Here are a few practical things I learned, about the plants, and about life, while creating my garden. From harvesting basil and how to plant transplanted tomatoes, letting plants go to seed, and the difference of what and how you focus your attention... the gifts of nature keep on giving.

Breaking the Silence - My Miscarriage

Today I was due to have a baby.

Last Halloween we found out I was pregnant. We were so excited. By week 9 we had our first ultrasound.

There was no heartbeat and the fetus measured at 7 weeks. I had miscarried. It took another 2 weeks for my body to expel the remains of my uterus.

While I was devastated and heartbroken, I gave myself the space to grieve. I turned to myself, my partner, and my family and friends.

If nothing else, this miscarriage gifted me with realizing what truly matters. Me, here, every day developing my honesty, my forgiveness, my direction, and my creation. Who am I in all that I do and with all I interact with is what matters.

I want to share this with you because one of the biggest supports for me in my grieving process was to hear other women say, "I had one, too."

Turns out... I wasn't alone, It's not uncommon, and I didn't do anything wrong.

The customary silence of the 1st trimester has created a belief that miscarriages do not happen often. They do. 1 in 3 women. I am 1 of 3 women who have had or will have a miscarriage. Some women have multiple miscarriages and go on to carry full-term.

I repeat. It is common. You are not alone. You did nothing wrong.

If more women shared their pregnancy news and so the potential of miscarriage, the more likely we are of portraying the reality of pregnancy. I say share but obviously share with who you choose and when you choose.

I commit to share my pregnancy (and hopefully motherhood journey) with all... the successes and failures, to remove the false ideas and to show the real story.

I am 1 in 3 women. And I am here with you, woman.

In this vlog, Andrew, Hazel and I went camping for a couple of nights and then to visit Andrew's hometown of Prince George, BC. It wasn't extremely uneventful and so it was good practice in stopping the need to "do something." There was however a few encounters with wildlife...

Here I am reflecting on a couple ways in which I am learning to LIVE Responsibility - how I can stop waiting for others to move and act and change but to in fact change myself. Do you want the world to change? Do you have a dog? Do you live with another person? This vlog is for you.

17 months ago I made a decision I knew would change my life but I never expected to the degree it did. I never thought I would or I could - I lacked a whole lot of self-confidence because I saw the level of addicted I let myself become. But, spoiler alert - I did and I am forever changed and forever grateful to myself. Here I share my update - where I'm at with it now, what has happened and some extra encouragement for you on your journey of ridding yourself from your 'ol ball and chain. Addiction is an addiction is an addiction - no matter what it is - food, weed, cigarettes, porn, shopping, self-loathing... the nature of the relationship is the same. If you are currently or will be facing your addiction demon, I hope this video can extend a helping hand and offer you a light at the end of that dark tunnel.

It's been about 3 months since my last garden tour so let me show you how things have developed. I am no expert gardener but I am open and willing to learn which is precisely what happens each time I plant and grow a garden - nature is a teacher. Want to get humbled? Start a garden. Want to be inspired? Start a garden. Want to gain a more holistic perspective on life and relationships? Start a garden. Big or small - inside or out - grow something and nourish life.

How I Was Able to Quit Cold Turkey

After 10 years of telling myself "I'm too addicted..." and believing the withdrawal of stopping smoking would be too hard for me to get through, I finally realized my true power to direct myself in those moments of wanting a cigarette and I quit cold turkey. Did I ever think that would be possible for me? Heck no! But it was, and I did it because I did some very specific things over the past 10 years that prepared me to overcome one of my greatest challenges.
