You Only Have 1 Life, hope your LIVING it!

Have you ever felt like who am I to deserve all this?  Even this week, a week with lots of ups and downs in our house, sitting here looking back on it I feel like we are so lucky and wonder what did I do to deserve this?  I have worked so hard to create …

 Compromise in the Kitchen… 

Since posting about our renovation I have been asked lots about our kitchen so I thought I would share some of the things I learnt and loved or wish we had done differently for those thinking of redoing their own kitchen!  I can’t believe it but we have almost lived in the space for a …

Give Thanks

Holidays have always been big in my family, my mom made sure to celebrate each and every holiday.  Whether it was homemade cards, special food or new outfits and gifts... often it was all of that!  What made it even more special was that we always had a big family that lived close so we …

Our Happy Place

MIA- Busy playing and resting!

I Promise …

Today marks Auntie Mona's 53rd Birthday, and September 15th marked the 6th Anniversary of the day she passed away.  Now my Aunt was more than an Aunt to myself and my two sisters.  She was my Moms only sister and she was our second Mom. We grew up with a single Mom who worked full …
