Long time no blog hey?

I wanna blame life but nah, I really just haven’t felt like it. I still love reading blogs while sipping my morning coffee, so, there’s that.

I’m trying to think of all the things that I have been up to lately. Let’s start with the most fun!

I got a tattoo! EEK! And when I say a tattoo I mean 2 tattoos. Double whammy, go big or go home right?

Andy and I got them together and now I finally understand why people say they can be addicting.

First tattoo – apology for the photo. 3 Triangle glyphs. They mean Explore, Create, Transcend.


Totally hipster tattoos that I may just shake my head at a few years down the road but I love them. They are on the inside of our right arms just above our wrists.

Second tattoo: Located on the outside of the same arm.

Ikigai 1954-2014. 


I lost the most important person in my life in November. Ikigai means a reason for being. This person is my reason for being. I wrote about this word, what it means to me, and how beautiful it is years ago which you can read HERE.

Aside from the usual workouts of TRX, spin, and some circuits life is pretty ordinary. Ordinary and good.




At work we’ve been making an effort to hang out with one another outside of work hours and it’s been so so nice. Look at this crew!


…and this girl.

Corinna, Andy, and I have been having Friday Morning Brunches lately and they are just wonderful.

Generally we will go for an early morning workout and then scoot on over to North Vancouver to Corinna’s humble abode from some Bailey’s + Coffee, Bubbly + Orange Juice and all the food.



Clearly we just like being drunk by noon on Fridays ;)

How do you feel about a boozy brunch?

    I LOVE your tattoos!! I have been thinking about two more I want and I need to just go. I really like that placement on your arm too! No booze at brunch for me, I need all the room for foooooood.

  • Britta says:

    hahahah right? I’m usually so full when I have a boozy brunch.. no thank you. Maybe I will make that visit to Seattle and we go together? Heck yes! OH! Ps, I am coming to Seattle May 17-18 – Seattle vx Red Sox game around 1pm on the Sunday, you in?!?! aka we just eat all the food and look at seksi boys in tight(ish) pants.

    AMAZING BRITTA!!!! Seriously love those tattoos…they’re so you! I’m glad you bit the bullet and just went for it! Even if you regret the one tattoo one day down the road you will remember how you felt when you got the tattoo and maybe that’s even better than liking the way it looks? haha who knows! So glad you’re loving your “ordinary” life! Miss you xoxo
