Multitude Monday

Have you heard of Multitude Monday? On Mondays, I like to share ten things that I'm thankful for. It's a great way to start the week off on the right foot, whether by recording your list in a journal, on a blog, or simply in your head. I haven't taken the time to create a list since April, and it feels strange. Here's an attempt to get back on track, and it's a long list!

Daffodils in mason jars, vintage scales and cannisters - can a kitchen get any more cheerful?
Today, here are ten things that I'm currently thankful for:

671 - I spent the day Saturday at a cousin's lovely wedding. So excited for the two of them to start their journey together, and they planned a beautifully executed day. My brother's girlfriend is a make-up/aesthetician chicky and she made me glamorous for the day - a good smokey cat eye. Sad to say I didn't get any close-up photos. Trust me, it was cool ;)

672 - Dan and I took the day on Sunday as "us" time. We drove to a wildlife park and had the time of our lives. Seriously, we were both in our element. I took out the big old DSLR and my zoom lens and had a blast snapping shots of many an unsuspecting animal.

673 - We also took a trip out to our favourite little place, Great Village. It really is a great village, I'd live there on a dime. I snagged an adorable blue creamer with a bright yellow interior at one of my favourite antique shops. Who knows what I'll actually use the creamer to hold. Between not being a coffee drinker and being semi-lactose intolerant, chances are I won't fill it up with cream.

674 - Dan and I got to watch the newest Star Trek movie in 3-D in theatres last night. It was exciting! Dan's been slowly taking me over to the geek side, and I'm not complaining. Geeks are highly underrated. Forget blondes, geeks are the ones that have the most fun :)

675 - My littlest nephew turns two this week. He lives on the other side of the country so we'll have to send him our well wishes virtually, but I love that cheerful little boy to bits. I'm going to try and find a toddler-approved toy for him tomorrow to drop in the mail for him.

676 - I found summer employment! I'll be working at one of my favourite little lunch spots, a cafe/deli that serves delicious soups, salads and sandwiches. I start training on Wednesday and I hope to be there until school starts up again in September.

677 - Bit by bit, I'm checking things off my to-do list. Knowing something is hanging over your head, waiting to be finished is worse than actually doing the work. By this time next week, I'll have a relatively cleared to-do list and I can get on to the fun tasks!

678 - Making summer plans is one of my favourite ways to spend an evening. I can't wait to come up with a list of things to do this summer, from having bonfires to hiking each of the trails around the Cabot Trail. That's one of my goals: to hike each trail. There's a large range of difficulty levels, and there are lots of trails that I've never taken before. Should be an adventure for sure!

679 - I started a Couch 2 5K program this week. After walking regularly for the past two weeks, I felt ready to begin the process. I've never been a runner. Like, never. Even in junior high school, I avoided running like the plague. My favourite gym teachers were the ones that didn't force us to participate, haha. I've got a long road ahead of me but I'm excited about the journey to a healthier me! I'd love your support along the way. 

680 - Before choosing an outfit to wear to the wedding this past weekend, I pulled out my summer clothes and found lots of little gems that I had forgotten about. Isn't that the best feeling? I also purchased a Jessica Simpson tribal print maxi dress at Value Village for $7! Score! Now all I need is warm weather.

What are you thankful for today? Share a little tidbit of your life with me.

Happy Monday!


  1. Loved this post. I am so, so, so proud of you for doing Couch to 5K. You know I'll support you with this! I feel like I caught up on your life reading this post. I miss you! <3 Heidi.

    1. Thanks so much, Heidi! I know I'll have your support. xo

  2. Wow, good luck with the running!! It's tough but if your body agrees with running (which mine didn't, sadly - bad joints) then it feels great, too. So I hear. :) And I did use the "Couch to 5K" app for a while and liked it a lot.

    Your lists are so cheerful, and filled with lovely, simple things. Thanks for the reminder to live in the moment. :)
