Many of you may have noticed that I have me M.I.A. If you read my July blog post We’re on the Move Again|Moving with the Tides to Halifax then you know that we’ve left Toronto behind for another adventure–we’re heading back to the east coast and to my home province this time: Nova Scotia. I haven’t lived in Nova Scotia since I graduated high school some 15 years ago and I’m ecstatic to make Nova Scotia my home once again. We are moving to our FOURTH city in less than 12 months and with this new transition, I have been consumed with the move and all that it involves as you would expect, especially when relocating to a new province. Although I am not actively posting here on the blog, I am regularly posting on social media: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest . If you want to stay up to date with what’s going on in my life reach out to me on social media as I would love to hear from you. Continue reading
My mother recently shared a saying with me she saw online (even before we heard the news): “Advice from the ocean: be SHORE of yourself, come out of your SHELL, take time to COAST, avoid PIER pressure, SEA life’s beauty, don’t get TIDE down, MAKE WAVES “, and it couldn’t be more true! We are coasting, seeing life’s beauty, and making waves along the way! Looks like we are meant be living back on the OCEAN. Well, as you probably expected, we are on the move again! Surprised? I’m not! I’m moving to my fourth city in under 12 months. The joys of being a pilot wife; everyday is an adventure! We have been transferred to…
If you’ve been following my social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest) then you may have noticed the pictures I posted doing yoga poses all over the Maritimes and northern Ontario this fall. With fall in full swing, I’m preparing for the winter to come. My 10 days of yoga challenge helped me to calm the mind, relax the body, and warm the heart in preparation for the coming winter season. From flying as far north to the Hudson Bay or walking along the Atlantic Ocean in Nova Scotia, my fall season brought me to incredible places in eastern Canada and in Ontario’s northern region. What are your favourite fall memories?
Yesterday’s, guess this turquoise gem is none other than…Carter’s Beach in Port Mouton, Nova Scotia, Canada! Would you have expected this turquoise gem to be located in Canada? Let alone Nova Scotia? It’s not only the Caribbean and tropical destinations that have fine white sandy beaches. Yet this white sand beach is lined by evergreens, not palm trees. The water may be colder up here in the Atlantic Ocean, but this particular beach is still pretty TURQUOISE. Continue reading
My happy place is the beach. I am in my element if by the sea. No matter how rotten of a day I’ve just had, if I make my way to the ocean I know I’ll be alright. My heart has always belonged to the east coast of Canada, and maybe that’s partly because its my home. Even after visiting 32 countries around the world and putting my toes in the sands of countless beaches, I’m still partial to Canada’s east coast beaches. I would prefer if the waters were a bit more turquoise, that palm trees lined the coast, and that the temperatures were a lot more tropical, but my heart and soul belongs to Atlantic Canada’s beaches, especially the ones in southern Nova Scotia.

For Thanksgiving weekend, I had the opportunity to travel to southern Nova Scotia for the long weekend. The fall colours were bright, vibrant, and the maple leaves glistened in the sunlight. For early October, the weather has been warmer than pervious years and I’m welcoming the warmth and sunlight on my skin. I’ll prolong fall’s typical cold and frost covered mornings for as long as I can. As much as I love the fall colours, I know what the beautiful red, yellow, and orange leaves mean—that winter is coming. As you know by now, I’m a summer baby all the way. A sun worshiper as they’re called (just like my mommy). Hence why I chased the sun last year and skipped the Canadian winter and headed to Australia in January. Now I am back to experiencing the beauty of the changing seasons. I witnessed eastern Canada’s summer turn to fall, and soon fall will turn to winter. Continue reading
