live life to the fullest and focus on the positive.

Life is rarely slow, quiet, or boring. At least in my experience. It seems there is always more to see and do...and I like it that way! (Though, I confess, a bit of downtime would be nice every now and then). Over the last couple of weeks, my schedule has been packed. Between work, writing, my blog, YouTube channel, and all of those pesky at-home's hard to imagine being able to squeeze anything else in. Yet, I've managed to do it. Here is a little peek at my life lately.

The Bodyguard Musical. Musicals are a serious love of mine. Sadly, I don't get to see them very often. I'm more likely to be found watching a movie musical or browsing YouTube for Broadway clips. Luckily, I was able to see a live performance recently: The Bodyguard Musical. A friend of mine was able to get a good deal on a pair of I away we went! I didn't know quite what to expect from the show. Honestly, I'd never even seen the movie. All I knew was that the soundtrack ruled.

Our seats were pretty close to the back but it was easy to see everything thanks to the elaborate costumes and oversized set pieces. So, how was it? I had a great time. The musical numbers were everything you'd expect and more. It felt like being at a Whitney Houston concert. I found myself getting completely and totally lost in the music. The rest of the production was good as well, but the songs (along with the uber talented cast) were most definitely the best part of The Bodyguard Musical. It was a fun day out, for sure!

Blue Jays Game. It just isn't spring/summer without going to a baseball game! Though my husband and I usually wait until the summertime to check out a game, a friend of his from work suggested we go. So we did! It was a long day (because I worked that morning and then went to the game that night) but a good one. Our team won, we ate dinner at my favourite restaurant, and got a giant bucket of popcorn. Not a bad way to spend a Monday evening.

Writing. In addition to all of the extra activities that have been keeping me busy... I've been doing a lot of writing lately. This is without a doubt my biggest passion. For me, writing is fun and rewarding. So, here are a few of my more recent articles. Check them out if you get a chance!

In the words of Ferris Bueller, "life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it." While it definitely feels like life is moving faster and faster these days....there are plenty of exciting events to appreciate along the way.

What has been keeping you busy lately?
