Chasing adventure & living mindfully while parenting through mental illness

At my weekly yoga class, our instructor pointed out that it is both the summer solstice and the full moon on the same day this year. Supposedly, that indicates a double "changing of the seasons". Cycles or chapters coming to an end and the beginning of new ones. I thought it was an appropriate meditation for now since...We're moving!imageWe bought a townhouse out in Steveston, an old fishing village part of Richmond, BC. While we've wanted to stay in the city, with 2 boys (one who is pretty rambunctious!), we are really in need of some more square footage. Steveston is our compromise suburb, since it has a village feel, is supremely walkable, and also something of a tourist destination.imageI would be lying to say I'm not nervous. Our friend network is very much in the city still. We will have to make new friends. We had a bad experience when we lived in New Westminster, and we both went through some depression episodes. I am hopeful that, with kids and the commitment of owning, we will push ourselves out of our comfort zones to make some new connections. I will be testing my emotion regulation skills and my mental health remission.  I will report back!I should also have the ability to post some more lifestyle-type posts. We have the space to have parties, something I have sorely missed the last few years. I am excited to dive back into hosting, something I grew up doing and often use to flex my creative muscles.Exciting times in this upcoming season, and definitely some welcome changes.
