Start of School Reflections

With a new school year, and a fresh start for Rowen because we started a different preschool, I have been doing a lot of reflecting at the difference a year can make. I mean I know what a difference a year can make. I have had years of huge loss with family and friends passing …

Sweet Sweet Summertime

Hi everyone, I have been MIA for a few quick months because I was busy having too much fun this summer. I had every intention of taking some time to write and blog but when given the chance to be outside and have fun I will always pick that! Hence, this post. Summertime fun. So …

Do you ever wonder… what will our children remember?

Last week Fraser spontaneously let two days off lead into almost a week and a half off and it was amazing. Fraser doesn't have a regular Monday to Friday, 9-5 job and although it comes with challenges it has so many perks. One being flexible time off! With him home it gave us evenings together. …

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 …

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.

Lately I have been struggling with staying focused enough to sit down and write, staying awake while writing and finding a topic that I want to write about. I sit down and start to type and my mind is in a million places, I am tired and I have too much to say so I …

My wish for my kids… an “ordinary” life.

All my life I have been searching and dreaming. I wanted the best clothes, more money, success in a career and movement. I love learning and wanted to constantly be growing. But instead of focusing on the now I was busy caught up in future plans and dreams. Today I realized that without even trying …
