Things I Learnt in 30 (+4) Years

So today is my 34th Birthday and although I really don't think of myself as old, sometimes in some groups I am the oldest. Scary thought but take for example when I hang out with my three kids I out-age them easily, or when I am working at the farm I am "the old gal", …

My Babies Daddy

With Father's Day coming up it has had me extra grateful for my babies daddy. Here is the thing, we grew up with a single mom. So Father's Day really wasn't a special day for us as we didn't have a Father to celebrate. It never felt like we were missing out and it wasn't …

Clean Eating (with dirty kids)

Over a year ago we embarked on a lifestyle change and for the first month we followed a plan of strict clean eating. It was the start of some major changes in our house and it was amazing. After just 30 days not only had we both physically changed (by loosing some significant weight) but …

Remember when “I would raise my kids differently”

Becoming a Mom is something I never knew I wanted, if you ask anyone who knows me they will say "remember when you use to say I am never having kids". I think this has been a good lesson in never say never! Having kids has changed my life (for the better) and looking through …

Where we have been the last two months.

But instead of focusing on the now I was busy caught up in future plans and dreams. Today I realized that without even trying …

I am super honoured and also pretty excited to be working together with some pretty inspiring and enthusiastic people on this years First Annual Spring Market at the Farm.

Surrounded by LOVE

Today was a bittersweet day for us, we attended a friends Celebration of Life and were reminded that Life is precious and unpredictable and that we are surrounded by Love. Our life is far from perfect or even easy, but is anyone's? Lately I have been wanting to just shut myself in a little bubble …

Create a life you don’t need a vacation from.

So in all honesty I have what might appear to some as a fairly relaxing life, but here is thing about relaxation it is different for everyone. I may not have to be at a paying job everyday and that might seem relaxing but I still have commitments and I still have doubts or moments …

The dreaded B Word (BUDGET)

Recently a common conversation has been occurring and it revolves around the cost of raising a family and living, the cost of getting by or even trying to get ahead and of course my all time favourite subject (NEVER EVER!!!) Budgeting. We have decided to start off March by tracking our expenses. It all started …
