Welcome to my blog! First let me introduce myself, I am Tanitha (like Tabitha with a ‘n’, not Taneeeetha) and Imaginary Sails is my little corner of the Internets.
First a little about me and my family: I married my high school crush in 2011, but we were way too scared of each other at the time we were actually in school together to be high school sweethearts! We actually barely spoke for five years after graduating before re-connecting and hitting it off again. He is without a doubt the love of my life. Neither of us is perfect, but we keep learning and growing and laughing and it has been an amazing ride so far. Last year we welcomed our silly, sticky, sweet little boy into our lives and cannot believe the joy, laughter (and work) it has added to our lives!
I am a part-time banker by day and a not so closet chocolate lover the rest of the time ;) you know among the baby wrangling and what not. I love all things water related, I love drinking it, I love looking at it, being in it, on it, around it, and under it – as a scuba diver. This is good because we live on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, (a 40 minute ferry ride from West Vancouver), we transplanted here in 2013 from the hustle and bustle of Surrey – what a change!
I hope to cultivate a positive and supportive online community that is real, fun, and that likes silly jokes and smoothies. If you like coffee, but sometimes tea, run on sentences, and appreciate the great outdoors I think we will get along great! I want this to be a safe place to share and hear opinions, offer support or insight where I can, ask questions, and hopefully where some will find inspiration. I can’t wait to share about this crazy road of parenthood we are on, but also so much more about life in general! As in, to my sweet readers and friends without kids, it won’t just be about barf and diapers!
I traveled a lot in my early twenties and although my priorities and responsibilities have evolved since then, meaning less (exotic anyways) travel lately, I can’t wait to share stories from my travel journals, musings, experiences and future plans too! I am definitely and adventurer at heart. I also had an unfortunate thing for foot pictures while I was traveling, here are my feet atop a temple at Tikal, Guatemala. Sorry, but I thought I should be upfront about this ;)…
I love the idea of being Super Woman that can do it all, but I really am not. I also love the idea of being super crafty and have so much fun getting ideas off of pinterest but I know my (serious and debilitating when it comes to crafting) limitations, I have very little artistic talent, get impatient and take project-ruining-short cuts, plus my time management skills are a work in progress. All that being said, I do like to find or come up with the odd super easy and quick project and if that’s your style I hope you’ll find some doable DIY here too.
Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you love it!
