Create a Connection: Getting to Know You

I've been off the CaC ride for a while, and I miss it! So I'm diving back in with Jana's final Getting to Know You quiz. I had a lot of fun answering these. Thanks Jana!

What did YOU eat last?

Tuscan turkey & beans over brown rice

What about YOUR love life? Anyone special? Tell us about him/her!

I met my husband at a nightclub. I was absolutely not interested in meeting anyone, but there he was. He was reserved, intense and went clubbing primarily on industrial nights. He always wore black. Imagine my surprise when I got to know him and found out that he was affectionate, silly and could make me laugh until I was wheezing! The clearest thing was that he was 100% right for me.

What is it like where you live?

I live in a great city, Toronto. I heard recently that it is the most diverse city in the world. That's one of my favourite things about living here. It's also a great centre for culture with music, theatre, dance and special events going on every day of the week ranging from some of the biggest and brightest that Canada has to offer to really independent cutting-edge exporations. I've lived here a long time and there's still tons to explore!

I live in the east end, which has taken some getting used to (as you know if you've been reading this blog for a while - I'm a downtown girl at heart) Justin and I have a 2-bedroom house that's on an uber-busy street but we're close to the subway, which was absolutely key to us. We have a little yard that's been a joy to turn from a mud patch into a garden, and I'm still working on that. The one thing that we don't have that I would really love is a dining room with an uber-sparkly chandelier!

What are YOUR favorite features about yourself?

You know, I don't think I have any favourite features. I think I just love how I sum up as a whole package!

What deep thoughts have YOU been pondering upon?

I've been thinking with greatitude about the joyful and playful ways of the Universe, especially synchroncities. I've been pondering the next bold and beautiful steps for my coaching practice. I've been looking deeply in the mirror to get a good sense of who I have become.

List 2 random things YOU love about life:

I love going out for breakfast and the movies on a weekday.
I love getting the giggles with my loved ones.

How did YOU find out about CAC?
Melba, who I know and adore, sent me an email asking me to host the first month of Try Days.

What do YOU love most about spring?

Spring flowers!! They make me smile. I enjoy the sheer joy and beauty of them. And they have been a message to me at more than one time in my life that everything's going to be okay.

I love the giggling answers. I wish we could hear you giggling over the internet! :) Giggling is a word that sounds like what it is to me and it makes me smile!

I love your deep thoughts answer, especially taking a deep look into the mirror to see who you've become. I've done that recently too, and I think it's vital to our growth as human beings.

Wow- your post comes complete with photos- I love your backyard! It looks like a cozy place to spend an afternoon. Toronto sounds absolutely fantastic. I really must visit someday. :-)

It's always so wonderful to hear about you Jamie. You're so great and of course, I am totally biased being your sister and all but I can't help it, I miss you!

YAY! I loved these answers. You know what? I came to the realization this week that I want to live at least part time in Toronto! (This is HUGE!) We are a long way from that but this post just made me realize how much I want it!!!!!! Maybe we will be able to hang out in the T-dot someday!!

Spring flowers ARE great... they show new life coming to the earth... and a lot of times, we need a new start too.

Wheezing is definitely love :) I liked how you eat healthy and like the "whole package." YES!
