Calgary Expo 2016

  The 11th annual Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo saw 103,500 people this year, only 500 short of their record attendance of last year. It is a world class event and the organizers do a better job each and every year. The hubby and I were there for a bit […]

We Day Inspires Change Makers

Another We Day has come and gone from Alberta. The dome filled up with enthusiastic students from all over the province this past Tuesday and I was once again among the lucky ones asked to attend with the crew from TELUS. This year there was the same incredible energy, the […]

Have unwanted stuff? Read this.

Oh boy do I ever love a good thrift shop. I really, really, really love a good thrift shop! It’s a treasure hunt like no other and you just never know what you’ll find when you start looking. When I head to Value Village I scour the shelves for things […]

Calgary Events – Harvest Moon

This past Saturday I had the pleasure of attending Harvest Moon, an evening of good food, music and community. This year, Harvest Moon came together in celebration of a new Community Food Centre scheduled to open in Forest Lawn early 2016 in partnership with The Alex. We often think of Calgary […]

Calgary Profile: Willow Park Village

It’s not often that I have a day like the day I spent at Willow Park Village. That morning I picked up a Mercedes to test drive for an unrelated assignment. It set the tone for what was to come and so I settled into luxury and headed out to […]

BBQ Adventures in Calgary

I wished to #EatMoreBBQ so I opened the lid to our decrepit propane grill and promptly closed it shut again. We finished last year’s summer with no bbqing on the deck because the holes in the burners were so large we basically had a huge fireball to grill over. There […]

Three Unique Ways to Add Colour Outside

Adding colour is one of the easiest ways to customize your home.  When we moved into this builder’s beige new build house, one of the first things we did was add colour—on the walls, with our furnishings and with things like rugs and curtains. Interior colour choices are easier because […]

Come See Me! #cilontheroad

Remember when you were a kid and you got a new box of crayons? You’d open them up and smell their waxy smell and the possibilities felt absolutely endless.  You could do anything with those colours.  Make anything. Rainbows, unicorns or flying pigs even.  Some how, that endless enthusiasm for […]

The Whirlwind of Calgary Expo

Saturday we spent the day at Calgary Expo and man oh man, it was a whirlwind!  We dedicated ourselves to walking the floor to lap up as much as we could.  While sitting in panels would have been nice for our feet, we just didn’t have time to dedicate to […]
