Pura Vida in Costa Rica

Pura Vida in Costa Rica

It’s 5: 30 in the morning, and I’m staring directly into the eyes of a caiman. I can tell it sees me but does not flinch as the boat lingers in front of it. Its mouth is wideopen and its sharp teeth are exposed. I feel unnerved as I slide further back in...
Bring on the Adventure!

Bring on the Adventure!

Tomorrow I will be leaving for Costa Rica – a place I have dreamed of visiting for years.  It was on my top 40 under 40 list because of the rain forests, wildlife and culture. It’s a place that has always intrigued me and I can’t wait to see it with my own...
A Make-Over for the Mind and the Body

A Make-Over for the Mind and the Body

Although one of my 40 Under 40 goals this year doesn’t fit under adventure or travel, it is definitely risky, and something I’ve wanted to do for many years. As I’ve moved through my 30’s, I seem to have slipped in to a comfort zone with my outward appearance. So much...
White Water River Rafting

White Water River Rafting

One of the more spirited adventures I’ve always wanted to try is whitewater river rafting. What’s great about it is that, despite being a really exciting outdoor activity, it is also safe enough to take even a novice person along for the ride. Which is...

It’s true that many of us have dreams of another life we could live if we had the chance. For me, I’ve always dreamed of working on a chocolate production line. Perhaps it was that I Love Lucy episode I saw as a young girl, where she is gobbling up...
Montreal in the Summer

Montreal in the Summer

Eminem

Eminem

If I had to use one word to describe the feeling of being at an Eminem Concert it would be – thrilling.  He was everything I had hoped he would be in concert.  He played at the Osheaga Event in Montreal on July 29th and I couldn’t believe that it was his...
A Huge Thank you

A Huge Thank you

This past weekend, I was to run in the Amazing Journey for the Ronald McDonald House with my husband David. Unfortunately, after raising $550.00 for our run, I developed strep throat and was unable to take part in the race. Although it was a huge disappointment for...
Skydiving in Abbotsford

Skydiving in Abbotsford

So I finally took the “leap” – so to speak – at Sky Dive Vancouver yesterday afternoon. It was a perfect, sunny day for jumping. I have to tell you that the people at Sky Dive Vancouver were absolutely amazing.  If I had any reservations...
Good Bye to my Parenting Column

Good Bye to my Parenting Column

So in keeping with my new “40 under 40” project this year – I have had to make a very important decision. I have decided to leave my parenting column “Mom’s Life” of almost six years, and instead, write my adventure column. The 40...
