sometimes real life happens...

.. and blogging does not happen.  sorry for being extremely MIA these past few weeks.  I have been spending time with those closest to me while trying to keep up with my school work, job, yoga and running.  this past month was nothing we ever expected and has thrown us on a crazy roller coaster ride.  if I'm not around the bloggy blog you can expect that i'm providing support and comfort to my best friend...

going through this at any age is challenging but D(and you too M) are too young.  I don't think anything ever prepares you for it.

I hope to be back from time to time with some updates on adventures, playing in the sunshine and all the amazing things april holds.

rest easy papa norm.  thinking about you always.

the little things.

these cookies


this face...

enchiladas- the best of the best comfort food.  our favourite go-to meal.

and an entire sunday spent with these girls. (more than a little thing)

this week was definitely an exhausting one.  it seemed to go on forever and it didn't leave me feeling very energized for my weekend.  thursdays power yoga class was my first all week and provided me with a little positive zip to continue on through the rest of my week.  today I'm attending a moksha yoga class to live music led by the co-founder of moksha yoga in order to raise cashola for the emergency room at our local hospital.  great cause and I can't wait to participate.  tomorrow I have a long run on my agenda and I can't wait to get back on my bike next week.  all good things!

I hope to cook some delicious food this weekend and next week since I have been spending my days in the library lately. stay tuned for some new recipe ideas!

westcoast part 2 + thursday thought.

I can't believe it is thursday already.  this week has been absolutely insane.  so busy with work and school but finally midterms are over.  here are a few last photos from our trip last week... 

stormy lookout.

new awesome trail!

and a thought for you...

hope to be back sometime soon with some recipes! I'm off to a much needed yoga class and possibly a run in this beautiful sunshine!
