About me

Hullo and welcome!

I’m a 27 year-old Canadian who’s recently moved back to Western Canada after living in London, England for the last two years. I tried not to be mistaken for an American but it didn’t go very well. I made up for it by being extra kind and saying sorry repeatedly.

Three years ago, I detached myself from my helicopter parents and attempted to learn to cook for myself. Two years ago, I moved to England to further my education and learn what it’s like to be lost in a GIANT city. I may or may not have moved because I’m obsessed with the British culture, history and architecture. And the accents. Oh the accents. But I assure you that’s not the main reason I moved.

Thanks to my amazing stalking internet-searching skills, I found my now-fiancé through a friend’s blog. We met, we fell in love, we travelled, and we’re making it official next year. It’s nice to have found my life’s partner-in-crime.

I’m kind of crazy and quirky, but in an endearing kind of way. I’m very much an extrovert and I make new friends wherever I go. I enjoy learning from other people and close to the top of my list is trying different beers and wines.

I’m happy you’ve decided to follow along my life’s adventures!

Why did I start this blog?

I’m no writer, nor do I intend to make a career out of writing or communication. I’ve never been one to keep a diary or a journal and even though I have tried numerous times, writing consistently was a failed New Year’s Resolution 3 years in a row.

First, to give back. I truly enjoy reading other people’s blogs – for pleasure or for business. I hunt around for posts during down times from which I can learn from other people and uplift myself. I search for inspirational photos, quotes and stories to help me when I need it. I’m a hopeless romantic, love cute couple-y photos and most anything that will make you go “awwwwwww” (puppies included!). So I got to thinking… if I’m learning so much from reading random posts on the internet, I’m sure there are people who can benefit from my thoughts and ramblings. If I’m going to take from the internet, I may as well give back. So this is my form of giving back. You can take what you want out of this, but it’s a place for me to express my thoughts, fears, dreams and hopes. And maybe rant a little.

Second, to experiment. Read more info here.

Thanks for stopping by!
