Spent a great day with Finn, Gideon, Max, Jason and Harley on the couch, in front of the fireplace. Hope you had a great weekend!
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.

- Hanging With The Girl-Kings Of One Of The World’s Only Matriarchies
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.”

- 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!
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.
I’m standing at the TTC stop at King and University, waiting for a streetcar to be empty enough to let more passengers on. Instead of being frustrated, I’m thinking about last Wed night when my sailor picked me up from work, at the foot of Simcoe.
It’s the little things that count in life. I’m lucky to have someone who would go out of their way to do something sweet.
It definitely beat standing on a packed streetcar for the ride home.
I miss you. I haven’t had time to write in way too long. Luckily it’s because I am kicking butt at work (7:24pm and I’m the only one still here) and life in general. I promise I will get to all the posts that are sitting in your drafts folder and that we will be back together soon enough. You’re the best little blog I’ve ever had and I can’t wait to share all the crazy stories and some super awesome news.
Here is a work selfie for you.
