Sometimes Eventful is a lifestyle/outdoor family blog about getting outside, exploring and doing stuff. 

The Blogger Behind The Stories
My name is Gayle and I'm an Outdoor Family Blogger. I camp, hike, geocache, travel and experience new things with my little family.

Basically, I like to do stuff. Especially stuff outside. And then I like to tell people about the stuff I did, so that maybe they'll go do stuff too. If people learn a little something from my experiences, I'd be happy. 

I live in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. It's the city I grew up in and a city I love. Even though I like to do stuff that takes me away from home, you will still see my hometown featured here every now and then.

My daughter is Emma. My husband is Alex. Our dog is Buddy. They're also featured throughout this blog, because without them, life would not be Sometimes Eventful.

Thanks for getting to know me!  Sign up to get my posts delivered right to you and definitely leave comments.  And once you've done that, get outside and go explore! 

Halton Parks People Ambassador 2017 - 2018

I am thrilled to be a 2017-2017 Halton Parks People Ambassador! When I'm not canoeing, hiking or camping in Ontario's Provincial Parks, the Halton Conserservation Parks are my playground. We love everything Halton Parks have to offer, and have a great time sharing about the time we spend there.

Paddle In The Park Contest - Official Paddle Hider and Sponsor, 2017

In 2017, I made the jump from being a huge fan of the Paddle In The Park Contest to being an official Paddle Hider and Sponsor. The Paddle In The Park Contest aligns perfectly with the Sometimes Eventful philosophy of encouraging people to get out, go explore and do stuff in nature. Being a part of this contest was a natural fit - and a lot of fun! Find out more about my paddle hiding experience here: From Fangirl To Portage Queen


I am honoured to be a recipient of a 2014 Conservation Halton Award in the Media/Blogger Category.  If you are interested in reading the stories that contributed to this award, check out my Conservation Areas posts.
