Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Sylvan TV Shoot

I spent all of last week in Vancouver casting and shooting our Sylvan TV spot for Q1. It was absolutely beautiful there! The leaves were all changing colors and falling from the trees. The leaves there are HUGE (see pic below of leaf the size of my head). It was cold and on occassion rainy. I went with 3 of my clients, my 2 art directors, my writer and my producer. I do have to say it was very strange being in another country when the election took place. I voted before I left, but the television coverage just wasn't the same in Canada. They kept switching back and forth to the hockey game that night (which I have NO interest in haha). Our team had a good time together, but I definitely found myself homesick and ready to come home to Stephen and my pups. Luckily, Stephen wrote me a little note for each day I was gone so that it would help make time go by a little quicker. It was really sweet!

We shot at two different locations, a Sylvan center of course and then we shot at a beautiful home that was a horse ranch, it was absolutely breath taking out there. We did manage to get in a few good times. Howard (my writer), decided to do open mic night at a comedy club while we were there, so we got in some good laughs. We got to do a little shopping (we all tried on fun hats) on Granville Island which was fun. This was the view from my hotel room, so it was at least a nice view while talking to Stephen on the phone every night.

I couldn't wait to come home, so Sunday didn't come soon enough. Once I finally got home from an extra long work week my sweet hubby had flowers waiting in the house that he cleaned, with a fresh cut yard and an extra organized garage (I think I have Steve and his dad to thank for the garage)! I couldn't be more thankful to have such an amazing husband!

Luckily, Stephen and I had saved some extra vacation days, so we took Monday and Tuesday off to spend some time together. It was a great relaxing couple of days, and I am so happy to be home! =)
