Hi friends!

I’m Alyssa. It’s nice to finally meet you!

I thought you deserved a proper hello ...

I thought you deserved a proper hello …

I’m 25 years old and I live in Canada’s capital city with my boyfriend Sean. I’m a University of Ottawa graduate, with an Honours Bachelor Degree in Communication and I’m now working a job in the not-for-profit sector.

the day my boyfriend started dating a real adult

After my new years resolution in 2010 to start exercising and eating healthier stuck (when does that ever happen?), I began reading my way through way too many healthy living blogs and in no time I was hooked! I write almost daily at work, but this world where people write about the things they love and are passionate about fascinates me.

After much debate, I decided that it was finally time I start my own blog. I’ve still got a lot to learn, but I know that the blog world is the best place to satisfy my curiosity, and who knows; I may pique yours along the way!

I’m not a journalist or a fitness expert (by any means!), I’ve never come up with an original recipe (on purpose) and I’m probably the exact opposite of what most people consider “a foodie”, but I do sincerely try to live the fullest and healthiest life that I know how.

see? only healthy people love strawberries

I’m also of the (strong) opinion that sometimes this life includes a plate of french fries and ice cold beer(s) – they’re good for the soul!.

this life also includes my best friend, ice cream

I’m hoping that there are others out there just like me, striving to find a balance somewhere between the salads and the beers, and taking the time to appreciate the little things.

I also happen to be surrounded by the most wonderful friends and family who will ensure that this blog is nothing short of entertaining.

Thanks for stopping by (bonus points if you’re not my boyfriend or my mother). I can’t wait to share my life with you!

thumbs up for you!
