Oh Happy Days #1



Walking/jogging everyday with mom-finally feel motivated to lose weight and actually stick with it! I've only lost 1.5 pds in 2 weeks so far but hey! Its better than nothing :)

Starting my explore nova scotia series- I've been wanting to start this series on my blog forever now! We had such fun exploring downtown Halifax on Saturday!

Getting my tax return back- I did very well on my taxes this year! So its been a great weekend of treating myself.

A major loan being paid off- I don't think anything has made us quite as happy as finding out a loan we've been paying for five years now is completely paid off!!! Such a wonderful feeling!

Purchasing a fire pit- I see lots of warm lazy nights sitting by the fire in my near future.

Rekindling an old friendship- A few years ago I had a falling out with one of my best friends. I decided to man up and send her a message this week and we've been chatting and made a plan to meet up when I head back home to Cape Breton at the end of the month! So excited!

  3. Aw this is lovely! Thats awesome about getting on the healthy wagon - it's so hard isn't it? I feel like I'm not doing well this week, need to get up early tomorrow and go for a jog. There just aren't enough hours in the day! Cooking some delicious salmon for dinner was definitely my happy moment today :) xx

  5. Congrats on all of your accomplishments, that's great!! I've been trying to run more too lately, and I feel so much better! And that is so awesome about paying off the loan - I bet you feel so much more relaxed! Reconnecting with old friends is seriously one of the best things as well. I hope all continues to go great with you and your life! :)

  7. My bf and I just started to really get into jogging about 5 weeks ago and I'm really enjoying it! I always feel so relaxed and happy afterwards, and sleepy so I get a great nights sleep haha!
    I love local travel! I love getting out and about in Belgium to explore, it's extra nice to have my blog and have somewhere to share the adventures too.
