Today has been one of those days. It’s been a day when I’ve been called to challenge myself in uncomfortable but meaningful ways. It’s been a day when, although my emotions are running high and at the surface, I have to put on my many hats as a mom, military spouse and a support personContinue reading “Reflections & Resilience”

Showing Up for You
The thing about being a woman, and specifically a woman in the middle of a pandemic, is that the motivation to take care of ones self is particularly draining. I don’t say that statement lightly or without some “field research” to back it up. As a woman who takes pride in honouring myself with selfContinue reading “Showing Up for You”
When are we going “home”?
When you are a military family, you get a lot of questions, especially from your own children, as they start to recognize that their lives are different than the lives of their peers.

Music, makes the people come together…yeah!

PJs at 545pm? Yes, please!
So the thing about being a family where one parent can go away for weeks and months at a time, is that even in the days that are doing well on the home front, the team is missing a key player. When you’re on a hockey team, for example, and you’re on the top line,Continue reading “PJs at 545pm? Yes, please!”
As I sit here, about to embark on a new decade, I’m so proud of the woman I became in my 30’s! I became a mom to three of the most beautiful babies on the planet. I survived gut wrenching loss and grief. I became fierce in my pursuit of self care and in doingContinue reading “Birthdays Eve”
That Delicate Balance
I have been on this major kick to be my “best self” before I turn Forty in December! And man oh man, the pressure I have been putting on myself is UNREAL! Now, don’t get me wrong, I think putting a little pressure on yourself to rev up your drive and desire to accomplish goalsContinue reading “That Delicate Balance”
This is the Life
Last night, after dinner, my hubby and I took the kids out for a walk/bike ride. It was a gorgeous evening …still sunny, a cool breeze to take the heat off after a scorcher of a day, and smiles on everyone faces. There was a moment where I was standing in our driveway watching myContinue reading “This is the Life”
