Each morning the surfer grabbed his board, waxed it as every surfer knows to do, put on his wet suit and headed to the beach. There he sat waiting, waiting for the perfect wave. Other surfers went in the water riding all sorts of waves, getting better with each one, gaining speed and balance, even Read More →


As a little girl in school, I remember our teachers made us do little projects customized for each holiday theme, you know, little knick knacks to give to our parents as presents: happy farther’s day cards, a little snow man for the fridge during christmas time, a jewellery box made out of popsicle sticks for Read More →


Spring is full of casual weekends of dinner plans, coffee dates and the mandatory booty shake, as per weekend status and all. Our bodies are telling us to start warming up for another super-fun-and-crazy summer, so we begin to partake in a couple shenanigans until our senses have been tuned in to only the finest.

A friend who’s been married for 34 years told me that the secret to a long marriage is to never stop courting your spouse. He said it’s important to keep being affectionate towards one another, to kiss, and to keep the romance alive. As with everything else in life, relationships need upkeep.

The Shoe that doesn't Fit
