A True Ghost Story. Haunting My Child: Part 1


Our last house was haunted. I tell this story over and over, but this ghost story still gives me chills. So far, so good at Blue Moon Cottage- no ghosts. This is an old story and I can’t believe I never shared it before now- probably because I was too freaked out. We moved into our last rental (last rental…

My name is Tianna and it’s a pleasure to meet you! I wanted to do a quick re-introduction of myself since I have a few new people coming over to read. This adds to the info in my Welcome page where I talk about my family, where I currently live and why I’m gluten-free. Here I will just add some…

Vacation vibin' at Huntington Beach, California

Our Long Weekend in Huntington Beach, California.


Our long weekend in Huntington Beach, California could also be titled, “What I Ate in Cali” because the food was so incredible! And, also, I love eating. We just got back from the beach and I am already dreaming of going back! We won this trip to Huntington Beach through Josh’s outstanding achievements at work, so I was all the…

We’re Going To California!


Off we go to California!! A weekend trip to Huntington Beach, to be exact. The trip is a gift from Josh’s boss in lieu of a raise this year, due to the recession. The owner only has a few of us going, about 20 I think, so it should be fun. I can’t wait to hit the beach and maybe…

Memories of Getting the Mail With My Mom.


We are under a winter snow warning! This has been the snowiest winter I’ve seen in Calgary since I moved here in 2007. A lot of the snow has gathered on our trees and mailboxes, as you can see here, in the blue early morning light:     A lot of people hate that we don’t have door-to-door delivery anymore…

My Daughter’s Confidence.


My daughter is amazing. She is smart, fiery, caring and forward-thinking. She is a champion of causes and a voracious reader. She can be opinionated and is quick to anger, but those propel her forward instead of letting her give up. A professional once told us she is, “Highly attuned, highly sensitive and impulsive” and was quick to point out…

Brainwave: How I Saved My Mornings.


I am not a morning person. I’ve tried. I’ve read countless articles saying that you just had to switch your schedule to adapt to it: don’t drink coffee after 2 p.m., go to bed early and at the same time, don’t drink water before bed so you’re not up peeing all night, eat a banana before you go to sleep,…

My Kid, The Loner


My son has a very active imagination. Alone, he can play with Lego or action figures for hours and make up several new rich and layered stories. He doesn’t get lonely. Socializing with kids during class-time at school and playing with his sister for an hour after school is usually enough for him. After school, he is often exhausted and…
