Pablo Picasso: Youth has no age.
Jubjub was feeling affectionate today and hopped onto my shoulder for some cuddles. For scale, I’m holding a plushie keychain to illustrate the size of this reptile. From head to tail, he is now the full-length of my arm! He’s grown from a wee hatchling to a healthy, curious, alert, and wonderful, eight-year-old beardie! Happy hatch day, Jubby!
Looking behind, I am filled with gratitude.
Looking forward, I am filled with vision.
Looking upwards, I am filled with strength.
Looking within, I discover peace.
Most of you know, I do intermittent fasting which means I skip breakfast so that I can do fasted workouts. I don’t always eat pastries, but when I do, I eat it only for lunch. This pic shows what I had for lunch earlier this week. From left to right, you are looking at a cream-filled dark chocolate eclair, a napoleon which is a Russian-style mille feuille, and 2 cream puffs!
I woke up the next day still f*cking sexy. It’s possible to eat what you want when you eat clean 80-90% of the time, workout smart and keep yourself in vibrational alignment with things, people, circumstances that keep you feeling good.

My parents are celebrating their wedding anniversary this week so I took the liberty of fixing one of their printed photos. This is their honeymoon picture which I removed some noise from. I also desaturated the photo which developed into a much cleaner picture!
Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad! I love you.
I love it here at Glenburn Soda: the flavours, the friendly service, the retro decor and especially the music!
Today’s #TBT photo is from my personal collection. I took this torii [gate] picture when I was at The Butchart Gardens with the Frenchie [ex] and his mother who was visiting from France. There was a Japanese garden there which happened to be my favourite spot. Then and now, gates remind me of the journey we are all travelling as these are symbolic of entry into a new world!
Tonight is the autumn equinox so today and tomorrow, here in the Northern Hemisphere, we will get two days of equal light and dark [that’s 12 hours each of daylight and night]. Following this, we then switch to a period where the darkness dominates so the nights are now longer than the days! This marks Fall’s arrival — you can actually feel the evenings are cooler. If you’re like me, you start to layer up, wear gloves, and maybe even wear a toque, when out for a late-night run outside!
I really love autumn because the flora burst with colour. Here in Vancouver, we get such spectacular hues of red, orange and yellow as vibrantly as possible when it’s Fall! Also, I find it quite romantic outside when the leaves are falling on the ground and the fog starts to be more frequent, haha. Autumn is the perfect time of year to start wearing your fave overcoat, don some warm gloves and drink hot cocoa 🙂
