Had the perfect day in Winnipeg with my favourite little ladies. I’m not going to miss the cold weather, but will miss how warm my ❤️ feels in their presence. So incredibly grateful for everyone in my life, and wish I had more time to say goodbyes...but I know I’ll be back for visits. Winnipeg always has that way of drawing me back. For now, I’m looking forward to many adventures on the west coast!
When people ask me what it is I love about working for Lululemon, it's hard to list just one thing...
•We sell amazing athletic gear 🏃♀️
•Involved in anything community related 🤝
•Monthly budget to get sweaty 💦
•Supportive of growth and development 🙋
The list goes on...but the most important thing to me??? I've never worked with a group of so many like-minded people before. Traveling to Calgary this week for #purposeandpractice reminded me that this is company and country wide. Made some instant friends to do some of the things I love most with...Thank you @aliveandlovingit and @kaitlinmcintyre for the 6am 🥊class!
So very grateful to have such wonderful people in my life. The past few weeks have been full of connecting with new and old friends alike. One of these is the magical @barnswallowdesign who is seriously one of the most creative and considerate women I know. If you haven't had the chance to check out her custom made jewellery, you're missing out! Thank you again for the beautiful birthday gift. I love it!! 💕
Physically I am exhausted and sore, but emotionally, mentally and spiritually I am so energized after this weekend! So much gratitude for everyone who came together and made #prairielovefestival the magic that it was. Teachers, attendees, vendors, sponsors, volunteers...the list goes on. Special thanks to @prairieyogi and @lauraawittig for making this all happen 💕🙏🏻✨
What a great birthday! Apparently 35 isn't so bad...but one of the greatest gifts I could have received was celebrating with some amazing family and friends. Thanks to all who made my day extra special, especially my grandparents who made the trip all the way from Victoria! So grateful and blessed to have such wonderful people in my life, both near and far.
Took a digital detox for the weekend...started off because I received a notification that I hit my data limit for the month, but quickly became grateful because it forced me to be in the moment and disconnect from social media. Got grounded in the mountains, and came back to the prairies with a new love and passion for this gorgeous country we get to call home.
Another girls weekend has come and gone...managed to capture this beautiful sunset on Saturday after a day of being cooped up in the cabin catching up. Reflecting on my drive home and realized we have been friends for 20 years! So crazy to think about all that has happened throughout the years, and yet we manage to make time for these annual weekends to connect with one another. Thanks for being such a wonderful host @carolfenner There is something so very special about old friends...hoping for many more years to come! 💕
Sometimes in life you meet someone and have an instant connection....making it impossible to deny that it's happened for a reason. This week I met @jacqui_hathaway and made a new best friend. When she introduced me to @hipsobriety and said the words 'Never Question The Decision' I knew this was why we met.
I've been struggling with the decision to stay sober for some time now, and this was validation from the universe that the time is now. Feel free to read the blog (link in bio on Instagram or below on Facebook) for more details. Thanks to @kalbarteski for the custom script to help remind me daily!
I've been seeing so many peacocks lately that I had to look up the meaning, and was instantly reminded that this universe gives us exactly what we need to hear when we ask. The peacock symbolizes integrity, and is a reminder of the beauty we can achieve when we show our true colours. Note to self: be true to yourself always. I spent so many years trying to fit the mould of who I thought others wanted me to be, and it was exhausting. New goals: authenticity in every area of life. Time to be proud of who I am, just like this gorgeous peacock ✌🏼
"Let silence take you to the core of life" ~ Rumi Been working an insane schedule lately, so taking time to disconnect from the external world and connect to the internal has been crucial. Just taking five minutes to close my eyes, connect to my breath and quiet my thoughts on a daily basis has helped me remember what my purpose in life is. #meditation#wellness#yoga#wpg 📷 & 📿@barnswallowdesign
Another awesome sweat session this morning at #novemberproject with these babes! So grateful for motivating friends to workout with 🏃♀️💦💪🏼 @mpantel @jaimeppeterson Yes, that is grass on my head...they literally had us crawling on the ground. Thanks @novemberprojectywg for the workout!
Literally drenched in sweat post spin class. Had a great time checking out my first class at @wpg_cycle 💦🚴🏼♀️ Huge thanks to @laura_tesfazghi for leading us and @mpantel for being such an awesome workout date!
Loving my @byoganow mat! Perfect for when I'm teaching or attending classes. Thank you @prairieyogi for providing such a beautiful workshop today. Thanks to @barnswallowdesign for the gorgeous mala 📿(seriously check out her custom jewellery 😍). What a perfect beginning to the spring 🌷☀️
Couldn't agree more. Thank you for the great reminder @drrebeccaray and @beingisbeautiful For a 'perfectionist' on this journey to health and happiness it's easy to wonder when you're going to arrive. But just trusting that we are exactly where we should be is quite comforting 💕
Had a blast connecting with these female entrepreneurs at the #shestarts workshop put on by @johanna.seier this past weekend. Still feeling inspired and grateful for the ability to connect with like minded women in Winnipeg. Photo cred @mpantel
Happy April 1st! This month is bringing about big changes, and I couldn't be more excited. Moving to a new area of the city, started a new job Thursday, and a new meal plan (thanks to the most educational visit to an amazing naturopathic doctor). So ya...lots of beginnings going on over here. Embracing the change, and love that it's coinciding with spring time! 🌷#happyapril#notanaprilfoolsjoke#change#newbeginnings#movingday
