I am so excited that today is the launch of my site as well as its Canada’s birthday. I love birthdays. I feel it is a day set aside to honour and celebrate the life of a person and therefore its a big deal (in my opinion) and I like to do big celebrations for birthdays. Since its not just one persons birthday but its a whole country’s birthday that means an extra big party! How do you celebrate Canada Day? I love the fact that Canada Day is a holiday (for most people) and in my books that means family time which I absolutely love. I will spend the day at the cottage most likely monitoring my now mobile baby and watching my busy toddler all from my seat on the dock. Im sure we will do some boating and sea dooing since by babies are water babies they love to spend as much time in and on the water as they can. I know we will eat lots of food and consume yummy (non alcoholic for the babies) drinks because a party isn’t a party without great food. No party is complete without a party outfit. Here is my idea of a Canada Day outfit:

Canada-Day

Hat  Sunglasses Shirt Shorts Sandals Bag Towel Cup

I am proud to say I am Canadian and I want to publicly say a huge thank you to every single man and woman who have fought for the freedom we enjoy here in Canada. Their sacrifices made it possible for me to be able to live in this gorgeous country and raise my babies with luxuries that are not readily available to people in other parts of the world. So my little family and I will celebrate today and remember with hearts full of thankfulness to those who have gone before, given and are still giving to keep our country safe! Cheers to a free country and a day well spent celebrating with family! *Pop the bubbly*

  • 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!
