Favourite Moments of 2013

Happy New Year from Colourful Palate

Oh my. It’s 2014. Whhhaaaa!

Guys, it’s a new year. Wow. I’m beyond excited about the adventures that this year will bring. Looking back on 2013, I’ve been overwhelmed by the goodness of God. I’m not going to lie, I’ve been through some really rough patches, but through it all God has shown Himself faithful. Even when things didn’t happen the way I wanted them to…the truth remains, that He is good.

So blessed.

This year had so many happy moments and I wanted to reflect on some of my favourites!

Doing an across Canada music tour for 2 months

May Tour 01

Doing music with my family is a precious experience and seeing the beauty of all the different provinces of Canada wasn’t too shabby either. Two of my favourite provinces to visit was definitely Ontario and Prince Edward Island – being a prairie girl, seeing the waves crash on Cavendish beach and the forests that go on forever are a novel beauty. However, in traveling, the biggest joy for me was singing for wonderful people.

Maritimes Tour 314

Going to my first blogging conference

Kure Juice Drinkers

Goodness! This was an absolutely magical time – thanks to my favourite spirulina people in the world (you know I’m obsessed with spirulina – here’s why), I got to attend FitBloggin in Portland, Oregon. Trampoline workouts, blogging workshops, meeting amazing blogging friends, exploring Portland, and trying restaurants – it was all really special.

Completing the Colourful Smoothie Challenge

Colourful Smoothie August 2013 Challenge - Copy

The Colourful Smoothie Challenge has become an annual challenge for me and a lot of you readers…it’s always a fabulous month for me…usually in the middle of the year, to put health back as priority. Plus, I’m not gonna lie, I get amazing sponsors every year and the prizes are great! I’m looking forward to this year’s challenge, it’s going to be even better!

Being Certified as Group Instructor

Certified with AFLSCA

Last year I taught my own bootcamp, but it was unofficial (and free!) because I wasn’t officially certified. However, now I am…so as I work front desk at a gym while I’m still in school, I’m available to be a sub teacher for bootcamps…so it’s perfect! I really love teaching and am looking forward to doing more of it this year!


Volleyball with Friends

Always. This is what makes my summer extra magical. I’m not amazing, but it’s one of the funnest things. Ever.

My Walk with God

God Time is the best time

This year so much has happened in my spiritual walk. God has shown me a lot about what walking with Him looks like – and how that translates to my prayer life, how I relate to people, and the time I spend with God. I crave time with Him and my day is not right unless I spend my morning with Jesus. I’m so thankful for His grace in my life…and honestly, I have never been so in love with God. It’s been beautiful.

Completing my 3rd Semester in Exercise Science


Yup. I’m almost done college. One more semester and I’m graduated! Whaaa! Once April is here, I will be a certified personal trainer and have my degree in Exercise Science! Pretty exciting.

What are the highlights of 2013 for you? What are you looking forward to most in 2014?

    You are such a beautiful person! God shines through you and I know what rough patches are like, trust me! Yet, I think when we can smile through those and be grateful, God shines through us even more. I hope you have a wonderful 2014!!
