Snuggle Power Up 200% …..


  Today is a sick day for Hunter. What are your kids like when they are sick? Hunter is alternating between needing a lot of snuggles and being extremely cranky….like you would expect. You know your kids are not feeling well when you suggest a nap and they don’t even fight you on it! If he isn’t better tomorrow, off…

I Have a Smell.


This goofball is my heart outside of my chest. Her and my son are my everything. She is my little firecracker: my small, resourceful, highly empathetic and sensitive girl. So I was not surprised, nor offended, when she said this little gem the other day: “Mom. Your skin has a smell. Actually, everyone’s skin has a smell. Not their armpits,…

And The Universe Pulled Me….Believing In Signs


Do you believe in signs? I never used to, but I do now. I think things changed when I started to listen to what many call their “gut instinct” or “following your heart”. I would feel this panicky need to do something, or a pang of jealousy over someone’s accomplishment, or start seeing the same word over and over and…

It started with a couch. An unexpected purchase. When we found out we were moving, we knew that our L-shaped couch wouldn’t fit in to our new space.

Finding Love Ten Years Ago


Ten years ago yesterday, I was in a work friend’s tiny apartment (let’s call her M.), drinking boxed wine and trying to figure out where to go for Halloween parties that weekend. I didn’t even really want to be out for Halloween, it being my least favourite holiday, but decided that I should so that I could make friends, seeing…

Ghouls Night Out 2017: A Favourite of Ours.


If you live in Calgary, have you heard of Ghouls Night Out at Heritage Park? Have you ever gone? It’s a fun little Halloween event put on by the park and is great for all ages. We have gone for a few years now…I want to say four or five years in a row, since Hunter was really tiny. My…

Almost Two Months Since We Moved.


It has been almost two months since we moved from the other side of the city. I didn’t think it would feel very different, but it has, and that has shocked all of us. It is different in a lot of good ways. Our street is quieter, for one. Before, we lived on a very major road that everyone seemed…

Sneak Peek Of My Bathroom


Hello! I have the car today, so I am on my way to get groceries….I quickly snapped a pic in my lower level bathroom while I was in there adjusting my hat. I think I have to finally admit to myself that I have a thing for pink- my outfit matches this bathroom perfectly!  This is a sneak peek of…
