I’m baaaack!

Hellllllooooo!

Wow, guys. Wow. It’s been like, a million years since my last blog post. Life sometimes gets in the way of blogs though, but I really wanted to update and let my lovely followers know what’s been going on the last few months.

Last time I updated, I was a couple months pregnant and Mike and I were engaged. I’m now 7 months pregnant and Mike and I are MARRIED! Gasp! I know, I know.

It all happened so fast. We decided that we didn’t want a huge wedding. Not even a small wedding. We wanted to elope. And boy, did we. This past May, we went to Paris for 16 days and while we were there, got married beneath the Eiffel Tower. We were married on May 28 at 6pm (Paris time) and it was absolutely perfect for us.

wSo now, we’re married and in two months going to have a beautiful little baby! My pregnancy has been going well. I’ve had some painful times. Some restless times. Some crazy times. But also lots of great and wonderful times. Baby is kicking like crazy all the time! I also haven’t gained a whole lot of weight, and still working out and doing my yoga! I seem to have these bursts of energy through the day, which I take advantage of. I’m 7 months pregnant and my belly has finally just popped and STILL people don’t know I’m preggy!

baby4All in all, it’s been a crazy year! And on top of all of that, Mike and I are moving! We’re staying in the same city, just wanting more space and moving soon, which is stressful with a capital stress!

So, that’s that. I’m sure there is way more, but that will be for another post 😉

Love you. Miss you.

Dear Diary,

Today, I have a sad.

I miss my sweetheart. My darling. My dollface.

I miss Mike.

You see, dear diary, we came to Calgary to be with my family for Easter and I decided to stay a week or so to visit more with my family. Mike hasn’t even been gone 30 hours yet, and I’ve been in tears on and off missing him.

Maybe it’s just me or maybe it’s the baby-mones, but whatever it is, it’s AWFUL! It’s always nice to be missed, but it’s never nice to be the one missing someone.

I loves him.

Some people, most people, may say that I’m way too romance driven and to them I say, screw you. I like being romantical. I love love. I really do. It’s the most chaotic and calm, crazy and wonderful, complex and simple thing in the world. Many desire the true form of it and very few get to really live it. I’m one of those few.

Mike never wanted to marry or have children before he met me. I knew this before we dated, yet something still drew me to him. A force stronger than any Star Wars movie could ever create. Marriage and children were always important to me and something I knew I wanted, yet the moment I met him, I knew that I may need to keep that on the back burner for some time. And I was ok with that.

It didn’t take very long when Mike told me that our relationship was different. I was different. He was different. And he said he knew that it wasn’t until meeting me that he knew marriage and children were a good idea. Simply because I was “the one”.

Being somebody’s “one”, is a very special role. You have to cherish it. Nurture it. And give as much back to it as you get. Which is exactly what I do.

We’re now engaged and expecting our first baby this September. This baby of ours has no idea how much his/her Mommy and Daddy love eachother. How much we care for them already. And how we’re one of those lucky couples that everyone gets jelly of.

Mike is my happy place. I care for him in a way that I for reals, can’t even describe. And if that makes me “too” sappy and romantic, then I’ll take it 😉

Gasp! We’re Engaged! And going to Paris! And having a baby!

The title says it all! Mike and I recently got engaged, this past April 5 🙂 He proposed with THE most perfect and beautiful ring of my life.

As some of you know already, we’re expecting our first baby this coming September and couldn’t be happier. Now, we’ve decided to pack up for Paris next month! We’ve never been and we are beyond excited.

My pregnancy is going well, I’m almost 18 weeks and STILL have yet to gain much weight or even much of a belly. But I’m enjoying it all very much.

Just wanted to keep my loyal followers up to speed on life and why I haven’t been updating as much! I sowwie!

I hope you’re all as blessed as I am and I wish you all the most lovely Easter weekend with your friends and family.

Big News!

Ello everyone!

I know, I know. It’s been like a million years. I took a little break from updating my blogs. Alot has been going on these past few months though, so I think I have an ok excuse 😉

First of all, I’ve been teaching more yoga classes which was great. I love what I do and that’s a wonderful thing to be able to say. Second, I’ve been trying to help my sweetheart, Mike, achieve his dream in writing his very own graphic novel. We’ve been bouncing ideas off of eachother and I know that whatever he comes up with, will be great.

And finally… drum roll… Mike and I are so very happy to announce that we’re having a baby! Yep, that’s right. Yours truly is preggy 🙂 I’m almost 11 weeks now and so far, it’s been a draining but amazing experience. I’ve had “morning” sickness all day, everyday since about week 5 and if anything, I seemed to have LOST weight. But I can’t wait to start showing, and I can’t wait for September when our little one is due to arrive. Mike and I (and our families) are so beyond happy and we can’t wait to be parents. I couldn’t have asked for a better father for my little one 🙂

So I hope you can all forgive me for not updating as much, but like I said, life has got in the way. In the most loveliest of ways ❤

Ps. This is how we announced our news on Facebook. Stick Dinosaur style 😉

Some Days

Some days we’re off. Some days we’re on.
Some days we’re weak. Some days we’re strong.
Some days we’re happy. Some days we’re sad.
Some days we’re feeling, a little bit mad.
Some days we’re flexible. Some days we’re tight.
Some days we worry, with all of our might.
But always remember, that no matter the day,
You’re always the light, that will brighten my way.

I wrote this because it can be interpreted in many ways. Your light could be your faith, your family, your spouse, your children, your friends or even your yoga practice.

Let’s Find A Cure! Rawrrr!

DSC07908

Most of you don’t know this, but my lovely boyfriend Mike was diagnosed several years ago with a Parkinsonism called Dopa Responsive Dystonia. It’s a movement disorder that involves involuntary muscle contractions, tremors, and other uncontrolled movements due to lack of dopamine in the brain. With proper medication, he can calm his symptoms and is more or less, a pretty normal guy. However, for the past year we have noticed a change in his symptoms which we, and doctor’s, fear to be Early Onset il_fullxfull.394122359_39v2Parkinsons Disease. 

He’s still the normal, sarcastic, talented guy I’ve always adored, but as this disease continues in him, symptoms will worsen with time and that’s why we need to find a cure for this, right meow!

I love this boy. He’s truly my everything, and I refuse to sit back and watch this diagnosis get the best of us. I won’t let that happen. He’s too smart, too talented and too young to be going through this and to think that who he is right now could slip away over time, breaks my heart into a million pieces. I can’t, I won’t, I SHANT let that happen! (Yep. I totes said shant. And totes.) 

Mike and I are taking part in the 2013 Parkinson Alberta Step ‘N’ Stride Walk, this September in Edmonton. Please go to our comic regarding it, read the FAQ and if you can, help us by sponsoring our walk. If you can’t help us in that way, please leave a comment or re-blog this to your own page and keep us in your thoughts and/or prayers.

Mike and I are a strong couple. We’ve been through so much together and I couldn’t ask for a better relationship. Please, help us find a cure.

YTT – Day 3

Today we learned more about Ayurveda, Doshas and healthy nutrition! I really enjoyed it all and found it very fascinating. Our class is privileged in the fact that we’re taking part in this teacher training in an organic/whole foods market, greenhouse, spa and yoga studio. (They have fantastic lattes too! For the days where your mind is overwhelmed with info and your body is aching from all of the asanas poses.) So we were able to take a tour and check out what foods, herbs and supplements are best. It was a great experience and will change the way I shop I think. Our teacher was a great one too. He knew all there was to know about the Ayurvedic lifestyle, as he lives it himself everyday.

We also watched the documentary “What the bleep do we know?”. (That’s legit what it’s called. Google it.) And that was one crazy yet interesting movie! It was all about quantum physics! We then had to ask ourselves, how does quantum physics relate to Ayurveda, if it all? I saw so many parallels between the two, it was amazing. It was so funny too, because on one of Mikes and I’s first dates, we sat at the park and he started telling me about the other worlds and possible parallel universes. So learning more about that today, brought me back to that day with him. Sitting at the park, talking about the worlds.

We also did two yoga sessions! I am so exhausted and sore, but it’s a good burn 😉 All in all, it was a very interesting day.

(Ps. I just realized I’m starting to speak “yogi’ more and more! The word asana means pose.)
