you + me

 

I am in love with you + me. The duo of Alecia Moore (aka P!nk) and Dallas Green is an unlikely pairing on paper, but when you hear their voices and see them together, it is perfect. I’ve always really liked P!nk and her voice has so much soul, so pairing it with Dallas Greens soft, honest sound was something that seems meant to be.

It’s been a while since I was really excited about an album to come out. I can’t wait to hear what else they’ve got.

September 11, 2014

It’s been 13 years since the tragedy of 9/11. This is a day that is burned into our minds and I will never forget where I was, what I was doing and how I felt when I watched the second plane hit the towers. Our lives changed in an instant, but we came together to support each other and opened our homes and our hearts to stranded travellers. The bravest of all were the first responders, many of whom lost their lives as well.

Please take a moment today to reach out to your loved ones. Tell them how much they mean to you and then take a moment of silence for the victims of this disaster.

Today we are all American in our hearts. Lest we never forget.

Show & Tell: Sept 26/14

I don’t have anything witty to write for you today but I want to get a Show & Tell up to give myself a bit of a break from life. It’s been super busy lately which is great, but it doesn’t give me enough time to really take a step back, relax and enjoy it all. I started a Yoga Challenge earlier this month and was doing really well the first two weeks, then craziness took over and I’ve only done it once since. The other night I was mega stressed and I took some time for myself to do the 20 minute Yoga With Adrienne video and it completely changed my mood.

Take time for yourself this weekend. Get outside, smell the last of the flower and tell the people around you how much they mean to you. Life is a gift and we are lucky to be alive.

Mawlynnong isn’t like the rest of India, or the rest of the world for that matter. Tucked into the jungle of the northeast Indian state of Meghalaya, on the border of Bangladesh, the village is home to the indigenous Khasi people. Theirs is a matrilineal society, where women inherit land, children take their mothers’ names, and men marry into their wives’ family homes. The setting is also unique: lush, and so well-cared for, tourists across India visit to marvel at the lack of trash.”

  • I recently found the Farmer’s Almanac online and have been reading up on the coming seasons. Here’s their Canadian Fall Forecast.
  • I have yet to get Jason to do yoga with me – but these 10 Awesome Yoga Poses for Men are where we can start!
  • The science is clear: we have to keep two-thirds of fossil fuels in the ground to avoid catastrophic climate change, so why are we looking for more? We need to start keeping oil in the ground, and the Amazon is a great place to start.Please watch the video below and then head on over to sign the petition to Call for an end to Amazon oil drilling!

The best thing a woman can have…

Liz left this for me on my desk on her last day. I look at it and feel like I can take over the world.

I tried to post this yesterday, but for some reason I couldn’t. And after having lunch with Casie - it needs to be said that having good friends are a close second.
