Everything Unscripted is a family lifestyle blog featuring Family, Food, Travel & Fun in Atlantic Canada! We support local businesses, highlight what’s awesome about Atlantic Canada, and promote our East Coast provinces through our travel and lifestyle pieces.
My name’s Ruth Ann, the voice and creator behind Everything Unscripted. We are a family of 4 +3 furbabies, husband Doug, and two boys (17 yr old and 8 yr old), our two cats, Max and Flash, and our pup Bo. We share our family adventures as we explore where we live, through road trips, weekend wanders, beach visits, and various outings on the East Coast of Canada.
I am a true believer in sharing the reality just outside the perfectly cropped photo! You know exactly what I mean, we all have stacks of papers, dirty laundry, and toys left out, or some variation of that “clutter” or perhaps the better term is, “reality”! I am open about my struggles with anxiety, finding balance, getting healthy, and pretty much everything.
The reason I started my blog was and has always been, to share what I am doing in hopes it will help just one other person who may need to hear what I am going through and not feel alone. They may need help planning meals, or simple recipes, help stretching their budget, or are looking for a fun and frugal vacation idea for their family…and the list goes on. I share our reality, knowing there are others who can relate and perhaps learn from our experiences.
In addition to blogging, I enjoy speaking at events and teaching seminars, presenting many topics from being your authentic self, or how to meal plan, to the 10 week “Food For Thought” program on feeding your family healthy choices on a tight budget. I love the challenge of creating unique presentations for new audiences.
So, that is me and this business in a nutshell. Be sure to follow us on Instagram @everything_unscripted and over on the Facebook Page. I encourage you to join our Facebook community, of over 21,000, join in the conversations, explore the video section and experience the social interactions of this community.
