My Life in Photos

July is over and it was a very busy but fun month! I celebrated my birthday, I had my Aunt, Uncle, and 3 cousins come stay with us for a few days, I headed back to Hamilton for two weekends, and me and Adam continued to explore Sudbury. 

We've been continuing our Bell Park walks. I went one morning on my own and came across a huge family of Canadian Geese.

We took an evening walk when my Aunt and her family came up to visit and though it was chilly, it was a beautiful evening. The water looked gorgeous.

We also checked out Dynamic Earth when they were up. They had a dinosaur exhibit going on. It was fun but also a little stressful. We did the mining tour and going 65 feet underground and walking through mines was slightly claustrophobic for me.... Dynamic Earth

We also spent a lot of time at Moonlight Beach this month. It has easily become one of my favourite places here. The beach is huge and the water is amazing. I need to spend at least a few more days there in August.  Beach time!

Surprisingly we only had ice cream once but the cones were huge!
Ice cream! #nomnomnom

We hit up a breakfast place when my Aunt was up and holy crap was it good! The servings were insanely huge and everything was really yummy! My crepe was gigantic. I shared it with three other people and I still left some on the plate.

I see some amazing sunsets from the craft room. This one was a favourite of mine because it turned the sky into cotton candy.

Of course I have to share some photos of my kitties. They did a lot of lounging this past month because of the heat.

Logan's been my craft room buddy. My craft room buddy today. He always crosses his paws when he's lounging like this. #catsofinstagram #blackcat

And well, Seymore is just a big lazy fart. He likes sleeping on his back, which makes me rub his belly. Kitty bellies are a weakness of mine!
I've only been away one day so far but I miss this farthead <3 #gingerkitty

How was July for you? Do anything fun or interesting? I'm looking forward to August. I have three different sets of guests coming up to visit us. And I have to sew my ass off for Fan Expo!

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 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 …

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…
