I know everyone complained and posted about this today, but I'm going to do it too. It fucking snowed. On the last day of summer. I know it's Canada, but. #SaskatchewanSummer
Are there ever moments that just stop you in your tracks? This moment was one of them. On my very first day of my road trip I was touring through Kindersley, SK with my friend Trent. As the sun was setting, he was showing me what he knew about Kindersley. We were on the south side of town, and I saw this 'Saskatchewan' rail car...so I made Trent stop his truck so I could take this photo. It's one of my favorites, because of the sky and the grass. So Saskatchewan, I think. Have you taken any photos lately that really capture the feeling you're experiencing? Tag us in them! Or send via DM...we'd be thrilled to see them! Cheers to those moments, Amanda #groundedgoodness #spreadinggoodness #ggroadtrip #ggsisterhood #roadtrip2018 #summerroadtrip #roadtripadventures #adventuresinsaskatchewan #tourismsaskatchewan #toursaskatchewan #livingsask #exploresask #adventuresincanada #livingyxe #livingyqr #supportlocal #womenentrepreneur #saskatchewansummer #summer2018 #WESK #womensupportwomen #womensupportingwomen #ohcanada #canadianlife #canadalife #travelcanada #tourcanada #momentscaptured #adaywellspent

That time I had never gone kayaking before but then Ellie from @gridroadclothingco invited me to Rocanville to go kayaking and it was THE BEST conversation and physical activity and so good for the soul and I was so glad that I said yes.⠀ ⠀ What can YOU say yes to, that lights you up?⠀ ⠀ Cheers to run-on sentences because they are the best and also I want to make you laugh because we can never laugh too much except when you accidentally pee your pants then it's too much,⠀ Amanda⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #groundedgoodness #spreadinggoodness #ggroadtrip #ggsisterhood #roadtrip2018 #summerroadtrip #roadtripadventures #adventuresinsaskatchewan #tourismsaskatchewan #toursaskatchewan #livingsask #exploresask #adventuresincanada #livingyxe #livingyqr #supportlocal #womenentrepreneur #saskatchewansummer #summer2018 #WESK #womensupportwomen #womensupportingwomen #ohcanada #canadianlife #canadalife #travelcanada #tourcanada #momentscaptured #adaywellspent

Watching summer go by like... 🤷🏻‍♀️ @amandaruller . . #fallfeels #wheredidsummergo #howdareyou
How lucky are we to live in a place where the food is amazing at almost every corner of the city. One of our favourite brunch places in Saskatoon is @driftvistalounge , especially during rooftop season. It feels like we are beachside every time we visit. After an amazing summer, we are wrapping up with a few more summer explorations around the city. #patiobrunch #exploresaskatoon #saskatooning #september #summer #food #cafe #brunchyxe #yxe #dontgosummer #brunchdrinks #mexicanfood #staycation #saskatchewansummer

Enjoying the view from a lookout along "mud creek trail". No filter was used as the natural beauty is breathtaking. Along this trail we explored the transition between two ecological regions: the northern edge of Aspen parkland forest blending with the southern edge of coniferous forest. We will be blogging on this hike very soon. . . #nofilter #exploresask #travelfamily #ehwanderingfamily #travel #canadaexplored #canada #yxemom #saskatchewansummer #stillsummer #saskatchewan #saskmom #panationalpark #waskesiu #nationalparkcanada #sask #momlife #momof3 #momofthree #dadofthree #explorecanada #travelcanada #canadatravel

Guess what?! I had the chance to sit down with Brittany Reid (@brittanycreid ) for her 'How to B' Podcast in July...and the episode is now Live!⠀ ⠀ We spoke candidly about stillness, traveling, and Grounded Goodness decals!

+13 and cloudy. Yet, we are off to paddleboard and kayak a couple Gem Lakes. Long live summer! 🎉🎉 What are you doing this long weekend (well at least in Canada)? . . #exploresask #saskatchewan #gemlakes #saskatchewansummer #ehwanderingfamily #momofthree #momof3 #dadof3 #parenthood #momlife #outdooradventures #keephydrated #paddleboarding #paddleboard #canada #explorecanada #canadaexplored

After a day of rain, cloud and cold, the skies opened. And became the land of living skies. Mr E told us scary campfire stories as we are s'mores (made with amazing cookies. We will share our top this week). I love watching the sunset as we have amazing ones in Saskatchewan. #exploresask #saskatchewansummer #saskatchewan #candlelake #summer #camping #glamping #campfires #momlife #ehwanderingfamily #momof3 #dadof3 #canadaexplored #canada
First time fishing. Mr E is excited. Miss K is playing in the wet grass. And I'm taking pictures . Ah bliss #summer #saskatchewansummer #saskatchewan #whatwedoforkids #parenting #momof3 #momofthree #dadof3 #momlife #yxeblogger

How are you?! I am now at home in St. Brieux! I’m so grateful for the warm welcome I received at Smiley’s this afternoon. Seeing familiar faces makes my heart so happy, after 7 weeks on the road.⠀ ⠀ I’m going to take the weekend to relax, sleep, and simply be. I will finish off my recap and thank you posts next week, so keep an eye out for them! See you then!⠀ ⠀ Thank you for following along on my adventures this summer. I am so so so grateful for you. ⠀ ⠀ Hugs,⠀ Amanda . . .

Are there scenes you dream of going back to? This is a detail from a painting I posted a couple of days ago. I wanted a setting for the flowers but not one that took all the attention. And I've always loved places where you can see until tomorrow. What are your favourite imagined landscapes? I'd love to hear in the comments. #paintingdetail #oilonboard #oilonpanel #oilpainter #oilpainting #paintingprocess #cloudsandsky #imaginedlandscapes #imaginarylandscape #stilllifeart #stilllifepainting #vessel #contemporaryrealism #contemporarylandscape #saskatchewansummer #prairielandscape

It’s the last day of the road trip! I’m making my way home to St. Brieux, SK!⠀ ⠀ 47 days. 5300 kms. 15 events. And I met over 1000 people in person. In person! What?!?⠀ ⠀ It has been a whirlwind. I’m exhausted but my heart is so full it feels like it may burst. I think this is what living life fully might look like. Huh. Who would have thought? Not me. ⠀ I’m going to miss being in my car. The calming miles on the road, seeing the different scenery, rocking out to the Sask Sisterhood playlist.⠀ ⠀ But I’m also not going to miss being in my car. Hauling bags back and forth, moving locations every 2-3 days, trying not to be a jerk driver because of the decals on my car (haha. No speeding tickets for me this summer!).⠀ ⠀ Overall though, I wouldn’t change this summer for anything. It has indeed cracked me open. And I’m so excited to see what’s next (book, anyone?!).⠀ ⠀ Thank YOU for joining me on this ride. I’m so grateful for you.⠀ ⠀ If you’ve been following along, what’s been your favourite part of the road trip? I’d LOVE to hear, in the comments below! (Or send me a DM!)⠀ ⠀ Hugs,⠀ Amanda⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #groundedgoodness #spreadinggoodness #ggroadtrip #ggsisterhood #roadtrip2018 #summerroadtrip #roadtripadventures #adventuresinsaskatchewan #tourismsaskatchewan #toursaskatchewan #livingsask #exploresask #adventuresincanada #livingyxe #livingyqr #supportlocal #womenentrepreneur #saskatchewansummer #summer2018 #WESK #womensupportwomen #womensupportingwomen #ohcanada #canadianlife #canadalife #travelcanada #tourcanada #momentscaptured #adaywellspent

Did you know? I planted the seed for my road trip last December! I had no clue that it would turn into a life-changing experience: one full of connection, new confidence, and so much coffee. 😊⠀ ⠀ On my second last day, I would like to thank my team for the behind the scenes work they’ve done. It’s been so much work, sweat, and tears. Ups, downs, pulling together to get it done with a lot of heart. I could not do it without them.⠀ ⠀ Because one thing I know for sure now? We’re all better when we work together. Grow together.⠀ ⠀ Thank you, Grounded Goodness and 1st Choice Graphics teams. You hold the biggest space in my heart. I will be doing bigger thank you posts next week once I’ve had a chance to sleep...but in the meantime, please know that I love the crap out of each and every one of you.⠀ ⠀ Hugs,⠀ Amanda⠀ . . .⠀ #bettertogether ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #groundedgoodness #spreadinggoodness #ggroadtrip #ggsisterhood #roadtrip2018 #summerroadtrip #roadtripadventures #adventuresinsaskatchewan #tourismsaskatchewan #toursaskatchewan #livingsask #exploresask #adventuresincanada #livingyxe #livingyqr #supportlocal #womenentrepreneur #saskatchewansummer #summer2018 #WESK #womensupportwomen #womensupportingwomen #ohcanada #canadianlife #canadalife #travelcanada #tourcanada #momentscaptured #adaywellspent
I'm on the home stretch! I'm on Day 44 of 47 of my road trip! And did you know? I'm writing a book this fall, all about what I've learned over the past 7 weeks - yay! But in the meantime, here's a sneak peek at a few of the lessons I've learned:⠀ ⠀ 1) EVERYONE craves connection: friendship, laughter, genuine support. (even the assholes crave it! Maybe even more so!)⠀ 2) our province is beautiful. In all ways. (You just might have to look harder sometimes.)⠀ 3) no person could ever drive ALL of Saskatchewan's roads.⠀ 4) borders matter, but don't really matter. I've touched 3 of our 4 borders, and people are the same on both sides.⠀ 5) coffee has been my saving grace all over this amazing province.⠀ ⠀ Keep an eye out for my book this fall! It's bound to be fun! (Get it? 'Bound?' As in, books? Hahaha. Need more coffee.)⠀ ⠀ Hugs,⠀ Amanda Photo: @adrienneperrot .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #groundedgoodness #spreadinggoodness #ggroadtrip #ggsisterhood #roadtrip2018 #summerroadtrip #roadtripadventures #adventuresinsaskatchewan #tourismsaskatchewan #toursaskatchewan #livingsask #exploresask #adventuresincanada #livingyxe #livingyqr #supportlocal #womenentrepreneur #saskatchewansummer #summer2018 #WESK #womensupportwomen #womensupportingwomen #ohcanada #canadianlife #canadalife #travelcanada #tourcanada #momentscaptured #adaywellspent
Did you know that 100% of the wheat used in our flour is grown and milled right here in Saskatchewan? Cheers to all those hardworking farmers! #thankafarmer #homegrown #saskatchewan #saskatchewansummer #harvesttime #bostonpizzahumboldt #bostonpizza #gatherround #prairielife
Saskatchewan Sisterhood Spotlight: Satya Santhi⠀ ⠀ I met Satya at our Sask Sisterhood event in Yorkton, and then went to her house for tea the following day! She moved to Canada from India (via Portugal) and is the owner of a small business called Rangeelaa (@rangeelaa ). ⠀ ⠀ Satya imports high quality clothing and bags from India, and is passionate about every aspect of her business! She earned her MBA in India, and is truly a powerhouse...she never gives up, regardless of the challenges that arise. I'm in awe of her.⠀ ⠀ As we spoke over tea, I learned that Satya is super down-to-earth, is proud of her son and her husband, and is very kind. I'm thrilled that I got to know Satya better during my time in Yorkton! I can't wait to see where she goes and what she does...because I know that whatever it is, it's going to be GOOD. :)⠀ ⠀ The Sask Sisterhood lesson? Never give up.⠀ ⠀ #saskatchewansisterhood ⠀ ⠀ Hugs,⠀ Amanda⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #groundedgoodness #spreadinggoodness #ggroadtrip #ggsisterhood #roadtrip2018 #summerroadtrip #roadtripadventures #adventuresinsaskatchewan #tourismsaskatchewan #toursaskatchewan #livingsask #exploresask #adventuresincanada #livingyxe #livingyqr #supportlocal #womenentrepreneur #saskatchewansummer #summer2018 #WESK #womensupportwomen #womensupportingwomen #ohcanada #canadianlife #canadalife #travelcanada #tourcanada #momentscaptured #adaywellspent

Quick #repost from @groundedgoodness ・・・ Do you have 10 minutes at noon on Monday?

I'm so grateful for Susan and her willingness to host...it's going to be a great evening. :)⠀ ⠀ 'See' you there!⠀ ⠀ Hugs,⠀ Amanda⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #groundedgoodness #spreadinggoodness #ggroadtrip #ggsisterhood #roadtrip2018 #summerroadtrip #roadtripadventures #adventuresinsaskatchewan #tourismsaskatchewan #toursaskatchewan #livingsask #exploresask #adventuresincanada #livingyxe #livingyqr #supportlocal #womenentrepreneur #saskatchewansummer #summer2018 #WESK #womensupportwomen #womensupportingwomen #ohcanada #canadianlife #canadalife #travelcanada #tourcanada #momentscaptured #adaywellspent
