I am the creator of this website and although I call myself a city girl, I live in the woods somewhere outside of Toronto. I can usually be found talking to my cat and looking for snacks.
I’m always on the go, but I like working from home. Probably because that’s where my cat is and I can snack while building my dreams. The thing is, I really struggled asking myself “What do I want to do?” and feeling lost when none of the industries I found interesting seemed truly reachable. It weighed on my mind and heart trying to make myself twist, change and fit into a job description… until I wrote my own. I’m still working from home but I’m now also looking for a job outside the house. There’s a lot of benefits to working at home but a lot of drawbacks as well. I’m starting to think I’ll hang on to some work from home projects, let others go, and start something new in a traditional work setting. I’m sharing how I got where I am, the journey which I am still on, and the realities of choosing to be a social entrepreneur and define myself.
I believe that we should follow our own hearts and our own rules when designing our relationships. After 7 years with my husband, I fell in love with my best friend and her husband. My husband fell for my best friend too and for a while we were a happy polyamorous family. After two years, moving in together and thinking a lot about our relationships, what we’d learned in being polyamorous and what we wanted for our future we realized we needed to make some changes. It was a twist I certainly didn’t see coming but I wouldn’t trade my relationship now for the world.
When I’m not blogging or spending time with my partner, I’m probably dying a slow, sweaty death on the treadmill. My secret dream is that science will someday let me eat the pizza and lose the weight but until then, I’m on a journey towards improved health and getting crazy strong.
This blog is my little corner of the internet to share, connect and ramble. I hope you’ll brew a cup of tea and we can laugh, cry and dream together.
