FAMILY TIMES IN JASPER!

Last weekend we were incredibly lucky to have some family time together in Jasper. Ooooo, how I love it there! It’s super gorgeous and wonderful and I’m already trying to think of ways we can make it back sooner rather than later. It’s also a rare treat for the kids to see their father during daylight! Don was actually there on …

SPRING THINGS

Pashley and I have been all around lately! Though, I’ve been pedalling slow and steady in 2nd gear because I’ve been SICK. Bah. Sore throat, losing my voice and this constant ear ache (right side). I suppose the best remedy is resting, and I have been doing a lot of that, but the show must go on. I was happy …

WESTAND, WELEAD!

Ooooo, it was a busy one! For months now, I’ve been waiting for my big keynote moment at the WEStand youth leadership conference. The day finally came, and it was AWESOME!

BUSY BIKE

It’s been busy times on and off the bike! What else is new? Had a meeting at iconoclast koffiehuis, a truly wonderful gem just north of the river on 118 Street and 105 Avenue. If you’re looking to have a nice café work place downtown, this is your place. Had my kids draped all over me. Pedaling to an Apricity wrap meeting last …

Times change. Needless to say that I am digging life on two non-studed tires. And, you can see that Alice digs …

Like going swimming with the cousins. And on another occasion, having said cousins over for a sleepover. We also went to …

ONCE UPON A SPRING TIME

Finally, I get to come up for air! My committee, Apricity, has been planning a spring cocktail party at the Jasper Place branch for the last several months. Last night, we finally got to debut our work! Once Upon a Spring Time was certainly a labour of love, and each one of our committee members brought something unique to the group. No way …

20,000 STEPS A DAY (IN LONDON)

Hi Readers! I’m happy to report that I’ve been walking up a storm and my calves now have a life of their own. I didn’t realize it, but the newest update for my phone includes that health app which counts your steps. I was super impressed by myself when I did 12,000. The next day I did 17,000. Then, I …

LIFE LATELY…

Haven’t been riding as much as I’d like, but Kona and I still took off for an evening last week – So fast! Here’s a picture I stole from Portia Clark (I think) of us judges for the Skirts A Fire media launch. We were judging several skirts designed by artists, made out of recycled materials. They were really beautiful this year, …
