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 tip to my friend Carol Kelley for this one! In … Continue reading 2012: Onward and Upward
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 from January to March for AdHack. Some of you might … Continue reading Best of 2010
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 were sitting at a little restaurant on the ocean in … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day, Momsie
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, but alas, I am doing it all in one long … Continue reading My 2010 Olympic Experience
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 valuable to the table and we work well together. At … Continue reading Tell Ten Friends. Do it.
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 first project as Wes’ new Marketing Manager (I totally just … Continue reading Shaking things up
The other night I went out with my Dad, brothers, Grandpa, uncles, and male cousins to a BC Lions game. Someone took this photo of my Grandpa Glenn and I, and after seeing it on my camera, he said, “Put it on the internet!” That just cracked me up. My Grandpa is the king of gadgets. He’s the hardest person to buy gifts for, because … Continue reading My Grandpa
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 to spend time with friends and family. Anyway, rather than … Continue reading Summer 2009 in Pictures
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 hometown of Powell River where she lives, in honour of … Continue reading Mom to carry the Olympic Torch in 2010!
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 a trophy for raising the most for his charity. Also, … Continue reading Our Sun Run Interview with Erin Cebula from Global
