My Life in Photos

April has been a very busy month for me. We've been able to squeeze in a couple of walks but not as many as I'd like. It doesn't help that we've had rain or wet snow almost every day over the last week.

Birthday Cake Tea
I ordered a couple of teas from David's Tea earlier last week. I bought 'Birthday Cake' and 'Jolly Jellybean'. They are soooo good! I cannot wait to place another order on the site and get a couple more flavours.

The Birthday Cake tea actually has sprinkles in it!

Chocolate Mint Cake
Last weekend, we celebrated Adam's birthday. We went out for dinner and then had a relaxing night at home. I made him a chocolate-mint cake which tasted amazing! I put crushed mint Oreos on top of the cake. It was very decadent.

I have the day off tomorrow so we're spending the morning hitting up garage sales. I'm pretty excited!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. Mmm! Your chocolate mint cake looks incredible!!! Wow. Ok. I'm totally adding that to my recipe wish list. Great blog and photos. The blossoms are gorgeous! You're quite a good photographer!

    1. Thank you... about the cake and photos! The cake was pretty easy... added peppermint extract to a chocolate cake mix and then I made peppermint buttercream. I definitely recommend it!

  2. Bit late in catching up with you, but was off-line unintentionally for about 3 weeks just after Easter. Saw you on Blogging Buddies and am dropping in to invite you to follow me at where I post about the plushies I make, mend and otherwise create and then try to sell at Hope to see you there soon. Meanwhile, all the best. Isobel

    1. Thank you for stopping by! Your plushies are incredibly sweet!

  3. The birthday cake tea looks cool! :)

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…
