Taking Time

This month I was lucky to interview local mama and registered nurse, Leilani Levesque. A woman who I look up to and who always comes to mind when I am striving to find balance as a mama in my own life. I first met Leilani on a home visit when we first had our son.

November 2020 Astrology

November is marked with intensity and momentum as the sun moves through the sign of Scorpio and into Sagittarius. The energy of Scorpio is about death, rebirth, regeneration and transformation.

Knowing Versus Living

Most of us can easily list off all the things we need to do in order to take care of ourselves, but are we really doing it? Is the holistic in nature? In my experience we tend to be very good at knowing what to do and struggle with the actual living it part.

The Snap Election

As I write this we are a mere week away from election results, and I think we can all agree that predicting election outcomes is a fool’s game. I do know though, that after six years in local government my voting behaviour is forever changed.
