Podcast: Lockdown Love w/ Jen Kirsch

I’m listening to this right now and have to share! One of my BFFs Jen Kirsch, journalist & relationship expert, has a new podcast on eOne called Lockdown Love and I love it! It was the Monday boost I needed this morning to kickstart my workday and have a little laugh.

She shares real stories about her own dating during COVID, talks to experts and her dad Dr. Kirsch even makes an appearance to comment on her ‘dating’ during COVID.

I love her voice, her storytelling, and how funny she is. I was literally laughing out loud.

You don’t need to be dating to enjoy it but if you are, you might be going through some of the same things she is. I can’t wait to see what’s next in this 8-episode mini-series. Congrats Jenny Jen!

Day 69: Self-Isolation, Self Care, Self Time

I spent the morning on the patio writing and gave myself a much-needed spa day. I did a face mask, a hair treatment, and finished my book. My most recent read was an advance copy of Little Disasters by Sarah Vaughan from Simon & Schuster Canada. It was so good! Great story!

My plan was to venture out on the bike for a little ride around the neighbourhood and I ended up biking for hours. It was such a beautiful day and I was happy to be out, alone, and in the sun. I finally picked up some new fake flowers to decorate my basket.

Tomorrow Sean an Em are coming to pick me up and we’ll be back together as a family in the woods. I can’t wait. ?

Day 68: Writing In The Sun

I jumped out of bed and hopped on the bike to meet a friend for morning coffee. It was so nice to see Rachel Bies and her little boy Bowie. We chatted 6-feet apart in the sun before I biked back home. The bike works as a great little tripod btw.

At 1 pm, I did a writing workshop with Meghan Yuri Young where she gave us prompts over Zoom. We wrote thoughts, feelings, and to end the class I wrote a bunch of postcards to send to friends.

This is a hard time for all of us but we can all stay home and make the most of our space while connecting online. Please be safe out there and know that this will be over one day.
