Don't Settle.

"The only way to do great work is to love what you do. 
If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. 
Don't settle. 
As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it."

-Steve Jobs

"We do not receive wisdom, we must
discover it for ourselves, after a 
journey through the 
wilderness which no one else can make
for us, which no one can
spare us..."

- Marcel Proust

Take A Moment.

Happy Sunday!

I hope this finds you doing well :)

Woah, the heat! Am I right? Here in Manitoba, it has been 30+ degrees (I am actually missing winter). This hot and very dry weather has caused some serious damage to parts of the prairies. Fires blazing in Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Colombia. It's been said that many of the fires may continue burning up to the first snowfall! We have seen some effects from the fires here, like smoke filled skies which brings on poor air quality. And as of yesterday, many troops, including Mark, were called in and quickly sent to Sask. to help out.

With all this being said, I hope that those of you who read this take a moment to pray for those who have had to leave their homes and those who are out fighting the blazes that are engulfing many parts of this country.

Take care.

To adventure.

July is in full-swing now and I could not be happier!

This has always been a big month for me in the birthday-department. One of those being Mark's birthday, July 8th. And he is turning the big 2-5 (old man)! 

Crazy to think I met this goofy guy when he was just a little 19 year old, haha (I'm old, too..)!

Along with the exciting birthday celebrations (there are about 26354749 more birthdays in my family), we are going to be heading back to the East Coast at the end of the month! It's been a long 6 months without that crisp ocean air and we are anxiously counting down the days (20 days!) until we are back on The Rock.

This summer is going to be one for the books. I am looking forward to what adventures we get into, obstacles we encounter, and memories that we are going to make.

The True North Strong and Free.

Happy Canada Day to all of my fellow Canadians!

Today, we come together not as Nova Scotians, Newfoundlanders, East Coast or West. 

We come together as Canadians! 

We come together as a family to celebrate our love and appreciation for this great nation that we are blessed to call our home. 

I am so proud and blessed to be a Canadian.
