Destination: Sweden and Norway

I had what many would call an idyllic childhood growing up on the family farm in southern Manitoba. Acres and acres to roam free and play. Aunts, uncles, cousins and good friends down the road. We knew everyone. And we trusted everyone. And that's the way it should be. If I ever have kids, I... Continue Reading →

Year of Joy: December

Better late than never! This pretty much sums me up. I'm late for almost everything, including writing my last Year of Joy post for 2016. But this time (and almost every time!), I have a good excuse. For the first eight days of January I was on vacation in Hawaii and then returned to work... Continue Reading →

Year of Joy: November

Looking back on November, it all seems a blur to me. It was a whirlwind month with lots of busyness at work. Once again, many things brought me joy but there are a few things that top the list.

The decision didn't come easy, but sometimes you have to take a risk and seize a new opportunity. So I'm excited to share that I will now be working with... Continue Reading →

Year of Joy: August

August is in the books, which means our short Prairie summer has come to a close. Many things brought me joy in the final month of summer. My brother's 40th birthday. I can't believe my oldest brother is now 40. Seems like just yesterday we were kids growing up on the farm. Making a pit stop... Continue Reading →
