Hi and thanks for visiting Cheeriolala – a blog I’ve been calling home since 2009. Things started off innocently enough – a friend dared me to start a blog, so I did! As I started to write about all the crazy things I was up to as a newly single thirty-something gal, I discovered something new about myself – I love to write.
Over the years, this blog has chronicled so many of the twists and turns that my life has taken, from meeting my partner, The Acadian, to quitting my job to find my purpose, re-entering the workforce in a role I love and now, as a mom to two of the coolest little ladies around. I’ve gone from Crossfit fanatic to happy-go-lucky exerciser, I’ve dabbled in veganism to then ditch it for paleo. I’m also a retired angel-card reader and reiki practioner. Yeah, I’m not afraid to try on all the pretty hats! The one thing that never changes though is that I’m always unabashedly me. And that’s absolutely my favorite thing to be.
These days, being Sylvie is all about taking good care of myself and my family. It may sound like I’ve settled down, but living in la-la land is never dull. You’ll hear all about the day-to-day with the gang, my practical tips and our silly shenanigans. But you’ll get to know the voice that keeps digging for life’s meaning. The one that supports her husband’s talent and musical aspirations while at the same time urging her to write and share with the world. You’ll catch a glimpse of the heart that’s been stolen by my trio of brown-eyed loves.
I’m so glad you’ve taken the time to stop by and get to know me! If you’d like to introduce yourself, leave a comment – don’t be shy!
