My Life in Photos

The last couple of weeks have been busy for us personally.... there's been birthday parties for cousins and for my Mom. We've been invited to dinners and barbecues. And there's a couple new animal family members that now belong to our cousins. It's been fun visiting family and enjoying the nice weather.

We've been heading out for more walks in the evenings and last Friday we encountered the huge crowd gathered for IlluminAqua. The Jim Cuddy Band was playing. Once we got back to our place, I could hear him perfectly from my living room. I'm pretty excited because the next show in June has Meaghan Smith opening and I'm a huge fan of hers. The best part is that the floating stage is less than a 5 minute walk from my apartment.

We spent the rest of our long weekend out at garage sales, having a picnic and doing some fishing along the canal. Holiday Monday was spent indoors so I could photograph my zipper pouches. The kitties slept most of the day while I worked.

The blossoms are gone now... the trees are filled with leaves.

Look at the freckles on his nose!! I love my ginger kitty.

It's so nice that it's Friday again. I'm off tomorrow, though, we have a full day planned. I'm back to work Sunday so it doesn't feel like a weekend exactly.

Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?

  1. Cute photos. How did you get all the animals to pose so beautifully?!! Whenever I take a photo of one of my pets they always move just when I take the shot! I've not heard of the IluminAqua - looks great though. I like the idea of a floating stage :-)

    1. The cats rarely will stay still in photos, especially Logan. Thankfully, they sleep in adorable poses so I can take photos of them then.

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…
