Happy due date day (but not-quite-birth-day) to these two ✨
New on the blog: #StayHome, a documentation of our lives over the last 2 months since COVID-19 began in Alberta, Canada. Link in bio.⠀
Kelsea, Chris and soon-to-arrive baby.
7th week working from home. If I were to give my new officemate a performance review, I’d say she’s a great listener; actively participates in work culture (lies on my mat during lunchtime workouts); is an excellent team player and loves being involved (may attempt to walk in, on and all around the set)—except for when she’s napping, or wants me to share my lunch 😉 Hope you all enjoy this last week of April!
Today marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. In recent months, we have seen air pollution and carbon dioxide levels decrease significantly, but unless drastic measures are permanently put in place by our governments, this global pause will not be enough to slow down the effects of climate change already taking a toll on our world. Our individual actions as citizens can only go so far without corporations being properly penalised for their actions.⠀ ⠀ I also wanted to take this opportunity to update you on the Australian bushfire situation (in case you are not already up-to-date): as of a couple of weeks ago, Australia's worst bushfire season in history finally ended and now, the nation can focus on recovery. Gallons of water and kilos of food are being dropped for wildlife remaining in the worst-affected areas and some of the first koalas to be injured have been released back into the wild. For the people who have lost everything, they have yet another challenge to overcome: finding a way to start again in the midst of a pandemic.⠀ ⠀ Unsurprisingly, our June trip to visit my family & friends in Australia was cancelled last month—but we hope to try again this same time next year. Until then, I'll hold on tight to my memories of our warm waters, familiar coastlines, the salty seabreeze and the sounds of an animal orchestra I never knew I'd miss.⠀ ⠀ Photo: Byron Bay, May 2016.
