My Life in Photos

September was all about welcoming the cooler Autumn weather and buying up all my favourite Fall things!

Our first weekend in September was spent in Hamilton/Toronto for a wedding. It was a nice weekend and we ended it with a visit to the local comic book store where I fell in love with all the Pop! Vinyl toys. I controlled myself and only purchased some graphic novels.

I want them all! #popvinyl #funko #LCS #toygeek

We still find it strange that when we start to see the rock on the side of the road, we know we're getting near home. The Canadian Shield is crazy and it's more crazy to think how much rock they had to remove to make the highways up here.

Seeing the rock along the highway is now a sign I'm heading home. #northernontario #canadianshield

I stocked up on hot chocolate and sprinkles at The Bulk Barn. I'm so excited to use the black sugar sprinkles!

Stocked up at the Bulk Barn... Salted caramel hot chocolate, candy cane hot chocolate, black sugar, monster mix and autumn leaves sprinkles! #halloween #autumn #sprinkles

When we were in Hamilton my Mom gave me this bag of coffee that her and my Dad picked up when they went shopping in the U.S. It smells sooooo good! It doesn't really have a candy corn taste. But there's definitely a sweeter flavour to it.

I can't even explain how amazing this smells! Thank you Mom and Dad <3 #candycorn #coffee

Of course I placed a Davids Tea order for some new Fall flavours. Sugar and Spice may be one of my new favourites! As soon as I opened it, it reminded me of gingerbread cookies. It tastes delicious too. Similar to a chai.

My Davids Tea order is here! Sugar and Spice and Mom's Apple Pie! I'm excited to try the mystery tea and Cocoberry samples. #davidstea #autumn

I picked the perfect day to hit up Bath and Body Works this month. They were giving out a free candle with any home fragrance purchase. And the best part is, the free candle actually smells really good!

All stocked up on Autumn candles - Cider Lane, Pumpkin Carving, Marshmallow Fireside and Harvest Gathering (which was free!) #bathandbodyworks #autumn #fall

Our evenings are getting darker and darker... the sunsets have still been gorgeous though.

Ramsey Lake was gorgeous tonight. #sunset #nofilter #northernontario #ramseylake

The cats have mostly been curling up on the couch together, sleeping in their cat bed, or snuggling with this green blanket in the second bedroom. You know it's colder when Seymore is ok with me putting a blanket over him. He actually stayed like this for a while (probably until I stepped foot in the kitchen. I'm normally followed in there).

Seymore and Logan

So, it must have been a bit warmer this day... I cannot believe he didn't fall off the couch.


As for me, I've been living in this yellow cardigan and wearing all my leggings again!

Polka dots and a yellow cardigan <3 #redhead #cardigansforever
Autumn!! (And doing an Emma @lickmycupcakes) #fall #autumn

This season makes me so happy!

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…
