It’s so funny how the weather can really influence how productive you are. Typically, every May long weekend is the kick off to summer, however with below seasonal temperatures this year I’m sure many green thumb enthusiasts have opted to postpone gardening just a little longer. In the mean time, my apartment looks barren and is desperately in need of some greenery!
I was out running this weekend and noticed the buds on the trees, birds chirping and pockets of flowers sprouting from the ground! It’s a beautiful time of year when we can finally put our winter coats away and embrace the warm weather ahead.

Christmas always creeps up on me so fast every year! Before I know it, I’m one of those battling the crowds getting my last minute shopping done. Last year I was sifting through the M&Ms bin at the Bulk Barn collecting only the red and green because the Christmas M&M bin was empty! This year things will be different as we are headed to Tampa, Florida to be with the whole family! There’s going to be 10 of us flying out on Christmas Eve! Talk about deja vu to Home Alone!
