PLEASED TO MEET YOU!
Hi there! I’m Tianna Morison. I’m a 30-something year old writer, Canadian mom of two, and book addict.With my husband, two young kids, and two cats we: game, craft, laugh, budget, learn, attempt to garden, and try to live as healthfully as possible.
My passion for writing has led me to blogging. I have always been happiest writing. I grew up in a small Saskatchewan town and my downtime was spent writing fictional short stories. I even won a few writing awards in school for excellence in short story writing.
In fact, for a long time, I thought I wanted to be a journalist. I got halfway there, receiving my B.A. in English, and was told I would make a better columnist. I guess that means I have always been a blogger at heart!
I have lived a few places; Saskatchewan, Japan, and Vancouver, but my heart eventually led me to Calgary, AB. Here, I fell in love with my husband and then the city itself. I love my adopted hometown fiercely, finding it the perfect balance of “prairie-city” and mountain life. I like that a good hike in the mountains isn’t too far away and I love that Calgary itself is full of parks and family-friendly activities. We feel blessed to be able to raise our family in this eclectic and vibrant city with its quiet, tucked away neighbourhoods. There is truly something for everyone in Calgary.
I am now a mom of two elementary-school kids and have grown a lot as a parent and a person. I grew up sedentary and close-minded but I now embrace fitness, meditation and gardening as some of my fave hobbies. I wanted to blog to share my successes and my failures- and also as a way to reach out to other parents. It truly takes a village, and together our voices are strong and we share the same struggles and joys, even if that village is the internet and the support is just a friendly blog post that you relate to. At least, that’s what I do when I am feeling lost or inadequate- ask parents I know for help or research other blogs!
A lot has happened since I started this blog in 2009 as a new mom. This blog has expanded from an online diary to a way to ask for help, share recipes and create an online resource for myself. If you have things to share with me as well (your viewpoints on sensitive kids, recipes or even cute cartoons, for example), please do!
Join me as I bumble my way through this wonderful life, laugh with me as I babble, and groan with me as I struggle through mom life (and its huge learning curve). If I find quick crafts that work, easy gluten-free recipes, herb gardening tricks or simple organization tips, I will share them here.
I am a sucker for cute cat videos, anything Hello Kitty, bad puns, and cute photos of pigs, so feel free to share those with me anytime!
