French toast with homemade soda bread.
Lots of leftover eggy bits on the side. The best parts.
chemicals sugar-free syrup.
Pre-workout snack of champions.
When your mom says there’s bacon on the counter for you – you eat it. Even if you’re on your way out the door to the gym. Sure, the salt leaves you thirsty for the duration of your workout, but the protein/fat combo are magic energy boosters*

My last lunch with my dad. Our favourite restaurant was closed, so we opted for our second favourite.
They are known for their crepes, and we were sitting inches from the action in the kitchen.
But somehow, this Egyptian pizza caught my eye.
I swear the crust was made out of crepe. Dee-lightful.
When your Nana offers you homemade fudge, you don’t turn it down either.
This girl needs protein after a light-on-protein lunch. Some may call it a mix of soy protein powder, hot chocolate mix, and almond milk. I call it chocolate protein mousse :)
My last Maritime dinner with my mom. Appropriately, breaded haddock. I will miss the seafood here.
Eating up the last of the veggies in the fridge, wondering how my mom gets the pan potatoes perfectly crisp.
A light lifting workout. Don’t want to be sore for my travels tomorrow. Shout-out to Janetha who inspired me to do squats and lunges off a bosu ball. I suspect her balance is better than mine being a pro snowboarder and all. My childhood briefly flashed before my eyes mid-wobbly-squat.
My Nana’s artwork of the Restigouche river “up home.”
My set of keys. I am leaving the house and car behind, therefore no longer the owner of any key or keychain.
My 87-year-old grandmother has been packing and re-packing for a trip to Newfoundland for two weeks.
I pack for a trip across the country in two hours. Things are worsened by the fact that I am not returning, and won’t be reaching my final destination for another three weeks. A few tears and mental breakdowns later, I squeeze my zippers closed.
Dad. Cyclist. Peanut butter connoisseur. Smartest person I know.
Daughter and Mother. Mom and Nana. Strong women. Heroes. Hilarious. Make a good roast.
It’s been a bittersweet day. I love every moment I have spent living at home over the past month, and I hope to boomerang back again some day.
But for now it’s time to think ahead. I’ve got a mountain adventure ahead of me.
Guest posts are lined up, with a few updates expected on my end from higher altitudes.
In the meantime – be safe! And don’t do anything I wouldn’t do! :P
See ya on the flip side!
