Why Is Easter My Favourite Holiday?

When someone is asked what their favourite holiday is, Christmas almost always shoots out of their mouth without a second thought. With good reason. Everyone loves a bit of Christmas. 

Myself, on the other hand, I love Easter the most. 

It has nothing to do with the whole religious aspect of it- unfortunately- I'm not a very religious person. There's just something about Easter that makes me feel happy from the inside out.

My Makeup Confessions

1. I don't know how to do my eyebrows. They're often bushy and unkempt but I don't even care. Sometimes I think I'd like to go get them done and learn how to fill them in but meh 🤷. Never happens.

When Your Heart Wants Another Baby But Your Mind Can't Handle It

Grab a snack sis, this is a long one.

The idea of having children was always a strange thing for me.
When I was younger, around the ages of 10-15 we'll say, I wanted lots of kids. I was that girl who wanted like 5 babies. Being that young, I didn't understand things like the cost of raising children or how hard raising a child can really be. All I knew was that I wanted a big family.

Fast forward to 17/18 year old me. Anxiety started trickling into my every day life a little bit. Not a worrisome amount but enough to cause unwarranted fear in certain aspects of my life. I remember I read a book. It was Nicholas Sparks' novel called At First Sight. It was a beautiful story but after reading it, I developed an intense fear of dying during childbirth. A fear that embedded itself in me for years.

Clam Harbour Beach Provincial Park | Lake Charlotte, NS

If I had to choose a favourite place- this would be it. Clam Harbour Beach Provincial Park is one we visit fairly often. I can't even begin to describe the beauty of this beach- but I'll try my best!
It's long. Like, really long. I don't know the exact length but imagine brilliant white sand as far as the eye can see. Rolling sand dunes, tall grass at your back and an endless ocean at your front.

The Beginning Of My Weight-Loss Journey

It's been a long time coming- a real looong time coming- but I'm actually doing it. I'm trying to turn my life around and it's happening. Slowly but surely. I've decided to document my weight loss journey here on the blog in hopes that it'll keep me motivated and accountable.

Initially, I wanted to jump right into the numbers because honestly I hate reading or watching a video of someone's before and after photos or weight and it's allllll the way at the end but, since this is my first ever post on the matter, I want to share a tiny bit of my backstory before jumping in.

Nova Scotia Bucket List | 2 Years Later

I cannot believe it's been two years since I wrote up a bucket list of all the things I want to do in Nova Scotia. Furthermore, I cannot believe it's been two years later and I still have so little checked off my list..... 😐

That's alright though! I suppose bucket lists can take years to accomplish sometimes. Here is my updated Bucket List plus a few more things I've added that I'd like to tick off as well!
