Hello friends! I'm Nadine and I am so happy that you're here at The Beautiful Ordinary.

This is a place where I get to share my life with you. Share my hobbies, passions, ideas, family & adventures.

Bottom line- I want to inspire people. I want to make a difference. I want to know I am not alone. I want you to know that you're not alone.

You'll find all sorts of information here. I love to cook, bake, be outside, plan a party, craft, snuggle, be by myself, DIY, scrapbook, make lists, clean, take photos, make people happy & have a good glass of wine.

I often imagine a ping pong game being played inside my head as there are ideas and thoughts constantly being bounced around. This can be both a blessing and a curse. It never seems to slow down in there.

I live in Edmonton, Alberta Canada with my husband, daughter & our 3 cats. This family of mine makes me happy beyond measure.

In November of 2014 my Dad past away unexpectedly and my perspective on just about everything shifted. I realized that this beautiful life could be taken away from me at any second and I needed to start living the length and width of it. To stop doing things and pursuing relationships that didn't make me happy. That didn't serve me in some way, that didn't bring me joy and in turn didn't bring joy to my family.  This practice, and it is a daily practice, is not an easy task but I am determined to shine.

My life is by no means perfect, I struggle like all of you but when looked at as a whole, this life is pretty wonderful. I am grateful, so very grateful for this story.

My hope is that I will leave a little light where ever I go.

I am so happy you stopped by.

Nadine xo
