The Back to School Blues

Anyone else out there have the back to school blues?  Usually, by the time that August/September comes around, I'm ready to start school. I'm excited to get back into it. All of that is usually squashed the first day of school, but at least before school starts, I'm excited.

Sometimes, I just feel... happy! And I'm not going to apologise for it. I like to consider myself a pretty happy person. My husband will attest to the fact that when I get excited, I get very excited.

How to Have an Attitude of Gratitude

On our very worst days, I will look at my husband and ask him "What are you thankful for?" This is to give us perspective. We have so many things to be thankful for, yet I often find myself focusing on the negative. Sometimes, life doesn't go as planned and it seems like everything is falling apart but that doesn't mean that we don't have positive aspects of our lives. When we change our perspective and see some of the positive aspects of our lives, the negative things don't seem so bad.

Most of the time it was just junk, and I always thought, if they don’t want their junk… Continue reading Why I Go to Garage Sales

How to Make Iced Coffee At Home

I, like most white girls, are addicted to coffee. In the summer I feel like I need an iced coffee every single day. If you don't have iced coffee that day, is it even a summer day? In Canada, there is this magical place called Tim Horton's. Growing up, I went there at least once a week. I say at least because that is the very least that we went there. When I was home with my family on any given evening we would probably go to Tim Horton's, every Saturday we would go there for lunch, on Sunday we went to the Wendy's Tim Horton's restaurant.

My First Post Ever

When I told others that I was thinking of starting a blog, I was mostly met with support but also a fair amount of scepticism. That scepticism sometimes made me doubt whether I should start this project at all, but I know now that I need to take that negativity and use to as fuel to prove others wrong.
