I have a secret! Mr. Michie surprised me on Valentine’s by telling me he was taking me to our beloved city for a short break! I almost passed out with delight! We bundled up and walked through the snow to some of our favourite places and made some new discoveries along the way too. We ate delicious food, lit candles in our apartment and watched the river go by at night. It was very hygge!

Peter Huntoon A Day in Vermont

In talking with someone today, they shared with me that they felt I was brave. I waved it off politely, for I don’t see myself that way, but she reiterated to me that I was. I thanked her and our conversation carried on.

Her words stayed with me this afternoon. Brave means different things to different people. We don’t often look at ourselves in those terms, but the more I thought about it and I mean this is no conceded way, I thought to myself, “Yes! Yes! I am brave!”

As we move into this season of Lent, a time for reflection, I am making a personal stand and a bold choice. With the love and support of my family, I’m stepping on to the path of a new adventure. With eyes wide, I’m excited, nervous and very ready.

Head held high, I’m taking my leap.


Hello? It’s Me!

James Corden is an extremely funny and talented man. I think we have watched one of his latest “Carpool Karaoke” videos at least a dozen times. I wish I was in the backseat of this car ride! What a HOOT!
