My Life In Photos

My life has been all about Christmas pretty much the past couple of weeks.... shopping, baking, writing out cards, putting up decorations... And I'm not complaining because I love this time of year! 

This is the first year we've had a Christmas tree and I was very excited to put it up. Our tree has been up for almost a month and Seymore hasn't broke it yet! The bottom branches are a bit bent and we've had to move all ornaments up a couple of feet, but other than that, the tree is working out!

I recently came across Itty Bittys at Hallmark and died of cuteness! I suggest you check out the link and swoon over all the little cuties. These two little guys came home with me to join my other Christmas decorations. 

The kitties have been melting my heart lately. They keep cuddling and cleaning each other <3

The snow! The weather keeps coating us in snow which turns the outdoors into a beautiful Winter Wonderland.

While Christmas shopping I picked up these for myself because how could I not?!

One of our date nights recently was seeing Mockingjay Part 1 which I loved! It didn't leave much out from the book which I really enjoyed.

Winter is here which means I'm rewatching Gilmore Girls again. 

Have you been enjoying the Christmas season?

  1. Oooo, such cute kitties and so much snow! I love when our kitties cuddle. Here, we haven't gotten any snow and it's the warmest December yet. *sob* We want a white Christmas and Yule!!! I love the holiday cheer. ^_^

  2. I love trees in the snow. So lovely! I love the Christmas season as well - with all our lights and decorations up things just seems so extra cozy all the time.

  3. You look stunning! Glad to hear your Christmas tree has survived the kitties so far xxx

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…
