An Ode to my Boobies

Oh Boobies… You came out of nowhere, one day in Grade 10. For a tom-boy like me, I had no idea what to do with you. I liked running, horse back riding, soccer…all sports that involved movement. LOTS of movement. Despite my ignorance to you, you stayed firm. Nor did I know what to do…

The Heaviest 5km…

Today was the heaviest run I’ve ever done. 5km on flat terrain…. But I nearly didn’t get there. Or at least, HEAVY is the perfect word for how it felt from the word go. Heavy because I was exhausted. Nights of weeks of months of now FOUR years of sleep deprivation. From tantrums. Food throwing.…

I live in this time-warped world, and you might, too. I call it “the Baby Time Warp”.  The minutes which flow into hours into days into weeks into YEARS…and suddenly, your baby is turning four. FOUR YEARS OLD.  She has conversations with you. She argues.  She is a little PERSON in every single way, asserting…

I’m just like you…

I get it. 100%. This is not my usual blogpost.  This is different. This is a real look at who I am…not the insta photos filtering out perfection. Nothing about healthy, really…except that I choose to be balanced. I am a BLEND of the chaos around me and how I choose to love and live.…

High Waisted Tights & why you should try them!

So I’ll be the first to admit.  When I started seeing ‘high waisted’ anything had come back into fashion, my first thought was not overly positive.  As a rather short statured woman, the ‘high waist’ look was not a look that I thought would do anything for me other than provide a wedgie… That was…
