Everyday is Family Day!

For those who don't live in BC yesterday was Family Day... and since we are nearing the end to almost 5 weeks in Maui we missed it but celebrated it here on the island with our little Fam Jam! So, I am a day late writing because we were busy playing and having fun as …

Mind, Body & Soul…

I have always loved to consider myself spiritual, but I am not sure that I was doing intentional activity to feed my soul. I have lots of beliefs on how to take time for me and to make sure mind, body and soul are all being looked after, but beliefs are different than action. My …

HELP… This Parenting Gig is Tough!

So this vacation has been amazingly good for our parenting egos, basically whenever we go out as the whole family we get at least one if not many compliments. Some are just about appearances "Oh look, they are so cute", some are more surface/conversational "you've got your hands full", but the best are "wow your …

“You must learn to master a new way to think before you can master a new way to be. “ – Marianne Williamson

This quote is kinda exactly how I feel today. It's funny because I was always searching for a way to relax a little, let go of stuff that isn't really important, appreciate what I have instead of striving for more or better and to try and live more in the now instead of dwelling on …

Lots planned for 2018, Bring on a New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I am not sure about you but I love the idea of a fresh slate and a new start, nothing is better than reflecting on the last year and all that you have (or have not) done... and then feeling like you have a whole year to work with. It's inspiring and …

Siblings by chance, friends by choice…

Today was one of those unusual days. Grace was extra loving towards both her older brother and younger sister and the kids were just extra cute towards each other. We intentionally had our kids within 3 years of each other (Rowen and Grace being just 13 months apart and Grace and Eleanor a big 15 …

Merry Everything A Happy Always!

So we celebrated our first Christmas as a family of 5, and it was great! Unfortunately our whole house was hit with a terrible flu for over a week before Christmas and honestly I think it was a bit of a blessing in disguise. It was terrible... not only was I very sick but I …

Real Housewife of A Long Shore Man

I ran in to my mentor, coach and last employer a couple weeks ago. Both of our lives have changed pretty significantly in the last 3 years and we had lots to catch up on. As we were standing there chatting she gave me a huge compliment. She commented that I looked great (always nice …
