My Lent for the Non-Religious!

It's me, I'm back.   As someone who went to Catholic School for 13 years, and as a self-identified 'fallen-Catholic', I still like the idea of the Lent! I never totally understood the purpose of Lent as a child. My interpretation of it was always 'Jesus gave so much (I know there's more to the...

2019 Season!

2019 is upon us, even though I lost most of January!   Last year I posted a little breakdown of how the year was going to go down - how competitions work, what was on the horizon, etc. and people seemed to like it, so I figured I could do a lil’ update! Provincial Cups...

Where have I been? | JANUARY UPDATE

2018 Recap | My Christmas Card?

This is basically my Christmas Card, but don't expect a poem and don't check the mail. Last year started in the same place I am writing this bad boy from - the Grandest of Prairies. This month (December) has been a little nuts. I travelled a lot this Fall and December seemed busy, although I...

I received two awards - one for Pan Ams this year in Peru (Team Silver), as well as Nationals (Team Gold). Trish also received the Citation Award...

ITALY PHOTO DIARY | Milan + Florence

Italy vs. Russia Italy was great! After Worlds in Russia (World's Blog), we wanted a little break somewhere warmer and less... Russian? haha. We spent a couple days in Milan and then drove to Florence. Both were great; we loved Milan while we were there, but Florence really lived up to the expectations! Check out...

World Championships 2018 | St. Petersburg, Russia | +VLOG!

Update: Russia is still cold. The trip there was really smooth; no issues. It seemed like it took a long time, but it was actually only about 21-22 hours from the time we left to the time we landed. Not bad. We landed and had to go through customs - an intimating process. We waited...

Day in the life of a Gymnast | Pre-World Championships!
