You had me at “Aloha”

I’m not trying to fast forward time but I have to admit, around this time of year my palms start to get really itchy – a unique sign that I’m either nervous or excited lol. I can confirm, however, that I am pretty darn excited because August is just around the corner and is my most favourite month of the year for so many reasons. But the reason that tops it all is that August is the month that I married my very best friend and the love of my life and every year our anniversary gift to each other is to explore a new destination together. I am so SO excited to say that this year we’re mixing a bit of the new with a bit of the familiar. We are going to Australia and Hawaii!!! Continue reading “You had me at “Aloha””

Nike asked YouTube personality and filmmaker, Casey Neistat, to make a movie of what it means to #makeitcount. And this is what he did…

Press play and enjoy.

The Nike brand was named after the ancient Greek goddess of victory, Nike. She was often depicted with having wings, which was the inspiration behind Nike swoosh logo.

So it comes as no surprise to me that Nike would want to make a movie of what it means to #makeitcount. It’s one of my life goals to see as much of this beautiful world as I can so this video truly resonates with me. When I travel to new and interesting destinations I feel like I’m living life victoriously.

Are you spending your time the way you want to? Do you feel like you’re living victoriously? Or rather, do you feel like you’re #winning? If not, what are you waiting for? In the spirit of Nike – Just Do It! Let’s #makeitcount together.

“Time and tide wait for no (wo)man”

Note: I added the “wo”. But have you ever heard of this quote before? The origins of it are uncertain but in my research I found that the earliest record of it is from St. Marher, 1225, “And te tide and te time þat tu iboren were, schal beon iblescet” which essentially means that no one has the power to stop time making time one of the most valuable things in the world.
