Happy Father's Day! What better way to show dad your love than joining Corbs and Becky in the kitchen and whipping up what they swear is a "delicious, showstopping, easy-as Father's Day Cake" couretsy of Half Baked Harvest.

June seems like a nice month for a challenge. How does completing 100 reps of different movements each day throughout the month sound?

You read that right, the courage to be ordinary. Not the strongest, fastest, smartest, prettiest, or best. Ordinary and good enough.

OH Molly! She’s one of those dogs who everyone falls in love with the moment they meet her. She’s a Portugese Water Dog with the kindest eyes and the sweetest soul. She oozes with happiness and love, putting a smile on any stranger’s face.

Although Molly spends most of her time in Fernie, she also hits the open sea on her dad’s sailboat. Her favourite sport is paddle boarding, too. Talk about a water dog! As a professional cuddler, pleaser and avid traveller, she’s living the life she deserves.

Cooking With Corbs is back, and will be coming to you once a month until school begins in the fall. This week, Corbs and Becky embark on a journey to make a delicious Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake! The perfect time to practice, as it will make a decadent dessert for Father’s Day this June!

They're back, and this time with a household favourite - brownies!

Who doesn't love waffles?! This week, Becky and Corb whip up a healthy and tasty batch of waffles, that could last up to two weeks depending on your appetite! For this recipe you will need a food processor and waffle iron. Make sure to post your photos or videos and to use #cookingwithcorbs #itsgivertime #ferniefix to be entered in the Mother's Day draw for a wicked t-shirt from Giv'er Shirt Works and some cupcakes from Becky's Sweetcakes.

Chili, short for Chilcotin, is a well-known long time canine community member. She was adopted from the BCSPCA as a pup and she’s been calling Fernie home for the past 13 years. Back in the day, Chili used to start almost every morning by trotting over to her neighbours’ houses and jumping on their beds so she could sleep in with them. Mornings have never been her thing. 

This is a distinctive time in all of our lives. Very few people alive today have lived through a global pandemic before now, and certainly none of the currently pregnant or newly pregnant people have. We are all navigating this together and for the very first time so we don’t know whether or not there is a “right” or “best” way to do it and if there is, what that might be.

Whether we are aware of it or not, movement is a form of medicine and staying active helps reduce stress and anxiety. Getting your heart rate up and sweating once a day releases the feel good endorphins that I’m going to go ahead and say, we could probably all use right about now.
