I admit it. I am one of those people who updates their home decor with the seasons. Don’t judge me.

But here’s the reason – I LOVE Christmas decor. And after I drag it out for at least three months… ok four months, visit mind it seems necessary to give the other seasons a bit of recognition as well.

It’s taken years to collect enough items that most of the house can feel pretty festive. Why? Because I’m thrifty (aka cheap). So every last-week-of-December is highlighted by annual trips to the local garden centres where I can fill a cart with beautiful, order glorious, joy-inducing treasures to add to my Christmas box(es) in the basement at 60-75% off. There is no better feeling than scoring my favourite things at a steep discount!

When I posted photos this year, there were quite a lot of very kind comments, and even a few requests for help. A very nice compliment! Well, my primary advice is to do a little online research and find a theme you really like, be it bright colours, plaid, silver and blue, or whatever. For me, that is red poinsettias with gold and bronze accents, supported by lots of greenery and earthy fibres. You’ll notice some white thrown in for a little contrast as well – I’ve found I really love cable knit. Maybe when I add another level to my house it will be completely cozy-sweater themed!

Hi there! It’s been awhile… a long while, there actually. I think the trouble was this: while fashion and decor are fun to me, they aren’t parts of my life that really get my blood pumping and make me excited about what each day holds.

What does do that, is agriculture – how feeding people is changing, and where it’s headed as the Earth’s population continues to increase exponentially. Most every day, there is some meme or article coming across my social media feed attacking our food system and the people who ensure we are fed. And it’s hard, really hard, for me to see and read those because most of my family and clients work their butts off day in and day out in all weather to put food on our plates.

This lands me in some opportunities to share first-hand experience and educated knowledge with the 98% of North Americans who have not been so fortunate to be raised in the industry that feeds the world. Once in awhile, it ends me in a heated debate…

And so I’ve decided to re-focus this blog on what I am passionate about, and open the conversation with any of you who might have questions about agriculture or advocating for farmers and ranchers. Maybe I’ll even post a few of the more heated discussions for your entertainment, haha!
