Comments Off on It All Happens at Once

Personal posts are my least favorite to write. My hands get sweaty when I start to type. I wonder how the person reading it is going to digest the words. Will it be absorbed the way that I intended? There is often a constant battle in my head of whether to even write at all. I want to write. So… here I am, putting the letters down and getting out of my non personal post rut. I remind myself that I am doing it for myself. Something to look back on, reflect on, and to be grateful and thankful for.

Lately there have been a lot of changes. Some of the changes are so exciting to me while others are likely starting to grow me some grey hairs. There have been three big changes lately that have me feeling good, exhausted, tired, excited, nervous, and one hundred other emotions.

  1. We have to move:

    A month or two ago we found out that we have to move as our landlords are selling. Then we found out last week that they might have a buyer and we can stay. Feeling all the weird emotions about this. We would like to stay, but we also feel weird about not knowing for sure if we will be moving or not.

  2. I am NOT going back to work:

    This is exciting (mostly) as I am committing to focusing solely on my blog and graphic design. I say mostly because I do love the people that I worked with. At the start of the month I signed on with an agency that is going to be helping me with my sponsored posts giving me more time for everything else. My stomach turns as I write this out, even though I have been working away on the blog the past months actually saying I am not going back feels so surreal. A big thank you to all of you who read and support me.

  3. Evelyn is almost One!

    I honestly cannot even believe a year has past (almost). I am starting to plan her first birthday and like everyone of my kids birthday I go back and forth from “something small” to “let’s just go all out”. I am pretty sure the later is going to happen, because I just love planning parties, decorating and creating beautiful events. She still has no teeth and isn’t walking yet, two milestones I am so curious if she will reach before her birthday or not. I’m happy either way, because I feel like once both of those come, we will have a toddler on our hands people.

I am feeling so blessed in this season of life. For everything we have, even if we have to give up the place that we are currently living. A place that I never thought I would ever not want to move out of. It was about a week before we found out that we had to move that I started to feel grateful for it. I have been missing our old home (that we sold) so much… I even accidentally drove “home” to it the other day. When we found out that it was time to move I laughed and said, “Well I guess God was teaching me a lesson about gratefulness there.”

Been feeling so grateful. Among all the other feelings, gratefulness is the feeling that best describes this season.

  • When I started working out around the house more Ezra asked me, “Why are you doing those exercises all the time now?” and I responded by saying, “Because I want to be stronger.” That’s what inspired this photo and my “strong” pose.

For the next couple of months, I have partnered with @planetfitnessca and will be sharing more about what I am doing to take care of myself and bring those home workouts to the gym while I check out their Abbotsford location.

P.S. did you know that a PF Black Card membership allows you to bring a friend for a free workout every time you go in?? Comment below if you want to be
my friend and join me! #seriously

  • Don’t be fooled by our matching outfits and their cute faces, the majority of my photos looked like photo two and three.
  • We’ve been under the weather (mainly the kids 🤒 ) for what seems like forrrreverrrr!! We bundled up anyways and took in some of this ❄️ snow and even though it’s cold AF and our 🐕 puppy might be the biggest wimp of all it was definitely worth it.
  • I like pink drinks and I can not lie. ⠀

I also love my SodaStream! I am so excited to share that I'll be creating more deliciousness with @sodastreamcanada this year as they asked me to join their #streamteam for the second year. Last year I learnt so much about how they are changing the world with bubbles, reducing waste and turning so many pop drinkers into sparkling water lovers. Best part is, you use tap water from your home so whenever you want to make bubbly water (as my kids say) it's so easy! #partner⠀

  • Would it be weird if I said we drove around specifically looking for this door? #thatpinkdoor #butnot
  • #AD Our TV is usually set up in our garage's man cave but during the winter months it makes its way into the living room. We love having cozy family movie nights and enjoying some Orville Redenbacher Extra Buttery popcorn. It's butter-ly delicious! Bonus: it's made with no artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives. What's your favourite family movie right now? @orvillecanada #originalpopcorn #OrvilleCanada Photo: @juliechristinephotography
