Lunerday!

The celebration of my birth month continues. Just about two more weeks left. June is just whipping by us!

It’s been fun! I’ve thrown all routine out the window. Unless I have an appointment… I do what I want. This usually means being outside in the garden. Either weeding or reading. Strangely I find both equally relaxing. Weeding is actually really fun AND I’m developing a wicked tan!

Monday:

These were OK. Not as good as the Peek Freans version though.

Tuesday:

Palm Bay beverages are made in Vancouver, BC. My old stomping grounds! This was OK. Strong but quick passionfruit flavour, no raspberry that I could taste. Bit of a vodka-y after taste. Not the worst thing I’ve ever had but I probably wont buy them again.

Wednesday:

I am IN LOVE with these earrings! They’re made out of flowers! And they are just so cool looking. The colour is out of this world. Krista is a really cool person too. I met her (and bought these) at a local craft show, here in Edmonton. You can check out her site HERE which I see is under maintence SO you can find her here, on ETSY

Thursday:

I’m a sucker for handmade soap. These four are all delicious smelling AND the one I’m using now- Sophisticated Hippie- lathers up really nicely. I can tell its made with quality ingredients because my skin feels so soft and clean after each use. Apple Island Naturals is also in BC and are run by nice people! Check them out HERE.

Friday:

Isn’t this the cutest thing!? And given my current bird obsession, very appropriate! The eggs are such a vibrant teal and they’re opalescent…they glow against my skin. Handmade again, and the artisan was a lovely human. You can find her HERE. Tracey is in Calgary, AB.

Saturday:

Get in MY BELLY!

Yes, that is a hamburger. My FAVOURITE hamburger, a Teen Burger from A&W πŸ™‚ Nom Nom Nom

You can now find me on Instagram >>>over there, in the sidebar. Follow me, if you’re so inclined.

I hope your weekend is going great! Love & Squishy Hugs. ❀

Happy Lune- 2019

Lune – the month I renamed in honour of celebration, gratitude, self love and ..erm…myself – has arrived and I’m so thankful to be here to celebrate another one!

My birthday is sometime in June -hence all the fuss- and Lune started as an act of self love . I grew up believing there was something deeply wrong with me, like so many other folks do, for so many different reasons. (It’s all BS BTW. You’re actually, really cool ) ANYway, this one month out of the year became a way to dispel that myth! I’ve found the benefits of Lune spill out through the other months too. I treat myself better. I don’t allow others to treat me badly. I set better boundaries and have a better appreciation for all the little wonders in the world.

My unapologetic celebration of self inspires others too. I’m the only one with a month long birthday celebration but my friends respect and admire my tradition and tell me it brings them joy and gets them thinking about actively loving themselves too.

Squeee!

Celebrating anything brings joy and happiness and really is an expression of gratitude. Gratitude can be an antidote to a lot of things that ail us so while my birth month shenanigans might seem silly and frivolous (Even to myself sometimes ) I will fiercely celebrate ALL THE THINGS anyway. My little anarchist heart in action ❀

As I grow older , my celebration becomes less about celebrating me and more about celebrating being ALIVE. A side effect of being a Death Doula I guess πŸ™‚ HA, and middle age too probably!

Ha Ha True Story.

My end goal is to get myself to the place where I celebrate life every single day, even in a small way and it all starts in Lune.

What does that even look like?

Stay tuned, I plan to document the WHOLE thing.

There will be presents. And delicious treats. And fun adventures!

In the meantime, here’s some inspiration to get you thinking about your own life. It’s longer than your average video but well worth the watch. I promise.

Love & Squishy Hugs to YOU! ❀
