My Life in Photos

It's been almost one month since we moved up to Sudbury. It's been a fast month and a very busy one too. We finally went swimming at Lake Ramsey the other day and we're continuing to explore and check everything out. My Mom came up last weekend for a couple of days and we spent a lot of time driving around. We found Dynamic Earth (part of the Science Centre here) which is the home of the Big Nickel. We had quite the view of the city from there which was really nice. Oh and we also went on a moose hunt, but unfortunately didn't come across any...


Pigtails have become necessary in the heat that has finally hit us!
 It's too hot to wear my hair any other way. #pigtails #redhead

Cupcakes that were at my cousin's stag and doe - s'mores and sundae!
Cupcakes from last night! Mmmmmm... #cupcakes #smores #sundae

I made us a basic cherry chip cake when we first moved in since we were lacking in the 'treat's department. Sprinkles make everything so good!
Cake time!!! #sprinkles

Froyo date on my last visit into Hamilton.
Froyo date!

This has been my view for a lot of June... Veronica Mars and either crafting or my laptop. 
I'm thoroughly enjoying my new craft room... Veronica Mars and Etsy updating time!

Adam has decided to set up an aquarium in our bedroom with some fish so we've been to the pet store a couple of times this month. I found the cutest hamster curled up sleeping during our last visit <3
This hamster at the pet store stole my heart this afternoon <3 #animallover

I'm very happy there's ONE Starbucks in Sudbury. The cool lime refresher was so needed this day. Even the cats wanted some.
The kitties are enjoying my lime refresher as much as me <3 #Starbucks #catsofinstagram

The quick stop me and my Mom made at the Big Nickel/Dynamic Earth.

Lake Ramsey has easily become my favourite spot in Sudbury so far. I showed my Mom the boardwalk and then a couple days later me and Adam went back for a picnic lunch and a quick swim on our 2 year anniversary. We had dinner at home with wine and then went out to see Man of Steel.

It was a really fun month and we have so many other fun activities and events coming up over the next couple of months. I'm also planning on swimming at the lake at least once a week over the summer. It's way too beautiful not to.

How was your month?

  1. Love the pictures and those cupcakes look divine!

  2. Oh My word that Hamster!!! Eek!

    I've seen a picture of the big nickel before, as my friend Nick always stops to take a photo with the 'big things' whenever he does a road trip. There are so many in Canada, we have nothing like that here.

    I'm a relieved for you that there is a starbucks in your new town! I couldn't survive without the one 5 minutes from my house :-)

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…
