A few weeks ago – as part of a family anthology my sister in law is putting together – I got to take part in a special pre-mother’s day event. A delicious brunch and some catching up soon made way for the real ‘business’ of the day.
We had each been asked to do a [...]
I went to yoga the other night. It was a hot yoga class at a studio where I used to be a regular. I used to go three times a week, seriously, I was in the best shape of my life and I loved the sweaty exertion, the endorphins that kept me buzzing for hours after, the way [...]
Okay so April’s finally here and part of my resolutions have been um, let’s say resolved…
You may remember that as part of New Year’s I resolved not to buy Bunny any clothes until April.
That was tough and in all honesty I failed – and here’s where:
I bought Bunny 2 pair of pants [...]
So it’s been a rough few weeks at our house – we’ve all been slammed pretty hard with the flu / cold combo (I’m starting to forget a time when I could breath through my nose) and we lost one of our two cats.
Sabine was my first ever cat. I have a mother whose extremely allergic [...]
One of my favourite things to do with my family is have a mini-adventure. I love getting outside, moving and enjoying different activities together, and Ottawa is full of opportunities for this kind of toddler friendly mini-adventure!
Our most recent trek was out to the Sugar Bush! We picked a glorious Saturday morning [...]
You may know, I’m on the Pinterest, and if you’re not personally on the Pinterest consider this fair warning: Stay off: You are perfectly awesome without it and you probably need all the hours in your days for your life and such, if you don’t care to heed this warning… well, welcome!
Anyway, Easter is coming [...]
Bunny’s a climber – and a jumper – and has been scaring the living daylights out of me in that crib for the last few months. It was time to get her in a big girl bed.
Getting our girl into a bed caused a chain reaction of re-organization, room switching and therefore redecorating [...]
I’m working from home today so I’m in cords and a sweatshirt, all comfortable and cross legged in front of the lap top, and I realize I’m completely, head to toe, socks and all, dressed in GREY. Kinda matches the weather of these last snowstorm(s) and closing days of March.
I’ve been making a lot of stuff [...]
Okay so my husband is away. He’s on an extended (almost 2 week) work trip and I’m mid way through surviving his absence.
It’s funny – no matter how much I think I do everything around the house the reality sinks in when he’s away – he does a fair bunch of stuff too – [...]
Two is not a bad age for arts and crafts but it can be a little tricky getting [...]
