I love winter. I really do… but it’s suppose to be spring right now. I can’t believe there is snow in the forecast this week but I also can’t say I’m not surprised.

Oh well, I definitely made the most out of spring this past weekend. I spent a lot of time outdoors and I know by the end of it, Luna was pooped (as was I).

Happy week friends!

THE GAP by Ira Glass

THE GAP by Ira Glass from frohlocke on Vimeo.

Incredible.

I could never understand why I felt the way I did about my early design career but this beautiful video sums it up nicely… It’s a wonderful reminder why I still continue to push myself in my career.

Studio Songs

I’ve been listening to one song for the last two months but it’s helpful because now I know the song inside and out. :)

I’ll be able to listen to new songs soon enough… and can’t wait to use these ones in the studio.

The little signs of spring

With the little sparrows chirping, squirrels running amok and the mounds of snow melting away, I think it’s safe to say that spring is finally here in Toronto.

Luna at Trinity Bellwoods Park, Toronto.

Yes, that’s my little Luna at Trinity Bellwoods Park from this morning. She’s still wary of streetcars, loud traffic and crowds but I feel like she’s slowly improving. I look forward to the day where her fears do not control her life and she can live a carefree, happy life.

I can’t believe how busy I’ve been for the last two months. In addition to all my duties to Luna, I’ve been training and practicing for an upcoming show… despite a persistent forearm sprain. I’ve also been busy with work, learning new skills, sharpening up old skills and growing as a designer. It’s been a great experience so far but I can’t wait for things slow down… just a little bit :)

I really want to travel but it’s unrealistic this year. If I travel, it’ll have to be within the province, and somewhere that allows me to bring my little Luna. As for now, I still yearn to travel to Vietnam in 2015…

As much as I love winter, I think I’m ready for spring/summer.

Monday Voyages

These days, my life sort of falls into a cycle of sleeping late, waking late, showering late, 2+ hour playtime at the dog park, Luna time, client work, skill development, TWG fitness challenge, flexibility challenge… Anddddd whatever is leftover, I invest in reading, knitting, relaxing, eating and writing for L+W.

I hope to post a little more frequently because I enjoy blogging. Stay tuned this week as I will be posting a tidbit about my little Luna and Toronto Animal Services!

Wowwowow. It’s already February and I have some great news. Since my theme for 2014 is FOCUS, I’ve decided to take my dance skills to the next level even though I’m not the best. In a couple of months, I will be performing in a real audience setting with other talented performers!

What does dance have to do with focus? Well, that’s easy, I need to be committed to intense training (flexibility, core strength, etc) and smart eating in order to perform well. :)

Stay warm, Toronto.
