So long… For Now

I’ve kept this blog for 7 months as part of a program I’ve been taking through McMaster University. I have really enjoyed blogging  but, as my class comes to an end, so too does this blog. I’ll be taking another class in the summer and, with work, school, and home life, I don’t think I can commit to regular posts, at least not any worth reading.

Who knows, though? Maybe after a month or two, I’ll feel like chatting again.

For now, I am going to focus on crossing a few more things off my 40 before 40 list and I’m also feeling the urge to sign up for another half marathon… We’ll see!

I truly, truly appreciate you following along and reading this little blog of mine. Your comments made this project feel like fun, instead  of just work.

Until we meet again here, you can find me on Twitter or Instagram if you feel so inclined!

Two Years of Oakville Claire

You might not know this about me, but I’ve lived in a few different cities because of my husband’s work. And, in a few days, it will be two years since we moved from Edmonton to Oakville.


I was going to write a post about my feelings on moving (okay, another post: others here, here) but then I read this post and it was like someone had written the post I wanted to write, only it is funnier and less whiney than the one I would have actually written. When you are reading it, just replace “New York” with “Edmonton” (you’re going to have to use a little imagination here, okay?) and replace “Moscow” with “Oakville”.

I’m still mourning Edmonton Claire but reading this post gave me a little pep talk.

Oakville Claire doesn’t have to be a such a downer.

Oakville Claire can be great.
