My little man wanted a pirate themed party this year and we had some fun planning it. Since his birthday is in November it makes planning his party tricky since the weather isn’t nice enough to be outside anymore but there isn’t snow (yet thankfully) so you can’t really have a winter themed party! I started thinking about what would be fun for my little 3 year old and his friends to do. I had heard lots of good things about The Children’s Art Factory but I had never been so I decided to look into it. After doing a little research it sounded like something him and his little friends would enjoy! So we booked the venue and started planning. Once I had his invitations printed I placed them in a bottle with some sand (I ended up using brown sugar), sea shells and wrapped some twine around the cork and added a label with each little pirates name on it and my little man hand delivered them to all his friends. The Children’s Art Factory ended up being the perfect choice the kids all had so much fun and each one got to paint and decorate their own treasure chest and sword. The enjoyed playing with all the amazing things available to them at the Factory. I have to take a minute to talk about his cake! It was amazing and Dana from The Cake Place once again delivered the most delicious and cutest cake ever. Every little detail of the cake was perfect and Cove thought the cake was so “awesome” he wanted to show everyone his birthday cake. Thank you Dana you’re the best and never disappoint!

  • You my girl are going to do great things - you already are! This girl never ceases to amaze me and make me proud to be her mama! Her teacher asked to speak to us yesterday - we had no idea why -  her teacher started to share with us  about how kind Gray is and how proud she is of Gray. There is a student in their class that has special needs and Gray has taken such good care of of this little boy since the beginning of the year - she plays with him at recess and make sure he is always included. Her teacher was so impressed by how kind and loving Gray is and of course I wasn’t surprised but The tears did fall as I looked at my girl beaming with  pride. You see this sweet girl has an ability to see people for who they are on the inside. She has been talking about this little boy for the past month and a half when she shares about her day and I had no idea he had special needs or that he was any different than she was cause she doesn’t see him that way she sees him as an equal. How different this world would be if we all treated each other as equal and shared love and kindness with each other!
  • Mirror, mirror on the wall...
It doesn’t matter if I’m short or tall...
If I have skinny legs or my hips are wide...
It only matters who I am inside...
Blue eyes, brown eyes, black or green...
What makes me most beautiful can not be seen...
When you look at me, don’t judge me by my parts...
The most beautiful about me is my heart  #myhomesense
  • Happy Thanksgiving! I hope however you’ve celebrated whether today or this weekend you spent it verbalizing to the ones you love how thankful you are for them! It would be silly of me to try and tag the ones I’m thankful for but I truly feel blessed and I hope those of you know who you are!
  • Fear: feeling induced by perceived danger, a response to a specific stimulus occurring in the present, or in anticipation or expectation of a future. Fear of heartbreak? Fear of the diagnosis? Fear of abandonment? Fear of judgment? Fear of peoples perception of you? Fear of your bank account number? Fear is everywhere and I for one struggle with it! I find music to be a powerful tool in my life and these lyrics have been repeatedly playing over in my head this past week- I wake up singing them I sing them all day long and yet they aren’t just lyrics they are a declaration of truth that I am holding onto “There is no fear and no shame
Your love won't rise above
Every failure sealed within Your grave
For love has overcome”
  • Canadian Thanksgiving is days away and as much as this dreary rain would love to drag me down I can’t help but feel so grateful for so many things in my life! I have started keeping a running list of things throughout my day that I am thankful for like not just the obvious big things but the little ones too like a hot cup of coffee and a warm fuzzy blanket - do you know what that does for my thought process when I focus on all I do have to be thankful for!! What are you thankful for today?
  • Kissing another weekend goodbye but it was a good one! Anyone else wondering  where September went and how is it October tomorrow already!? Exciting things are happening in October so I’m not complaining but I feel like I blinked and September was over!
