It can be hard. Really hard. To resist the pressure. To not want to be bigger and ‘better’. To not jump on a plane and fly to Iceland because the landscape is amazing and the mist is calling. To not wish for the most beautiful sunset in a flowy wheatfield with a picture-perfect Alberta sky. […]

Slightly worn ivory keys. A calendar marking how many days a new bundle of love has been in her mother’s arms. Remnants of a favourite snack scattered on the floor.
