Outside Adventures

When we first moved to Sudbury in June, we attempted a walk through the nearby conservation area. Well we didn't make it far in because of all the mosquitoes! A week ago we decided to go exploring there again since all the mosquitoes have disappeared. We walked all the way to the other end of the conservation area. The trees were gorgeous! Glimpses of red leaves were peeking out all over the place. It had rained the day before so the trail was a bit mucky and we encountered a snake, frog and a big fuzzy caterpillar.

Birch trees are everywhere up here!

We passed a man walking with two dogs. Adam was using a walking stick and this dog kept nudging Adam's hand until he passed over the stick. Then the dog took off with it.

Look at those red and orange colours peeking out!

My recently dyed hair matched some of the trees.

I would love to live in one of these houses at the end of the conservation area. It'd be nice to be so close to a gorgeous walking trail.

After seeing all these trees turning colour at this conservation area, we're hoping to check out a couple more places in the next few weeks. One place on our to-do list is the French River. It's supposed to be gorgeous there!

It's only Monday, and I'm already dreaming about future weekend plans ^_^

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…
