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 …

Simplify your stuff.

I don't know what it is but I can't handle clutter... it has progressively gotten worse as I have gotten older and the funny thing is Fraser is kinda the opposite. I want everything to have a purpose and a place and if it doesn't, or we are keeping it for sentimental, or potentially one …

A is for Amazing (and Autism)

My son is pretty Amazing. He is one of the most caring, thoughtful and sensitive little boys I know. I like to think all his great qualities came from me but I see so much of his Dad in him that I might not be able to take all the credit (most of it). What …

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 …

MIA- Don’t come looking, I want to stay missing forever!

So, for those who don’t know we decided to finish off our very last baby's first year earth side with a 30 day vacation to Maui.  The cool thing is my roommate*/ babydate/ common law partner was eligible to take Parental Leave so we decided why not!  Plus 2017 he worked so hard at his …
