AirBnB has my heart. Not quite G’s. But I’m working on it. He complies every once in a while. But if he had it his way, we’d stay in hotels and never have to interact with other people. This is confusing because every time we have lived with other people, he’s WAY chattier…

on ferry rides that lead to pizza.

The island can sometimes feel like a pilgrimage. Well, at least on the weekend – it’s almost impossible to spontaneously hop on a ferry and hope that you’ll be there in a couple of hours. We have missed many ferries and have fallen asleep in our cars waiting to get…

the really good things.

  I have been feeling mentally fatigued lately. On Friday night, I couldn’t even pick a flavour for frozen yogurt and so we left.. (Is this a sick joke?) Decision fatigue may be a more accurate diagnosis.. And I’ve been beating myself up about it because G and I went to…

all things rhubarb.

Growing up in Dubai meant that we never knew rhubarb existed. No one spoke of it and so we had no idea all the tarty goodness we were missing out on. I remember visiting BC for the first time when I was 14. I was on an evening walk with…

all about the puff

On April 27, 2016, Posted by , in Uncategorized, With No Comments

I always have a box of puff pastry in my freezer. I’ve never attempted to make it from scratch. I’ve watched many tutorials and sure I’d love to do that someday. But the truth is, I may never get around to it, because this way of life is real good to me….

rest in power.

It’s been a weird week. {Image via imgur} His royal badness, Prince is gone. I have to admit; I don’t know all his music well. But there are about 5 songs that can come on the radio at any time of day and I will seat-dance my face off. Kissy noises…

Ottawa {ed. //003}

  “Ottawa is conservative and boring.” Poor Ottawa gets a bad rep. And I feel personally responsible for this. After our first trip there, I quickly came to the conclusion that it was a sleepy town. I assumed this mostly because both times we’ve been there, it was for Easter weekend (which…

This was our second time in Ottawa. We were there two years ago, also for the Nationals. It was better this time around. Mostly because we knew what we wanted to do and got right to it. But all the planning in the world won’t save you from the sneaky weather…

Ottawa {ed. //001}

G and I took his senior improv team to Ottawa last week for Nationals. Seven teenagers between the ages of 15 and 17. Not seven regular ol’ teenagers. 7 quirky, kind, introspective, humble little humans. Most senior teams are made up of mostly grade 12’s and a sprinkle of grade 11’s but…

West Seattle for two.

*I’m interrupting the radio silence* Its been about two years since I blogged. I didn’t plan on going mute. No real decision was made. ..It just suddenly happened. Maybe I needed to be silent? And also needed to re-evaluate why I was blogging in the first place. The last two…
