Final Exam and Oh the Stress…

I’m pretty sure that I have mentioned at least once in the past posts I’ve made here, that I’ve been going to school for interior design. Its been really great! I love learning about base building and fabrics etc, and even though its been tough, the communications class as well. The first problem I’ve found…

Loving your Mamma.

It’s nearly 7 am. I try to avoid waking up this early if I can. I need my beauty sleep these days. I mean I always need my sleep but now in my 40’s with a toddler, I need my sleep even more than ever. Being somewhat rested, (slept most of the night for once)…

Qualicum, Coffee and the Beach…

It was 5 am and I literally had 1.5 ft of the edge of my mattress. This is what it is like every night. Usually, it’s a king-sized bed. I could move her, but then she’d wake up, and she might not go back to sleep. Do I risk it? … Yes, I did. She…

Mamaste…

I’ve been tossed up lately about what to call this blog. What is it really about? Who am I? What do I represent? What do I want to say? And to whom? I think I’m finding myself in this mess of my 40’s. I’m a mom and that’s the biggest part, but there are so…

4th Anniversary Surprise Weekend Away

Wow! My husband SPOILED me! And by me I mean me, my mom AND my daughter! (I did choose no new floors for now over this epic weekend, but it was soooo worth it!). We haven’t had a ton of family time this summer as Michael and I have both been so busy with home…

When Friends are Truly Friends…

I realize that I’ve already written a post today, but maybe this will make up for all the days I was too occupied living life to put it on paper. The irony is that no sooner had I published my last post, that I had this heart wrenching experience, giving me another topic to share….

Emotional Days…

Do you ever just feel emotional and think ‘why am I feeling sad?’ No reason visible in your day for feeling that way, just emotional. Your eyes are teary, you cry at every little heartfelt story… Like last week, when my mom told me of my sisters friend who helped an old man huffing up…

Creativity Flows when Company is Coming.

Have you ever noticed that? That when you have a party or an event or even a family dinner, you get into super energizer bunny clean and decorate mode? It happens to me! Every single time! My husband and I bought our first house together a year ago June. We had big plans to renovate…

My Little Girl is growing up…

I felt a real blow to my emotional stomach today. My daughter fell while in the care of her sitter, I heard her crying and went to get her to snuggle her and she turned away from me wanting to stay in her sitter’s arms. I smiled and said, no problem and proceded to joke…

A Fresh Start.

Every day is a fresh start. A new beginning. Yesterday may have been the most incredible day of your life, the absolute worst day or your life or anything in between. Today has nothing to do with yesterday. Wake up fresh. Remind yourself of 5 things you’re grateful for, stretch, (admire the gorgeous little human […]
