Things I'm Loving Lately 21

1. YOU

Seriously guys, I was absolutely blown away by the comments, messages and emails I received on my latest post. To say I'm going through the most difficult time of my life feels like an understatement. I read (and re-read) many of your comments to help get me through some of the toughest times. My family and friends have been my rocks.  I don't know if I will ever be able to say thank you enough. I'm slowly figuring out what my new life is going to look like and to know I have your love and support really helps! Thank you for helping me focus on living in the light.


I was tagged in this instagram BE HAPPY post by my girlfriend Tawnya and I really needed the opportunity to really think about what makes my heart happy. It was easy to think of 10 things and I could definitely have kept going. I tagged 20 of my friends, and favourite bloggers, and loved hearing what makes them happy too! 

Here's my list:

 1⃣ My son, London. He can always make me smile. 2⃣ My job. I work with, and get to meet, some incredible people. 3⃣ My family and friends. When you're going through the most difficult thing in your life you realize who has your back no matter what. I love my little circle. 4⃣ Running. My happy place. 5⃣ Hugs. The tight and right kind. 6⃣ Traveling. I love exploring new places and I'm definitely due for another trip to NYC. 7⃣ Reading. Whether it's a good book, a magazine or an article, I love losing myself in a story. 8⃣ Flowers. They smell amazing and can instantly brighten my day. 9⃣ Honesty. Saying what's on your mind and knowing others are soon the same. It's good for the soul. 10 A new playlist. There are so many good songs out there right now. I'm especially loving Ed Sheeran (swoon!)


This isn't something new, and shouldn't be a surprise, but running continues to be such a good thing for me especially lately. It allows me to get out of my head for awhile. Plus, that runner's high is hard to duplicate.



My best friend Court is the BEST when it comes to presents. She shops, year-round, and picks up things as she sees them (so smart, I need to do this!) Anyway, she gave me this gorgeous jewelry clutch for my birthday. It wasn't until a few days later she asked me if I saw the necklace inside... I hadn't! I've worn it almost every day since. 


I am so happy for Court, her husband Bart and their little boy Brooks. This week, Court found out they are expecting a girl. I have been thinking a lot about my life plan lately and realizing I have to let go of some things I really want, at least for now, and that includes more children. Court's news snapped me right out of my funk. I could not be happier for them and I can't wait to spoil Quinn! I love her so much already!

What are your loving lately?


  1. I totally forgot you tagged me for the happy post, I'm getting on it right away!
    I'm so glad you could find comfort and support through your family, friends and online friends. It's always when you go through a hard time you learn how much support you have behind you. You are an amazing and strong person and you will get through anything.

  2. Big hugs to you. Just read your other post. Here's to moving on and embracing the new adventures ahead.

  3. That outfit is stunning on you.<3

  4. You look amazing! LOVE that necklace too! So much to look forward to! :)
