Hello! My name is Lindsey.


That is me. I am 31 years old, live in Toronto with my manfriend Evan, and I work in marketing communications for an executive search firm.

You should probably also know that I pretty much have two moods:


Or hungry

I am naturally an easy-going and very happy person…unless it has been too long since my last meal. Once I let myself get too hungry, food is all I am able to think about or concentrate on, and my grumpy pants tend to come on with a vengeance.

I originally started this blog as a way to follow my life and eats as I tried to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle, while remaining full and HAPPY. Though I still strive to live this way, I discovered that posting purely about my food and workouts was getting stale quickly, and I don’t feel that it was truly my blog’s calling, if you will.

I would rather be funny (or try to be, at least). And what I really want to do, is go on adventures and tell stories.

And draw pictures (sometimes!)

Sometimes pictures of cats riding unicorns into the sunset.

Mostly pictures of my adventuring though.

(You can find all of my illustrated stories here)

I am very lucky to have had a full and fun life. I had an extremely colourful childhood, and over the years I have gotten myself into some interesting situations. I grew up basically in the middle of nowhere (on a lake, and in a forest), I was an impulsive and slightly mischievous child, and I will pretty much do anything for a story. These characteristics have led to a healthy amount of chaos finding me.

And I like it.

You can contact me at happyorhungry [at] gmail [dot] com if you have any questions!  I welcome all feedback.

(PS – This is not a diary, or a journal of my life. Only the items I believe are of interest and I’m willing to share with the internet world. I like to tell my friends that this is my life in PG)
