So much has happened in the last year or so while I was not writing.

Including, but not limited to:

  1. I have been having more than a casual flirtation with Veganism (but I admit to cheating on Vegan with her beautiful friend Vegetarian);
  2. I have made several job changes in quick succession, all of them positive and exciting – and scary;
  3. I am attempting to get a small business off the ground;
  4. I have attempted to learn how to juggle divorced parenting from the point of view of being a daughter with two fathers – one who died, one who has not been a huge part of my life (through no fault of his own); and as a mother who is helping her daughter navigate her relationship with her own estranged father;
  5. I have discovered the healing properties of marijuana(!);
  6. and last, but not least, I became a Grandma. 

The pregnancy, birth and month or so since Natalie came into my life has changed (yet again) how I view the world and the people I share it with.  I have a renewed sense of optimism.  Love.

I am hoping this list starts a conversation and leads me to the right place to start sharing one or two of these stories.

In the meantime, I am checking back in with all of YOU!  I have been spending an hour or so each evening crying, laughing, and engrossed in your adventures.

Blogworld, you’ve been missed~


The 2010 Present List

I love American Apparel basic tshirts and leggings:






There are a few Gap staples that I cannot live without too!










Not usually in love with jewels but my favourite figure skater has designed a pendant for Birks.  So lovely:











Living and doggie walking in Vancouver, rain boots are a must.  Of course I love Hunters but they are way overpriced:







I am also really liking this new camera put out by Olympus:









For my lovely iMac:

A wireless mouse and keyboard!
