People Knew.

She is Fierce
Managing Memories & Moving Forward with #MeToo. I did not want to get out of bed this morning, yet I haven't slept for days. I wade through memories, waking up my past to consciously review the countless times I would say Me Too.  The list (as it is for so many of us) is far too long. Years of unwanted and unwelcome touches, advances or commentary to scroll through. I start to laugh. I laugh because it's all so ridiculous. The boss who told me that sleeping with clients wasn't in my job description but if I opted to do

Oh the Trouble You Will Go Through To See Angkor Wat

Sunrise at Angor Wat
Hiring a private guide to tour Angkor Wat was one of the best ideas of our whole trip. I had the salad. I wasn't even thinking when I ordered it. We had just taken the boat from Nice Beach on Koh Rong Island after a few blessed days chilling out. Nice Beach Bungalows on Koh Rong Island was pure paradise The soft beauty of a Cambodian sunrise The island had been perfect. We had needed a small reprieve after a busy 3 weeks in Vietnam and thought a quick jaunt to a Cambodian beach was the antidote to south east

Why We All Need to Watch This Movie About Cambodia

Netflix
First They Killed My Father deepens understanding and helps bring compassion to the connected world in which we live. **Trigger warning: This talks honestly about what we came to learn and witnessed in Cambodia. There are some heartbreaking and ugly facts but ones you should know more about.  Mom Says Do me a favour. Open your hand up and run your fingers over your palm. What do you feel? Are they soft and smooth? Are your nail beds clean and well groomed? Manicured even? Or are they rough? Do they feel worn and full of callouses? Have they been working

Out of Time.

Paint
When All Your Reasons Have Run Out. I have no more excuses. None. The summer treated us with divine gifts. A series of golden moments with family, friends, as a couple, and on our own. We embraced new interests and reconnected with old passions. We sat silently on the dock, and took time to find a deeper gratitude and appreciation for the country we live in.  We even found a place to live and a place to work. Well, Chris did. Now it's my turn. Big Girl Underpants When we decided to come home, we made a conscious choice to give

Hitting Reset & The Trust Factor.

Ziplining in Banos Ecuador
We Started Again. In The Middle of Our Lives. You just gotta believe it will all work out.  We talk a lot about the universe in our world. About it aligning; putting energy into the right place; thinking positive and about trusting the flow of life. Sure, to some it might seem all a bit Hippity Dippity (as my family/friends have been known to call it). To me, I can absolutely 100% feel when I am fighting what should be moving along naturally in our life. I seriously love pushing past my comfort zone. I like taking on challenges. But

A Kid-Free Summer.

Round the world Family travel
What we wish we knew about sending our kids away. We joke about being kid-free for the summer, letting loose, partying like it's 1999. Whooping it up, staying up late, sleeping in, reading, writing and relaxing sounds pretty much like heaven right? We never expected it to feel like this. Dad Says: Well, here is something I don't ever think I would have admitted in public before… I really miss my family when they are not around. My kids, fresh off an 8 month adventure around the world and often living in the same room for weeks at a time,
