Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to those of you who have kiddies, and of course my own mother and nonna!

These are the last few photos that were taken in Peterborough before moving back to Ottawa.

I know, I know, I haven't made good on my word yet, but there's a good reason...
Alright, I'mma let you guys in on a lil' secret that will probably explain my absence for the past week/next week... I've quit smoking (both the regular and the wacky tobacky) and it's quite possibly the hardest thing I will ever do in my life! Seriously folks... never become a regular smoker of the crazy stuff... It may not be physically addictive, but it is most definitely psychologically addictive. I've been experiencing depression, anxiety, and insomnia like mad, but I know it's the best thing for me and it will eventually pass. But until then, I'm spending a lot of time focusing on myself and rediscovering the hobbies I enjoyed doing before i surrendered my life to mary-jane: painting, drawing, and sewing of course.
I'm 5 days now, with just a puff of cheating on day 2... so I'm doing pretty well.
I have faith that one day I will be awesome again!
Wish me luck!

  4. Good for you for quitting smoking! I did 6 years ago, cold turkey, and it's the best decision I ever made!

  5. Good for you!!! I imagine it must be hard, but I'm sure you can do it! My brother quit smoking a couple of years ago and I know its really hard, but I'm sure you can do this! Keep your head up high!
