My Life in Photos

The weeks have been flying by and summer is almost over. This month is going to go by quickly since I'm still prepping for Fan Expo, which is at the end of the month, and then a week later we're moving. It's going to be crazy.

I just need kitty ears now. #nerd #hellokitty
A late birthday present... Hello Kitty glasses!
A spur of the moment picnic when we went to Hamilton last. Ontario Blueberries Sitting on his butt like Seymore. #catsofinstagram #blackcat
He's learning from Seymore how to sit on his butt... Seymore Logan
This just melts my heart.
Evening Walk
There were a few Canadian geese along the path one evening. Evening Walk
And then we were being surrounded... Evening Walk Evening Walk Evening Walk Evening Walk
You can see the moon already. Just waiting for the parents to show up so we can go out for dinner. Drive-in
We decided to go to the drive-in last night. We saw The Watch and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Both movies were alright. Nothing amazing but not a waste of money either. We just wanted to finally go to the drive-in out here since we'll be moving soon. Richard Ayoade (Moss from The IT Crowd) was probably the best part about The Watch. The movie had its funny moments but it wasn't super great. I enjoyed Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter more than I expected. The actors were alright and the fighting kept me entertained. I just kept calling Abe's wife Ramona (from Scott Pilgrim).

Swirling my tea... Secret Weapon by Davids Tea Intermission #drivein
They had the best retro intermission cartoons. I ended up with a few bug bites, but overall it was a great night.

How is your week going? Have any fun summer activities planned? Besides a couple of barbecues at my parents' and maybe possibly hitting up Festival of Friends, I doubt we'll be doing much for the rest of August. It'll be work, sewing and packing for me.

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…
