Happy Leap Day!

It’s that time that every 4 years we get an extra day! Hope you made the best of it… and enjoyed your extra ‘leap year day’!  Here’s your little random fact of the day: Did you know that traditionally that on Leap Year Days… that was the only time a woman could propose to a man? leap year_0002One of my favourite self portraits of me ‘leaping’ in the sunset on the beach in El Salvador…

Update on Milo

It’s been a crazy week of many disappointments.  Today I realized that my last car payment the week before didn’t come out of my account.  At first I was like, “just another thing to deal with…why do banks have to mess up?”.  So I called and my bank looked into my problem of no payment being taken out of my account!  Imagine my surprise when I was told my car had been paid off in full with the last payment…3 weeks prior! Milo

I must admit it was a wee bit painful for 4 years while I was in Nunavut having to pay for a car I couldn’t drive…but in the long run… it all worked out fine!

YES… it’s been a LONG 5 years…but MILO was finally PAID for in full.  That my friends was the BEST news I received this week. I can’t wait to see what new adventures Milo and I will have on the road.

#FMSPhotoaDay: Week# 7

My first week back at home went so crazy fast! It was great to be back at work and at home again. Settling back into my house…and catching up with friends has been awesome!

So here was the list for last week’s photos:


Day 9: energy… I needed a turtle break to re-energize me mid-afternoon to get through my day at work!


Day 10: this inspires me…I’ve been trying to spend more time on my treadmill and so far since coming home I’ve kept up with 60mins a day Monday-Friday! This board is beside my treadmill filled with lots of fun quotes and inspiring messages…I like the lady who says, “get on with it!”


Day 11: on the wall… Everyone needs to have a spot to store their superhero suit! Mine is on my office wall.


Day 12: pointy… My Indigo’s Raven feather-a friend gave it to me on my 2013 trip to the Yukon!


Day 13: temptation… All my Christmas candy and chocolates!!! Need to stash them and pull them out for a rainy (or snowy cold) day!


Day 14: love… When I was living in Australia 11 years ago my mum sent this heart & globe to me in one of her many care packages…with a note explaining that she was sending her heart around the world to me…when I got back to Canada I was upset that I had lost the heart in Australia I complained about being broken hearted so much my mum went out & replaced my heart so I could be “whole” again… And since then I keep them close to me when I travel!


Day 15: spot… My favourite $2.99 bag I got in Kmart in Australia…it’s a wee but spotty!!!


Another week down…here’s the list for Week 8! Why don’t you join me in posting a photo a day this week?!


#FMSPhotoaDay- Week 4

Wow, a week of fun has flown by so fast having fun exploring here in Manila and Boracay. Even with all my travelling I was still able to share some snaps of my travels. I can’t wait to get home and process all my Canon 6D shots! But let’s not get ahead of myself– I still have 5 more days in the Philippines and travelling again this week to see another region!

Here was the list of prompts for week 4.


Day 19: homemade… I shared this snap of the quilt I’ve been working on for over a year! I just have to finish hand quilting the blocks–I have 7 out of 20 done. Can’t wait to get home and work on this project again.


Day 20: window… This shot was taken at the Manila Cathedral.


My runner up for day 20… From Fort Santiago- it was a dungeon window! Had to share both…


Day 21: in a row…took this photo while waiting for my flight to Boracay.


Day 22: collection of coral and shells!


Day 23: something far away…sailboats in the horizon.


Day 24: playtime… For these three brave souls on the reverse bungee!


Day 25: black + white… Just walking down the street singing with a baloon!


Another week of photos is done! Check out this Photo A Day list for Week 5. Play with me? #fmsphotoaday
