We escaped the Toronto cold and headed off to Mexico to Paradisus La Esmeralda. The pricing at this particular resort has been more than we could afford the last few years but in a moment of “get us out of the cold or I’m going to die” during the winter, I searched up the resort and there were some crazy deals so we jumped on it and booked. All inclusive is not my favourite type of travel, but it certainly is the easiest and good for the whole family. You know what you’re paying, no one has to drive from point A to B, and the hospitality is awesome. If you’re looking to book, we recommend Katherine Lewis who has handled most of our vacations. We booked this one on our own because we stumbled on a sale and didn’t want to loose out – but if you’re planning ahead, an agent like Katherine is awesome.

I went to a sound bath in a salt cave at a new spot in Toronto called Hoame. I went to one in California last year and found it so helpful – Meditation and mindfulness has helped me immensely over the winter with leading a healthier lifestyle and taking the occasional class like this are little treats. I wish I could do it more often but it can all add up to be expensive. The nice thing is – it’s like a little refresher class to get you practicing meditation at home – all of these things you can do at home for free, but sometimes a class is a nice way to spend an evening.

Other things this to kickstart this week:

Happy Spring!

Well hello there. Long time no see. I’ve taken a needed breather from the blog and it did we a world of good. I think I can say that I no longer look at this space as a “thing I need to do” and instead, I’m coming back looking forward to sharing. Sometimes breaks are good. I mean, Aubrey and I took a ton of them when we were teenagers and dating – and look at us know. So maybe that’s what my blog needed was a break to see other people.

It has been a quietish few months. I’ve been trying to get back into illustrating, and digging deep for some new inspiration for works of art. It has been a bit of a struggle, I’m chalking it up to the Canadian winter and being so BLEH.  I’ve been helping girlfriends with the branding on their businesses and I love to seeing others just go for it.

Anyhow, it has been nice to step away from the blog to focus on everyday life and I’m looking forward to popping back on here to write some more. If you don’t already, pop over to Instagram where I’m posting the occasional sketch video as I dive back into showing how my art and products come to be. I thought it would be a good insight into what I actually DO over here. Plus it’s a nice focus for me, the ability to share my process.
