Most Awesome Fall Adventures in Thunder Bay

Written for CBC’s Fresh Air morning show on CBC Radio One. Aired Saturday October 5th, 2019, live from Thunder Bay, Ontario. As dazzling colours begin to transform the landscape, they say you will fall in love with Thunder Bay at this time of year and it’s absolutely true. It’s the picture perfect season with so many Insta worthy sites, but most importantly thrilling adventures. Bird’s-eye view of Nor’Wester Mountain Range/Maple Trees: Northwest Heli-Tour Fall  in Thunder Bay  is a very magical and colourful season, and some landscapes simply demand a view from above.

Life in Full Bloom.

I was having cocktails with one of my best friends the other night, going on and on about that new Beyoncé documentary on Netflix… you know, the one that chronicles everything that went into that unforgettable Coachella performance, (the show that was sooooo worth the midweek sleep deprivation). Anyhow, halfway through talking about the Blue Ivy appearance, I noticed she wasn’t listening to a word I said… HELLO!! Beyoncé … Blue Ivy…personal stories from the Queen Bey. How rude. I knew I wasn’t boring her with my conversation,  so why the hell was she not paying attention!? After calling her out on her[…]

Bay Mine.

It’s the time of year for cards with red hearts, chocolates, lame teddy bears, flowers, heart shaped boxes of candy, forced dinner dates, and  public demonstrations of pure admiration. As you can tell, I have mixed feelings towards Valentine’s Day. Ya I know, how novel… a 30-something year old, independent woman that doesn’t like a day about couples and LOVE. Oh stop. No, I don’t sit home alone, belting out the new Ariana Grande album eating ice cream with a dozen cats.  I don’t like cats; And romantic hardship isn’t my reason for feeling blah about the holiday. Very much like why[…]

Rise darling, don’t fall.

I won’t ever forget the day I launched my blog. I was so excited and happy to introduce my “baby” and work of passion to the world— something that was years in the making and a project I poured my heart and soul into. However, the day didn’t quite end the way I had envisioned it to. The day Bayawesome went live, I received a lot of support- really positive messages, texts, calls… but an email I received later that night took all of my attention. I fixated on it as it defeated all of the encouragement of the day, and[…]

Just Call Me Auntie Amanda.

One day I opened my eyes and realized that life had a brand new soundtrack—literally. It was no longer 50 Cent’s ‘In da club’… it was my best friend’s baby screaming in my face as she handed him off to me to go have a minute of “alone time”, AKA go to the bathroom and hide. I was left in complete terror while she walked away, thinking ‘you don’t even pee by yourself!?’… the baby continuing to cry looking down at my chest as if I had something to offer.  It really sunk in at that moment as he peered at[…]

A fresh start. When things don’t go as planned.

Ever since I can remember, I’ve had my life all mapped out, creating this perfect storyline for my future… “This is the career I will have, this is where I am going to live, these are the trips I’m going to take, these are the best friends I will have forever, this is the man I will marry, this is when I will reproduce a mini-me, this is where I will retire and live happily ever after” — all plans and dreams that I cherished and nurtured, holding close to my heart. I called it my interior blueprint and I[…]

Sorry, I’ve been busy.

It happens. Days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months, months turn into years and before we know it, our thirties are almost behind us and here we are. Life gets busy, and when you are living a busy life, time moves fast. I hate that word “busy” (as in- ‘Hi! How are you?’ —‘I’m soo busy’ . Wanted!  In need. So many things to do. I am soooo bussssyyyy.) — Can you say BARF!?! For a long time, I actually tried  to completely eliminate it from my vocabulary,  (buh bye BUSY), but this past year the word (busy)  managed to[…]
