If you don't hit it off with a guy right away on the first date, does that mean you're destined for failure? That's one of the questions asked in a really good book I'm reading right now called 'Mid-Life Ex-Wife'. The book's about a recently divorced 50 year old woman who jumps into online dating with her heart and vajayjay wide open. Ok it may not be WIDE open, but this chick is pretty much up for anything. You know those cla...

I was born on New Years Day. It’s fun to tell people this beceause I always get a look of shock and excitement over their faces, with “no way!” being the usual response. Yes, I was the first baby born at Royal Columbian Hospital in 1987 coming into the world at 5:23am. Now it seems New Year’s babies are born literally at the stroke of midnight (I swear doctors tell women to hold off on pushing)…I guess back then it wasn’t as b...

My friend Carly asked me to go to Spinco in Cloverdale a few nights ago. In case you didn't know, spin classes are all the rage right now partly due to Amy Schumer's movie "I Feel Pretty' which has a lot of spin scenes. I call the workout the "Instagram" of workouts because the contemporary studio decor and "you can do it" sayings that greet you when you enter the studios literally feel like you're in an Instagram post of a wo...

Love doesn't ask questions.
No ifs, ands, whys or buts.
It just is.

Love doesn't leave scars.
No stinging words or cold stares.
Just warmth.

Love love, in all its glory.
Seasons come, flowers die.

Despite being a pretty young blonde I was bullied quite a bit in Elementary school. Memories that still stick with me.

So, something happens when you turn 30. You all of a sudden you have back fat. In no lie at the stroke of midnight on my 30th I literally turned around and there were two bulges where no bulge had been before. I'm not talking huge pockets of lard spilling out the sides of your dress. This is what I like to refer to as "skinny girl fat". From the front everything looks good. Long and lean, no fat to see seen. However turn aroun...

This past weekend I visited Yellowknife where my boyfriend is currently working on a job site (he’s away two weeks of the month. He calls it the perfectly relationship). With this hopefully being his last month working in Yellowknife it seemed like the perfect last-ditch opportunity to cross the Great North off my travel bucket list.

The never-ending sunshine and majestic Aurora Bourealis make Yellowknife a truly beautiful plac...

So, I'm back! After an almost ten month hiatus (no I didn't go away and have a baby although that would get the rumour mill going) I am back on the blogosphere. My boyfriend Deryck was actually the one who inspired me to start writing again (I know, a guy who encourages you to bare the good, bad and the ugly of dating and life in general for all the world to read? He''s a keeper!) Truth be told the last ten months have been a...

I've been on a lot of dates. Like a lot. I don't know if that's a sign I'm too picky or just have really bad luck with men but I could write the holy bible on dating. I recently realized I've probably been on more than 25 first dates in my 15 years of dating and a good portion of those were online meet ups. It was while going down this dating memory lane that I also realized I go through the same three mental thought processes...

If you asked me a year ago where I wanted to live in the province I would answer, without, a doubt, the Interior. Powder winters, scorching summers, friendly people, affordable housing, good economy, what's not to love? However now I'm not so sure.

 My first week living in Merritt, 2014

There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing where to live. Is it close to work? Is it close to family and friends? Is it an affordable...
