Wellness / Self-care

Wellness / Self-care

I’ve hit that point again.. There's a very distinct feeling and moment at which I begin to realize I'm starting to feel drained.  It's like the moment you're driving along and the orange gas light pops on to let you know you're getting close to empty, getting close to needing a fill.  That's me, in this moment.  Self care is easily forgettable.  For me when life gets busy, our social calendar is filled up, there are people who demand attention and care, it's spring and I'm feeling the urgency of newness, needing to get the garden cleaned up and vegetable seed orders placed, taxes, main floor ceilings that needs to be repainted - life.  And it's a balance of the thrill of knowing I'm running on empty and pushing the limits, while also being aware that I'm about to hit a wall and be empty, stranded on the side of the road when it's not fun or thrilling anymore.

Drumheller // Weekend Playlist

Drumheller // Weekend Playlist

Last weekend we adventured to Drumheller Alberta.  It's a stunning part of the world. Adventures + photos is my kind of day.  Plus its a nice little day trip and I don't know about anyone else but long drives are when James and I have the most life-giving convo.  We often end up turning the podcast off or the music way down because we get into such great conversation.  Re-connection.  It's where a lot of sparks fly for idea, thoughts, change, growth, learning etc.  Dinner and road-trips are where the magic happens.  (Which for some reason makes me think of the Seinfeld episode where George has a phone conversation with a new girl and talks about how great they are on the phone together....anyone?)

Cutting Board // Project

Cutting Board // Project

We are CONSTANTLY doing projects and creating things for our home so I thought it was time to share one of those projects!  It's taken me this long because I wanted any home tutorial I shared here not only to be tried, tested, and true but also beautiful, functional, really well thought out and quality made.  I've had this project in mind for quite sometime.  It's pretty simple, and checks all the required boxes.  We ended up with a cutting/serving/charcuterie board that I will proudly use and display in our kitchen.  This would also make for a really beautiful gift if you don't have a need for another cutting board (although I'm honestly not sure who doesn't need another serving board).
