  • 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

  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
  • Woke up to the most beautiful white snow and was immediately thankful it was snow and not the rain they are calling for - thankful that the kiddies have snow to play in (which makes them so happy) and thankful that we have different seasons to experience. It’s amazing how a grateful heart changes your out look on things. There is a lot I could chose to complain about today but where I put my thoughts is my choice and will definitely effects my  entire day! Look for the positives in your day focus on those and don’t give negative thoughts a place in your heart and mind!
  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!
  • If you missed it we have a family update up on the blog!
  • After 13 days together this guys Christmas holidays came to an end and I’m not the only one sad about it... little people keep asking “how many more minutes till daddy gets home?” Thankful for how hard he works but safe to say @tspinksy your people miss you!
  • 2018 you were the year of crazy adventure from moving to a new city, saying yes to another foster baby, a new school, new relationships - A year of change and challenge but we are ending the year full of excitement for 2019 and thankful for all that 2018 taught us!
