Living Life In The Moment…And Loving It

For years, I’ve openly and eagerly shared almost every aspect of my life online. Whether here on the blog, on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, or event Facebook. But over the past couple of months – not only has so much changed in my life (personal and professional) but I’ve taken a step back. I’m sharing a little less, and attempting to live in the moment a little more.

This last weekend for example, we headed out to my cousins bat mitzvah on Saturday night, and then M’s cousins wedding on Sunday.

let’s bat mitzvah!

It was an incredibly busy weekend – but well worth it. I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t see my family nearly as often as I’d like to.

So when occasions like these come up, and we all get to be together – it’s comforting.

…he’s cute, I think I’ll keep him.

M and I have actually gotten up to quite a few fun things lately! Obviously, there was the move at the end of April. So now we have officially been in our place more than a month…and guess what – we don’t hate each other yet! LOL In fact, I think we’ve grown even closer. There’s a comfortable level in our relationship – it’s nice. I’m going to share another post about the whole move in the coming days though, so stay tuned for that!

One of the most fun recent memories we have is going to the TFC game. My friends at Sonnet Insurance invited us out, and with M being a huge TFC fan and me never even being to a game – I knew we’d have a blast. And boy was I NOT wrong. It was SO much fun. The crowd there is electric! Plus I got to meet some awesome new people, including winners from the giveaway of tickets I hosted!

My first ever @torontofc game and they won 5-nil…I think we need to keep going, as good luck charms! #OptimismCan

I love partnering with Sonnet Insurance on these types of things because as a whole, their company like to promote optimism and positivity. I was chatting with one of the Sonnet team members about their #OptimismCan hashtag, and she said:

For all of our sponsorships, we want to enhance fan experiences and celebrate the passion that Canadians have for sports, arts and culture. With optimism, anything is possible, and we want people to tell us what optimism can do for them!

How awesome is that?! They also do a lot of outreach with community partners, like the Ronald McDonald House, for example. Which, is AHHHMAZING. And – not only are they partnered with the Blue Jays (yay!) and the Official Insurance Partner of Toronto FC, but they also signed a multi-year agreement with the National Hockey League (NHL®), becoming the official Canadian home and auto insurance partner of the NHL.

I’m sure you’ve seen their ads and their incredibly engaging social media channels. I encourage you to check them out – especially if you’re in the market for new home and/or auto insurance!

Side note – this post is #NotSponsored – I just really love the company as a whole. 🙂

Now, don’t be too concerned. While I may have scaled back a bit on the sharing of my private life…there are a lot of fun things coming up for your girl Jenn Jenn. From events and giveaways – to trips (we’re heading to Boston next month!) and fun things at home – there’s plenty to keep an eye out for.

In the meantime – hit me up on Twitter with all of your Bean Town suggestions!

Stay awesome!
