Give it All You Have

Give it All You Have

So to say that it’s been a while since I’ve posted would be an understatement. Writing just sort of fell out of my routine, or maybe it got pushed out by other things, and I haven’t really thought that much about it in recent months. Out of the blue last week though two totally separate people … Continue reading

Flying Before the Wind

Flying Before the Wind

Today is one of those wonderfully blustery days when you can’t help but be reminded of the force of the world around you. One of those days that is truly inspiring. It’s been far, far too long since I felt the energy or inspiration to sit down and write anything here. So, today, thank you … Continue reading

Just Call Me Phil!

Just Call Me Phil!

For all you lovely people who follow my blog (when I actually manage to write it), my apologies for being rather absent lately. I feel like a groundhog, rubbing the sleep from my eyes and tentatively poking my head out of my little hole in the earth, to see if it’s time to come on … Continue reading

The Friday Five – Home Sweet Home!

The Friday Five – Home Sweet Home!

I would imagine it’s pretty obvious by now that I am dyed-in-the-wool traveller. There is nothing quite like the feeling of exploring a new place -the sights, smells, sounds that make up a very different world. Such a rush! Having said that though, I’m also a bit of a home-body. I love where I live … Continue reading

The Friday Five – Monkeys are Evil… Didn’t You know?

The Friday Five – Monkeys are Evil… Didn’t You know?

I’m feeling a little irreverent today… and a lot mentally exhausted. So, with no further a do, today’s topic for the Friday Five – Monkeys are the evil, didn’t you know? I have travelled enough now through the southern hemisphere to be very familiar with these uniquely horrifying creatures. They are smart, amoral, curious and … Continue reading

La Vie En Rose

La Vie En Rose

It’s a bit cliche, sure, but I really can’t believe how quickly the last year has flown by! So much has happened -became a Mrs., travelled the world, started a new career- and I feel like it all began on July 21, 2012. One year ago today was one of the most amazing days of … Continue reading

Some Time with Chihuly

Some Time with Chihuly

Well hello again! Sorry for the short absence everyone. Life has been a wee bit busy lately and unfortunately the blog ended up taking a back seat for a while. I was going to get back on track with another Friday Five today but a couple weekends ago I spent some time in Seattle and … Continue reading

The Friday Five – Blooms Around the World

The Friday Five – Blooms Around the World

One of my favourite ways to dream up new blog posts is to go back through my photos, looking for images that evoke a particular story, emotion or, frankly, just make me smile. I’m no nature photographer but I can never resist snapping a shot of a tree, plant or bloom that strikes me. When … Continue reading

The Saturday, Friday Five – The Dream List

The Saturday, Friday Five – The Dream List

So clearly, today is Saturday, not Friday! Oops. My apologies for the delayed post. I’m afraid life just got in the way yesterday. Once work was wrapped up I was off to catch up with two great girlfriends… needless to say I was in no shape to be writing a blog when I finally got … Continue reading
