  • The Day it All Began and Then Some…Loud and Proud

    Have you ever finally said something you have internally been saying for ages, OUT LOUD? Do you remember your body heating up? Tears or goosebumps possibly? Maybe you were shaking with fear or vibrating with joy? That moment you asked for a raise at work. The time you asked your spouse to spend the rest of your lives together or possibly when you finally said goodbye to a toxic relationship.

  • Giving Up To-do Lists and Making Homemade Elderflower Infused Vodka by Kristin Price

    Originally posted on our friend Kristin Price’s blog at www.KristinPrice.ca I have a confession: I’m a recovering workaholic. It’s so easy for me to get caught in my to-do list. It never ends. There’s always something to do. And it’s always something *really* important.

  • Tips for Traveling with Kids (and Keeping Your Sanity)

    Repurposed from Christie’s original blog dated August 2013: There’s no question I adore travel. As a young child I recall getting excited every time we went anywhere. Whether it be piling a crew of us into the big jumbo jet van for a distant swim meet, packing our entire family up for a California road trip, or the odd airplane ride to Hawaii, I was always eager for the adventure ahead. And still am to this day! Fortunately my children have adopted my eagerness for travel. Little C & Little B are rockstar travel companions. They are great listeners, independent, polite, confident, well-behaved and patient. From an early age they…
