Silly kitty 🐱 so excited about being fed people food that she literally ran right into David’s finger. She did eventually clean this off. #raretreat #16yrsold #elderlycat #elderlycatsofinstagram
Believe it or not, this is from a REAL ad, from around the 1920s. In case you missed it, flavours were added to the LEAD paint on the wall and children were encouraged to lick them. 
Times change and what we promote as safe changes too. The more we know, the more we realize a lot of the things we put into and on our bodies aren’t always safe or good for us. It’s time to take active choices in the things we KNOW are bad for us. Both for our children and ourselves. It’s going to take more effort, yes, but the payoff will be in the future. #educateyourself #saferchoices #whatsinyourskincare #whatsinyourfood #yycmom

I love the view of Calgary from above. The mountains, the foothills, the city and the prairies all in one view.  #yycmom #yyclove #windowseat #myhouseisdownthere
A 6 am flight calls for essentials, particularly since I had only 5 hrs sleep last night. @starbucks green tea latte 🍵 provides a bit of a kick. Noise cancelling headphones 🎧 because I’m losing my hearing and want to save what I have. Steel toe boots 👢 cause that’s the only shoes I have right now and it helps with travelling with only a carry on. And patience just because. #yycmom #worktrip #goinghome

Hello #cranbrookairport!  So happy to be getting on a plane ✈️ tonight to start my journey home. @nelsonbritishcolumbia was gorgeous. Looking forward to getting home tomorrow. This has been the most challenging trip in a while. #travelhiccup #drove8hrs #worktrip #yycmom

Have you recharged your battery lately? 
Today one of our cars died. We tried boosting it, but even with time, the old battery was just not going 
to recharge. The car hadn’t been started since before Christmas. Since before the cold weather. That’s 
a long time to leave a battery, especially in the cold. 
It’s the same with your life. If you neglect something long enough, you will feel the impact. Friendships, 
weight, health, mental clarity, your career, your relationship with your partner and family, your 
memory. 
Over the holidays, you likely recharged many things, but then neglected other things. I know I did. I ate 
treats like nobody’s business and last week my pants were tighter than they were a few weeks earlier. 
But I got more sleep, I spent time with my family, I saw friends and spent time reading books, instead of 
Facebook. 
The key is to maintain some balance. This is one of the most challenging things for me, and I haven’t 
figured out how to do this with a new job yet. I travel for work. I have a passion business educating 
others about what’s in their products. I always am working. I spend too much time scrolling Facebook. I 
leave little time for recharging me. I love what I do, but when I hit my wall, I smash into it and then end 
up sleeping tons and neglecting everything. 
How do you maintain balance? Do you do what I do, running at 1000% until you run out of steam? Or 
do you manage to legitimately maintain something that resembles a more balanced life? #balancedlife #yycmom #runtilidrop #needabetterway

Took advantage of the warmer weather to go skating today! #yycmom #yyctoday #bownessparkyyc #bownesspark #bownesslagoon
What simple choices are you taking to reduce your toxic exposure?  Every day we are exposed to well over 120 ingredients, some of which are linked with cancer, some of which we know nothing about and just a few are safe. The scary part is that these are only ingredients we put on our skin!  I am not even counting ingredients we put into our mouth.  Start with making small choices that are quite simple to help decrease the number of harmful ingredients.  What choices have you made to make this shift?  Were you aware you could make choices like this?  What choices have I made?  So many. But the majority of them were simple. The first was getting a cast iron pan. Want to know more about my choices?  Keep watching this space. #simplechoices #decreasetoxicload #decreasetoxicexposure #yycmom #startsmall #onechoiceatatime #calgarymoms

The kiddo doesn’t have free access to our iPads so is working on cracking the code of what the password is. @davidsandbrand demonstrated how many different combinations she’d need to try. Her guesses are hilarious!  #yycmom #codebreaker #isthishomeschooling #sheispersistent
