Everyone who knows me, knows that coffee is my drink of choice. Not just for the great “pick-me-up” it gives me in the morning, but for the taste, the aroma, the colour, the texture… I love everything about coffee. The problem is that coffee gets a bad rap a lot of the time meanwhile there are quite a few health benefits to drinking coffee daily. So for your enjoyment and to give all my fellow coffee drinkers ammunition the next time you hear someone say “coffee is bad for you” here are 5 rebuttals!
It has long been a dream of mine to experience living in another country. I was never sure when the opportunity would arise or where in the world I would end up. God saw fit to fulfill this dream of mine in the form of my husband who lives in Paris, France. So it was decided early on in our dating relationship that we would spend some time in Paris before settling for good in Canada. (more…)
Today is Father’s Day and all around the country people are are celebrating their earthly fathers. While I certainly appreciate my dad for all he is and all he’s done I want to take a moment to speak about my Heavenly Father. Without him I wouldn’t even have the earthly father that I’ve been blessed with.
On May 20th, 2017 I married my God-sent husband and best friend in a simple ceremony in my dad’s church. My day was perfect and I couldn’t have asked for more from my family, friends, wedding vendors and all who participated to make our day so special. Most importantly, God showed up and that made all the difference in the world. This is our wedding slideshow put together beautifully by our very talented and gifted photographer Sarah Neal.
I woke up unusually early this morning, about 7. Usually I’m up closer to about 9. I lay in bed thinking about all what I have to do in the coming days and weeks leading up to my wedding. The list just seemed never ending and overwhelming. I was thinking about all the wedding related things and basic bills involved with living that I have to pay for with no idea really how I would get it all done or pay for it all in time. Weddings are expensive, particularly weddings with a 300+ guest list.
Finally after laying in bed for some time thinking and thinking, I got up and started getting ready for my day. A little thought came to me and said what do you want to do with your day?
In honour of International Women’s Day I thought to share with you what the bible has to say about a strong woman in Proverbs 31. Although it talks a lot about being a wife, the happily single ladies can also take away something from the resourcefulness and strength described in the Proverbs 31 Women.
I SAID YES!!! On November 18th, my love Trésor, got down on one knee at a Vernissage in Griffintown at the Montreal Art Institute, in front of the art work of Jenna Schwartz which just happened to match what I was wearing that day and asked me to be his wife. (more…)
