Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I write about books, food, wine and travel. 

Come hang out with me.

Our December Book Club Pick went VIRAL!

Our December Book Club Pick went VIRAL!

What a day!

Today was a crazy, wonderful day! It started with heading out with my group of besties for an AWESOME class at Champs Boxing Studio in Edmonton. Champs is a very cool new boxing-inspired fitness studio in the heart of our downtown - but more importantly, is the creation of my amazing friend, Jelena Mrdjenovich. For those who don’t know, Jelena is Canada’s Eight-Time Women’s World Boxing Champion, so she knows her shit when it comes to boxing fitness. https://www.champsboxing.ca/

I’m not going to lie - the class kicked by ass, but in the BEST way possible. If you are in the Edmonton area, and want an incredibly fun way to stay in shape, you need to check out Champs.

Of course, our group of friends are really all about the socializing, so there could be no friends fitness day without a brunch to follow. And by brunch, I mean mimosas and ceasers and avocado toast as far as the eye could see.

Only to make my way home to find out that our Northern Lights Reads December book club pick, One Day in December, has gone VIRAL! This book has now been picked by Reese Witherspoon as the December choice for her Hello Sunshine book club, it is now a Book of the Month December pick, AND Chapters Indigo have been highlighting it as a December pick! To say that Laurie and I are THRILLED is underselling it, but we MUST be doing something right!

With all that excitement, I can now not WAIT to dive into this read, and what better time as some delightful December snow has started falling here! It is the perfect snow too - not too cold, and softly falling big flakes, that makes everything that special sort of quiet and peaceful. The perfect kind of snow to get cozy inside near a window, and read a December festive romance, some might say.

Will you be reading along with our Northern Lights Reads chat for this one? We are excited to chat with you all, and will post chat dates and times for this baby in the coming weeks. Stay tuned to our Instagram account!

Happy Saturday!
