive season, I spent most of this month reflecting on the year, and in this case, the decade that was. During December, I dedicated a substantial amount of time to goal

August was an epic month! I was shoved even further out of my comfort zone and forced to put myself out there in massive ways. Each and every weekend I had an event, whether it was book related or family related, they were big! At the beginning of the month my family and I travelled

Birthdays

I love celebrating my birthday. I love turning another year older and hopefully becoming a little wiser. As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, July is a month filled with birthdays. Both my dad and I share our birthdays in July along with a number of my friends. Although I enjoy all the [...]

Reflection

Let me start this blog post with a disclaimer. I am currently nursing a newborn. I have had approximately four hours sleep in 48 hours. My four-year old daughter is having a Disney dance party in our living room at this precise moment – I have heard ‘Let  It Go’ fifteen times in a row.
