So my big news... well, it's not huge news but then again it is. Adam was offered a job last week in Sudbury, Ontario. Which means next month we're moving 5 hours up North.

I'm still in shock and trying to process the whole situation. Everything has happened really quickly and Adam has been in Sudbury working already.

I'm beyond excited and proud of Adam for getting a paramedic job and I know that he's thrilled to start a job that he went to school for. Though, it's a little overwhelming at the moment.

I've been up there a handful of times now with Adam, both last year and this year for job testing. I've never actually been there outside of the Winter months. I'm excited to see Sudbury when everything is green!

One thing that excites me is that Sudbury is called the 'City of Lakes'. There's 330 lakes within the city and I plan on exploring them all! Not only are their a handful of beaches there I can go to throughout the summer, but I can only imagine the walks and hikes me and Adam will go on!

And why the picture of the nickel? There's a giant nickel (a 30-foot replica) off of the highway there because of the nickel mining in Sudbury. Oh, and there's a pretty cool Science Centre there too that I'm excited to check out!

So here's to new adventures!

  1. Hope your move goes well and you find a nice place to live!

  2. How exciting for you both!! Congratulations to Adam- he must be thrilled to get the job he's been working towards :) THREE HUNDRED AND THIRTY lakes?!?! I cannot imagine how that many can fit in one city! Looking forward to seeing the pictures from your new walks, and your new home. xxx

  3. Lucky!!! I would love to live around so many lakes! :)

  4. I commented earlier but not sure if came through! Congrats to Adam on his new role! Good luck on your adventures in Sudbury x

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…
