I love the water – always have. Story goes: my mom taught me how to swim as a small child. True story, and a funny one because my mom can’t really swim all that well.
I always felt an ease in the water. I love the sense of weightlessness the ability to move on an [...]
June has slipped away from me entirely – I’ve been busy, the last few months have been, frankly, nuts in my life. I’m a sucker for taking on too much, for seeing a project or assignment or anything I want to do and deciding to go for it – even when I know I’m already [...]
A little while ago a pregnant colleague mentioned to me she was having a daughter and asked if I had any book recommendations – why yes I do! Here’s my top 3 to get you thinking about raising a daughter and all that entails:
I’ve been reading Think by Lisa Bloom and I’m [...]
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.

I bought Bunny 2 pair of pants [...]

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.
