Journals – Writing to Forget
For as long as I can remember, I have always written in journals. Of course, there were stretches of time that I didn’t write at all, but I would somehow always find my way back.

"We are a bunch of stories that we leave behind. A legacy that we want to live many moons after we pass away. What happens after we die? We live. Connecting our physical and spiritual life are the stories that we share, the stories that we leave, the impressions that we make, the people that we cross paths with, and the intentions that we have. A series of choices to be the best version of yourself. We are." [Journal Entry December 15, 2020, Unaltered]

After reading a few of my old journal entries, I realized recently that I didn’t write to remember, rather I wrote to forget. Because it’s easier to forget something “journal-worthy” if you knew you had access to it in the future.

Equipped with this knowledge, wouldn’t you live every moment to its fullest? Without expectations, rather just because? With intention and purpose? Completely and utterly, present?

Then have the option to relive it through your words later. With words that you chose to use at the time because they were attached to distinct experiences, and moments; tied to enhanced emotions and feelings. Energy and manifested adventures.

Now imagine, a bookshelf full of your memories. Wouldn’t you want to document everything too?

So here’s to sharing some of my raw journal entries. Who knows where this blog is going to go, but journaling is certainly where it began.

How will you remember your stories?

Throwback to our first massive snowfall... So what's on the agenda, babe? ⁠
⁠
Instagram vs. Reality 
⁠
✅ Snowboarding in the ravine⁠
⁉️ Parked blocks away so we don't 'accidentally' get stuck. Carry our snowboard to the ravine. Board through the trees... Have you ever boarded down ungroomed snow?! #HardStuff!⁠

✅ Strap in and street-Snowboard behind ⁠the car
🥳 K, this one was super fun. Where people opted to stay indoors and not get into their cars, we turned out block and roads into a playground. Kids and parents applauding our thirst for fun (and a few 'Karens' throwing a few f-bombs bc of the "danger" aspect of it)

The right place at the right time had us flying towards the sunset for many hours on end. Hello, the longest sunset we've ever experienced 🌇 

Also, a few gorgeously frigid shots of Canada 🇨🇦

Is it riding szn yet? 🏍 We're debating on selling our bikes and investing in a legit electric downhill mountain bike. Anyone have one that can share their experiences?

What's in the pipeline? ⁠
⁠
🧊 and darkness... ⁠
⁠
Of course, this was his idea, but I am glad he made me do it. ⁠
⁠
There's a zen-like feeling from the crunch of the ice, the shift from a little bit of light to complete darkness as you walked further in... and pushing your comfort level just a little bit further with every step. Imagine even the sound of silence echoing in the distance. That's that moment. ⁠
⁠
Would you go down a dark hole where every sound is echoed? ⁠

P.S. bonne année 2023 🎊

Just a pretty serene moment on our icy hike. No soul in sight. Just us, Cartman, and these frozen balloons adding colour to the set. ⁠

It feels like a vacation. ⁠
Oh, it IS a vacation. ⁠
⁠
What is a vacation?⁠
Life. ⁠And whatever you make of it.

You know how I know he loves me?⁠
⁠
He sends me random pictures throughout his day. ⁠
⁠
He loves his mushrooms... He's French after all. ⁠
⁠
What's your love language?

"Where do you wanna wake up tomorrow?" he'd ask, and I'd always respond "by the water, with a view." ⁠
⁠
And he never disappoints. ⁠
⁠
Kind of boggles my mind that around this time last year we woke up at our final van-life destination. ⁠
⁠
We drove to... I am not sure where. He looked at the map and said "well if we wake up there and if the sun decides to come out, we'll wake up with a beautiful view."

Parked up on a picturesque backdrop, with a lighthouse to bat. We celebrated with an amazing steak and pasta dinner, and winter fire. One of those nights where we didn't want to fall asleep because we didn't want the night to end. ⁠
⁠
But of course, we're only human so we passed out. ⁠
⁠
Lesson learned? Don't park on a landing overnight. The wind is INSANE and will wake you into a state of "WTF is going on outside? Is someone there? Why is our van moving? Babe! Wake up, I can't sleep!" ⁠
⁠
Of course, he'd come to our rescue and moved the van to a less windy spot. 

Thank you, babe. Xo 🥰⁠

A few moments from our hike at the secret bluffs yesterday. 🥰

Completely a diff scene from our winter hikes here. 🙃

If you wanna check it out, be prepared for random high folks and no-warning nudists beaches.

Hahaha, ew. 💀

But otherwise, hike was pretty perfect... lots of beautiful sights and moments to take in. Great climb as well 🧗‍♀️

Love you babe! 🤗
