Beyond The Food #2

November 19, 2014

It’s Tuesday night and I’ve found myself with some time to spare. The average person might binge-watch the latest on Netflix or hit da clubs (who AM I?) but instead I’m choosing to blog. Looks like someone needs a vacation…OH WAIT…2 days.

Truth-be-told, life’s been about as close to a vacation as it could possibly get without actually being on one. I’m finally getting better at separating work from play (besides tonight) and disconnecting from the time-suck that is social media. It’s meant giving up on some of the things I love, namely reading my beloved blogs and engaging in this amazing community but sometimes reality is too sweet to waste your hours away living virtually.

After the wake-up call that was our 48 hour trip to Minnesota, I’ve been trying to live life to the fullest. I’m doing my best to capture these beautiful moments as they unfold. In looking back on these images I realize how much I am embracing my version of “living the dream”. Feeling grateful.

The perks of my best friend living 1/2 mile from C’s parents. Big ups to the incredible Brooke Alexandra Photography for capturing this moment.


Just before you take the plunge. The greatest moment of the day…

What’s good in your hood? Fill me in!

    Love that this is all things simple and amazing. Some people look for those grand moments to remember, when really…life is about the small stuff. I’m so happy to see that you’ve gotten to more of the ‘living in the moment’; I definitely want to work towards that, as well as being able to balance this blog as well!

    This makes me want to do a handstand.

    I’m glad you’re getting your work and life balance. That’s one of the most important life lessons to learn. You master that, and the rest is easy peasy.

    Excuse me while I go try to stand on my hands now.

    P.S. If I get injured, you’re taking care of me.

    My boyfriend and me had our 4th anniversary this week!! It’s crazy how fast zone seems to fly sometimes. Unfortunately we couldn’t celebrate together because he’s still in the states (and I’m not) 🙁
    The only really good thing this week was my lunch today (pancakes ) and the first Christmas flavour tea I had this year, roibos tea with apple cinnamon almond. YUM. I love Christmas teas sooo much, they’re so comforting!
