  • Wasn’t yesterday Thursday? It feels like the weekend takes forever to get here and flies by once it arrives. We spent the weekend at the cottage (again) as we usually do in the summer. So I thought today I would do a recap of how we spent this weekend.

    On Thursday we picked my

  • A few months ago I started to get these really intense headaches and the progressively got worse and became a daily thing to the point where I would wake up with this “headache” and go to sleep with it. I am not one who frequents the doctors office often especially for myself.

  • Yes, I’m pretty much obsessed and in love with gold. It is now my personal metal of choice in terms of jewelry (except for my wedding band and engagement ring) and I love it as an accent in my home decor. I have a decent collection of gold accessories throughout my home. I love that

    “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”… I guess technically that should say its the most wonderful season of the year. Summer is by far my favourite season and as thankful as I am to live in a country that fully

  • Gratitude is a powerful thing... I was thinking of those who lived through the holocaust today and I was instantly so thankful that we get to chose to stay home and be safe that we can still go in our car for drives for a change of scenery that even though we are living in quarantine away from people we are not in hiding we aren’t scared for our lives and we are healthy!! #covid19 #gratitudeattitude
  • We are living uncharted days but we are making the most of them! Sometimes we just need out of the house for change of scenery, sometimes we need more cuddles and everyday we are thankful for our health and each other!
  • So thankful for this amazing trip and that we made it home healthy and safe! Happy to be quarantined together for the next few weeks... finding the joy in the unexpected! #covid_19 #disneydream #thespinksdodisney
  • We took this photo when we returned from our vacation and simply needed to buy some groceries and toilet paper was one of the things on our list... we had just arrived back and had heard a lot on social media about stores running out of toilet paper so when we found some we thought it would be funny to take the photo but today the same stores shelf is empty... there is nothing funny about this virus it needs to be take seriously and people need to use common sense and not respond in fear and panic! Just to clarify we bought one package of toilet paper not 4 - Yes be smart, be prepared, wash your hands (LOTS)  but don’t freak out! Be kind to each other be smart and safe! #covid #covid_19
  • I’ve been struggling with a lot of anxiety since returning from our vacation and than I saw something @judahsmith posted and one thing he said was “Our anxiety doesn’t come from thinking of the future rather from our desire to control it” WOW I was literally stopped dead in my scrolling and maybe it’s just me (I doubt it) but this resonates with me... anyone else? #letgoandletgod #micdrop #anxiety
  • Being a girl/woman is hard - raising them is even harder! I pray they will always see their true worth and value they will always know how deeply loved they are and that they should celebrate their uniqueness and recognize they can do anything they put their minds to!
