Traveling with your dog

Friday, June 27, 2014 0 Permalink 0

Have dog. Must travel. I really despise when I meet someone (sorry friends of mine who have said this to me but this does go through my brain), "Oh I would just LOVE to get a dog but I couldn't, I still love traveling". I always think "So?". Just because you have a dog doesn't mean you can't travel. In fact, I travel in part so I can bring Nan. I love finding new places to explore and well she is a dog, so she does too! I am not really sure if this is just a topic that I think is interesting or if it is something that other people think about as well. Admittedly, I am a dog manic. I know that. Since getting Nan, my life has improved times a 1,000 (minimal estimate). Part of that is taking her with me. It is so much fun. It is harder ...

Dutch Vtwonen Magazine To Die For

When I was in Holland in April, my friend Eline showed me one of her favourite Dutch magazines that she subscribes to. Vtwonen. Like most Dutch designs, I loved it. Wood. White. Grey. Vintage mixed with new. Clean lines. Overall dreaminess. Can my next home just be a Vtwonen home? Group work station! It doesn't look like there is any room for me to actually work on that desk but to be honest, this is how my desk/dining table looks 90% of the time. Real Life. Those leather straps are awesome but not so sure about their functionality.... I liked the magazine so much I snapped pictures with my Iphone of past issues that Eline had laying around in her home. All images from Vtwonen Magazine (some from their website, some from the actual magazine that I snapped pictures of!).

I think I need to write a wee apology for my last blog post - not a real "I am really sorry for being honest" apology but an "I am sorry I was such a Debbie Downer" sort of apology. Full acknowledgment happening here.  When I sat down to write my last blog post Winter Battles, I wrote it thinking that sometimes seeing that other people are also struggling with different aspects of their lives at that exact moment helps to give me perspective, so maybe I should do it too. Reaching out can be a way to get something that I have been internalizing outta my own head... I absolutely did not intend to spread the depressive cheer - although after speaking with a few different people, seems to be what I did. Sorry. At my day job I help others to remove emphasis from the past and to shift ...
