2012: Onward and Upward

Instead of jumping right into resolutions for 2012, I am first going to take a look back at 2011. Not in hindsight, mind you, but rather to reflect on the things I was proud of in 2011, and to set goals on what I can think about improving on for the year to come. Hat … Continue reading 2012: Onward and Upward

Best of 2010

It's a little late, but what the heck. I've never done a full year recap on my blog - only a summer recap in photos - probably because it's very time-consuming. But this year was pretty special, with a lot of news-worthy items to share, so... let's get started. January I did a contract gig … Continue reading Best of 2010

Happy Mother’s Day, Momsie

In honour of Mother's day, I wanted to share some of my favourite moments I've had with my Mom. This photo was taken in October of 2006, when my mother and I went on a backpacking trip through France and Italy. I still can't believe she went backpacking, and neither can my Dad. Above, we … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day, Momsie

My 2010 Olympic Experience

I can't believe it taken me so long to write about this. Mind you, every single 17 days of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics has been a whirlwind, and life seems comparably dull now that it has come and gone. It would have been much easier if I did a few posts throughout the Olympics, … Continue reading My 2010 Olympic Experience

Tell Ten Friends. Do it.

A little while ago I told you about working for my brother Wes, and doing his marketing, well, I'm also working with my brother Jordan at Tell Ten Friends. I know. It's complicated. But our family makes a really great team. It's not always a "great minds think alike" situation, but we all bring something … Continue reading Tell Ten Friends. Do it.

Shaking things up

Some of you may have already heard that I recently started working part-time for my older brother Wesley, who is a real estate agent for RE/MAX Crest Realty Westside. I am assisting with his marketing efforts, including everything from social networking sites, e-mail newsletters, and design projects like postcards and other direct mail pieces. My … Continue reading Shaking things up

Summer 2009 in Pictures

I have been unbelievably lazy with blogging lately, and I'd like to blame it on being really busy doing fun stuff. Most of my weekends this summer have been spent out of town, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. It's so nice to get out of the city once in awhile, and … Continue reading Summer 2009 in Pictures

Mom to carry the Olympic Torch in 2010!

It's crazy, but it's true. My Mom applied to carry the Olympic torch in 2010 - she entered contests, she wrote essays, and finally her hard has work paid off. She got an e-mail confirming that she would indeed be carrying the Olympic torch next year on February 4, 2010 for 400 metres through our … Continue reading Mom to carry the Olympic Torch in 2010!

Our Sun Run Interview with Erin Cebula from Global

If you've been reading, you probably know that my family - my mother, my two brothers, Jordan and Wesley, and I all ran the Vancouver Sun Run on April 19, 2009. We challenged each other to the race, but also to raise the most money for charity. After completing the run, SatoCanada awarded Wes with … Continue reading Our Sun Run Interview with Erin Cebula from Global
