June Blogger Spotlight

Welcome to my series in which I spotlight one of my followers. I’ve always had a deep fascination with people: how they became who they are, the struggles they won, and the hard lessons they learned over time. All of these scars and stories make up a person’s life. While I think it’s important to reflect on your own journey, it is also equally important to hear other voices and see diverse perspectives. In this series, the spotlighted blogger will be able to tell their story through curated questions I’ve asked of them.

The blogger I wanted to spotlight in June is someone I aspire to be. She’s a crusader for living green. What does that mean? Well, she details it so beautifully on her blog. She “firmly believes that if everyone makes just a few small changes, we can have a positive impact on the planet, the people around us, and our own wellbeing.” Her simple-living ideas have helped many of her followers (including me) focus on what truly matters beyond the material goods we can acquire in life. She has a big voice and she’s not afraid to use it! And best of all, she’s a Canadian like me! Finally, a friend who understands me when I write about the colourful behaviour of my favourite neighbours in the centre who honour and favour this very bloug blog.

Without further ado, I introduce you to Continue reading

My Year of Writing (Part 2): What I Learned

So, I wrote for a whole year (read part 1 here). This is what happened and everything I learned.

I challenged myself.

You’re never too old to challenge yourself or dust off a dormant passion of yours. One of the toughest things about being a parent to a young child is that there are no sick days, weekends, or vacations from your job as a parent. Even when you have a ‘day away,’ you’re never really disconnected. Your mind wanders, you plan ahead, you think about all the things that still have to get done and what needs to be sacrificed in order to get said things done. For instance, you could have a Continue reading

February Blogger Spotlight

Welcome to my new series in which I spotlight one of my followers. I’ve always had a deep fascination with people: how they became who they are, the struggles they won, and the hard lessons they learned over time. All of these scars and stories make up a person’s life. While I think it’s important to reflect on your own journey, it is also equally important to hear other voices and see diverse perspectives. In this series, the spotlighted blogger will be able to tell their story through curated questions I’ve asked of them.

The blogger I chose to spotlight for the month of February is definitely not new to the blogosphere. I don’t remember how I stumbled upon her page but so happy I did. I have to admit, I am pretty stoked she agreed to let me interview her. I enjoy her wit and style of writing (she makes me laugh), and I admire her ability to write about life’s mundane mishaps. Also, I kind of love her blog name! Continue reading

The Making Of

Here’s the thing- I’m not a lyricist or a singer but I love everything about music. Actually, singing karaoke in front of a group of people was once a crippling fear of mine. FACT. It kind of still is; I definitely wouldn’t be comfortable singing in public anytime soon. The closest I come to Continue reading

January Blogger Spotlight

Welcome to my new series in which I spotlight one of my followers. I’ve always had a deep fascination with people: how they became who they are, the struggles they won, and the hard lessons they learned over time. All of these scars and stories make up a person’s life. While I think it’s important to reflect on your own journey, it is also equally important to hear other voices and see diverse perspectives. In this series, the spotlighted blogger will be able to tell their story through curated questions I’ve asked of them.

When I came up with the idea for this series, I could think of only one person to start us off. In late 2020, I decided to give this blog thing another shot (of many) and Continue reading
