2017 Outdoor Adventure Show (recap)

Organizers of the Toronto Outdoor Adventure Show put a call out for talented bloggers to help promote the show, so I sent an email and got a reply! I want to send out a HUGE thank you to Kayla Hlywka for giving me the amazing opportunity to promote the show, give away tickets and connect…

My Most Memorable Birthday, Ever

It was my 30th birthday and I knew I had to think of something to make it memorable. The sun hadn’t yet come up when I thought of an idea. I wanted to see a caribou on my 30th birthday! So, I nudged my husband who was still sleeping and told him what I wanted to do….

#WordlessWednesday

I had to do a project for one of my photography classes where I had to make a portrait (using a model) and have them wear armour that depicts my theme. My theme was my sense of adventure, so this photograph is titled ‘My sense of adventure is protected by my armour.’

The Grass is Greener: An American Perspective

I’ve always loved Canada. What’s not to love about a country that stands for peace, freedom, and equal rights for everyone?

The LA is the blogging world’s version of the Screen Actor’s Guild award. It dates back to…

Being Dragged Away from My Screen (to go outside)

One of the main reasons why I decided to go back to school was because I was tired of sitting at a desk for 37.5 hours/week and staring at a computer screen. I knew for sure that photography would get me outside and away from the desk. Of course, all photographers know that an equal…

Winter Adventures | Limberlost Forest and Wildlife Reserve

Well, my 3-week break from school is over and I go back tomorrow for the second semester of my photography program. I squeezed in another adventure before I get too busy to do more than just micro-adventures between school, homework, projects and work. It didn’t take long for me to return to the Limberlost Forest and…

New Year’s Day Snowshoe and Cookout!

A couple of weeks ago I shared a chickpea curry recipe and noted that it inspired an idea to have a cookout. So with that in mind, a plan for our annual New Year’s Day adventure and cookout was on the rise! I have been interested in checking out the Limberlost Forest and Wildlife Reserve (LFWR)…
