Welcome to my blog. A place to document my journey through life via the things I love most.

Oscars 2018


Lights, camera, Oscar! March 4 is coming soon and the scramble to see all the front runners is on. 

I don't typically see them all but I try for the best picture nominees and as much as the remaining categories as I can.  

I think my husband and I will be snuggling in with Dunkirk tomorrow afternoon. Fingers crossed.. my Oscar viewing time is crunched by a busy schedule and The Olympics this month. Go Canada!! I get so over involved in the games. It's one of my many loves. Especially the winter games!
