A good friend sent me this today and it came at the perfect time. I am not one to shy away from my dreams, but even I have doubts before I take these flying leaps. I have been working in an industry that I'm good at, but no longer fulfilled in for quite some time. It's always been my safety net, because let's face it... It's easier to go back to what you know, what's considered your expertise, than to climb an uphill mountain learning about new passions and ideas. I have a few new things happening and I'm super excited, but still nervous. I'm leaving the corporate world behind to start learning about sustainable agriculture, pursing a business venture with a friend and eventually making skulls and kittens into the vision I see for it. If you are toying with an idea, a dream but are too comfortable in complacency then I urge you to look into the depths of your soul to see where it wants you to go. Trust me, leaving is scary, but to me, staying a situation untrue to yourself is downright terrifying. So, I'm throwing caution to the wind... Here I come purple hair and tattoos!!! What would you pursue if you knew it was impossible to fail?
The waterfront trail is where I first fell in love with running. I lived by the lake and I ran to this spot almost every damn day. Today was my first time running on the trail since I moved out of the waterfront in 2013. #backpain
The temperature jumped significantly today, and even more so this evening, up to a balmy 10°C! It’s been pouring rain all day, and again now, but we had a lovely rainless evening walk in the fog...

↟↟↟This moment right here is one I will remember forever... I grew up kayaking with my family. Summer afternoons spent picnicking, paddling and jumping into the lake at Bigelow Hollow are some of my fondest memories as a child.
➳ The last week of our trip we’d made it to Banff, a place I dreamed of visiting for years, where we met up with my friend Rod. When he suggested taking the kayak out at sunrise I could’ve cried.
➳ Maybe it was a combination of pure exhaustion, homesickness and joy, all sisters of life on the road. Either way, when I stepped into the kayak and my paddle first dipped into the frosty blue lake, snow flakes falling and melting on contact with my flushed face, it felt like coming home... even a glance at this photo takes me right back #wildbynature

One of the many perks of campervan travel is that exploring doesn't end just because the sun is going down. Spotted the incredible Gullfoss Waterfall just before the sun set yesterday. What a view!
