This evening marks ten years since I left Canada and moved to Las Vegas. I’ve been vacillating between a lot of different feelings regarding this milestone, but what I mostly gravitate toward is gratitude. I am grateful that I took a leap of faith for love.

WINTER LISTS ON A SUNDAY MORNING.

Waking up on January 1st always feels like a new beginning. It doesn’t matter if you’re one of those people who think new years resolutions are a joke. Because I don’t. To me, it’s a fresh start. A clean slate. A whole new year to do with it what I like, and put the past behind me. With that in mind, here’s a little glimpse at life right now: things currently on the table. 2 hot wheels cars half-burnt candle...
