Treat Yo' Self, Ashten! If you read my blog, you know it's no secret that I LOVE coffee and cupcakes. It's not uncommon to find me with one of those in hand on a particularly rough day. Or any day that ends with "y".

Mar  |  t.o. & fro

Mar of t.o. & fro| I am a big city girl meant for the simple life surrounded by the ocean and mountains. I love to write about my experience as an environmental educator, my passion for animals, photography, traveling and the great outdoors, and being my hockey-playing hubby's #1 fan!

1 Adventure in 2014: Since moving back to the big city of Toronto from Alaska this past summer, there has been a void in my heart. To escape the concrete jungle, we will be travelling back to Alaska to spend some much needed time in the outdoors and with friends. On the way home, we'll be making a stop in Seattle to celebrate our 1st anniversary. I'm counting down the days!

2 Posts You Need To Read: 1) This Isn't Goodbye; 2) The Ultimate Road Trip, Day 1.

3 Words to Describe t.o. & fro:. earthy, adventurous, visual.

Treat Yo' Self, Mar! Taking time away from busy schedules to 'treat yo self' is definitely important, and I for one am guilty of not doing it enough. One way I treat myself is by taking a day off to spend time with my hockey-playing husband when he's not on the road. Hockey schedules are pretty hectic, so we like to cherish the time we have together during the season by getting outside and exploring, cooking a delicious meal together and enjoying a nice glass of wine, or two.

  1. I have never heard that quote before but I absolutely LOVE it! I really am such a lover for good quotes, I could read them all day! :)

    1. I just head it for the first time the other week and immediately fell in love!

  2. That's a great quote! I love sea turtles; I could watch them all day at the aquarium. They seem so wise-- probably because they are so comfortable in their own shells!
    -Rachel @ With Love, Rachel

    1. Isn't it? I totally agree, they are such a beautiful and wise creature.


I would love to hear from you!
