Sunday mornings I usually take time to catch up on stories I may not have time to read through the week. I thought I would share some that caught my eye this week.
Hope Blooms teen gets accepted to Stanford University – Nova Scotia – CBC News
What a story! Hope Blooms is such an amazing organization and to see this, one of their original members getting accepted to Stanford, which was his lifelong dream…all with the support and experiences he gained from working at Hope Blooms, which is where they grow fresh herbs and produce their own salad dressing to sell. Amazing!
As Hope Blooms prepares to celebrate its 10th anniversary with a gala fundraiser featuring Dragons’ Den star Arlene Dickinson Wednesday night, one of its original members is getting ready to go to a top American university.Bocar Wade has been accepted to Stanford University with a scholarship. The first year alone at the school costs $68,000.

This post from my dear friend Lori really rings true. Social media and sharing of images has allowed us to see things and people in a whole new way. What we put out into the world and what we perceive can be select and superficial and how exactly do we manage it all? It’s not easy.
We are bombarded by everyone’s best version of themselves, shown through the filters of Instagram and Facebook. The neatly styled corners of their homes, wardrobes, work and life. And its hard not to compare. Really hard. Someone else’s vacation was better than where we went, their house is bigger, prettier and more current. Her wardrobe looks so good on her thin frame and their car is newer, fancier and better. She seems to be going places in her career, that Facebook page has more followers and her Instagram post has way more engagement than mine. See? We are constantly fed a filtered glimpse into other people’s lives.

Well isn’t this charming! Ocean views, 4 bedrooms, 16 acres and blueberry bushes…what more could you want! 😉 What a perfect family home that’s filled with character! This is a unique and beautiful spot.
16 acres to explore and a home that has been carefully renovated to maintain its original charm and character.. Four bedrooms, two full baths, hardwood/softwood floors in all of the principal rooms, all offering an abundance of natural light. Outside you can sit in the morning sun and enjoy your coffee while watching the boats go by.
Enjoy the day!
