Autumn changes

Good morning friends,

It’s Autumn in Nova Scotia. It’s my secret favorite season. Summer is wonderful, we have the beach, lots of sun etc. Not to sound cliché, but there’s something about crisp falling leaves, pumpkin scents galore and comfy sweaters. We are house shopping, and I must admit I’m a sucker for a wood fireplace. In my head I see warm cozy evenings, hot chocolate and a dog wrapped around my feet. Ok, so it’s totally cliché – please don’t judge 

Best daydream ever.

I have fond memories of Autumns with Newton. He loved when we piled the leaves high under the backyard Maple trees, morphing into the “Hulk” before our eyes and charging through our neat piles. He could do this for hours. So many laughs.

We found our new house, we have an accepted offer. It has giant tree in the backyard full of leaves, a fireplace in the living room and yes – a farm down the road that sells pumpkins. Amazeballs.

 

While I’m excited to enter the next phase, it saddens me to think of how much Newt would have loved this place. A huge hayfield full of long grass, a great backyard with much needed shade for his black fur coat he wore year round.

 

This is a wonderful place to make new memories with new two and four footed friends, without forgetting the old.

Cheers,

Puppy cupcakes for all!

Too bad you’re not all closer, or I’d share!

One year Tomorrow.

Oct. 12, 2013 will mark my one year anniversary of my blog – Dailyspro.Image

My first entry was posted October 12th, 2012 – titled “Hello World”. It’s slightly embarrasing amazing to read back and see how far this blog has come. Not just in reference to writing style – but also in life.

Where does the time go?

One year ago, I had no idea what was about to happen. How my writing would go from whimsical writing about “Cross-fit” (pfff – that was short-lived) and new adventures – to a form of therapy for me after we lost Newton.

I had no idea how many of you would speak up, message me, email me and lift my spirits by sharing your own stories and positivity.

 

I had no idea how much I needed an outlet like this.

 

I had no idea that I would dive head-first into a new community, that accepted me with open arms.  

 

 

I had no idea I would have an online family.

 

One of you lovely people shared with me, some great advice. It’s advice that I found very helpful, so I hope you don’t mind me sharing.

“If you’re a writer – write. If you’re a painter – paint. If you’re a dancer – dance. Don’t ever stop doing what you love. It doesn’t have to be great – not even good. If it helps you during any point in your life express yourself?           Get it out!”

 

So, in the spirit of Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend.

I really tried to find a way to clearly communicate how much I have appreciated all the support- however what it really comes down to is:

I truly want to thank you – all of you – for being so freakin’ (p)awesome.
