My non-binding New Year’s non-resolution

January 1. The start of a new calendar year. Fresh starts. Clean beginnings. Blah. Blah. Blah. I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions. There is always something I can be working on to be the best person I can be. Why would I commit to resolve one or two things in life when my personal growth is limitless? Besides, according to the...

Raising my glass to 2014

What can I say? Two thousand fourteen was ah-maze-ing! While I’m a teensy bit sad to see it go, I’m even more excited to see what 2015 has in store. While most rang in the 2014 New Year with bubbly, the only thing that flowed here were tears. My heart  weighed a million pounds and I didn’t know if I could ever...

‘Tis the season to give

Amidst the hustle and bustle of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the start of the holidays, it’s easy to forget the reason for the season: giving.

Ain’t no time for horsefeathers

You may know that I have a slight obsession with heavy horses. And by slight I mean that I’m surprised no hitches have reported a crazy blonde chick stalking following them around every weekend throughout the summer. I love these gentle giants so much that I may have purchased an extra week of holidays at a fundraising auction at work. I needed to ensure I...

Get your skis shined up

24 hours. 1,440 minutes. 86,400 seconds. 2,000 people. $2M raised for local kids in need. For the 3rd year in a row I am incredibly honoured to be skiing 24h Tremblant – a relay style ski event and a festive, fun-filled weekend. It’s a 24 hour non-stop, non-competitive ski & snowboard challenge. Teams even race through the wee hours of...
