I could pretty much do an entire segment of Madonna flashbacks because I was such a huge Madonna fan throughout my teen years (still am, but not quite as hardcore now). I still remember standing on a window ledge in my grandmother’s house, a ledge that was actually huge and very much like a stage, and I would sing loudly to “Like a Virgin”, dancing around and having no actual understanding of what I was singing. I never knew if my parents were appalled or amused.I could also…

There are so many things I wish I knew before I started meditating.Remember when meditation used to bring about images of Buddhist monks in robes, sitting in a cave high up in the mountains, thinking about nothing for hours and hours on end?To be honest, a lot of people STILL likely visualize that when someone mentions meditation.I didn’t quite think it was necessary to incorporate all of that, but I do admit I had some pre-conceived notions about meditation in the past. I put off…

Sunday mornings usually find me sleeping in but last Sunday I was up by 6 am – on purpose! And I was happy about it! And I practically skipped to the bathroom when I saw the sun shining!

Why was a night owl and not-much-of-a-morning-person so thrilled to be up with the early birds? It was race day!

After putting in my contacts and splashing some water on my face I got dressed in my black running pants, a bright blue running shirt, and tucked my ponytail up into my favourite hat. I was downstairs making two pieces of toast with peanut butter by 6:30 am and made sure everyone in the family was up and at ’em. Once 7 am hit we were pulling out of the driveway and heading downtown so I could run my very first half marathon ever!

It was a beautiful morning, that’s for sure. Maybe there’s something to this whole get-up-early thing.

Somehow I’m finding myself in early September – with not a single thing written in all of August – and I still haven’t taken the time to share our wedding which happened almost a month ago on August 11th. It’s so hard to believe that it’s been that long already. For all the time it took for us to finally get to our wedding day, it went by so stereotypically fast and here we are, back in our regular routines. Except now we’re in our regular routines with a “Mr & Mrs” firmly attached as a prefix.

So although it’s been some time, let’s go back to August 11th, 2012, the day that Sherry and George got married.

The CBC website has a pretty in-depth story about the shooting at Dawson College yesterday. A name has finally been released and the gunman has been identified as 25-year-old Laval resident Kimveer Gill. It’s interesting how eyewitness accounts can be off sometimes – yesterday afternoon they were saying he was a blond man with a mohawk.In further updates, although yesterday it was believed that no one had died other than the gunman himself, who was shot by police, this morning they confirmed that an 18-year…
