A Year Ago Today My Life Changed Forever

mom

It's still so surreal. It feels like just yesterday that my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was so quick, so aggressive, so painful, so hard to watch. I have never experienced anything like it, and I hope to never have to again. Every single day I flashback to those few weeks in the hospital where I watched the most important woman in my life fade away. She was so strong through it all.  After she saw and spoke with her grandbabies, it was clear she just let go. I distinctly remember Continue Reading...

Why I’d Like To #CaptureCalgary Next Time I #Travel

#CalgaryTourism

Growing up in Western Canada has so many benefits.  The variety of terrain and diverse people across the provinces can make for an awesome adventure . There are quite a few cities in Western Canada that I have yet to explore and one of those cities is Calgary, Alberta. I've only been to Calgary a few times and it was always work-related so I've never gotten a chance to truly experience everything the city has to offer. To tell you the truth, I even have family and friends in Calgary! Yup! Continue Reading...

Create A Positive Effect In Your Life With #KarmaWellness #DrinkKarma

What comes to your mind when I say the words Vitamin Water?

Karma Wellness Water is a truly enlightened product, born out of the idea that what goes around comes around. A product based on the simple belief that if you do something positive—for others, or for yourself—you’ll get something positive back in return. Yes, we are still talking about water!

Club Regent Is More Than Just A Casino #Winnipeg #ExploreMB

#ExploreMB

I grew up in a lil suburb in Winnipeg called Transcona. Home of the pink flamingo! I remember when Regent Ave, the main strip, was a 4 lane dirt road and there was a drive-in theatre, but I also remember when Transcona hit the big time and was the chosen location for the Club Regent Casino. Club Regent was so snazzy when it was first built, very colourful and modern for its time. When you first walked in you felt as if you were in another world! I remember many of my friends worked at the Continue Reading...

Jumpstart the School Year with Pedals for Kids #JSPedal2014

#JSPedal2014

Back to school has officially begun and not only are my kids excited to get back to school, they are excited to get back to sports! For the past 5 years my girls have been involved in extracurricular athletic activities; one in basketball, one in soccer. I know whenever I've bumped into other parents, we always joked about the fact that we were thankful our kids weren't successful in hockey. Apparently, as kids move up levels in hockey the money required grows astronomically as well, Continue Reading...

The Little Mermaid at Rainbow Stage Is A Must See #Winnipeg #rbstage

Ariel

Winnipeg is so fortunate to have Canada's longest surviving outdoor musical theatre, Rainbow Stage! It's no secret that I come from a musical family. Many years ago, 2003 I believe, my sister Lisa performed in her first role at Rainbow Stage. She was only a part of the ensemble of Footloose but when she sang "Let's Hear It For The Boy", everyone took notice.  I have been to every show my sister has been in for the past 11 years, and musical theatre has never been so exciting! Rainbow Stage Continue Reading...
