  • We have been experiencing the most glorious summer like weather (up until a couple days ago) but its on its way back! I am loving it but more importantly so are my babies! They like the sunshine and warm weather like their mama. We have been spending lots of time going to parks, swimming,

  • I can hardly believe we are coming up on one year in our new home that we built! My Facebook timeline reminded me of this picture I posted one year ago of my daughter peeking in on the progress of our home before we had moved in. With patio season finally here I have been busy pinning,

  • It’s Friday, Friday!! Time to celebrate it with Starbucks, donuts, chocolate, wine, french fries… one or all of the above! Just kidding… unless you want of course I would never judge! I love any chance to wear a dress and since I live in a (beautiful) province that

  • I hope you had a great long weekend! We escaped the busyness of home and headed north to the cottage for the weekend and it was the best! My babies love going to the cottage and it is just nice to live a slower pace of life while up there. The weather was really great and the best part was

  • I am alive! Sorry I’ve been MIA … I have been enjoying soaking up all the family time I can with my babies and my husband. I have tried really hard to just relax and turn off my brain, but lets me honest my brain doesn’t have an off switch although I sure wish it did. We

  • 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!
