in pursuit of more

living with just a little less

In the midst of a busy life, many of us can too easily succumb to feelings of pressure ( I know I can). Pressure to perform. Pressure to please. Pressure to be who we want to be. Maybe even pressure to be what we think others want us to be. Staying cool and calm amongst all these pressures can be tough. But it's the only way…

Have you laughed today?! I mean, really laughed? The side-splitting, joyful, exhaustion and tear inducing laughter that used to get us sent to the hallways in high school? I love laughing. Laughter makes me happy. We try to laugh a lot. But sometimes I need to lighten up. I've just returned from a (super) busy time of travel for work. Being on the road and working takes a…

Welcome to another springy post! I've got to tell you (though it's still a little cool), it's pretty sweet here when the sun is out! The patio furniture is coming out this weekend and the new garden topsoil has (finally) settled.

Friends kind of make…

Getting fresh perspective isn't always the easiest thing. Ever heard of tunnel vision (I sure have!)? With so many fixed elements in place in our lives, it can be difficult to break out of our routine, or look at life through a different lens, never mind through new eyes. Well, it's Monday, friends - and here's to the start of a brand new week!With spring here,…

Good day folks! Here it is, as promised, the brightest, greenest, freshest sauce to hit our fridge (that won't go brown) in a long long while! I should start by stating that I could eat foods inspired by Mexican flavours every day without any issue (really, at all). I mean, really, this food is made with quite possibly the simplest, freshest, and most flavorful ingredients out…

Happy Saturday all! I hope you are all enjoying the start of a wonderful weekend as spring has officially sprung, our days are getting longer, and we are starting to plan for the spring and summer season ahead! I don't know about you guys, but I'm a reasonably busy gal... Eating well on limited time is always a challenge - especially when we want to be outside…
