Quiet Mornings


I didn’t sleep very well last night- kept waking up randomly. I finally gave up an hour before my alarm goes off at 7:30 am this morning. My husband looked like he had seen a ghost since I am NEVER up at the same time as him. I know a lot of you probably get up at 5 am( or…

What Love Is To Me


I didn’t know what love was until I met Josh. That is corny but totally true. I knew lust, obsession, infatuation, adoration and worship.

My kids came out as independent old souls with their own opinions about everything- including music. I feel that I am less their teacher and more their guide through this life.

School’s Out For Summer!

Happy 34th Birthday Husband!


Happy 34th birthday to my husband! Josh was born in B.C. and I was born in Saskatchewan, but we met in Alberta at a Halloween party when Josh was 23 years old. I’ve known you for 11 years, Husband!   Yes, we have known each other for 11 years, but it feels like more- in a good way. The minute…

What Kind Of Party Invitation Kid Do You Have?


Does your kid hem and haw when they get a birthday party invitation? Or do they jump at the chance? I was a jump at the chance kid, until a certain age. My kids are of the hem and haw variety. They don’t connect with a ton of kids, so when they do and they get a party invitation, it’s…
