Hello, my name is Jane and in my career I work full time in the advertising industry – the rest of the time I am a wife, a mum, a daughter, a sister, a daughter-in-law, a niece, a cousin, a friend, a neighbour…. and well I guess now a blogger too. I am quite definitely 37 but am still trying to convince myself that I have actually reached adulthood (yes, it happened awhile ago)!
I love my job in the advertising industry as an account executive at Y&R Vancouver (working on the BC Ford Dealers account), but outside of work you will find me in North Vancouver squeezing as much family time in as I can while attempting to fit everything and everyone else in, but also trying to find some form of balance – not quite there yet, which I suspect is quite common – but at least I hope this blog will let me, and others that find me, laugh along the way and remind us to pause.
My favourite times and when I am probably feeling the most balanced, are when walking by the water or in the woods with the dog, my husband, and our 2 year old son in tow – of course quite often with a mandatory soy latte in hand. It also happens in those quiet moments when I sit in the rocking chair in my son’s room and watch him sleep for a few moments, or the rare times I get up to our cabin and really get time to settle into a good book on the deck or lazyboy.
There are actually so many moments when you actually stop to let them in and just enjoy them for what they are.
I hope that these posts can capture some of these moments.
