Happy EasterApr 17, 2022

Spring is a wonderful time of new growth and rebirth. And chocolate and bunnies and beautiful bonnets. I hope today is a breath of fresh air in your life!


Get lucky!Mar 17, 2022

My mom was a stickler about wearing green on St. Patrick's Day. She also had a small shamrock plant, and every March 17th, she had us bring a small cutting to our teacher in elementary school. Even funnier - we don't have a drop of Irish blood on either side of the family!

But have some fun today and try something green. A spinach or kale smoothie, a zucchini fritter, some pistachio cake! I personally don't recommend a green beer, but that's just me. May today be a lucky one for you - in business, at home, and in love! (And in reading.)

Happy St. Valentine's DayFeb 14, 2022

Treat yourself and your loved one to something special today. A meal, a foot rub, a funny text. Spread the love, my friends!

Happy Groundhog Day!Feb 2, 2022

Happy Groundhog Day! (Yes, I know I'm repeating myself. That's part of what makes it funny.)

While some people celebrate this as a day to get news of a potentially early spring, we in Winnipeg know we're never going to get it six weeks early. But we can have some fun with it. For me, this day is not complete without Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell and the hilarious film "Groundhog Day." If you haven't seen it yet, you're only 29 years behind the times, and I still recommend it.

It's a brand new start!Jan 1, 2022

I have to tell you that I love January 1st. I'm a firm believer in lists and resolutions and giving yourself a day to reset. (To be fair to the rest of the calendar, I'll also reset myself every quarter and every month. Wipe that slate clean!)

2020's resolutions went out the window with the Covid-19 pandemic. 2021's were very small because it was still raging. I hope that 2022 will be the year I reemerge from my social distanced cocoon and introduce a whole new me to a brand new world.

Who do you want to be in 2022? What are you going to do to make it happen?

Happy New Year!Dec 31, 2021

I'm not going to lie. These last couple years have been rough! Hopefully we are over the hump, and 2022 will be a year of getting fully back into the world while continuing to practice what we've learning about being good neighbours. 

I wish you all the best in the New Year! Start it off with a bang!

Kwanzaa begins todayDec 26, 2021

Today is the first day of Kwanzaa, a weeklong celebration held in the United States that honours African heritage in African-American culture.

To my friends who celebrate it, I hope this Kwanzaa brings you the opportunity to enjoy the blessings of family and community.
