Is it becoming glaringly obvious yet that winter is my fave? ❄️ •⠀ Whats your favourite season? Is anyone riding with me on the winter train!?⠀

SUNDAY SUN-DAZE ⠀ I am trying my hardest to slow down on Sundays. I'm not good at it, I'm actually terrible at it. Im really quite good at the GO GO GO, at the being busy and balancing all the plates in the air. But my body has been telling me for a long time now, that it cannot sustain that pace. ⠀ •⠀ So I am trying to appreciate the ancient wisdom of @oprah ☺️ @supersoul Sunday’s and be okay with being slow.⠀ And not accomplishing anything. ⠀ And that breathing, reading, resting, napping, feeling warm sun on my face, walking is enough for the day. ⠀ And that it's healthy and important to not ACHIEVE anything tangible today. ⠀ This is the hard work for me. ⠀ •⠀ Trying to harness what my mama bear tells me all the time. ⠀ "We are human BEINGS not human DOINGS, so be" ⠀ - @johannagouw •⠀ Tell me below what you do to be calm on Sundays, I could use the insights! ⠀ •⠀ 📸: @noellekjones ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

What makes you feel alive? ⠀ •⠀ For me it's standing on the edge of a cliff, with wet fluffy snowflakes landing heavy on my head. It’s howling into the abyss to hear your echo bounce back and hit you in the chest. It’s saying “MOM let’s go scramble out to the cliff and play in the snow!” and having @johannagouw say “OKAY!” ⠀ •⠀ What makes you feel alive? ❄️ 📸:@johannagouw

Winter snuggles warm my soul ⠀ ⠀ 💙 ⠀ ⠀

As controversial as it may be, I am ready to admit it. ⠀ •⠀ Winter is my FAVOURITE season. ⠀ It makes me feel alive and calm simultaneously. I get genuinely giddy with excitement every time it snows. ⠀ •⠀ I really truly adore all seasons for the unique qualities they bring. But Winter my dear, you have a firm grasp on my heart ❄️⠀ ⠀ 📸: @au5um⠀ ⠀

Welcoming 2019 with open heart and open arms. ⠀ •⠀ Ive found so far in my life, exciting and hard are usually locked in a tight hand hold, and are the best of friends that go everywhere together. ⠀ •⠀ Since I was, well...maybe 14, every day of my life has been planned. With training, or competitions or school. I always knew what was coming next. Except for life’s curveballs of course. ⠀ •⠀ 2019 is the first time in my life that I can't tell you what ill be doing at 2 pm on June 18th. Or on May 12th. Or even next Tuesday. And that's super scary and hard for me, because its not what I know. What we know is typically comfortable, and I am uncomfortable. I am trying to resist the MASSIVE urge I have to plan EVERYTHING in detail and be okay with this space. Because it does feel right and it does feel exciting. I am trusting that what is right and meant to be will happen on those days. ⠀ ❄️⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Merry Christmas! •⠀ I hope everyone gets to spend the holidays with their people. The ones that make you laugh and make your heart smile. ⠀ •⠀ Be it your biological family, your friends old or new, or your chosen family. I hope you can be present and soak in the magical holiday spirit. 🌟⠀ •⠀ 📸@au5um ⠀ ⠀

I’m obsessed with great coffee. Everyone knows this. So it only made sense that I featured my “best in glass” since I am convinced that the right coffee cup can enhance your drinking experience and enjoyment from your coffee.⠀ •⠀ Check out the link in my bio and head over to @saveurmag to read more. Need some last minute presents for the coffee buffs in your life? OR upgrade your morning coffee ritual. Trust me it’s worth it. ⠀ •⠀ I’ve trialed them all, and my verdict. Yes these vessels do in fact make my coffee taste better and more enjoyable! ⠀☺️☕️ ⠀

🛫 Back across this big beautiful country. Toronto see ya in a few.⠀ ⠀ Tune into @cbcsports tomorrow (Dec 8) to watch the luge women of the world battle it out in the Calgary WC. Ill be calling the action so you'll also get to have ME in your living room :)

I had such a blast calling my first luge WC LIVE from Toronto yesterday for @cbcolympics .Calling the race live across the nation gave me back that adrenaline filled endorphin high (that you get sliding, and I missed so bad!). It did make me miss racing but its fun to step back into the world of luge in a different capacity. ⠀ •⠀ A big standout moment for me was @ecsweens podium. She broke her back in her last run at the Olympics in PyeongChang. I don't want to put words in her mouth but I know she had a really hard summer coming back physically/mentally/emotionally. The only reason I feel like I have the ability to know or speak about how she felt is because Ive been exactly there. Every word of your @washingtonpost article rang so true to me it sent literal shivers down my spine. I know what its like having to come back after breaking your back. ⠀ •⠀ Seeing her get off the track with tears in her eyes and say "Im going to cry" (yes I heard you on camera!!) ... well you MADE ME CRY in the middle of the @cbc.sports editing booth!! Because I Remember what that feels like and I couldn't be happier for you. It really hit close to home today. I am so proud of you for your comeback, hold that feeling close to your heart, it is part of your journey now. ⠀ •⠀ This photo is from Winterberg WC 2016 when I raced the team relay after breaking my back 8 months earlier. This is the moment I proudly stood back on the podium after an incredibly hard and life changing journey. Ya gave me ALL the feels girl @ecsweens. Phew. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #BestLifeProject #ChampionHer #TheJonesLife #Inspiresport #inspiremovement #StrongisBeautiful #DontGiveUp #BeOlympic #WeAreWinter #TeamCanada #equipecanada #DoWhatYouCant #strong #determination #dedication #success #motivation #ViveLeSportFéminin #WeAreWinter #GamePlan #livewild⠀ ⠀

It’s no secret I am voting YES for the 2026 games to be hosted in CALGARY. Because of the '88 games, I was able to compete for my country every day for over a decade. The legacy that the '88 games left forever changed my life. ⠀ ⠀ I believe that hosting the games will bring together this city, leave a new legacy of infrastructure, programs, and opportunity for the next generations to come, introduce a new energy into our communities and allow Calgary to teach the world what hosting the Olympic should look like. Let us show the world how to do it right. ⠀ ⠀ Remember to go and vote today.⠀ #YES #2026

Todays news highlight: the US army bought cups that were each 1280$. Why? To keep their coffee warm. ⠀ ⠀ Someone should send them this article and tell them all of these cups are just as epic.. and about 1250$ cheaper. ⠀ ⠀ Who doesn’t want to save some trees, keep your coffee hot, and look good doing it? Yeah thought so. Link in my bio for your new favourite to go cup. Oh and your fam jam probably wants some for Christmas too! ⠀

Sitting all day does not make my body or back very happy. So whenever I am travelling for conferences, I always try and start the day going for a walk and finding a spot to do some yoga. ⠀ ⠀ I always seem to find the most unexpected wonders in new cities when I do this. Sometimes its epic coffee spots, and sometimes its moments like this. ⠀ ⠀ In Miami, I was able to find a spot right along the water front, to watch the sunrise and stretch my body, before I stretched my mind at @iwfglobal @ey_global

Back Home. ⠀ ⠀ How lucky am I to feel like I have two homes now? Calgary mountains and NYC brownstones. ⠀ ⠀ After such an amazing conference, my brain is spinning. Today you’ll find me wandering around my neighbourhood breathing in the fresh air and trying to make sense of it all. ⠀ ⠀ Oh I’ll have a constant delicious coffee in my hand. It makes me legitimately devastated when I travel and the coffee is swill. Yes I am spoiled with great coffee here, yes I am a coffee snob, and yes I’ll own up to that. • • • • #nyceats #thisisoptimism #whentojump #empowered #chaseyourdreams #nycgo #seeyourcity #NYC #eatingNY #NGINYC #newforkcity #nycfood #ebdailypic #brooklynbased #manhattan #brooklyn #bigapple #newyorknewyork #williamsburg #bk

I mean, I celebrate coffee most days. But apparently yesterday was coffees official day in the sun! ⠀ ⠀ In honour if one of my favourite beverages a photo of me enjoying my own sunbeam and a cup of the magical elixir in one of my favourite secret NYC coffee patios. ⠀ ⠀ On another note, I am writing up some coffee related articles for @saveurmagazine, so stay tuned for some more coffee themed content! ⠀ ⠀
