WCW meets WSW

Hey all! Last week had me MIA again, because of a terrible case of strep throat – or as I like to call it: mini mono. Because it knocked me flat out! And I am not entirely healed up yet, so this is going to be a quick, but oh-so-needed shout-out post going out to… […]

On Being

And I’m back again… later than planned. But as my dad always says: Better late than never. For a few reasons, the last couple of weeks of summer were a bit bumpy, so I thought I would start fresh the week after Labour Day. Get back into the blog, get back into a that post-summer […]

A is for Adventure

Kicking off the weekly edition of #WorldSavingWednesday are the awesome folks behind: A for Adventure! What exactly is A for Adventure, you ask? It’s actually a lot of things, including: a children’s book, some swag, a bi-weekly podcast, some beautiful photos and videos… but at the heart of it, it’s a group of wonderful guys with […]
