As 2017 came to a close, I picked a word or an idea I wanted to operate by in 2018. This year it is "no fear." This is not the same as fearless. That is a little too warrior-like for me running head long into any situation. "No fear" is more of a philosophy to move mor...

Christmas is one of my favourite times of year.  I love the festiveness of the season.  It is sensory overload in the weeks leading up to Christmas Day.  There are twinkling lights, beautiful music, heavenly smells, tasty treats and gatherings.
