On the Move

So I moved last week. I had been looking for a new place since the Fall so when I finally found a place I could see myself living, not only was my agent relieved, but I was really ready to turn the page on this new chapter of my life. 

Don’t get me wrong. I loved my place and being a short 10-minute walk to work was pretty sweet. But as with most things in life, with time I aspired to more. After all, it had been five years since my last move. So with a pretty specific wish list, area(s) and budget in mind, I set on the task of finding my new home. 

Anyone who has bought a property knows how emotional it can be. And how difficult to qualify that intangible something that makes you fall in love with a place. After months of searching, I landed in a fun part of Toronto full of restaurants, stores, bikes, and as I like to say, tons of personality. There is nothing like a change in routine to recharge your batteries and renew your outlook on life. Since moving in, there has been a new great discovery each day – whether that be a neighbourhood gem, my gorgeous neighbor (!), awesome gym equipment, a super nice walk to work...and lots more.

And though the closing was short, the timing could not be better with the warm weather just beginning. I am looking forward to lots of dinner parties and bbq’s. I hope you’ll be part of making my place a home. Stay tuned for your invite. 

Just beware. There may be a box or two to unpack while you’re here.

10 simple joys

Recently "Chewbacca Mom" reminded the world that life is about the "simple joys". Think about it - more of  life is about the everyday moments than the sexy milestones. Though I've written a lot here about gratitude, this got me reflecting yet again on the simple joys I am thankful for. This is my list right now, though in no way complete.
1. Snuggling under a cozy duvet 2. That first sip of freshly brewed coffee in the morning 3. Hugging my partner tightly 4. Smiling to strangers and getting smiles back 5. Taking in a beautiful skyline view 6. Mastering a new skill that was unknown to me 7. Being awakened by the chirping birds outside my window each morning 8. Watching a scary movie and jumping with fright (this is a guilty pleasure, I'll admit) 9. Grocery shopping with my partner (yes I know, weird but true - we are talking simple!) 10. Camping adventures (s'mores included ;))
What are your simple joys?

What a Twit: Part IV

I am an avid Tweeter and take to sharing my favourite tweets with my blog followers every three or four months. This year started off with a bang and I have more tweets than usual...lots of them funny, some inspirational, and others informative. Enjoy!

@TheLoveStories Never regret something that once made you smile.
@TravelBloggr Dear Twitter spell check, Pancetta is not "pancreas." Just thought you should know. Learn some foodie Italian please.

I'm not Thinking about It

Meditation. Eastern philosophers have long touted its great benefits. Westerners attempt it with varying levels of success.
According to Wikipedia, meditation is “any form of a family of practices in which practitioners train their minds or self-induce a mode of consciousness to realize some benefit.”
