Instagram and I have a love/ hate relationship.
I like sharing tidbits of my life here and there, and seeing what others up to.
Once in awhile, a picture will tweak something in me that I’m not proud of. Sometimes the perfectly sculpted bodies in perfectly arranged yoga poses, or the perfectly nutritious food perfect families are enjoying, inspire a full-on meltdown (last Sunday).

I’ve spent a lot of time wishing away moments and trying to “fix” things. Those are times I’ll never get back.
But these days I’m working on something new: being present, being here and now, and soaking up the moments so that I can remember many fondly one day.
And so that this will never again be my truth:

My favourite moment this week:
The last few days have been fuzzy – I have felt fuzzy and my pics are fuzzy. But T.A.N Coffee on Baldwin was great, as was my date with Jenny. Isn’t she the cutest? Mmm… cooffee. mxo

Charlie sure knows how to relish.
Friday. Voodoo Child. Random run-ins with great friends. Bliss. Happy weekend! xo
Old stomping grounds today. Mercatto Americano misto. Es bueno.
