Amongst the laughter, tears, nature, movement and meals, deep connections were formed. Deep connections to what we thought were strangers upon first arrival, but whom we soon discovered were long lost sisters. Reconnecting to ourselves in ways many of us longed for without knowing it was missing. Thank you to all of the wonderful women who took the time this weekend, and to those of us who have come before, and will come after. Special thanks to @allymaz for creating #ladyvana and thanks to her and @maddyert for holding the space for us this weekend.
Happy Valentines Day! There are so many types of love to celebrate today. Romantic love, familial love, self love, friend love, the list goes on. Hope you’re all celebrating love today and every day with those near and far. Missing cuddles with these cuties today and every day 💕
Daily gratitude is one of the most important practices I have learned. Even if some days it’s for the seemingly simple things like getting out of bed and feeling your heart beat another day. For we are all blessed to be here, no matter what our circumstances may be. Today I am especially grateful to be living in this beautiful country we call Canada. For the trees that ground me, the mountains that provide me strength, and the water that soothes my soul.
Had the most magical day in the mountains today. Learning all about trust. This big word that keeps coming up for me. Trusting that I have the skills to do what’s before me. Trusting that even though I can’t see two feet in front of me, I’ll be ok. Trusting that through the cloud cover there are sunny skies. And most importantly, trusting that others around me are there to support. I may not always feel their presence, but they are there ✨
Had the perfect day in Winnipeg with my favourite little ladies. I’m not going to miss the cold weather, but will miss how warm my ❤️ feels in their presence. So incredibly grateful for everyone in my life, and wish I had more time to say goodbyes...but I know I’ll be back for visits. Winnipeg always has that way of drawing me back. For now, I’m looking forward to many adventures on the west coast!
When people ask me what it is I love about working for Lululemon, it's hard to list just one thing...
•We sell amazing athletic gear 🏃♀️
•Involved in anything community related 🤝
•Monthly budget to get sweaty 💦
•Supportive of growth and development 🙋
The list goes on...but the most important thing to me??? I've never worked with a group of so many like-minded people before. Traveling to Calgary this week for #purposeandpractice reminded me that this is company and country wide. Made some instant friends to do some of the things I love most with...Thank you @aliveandlovingit and @kaitlinmcintyre for the 6am 🥊class!
Physically I am exhausted and sore, but emotionally, mentally and spiritually I am so energized after this weekend! So much gratitude for everyone who came together and made #prairielovefestival the magic that it was. Teachers, attendees, vendors, sponsors, volunteers...the list goes on. Special thanks to @prairieyogi and @lauraawittig for making this all happen 💕🙏🏻✨
What a great birthday! Apparently 35 isn't so bad...but one of the greatest gifts I could have received was celebrating with some amazing family and friends. Thanks to all who made my day extra special, especially my grandparents who made the trip all the way from Victoria! So grateful and blessed to have such wonderful people in my life, both near and far.
Took a digital detox for the weekend...started off because I received a notification that I hit my data limit for the month, but quickly became grateful because it forced me to be in the moment and disconnect from social media. Got grounded in the mountains, and came back to the prairies with a new love and passion for this gorgeous country we get to call home.
Another girls weekend has come and gone...managed to capture this beautiful sunset on Saturday after a day of being cooped up in the cabin catching up. Reflecting on my drive home and realized we have been friends for 20 years! So crazy to think about all that has happened throughout the years, and yet we manage to make time for these annual weekends to connect with one another. Thanks for being such a wonderful host @carolfenner There is something so very special about old friends...hoping for many more years to come! 💕
I've been seeing so many peacocks lately that I had to look up the meaning, and was instantly reminded that this universe gives us exactly what we need to hear when we ask. The peacock symbolizes integrity, and is a reminder of the beauty we can achieve when we show our true colours. Note to self: be true to yourself always. I spent so many years trying to fit the mould of who I thought others wanted me to be, and it was exhausting. New goals: authenticity in every area of life. Time to be proud of who I am, just like this gorgeous peacock ✌🏼
"Let silence take you to the core of life" ~ Rumi Been working an insane schedule lately, so taking time to disconnect from the external world and connect to the internal has been crucial. Just taking five minutes to close my eyes, connect to my breath and quiet my thoughts on a daily basis has helped me remember what my purpose in life is. #meditation#wellness#yoga#wpg 📷 & 📿@barnswallowdesign
Another awesome sweat session this morning at #novemberproject with these babes! So grateful for motivating friends to workout with 🏃♀️💦💪🏼 @mpantel @jaimeppeterson Yes, that is grass on my head...they literally had us crawling on the ground. Thanks @novemberprojectywg for the workout!
