Dear 2016,

Dear 2016, I stood out on the edge of 2015 with a steady gaze looking towards you, contemplating the mysteries ahead of me. I could see you through the trees and knew the only way was forward through the shadows.  I was ready for you, prepared and determined to explore your secrets. I had a plan for you 2016, I had a plan for me, I guess you had a plan of your own. Straight through I approached you, the clock striking midnight in turn. Once I reached you-you turned the path beneath me. This was a strange forest…

Lessons in Following my Dreams & NaNoWriMo Win

I’m back! Did you miss me? Did you even notice I was gone? Regardless, I missed you my blogging pals and I am happy to be back in action just in time for this wonderful Christmas season. Yay! As you may know,  from my previous post, I have been enveloped in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) during the month of November. A task that took me begrudgingly away from my blog and all of you. However, this was the kind of break that I really benefited from, I stretched my creative limitations and expanded the barriers of what…

Hello November & NaNoWriMo

Hello, November! November is such a strange month don’t you think? Sandwiched between the beautiful and spooky month of October and the festive and busy month of December. Not only is this month the middle child of two pretty awesome siblings it is also a little bit of a reject when it comes to the weather. Snow, rain, fog, sun, wind. Anything and everything here in St. John’s. Alright alright, enough shitting on November. There are some really great things to look forward to this month also. One of them being NaNoWriMo. You may be wondering…

Ramblings on Risk

Good day beloved readers. I am looking to share some rambling thoughts with you today. I am looking for some advice and wisdom from you and myself… Deep breath, and here we go. The entire meaning of the above quote is all that has been on my mind lately. An idea of risk, decisions, and potential opportunities lost. It seems I am in a purgatory of sorts. A place in between action, change and risk and a place of comfort, stability, and normalcy. The last thoughts before you step onto that new path that branches from your current direction…

Bloggers Wanted!

Hello, dear blogging pals! So unless you have been living under a rock or in some fancy cave you have no doubt heard of PINTEREST! Yes, that’s right Pinterest. It’s time to get out there people, it is time for all of us to join this big Pinterest world together! As an avid Pinterester I have been using this for years for my own personal use, but now the winds of change are a blowing and I feel like it’s time to branch out there.

Life Updates

A long overdue hello blog friends! For those of you who regularly check in with Scale it Simple you may have noticed that I have been MIA for almost two months now. Whoa time flies! Where have I been you may ask? Well admittedly I have had other priorities ahead of blogging, that mixed with a dry spell of writing inspiration and BAM… two months flew by. I miss sharing  positive vibes and adventures and I have also missed keeping up with the happenings of all you beautiful bloggers. So I am back to check in before another short…

March Goals

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. – Charles Dickens” Many exciting things are happening in March. First up the clocks go ahead! Which means that we gain some much needed and deserved sunshine. And when you live in the cold harsh north that extra hour means a lot! It also means Easter! Which means chocolate, and those of you who are better acquainted with my blog know how much I love that stuff. Another  reason…

Welcome 2016 you Son of a Gun

So 2016 eh? I may be a bit late in sharing my opinions, hopes and plans for this coming year as I experienced an unplanned break from blogging. I had a grand holiday don’t get me wrong, I visited family, was blessed in receiving many beautiful gifts and enjoyed a new years vacation inside a vacation to a cabin far out of town with my love. All in all, it was a beautiful and relaxing vacation. Minus of course those 3 days in which all of the joy left my poor deflated heart  (being a bit dramatic) when…
