I DREAD the winter months. Everyone who knows me can vouch that I loathe everything to do with the white stuff. It’s not just the cold, or the high hydro bills, nor is it the endless shovelling, layers upon layers of clothing, extra laundry or lack of color outside. The fact of the matter is, winter affects me in a negative way. The darkness, the lack of sunshine and Vitamin D intake (even though I take a supplement) take me into a bit of a depression. Mooshinindy has written about her struggle with the same sort of thing and I could relate […] Continue reading →

Passion Island

I’ve been to Mexico a couple of times, however one of the most amazing spots I had the pleasure of visiting, was actually an excursion that I took with Carnival Cruise Lines. Isla de Pasion, also known as Passion Island, is located approximately 30-40 minutes from Cozumel by ferry. Just breathtaking. Where can you find a beach like this in Mexico? I had yet to see one, until we visited Passion Island. What we loved the most about this island is the exclusivity you felt while visiting. Miles of white sand, a pristine beach and the entire island to yourself […] Continue reading →

maya angelou

When I opened up my computer this morning and read that author, poet and all around extraordinary woman Maya Angelou passed away at the age of 86, my heart sunk. She was an incredible woman who has inspired me for years now. Her book “Letters to my Daughter” was one of my favourites. I use it as a reference book, reading it regularly. Her wise words are filled with truth. She was one of those people that made the world a better place. Her legacy will live on, inspiring generation upon generation thanks to the media clips and books we […] Continue reading →
