My amazing trip.

I spent the most amazing weekend in the Yukon with 4 amazing ladies. I am not going to go into detail on here because I am assuming you have all followed the blog through Facebook links or through here. I am just going to say it was amazing, I learned a lot about myself and have solidified some life long relationships. And I kissed a girl, but that's another story. :)
I have a lot of pictures on my phone so I thought you and I would just go through them and then when they are here I can delete them. So here we go in no particular order. 

I have been trying for months to grow my hair out and it's driving me foolish. So I went to my hairdresser and said "do something or I am going to shave it off" this is what she did and I must admit I like it a lot. Comments? Be honest. 

My very first ever Starbucks. It was Iced Coffee. Honestly the ice coffee at McDonalds is better. In my opinion of course. 

In a bathroom stall in Mayo, Yukon. There are still some places where you can smoke and pee at the same time. There were actually cigarette butts in there, yes I checked. 

How I spent most of my evenings in the Yukon. I believe this picture was taken close to midnight. 

Snow baby!!!

Who is that bearded fool standing in the snow??

Oh Kennie how she loved to lick everyone. 

My amazing blogger buddy Kara who I have been waiting 7 years to meet!!

The campground we stayed at in Dawson City. 

Kara said she found us a house to live in. Bit of a fixer upper but with my husband being a carpenter shouldn't be a problem!

Or maybe this beautiful side by side?

Taken from the plane as we are flying over the Yukon. That's snow on them there mountains!!

Enjoying the Yukon.

I am currently sitting in Mayo Yukon waiting to do a 5k midnight sun run. I have been on the go for the last 5 days and I am on top of the world. 

Check out the snow on the mountains!

Snow baby!!!  I had to get in it. 

Having such a great time 

So excited to finally meet Kara for the first time. We have virtually known each other for 8 years!!


And best of all look who I found!!

Long gone to the Yukon

I am currently on vacation and if you choose jump over to 

Closest I have been in a year

Right now I am on a plane flying over Saskatchewan and all I can think is that this is the closest I have been to my métis family in a year. So close but yet do very very far.

Welcome Gabriela

My beautiful niece Gabriela was born on June 14th. We went up to Amherst today to see her before I leave for my epic trip on Tuesday. She is amazing and I can't wait to spend more time with her.

My love

Rob graduated from fire fighter training tonight. I am so proud of who he is and how much community means to him. He is now an official volunteer fire fighter.

I actually did it

My very first tattoo. It is to celebrate the life changing trip I am about to take with my fellow ravens to the Yukon. The purple one is actually the color indigo in memory of the very beautiful Indigo Sweetwater who left us much too soon and was the inspiration for this trip.

2 weeks from today.....

I will be on my way to the Yukon for the most amazing adventure ever. I am giddy I am so excited but I have to keep it contained for the next 2 weeks or I will drive everyone foolish. Today in the mail I received this:

The contents look like this:

My amazing friend Jenn who is also going on this trip was thoughtful enough to send me this little goody package as I am traveling the farthest to get there. I can't wait to get there. If you so desire (which means of course you do) you can follow the whole trip as we blog from the road. Check it out at I think. If that doesn't work google it. You'll find us. :)
