For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you already know that Peter and I have embarked on the most adultiest adult thing ever – buying a house. I have to ask, why is it so damn difficult?! Sorry, I just had to get that out. We initially started the process looking at houses in […] Read more…

Puppy Shower Love

Those who follow me on Instagram already know that my baby girl, Agnes, is expecting her first litter later in September. Before she heads off to the breeder to have puppies, I wanted to give her a little send-off with the people who love her most. OK, it was really just Peter and my parents, […] Read more…

My head is full of dreams

If you know me outside of this blog, you know Coldplay are my favourite band. I mean, I love them more than *NSYNC, and that is HUGE!

Size Doesn’t Matter

Falling in love is the greatest thing in the world. Falling in love with a gentle giant from Ireland is even better!

Well, let’s talk…

To my bipolar disorder named Marv, I gave you a name all those years ago when I needed someone to scream at as my world crumbled around me. On the flip side, I’ve cheered you on when I’ve felt invincible. In reality, Marv, you have been both a blessing and a curse. When I was younger, I didn’t know […] Read more…
