It's been a good run

6:23 AM

I think I can officially give you the stoic goodbye salute on this blog. All the margins of my life have been filled up and when I do have time for leisure writing it's now mostly short stories that I'll likely never share with anyone.

But while I'm getting sentimental over the fun that was My Idea of Happiness, here is a quick list I put together of the great times we had together. Thank you, dear reader, it was a slice.

You came along with me as I ate and drank delicious things including...
Twin Pines orchard & ciderhouse
Fire Roasted Coffee / Habitual Chocolate
Chil Frozen Yogurt
The Root Cellar organic cafe
Goodah Gastro food truck
That Crepe Place & Bakery, St Thomas
Richmond Station, Toronto

I packed you in my luggage on various travels including...
Curitia, Brazil
Los Angeles
Cocoa Beach, FL
Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba
Great Wolfe Lodge (Traverse City, Michigan)
Trump International, Toronto

I was overwhelmed by the generosity of many kind-minded companies who sponosed My Idea of Happiness, or just made incredible products that I couldn't help but review and promote, or sat down with me for interviews on the great work that they do...
Triple Cord Community-Shared Agriculture program
Chipkos eco-friendly sandals
Cottage Gardener heirloom seeds
Eco Kid bug repellent
Sircuit Skin
Natural Vitality magnesium
Daiya (vegan cheese)
Derma E
Sol Cuisine
J.R. Watkins
Rockin' Wellness (shake)
Natural Twig Toothbrush
Snappi (for cloth diapers)
100% Pure
Boogie Wipes
Radius recycled-material toothbrushes
Farm Boy
SoLi Gi gluten-free bars
Molson Canadian (stone fruit cider)
Garnier Eco-Fructis
Homeocan (homeopathics)
Aloha Chocolate & Greens
A & W
Sample Source
The Honest Company
The OVer Company

We saw plenty of contribution from the strange & beautiful people in my life, not limited to...
Angela's lentil lasagna (and extensive maple syrup usage guide), Filipe's brazilian brigedeiro recipe, Sarah's honey face mask, Alexis's soap tips, Perrie's feelings on vegan makeup, beauty tips from Jill and Jess, canning with mom and with Aunt Betty and with Ashley and with Bethany (so much canning), laundry soap by Ashley... I am forgetting so many. Please email me so I can update the list.

I featured friends' blogs like...
Britt and Natalie's Three Little Crowns
Dave's The Primal Cave Man

And we attended some fun events (metaphorically) together like...
My Natural Weight Loss lecture at the YMCA
the Birth and Beyond conference
the Bump, Baby & Toddler Expo
Break Up & Move free yoga

I am always, always available via email -
I hope you're happy!
