My Bucket List


I was doing a Google search the other day and came across an inspirational person doing very interesting things. Danny Dover. A few years ago, Danny crafted a long list of things he’d like to accomplish not only in this life, but specifically by May 25, 2017. In so doing he took control of his life, and gave it purpose. Talk about mindful living.

On reading Danny’s list and watching his TED Talk, I decided to jot down some of my yet-unfulfilled dreams. I’ve been fortunate to have done many of the things that lots of people have on their bucket list, but here are some of my items…
  1. Road trip on Route 66
  2. Visit Antarctica
  3. Volunteer at an orphanage in Africa
  4. Publish a photography book 
  5. Get my motorcycle license
  6. Cycle across country, from coast to coast
  7. Be in a flash mob
  8. Learn sign language
  9. Learn Spanish
  10. Visit Chernobyl

Do you have a wish list? What's on it?

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.

What a Twit!

Over the past three years that I’ve been on Twitter, I’ve “met” tons of interesting people around the world who are doing cool things, have interesting ideas, are funny and sometimes/often even have similar interests to mine.
Twitter allows you to “favourite” tweets, bookmarking them for easy future reference.  Since many of my closest friends aren’t on Twitter, I wanted to take this opportunity to share some of my favourites - favourites because they are insightful, funny, hopeful or all of the above. Hopefully they make you take pause, laugh, or reflect.
There is a Top 5 (in no particular order), then some of my other faces. Enjoy!
