creating home – master bathroom and closet

One of my favourite things about having to spend all of my time in my home lately is the time that I have to get little things around the house done. Of course some things sadly had to be put on hold like the bathtub that is sitting in my second bedroom instead of the…

what is bringing me joy

I have been thinking a lot about joy lately. Many of things that bring me joy in my every day life isn’t the same at the moment such as hanging out and hugging my friends and family, going out to eat at a new restaurant, wandering the mall and finding something fun to bring home,…

working from home – my tips and tricks

Like much of North America I have been working at home for the last little while. The jobs that we have previously been told couldn’t happen at home under any circumstance, seems to have been figured out, and much of the technological issues have worked themselves out. Due to a job change in the middle…

disappointment: changes and cancellations

It has been a week since I wrote my post on social distancing and wow, that week has seemed like a year. The dining room table has fully transitioned to becoming my desk, I haven’t left the house in days, and the news seems to be worse and worse every single day. It was my…

i quit

I recently did one of the scariest things that I have ever done in my life, I quit my job. Even at almost 26 years of age this is something that had never come up in my life before. All the jobs that I have had are ones with already defined end dates or I…

I have been a homeowner for just over a month now, and it is getting to the point that it is starting to really feel like home. Bit by bit the rooms are coming together and I am starting to feel like it is really mine. I knew I wanted to share my home with…

morning rhythms

I recently listened to a podcast all about the differences between routines and rhythms and while routines are thought of to be more rigid and have to be followed, rhythms are the practices we want to follow that help to focus our day and give moments of peace. My weekday and weekend mornings currently look…

expectations vs. reality

Expectation. That is such a strong word isn’t it? I am definitely guilty of having too high of expectations and last week was no exception. Last week was moving week and I had a plan. We had a full week where we could be in both places which gave us tons of time to paint…

how to have a low waste move

Moving wasn’t something I knew much about for much of my life. I spent 22 years in the same home and then in the span of less than two years I moved across Canada four times. I suddenly had to learn what it meant to pack up all my stuff and unpack it somewhere else…
