  • With the cooler, cozier (is that even a word?) weather here it makes me want to grab a blanket, a hot cup of tea and curl up with a good book. I enjoy reading. I find it is a way to learn and increase my knowledge and understanding of things. Sometimes it’s an escape, other times its

  • With the fall weather already happening it is perfect time to get out my fall decor and to start shopping for a few new pieces to add to my decor this year. Pumpkins, dark rich colours, neutral wood textures are sorta of what we think of when it comes to fall decorating.  Autumn is also a

  • Wow what a weekend! I think I am finally catching my breath after a fun filled, busy weekend. As I type this post my thoughts about Blog Podium are still all over the place but I want to try and get some of them out in a sort of recap form. I went to Blog Podium not really knowing what to

  • Even though we are still a few days away from fall officially it seems like fall might just be here. Literally overnight we went from warm temps that had us in shorts and tees to long pants and sweaters. I will admit I am a summer girl at heart but I gladly am welcoming the change in

  • After a busy first week of September I am already exhausted and wondering how we are going to make it through the rest of the busy fall and don’t even want to think about how busy November and December are already looking. (although Christmas is my favourite time of year and November

  • Well did you survive the first day of school? Any of you mamas sending your little one for the first time? How did you manage? It’s hard to believe we are into fall but I do love the change of seasons. One of the things I love about living where I do is we get to experience all 4

  • It finally feels like fall around here - well actually this morning felt like winter and as pretty as all the fall colors are I’m kinda already excited for Christmas- it could be since it’s the most wonderful time of the year or because the stores are bringing out their holiday stuff already - so who puts their tree up in the beginning of November? 🙋🏼‍♀️ I feel like I should clarify I love dressing for the fall I don’t enjoy winter weather for dressing and all the freezing temps I’m excited for the holiday festivities and decorating!
  • 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?
