TWO MONTH WHAT?!

Hi Readers, I’m still here! I’ve been wearing sparkly outfits. The first one up there is DKNY for the Top 40 party. The one down below is Todoruk for EDSS. Been riding the kids to school (they’re getting really heavy). Early fall, Lisa came out to have an epic day on the water. The weather was unseasonably warm so we put on swim things and partied …

LOBSTER LOVERS!

The wonderful people at Big Brothers Big Sisters sent me these awesome photos from last year’s Lobster Lover’s Gala – I really feel as though I rocked that costume:) I’ve been a Big Sister mentor for the last year or so. It’s a lot of fun and very educational! Wanna hear more about it? You should join us at the gala on November 6th. …

B2S

Every August I get this email, letting me know that it’s time to renew my domain here at G&B. Even though I’m set up for auto renew, I still get the reminder email. For the past few years, every time this email arrives, I consider retiring the ‘ol blog. Those who like my little photos can easily find me on …

FINAL STRETCH

And just like that, it’s the middle of August. After the last post, I finally started to really decompress and feel like it was okay to relax. I don’t go through life feeling intense anxiety or stress… but, I must hold the products of all my endeavours somewhere on a cellular level. My body is always waiting to DO something …

TIME FLIES!

How has it become the middle of July?! It feels like yesterday, that the Works Gala wrapped. I immediately embarked on some self-care (getting more sleep, seeing my acupuncturist, doing my annual with the doctor) and banking a bunch of time at the lake. Even with all the restorative measures, I only now feel like I am beginning to decompress. …

FINAL STRETCH.

 I feel like I am SLOWLY limping towards the year-end finish line. One more teach. One more sleep. One more event. And soooo tired! Regardless, we move forward. Like last weekend when the kids and I took the train downtown for a rooftop party at Manasc Isaac. There was some teaching, some BBQ, and some early father’s day dinner last Saturday… …

EDMONTON!

In some ways, certain things have died down, but other delightful things have taken up my time. Edmonton has been having the most fabulous weather (albeit a little dry) so we’ve been enjoying tons of time outdoors! Perfect too, since Edmonton has been hosting lots of out of town guests. I love that people have gotten the opportunity to see …

LOVE MY LADIES

Love all these ladies in my life! My daughter, mommy, niece, sister-in-law, and sister! I’m sure they’re all impressed by my locker room photo antics at the Edmonton Eskimos Women’s Dinner. Later that week, The Works Gala co-chairs, Sydney and Sarah were representing at AGA’s Art on the Block. If you don’t have your Works Gala tickets yet, go here and GET …

ALICE TURNS 3!

We’ve been through labour together; drooling, diapers, teething, more “phases” than I can count.. and we’re just getting started. Happy Birthday, Alice! My sweet 99th percentile baby is growing up so fast! She was never a tiny thing. She was one of those babies with gigantic thigh rolls and enormous cheeks. See? That first summer we had her, we took …
