Welcome to Hummingbird!
I don’t know about you, but coming up with a name for anything is always the hardest part. After already having a blog that was named after me, I decided I didn’t want my name in the title of this blog. Which got me thinking. People always talk about having a spirit animal, and I thought to myself, what is my spirit animal?
With a little bit of research, I settled on the hummingbird. Hummingbird is most definitely my spirit animal.
Why you may ask? Here is the meaning of hummingbird;
The hummingbird generally symbolizes joy and playfulness, as well as adaptability. Additional symbolic meanings are:
- Being more present
- Lightness of being, enjoyment of life
- Bringing playfulness and joy in your life
- Lifting up negativity
- Swiftness, ability to respond quickly
- Resiliency, being able to travel great distances tirelessly
For those of you who know me personally, that is a pretty spot on description of who I am as a person.
For those of you that don’t know me my name is Kayla Findlay, I am a lover of soy lattes, good food, wine and reality tv. Consumed by wanderlust and seeking the next adventure. I am just a girl who wants to see the world and spread a little kindness along the way.
I started my first blog in 2013 and I used it as a way to procrastinate my way through university. If there was ever a paper I didn’t want to do, I would write a blog post instead.
Fast forward to today and I am a university graduate, and I work full time at an event management company.
My overall goal for this blog is for it to be a travel blog. However, I am using 2017 as the year that I actually don’t travel. I am paying off debt, and saving for bigger and better trips in the future. With that said, I am using this year to write about local travel (in my hometown), how I am surviving on my very small monthly budget, the steps I go through in order to plan a trip, and all of the fun stuff in between.
I hope you enjoy my blog!
