Life Inspiration

This was a really great weekend. I worked Friday and today but Saturday was spent all day with Adam. It was such a great day... we spent the morning going to garage sales, we went to the Welland Farmer's Market, watched a movie, then we went for a walk after a great dinner. It's days like that which fill me with happiness and inspiration to make the most out of life.

  1. These are wonderful and very inspirational. Thank you.

  2. It's lovely to read these positive messages today! I'm really happy you had a great weekend.

    Mine was a bit rubbish because I got a sick bug that left me feeling shaky and behind with everything... but at the same time so grateful that it's over!

    Big smile reading this post and thinking about the next adventure!

    1. Oh no! I hope you're feeling better.

      Spring is definitely the best time of year to get motivated and feel good about life. The sunshine and birds singing help keep me going.

  3. Great quotes, love that first one especially!

    Sounds like a fun weekend, any good garage sales finds? I haven't gone to any yet, although I see the signs starting to pop up. Don't want to wind up spending money since there isn't anything I really need right now (just a lot of things I want haha).

    1. We ended up picking up a few old X-Men comics, the first two volumes of A Series of Unfortunate Events, and I found a dress. Nothing amazing, but definitely a good start. We're going back out this Saturday, but in the city our parents live in, so we'll see how that goes.

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
