Where's Has the Time Gone?

Hello Readers,

I hope you are all happy and well. The months just flew by since my last entry! I am starting to think I am on "sabbatical", haha. 

To be honest, I haven't felt  inspired to blog or to review products over the past couples of months. Hopefully, I will be bitten by a magical writing bug and I will be cranking out weekly entries. In the mean time I will quickly share with y'all what I have been doing with my free time. During the the past few months I:
  • Explored the nooks and crannies of Banff and gazed at stars  
  • Soaked in Banff's relaxing outdoor Upper Hot Springs
  • Wandered around the Delta Lodge and surrounding area in Kananaskis
  • Checked out the Calgary Pride Parade 
  • Attended Alberta Ballet's Great Masterpieces of the 20th Century 
  • Watched Othello through Alberta Ballet
  • Went to my first opera (!) - Otello through Calgary Opera 
  • Visited the Glenbow Museum and saw the though-provoking exhibition Fairy Tales, Monsters and the Genetic Imagination
  • Helped execute the perfect surprise birthday party 
  • Had my Twitter account hacked into :(

  • Been showered with gifts from Las Vegas

Take care and stay warm! Wish me luck in finding the magical writing bug. ;) 

Lots of love,

Hello Readers,

I hope you are all well. I apologize for quietly disappearing, and not posting since November 2011! I will make a posting in a few days titled "24 Things I Learnt as a 24 Year Old."

So much has happened since I last updated! The past few months I:

  • Completed my two practicum placements
  • Graduated from university 
  • Attended my convocation 
  • Visited Elbow Falls
  • Was a Poll Clerk at a hospital for the elections in April - a truly eye-opening day for me 
  • Checked out the Glenbow Museum - Charile Russell and The First Calgary Stampede 
  • Went on the Alberta Ballet's 24th Annual  House & Garden Tour 
  • Explored the Royal Tyrrell Museum
  • Was the Maid of Honor for my best friend's wedding
  • Went canoeing (in a dress!)
  • Went on a hike near O'Shaughnessy Falls
  • Gazed at stars in Kananaskis
  • Relaxed in a dry sauna
  • Attended my convocation 
  • Visited Elbow Falls
  • Soaked in an outdoor hot tub while looking at stars 
  • Camped in Lower Kananaskis Lake
  • Roasted marshmallows over a camp fire 
  • Nurtured 17 short sunflowers from seeds
  • Consumed dark lavender chocolate
Whew! I think that's about all I've completed since I last posted, haha. More details will follow about my activities. :)

Lots of love,
