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 […]

When You Finally Relax after Your Week Vacation..

We’ve been here a week, in Salmon Arm, B.C.. I have several house sitters, so my mind is at peace about our home. The thing is, that in general, I’ve just been high strung and out of sorts and hibernating from being over stimulated as a mamma. I’ve had a lot of alone time this…

How to have a Good Day..

Sometimes we have off days. Days that from the moment we open our eyes to the moment we pass out with our babies at 9 (probably before them), it just feels like an off day! You feel more tired than usual. You spend time in person or on the phone with sad/angry people and because…

444, My Revelation and Some Wine

This morning my daughter woke up at 4:44 am. I’m not sure if numbers mean anything to you, but I see repeating numbers as a sign. I have googled 4:44 because it’s come back over and over in the past few months. This is what i found: 444┬áis telling me to have faith and be…

Taking Time for Me

So this middle of the night writing seems to have become a trend for me! I keep falling asleep with my girl around 9/9:30pm. She snuggles me up close and holds my hands saying, ‘i love you mommy’. I just rest in that moment (while listening to the sound machine rain in the back ground)…
